  1. All of Me

From the recording All of Me

<p>"ALL Of ME" is the last of the 12 songs on our CD "HELP ME I AM LOST" about our true life experiences in walking with God. The spiritual journey that started with a declaration of God`s love for us as portrayed in Ken`s song "I GAVE IT ALL TO YOU" now ends with my song: "LORD I GIVE YOU ALL OF ME".</p>
<p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Indeed, in looking back I see that the songs on this album have portrayed our walk with Jesus</strong>:</span></p>
<li>His love in calling us to come to Him and find forgiveness and rest for our souls...</li>
<li>His love in leading us through hardships and drawing us closer to Him in this process of change and&nbsp;</li>
<li>His love for us in bringing us to a genuine and total surrender to Him through good and hard times.&nbsp;</li>
<p>This ongoing work of love, I suppose will only end on the day we go home to be with Him eternally.</p>

<p>One can not say that our story is one of..."and so they lived happily ever after", but would I choose all of this again? Absolutely yes! We are now settled in the North of America and sometimes tease each other with:</p>
<p>"Gee wouldn't it be nice to live in America one day?"</p>
<p>There are rivers of deepness and a closeness to the everlasting Father that He blesses us with that I don't think would've happened if I went my own way. I will not exchange God's presence for all the gold in this world. To say that we do not live happily ever after is also incorrect. God provides for our needs every day (through the wonderful piano students&nbsp;He sends my way) just like He promises in His Word and we have the peace and love and joy that only the presence of Jesus can bring, but as far as happiness...? By "happiness" I meant...</p>
<p>"....So the Prince and Princess then lived happily ever after in the Utopian American dream of health, wealth, prosperity and worldly success." And that has not happened to us. In fact we have been rather broken in those things and in our lofty ideals of selfish ambition. Now you may wonder...then how can you say to me: "Follow Jesus"?</p>
<p>If an easy life of health, wealth an prosperity were the purpose of following Jesus, then people would accept Him for the wrong reasons. Jesus did not come to make us rich and give us an easy life, otherwise everyone would choose Him, the King of Kings, with false motives. &nbsp; No, He is the King Who became a pauper for our sakes to deliver us from ourselves. And to make us fall in love with Him for the faithful, truthful, almighty, gentle and loving Person He is. Not for "What can I get out of Him? How can I use Him?" &nbsp;</p>
<p>The News is GOOD! He has risen from the dead and He has gone to prepare a place for us (those who choose to follow Him) and there we will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.</p>
<p>What do you think is the most beautiful place on earth? Trillion that, times&nbsp;over and over and you won't even get close to how incredibly beautiful it will be in heaven where there will be no crime, no hunger, no sickness, no selfishness, no tears...just absolute pure joy. (No, it won't be boring because the Bible states that there will be wonderful things for us to do.) Jesus is preparing an unimaginable beautiful place for us and that is what us born again Christians call: "HOME". The place of perfect love and peace and safety with the Lord.</p>
<p>To be loved by our Heavenly Father and fellowship with Him and my beloved Ken in such a close way makes me say with all my heart: "Truly the Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want"</p>
<p>It is our hope that God will use this Web to His glory.</p>
