Being at home

Being at home is not always very fun...I start missing the days when I did nothing...or woke up at any time!! And of course being away from home means being away from nagging parents. So when I come back home to my mum, she starts to get on my nerves. Probably sounds bad but sorry! I'm just used to silence when watching the tv...that kind of thing.
Coming back home is a good thing too because obviously i get to spend more time with Zarah. It's so much hard work though, looking after her and playing with her, it's unbelievable the amount of energy she has.
There's one thing especially that I love when I come home is that I get to go to Jubilee Church :) I love that church...there's something about it...
Jubilee church is part of the New Frontiers group and suprisingly we gather in a cinema screen:) It's amazing. I get to take Zarah:) and she loves going to church. She loves the worship...she sings and dances and praises the Lord:)
Church today was very cool...we did Romans 8...good followup from CU on thursday:)
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus"....Amazing...Just to think that no matter what we do, there will be no condemnation and no guilt. The speaker took as example of someone in court...the judge saying that he's not guilty...the guy won't just sit there saying no but I am guilty...he'll leave and tell everyone that he was found not guilty... it's the same for christians...we are found not guilty..for all that we could have done has been dealt with on the cross...we should therefore live without guilt. I don't know if i'm making much sense at the moment. Anyway it was great.
We ended singing "In Christ Alone"... When I saw the lyrics on the screen, I just wanted to cry...It took me all the way back to "my begining" back to RUCU houseparty 2005. I thought of Tim, Ceryn, that piano next to the dining room. I sang that song with all my heart. Today that song had such a different impact on me than it did I don't know how many months ago. The Lord is amazing...and no better words to explain what He means to me than the lyrics to "In Christ Alone":
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my
strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
In Christ alone, who tookon flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save'Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost it's grip on me
For I am His and He ismine
Brought with the precious blood of Christ
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power ofChrist in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
