Miracles, Healings – Dinner with Sarah

Testimony Time! Meet my dinner date Geo. He asked me, “Could you put me on your social media?” You bet I will!!😀

When I first moved to my apartment complex mid February Geo saw me sitting in the lobby and noticed my smile and the cross on my shirt (he tells me every time.)😊 He came over and asked me to pray for him. He had a deep infection in his knee. He had both legs over a year ago amputated due to sickness and had only 1 prosthetic leg. In order to get the other prosthetic leg his knee had to heal from the infection. That he had for months. Jesus and I prayed for him and we became buddies. I would bring him breakfast, we talked for hours in the lobby, he would ask me about my relationship with Jesus, I would make him dinner and then about 6 weeks ago I heard he was back in the hospital pretty much on his death bed again.

I said, “NO!”  We prayed for him. He got out of the hospital and came back home and was all better and the infection left his body!

He received his 2’nd prosthetic leg and he showed me this evening how he could get up walk a few steps and back in his wheel chair. 😀 He said let me show off what I can do now, he said it’s not pretty but I can walk. I looked at him with tears and said your right it’s not pretty it’s beautiful! 😍 I told Him I grilled steak for the first time ever and said I had way to much and asked him if he wanted to join me for dinner. He was delighted and as we were sitting outside others joined.

All I can say is,

I am so thankful God answers my prayers, “Lord send the broken and hurting ones so we can love on them and they can encounter you.”

More Miracles …

A door opened for my testimony to come out and people were like,

Wait, “What you partied, dated the wrong guys you did all that?” Saying it as they were in shock!

I said, “Yes I did, but the beautiful thing is when you surrender your life to Jesus He takes it and turns ashes into beauty.”

Next thing Jesus and I are prophesying and praying for the ones that came to the table. I’m not sharing details because I want to be respectful to my new friends. Tears were steaming and Oh! the freedom and chains that were broken off of people this evening. As I looked at my phone it’s almost 11pm. We started dinner at 7pm. The crazy thing is I had plans to deep clean my apartment this evening but when we allow God to lead the way then deep cleaning will come another day this week because Jesus wanted to deep clean the hearts of those that needed a taste of His love.

I am beyond thankful for this community of people here. 🎼We Are Family🎼🙂Also, I’m asking for you guys to be in agreement for a miracle for a friends mom that fell off a cliff.  Sarah Deeds, Associate/Youth Pastor Zion Christian Fellowship

About Sarah Deeds

The first time I met Sarah was when I was the Pastor and Director of Communications for Faith Life Now in New Albany, Ohio. Sarah was raising money to fund her trip and school at Heidi Baker’s ministry Iris Global in Mozambique S. Africa. Little did I know how special this Batzion (daughter of Zion) would become to me. Literally the Lord laid her on my heart to pray, support and keep her in my heart especially while she was away.

Since Sarah returned and I moved from Ohio, so much has happened in the natural but our spirits are still connected as one in the Lord. She is now an associate and youth pastor in Ohio and has so many other wonderful and miracle testimonies. She is not afraid to pray and tell anyone and everyone the source of her joy, strength and salvation. Please keep Sarah in your prayers now that you have met her. Also, please keep the ministries of Iris Global, Beacon of Hope, Project Purpose and fellow believers as well as the people of Mozambique. Much is happening to try to destroy God’s workers and his work. Read More Here

Spiritual Abortion An Appeal To Heaven

Embroidery.jpg
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your
book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
The enemy of God, Satan wants you to keep your eyes on the death, destruction and disappointments…. but I say, that God says, He is the ruler of the heavens and He has aborted Satan’s plans for the earth.

Bike Woman

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Pet. 5:8-9
Father, thank you for your loving kindness, your mercy, your goodness and love. Thank you for creating the earth and me and thank you for placing me in the family line that fulfills the plans and purposes you desire. Please help my children, grandchildren and lineage to come to all fulfill the purposes you have designed for them. I believe that you created everything living, and there is a realm and heavenly home and a new earth that as your daughter I will live and dwell in forever.
kids
LORD GOD JEHOVAH, I stand in agreement with your words that you have ordained a plan for each one of us and that if we will hold firm to you, that you are faithful to perfect that plan and purpose which will not only bring you glory but will bring plenty of fruitfulness in our lives.
I thank you that you have overcome the enemy and abort his plans, attacks and assignments. I thank you that no weapon formed against us will prosper and great shall be our Shalom and that shall rest on our children and their children to come.
I thank you that YOU inside of me is GREATER than the works of the flesh and the enemy that wage warfare against our souls.

Carved Vessel

I bless your Holy name. I plead the precious blood of Yeshua over myself and my family. I ask you to clean my spirit and make me a vessel of honor for you. I pray that I will not fear the enemy and that your joy will be my strength.
You surround me with your angels in the heavenlies and I declare this day that I believe and have faith in you alone. There are no other gods that I pray to or form allegiance to. I ask that you would sever all ungodly soul and spiritual ties that would keep me from declaring and walking in your divine power, authority and unconditional love.
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.” Is. 54:17
BW Vultue
I pray that you would break off any addictions, judgments, generational curses over me and that the enemy would not have an open door or foot hold in any place in my life. I repent of those things I’ve willingly or unwillingly allowed into my eyegate, eargate or mouthgate that would be a hindrance or open gate for the enemy to come in and have a foot hold to abort your plans and purposes for creating me.
You created me independant of the world and it’s resources. I thank you that I am dependant on you for my provision, protection, health and well being. You promise that you will never leave or forsake us or see your children begging for food. I thank you that I have a place to live, eat, rest and pray without ceasing. You are My King and I am your daughter that loves you. I ask that you touch my heart and spirit and open up the capacity to live, laugh and love in a greater way each day.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Cor. 10:13
I pray that as the world falls off of me, that your anointing grows and as I walk down the road, ride in my car, enter other’s dwelling places, worship areas, and in the market place that your Shekinah glory would bring salvation, deliverance and healing to those that I touch or look at.
Umbrella 1
Lord, help me to grow in your Word and to understand what I read. I pray that in the evenings when I sleep that you would speak to me through dreams and as I go throughout my day that visions would appear as I am in quiet time and communion with you.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Tim. 6:12
Lord, I pray to become a giver and that you would place wealth in my hands that I might bless others. I pray that you would provide and keep me humble in all of my affairs and opportunities to write, speak, pray, intercede and help others.
“Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” Rom. 12:21
Holy Spirit, I long to know you better and to be sensitive to your voice. I repent for ignoring you or quenching you so many times when I failed to hear your voice and obey.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor. 15:57
Jesus, I acknowlege that you died for my sins, and you are always making intercession for me in the heavenlies. Your kindness, ability to disciple and love others is beyond my ability, however I do want to be your hands and your feet in this world that you gave your life for. I thank you that you experienced such pain and suffering for me to walk in health and freedom from the sins that so easily come my way and are in my fallen nature. But, you have redeemed me and I am now a new creature ready for each new moment and divine appointment.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matt. 18:18-19
 Nevertheless
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…” Ps. 91:1-4

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17

Pray, Plant, Feed & Water, Prune & Harvest

Palm Tree.jpg

Let your [a]character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] [b]Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor [c]give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [d][I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor [e]let [you] down ([f]relax My hold on you)! [[g]Assuredly not!] Hebrews 13:5 AMPC

I’m sitting here this morning asking the Lord, What is next, Lord? Of course my flesh thinks about all of the seemingly missed opportunities, hopes, & dreams, and then the Lord reminds me of all the flowers, shrubs, trees, jewels and treasures I’ve been privy to. The blessings of His goodness, mercy & bounty are immeasurable.

My mind continues to wander from the thoughts and hopes I had as a little girl sitting in the naval orange tree in my back yard and the conversations between me and God. At the time I didn’t know about Jesus, Holy Spirit and the person of Abba as Father. I think I saw Him through the eyes of the movie I saw about a Catholic Nun.

In this story I remember thinking in the life is a fairy tale version, “she is so beautiful” but she is married to God. She has given up having a husband, children, a house with a white picket fence. How is that possible to love God so much and to give all of that up for Him? You can’t even see God. But, I knew He was the Creator and that you could see what He created, the birds, the bugs, the squirrels, the trees, and the oranges. I was always fascinated by the naval orange. It had a belly button just like me.

navel orange

The Navel Orange originated from a single tree that was planted in Brazil in 1820. This tree had a mutation, causing two oranges to be produced within one single piece of fruit. The second orange, developing at the bottom of the fruit, opposite the stem, is where the Navel Orange gets its name, as that second orange vaguely resembles a human navel. The secondary orange is of vast importance, because it causes the orange to be seedless.

My brother Doug taught me to peel off the thick outside with my thumbs to get to the big sections on the inside and pop the entire piece in my mouth to avoid the juice running down my mouth. Sometimes this wasn’t possible with the size of the navel on our tree and in spite of getting this distinct chafing from the citrus on my chin, I continued to devour these delicacies.

Navels were seedless so you couldn’t collect the seeds like from other oranges in our yard. Doug also taught me to collect those seeds in the side of my mouth as I was eating until I got to the last section and then I could fire them from my mouth like a machine gun! Rat a tat tat tat tat tat tat….

I knew all about seeds. I knew that some seeds had to be planted at certain depths in order to grow and that you had to water and add fertilizer around the root of the plant or the tree. I would help my dad in our orange grove get fertilizer in the galvanized bucket and use my hand to spread the fertilizer around the base of each tree. Then I would take the water hose and water it.

Navel oranges had to be propogated (a big word I didn’t know then) from the tree themselves and so you couldn’t plant the seeds in the ground like you could watermelons, greens, tomatoes and other fruits and plants.

When I asked God about this He said, “Pray, Plant, Feed & Water, Prune and Harvest.”  I could understand the plant, feed, water, prune and harvest, but “PRAY.” God was teaching me as a little girl about prayer and how important it is to put this first, especially if I was going to fulfill the destiny and dreams that He had for me. He created the earth for them to enjoy…

Human Beings
As a child God taught me before ever reading the Bible, going to church, or having someone witness to me that He is our Creator and I am His Creation. Each person comes into this world and is given a choice to believe this is true or not. This is called faith. I can either accept this truth or spend my life disputing it. But, one of the first things I have to do is trust that God is real and that He doesn’t lie. I have to partake of this fruit in order to enjoy it. God created the orange, and then He gave man the ability to actually improve on our ability to enjoy it without seeds. But you could ask my daddy sometimes it is a lot easier to propagate and trust what man does, than to have faith in God that a planted seed is going to come forth in it’s due season. Some seeds lay dorment for years.

--orange-grove-old-florida

Another scene in the nun movie I watched was the nun took a vow of silence for a year. This was so she could pray, talk and listen to God. I found this even more of a challenge for me since I was the child whose “tongue was loose on both ends,” as my daddy would say.

I believe this was when in my heart of hearts I knew God was wooing me to Him in a close and personal way. In my child’s mind I took it as an invitation to always be able to come to Him to pray, talk, listen and be willing to obey. I took it as a vow between us that He would always be there for me. The Creator of the Universe wanted a relationship with this little farm gal from Sanford, Florida. Little did I know how important this choice would be for me, my children and their children to come! God never asks us to give up anything that isn’t for our own good.

Maters, Taters and Mama

elmer-dee-doug-marlene-baggs

Addie Odee Collier Baggs 11/22/1926 – 7/3/1973

Addie Odee Collier was born in Courtland, Alabama on November 22, 1926. She was a decendant of the Echota Cherokee Indian tribe. She quickly became “Dee” as a young woman when she landed a top level security clearance at Oakridge, Tennessee Atomic Plant. She would come home on the weekends to Alabama and waitressed making extra money. Her stories of losing friends from explosions while carrying radioactive explosives were very scary to us as children.

 

My dad met my mom when he was stationed in the Airforce in Alabama. He was immediately attracted to my mom’s beauty, wit and charm. Many of the “officers” were after her, but he was determined she was the one for him, especially when she would slip him rationed cigarettes she would auction off on a “punch board” at the diner. After many attempts he was finally able to capture her heart, and they started writing while he was stationed in Egypt and then later Boca Raton.

One weekend my mom and dad eloped in Marietta, Georgia and she moved back to Boca Raton, Florida with my dad. She went to work for Winn Dixie as a cashier.  With the special training and her experience working in restaurants she opened a restaurant. The military then transferred them to Wyoming where they had newspaper clippings of cows being frozen standing up. Being from the South, they knew they weren’t going to stay there long!

When my dad’s term was up, they moved back to warmer weather to help his dad with their farm and orange grove in Montverde, Florida. My dad also took a job with a packing house and train depot, and attended agricultural school to get his degree. My mom opened another restaurant and they built their first home together themselves. Neither of them were lazy people. Shortly after my they closed the depot, my mom and dad decided to buy a small produce stand in Sanford, Florida.

When you asked my mom about meeting my dad, she would always say she was just baiting him, the entire time she was dating him! She had always wanted to be an actress and she and my dad had a loving and passionate marriage, even a little bit of drama, comedy and tragedy. My dad was stubborn, steady and easy going, and my mom was even more stubborn, but adventureous and not afraid to take risks. She found much joy and happiness in their move to Sanford. They were successful in living and loving life there. Anyone that knew her well knew along with being a spitfire, she had one of the most loyal, passionate and giving hearts imaginable. She would often say,

“You don’t mess with my money, my children or my man… and not necessarily in that order!”

My mom passed way on July 3, 1973. It was a shock to her family, friends and community. Her father Emmett Collier had just passed away on May 31, 1973.

I find it ironic this was the day before their business anniversary of July 4th, and she was buried on July 5th, my younger brother’s 16th birthday. For many years I thought this was sad, but looking back I believe the Lord helped us to remember her, and how important she was and still is to our family.

Coton fields.jpg

My mom was raised in Alabama and spent many a day in the cotton fields as a child. She barely graduated the eighth grade. But many years of hard work, learning a trade, and sheer Alabama determination taught her to help my father build a successful business that is still in existence today (July 3, 2018).  They would rise early before the sun was up and many times not go to bed until late in the evening, sometimes working 16-20 hour days. She always made certain we had clean, ironed clothes, a hot fresh meal waiting for us before and after school, then would come home and make my dad his dinner every night after they closed the market. As a child we spent many an hour or two in a playpen and working right by her side.

I had just turned 18. She was very sick and unable to come to my highschool graduation. Many were shocked when she passed and didn’t even realize she had been quite ill for a long time. She was one of the hardest working women I’ve ever known and my dad told me later, “Your mom was determined that you kids would grow up, graduate high school and not have to work like she did.” This helped me understand the “work ethic” my mom and dad’s generation had. They were raised in the depression era. I believe this fear of not being able to provide for your family led to many battles during my mom’s life.

Baggs Market

Baggs Market, Baggs Fruit & Produce, The Stand, Baggs Bait & Tackle, Baggs Wholesale Market, Baggs Drive In

I have so many stories both of her courage and hardships endured. I don’t ever remember my mom complaining. In fact I had to force her to go to the doctor the week before she passed. She enjoyed her life but I realize now, that she was often in a lot of pain. She had very bad varicose veins and standing all day on concrete year after year took it’s toll on her body. She encouraged us as young adults to “follow your dreams and passions.”

About Baggs Market
Established July 4, 1954

 

Baggs Curb Market

Local Sanford Artist

 

In 1954, Elmer and his wife Addie Odee  Collier “Dee” Baggs started Baggs Market. Still nestled among a mighty oak, in Sanford, Florida, the stand as family and friends call it, was surrounded by woods, small animals and the loud boom of jets breaking the sound barrier as they took flight from the Sanford Naval Air Station. The Blue Angels would do training flights and the Baggs family would enjoy watching these private air shows while Elmer told stories about his adventures in Africa. The market now owned and run by the youngest son, Keith, sits very much as it did originally 64 years ago. The parking lot is crowded with customers buying fresh fruit, vegetables, hot boiled peanuts, and live bait.

You can now see and hear planes taking off and landing at nearby Sanford International Airport we are just missing the sonic boom from the Navy Jets back in the day!

watermelons

“July 4th, 1954, was our grand opening,” my daddy said. “Fresh fruit and produce filled hampers and wooden boxes. Watermelons were piled high like Egyptian pyramids. Doug (the eldest son) was in a playpen and your momma was pregnant with you.” “Customers came out of the woods along with service men and woman who were flying home for the holiday,” Elmer continued. “Everyone was delighted to find the stand and the seemingly mile high pile of juicy watermelons.”


They earned enough money that first weekend to pay off their business loan!

Baggs Curb Market quickly became a friendly place to go. Dee’s outgoing personality and Elmer’s hearty laugh and good looks fit right into this growing city. Dee would pick out produce for customers. They didn’t even have to get out of their cars. One customer recalls Dee saying, “Bring your baby in and I’ll weigh her anytime.”

Baggs market bw
This July 4th, they will celebrate 64 years. I bet you can even still bring your baby in and get him/her weighed on the scales!

Mom, you are gone but not forgotten. I praise the Lord for such a wonderful mom. We miss and love you! Doug, Marlene & Keith

 

 

 

Preparing for Spiritual Storms

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

Hurricane DonnaPreparation for the Battle

When I was a little girl Hurricane Donna hit my hometown like a bulls eye in Sanford, Florida. This storm was the strongest storm to hit Florida since 1935. It originated in Dakar, Africa made her way across the Atlantic Ocean, through S. Florida, Ft. Myers before turning on Central Florida and up the East Coast all the way to Greenland. Donna exited Florida at Daytona Beach on September 11, 1960, She killed 489 people wreaking over $980 million in damage. Today we would be looking at $8,329,668,918.92.

donna bw

During the eye of the storm, all was quiet and we peeked outside to see downed trees and debris and felt it was safe to let out our German Sheperd “Bootsie” to go to the bathroom. In any hurricane, tornado or cyclone of this strength it is important to remember just because the fury of the first part of the storm has passed, a quiet doesn’t mean the storm has passed. To our dismay it wasn’t long before the second half of fierce Hurricane Donna began to show warning signs to get back to cover as she continued to wreak havoc. The forceful winds now moving in the opposite direction caused us all to take cover inside.

Prayer for the Battle

Our family cried because that was the last time we ever saw our beloved dog Bootsie. We continued to search for her; until we finally had to give up hope. She was lost forever. I know the LORD cries about the souls that are lost in the midst of life’s storms. He wants us to pray for eyes to be opened and lost souls to recognize they need a Savior;

“To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’Acts 26:18

The Truth Shall Set you free BW

The truth is that without a relationship with God we will be eternally lost if we aren’t saved when a fatal storm comes our way, and our faith is not in Jesus Christ.

When preparing for spiritual battle understand that you are not fighting against an enemy that is fleshy, natural or normal. You are battling against forces of evil that are inhumane, supernatural, and abnormal. The enemy is merciless. By humbly calling on the Lord,  to have mercy on us, He is certain to help and enable us to fight those spiritual, physical or emotional battles.

Prepare by filling iour tub with the power and presence of God.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth, listening to God’s instructions.
Feed yourself on the meat of God’s Word. Read and study daily.
Understand that your weapons are not carnal but they are spiritual and the greatest spiritual weapon you have is God’s love for you and for the world.
Don’t get caught in the eye of the storm without the Holy Spirit!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17

 


Your ability and strength in spiritual warfare are directly related to your personal relationship with God in all three of His persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Fathers, We Need You! You are Soul Care Providers

I was sitting in a coffee shop thinking about Father’s Day and asking God what He wanted me to share.  There have been many influential fathers in my lives. Pictured above and below are just a few of some of the ones I know personally.

While I was writing I was privy to a conversation of a young man talking about the soon coming birth of his son. He described it, like being in the midst of a hurricane that is soon approaching.”

He went on to basically describe, “His newfound fatherhood is like a flurry of preparing for an uncontrollable event that he knew would radically change his life forever.”

He added, “My baby boy is running around inside my wife’s belly kicking and screaming. He is coming… and he will be here soon!” 

Then a few weeks ago this man’s unborn son went from kicking and lots of active movement in his mother’s womb to no activity and no respiratory score. Thankfully, after testing and waiting, they found out the baby is fine. I know this must have been especially scary, since this couple has been married for over 14 years and this is their first pregnancy.

He was talking with a couple about helping build non-profit sustainability programs  in Alaska. From their conversation I believe he will make a great dad and provider.

I love how the Lord will seat people right next to you who have the same heart and passion for souls and discipleship. I believe this confirms what God is calling us as believers to do in this hour.  I call these individuals Soul Care Providers.

Fatherhood

I’ve known many mothers and fathers who have gone through trials and tribulations regarding their children. Whatever the storm, God has it under control.

“Jesus is walking through the storm to get to your boat.” Cynthia Pettis

In 1993 I went to work for a young man and his wife who had waited over a decade for their first son. It was such a blessing when this little boy was born! This family now has three grown children and they have been such a model for other parents as well as an example of the Father’s love for His children.

This picture on the left is of Johnny Blue Craig Sr. and his son Johnny Blue Jr. This picture was  created for a prepaid phone card and a promotional ad for a Fatherhood Campaign. There is only a short window of time we have as parents and especially fathers to influence the next generation. The picture on the right is Johnny Blue, April and their three grown children.

We need fathers to come to the revelation that you become a father when life is conceived and you are a “father and soul care provider” even before your baby arrives.

Soul Care Providers ~ Fathers we need you desperately…

So, it is in the case of
hurricanes, tsunamis,
crisis, trauma and lost souls.

Storms of life come suddenly and how can we prepare
and provide soul care without the fathers who love the Father of all Fathers?

Fathers, Soul Care Providers, We Need You!

Onward Christian Soldiers
Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before
Onward then, ye people
Join our happy throng
Blend with ours your voices
In our triumph song
Christ the royal master
Leads against the foe
Forward into battle
See His banners go
Crowns and Thrones may perish
Kingdoms rise and wane
But the cross of Jesus
Constant will remain
