Beautiful

Beautiful

You are precious to me, my child
And I’ve never left your side
Though you think I’ve left you far behind
Am I powerless to save you?
Do you think I cannot hear?
Is it possible that I could be so blind?

Knowing the Word

Knowing the Word

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” [John 6:51]

How can we really know Jesus if we never hear His words? How can we live like He did if we don’t know how He lived? And how can we follow Him if we don’t know where He’s going? It’s imperative that we stay close to Him so that we don’t lose our way. But how can we stay close to Him if we’re not even watching Him or listening to Him?

Have we indeed resigned ourselves only to follow our church leaders, speakers, authors, and other believers, and trusting everything they tell us all the time, instead of reading and learning and asking God Himself to reveal His truths to us? […]

Don’t Make a Resolution: Be Resolute!

Don’t Make a Resolution: Be Resolute!

Ultimately, those who are successful don’t make resolutions for success. They find success because of the resolve they establish before they begin. They set their hearts and minds on something greater and they pursue that change for that greater purpose. They do not waver. Instead, they sacrifice. They put their wants and desires behind them and do all the hard things until they get through the change, the circumstance, or the ordeal. They persevere, relentlessly, until it has been achieved or overcome.

If you intend to make a change in your life[…]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

So I really have to admit, I just don’t understand this whole “political correctness” thing in regards to the traditional Christmas greeting. For 30 years I lived in a world of non-Christians who cheerfully celebrated this holiday with open arms. Nobody I knew really professed any great faith, but we all looked forward to this time of year, giving and accepting gifts, and enjoying the […]

Going Your Own Way

Going Your Own Way

We often wonder as kids that,  if I’m obedient to my parents, if I actually do what they tell me to do – if I take their advice, am I really leading my own life? Am I making my own decisions? And it’s a hard question. And ultimately we rebel because we want to be able to show that we can do our own thing. We […]

The Little Things

The Little Things

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” — Luke 16:10 NIV

While Jesus spoke these words to admonish us to take care in handling what’s been entrusted to us, it’s interesting to see how this truth applies to us in the way in which we deal with our relationships; especially the one we have with Him. We all use this truth to gauge how far we will go in trusting others…

Overflowing

Overflowing

Life sure can be overwhelming, to the point I feel so sick inside
The world appears to feed on my fears, and it seems I have no place to hide

Lord, I don’t know where I’m going, though I certainly know where I’ve been
Can you guide me along this path that seems wrong?
Let me fall back in your arms once again…

In the Middle

In the Middle

I want to be in the middle of the battle so that I can see your victory
I want to be lost in the middle of the ocean where your power washes over me
I want to stand in the middle of the fire so that my heart can be purified
Keep me in the middle…

My Own Worst Enemy

My Own Worst Enemy

Am I so concerned with my own rights and happiness that I trod on all others? Am I living as though the “ends justify the means?” Who am I that I deserve more than the next? Do I feel like I deserve something better? Perhaps the world owes me something? Maybe God owes me something! Since I got short-changed earlier in life, now that I am in Christ, do I feel He owes me a better life now?

I Am Free!

I Am Free!

I am free. I have been freed from the chains of the law. When I try to uphold the law and live according to the law — for the purposes of accomplishing the law — it leads to death (Romans 6:23). The Apostle Paul spoke of this, and explained that it is through knowing the law that we are aware of our sin (Romans 7:7). […]
