Spreading Jesus without saying a word

We are called to let our lights shine (Matthew 5:16), and to love others so that they might know we are His (John13:35). Basically, by living our lives walking with Christ, we show the way for others to our savior. My prayer is that God will guide me through the Holy Spirit, to walk more closely with Him. To model my life after Jesus, so that my light can guide others. Father hear me now, and use me to your glory. Amen

The End of a Beautiful Day

God sure knows how to put a beautiful little exclamation point on a beautiful day…

Good song I heard, that really hit home

On the nights when the dark last a little bit longer

When the wind and the storm is a little bit stronger
When the fear in my heart dips a little bit deeper
When my faith to stand gets a little bit weaker

Where could I run to?

Where could I go?
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go, whoa
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
When the days up ahead look a little bit brighter
But the grip of the past holds a little bit tighter
I’m reminded Your grace never asks for perfection
Oh I’m restored ’cause I’m Yours and I stand forgiven
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go, whoa
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
And even in the middle of a struggle
And even when it’s hard to remember
You alone are my defense when
I’m standing on Your promises and I know
That even in the thick of the battle
And even through the valley of the shadows
You alone are my defense when
I’m standing on Your promises so
Where could I run to?
Where could I go?
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
You’re with me, yeah
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then

Confusion over the volume of God.

We don’t have Bibles that sit on the coffee table anymore. Or big family Bibles that Grandma keeps all of the important dates for family members. Most of you don’t even know what I’m talking about (maybe it was a Southern thing).

These days we have pocket Bibles in what ever version or translation you want. Most people don’t even own a paper copy, after all they have an app for that. Almost everyone, who chooses to do so, can have the word of God in their pocket, or purse.

I wonder if this may not be causing modern man some confusion as to the true volume of God. We think that because we have a Bible in our jeans pocket, somehow we can keep the maker of the universe in a tidy little container too. Something small and manageable, that we can pull out and open up when it’s convenient for us…like we do our Bibles.

Then we wonder why our relationship with God isn’t quite what we want, or hope it could be. Folks, we need to quit limiting God in our lives. We need to allow Him to be the God whom we can do anything through. We need to allow Him to be our strength…but first, we need to ask forgiveness. We need to say we are sorry for ever thinking we were powerful enough to limit Him, and recognize that He is our Lord.

A Thought on the Sanctity of Life

Throughout the scriptures, we are commanded to love others. Especially in the New Testament, during and after the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. So if we are to love others as we are loved by God, or more quantifiable by human standards, love others as we love ourselves…then how can we even think about taking the life of an unborn child.

Amazing Grace by John Newton

  1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
  2. That saved a wretch like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found;
    Was blind, but now I see.
  3. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed.
  4. Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.
  5. The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
    He will my Shield and Portion be,
    As long as life endures.
  6. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.
  7. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;
    But God, who called me here below,
    Will be forever mine.
  8. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.
