deserve

It’s a good thing we don’t get what we deserve. we often think we’re jipped, skimped, cheated. In fact, we are. Jesus came so we could be jipped, skimped and saved from a life apart from God in eternity. Thank God for that! Getting what we deserve in that sense would be a lifetime of misery, apart from God.

laughter

the mouth speaks what’s in the heart. May you have a heart of laughter. Me, too.

solitaire

One solitaire sacrifice. One solitaire love that made a difference. One solitaire decision to believe that Jesus died for your sins, to make you acceptable to God for eternity. Do you believe?

autumn

autumn is one of my favorite seasons. it shows God’s glory, beauty and attention to detail. the way leaves change, things die in order to be reborn again, and if he puts that much detail into nature, how much more detail does he care about you?

profound

He died on a cross for us. For our mistakes. So we could be accepted by God. Jesus was perfect. We weren’t. So he stood in our place, bearing our mistakes. Separating Himself from God so we wouldn’t have to live eternity without Him.

shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd, I don’t need anything else
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.

if the God of the universe is my shepherd, what could I possibly fear? He provides everything. Do you know Him?

castle

The person who builds his castle on the sand will lose all he has.
The person who builds his castle on the Rock of Jesus Christ (putting all your hope and effort into honoring Him and living for Him) will find full life,

suppose

suppose for a second that this life isn’t about us. It’s about God and Jesus and what they have done for us. Suppose God sent His son to die for your sins, to love you into heaven. Suppose your own efforts weren’t enough. Suppose it was a free gift from Jesus, just for you. Suppose all you had to do was say “Yes” to Jesus leading your life and accepting His forgiveness for your sins, welcoming you to heaven for eternity. Say “Yes!”

edge

the edge is good. it brings us to our knees, the best place where we can submit to God and what He wants to do in our hearts. The edge is a jumping off place, a place for change, a place of the end of me. The place where He can work the best, because i’m out of the way. Be thankful for the edge. He sends it to you out of love.

average

God uses average people to accomplish more than average things. It’s really an amazing thing to think about. He just wants willing participants, to give up our own egos

existence

He’s always been. I AM. He said. Before, during and after, He is I AM. His existence isn’t the question. The question is, Do you believe Him?

force

“it’s a force of nature” Never understood that -it’s a force of God, is what it is. He is the force behind everything good. Every single thing. HE is a force.

thunder

growing up, we used to say that thunder was the sound of God bowling in Heaven. Now I know better – it’s the sound of His majesty, might and power. He controls the universe, it’s flow, it’s sounds. His voice is thunder.

megaphone

Trials and struggles are the megaphone for bringing out what’s in our hearts. What comes our when you’re squeezed, under pressure?

bow

we bow down to so many things without knowing it. fashion. pressure. work. nature. people. self. there is only one thing that’s worthy of our bowing down to. Jesus Christ. He deserves it. Who do you bow down to?

plague

He used plague to get their attention. Only, they didn’t pay attention. Frogs, lice, bloody waters. What will it take? He just wants our attention. He made us. He loves us. That deserves attention.

expecting

i wasn’t expecting that the photo would get me, but it did. His face was so gentle. Yet firm. Eyes soft, seeing right into my heart. Yet in control. His face strong but relaxed. Welcoming. I can’t wait to meet Him. In Heaven. He loves us all so much. Do you know Him?

cast

he walked through the door and it was clear something was wrong. fast forward – in the E.R., broken elbow. Shattered. His bones and our hope that it wasn’t so bad. 12 weeks of therapy, exercises. and now, a year later, a pink scar remains.

intense

that burn is really intense. feeling the muscles strain, pushed through hard work. the sweat comes to the surface, blood burns within, mucsles ache, grow, stronger. day after day there is improvement, life.

smile

the way that dog smiles is amazing! She’s got that black lining on her lips that looks like a bit of lipstick, and then her lip line creases up on both sides, so she’s got a perma grin. She just brings everyone so much joy! Love that little gal…

limo

I wonder who all those special people are, i used to think.
Then I realized all those special people are just people.
We’re all special in His eyes.

backpack

the backpack was heavy. actually, it was light. I’m thinking of a different trip now. The light one is teh one we like to bring on hiking trips. We carry water, peanut butter sandwiches and toilet paper with us just to be safe. He usually wears it, he’s the man.
