Broken Chains!

Forty days.  A long time with no food.  Satan asked “make bread from stones”.  Jesus said no I want but one thing.  Satan said “being Gods son you can do what you want and your father will save you”.  Jesus said I want but one thing.  In desperation, satan foreseeing the cross simply said, “give loyalty to me and all this earth can be yours”.  Our Lord at a time of weakness and physical exhaustion stood before the evil one and wanted but one thing.  Our freedom!  He chose, out of deep love, to give up food.  To give up comfort.  To give up life.  He took the chains of sin that weighed so heavy on us and broke them for me… For you…  What an amazing Savior!! 

Matthew 4:1-11

Come Lord Come!

Do you sometimes feel so weary.  Over the brokenness of this world.  That you  hope and pray the Lord will return?  There are days… as I try to show the love of my Savior and the patience of my King that I must hit my knees.  I pray on those days for his return.  For him to come and set it right.  For him to come and with those amazing arms… wrap me in the love that only he can offer.  For him to give me the peace that can only be found in his presence.  Then he talks… then he tugs… then he gives me the strength to show his love… his arms… his peace… to others until he returns.

Come Lord Come!!  We can’t wait to see you!

I Love You!

Walk The Talk!

To hear Chris Tomlin sing about our Savior brings tears. To stand in the middle of Red Rocks in Colorado, as we embraced his music, brought even more emotion.  As the concert ended, I looked at the trash left by all those that call themselves “Children of God”…  I was embarrassed.  As Christ followers we are to show his light, love and good works to everyone on this earth.  We are to be his  example for all to see.  As Christians we need to be above reproach.  We need to remember that not a day goes by that we are not representing him to the rest of the world.  Live each day knowing that God is aware and remembering that others may judge our Lord by watching us.  I don’t know about you…  but I want to make him proud.

Human Train!

Some come.  Some go.  Some stay.  Some wonder.  Some produce love.  Some cause sadness.  Some bless.  Some burden.  God directs and summons others into our lives.  God leads us down paths… with people… in an effort to teach, to direct, to lead, to produce wisdom in our lives.  We touch others hearts as they touch ours.  We influence others and they influence us.  No matter what direction or path it leads you down one thing is for sure.  It always leads directly to our Savior.  This human train is always moving.  Its up to us to jump on and enjoy the ride.  

Matthew 5:14 – 16

I Love You!
