Grace fills in the lack and makes me whole. Grace is enough. Hallelujah, You have won the victory. Hallelujah, You have won it all for me. Death could not hold you down, You are the risen king, seated in majesty. And the You conquered the grave. You, whom all authority in heaven and earth is given to, is with me. This is why I will not fear.

A must listen. Click the link The following are notes taken during the session. This comes from 22 sermons on the book of Colossians in 2009. Everything I’m going to say is based in Colossians. I grew up in churches where I believed the gospel was only for people outside the church. I saw it as synonymous with evangelism. But evangelism is only a part of the gospel. The gospel is for...
God, you are hilarious! HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH
Jesus, YOU ARE THE COLOR OF MY WORLD!!
Epiphany this pass monday during my fast and I want to share with you. During fasting, worship the Lord. THIS will immediately draw you into the presence of God declaring your desperation for the immediate gratification/comfort of FOOD and being temporarily satisfied.. BUT CHOOSING to go deep w ith JESUS instead because he is our eternal Satisfaction!!!! BE DEEPLY BLESSED AND BE...
We are called to freedom. Jesus IS freedom.
We’ve been oceans apart but You part oceans to be with me ♥ amen beli.
Pour out your spirit
Stir these stagnant waters of my soul, Merge me with Your river which springs life, I don’t have all the right words to say That will provoke You to want me anymore than you already do. Won’t you come? Come like you promised. Pour out your spirit. Come into my darkness where I hide, Pull me into Your arms Your arms of peace. Reaching past my hiding, Oh, reach out to my running, ...
God, YOU ARE CREEEPPYYYYYY!!! in a good, caring, watching, listening way of course!! You’re just super creepy.

I can’t help but notice the socially rejected now. Learning more of your goodness, your justice, your mercy and my role in imitating you, has been on my heart more and more. I know that you are calling me to be like you. I know that you are asking me to lay down my pride and reach out to those that are abandoned, misunderstood, and rejected. Even when I ask that you open my eyes, you are...
Justice. We must reach to those around us. We must do what Jesus would do in the streets. To touch the untouchables. To love the unloveable. Isaiah 61
by David Wilkerson “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek)” (Matthew 6:31-32). Jesus tells us that worry—about the future of our family, about jobs, about how we are to survive—is a heathen’s way of life. Jesus is talking here about those who have no heavenly Father. They...
The heart is as insatiable as the grave till Jesus enters it, and then it is a cup full to overflowing.
You delight in me just as I am. Who am I that you’d be mindful of me? How can it be the King who delights in me? Nothing I do can separate me from your love.
wow. Who are we to taste such freedom found in the cross? Who are we to be disciplined and broken by the creator of the universe? Who are we that he molds and shapes us to be like him so we can free more people in bondage? Who are we to be used for His glory that goes forever and ever and ever? It’s amazing.

Looking Past Us To See Jesus
David Langerfeld When my precious wife Lynda passed away last September, something very special happened in those final moments of her life. I told her “I Love You!” and for the first time in three weeks, she opened her eyes wide and smiled - and then formed those same three words, “I Love You”, on her lips. As great as that memory is, something even greater happened....

The essence of repentance is that it destroys the desire for self-vindication.– Oswald Chambers
“And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.” Matthew 11:6 To be offended in any circumstance is due to pride. It is an accusation to God that the circumstance He’s allowed, shouldn’t have been allowed. Only through the understanding of the truth of who we are as sinners at the mercy of God, can bring us to a state of humility within any circumstance.. knowing and...
How are you so loving and good to your enemies, Lord? For I was once your enemy, but you have clothed me while naked, bound up my wounds, fed me til I was satisfied, comforted me in the midst of my distress, protected me from the enemy’s full grasp, and loved me in all my filth. This is your very nature Lord. This is the power of the cross. Now you ask me to go out of my way and love...

Gospel is ultimately an announcement, it’s an announcement/proclamation of what God has done in time, space and history, to save a people for Himself. The gospel is never about looking in upon myself and in what I must do or what I must think for God to approve of me. It’s an announcement of what has already happened outside of us. As humans, Luther said that we are always curved in...
What I give to Jesus is far less from what I’ve gotten from Him. Jesus is getting ripped off by me daily! Remember the hearts intention.
I’m wrecked again. Hallelujah!
Matthew 11:20-30 20Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21“Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.22But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the...

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:22-26 and Jeremiah 17:5-8 Lord, I...

Kingdom of Heaven vs Earthly Kingdoms
1 of the memory verses for this week. Isaiah 61:1-4 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me because the Lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who...

Vanity of Vanities
God is wise. I’m thankful that God gives us the grace to love. If the external things did not fade, if materialism did not leave us empty, if our skin did not age, how much more will we not know love? Love is about the internal things. In the same way, God loves the internal things. He does not look at what man looks at… the vanity of vanities, he sees the heart.. whether it...
