Despite the fact that we are flawed
He knew there was a chance
That what He had created
Would awaken from their trance
To realise their present life
Contained an empty space
That nothing in the world could fill
Till Jesus took first place.
So, if you are wondering
Why nothing that you do
Can bring an all consuming peace
Then maybe it is true
Until you seek The Son of God
And ask Him to reside
Your life will never reach the heights
That God meant to provide.
In today’s society, I see all kinds of disrespect going on. Some get by with it, and others don’t. I want to get to the place in my Christian walk where there is more humility of spirit. I am aware of His Presence almost all day when I read the Word, and start my day right. […]
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. –Galatians 5:5
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. –Galatians 5:25
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. –Galatians 6:7
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. –Galatians 6:8
My writing break is busy with little projects, and new book ideas are happily simmering. The rain lingered through most of May, so I spent a couple weeks playing at other kinds of creativity. I thought I’d try to illustrate one of my children’s stories. Here are the first six pages. A couple still need some work, but it’s a start. The verse is hard to see at this mini size, so I added it below.
In a dim and distant galaxy
Due east of dusty Mars
Spins a tiny greenish planet
Nestled in a spray of stars.
Its rivers teem with fishes
Its fields grow golden wheat
And fireflies light its lanterns
Along every nighttime street.
The sun smiles at its dawning
Rain only drips at night.
Even prickly woodland beasties
Hardly ever raise a fright.
“Life is grand in Alderdoof,”
The elders often say.
“Could a soul…

Life has many challenges; some of which we can’t control. Then there’s the choices we make among the options that are available to us. At face value, some of these options may look DIFFICULT.
They may involve “things” we DON’T WANT TO DO or even ENJOY, but are necessary to develop and maintain the mental and physical health required to LIVE a CHOSEN quality of life.
So many readers comment that PAIN and SUFFERING are necessary before people are willing to change unhealthy lifestyles. I’m not entirely convinced of this. I don’t see people (who value life) placing loaded guns to their head and pulling the trigger just because they haven’t experienced the PAIN or SUFFERING of a bullet. I believe those people living unhealthy lifestyles simply don’t equate these unhealthy habits with “Russian Roulette.” In reality, the PRIMARY difference between the two is the time…

Things lie deep within ourselves
Fragments buried from the past
You have tried to lay them down
Wish you could forget,at last
Long to go back to those days
So that you could put things right
Sadly that’s impossible
You are landed with this blight.
Maybe God can help you out
But yourself you must forgive
You were different back then
Jesus died to make you live
He has wiped the blackboard clean
So that you can do the same
Draw a line and walk away
Leave the weight of guilt and blame.
Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sinneth shall die. –Ezekiel 18:4
But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall die not. –Ezekiel 18:21
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. –Ezekiel 18:32
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. –1 Corinthians 6:12
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your…
