The Greater Sickness

I know that God can heal the sick, but sometimes, I wonder if he doesn’t simply to teach those around them what it is to care for and truly love others. For it seems to me, that if I am too busy or uncompassionate to the pains and needs of others, I am the one with the greater sickness.

Gaining Gratitude

It is only through experiencing the absence of those who we love that we can come to truly appreciate the presence of the One who loves us. It is only through experiencing the inadequacy of the created, that we can come to truly appreciate the adequacy of the Creator.

Pursuing Happiness?

God never called us to pursue happiness. He called us to pursue Him.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

One Simple Life

One Rose
One Simple Rose
Dying by the moment
Petals Scattered
Fallen and Fragrant
And every place they rest
Is Beautiful
Deeply Romantic

They will get swept away
But in the moment
They are glorious
Enticing
Captivating
Halting Time

Like a mist
Dancing across still water
Shining in the morning light
Blown in a slow, steady breeze
Here and gone in a moment
Yet it’s presence enriches the dawn

And vapor
One Simple vapor
Opens the airways
And allows one to breathe
To live
Because one vapor
Was in the right place
At the right time

One life
Fleeting by the moment
Moments Scattered
Fallen and Fragrant
And every place they rest
Is Beautiful
Deeply Romantic

They will get swept away
But in the moment
They are glorious
Enticing
Captivating
Halting Time

Like a mist
Dancing across still water
Shining in the morning light
Blown in a slow, steady breeze
Here and gone in a moment
One life enriches the dawn

And one life
One Simple life
Can open the airways
And allow another to breathe
To live
Because one life
Was in the right place
At the right time

The finite becomes infinite
The mortal, immortal
As one life leaves its impression
In its finite moment of time.

Commit to do the Possible

God is not calling you to do the impossible. He is calling you to do the possible. Commit to do the possible and trust God to do the impossible.

Looking for God

God is often clearly seen where we least expect to see Him.

Facing a Giant?

This is for you:

The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. – Zephaniah 3:17 NLT

More than You Can Handle

God will give you more than you can handle, but never more than you can handle with Him.

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13

We all Live By Faith

Every second of our lives is lived by faith. When we step foot out of our beds, we have faith the ground will hold us up. When we flip a light switch, we have faith it will turn on. When we log on to the Internet, we have faith it will be up and running. If we have so much faith in the things we do not fully understand, things we cannot see or feel. Why is faith in God so hard?
