Holding out the word of life

                            “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to rejoice greatly because I did not run [my race] in vain nor labor without result.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:16‬~ The passage goes…  “Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:14-16‬~ The Message Translation “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life” “holding up the…

How He bridges that gap

“So repent [change your inner self — your old way of thinking, regret past sins]  and return [to God — seek His purpose for your life],  so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];” ‭‭~Acts‬ ‭3:19‬~ So repent… The words of this verse are words of love. What a beautiful and impassioned plea. Is that the way you read it??? If not, perhaps you could read that again and hear the heart of love crying out to you? Repentance is call made by God to us, it is a plea and a directive of love. It is twofold, it involves sorrow AND change. Albert Barnes Commentary says:  1. There are two words in the New Testament translated “repentance,” one of which denotes a…

A searching heart…

You can only know God so much through someone else.. and then you have to know him for yourself. That’s the way he made it.  A personal knowledge, relationship with our creator makes no sense to the human mind. But the human heart is searching for the heart of God. And we will never find our wholeness and fullness and belonging until we find it in him.   God knows all things, he created man and he knows what is in the heart of man, but some are blind and will not see him or choose and follow Him. I do not understand it all but I know this… He made the way open by sending Jesus to pay the price for all of that evil, and by Jesus, he put in a ‘doorway’ that we could walk through and find him.  The Bible says that All our of righteousness…

Whose Battle is it?

I have been processing my internal thoughts and battles. I really NEED to stop trying to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. I claim to not carry this weight but in fact, I do carry it.  I am human. The only way for me to not carry it, is for me to be spending a lot more time in prayer than I currently am, otherwise, how could I ever hope to keep my eyes open and take interest with what is happening all over the world? I would also have to close my eyes and stop looking. I am an observer, a see-er, an acknowledger, but then ‘knowing’ is carrying to a great extent. I see people in pain, in turmoil, hurt, broken, carrying shame. I see death, illness, murder, justification of heinous acts. I see addictions and allergic reactions to life’s events, trauma, turmoil, and no-win…
