My heart is heavy thinking about all the lies the world so easily believes about who God is and is not. Even now I know many people who believe they are God…or that there is no God. I know more who think that the universe is just a big cosmic energy and that we are all this energy and so on and so forth…no purpose, no meaning…

God gave me a purpose, He designed me with a plan in mind. He wove me together in my mothers womb intricately and with great detail leaving nothing undone that was not meant to be so. He determined that I would know and love Him, showed Himself faithful in answering prayer, delivering me from darkness and proving He was there.

While Satan works overtime to rob you of the truth, God came and died for you to show you of your worth. Scientist compel us to believe we evolved from an ape like species, no design but simply an accident…wondering how many had to die before evolution got it just right.

What a lie.
I don’t know what I can do…and I know it won’t be enough…when a whole world is pushing and shoving and struggling, the majority lost…I can’t imagine what I can do to undo the destruction…I can stand and shout the truth but who will listen? I live the proof, but still you turn away writing my living testimony off like it’s just a play. Well when the last act is finished and the curtain drops you better believe that everyone will kneel, everyone will drop…they won’t be able to deny the coming King in glory as He rides across the sky.

Every tongue will be declaring that Jesus Christ is Lord. My heart just aches so heavily for all who refuse Him now…please stop, please I am begging you…you are so precious…I love you, Jesus loves you, that’s why he gave his life for you…what’s so hard about believing and receiving that gift? Is it that you don’t like commitment, don’t want to be tied down? Maybe you want to be P.C. afraid to take a stand, don’t want to have to accept that someone is right and someone is wrong…instead lets all just get a long? I do you a disservice for letting you live that way…it’s nice to get along but I don’t want to see you perish due to my cowardly.

Let me tell you…Jesus is the only way…all the rest are naught. All roads do not lead to heaven and all god’s are NOT!!!! Oh please believe me!!!!

Lord God, remove their blinds…let them see you Glory divine!! Holy, holy, holy is the Lord almighty, His glory fills the whole earth…creation sings his praises and renders man without excuse. Stop with your stubbornness…break yee hard of hearts!!! Surrender and gain your freedom…or else you will be lost.

Lord, guide me as I write tonight. 

I have to serve You out of the overflow, out of the well if you will. I need to be full first though and so I read Your word…I search to know You deeply, I look to seek Your face. I think of all who have come before me, patriarchs of amazing faith. I can learn so much about You by studying their faith, all the ways that You supplied for them, guided them, and gave them a better place. I know this is Your heart for us, Your children, You want to give us good. I thank You for Your love for me and the way You show me daily that You have a plan for me. One that is for my good and not to bring me ruin, I trust You know whats best even when the road ahead is hard because I know You are just building my character, You are making me strong. I will persevere, I will finish the race and it will all be for You Lord and because of Your amazing grace. See, You are the one that empowers me, You guide me and give me peace, You are the glue that binds me and holds me to my place. You never will forsake me and You came to take my place, on that tree You hung there, when it should have been me. I can’t say thank you enough…I can’t say…Just know that I love You and I will spend the rest of my days glorifying You and singing Your praise. 

Lord, forgive me. Their are so many people who are lost. They don’t know You…or they don’t want to and I can’t change their hearts…I know that only You can do that…but I still try. I feel like I keep slamming myself against this stone wall willing it to break and instead the people leer at me, you know the expression on their face. They think that I am a lunatic, though all I seek to do is love, I am gentle in my approach…I don’t Bible thump. I recognize that You are a gentleman You want to be invited in…and yet the world makes You stay outside…they have not been trained to do what is right. In this world where wrong is right and night is day…everyone tries to hide away and all seem hurt and lost, You shine your light, it’s ever so bright and I just want to soak it in so that ones again I can meet the rock with my limbs and maybe it will budge. You said faith can move a mountain…well help me break this rock! 

 

In Jesus Name, Amen.

I really want to know you,

Is it merely pride that keeps you at bay?

What is really wrong here,

I wish that you would say.

I can not stand the silence…

why do you treat me this way?

Don’t you know how much I care?

Can’t you see all that’s out there?

So much that is to be delighted in and instead you just whine…

You are so ungrateful, not even asking why.

As if I have failed to do enough for you…

I gave my very life for you…and you still just laugh me off.

I keep coming softly closer,

but you keep telling me off.

I know you think that I am just a fable,

a product of some man.

Inside I know you know the truth, but it’s hard for you to understand.

See I made you with a hunger,

and a never-ending thirst.

I said that you will find me,

If you will simply look.

Don’t look with the eyes of man,

that have taught you to be afraid.

Instead you must search blindly, that’s how you develop faith.

Don’t worry you wont be “blind” for long I just want you to trust me.

My vast character,

my grand plan…

to paint the sky with another sunrise or sunset,

to give you another heart beat and yes another breath.

I can not let you go yet…

no, not just yet…

not until you know the reason…

I died to pay your debt.

It’s because I love you with a never-ending love

far beyond what you’ve ever known.

I want to give you the chance to grow in that love and learn to love me back.

We could have something great, something that will truly last,

because I will never leave you and you will never want to look back at what life used to be like without me.

You see I have been waiting for you all of your entire life.

Waiting for you to notice me and give me a chance.

I will prove myself to you…I don’t get scared of a fight,

you can argue with me and test me, I won’t run and hide.

I won’t trow a fit because you’ve made me wait…instead I will just quietly say…

Come.

Follow me.

Let me be your guide,

I know all the best routes, and while you have been carrying that heavy burden all your life,

come and trade it for mine…

for my yolk is easy, my burden is light.

This is not a trick,

I am not a salesman, I won’t cost you more than you can pay.

Plus I’ll provide for you, all that you need to make it through each day.

I will never let you down.

You can really trust me, and while you are growing in your relationship with me

I will help you to become more than you ever dreamed plus a man of integrity or a women of purity.

In me you will find such joy, and peace past your understanding,

I really just want to set you free of all things that make you look sadly.

Things you are not so proud of…things you’ed rather not share

Things you don’t dare…to even say.

I already know them…and I am ready to take them away.

Salvation is yours, it’s my gift to you.

Freedom, and love…honesty and integrity, joy, peace, hope and me…all of me, for you see I am Immanuel; God with you.

If you just read this and something inside you said “yes” and now for the first time you want to give your life to God, let’s pray together.

Lord Jesus, I know how scary it is to try new things, and I know that this person may be feeling unsure and afraid. I ask that you would give them peace right now and help them to understand what it is you have done for them I pray that they will give their hearts to you and live the rest of their lives joyfully in your service.  Please help them to find the courage now to ask you to forgive them of their sins, and to truly believe that you are God, that you died on the cross for them and three days later raised from the dead. I pray that they will ask you to be lord of their life and to kindle your light inside them as you make your home with them, and give them the gift of the holy spirit. Help them to take the next step and find a good church to grow in and people who genuinely love You who can then love them. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

My precious daughter

Today, is a very good day! Today my darling little girl, with the faith of a child prayed and asked Jesus into her heart! I have known no greater joy as a mother…then the joy that welled up in me this morning as my little girl who is little more than two years old took that first step. I have been praying for this day since before she was born, that God would reveal himself to her in such a way that her little heart would understand and that as soon as she was able that she would accept Him as her savior! My prayers have been answered today. I know she understands only with a child’s understanding and yet I know that Jesus has kindled His light in her on this day all the same! Rejoice with me!!

The light is so subtle as it creeps steadily through my curtains like a military force slowly advancing on it’s target. As the light comes, it dispels the darkness and I am left feeling clean and alive once more. There was a part of me that truly loved the night a long time ago…I used to prefer to live in it and instead sleep in the day, but that was before I met Him.

Before I met Him so many things were different about me. I thought that night was better than day…more mysterious, more opportunity to do things that must be hidden. It was all dark and sinister…and I loved it. I used to think that if vampires were real I could find them only in the night and with the love of blood and sex everything would be alright…I could live forever! Yes this was before the twilight craze…before vampires lived in the day. In that time I practiced witchcraft too…longing to bring true love my way…tired I guess, even then, of all the subtle games that I played trying to get what I thought I wanted. Desperately seeking for someone to find me, love me, lead me, and see me…but how could they? It was to dark to see me, I was to ugly to love, all twisted up and brokenly confused…until You.

It was night when I met You too…I ponder this now thinking You must have known that You would have to woo me back out of the night and into the light. You met me on my turf. You sought me out, and when I laid bare all that I was in those terrifyingly quite moments you took me in your arms and washed me clean. To You I was not ugly, to You I was not used, to You I was a treasure and You showed me all that I had been loosing by believing the lie that living in the night was all that I deserved. You showed me that light is stronger than darkness, and that a price had been laid on my head, like a bounty hunter You found me and said that You had already paid the lynch man off, You had surrendered the cost and if I would only accept this truth, this selfless gift then I could know what true love meant. Then, with a mind that was screaming and a heart that was beating so violently I thought it might rip free from it’s rib cage enclosure, carefully creeping on trembling toe’s painstakingly slow…you led me from darkness into glorious day, and I will never be the same!

Now my love affair is with the day, and I ache and long for the light, for the truth to shine and the lies and things that are hidden to be exposed and dispelled. Light conquers darkness, and You reign in my heart, you set me apart, you call me your own and now I am home…home in the light. I say goodbye to the night.
