A Day To Celebrate Jesus

Merry Christmas, friends! 😊 This is a day to celebrate Jesus — His first coming to this earth, as a baby who would grow up for this very reason: not only to speak the words of God, not only to do the works of God, but to die as the sinless sacrifice on our behalf, to pay the fine that we owed God. We owed a massive debt to God because of all of our sins — everything we do wrong against God and against other people: lying, stealing, committing adultery, harboring anger in our

“Why doesn’t God stop the evil?”

Just heard a good thought: A lot of people complain, “Why doesn’t God do anything about the evil in the world?” And yet, these same people will read of the times in the Bible when God /did/ put a stop to the evil in the world (like when he brought plagues upon Egypt or destroyed the many wicked nations in the land of Canaan), and they’ll turn around and say that God is a violent, angry, evil god. People, you can’t have it both ways. God is God. He does whatever pleases Him. H

Desperate for Restoration

Desperate times call for desperate measures, And hardly a time have I known more desperate than this. Desperately I want to see your life restored – A friend so loved, now so lost; A breaking, raging soul, Sold out to hate what once it loved. And the worst of it is that I’m the cause. Desperately I was trying to please you; Desperately I longed to do only what was right. But in the thick of it my decisions were clouded by night. And even with all the strength I could

Enough!

Oh why should I sigh at another’s jubilance? Why should I weep as they break into song? Dancing on their merry way, Holding hands on this blessed day, While my heart is torn in shreds again. Oh God, set me free. May this terrible tearing rip me from my shackles! May I live to see You and stop focusing on fables! I do not deny I’ve been blind. I do not deny I’ve been tied down in so many ways When I thought this season my ties would break… Oh, miserable, wretched man t

Hope Shimmers Like The Sea

My soul cries out in joy to my God, The deliverer of my soul And the provider of all my soul’s longings! ‘Tis a day of blessed peace! ‘Tis a day of achieving goals That souls like mine don’t often dream of achieving. I’ve set a course, and God puts me to task. I climb aboard, we raise the mast, And off we sail the wide open seas! Who knows what God has in store for me? It’s a joy to think about! And it’s a joy to live! For too long I’ve been tied down by ropes That dashes all

I Love My God

I love my God so much; He is so precious to me. No matter what the circumstances that threaten me, He is ever my strength, my warm embrace. He loves me with a mother-like love – unconditional, ever-present. Even if I stray, He is always willing to take me back. He is the source of my joy, the only reason that I live. Because of Him, I hope and praise Him exuberantly. I wave my arms and dance with vigor; My face is radiant because of all my God’s blessings and mercy. He g

Dearest God Above

Dearest God above, We come to You today giving You thanks, For You are not just a God seated high above us, But You are near to each of our hearts Your providential hands conduct this world With Your beautiful orchestral score, And we adore You We adore Your vast majesty that manifests itself From the plants to the cosmos We adore Your great intelligence that instigated a plan To save a world that in sinful folly made its boast We adore the way You adore us, Wretched

Blazing Light of God – Official Music Video Now Released!

The official music video for Blazing Light of God has been released! I just gotta tell you the story about how it came to be! Alright, so we went to my grandparents’ house in West Virginia. Very peaceful, calm and quiet – the kind of place where your neighbors just walk over to your house, sit at your bonfire, and talk for a while, maybe trading vegetables from each other’s gardens. You’d think it would be a pretty uneventful trip… But with my grandparents’ permission, me and
