A Love Letter From Jesus To You

Hi all, I thought you might like to see a love letter from Jesus to you.

 

A Love Letter From Jesus To You

My little child, I love you. (John 15:9)



I have called you by your name, you are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)



Before I formed you, I knew you. And before you were born, I consecrated you. (Jeremiah 1:5).



You did not choose me, I chose you. (John15:16).



Beloved, I wish above all things that you prosper and be in…

The king and a foot race.

I came across this, thought some might see what I saw:

...This is the story: The king of a certain country was growing old, and he had no son to succeed him. He announced to his people that he would choose an heir to the throne from among the young men of the country by a competitive test which would give all an equal chance. On the day appointed a great number of young men presented themselves. A certain test was made, and some failed while others passed. Then other tests came, and each… Continue

Atheism

“the belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs. Makes perfect sense.”

JESUS-WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE

Throughout our lives in this world we meet so many . Some friends are around for a long time , some for only a short time.

There are fair weather friends and then there are friends who are foul weather friends.

There are friends that come into our lives just as others go their own separate ways that we just plain lose touch with.

I believe that every single person and friend that comes into our lives touches us in some way and even the smallest touch leaves an imprint or an… Continue

Oh God, I have tasted Thy goodness...

"Oh God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscience of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, 'Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.' Then give me grace…

When one step forward, two steps back..

When one step forward, two steps back is progress.

God wants us to be trusting Him.

We all have times when it appears we are getting no where fast.

The power that lives and breathes in Hope, is what we need to continue.

There was a time that Jesus taught that, His body and Blood they needed to consume.

Many turned away, Jesus turned and asked His disciples, “will you leave also?”

They answered, “where would we go Master?”

When we face what seems impossible to… Continue

What does the Bible say about tattoos / body piercings?



The Old Testament law commanded the Israelites, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:28). So, even though believers today are not under the Old Testament law (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:15), the fact that there was a command against tattoos should raise some questions. The New Testament does not say anything about whether or not a believer should get a tattoo.



In relation to tattoos and body… Continue

Something to share

This past couple of weeks God has been stirring up something in me to truly change the way I follow and serve Him. I have been reading this book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan. Chapter 5 truly kicked me in the teeth about the way I selfishly have been using my life to serve myself.



Last night I sort of did this mental purging in my life where one by one I mentally placed everything at the foot of the cross in my life. All material possessions and mental ideas of what I am…

May God send His love like sunshine in His warm and gentle way, To fill each corner of your heart each moment of the day.

greater Love

Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, Bear with each other and forgive whatever. grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all togather in perfect unitiy.

Christian Friendship Poem

Christian Friendship Poem (author unknown).



I love you not only for what you are,

But for what I am when I am with you;

I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,

But for what you are making of me;



I love you not for closing your ears to the discords in me,

But for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening;

You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign.

You have…

Poem: A Sinner Like Me

Pushing this flesh into alignment,

guided by The Word most holy and pure,

I'm striving to learn principles

for a sanctified life to endure.



My Lord loves me without hesitation

and allowed a part of Himself to die.

He's calling me homeward without reservation;

by His Spirit, to His side, I'll eventually fly.



Knowing I'm a child of His,

during trying times I find true encouragement.

I'm able to lean on His strength

while in search of…

Poem: His Blessings

His blessings upon my life flow -

No matter where I am

or wherever I happen to go.



Overcoming the curse of Mankind,

is a consuming, infinite Love

from the One declared divine.



As I continue inside His Will,

sheltered by Sacrificial grace,

His many promises are fulfilled.



Truly blessed, to be a blessing

is simple for anyone to see -

As I'm fully submerged... in God's covering.

Joyful living requires giving.

Joyful living requires giving.

Most people are selfish and self-centered, focusing only on what benefits them. Such thinking claims that the more you have, the more you accumulate, and the more attention you receive, the happier you'll be.…

Simply by being in your presence, non-Christians ought to be able to tell that you have spent time in God's presence.

Simply by being in your presence, non-Christians ought to be able to tell that you have spent time in God's presence.

In Acts 4, Peter and John were brought to the rulers and elders of the people (v. 8) to be questioned by them. But when Peter and John came to those people, who were Jews, they were astonished [by Peter and John]and they took note that these men had been with…

Being Humble Before God

Being Humble Before God

Are you humbling yourself before God your Creator and drawing nearer to Him each day?  We need to follow the example of the great Bible characters and humble ourselves before our Creator and Redeemer.



 

True holiness and humility are inseparable.  The nearer the…

domino"s

I have shared things from my past, throwing rocks and fits.  Turning my back and things like that.

But, the sum total for all those things comes down to this.  If I were to walk away, where would I go ?

Do I think, His Love for me is false ?  Or in some way, I could change His Love ?  I wonder if we believe

that if we fight, kick and scream, He will help us quicker ?  If somehow He can be stronger or make a special

exception just "us."  We give our hearts to Jesus, we… Continue

Time to say Good Bye. Romans 16

Not so quick!  It would be easy to glance at the last chapter of Romans and think, ‘oh, Paul is just greeting a number of folks…we can pass on that.’  There are some great things to note; take a look:

“Before I commend to you our…
