Turn Around

Psalm 30:11 “You did it: You turned my deepest pains into joyful dancing; You stripped off my dark clothing and covered me with joyful light.” (Voice)

Instrument vs. Ornament

Rom.12:2 “Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Matt.18:12-13 (VOICE) “…Should the shepherd leave the flock on the hills unguarded to search for the lost sheep? God’s shepherd goes to look for that one lost sheep and when he finds her, he is happier about her return than he is about the 99 who stayed put.”

Fear Not!

Isa.41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

Spot Cleaning

Rom.5:5 “And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us…” [with emphasis]

It is so important for us to completely eradicate distractions because of what is at stake in our lives. The first type of distraction we must deal with is the “Harmless” Distraction. Read the rest of this entry


Luke 9:51 “When it came close to the time for his Ascension, he gathered up his courage and steeled himself for the journey to Jerusalem.” [MSG, with emphasis]

Economy Mode

Eccl. 8:6 (GN)”There is a right time and a right way to do everything but we know so little.” [with emphasis]
