ďAnd He has said to me,Ē ďMy grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.Ē 2 Cor. 12:9



Just when I think Iíve got it all together
That same old darkness
comes sneaking in my head
and I try to think positive
and I try to fight it
and sometimes this works
and sometimes it doesnít
and I get so tired
of the ups and downs,
Why canít I just be
NORMAL?
But then -
perhaps there is a way
that God can use this -
for after all,
it is sometimes through our weakness
that His strength shines through.
If I didnít have struggles
then I would have no need
of Him -
And there, perhaps
is the meaning
in the madness.

ďFor I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Ē Rom. 8:38-39


The only real peace
is the peace
I find in You.
In rain or shine,
In darkness, in light
You are my anchor,
my shelter,
my rock
And when everything
is falling down around me
and there is nothing to hold onto
but empty dreams,
You will be there to quiet my heart
and carry me through the storm.

ďBy this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.Ē John 13:35

You say that Iím supposed to
love my neighbor -
Well, sometimes I just donít feel like it.
Other times, I want to but
I donít know how.
And itís scary sometimes
to go outside
my nice
warm
space.
Maybe I could just stay here,
and yet -
Your voice keeps whispering
that if I know You
then I will reflect Your love.
And how can I do that
if I am hiding?
Well, if that is true
then it will have to come from You
because I canít do it
on my own.

ďFor I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.Ē Phil. 1:6


It is so easy to pull things down
instead of building them up.
It has something to do
with the same old lies
that I have believed for years.
And I am fighting against
them, Lord,
I really really am.
I want to believe
that You love and accept me
I want to let go of
all that holds me back
from being more like You.
Instant healing would be nice -
but I know thatís not how
it works.
Itís a process -
A long hard road
But at least now
I am going in the right direction
because I am letting You lead.



#10

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth.Ē Col. 3:2


As time goes by
I find myself
feeling more like a
stranger to this world,
separated from the things around me
and most at home
when Iím resting
in You.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
