ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Know That You Are Loved

                                                                                                 
"I am  so mentally exhausted,"
She tearfully confided,
I do the very best I can
But the battle seems one-sided.
 
The devil seems to laugh at me
Each time I break down and cry.
I try to rise above my weakness
But the mountain seems too high."
 
Are you another weary Christian
Struggling from day to day?
 Trying to keep it all together?
To be good in every way?
 
 Seems when we try the hardest
We frequently fall on our faces.
We've been told to rest in Jesus
But we've forgotten just what Grace is.
 
O, why settle for this set back?
Why must we let our lives be shoved
Into this fear infested corner
When we're unconditionally loved?
 
This epidemic state of weariness
Throws us  all beneath the bus .
If we've been pressured to be perfect
Then His perfection's not in us.
 
We cannot earn God's favor...
Makes no difference what we try.
He's already proved He loves us
By hanging on The Cross to die.
 
He doesn't simply tolerate us...
He enjoys us  to the max!
And if we really trust our Father
Then we must learn to relax.
 
Our hearts must not be troubled...
We can't fear His rejection.
Be still and know that He is God,
And God is love in each direction.
 
There is no way to be good enough
 So don't try so hard to be...
 For God only sees the goodness
Christ imparts to you and me.

~~Dedicated to Sandy~~


 There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear,
 because fear hath punishment; and he that feareth
 is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18
 
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me;
and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
John 6:37

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary

 and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16b
