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

Threads of Life
 

As one of my friends can attest to,
Both the light and  the dark threads are needed
For the all over beauty of quilting...
An art in which she has succeeded

In blessing her family and friends
With  these beautiful gifts from her hands...
Created with love and affection...
As one who receives understands.
 
As Christians our stories may differ
But there are dark and light threads tied to each.
Perfection is something we strive for
Yet it's just one more stitch out of reach.
 
But should we disguise our shortcomings?
Should we hide every weakness and flaw?
Should we paint on a smile when we're broken?
To make certain that nobody saw

That, as humans, we tend to know failure...
And are prone to our share of mistakes...
But are we risking our God's reputation
When we share all our wrongs and heartbreaks?
 
Some teach an admission to error
Is simply making our Savior look bad...
That we should button our lips and keep smiling...
But, to my way of thinking, that's sad.
 
Because it's living a lie and it's saying
That difficulty diminishes worth!
Because if we could live without problems
We'd have no need for our God here on earth.
 
The truth is Christ is our perfection...
And  He's our only claim to this state...
Because each thread of life forms a pattern
That dark and light moments create.
 
So don't be afraid to be honest
About things you may have to go through.
You'll only be showing God's goodness
Because  you know He will show up for you!!

Matthew 12:20
A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out,
 till he leads justice to victory. (NIV) 
 

Proverbs 3: 5, 6
 “trust in the Lord with your whole heart and lean not on your own
 understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will
make your path straight.”
  
2 Corinthians 12:9
'My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect
 in weakness. Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my
 infirmities, that the power of Christ will rest upon me.'" 

 Romans 5:3-4  
We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that
 suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character;
and character, hope.”
 
Psalms 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the
strength of my heart and my portion forever.
