One Thing’s For Sure


I may or may not be,
The kind of person that I want to be..
But one thing’s for sure,
I’ll find myself secure
In the arms of the Father who loves me.

In times when it all doesn’t go as planned,
As the time pours out my hand, like sand
All drifting away, but one thing’s for sure,
I’ll find myself secure
With the love of the Father who’s holding my hand.

The Desert Story


Praise

“And I will bring praise, I will bring praise..”

The passion from their singing fills up the entire place. The people, devoted and on fire, giving their
all to sing this one song. Some, singing and feeling the words, with their eyes closed.

“No weapon formed against me shall remain.”

He can picture the scene – the gates of heaven open, with the crowd roaring and
rejoicing with every bit of passion they had, and declaring..

“God is my victory and He is here.”

It was a breathtaking sight. He could see that, and he smiles at the thought. He was a
part of that crowd, in a concert he went to that night. He could sing, yeah, and he did..

But at the back of his mind, he just knows he couldn’t.

Well, after this night, it would probably be the same, like most Sundays have been.

Back to a 9 to 5 work and another job on the side that helps him and his ailing father

survive.

Back to those moments of loneliness when he felt like God was nowhere in sight.

As wars rage on, beliefs clash, in a world full of suffering..

Where was God? Maybe he was in the far-off distance.. maybe he perhaps does not exist.

Running, Flowers, and the Unwinding Cable Car


Unwinding Cable Car

There’s something redeemingly powerful about the song “Unwinding Cable Car” by the band Anberlin. While I was listening to it, a scene was playing in my mind that I just thought of. I saw a man running along black and white painted lines in a sea of pink, green, violet and yellow flowers. He keeps on running, but then, falling down – feeling so tired. He was running for so long and he feels lonely, he has been running all by himself.

The Arms of Love


Things are getting a bit complicated. I’m not sure but, for some time, things have been the same. Some might say there isn’t any visible “sign” of growth… A tangible sense of improvement, a “better” person, exactly. But it isn’t really about that, right?

“This is not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for you.”

Sometimes we get so caught up on what we’re missing…what we don’t have… what we feel isn’t right, that we forget about the arms of love wrapping around us and holding us tight, keeping us together.

The arms of love.
The arms of Jesus Christ.

It’s been a year since I’ve wrote this short story called “The Cycle of Being Better” and since then it has still been the same. The weaknesses and the failures of man, cause us to think so low of them when despite of those failures and weaknesses that man is still loved. Still a treasure in the arms of Christ.

It’ll All Be Clear


“Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost you could always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Coz I’m gonna make this place your home”

These are lines from Phillip Phillips‘ song “Home”. And yes, he won American Idol.

But, he’s not really the main topic here, but it’s the amazing lines presented within his coronation song. I guess, it’s really such a great inspiration for me. Especially the lines I mentioned above.

Blessed are the children for theirs is the kingdom of God.


“Blessed are the children for theirs is the kingdom of God”
by Danny Randall

(I asked for his permission if i could post this, and he gladly agreed. His words have truly inspired me and I hope it does inspire you too.)

    It’s amazing to me how much of my life I was motivated by what I was against and I actually thought I was living in freedom! It’s so easy to rally around a cause, especially when everyone around you agrees with you and pats you on the back for standing up for the truth. For me what I was against was man-made religion and all the evil that comes from it. I would quote Blaise Pascal’s famous quote, “Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction,” often to justify my anger and self-righteousness towards those I thought were the enemy.
