Verse of the Day:
“My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.”
~ Psalm 62:7

Quote of the Day:
“The two most important days in your life: The day you were born, and the day you find out why .”
~Mark Twain

Excerpt of the Day:
“It’s an important question because to truly be able to love God and love others, to move with God to rescue, restore, and redeem humanity, we have got to know who we are.

Who do you think you are?
I’ve started to answer that question with one imperfect phrase: I am a beloved warrior.

I’m a pacifist so my definition of warrior is a bit more spiritual, perhaps. I see it as an advocate or a peace maker or a shalom prophet, a warrior living into the Kingdom of God, a worshipper, a disciple – courageous and unafraid.

Who do you think you are?
Warrior.

Who do you think you are?
Beloved.

We are worthy of a rescue, worth saving, worth loving. We are the one sheep in the ninety-nine worth leaving everything behind to rescue. We are redeemed. We are whole.

Loved. You are loved. You are loved. You can engage in your life from a place of love because you are.

We believe that we’re only worthy of love if… if we do this or if we do that. That’s what our culture or our broken world tells us, right?

But Jesus does not love us conditionally.”
~ “In which you are a Beloved Warrior” by Sarah Bessey
Seriously one of my favorite authors right now.

Verse of the Day:
“I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,”
~Ps 130:5-6

Quote of the Day:
“Worry is a sin in our lives when there is failure to accept these three truths in our life:
1.  God will take care of us
2.  What He has given us is enough
3.  When it’s not enough, He is still in control.”
~Noel Heikkinen of Riverview Church in “Not that Bad: Anxiety

This point Noel makes, has been running through my mind for the past month.  So convicting, so encouraging, sooo TRUE.

Lyrics of the Day:
“Sometimes I wish for falling
Wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air
To give me some relief
Because falling’s not the problem
When I’m falling I’m in peace
It’s only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief”
~“Falling” by Florence + The Machine

Verse of the Day:
“Therefore, let all the godly pray to you while there is still time,
that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.
For you are my hiding place;
you protect me from trouble.
You surround me with songs of victory.”
~Ps. 32:6-7

Quote of the Day:
“Some of the best lessons are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom of the future.”
~Dale Turner

Lyrics of the Day:
“Consider this a warning
Cause I’ll start another fight
And you’ll say its all alright
I’ll wait for the day when you find I’m too much for you, baby
So lay your hands over me
And feel what you only see
But don’t bother wasting your time if you’re trying to change me”
~“Consider This” by Anna Nalick

Verse of the Day:
“When doubts filled my mind,
your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”
~Ps. 94:19

Quote of the Day:
“Religion is not the solution. Religion without Jesus is just self-righteousness. Freedom from oppression of Europe, Israel became the oppressor. Delivered from persecution, Muslims became persecutors. Abused spouses and children often go on the abuse spouses and children. It is a cliche, but it’s still true: hurt people, unless they are healed, hurt people.”
~Mosab Hassan Yousef in “Son of Hamas

Lyrics of the Day:
“Some people they call me crazy
For falling in love with you
They can take me and lock me away baby
’cause there’s nothing those bars can do

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That’s how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That’s how strong my love is ”
~“That’s how strong my love is” by Alicia Keys

Verse of the Day:
“For whoever finds me finds life”
~Prov 8:35

Quote of the Day:
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
~ George Orwell

Lyrics of the Day:
“I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable
would it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful
Either way I’m sayin
If you ask me
I’m ready ”
~“Unthinkable (I’m Ready)” by Alicia Keys

Verse of the Day:
“He sends the snow like white wool;
he scatters frost upon the ground like ashes.
He hurls the hail like stones.
Who can stand against his freezing cold?
Then, at his command, it all melts.
He sends his winds, and the ice thaws.”
~Ps 147:16-18

Quote of the Day:
“A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.”
~ Gandhi

Lyrics of the Day:
“When the wind is blowing in your face
Sometimes in life you don’t see straight
Pray to Him and He will show
When your head is in a certain place
Nobody around to make you safe
Stand strong and you will grow

Oh
Wait till you see my smile
Oh
Wait till they see your smile”
~“Wait Till You See my Smile” by Alicia Keys
