Verse of the Day:
“For God so (so= because of the manner or intensity of feelings) loved (love= to provide for and protect YOU) the world, that he sent his son.”
~John 3:16 – It’s because of God’s intense love for us that he provided a way to protect me, even knowing the depths of my heart.  He still chose to send his son to earth.  That is the unbelievable beauty of Christmas

Quote of the Day:
“This is a crazy story about an all-powerful God who created everything and could do anything he wanted to do and he CHOSE to tenderly step into His creation to ruthlessly deal with sin, out of love”
~Noel Heikkinen in “Behold* Jesus

Verse of the Day:
“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. (NIV) ”
~John 1:9

Quote of the Day:
“The world runs by ungrace. Everything depends on what I do.

~Tullian Tchividjian

Verse of the Day:
“And once that person is with me, I hold on and don’t let go.”
~John 6:37

Excerpt of the Day:
“I’ve had my bouts with perfectionism. For years I thought I could do it right, and those who missed their mark, well, they should be pitied. But I’m weary of that kind of pressure and judgment. The longer I live, the less I think God is asking that of me. Rather, he asks me to invite him into the stumbles and bobbles, to lean on him precisely because I can’t do it right. And in the midst of it, what he does ask of me is to love. And love is always messy.”
~ “Why Perfectionism is Dead to Me” by Al Andrews

Lyrics of the Day:
“The room is dark, my head is a holding cell
I can’t escape, I can’t escape any reasons now
I step outside ’cause I cannot sleep
And I believe, but can you help me with my own belief?
Sing out your love”
~ “Sing Out Your Love” by Churchill

Quote of the Day:
“The inclusion of sinners in the community of salvation, achieved in table-fellowship, is the most dramatic expression of the message of the redeeming love of the merciful God”
~Brennan Manning (A Glimpse of Jesus p. 55)

Lyrics of the Day:
“Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.”
~“O Holy Night” One of my favorite lyric lines of all time.

Now we usually skip the middle verse and it blows me away every time. But the whole song is soo dang good. Read the words, let them sink in.

Verse of the Day:

Excerpt of the Day:
“I thought about the pew in front of me, worn and glassy from those who had rubbed past the gloss, through the stain, and worn the wood down to satin in their desperate fingers.
The slow and inefficient work of God.
I thought about my heart. It’s crag-like and rough. The sharp edges could pierce flesh. I want God to change my heart. Now.

Or I could simply sit and let the waters of grace slowly, moment by moment, smooth my heart out.”
~“The slow and inefficient work of God” by Ann Jackson
