Verse of the Day:
“There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”
~Prov 23:18

Quote of the Day:
“Worry is belief gone wrong, because you don’t believe that God will get it right”
~Ann Voskamp

Excerpt of the Day:
In the beginning, God created and here in the middle He hasn’t stopped. He keeps taking this same soul earth, turning it over and over again, making something from what feels like nothing.

The pessimists say life is hard and won’t get better. The optimists say life is good or will be soon.

But the believers say our hope is in Jesus whether life is hard or life is good, releasing the right to predict the future, holding on to God who comes to be with us now.

And our hope comes as we trust that the God who created in the beginning hasn’t stopped creating yet. Even if that hope is only as sure as a floating kite string.”

Video of the Day:

“If you were the ocean and I was the sun
If the day made me heavy and gravity won
If I was the red and you were the blue
I could just fade into you|

In your heart in your head in your
arms in your bed under your skin
Til there’s no way to know where
you end and where I begin”

~“Fade into You” by Nashville Cast (Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen)

from the dead”

Verse of the Day:
A Prayer for Healing for Isreal
“Lord, have you completely rejected Judah?
Do you really hate Jerusalem?
Why have you wounded us past all hope of healing?
We hoped for peace, but no peace came.
We hoped for a time of healing, but found only terror.

Lord, we confess our wickedness
and that of our ancestors, too.
We all have sinned against you.
For the sake of your reputation, Lord, do not abandon us.
Do not disgrace your own glorious throne.
Please remember us,
and do not break your covenant with us.

Can any of the worthless foreign gods send us rain?
Does it fall from the sky by itself?
No, you are the one, O Lord our God!
Only you can do such things.
So we will wait for you to help us.”
~Jer 14:19-22

Quote of the Day:
“Its not that we desire for a little, we settle for so much less.”
~ C.S. Lewis

Verse of the Day:
“Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away. Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and he will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah. ”
~Acts 3:19-20

Quote of the Day:
“Phyllis:     Angela, you’re going to move this for the party right?  It’s not on theme.
Angela:      It’s the nativity scene.
Phyllis:       Alright. You can keep your camel, the sheep, elephant and the North African king can stay. Everything else goes into the drawer.
[cut to talking head]
Angela:      I am not going to judge Phyllis for desecrating Christmas.  There is one person who will though, and Phyllis just stuffed him into a drawer.
~“Moroccan Christmas” the office

Lyrics of the Day:
“May the vision of You be the death of me”
~“Vision of You” by Shane & Shane

This has been one of my favorite lyrics in the past year, this is why…

What if only the VISION (=our very limited ability to see/conceive/understand) of God was enough to be the death of us.  Every day.  What would be accomplished in our lives, in our communities, in our world, if our OWN desires died solely on what we even barely understand God to be.  Here’s the thing, the truth is He is so, So, SO, much more than even what our vision of Him could ever be.

So my questions then becomes (and this thought makes my stomach get queasy, and my palms sweaty)….how can the “Vision of Him” not be “the death of me”

Quote of the Day:
“If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.  It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.”
~C.S. Lewis

Lyrics of the Day:
“Who am I to know your glory
Who am I to recognize your voice (calling out)
How could I be in your story
God who was and is and is to come (who has won)

I was dead in my sin
You came in, yeah

You made a way when there was no way
You covered heaviness with garments of praise
You wrote a song and you’re singing it o – ver me
I feel a dead heart beating now
This revelation makes me wanna shout
That Jesus has been sent
And everything is different

You turn ashes into beauty
You are for me not against me, now (You love me somehow)
You turn mourning into dancing
You turn weeping into a joyful noise (And we rejoice)

I was dead in my sin
You came in, yeah

You made a way when there was no way
You covered heaviness with garments of praise
You wrote a song and you’re singing it over me, yeah
I feel a dead heart beating now
This revelation makes me wanna shout (Yeah!)
That Jesus has been sent
And everything is different

What manner of love
That you would call us sons and daughters
We cry “Abba Father”
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Our God, He reigns

You made a way when there was no way
You covered heaviness with garments of praise
You wrote a song and you’re singing it over me, yeah
I feel a dead heart beating now
This revelation makes me wanna shout (Yeah!)
That Jesus has been sent
And everything is different”
