Lyrics of the Day:

“The storms of this life shatter our plans. They tear through our world and destroy our hopes and dreams. They ruin sunny days, flatten the structures we depend on, and shock our world-views. … My plans will fail, the storms of this life will come, and chaos will disrupt even my best intentions, but my love will not be destroyed.”
~“Hello Hurricane” by Switchfoot

Verse of the Day:
“But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.”
~Jude 1:21-22

Quote of the Day:
“We tried to make her feel better by helping her see the advantage of failure, putting the defeat in context, teaching her to draw a lesson from it, and motivating her to work harder and get better so it doesn’t happen again.

But she didn’t need any of that. She already knew it. And if she didn’t, she’d figure it out on her own. The thing she needed, the thing she couldn’t give herself, the thing that Mimi reached out and gave her?

Empathy.”
~”The Right Way to Respond to Failure” by Peter Bregman

Lyrics of the Day:
“And how can I stand here with You
and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me how could it be
any better than this?

Cause You’re all I want, You’re all I need
You’re everything,everything”
~“Everything” by Switchfoot

love, Love, LOVE this song.  oh how the lyrics resonate.

~Acts 2:24

Quote of the Day:
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

Lyrics of the Day:
“You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
~“House that Built Me” by Miranda Lambert

love, Love, LOVE this song.  oh how the lyrics resonate.

Verse of the Day:
“…so that Christ will take up permanent residence in the place of your most inner emotions through faith.  I pray that you, being firmly planted,  settled,  and established IN LOVE may have the power together with all of the community around you understand the vast expanse that is the love of Christ which to know this love that goes beyond any of the experiential knowledge you may have – that you may be filled to the level that the complete fullness in God can only create.”
~Eph 3:17-19

Quote of the Day:

Lyrics of the Day:
“And it is always yours
But I am always yours

Hallelujah, I’m caving in
Hallelujah, I’m in love again
Hallelujah, I’m a wretched man
Hallelujah, every breath is a second chance

And it is always yours
And I am always yours”
~“Always” by Switchfoot

Lyrics of the Day:

It could never make me happy

Spend their time collapsing

And let that be enough”

Verse of the Day:
“He who answers before listening—
that is his folly and his shame. ”
~Prov 18:13

Quote of the Day:
“We’ll lie down and stare up at the vast blue sky above us and watch the clouds go by and listen to the breeze as it moves the leaves over-head. I’ll be there on my back and say a short prayer: ‘God, I can’t believe I get to live this life’.”
~Rob Bell

Lyrics of the Day:
“Does it have to start with a broken heart
Broken dreams and bleeding parts
We were young and world was clear
But young ambition disappears
I swore it would never come to this
The average, the obvious

I’m still discontented down here
I’m still discontented

If we’ve only got one try
If we’ve only got one life
If time was never on our side
Then before I die
I want to burn out bright”
~ “Burn Out Bright” by Switchfoot
