Verse of the Day:
“Lord, you are my strength and fortress,
my refuge in the day of trouble!
Nations from around the world
will come to you and say,
‘Our ancestors left us a foolish heritage,
for they worshiped worthless idols.
Can people make their own gods?
These are not real gods at all!’ ”
~Acts 4:31

Lyrics of the Day:
“I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees

Verse of the Day:
“Lord, you always give me justice
when I bring a case before you.
So let me bring you this complaint:
Why are the wicked so prosperous?
Why are evil people so happy?
You have planted them,
and they have taken root and prospered.
Your name is on their lips,
but you are far from their hearts.
But as for me, Lord, you know my heart.
You see me and test my thoughts.”
~Jer 12:1-3

Do I want to be feared or loved? Um… easy, both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.”

Lyrics of the Day:
“I don’t wanna’ spend my life jaded
Waiting to wake up one day and find
That I’ve let all these years go by
Wasted

Oh I don’t wanna’ keep on wishing, missing
The still of the morning, the color of the night
I ain’t spending no more time
Wasted”
~“Wasted” by Carrie Underwood

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.

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”
