Lent, pt. 34

Ready for this? I am attempting some poetry!

 

They go out,

But never return.

All things affected,

Sometimes hurting,

Other times, healing.


Words are powerful. And once we speak them, they cannot be pulled back.

I heard many words today. Honestly, most of them were not positive.

It really made me think how strong our words can be.

I also listened to many good words today. They felt refreshing.

words

Isaiah 55:11 speaks about words going out of God’s mouth and accomplishing His plan.

I softens my heart to know that God never speaks anything that is harmful or wrong.

There are times when His words are not welcome but they are always needed.

Read God’s word today. You can’t go wrong.

And by the way, I think my poem really stinks.

Lent, pt. 33

I had a cool conversation today.

While getting my phone updated, I was chatting with the employee.

cellphones

He and I hit it off.

And then the conversation went deep.

We discussed topics ranging from death to God’s sovereignty to parenting.

But it was also a great time! I felt like God orchestrated the whole thing.

We both agreed that at the end of the day, God is God.

Things happen in life that may confuse us. We don’t always know why.

But God is God.

Another thing we agreed on is that God does not need to be questioned.

He is God and we are not. Trust that fact.

God is God.


So next time you get your phone updated, stand in line at a store, or wait for your coffee, God may have an encounter designed for you.

Maybe, just maybe, it could be just what you (or the other person) needs.

Lent, pt. 32

Who am I?

What is my identity?

Christ living in me is who I really am.

I am not defined by…

clothes.

jobs.

relationships.

dollars.

jokes.

appearances.

My life is found only in Jesus.

These thoughts of identity have been circling in my mind all day.

Jesus is my identity.

Who are you?

 

 

Lent, pt. 30

Today was normal. As in nothing out of the ordinary took place.

At least that I could see.


I am almost finished with a book entitled, Edge of Eternity by Randy Alcorn.

edge of eternity

A man wakes up in a different world. He is on a journey. Along this journey, he meets various other travelers. There are also moments in which he see into the spirit world.

This spirit world never sleeps. There are battles raging at all times.

However, these battles are fought over souls, not silver.

Over people’s’ souls, not precious gems.

Despite being a fiction novel, there are biblical truths hidden in the words.


Even though today was normal, there was an unseen fight taking place.

These invisible conflicts happen simultaneously as we live our lives.

Even our choices can affect the tide of battle.

Every time I open my bible, the heavenlies are affected.

Whenever I pray, the angelic forces are bolstered.

I can change eternity.

So can you.

We are 3/4 finished with Lent. Stay strong my friend.

I leave you with this thought:

Everything you do, not only affects you, but those, seen and unseen, around you.
