Perplexed, but not driven to despair

MyLord,MyStrength,MySong

Grace1

Righteous are you, O Lord, when I complain to you; yet I would plead my case before you. Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all who are treacherous thrive? You plant them, and they take root; they grow and produce fruit; you are near in their mouth and far from their heart.
Jeremiah 12:1‭-‬2 ESV

Jeremiah is asking the Lord some bold questions here in verses 1-4. Jeremiah has just learned that the men of Anathoth, Jeremiah’s own hometown (Jer. 1:1) schemed to have him killed. They actually ordered him not to prophesy or he would die by their hands. Just wanted you to understand Jeremiah’s state of mind and how brokenhearted he must have been.

I don’t know about you, but anytime any form of persecution comes whether it’s rejection or the most severe cases giving our life to follow Christ. I believe it still…

The Road

MyLord,MyStrength,MySong

The Road
The road leading to Christ can be exciting, joyful, mournful, dim, bursting full of light. There will be times of fellowship, and there will be times where no one dares to go with you. There will be loneliness in the physical realm. Rest assured though that you have a friend that sticks closer to you than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24) That is Jesus; He will never leave nor forsake you. In the days of loneliness or maybe you just “feel” like you have a million people around but you “feel” like you have never been more lonely. Let me tell you that in those moments the enemy of God is twisting the reality of your situation and turning your feelings. I will agree that people are disloyal, untrustworthy, uncaring, they betray. They do this because they are flesh, and we know we do not war against flesh and…

Burning Bright or Dark as Night

MyLord,MyStrength,MySong

bushel

Are we sitting on our bushel basket’s hiding our light?

Mark. 4:21

And he said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand?

Are we Christian’s who are wondering where is the power of God in my life?

The light that we are choosing to place under our bushel baskets is a lamp. That light is meant to be sitting on a lampstand; Burning and seen.

Matthew 5:14-16

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in…

Down Deep In My Soul

MyLord,MyStrength,MySong

We all feel discouraged or forgotten about at times. Sometimes we can get so discouraged in our walks with Christ that we forget His promises to us. That He will be with us until the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). That He will never leave nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5/Deut. 31:6) He never promised that it wouldn’t be hard or that it wouldn’t be painful but, He did promise to use ALL things for good. Eventually, with time He will use even the bad things in our lives for our good (Romans 8:28), He promises that His love for us is everlasting. (Jer. 31:3) Yes, in this verse He is directly talking to Israel, but since we are now the spiritual descendants of Abraham we have all of God’s promises, it is truth and grace, and it is beautiful. We are grafted into Jesus. (Romans 11:17). Because we are…

Washed by the Water

In our service to Jesus sometimes we have to make hard decisions. They are sometimes hard to carry, sometimes they come with a price. I am reminded of what Jesus said and did for the disciples in John 13:6-8 Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet  …6He came to Simon Peter, who asked Him, “Lord, are You ...

Learning and Leaning 

These mini moments don’t define us, these moments refine us.

No matter what game we are facing, we can find strength in the leaning and not the ability
