Jesus Christ never changes,
He’s ‘The Truth’ through all the ages.
Creator, Redeemer, Saviour,
Ours now and forever.
He was and is and will be,
The ‘I Am’, The Almighty.
He’s the Alpha and Omega,
And everyone’s Mama and Papa.
He’s a lion and a lamb,
He’s The King and The Man.
He lived and was dead,
And rose again, as He said.
He has the keys to life and death,
Will you put Him to the test?
I believe everyone is capable of doing good or ill to another, given the right, or should I say, wronged circumstances.
My mother’s 3rd husband, I still refuse to refer to him as my stepfather, attempted to take her life more than once.
After the last attempt, that I was aware of, I threatened his life if he ever harmed her again. I was a teenager and could have committed the act without remorse. I thank God that He took control and released me from that fate.
Like I’ve said many times, “We never really know anyone. Only He knows the heart.”
“Thunder rumbles in the mountain passes
And lightning rattles the eaves of our houses.
Floodwaters await in our avenues.
Snow falls upon snow…to avalanche
Over unprotected villages.
The sky slips low and gray and threatening.
We question ourselves. What have we done to so affront nature?
We interrogate and worry God.
Are you there? Are you there, really?
Does the covenant you made with us still hold?”
(lines from ‘Amazing Peace’ by Maya Angelou)
How would you answer?
I’d like to hibernate with you,
Stowed away in a cave for two,
Wrapped up in silence and darkness,
Awaiting Heavenly access,
Dreaming of mysteries unveiled,
Praising The King that we’ve ‘Hailed’.
Someday our night will be done,
When we wake to face The Son.
The lightning flashes
Pull down the sashes.
Throw back the draperies
Look over the trees.
The sky’s your canvas
Watch, don’t let it pass!
Remember what paints
Before it goes faint.
What have you seen?
What does it mean?
The End Times: Universal or Personal?
“I heard tell once of a Jefferson City lawyer who had a parrot that’d wake him each morning, crying out, ‘Today is the day the world shall end, as scripture has foretold!’ And one day the lawyer shot him, for the sake of peace and quiet, I presume. Thus fulfilling, for the bird at least, his prophecy.” ~President Lincoln (“Lincoln”)
Moore, OK tornado…
Again I’m realizing the need to praise and thank God for science and technology; without which, we wouldn’t have been forewarned about extreme weather conditions and the need to be prepared. Thank you Lord for the knowledge you have given to those who use it for our protection…Amen.
Being forewarned about these possibilities also gives us a reason to go to the Lord in prayer. Maybe that’s His ulterior motive…you think?
Food for Thought…When we survive a catastrophic event that may have brought death and/or much destruction to others, we of course are very thankful to God for His love and protection. But does that mean those who didn’t survive or had much loss and destruction weren’t loved by God or loved as much as the others? How would you respond?
