Look Up to The Lord Poem

Why, weak body and dead soul, do you war against the Light?
Why are you afraid of It, and why do you hide?
Do you not know that it is He that already won the fight?
the fight for your soul, O you sinner of night,
the fight is already won and O evil sinner, turn to the glorious might
Of Lord Jesus Christ.
Turn from your sin and turn upon Him, and then you shall be saved
from the terrors of night.

Old Pictures from a LONG time ago!!!!

Hey Brother

By: Sam

This song is speaking to all the brothers and sisters that have repented of their sin
and put their heart in the hands of Jesus Christ alone.

No straying off the path for me...what do you resolve?

A resolution.  Don't many of us resolve many things, things that we have never kept or are perhaps so high and up there that they seem impossible to grasp? 
Two days ago, I typed and printed out my resolution.  Here I will paste it here:
Samantha Maureen Anne’s Life Resolution:

I RESOLVE to glorify God with all my might, body, heart, soul, mind and strength
Every single second of every single day of my life,
Always looking upward at the Cross when I come to a fork in the path and wonder which path I should take,
And to continue in the race that is set before me with diligence and perseverance,
Running toward Jesus closer and closer each and every day,
Constantly opening the petals of my heart and soul more and more to Him
Till I am fully His blossomed, Snow White Rose
Wrapped in all of His glory that is not my own to claim.
This is the choice of my soul, and there is no straying off the path for me,
And there is no turning to look back.
                                                                    God so help me.

Matthew 7:13-14
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go by in it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

2 Timothy 3:12
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution...but you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.

What's your resolution?  Are you willing to stand by Christ no matter who spits in your face?

I am.  Will you join me?

Lillies of Light

When you cry out to Jesus Christ to save you, He does an amazing thing.
The dark dead, withered flower that you were
falls away and He enstills in you a sunshine that warms you from the inside out.
Romans 13:12b-14
Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in relvelry and drunkeness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Walk in His glory, O you Lily of Light!!!

The Strongest Love...

Valentines Day
 came and went so fast!  But even though its over, I wanted to tell ya'll a really special TRUE story that just happened to a friend of ours.
Some friends of ours have 3 kids, and their dad, being in the military, went away be gone for 9 months!  He wouldn't see his family for almost an entire year...and here are the ages of the little children, 11, 6 and now 2.  :)  If your dad or someone you know is in the Army, then you know how hard it is to be apart from someone you love for so long. 
Well, anyway, we've (our family) have been praying for his safe return home to his family,
and God is sooo good!  God is also using us to be a light there, and is doing quite a work in the father's heart. 
Back to the story:
We all hoped so hard that the father would make it home in time for Valentines special and sweet, right?  To be reunited with his family on the day our country celebrates the love we share for one another! Wow! 
The mom of the 3 little kids was hoping he would make it on Valentines, too, and it was Thursday, and her and her eleven-year-old son were waiting at the airport, watching for the fimiliar face of the one they loved...the one they had waited so long to see....
Jayden, (the 11-year old boy) is anxious to see his dad again, and suddenly he can see his dad through the crowds of people!  Longing to run to him, he cried out: "I can see Dad!  I can see Dad!" 
His mom tried to calm him a little, assuring him that as soon as Dad's stuff was checked and everything, that he could come.  But the few moments seemed like eternity to that little boy.  Dad could see his son's face, and Jayden could see his Dad's face, but they couldn't run and embrace till his bags were checked after getting off the airplane!! 
Finally, bags and all, the weary traveler must have forgotten all his fears and worries and tiredness as he ran to his son, and his son ran to him.  "Dad!" Jayden cried.  No doubt tears were shed from both young and old eyes.  Jayden, after months of waiting, finally felt the strong, warm arms of his Dad wrapping around him again.
Wow!  What a story of love!  And yet, let you and I not forget that the Greatest Love Story is the story of a Heavenly Father that holds out His arms to you....saying, "Run to Me, and I will give you rest."  He will never leave nor forsake You...but first you have to run to Him.
Even if your earthly father has forsaken you, and you feel unloved,
There has never been a second when God is not waiting,
His arms open,




Today is my friend's birthday!
We've done so many funny things together...including dressing up at my Grandma's house!  About 3-4 years ago these pictures were taken. 
This dress now fits me perfectly...with gussets added!!(Hahaha.:)

Job 9

Truly I know it is so, but how can a man be righteous before God?  If one wished to contend with Him, he could not answer Him one time out of a thousand. 
God is wise in heart and mighty in strength.  Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered?
He removes the mountains,

and they do not know when He overturns them in His anger;
He shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; He commands the sun, and it does not rise; He seals off the stars; He alone spreads out the heavens, and treads on the waves of the sea;
He made the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades, and the chambers of the south; He does great things past finding out,
Yes, wonders without number.
If He goes by me, I do not see Him;
If He moves past, I do not percieve Him;
If He takes away, who can hinder Him?
Who can say to Him, 'What are You doing?'
God will not withdraw His anger,
the allies of the proud lie prostrate beneath Him.

Salty and Shiny

My Sunday school teacher's reminder to us a few weeks ago!  But it is also God's reminder to His followers,
Matthew 5:16
'Let your light so shine so that men may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.'

'....if salt has lost its flavor?  How then shall it be seasoned?'

Your Jesus DNA

Hey, I bet you all are probably wondering what a 'Jesus DNA' is....:).  Well, as I was swinging on a tire swing today, letting the sunshine fall on my skin and feeling the breeze brush my face, and looking out at the sparkling blue pond a little ways through the trees, I felt prayers bubbling to my lips and I let them spill out. "God, grow me into the woman that you are calling me to be."  God is calling each and every one of us to Him, calling us in a Voice strong and wise, knowing that when you trust in Jesus, He gives you a Jesus DNA.  My way of saying, when you become a Christian, God puts inside of you a purpose and calling.  But when you trust in Jesus, it doesn't just drop there and then you say, "Ok God, now its up to You and I do nothing but wait around here."  But instead, your still giving your all to Him, but your constantly seeking Him, meditating on Him, praying, reading the Bible. 
You find your full potential when you seek God with all your might.  Don't sit back and pretend that your all cool now and you don't have to do anything for the rest of your life. 
'Knock and it will be opened to you...'

Knock.  Knock.  Knock.  Knock.  Again. Again.  And again.  For the rest of your days. 
And He will bless you.
