Let your preoccupation with heaven guide your earthly behavior. If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are … Continue reading Best life now?
‘Nevertheless, since I belong to Christ I am continually with God’! By this is meant continually upon His mind, He is always thinking of me for my good. Continually before His eye – the eye of the Lord never sleepeth, but is perpetually watching over my welfare. Continually in His hand, so that none shall be able to pluck me thence. Continually on His heart, worn there as a memorial, even as the high priest bore the names of the twelve tribes upon his heart for ever. Thou always thinkest of me, O God. The bowels of Thy love continually … Continue reading Jesus loves me
I saw a video link on my friend’s Facebook earlier this week about a girl who was born with Down syndrome. Before she was born, the doctors told her parents she was going to have development issues. Her father, who claimed to have “superior genes,” wanted his wife to abort her. This story grabbed my attention because: I’m a runner. I grew up with several great friends who had Down syndrome. I feel like God has some role picked out for me in the future involving special needs ministry. I just finished reading a book called, “Disability & The … Continue reading broken vessels

Those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles … (Isaiah 40:31, NASU) There she was – a beautiful, majestic American Bald Eagle – separated from the curious crowd by a moat and a four-foot fence. She was perched on a large log. Above her the open sky beckoned – no cage, no netting, nothing to obstruct her flight. Yet, there she perched observing her observers. She made no effort to leave her perch. Actually, she could not have flown if she had wanted.… Continue reading Broken Eagles
The Bible is full of examples of Christ’s love. It is sacrificial and selfless. Look at what He did for us on the cross. Look at how the Bible describes Christ as the groom and the Church as His bride. 1 Corinthians 13; John 3:16; Ephesians 5; 1 John 4:7-12 (And yes, you will need a tissue to make it through this one.)

This is a MUST READ! Mi hermano, Ernesto, writes regularly on his blog, Just A Thought. The latest article, “In Defense of Genesis,” is a powerful apologetic for trusting the entire Bible as God’s actual Word – infallible and complete. The book of Genesis is the book of Beginnings. We can trust what God has said from Genesis 1:1 all the way to Revelation 22:21. Christ created the universe with a word. He chose to accomplish it in 6 literal 24-hour periods of time we call “days.” Read God’s Word and believe it. 2 Timothy 3:16!
