For what purpose?

“Who then can be saved?” But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:25-26 (ESV) "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

He who does these things

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?     Who shall dwell on your holy hill? He who walks blamelessly and does what is right     and speaks truth in his heart; who does not slander with his tongue     and does no evil to his neighbor,     nor takes up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a vile person is despised,     but who honors those...

Limitless, undying Love, which shines around me

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup; They slither while they pass. They slip away across the universe. Pools of sorrow, waves of joy, are drifting through my opened mind, Possessing and caressing me. Jai guru deva om. [Glory to the Divine Teacher.] Nothing's gonna change my world.

I like to be here when I can

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day; Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town, Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain. You are young...

Cannabis is not a “drug”

I want to point something out very quickly that has bothered me for quite some time. "Marijuana" is not a "drug." It is a natural plant, and its proper name is "Cannabis."

Too often, I think, Christians pray for God to rescue us from our storms and trials. We fail to see that it is the trials that will bring us closest to God by strengthening our faith and showing us the extent of our need for Him.

Into the Storm

Love Through Blog

“Go out and stand on the mountain in the Lord’s presence.”

At that moment, the Lord passed by. A great and mighty wind was tearing at the mountains and was shattering cliffs before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was a voice, a soft whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.

1 Kings 19:11-13 (HCSB)

I’ve been pondering the metaphor of life as a storm at sea. There are four moments in scripture that I feel are particularly important to this metaphor. The first is quoted above. No matter what storm I face, I must…

 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Jesus, in Matthew 6:19-21 (ESV)

I have what I wish to be a short, encouraging word for my fellow Christians. Since I am adopted into the family of God through the power of Jesus Christ, I am a child of God. I have begun to think about that in a literal sense. What would I do if I wanted to be a part of God’s family as much as my flesh and blood family? For one thing, I would want to be talking to them. I would want to be getting to…
