11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

I don’t know what to say. Sometimes all you can do is hold onto the promises. And believe that they are true. Because they are.

psalm 50:10-11

10 For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

My Abba daddy owns the cattle on a thousand hills…

…how about yours?

“Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.”

~ Psalm 86:11

God is truth. When we walk with God, we walk in truth. When we walk with truth, we walk in God. When God teaches us truth, we know truth and we are united with God who is truth. When we know God who is truth, we know truth and we can teach truth.

Somehow GOD and TRUTH cannot be separated.

LOVE LOVED greatly

“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13 NKJV

Jesus is LOVE. The very essence of the stuff; walking, living, breathing:  LOVE. LOVE is Jesus and Jesus LOVED us so much, He laid down His life for us. He died for us. You. Me. Us. There was no greater LOVE than this because LOVE LOVED greatly.

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”

 – Psalm 24:1 NKJV

This earth belongs to God; He did create it, after all. I don’t know why we ever thought it belonged to us in the first place. And “they that dwell therein”? That’s us. We were made for God. We belong to Him. He wants us. Each of us has a void inside that can only be filled by God. Until you allow Jesus Christ into your heart and life, that void will remain empty. It can only be satisfied by the One who created it.

You are not beautiful because you apply makeup or wear nice clothes or have your hair professionally done. You are not beautiful because you can paint with ease or play with strength or sing with splendor. You are not beautiful because your eyes reflect the stars or your skin is naturally smooth or your physique firm.

You are beautiful because of this.

God is beauty. You spend time in His presence, you love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, you invite Him into your life….you are suddenly beautiful because you are a direct mirror that reflects His beauty. That’s when you’re beautiful.

It’s not about us.

It’s about Jesus Christ.

It always was; it never changed.

God IS beauty. We reflect that.

That’s beautiful.

I could work for money

I could perform for fame

I could perfect myself

But what do I gain?

 

A life without Christ

Is a life about me

A life lost in myself

Is a life never free

 

I could do the same things

But in a different way

I could do them with joy in my face

And the love of Jesus each and every day

 

I could work for money

Money to give

I could perform for fame

Fame to show others how Jesus lives

 

I could perfect myself

Perfect to be strong

The music is different now

A new ending to my song
