I've been thinking alot about forgiveness lately. And how difficult it is for some yet seemingly easy for others. I know in my own life there have been times when I have clung to my anger like a baby with an old worn blanket. Content with the familiar feelings of bitterness and frustration over a situation where I felt I was wronged by someone else. And feeling justified in those feelings. Believing that anger was worth the loneliness and emptiness. But in the end it wasn't worth it at all. For me, forgiveness came too late. Too late to heal the wounded spirit and too late to rebuild a relationship. Don't let the sun go down on your anger. Good advice. For all it will do is give the Devil a foothold and eventually you will have regrets.

Do you ever find yourself wondering what your purpose is in this life? How to pass the time while waiting on the eternal glory that we have been promised through Christ?

Romans 9:17 says "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show my power in you, and that my name may be declared in all the earth."

When God originally created man he did so to have fellowship with Him. But our sin broke that fellowship with God. He loved us so and wanted us to be with him so much that he did the only thing that would prove how much he loved us. He sacrificed the only son that was ever born to him and this son died a very painful agonizing death so that we might have a relationship with God once again. And I believe that we all now have a God spot deep in our hearts that only he can feel. We chase after everything and we seek purpose in anything when all the while deep within we know that our hearts long for God.

So today I would pray that you would find your purpose for this life. That you would find fellowship with God once again and that your life would reflect his glory and power to those around you.

To live is Christ. That is your purpose. May your life be purposeful today.

God, May we always see the need that we have to be in a right relationship with you. And may that love that we receive from you be reflected to those around us and that you would always find us faithful to live our lives on purpose for you. Be our strength on this journey and fill our hearts with your love so that we can bring hope to others. Amen.

All I Can Say by David Crowder Band

I heard this song and it really made me think of all the times that I wondered if God could even hear my heart breaking. So I made this video and wanted to share it. I hope it touches you the way it touched me. God does hear us even when we can't say much at all. God hear our brokenness and be our strength.

Going Around in Circles

Do you ever feel that you are just walking in circles? That your life just constantly ebbs and flows and you end up in the same place you said you wouldn't be again? I find myself there time and again. I keep saying this time is going to be different. But a few weeks or months go by and I end up right back in that rut. Like the sunken part of the mattress that, no matter how many times you flip it over, it sucks you right back to the same hole. Well, Jesus says everything old is made new again. So here I go one more time. Create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right spirit within me. Capture my heart again. I'm aching to be used by you in ways that I can't even imagine. I sit at your feet and wait on you to move.
