We put so much weight in things
Lucky socks and magic talismans
But it is not the things themselves
that make the difference,
but rather our belief in them,
and not only that
but also any power invested in them
by a Third Party.
Moses’ staff was just a staff
until touched by the hand of God.
Then it became a snake, a battle-winner
and a sea-splitter.
Anything can be amazing when
believed in and touched by the hand of the Divine.
So, believe in others, believe in yourself
and believe in God,
lift all things up to God,
so HE can work wonders in and through them.
What’s the fun
in reading Scripture,
if you won’t let it change you?
What are we talking about,
when we talk about salvation?
What are we saving each other from
When Jesus saves, He saves completely
You are free, totally free
there is a transformation there.
I’ve seen too often that “salvation”
being a transition not into anything new,
but as a baptism back into the ordinary,
only now you dress up on Sundays.
My friends, if you still recognize yourself
after being saved,
you are looking in the wrong place.
We are freed indeed,
from our former selves,
Live the life you always wanted
The LORD GOD is so good.
Standing at the altar
Looking out at the congregation
I feel a tightness of the throat,
a pulsation of the heart.
Is it the Holy Spirit or just nerves?
Jesus transform me,
elevate me into your care
