The remedy for human problems is God’s Amazing Grace!

Every person you see is someone Jesus thought enough of to die for. Remember that in how you treat others.

A bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

If I didn’t know what it hurts like to be broken, then how would I know what it feels like to be whole. 

If I didn’t know what it cost like to be rejected, then I wouldn’t know your love coming home. 

If I didn’t know what it looks like to be dirty, then I wouldn’t know what it feels like to be clean. 

And if all of my shame hadn’t drove me to hide in the shadows, then I wouldn’t know the beauty of being free. 

Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok. 

Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me.

Jesus Steps In

When before God I humbly stand, There’ll be no one there to hold my hand, No one telling me what to say, Just me and God face to face. 

My Book before God will be opened wide, nothing I can change or try to hide, every account has been accurately written: 

There the works I’ve done will speak for me. Did God’s commandments, I faithfully keep? Now Jesus steps in as my witness, before my Father, He will confess, I am His; and truly blessed. For I have a right to the tree of life; step through the gates, and into the city,
