making the ways of the world my concern.
Then after the pain from each evil event,
I beg for forgiveness and try to repent.
It seems I'm now caught in a cycle of sin-
I'm clean for a season, then sinning again.
Thank God, despite my valleys and trails,
with each new day, His love never fails.

wherever you range or roam..
Whether here or there,
in depths of despair,
or so far away from home.
Let your heart go forth to meet Him.
Lay down your burdens and rest.
He's always near,
sees every tear,
and calls you to be His guest.

Come Thou unexpected Jesus,
surprise us with Your presence.
May Your Spirit fall afresh-
Your Holy, Blessed essence.
Come Thou to live within us,
invade the deepest parts,
keep us by Your loving grace
and heal the hardest hearts.
Come, though we're unworthy,
whether morn or afternoon.
Come when least expected-
we're hoping that it's soon.

nothing hanging on the wall-
no furniture there, floors were bare,
and echos down every hall.
Placed our possessions within,
ourselves and all that we own-
a husband and wife, with loving and life,
the house turned into a home.
The time changed into memories,
the days and weeks into years-
that special space was a magical place,
filled with laughter and tears.
Then one day we left forever,
to a home on another road.
We left it behind knowing we'd find
another delightful abode.
Thinking back on that old house,
recalling the blessings again,
it's now plain to see every memory
was the living of life within.
The house itself wasn't special,
but the life we lived inside-
homes with love, blessed from above,
are a special place to abide.

No government can save us.
No political party can.
No left or right-wing anything-
No woman alive or man.
No human has the answers-
they never can nor could.
Only God can save us,
turning evil into good.
It's not about changing minds
to see some point of view..
It's about changing hearts,
making all things new.
Be the light in my darkness, O Lord, a torch in the black of my night. Be living breath in the valley of death, that Your glories burn...
I talk too much about myself, but pray that won't continue. I pray instead my main desires might find another venue. ...
Love one another to truly be wise.. Look at your brother through Jesus' eyes. He sees all their sin, and yet loves them still...
I'll look to the hills, to the mountains above me, to Him who fulfills, who constantly loves me. When I fail and fall, He...
