December 21 2012

Heaven is now. The joy of the Lord is available to us now and is our strength in troubled times.

Peace is here. When we put down our knowledge to pick up wisdom, we gain a peace that surpasses earthly understanding.

As believers we have the hope of glory now because Christ now dwells in us. This earth may pass away tomorrow, or 100 years from tomorrow.  When this happens should not concern us because we have access to all things in heaven now!

Is there mourning? Is there grief? No... not when we understand that earth and everything on it is temporary, and to be absent from it is to be in His presence. Everything we see, He sees. Spirit speaks to spirit beyond human language.

Be still... and know that He is God.

Seek Him... and the glory of heaven is yours... now.

Merry Christmas

Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night

Spectacular Savior
Bring your light
Illuminate my soul
Turn my heart right

Break the blackness
Divide the stirring wind
Pierce my heart
Renew my mind

The Princess

Dedicated to Kira Fry - Miss PA Pre-Teen
By Christine Emmick

There once was a young girl
Who was modest and fair
No matter the quest
She did it with flair

Her friends they were many
‘cause she thought of others
She treated them all
Like sisters and brothers

Then one special day
She embarked on a quest
Even though it was tough
She gave it her best

The plan wasn’t hers
It was laid at her feet
But she’d not accept
The sting of defeat

She took not the strife
The toil or despair
She left them behind
Then gave up her hair

Did she sulk or weep?
That’s not our girl’s way
She smiled and accepted
Each God given day

As a gift to unwrap
And then give to others
The joy that she’d found
To her sisters and brothers

When you lead like a servant
Like Jesus did
God gives you gifts
That others would dread

Since she knew the difference
Between good gifts and bad
God knew He could trust her
With this gift that He had

Alopecia’s the gift
That she has been given
It’s brought only to those
Who are worthy of leading

Into the Arms of the Savior

This is a work in progress... I'll be updating it.


Who is the place that you fall to
When you are at the end of your line
While you clutch desperately the ragged ends
As the rope starts to unwind

Into the arms of the Savior
Into the arms of grace

Where is the place that you run to
When all of your "friends" turn their back
You call over and over and no one is there
And you've taken all you can take

Into the arms of the Savior
Into the arms of grace

The Power of Forgivness

Offense dissolves in forgiveness
Pain is changed to joy
Words of power, grace and Life
Restore what was lost
And bring broken hearts into mend
Scars now dissappear
Fading to distant memory

River of Life

You and I are called to be a river, not a stagnant pool. This river of life that flows to us, in order to receive God's full blessing, must also flow through us.

We are responsible for the spiritual health of others. This is an awesome responsibility, but God gives us every single tool we need to perform this job. No matter how wide our reach, you and I will affect those whom we touch. If we choose to use the tools God gives us, we will make a positive, life changing impact.

I am not Love's destination...I am Love's conduit.

As I sit here realizing the lives He has entrusted to me, the awesome responsibility bestowed upon me, and the ultimate grace given me to perform the task, I am not afraid. I am encouraged, awestruck, and empowered. God chose me to influence the lives of others. He gives you the same calling, and the same gift.

"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

- John 7:38 ESV

"My Husband"
Words as sweet as dripping honey
Comfort... Joy... Thankfulness
Abiding with him for all of this life

Taking love with all it's bitter and sweet moments
Yes, marriage is not just a river of sweet
But in the brook there are bitter stones
Interrupting the flow

But yet love can carry on... if you let it
It goes on to the still pools where two become one
And the deep calls, and they meet God
And then they truly know what love is

A Prayer for Today

Dear God,

Today I give you my head
My heart... and my tongue
My hands and feet
My will and my day

Fill me with Your Holy Spirit
So that my mouth will sing of your glory
And let me walk in Your grace
So that my steps are filled with favor
