O Great God
O great God of highest heaven Occupy my lowly heart Own it all and reign supreme Conquer every rebel power Let no vice or sin remain That resists Your holy war You have loved and purchased me Make me Yours forevermore I was blinded by my sin Had no ears to hear Your voice Did not know Your love within Had no taste for heaven’s joys Then Your Spirit gave me life Opened up Your Word...

Dad: You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear...
Me: Voices singing, let's be jolly...

Dad: BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY SAY!
Me: NO, DAD! HAHAHA IT'S "BOUGHS".
Dad: Pfft. English.
Ever since I could remember, my family raised me on Christian values. From the very beginning my parents taught me that there was only one God and that anyone that said otherwise was wrong. And even though that was what I was taught to believe, I never applied that in my own heart and saw it as just a religion. I considered going to church to be a normal routine. I remember waiting impatiently for...
How Deep The Father's Love For Us

“Smilingly Leading You to Hell” by Tim Challies
Could it be that we really don't want to know?
“What God would have us do in a given situation becomes increasingly straightforward the more we know him, and the way we know him is through the Word. Immersing ourselves in the Word is to immerse ourselves in the character of God. “Sometimes, despite regular attendance on the Word of God and prayer, we still aren’t sure what to do. Could it be that we really don’t want...
I don't like this game.
Brendan (8yrs old): Ate Jainah! Do you want to play the boyfriend game? Me: …What. Him: The boyfriend game! I have to sing the alphabet song to you. If you move, I’ll stop and the letter I stop at will be the beginning of your boyfriend’s name. Me: …What! Him: Yeah, so if you move when I say the letter “G”, your boyfriend’s name will be…....

“Appreciation of Truth is Not Application of Truth” by Rick Holland
Notes from "Humility". Again.
Just to remind myself… ———————————- Thought: It’s possible to admire humility while remaining proud ourselves. There must be purposeful application of truth. In every step of our Christian growth and maturity, and throughout every aspect of our Christian obedience and service, our greatest foe is pride and our greatest...
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long; This weight of glory pours on my soul; Longing for heaven where I’ll be made whole. Perfect submission, perfect delight, Visions of rapture now burst on my sight; Angels,...

Union With Christ.
O Father, Thou hast made man for the glory of thyself, and when not an instrument of that glory, he is a thing of nought; No sin is greater than the sin of unbelief, for if union with Christ is the greatest good, unbelief is the greatest sin, as being cross to thy command; I see that whatever my sin is, yet no sin is like disunion from Christ by unbelief. Lord, keep me from committing the...
