i miss you

October 10th, 2010

i miss You

by shane barnard and will hunt

put down your paper plate
come to the table made
deep blue china
found on the table by the wine
so fine

it brings out flavor
like You bring out color in life

oh, i miss You so
the feel of forever
oh, that taste i know
it hurts to remember
unfortunately high
ironically dissatisfied
i miss You
i miss You

oh, i miss You so
the feel of forever
oh, that taste i know
it hurts to remember

i had a fleeting thought this morning
and i mentioned you today
it breaks my heart just to know You in part
and not to be with You where You are

The One True Thing

July 12th, 2010

“…Only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42

One thing.

Him.

Where do we find Him?

In a living book…so sharp…

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

He is there…

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

So I cling to the only true thing.

Jesus Christ, the very Word of God.

And I trust His Words because I trust Him.

I’m searching and praying and listening and trusting…sitting at His feet, hanging on to every Word…

“…Mary, who sat before the Master, hanging on every word he said.”  Luke 10:39

Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?

And He said to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ ”This is the great and foremost commandment. ”The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”  Matthew 22:36-40

Some Encouragment As The Day Draws Near

November 11th, 2008

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that we have miraculous power in Jesus Christ.

I know for me that often times I get bogged down in feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, like a failure, etc. Some days I strive and strive and fall so short, and others I don’t even try. But I have the power of Jesus in me to accomplish the things I myself won’t, and the grace to enter into when my efforts falter. I have the promise of God that HIS strength will carry me through, change me, grow me, and will refresh me to begin anew each day.

Here is a verse that encouraged me this morning, and perhaps will you (I personalized it a bit for ya!):

Hebrews 10:15-25

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to YOU; for after saying,

This is the covenant that I will make with YOU

“After those days, says the LORD: I will put my laws upon YOUR heart, and on YOUR mind I will write them,”

He then says,

And YOUR sins and YOUR lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin. Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let YOURSELF draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure watter. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL…”

He Called Him Friend

June 29th, 2008

“And Jesus said to him [Judas], ‘Friend, do what you have come for.’ Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him…Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him…Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head…took the reed and began to beat Him on the head. After they had mocked Him…they had crucified Him…Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.”

Matthew 26:50-27:50
