Jesus Saves

Jesus Saves

Melodic Monday is back to the basics: Jesus Saves by Jeremy Camp! Hope is indeed here: Jesus saves. Our life starts when we realize that because of Jesus we have a ready-made path back to God. We just need to cry out for help and forgiveness; God will be there to give us life and more life. Then joy is indeed here: The Holy Spirit lives in us. Let’s all join with heaven’s song: Jesus saves!  Hope is hereShout the…

Come As You Are!

Come As You Are!

One of the most amazing things about Jesus is that he invites everybody to come to him. Everybody. And as we are. We don’t need to wash our hands and get our act together before approaching Jesus. The most important thing is to run into the arms of Jesus as he is calling us: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to…

Waiting for God’s Timing

Waiting for God’s Timing

Winter is not my favorite season. But I’ve learned to appreciate it and to see it as a necessary part of life. Waiting is not my favorite thing, either. But I’ve learned to appreciate it and to see it as a necessary part of the renewal process. But God’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you. He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you.God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are…

Your Love

Your Love

Happy Melodic Monday to you! Today’s song Your Love is performed by Brandon Heath. The song tells powerfully about God’s amazing, never-failing love. God’s love is enough to light up the darkness. God’s love is more than enough. God’s love certainly is worthy of praise! Listen, be blessed, and praise the Lord! I felt it first when I was youngerA strange connection to the lightI tried to satisfy the hungerI never got it rightI never got it right So I…

You’ve Got a God-Given Dream…Now What?

You’ve Got a God-Given Dream…Now What?

He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (Ephesians 2:10, MSG) God has created us to join him in the work he does. It all starts with God speaking deep in our hearts.  It takes a lot of honest reflection and a lot of discerning prayer to find our what God is calling each one…

God Is Thrice Holy

God Is Thrice Holy

The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. (Psalm 145:17,KJV) God is holy. What does it mean? Holy in Hebrew, qadosh, literally means “to be set apart”. So God is something else! God is distinct from anything and everything. God is totally different from us. God is holy! “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. “For as the sky soars high above earth,…

When the Saints Go Marching in

When the Saints Go Marching in

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! This year I was inspired and touched by his last, prophetic speech. It is amazing and wonderful how God prepares us as to the future. May we all be able to choose to do God’s will over security. In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all the courageous saints gone before us I chose “All the Saints Are Marching In” by Bruce Springsteen with The Seeger Sessions Band to be our Melodic Monday…

Learning to Walk on the Water

Learning to Walk on the Water

There are times when my head takes over my heart. You see, I do trust God to be good. Yet sometimes I seem to be hesitant to instantly obey. I don’t want to delay my responses to God’s commands but sometimes it does happen. There are times when my head says “Wait a minute! Could this really be happening to me? Maybe I should take a pause and think about this before doing anything in haste. But “it’s impossible to…

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

  I was inspired today by Don Miller’s blog post “The Power of Gratitude”. He invited all of us to have “Thankful Thursday”. I thought it was a great idea. Just yesterday I posted this quote on the Flowing Faith facebook page:  “When the heart is full of joy, it always allows its joy to escape. It is like the fountain in the marketplace; whenever it is full it runs away in streams, and so soon as it ceases to…

Healing Rain

It’s Melodic Monday! After the shootings in Tuscon, AZ I felt some Healing Rain was in order. This song is written & performed by Michael W. Smith. May some healing rain come down to this old Tuscon town. May some serious cleansing happen in all our hearts. May God’s healing rain show us mercy, wash us in heaven’s rain!  Healing rain is coming down It’s coming nearer to this old town Rich and poor, weak and strong It’s bringing mercy,…
