Jesus Wept

Yesterday when I went to bed, I did not want to write a blog post today. I knew that I should, and I knew that I was probably going to, but that didn’t increase my desire. When I got up this morning though, I had new energy. I knew what I wanted to talk about. It was the words that my mother has said at least a hundred times:

“You just need to keep moving forward.”

Angel at My Side

 

ANGEL AT MY SIDE

BE EVER-NEAR, NOT FAR.

ANGEL AT MY SIDE

DRAW ME CLOSER AND CLOSER TO GOD.

ANGEL AT MY SIDE

LEAD ME IN MY WAITING AND UNKNOWN.

ANGEL AT MY SIDE

I NEED PEACE AND HUMBLE JOY.

ANGEL AT MY SIDE

Encouragement Café: There's a Storm Coming

Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25 NKJV
When hurricane and flood warnings are issued, cities begin to prepare for the storms by sandbagging, boarding up windows, and buying supplies. They heed the warnings and they are prepared.

Independence?

I have never done anything that is entirely my own. This sounds absurd, right?

But, let me ask, that breath you just took…is that you?

Did you breathe in you?

That makes no sense.

Well, if I don’t breathe, I die. But, if what I breathe comes from something that is not me, then I am not living alone.

I never have been.

I did not ask to come into being. Something, whether it be God, chance, science or just simply my mother created me. I did not give life to myself.

My Favorite Albums, Part One: Neal Morse Lifeline

Of all Neal Morse albums, perhaps none is more maligned than 2008’s Lifeline.  After a string of weighty concept albums, Morse released Lifeline, a traditional rock record featuring a collection of seven songs with no common narrative, recurring musical themes, or progression.  Because of this, some considered it a disappointment that lacked the substance of Morse’s earlier work.  Those who put expectations aside, however, will find great songs that rank among Morse’s best  – and an album that serves as an easy entry point for new fans.
