Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

strong enough

You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through
Well, forgive me, forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own


Matthew West has such a talent for writing "real" songs, for "real" people, about "real" struggles...

double lesson...

on day four of 21 days of prayer for sons...

James 1:22-27 ESV says, "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless"

This brings up a very important lesson for my "sons", me as well. Honestly, I think I cover all these "important" things...really, there is so much information here, and now I'm afraid I'm missing some of it. Am I failing...I too must commit myself to dig, study, strive, harder, to get the truth, not only for teaching my sons, but for teaching me as well, so that when I am called to, I may be able to answer...

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 Make a new heart in me, My God! Create it out of Your Pureness! (2 Cor. 5:17) Make my heart brand new so that it is totally pure and without anything bad. Dear God, make a new and faithful spirit inside of me. Give me Your Holy Spirit that I may be faithful to You in all things!! (John 3:1-21)

Have my heart stick to You no matter what comes my way!!
