prayer, time to be dying with Jesus
letting go of my effort to be closer to God
my belly is pregnant
with swallowed tears
can you hear the crashing waves?
THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS
In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
its one of those days its one of those years its one of those lives
where your heart is the skin
Dad, Ju, you are all too sensitive
A natural gravity, an intrinsic pull.
Some people have it.
They can’t help but want Him
This is a lie.
Nobody has it.
Without His help we can’t want Him
What causes me to become poor in spirit is not the pain given by others, but the harm I give.
With all my mind, heart, soul, and might, I try my best to love and fall miserably.
Only in Christ can He redeem and make beauty out of ashes.
People who lead worship
Insecure in our musical ability to praise God, we are prone to be apologetic saying things like “I don’t know that many chords,” “I’m not use to singing in front of people,” etc
More important than WHAT the worship leader knows about the guitar, voice, etc; it is WHO the worship leader is worshipping. Are we worshipping our selves, the enemy, or God? We can only give eye to one!
