Having Jesus in my life is like dancing with delight in the rain of redemption.
A fascinating feeling. An endless elation.
Dancing with my Savior.
Try it, you’ll love it!
“Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!”

“The fact of God is necessary for the fact of man. Think God away and man has no ground of existence.”
― A.W. Tozer
Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”
— Psalm 14:1 (NLT)
Deep within our hearts lie a longing that only God can fill.
Do not ignore Him. Pursue Him!
“In a world of liars, cheats, deceivers, and con artists, isn’t it a relief to know there is SOMEONE you can trust?” – Charles Swindoll
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way.” – Proverbs 3: 5-6
Unquestioning the Lord fuels hope to your soul.
“If we live, It’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord.
So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.”
— Romans 14:8 (NLT)
“There is only one happiness: to please Him.
Only one sorrow, to be displeasing to Him.”
Life is all about Him. Nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else.
Jesus, overhearing, shot back, “Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? I’m here inviting the sin-sick, not the spiritually-fit.” – Mark 2:17
The difference is in the degree of perceiving it. For the closer you approach the Holy God the more you realize the degree of your unacceptability to Him. The closer you walk towards Him, the greater he reveals your greed, lust, malice, and self-adoration in your life.
Thus, when one realizes his inability to save himself, the need for a savior arises, and only when that need arises can we start being sanctified. And we are being sanctified we realize that sins is a struggle that is dealt with till the last breath.
Hence, we are beings that will ever be struggling but never accepting of sin, ever struggling and ever hoping until the time we meet Christ.
“I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”
— Helen Keller
People today aim very big with big-time evangelistic concerts and showbiz conferences.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with such events.
However, God is glorified as a simple man accepts a beggar into his home as much as a singer leads 10,000 people in worship.
Let’s not forget that simple acts of service in humility are beautiful events in themselves.
I realize that my soul hungers for His infiniteness, that the whole creation is of no value to my soul and His infiniteness surpasses my desires.
The idea that the mountains, the seas, the sky, and the stars are not enough to give me everlasting is as real to me as air is to a fish.
And His glory is as real to me as the rising sun, that day-by-day, through its light, I am able to see everything.
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
What we call God reveals how we think about him.
And how we think about him shapes how we relate to him.
And how we relate to him determines how we interpret his work in us and his purpose for us.
~Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep~
If my people, who are called by my name,
will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven,
and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
~2 Chronicles 7:14
When you pray, you might not see the transformation, but you will know that it’s happening
…for it starts in you.
“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”
2 Timothy 3:16, MSG
We’re all theologians. The question is
whether what we know about God is true.
