T.H.I.N.K.

Is it …TRUE?

       …HELPFUL?

       …INSPIRING?

       …NECESSARY?

       …KIND?

 

“There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.”

— Proverbs 29:20 (NLT)

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

— Robert Frost

The World: Dream away. Follow them and work hard for them and you will get whatever you want.

Christ: Give up your dreams for me and I will grant you something that’s beyond your wildest imaginations.

When I Found Myself Wanting

I’m a long way from home

Brown barked neighbors replaced by grey stone

I’ve got all I need in my purse

I’ve gained freedom from my curse

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

I walk the winding dirt road

Towards my pasture where I lay my load

This is my life, I do to it whatever I want

No more cages and thorns, I recant

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

Happiness, happiness, happiness, that’s what I need

Not crosses, not nails, not persecution after a good deed

Sex, booze, coke; rock the party on

I’m my king; I’m my lord; I’m my don

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

I wake up to the golden sun

I’m no different; I’m still the wild, crazy son

I check my green bag, found bare leather

Quiet filled the houses as I pass hither

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

I settle beside filthy swine

Carousing and reveling as they dine

I share with their dirty chow

My crown falls in humbled bow

Because of my wanting and desiring

I have become my undoing

No more cages? Bah! I am my prison

No more thorns? Bah! I am my double-edged weapon

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

I walked headlong to my curse

My life only became much worse

Life for a lie, that’s what I gained

Searching for happiness was all but vain

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

I come upon a hill far from hidden

It seemed familiar, by nostalgia was I bitten

A lone figure, gloriously waited on a throne

He didn’t budge, didn’t cast the first stone

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

He threw away his radiant crown

Stripped all his royalty and regality down

He stumbled, was bruised and bled as he ran to me

Hoisted me up to his shoulders as if I was once again a baby

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

Upon his back I see the world anew

And although I still sin, I’ll never meet my fiery due

Compared to his overwhelming grace, my wrongs are but a few

He’ll always be there, ready to run towards me and to you too.

Mouth Speaks

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”

“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”

– Luke 6:45  (NIV)

Her mouth speaks from that which fills her heart.

What’s in your heart?

Bloodstained Hands

Our hearts have doors through which God wants to pass into.

But still, we push Him away.

However, no matter how sharp the thorns and spikes we put on our door,

He will still knock.

“Love…always perseveres.”

— 1 Corinthians 13:7

Pains of the Past

“Dwell in the pains of the past, and you become a prisoner of depression.”

 “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already you can see it now!”

 — Isaiah 43:18-19

Trust God’s goodness and mercy and start pleasing Him today.
Wash those bitter tears away. Drop the throbbing luggage of the past.
Remember that God gives us the strength to overcome the difficulties of the past, the present, and the future.

God Knows

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
      You have recorded each one in your book.” —Psalm 56:8 NLT 

People live in a world of heartache, pain, suffering, and longing. We live a life full of complaints and frustrations. We think that nobody understands us and that nobody can help us but ourselves.

That is when we are WRONG.

God understands all our pains and  frustrations. He knows every reason behind our heartaches and every solution to our problems.

 He MADE us. He KNOWS us deeply.

 “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.” 

                                                                                                                                 —1 Peter 5:7, NLT

Place your problems in God’s hands. He will NEVER let you down.
