Oh come let us adore Him.
So many reasons to adore the Lord. For the family I have. For the boys He gifted me all those years ago. For the friends. For the strangers He places in front of me to love on His behalf. For using me for His glory to bring encouragement to my next door neighbor in his darkest hour. For my neighbor hearing Him speak through me, pulling him down from the ledge of despair, giving him strength to move forward a minute at a time. For the sunrise. For the air I breathe. For my life. For all of it, good, hard, wonderful, crazy. For my Savior. For Him.
Oh come let us adore Him!
Time for Five Minute Friday!
Once upon a time, I was outside the gate, wondering how to get in. Then my friend told me how Jesus changed her life.
There are many forms of poverty in this world, many millions of people outside the gate. I’m on the inside now. I so want my life to be about bringing the outsiders in because those without Christ are the poorest of all.
Oh God, give me eyes to see them, the ones who don’t know you. Give me the courage to greet them with your love, your compassion. To tell them about how much you love them, to offer the greatest gift they will ever receive! Love, me

"Because there is a king in Bethlehem. In backwater Bethlehem, an unmarried hardly- woman in labor giving birth to your King, and He will be your newborn and ancient and coming and future King, newly birthed, whose goings- forth have been from of old, from ancient days. A King like and infinitely greater than King Arthur, with his tomb inscription: “Hic iacet Arthurus, rex quondam, rexque futurus” “Here lies Arthur, king once, and king to be.” Forsake the fairy tales for the story that is history: this Bethlehem King is the true and the real once and still coming King the King of humanity’s memory. The King from the beginning, back when we were young and the world was Edenic and the wonderland was us." #Advent #Christmas #TheGreatestGift
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there’s someone somewhere
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Lyrics from Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out For A Hero
We have a Hero! His name is Jesus Christ! Praise God!
