God's way of living usually contradicts the world's.

To live for God, we must be ready to say and do what seems strange to the world.
When others take, be willing to give. When others hate, be willing to love. When others abuse, be willing to help.
By giving up our own rights to serve others, we will one day receive what God has in store for us.

Always Been About You

Out here, the greatest love is bold
Out here, the greyest skies are gold
Out here, it's all laid on the line
Out here, you're always on my mind

And it's always been about love
It's always been about grace
It's always been about hope
And it's always been about faith
It's always been about peace
It's always been about truth
Everything that's ever been before
It's always been about you

Out here, we're running with the light
Out here, we're breaking up the night
Out here, the lost are coming home
Cause out here, no one goes alone

And it's always been about love
It's always been about grace
It's always been about hope
And it's always been about faith
It's always been about peace
It's always been about truth
Everything that's ever been before
It's always been about you

We will run for you
Always been about you
We will go for you
Always been about you
We will fight for you, you
We will run, we will run
We will go, we will go
We will fight, oh …

Real Freedom

True Life = True Freedom
Remove the F from Life and it becomes = Lie.
Lies = False Freedom 

Paradigm of this World: Do what I want, where I want... when I want.

This is false freedom... and this could lead you to Slavery.This kind of freedom bites you in the back.

We are free to choose the course of action we would take, but we are not free to choose the consequences that go with them.

With Great Power comes great responsibility.
Choose well, Live well.
Choose poorly, Live poorly.

“When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action. 
When you desire a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.” 
― Lois McMaster Bujold, Memory

To Jesus, the Lover of My Soul

You have set me free
You're all that I seek
Your love completes my life
You're the air that I breathe
You are the reason that I am living...

And I will lift my voice to the one who has saved me
And I'll cry out for more saying, Lord I need You
I will reach out
I'm reaching for mor…

A Woman's Worth

The Wife of Noble Character

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elder…

Yomenya Goemon



This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can't tame a tongue - it's never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. 

Curses and blessings out of the same mouth! A spring doesn't gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? 
Apple trees don't bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don't bear apples, do they? You're not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you? 

Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here's what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It's the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. 
Mean-spirited ambition isn't wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn't wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn't wisdom. It's the furthest thing from wisdom - it's animal cunning, devilish connivin…

Roadtrip with Albear

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,  where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.
― Milan Kundera

Taste and see that the Lord is good; 
 blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. 
Fear the Lord, you his holy people, 
 for those who fear him lack nothing. 
The lions may grow weak and hungry, 
 but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. 
Come, my children, listen to me; 
 I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Psalm 34:8-11

Sip and Gogh | Painting

If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced. - Vincent van Gogh
