Broken Road

This was my twist on the popular love song “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts that I did at church for Valentines Day weekend as a way to say thank you to Jesus for always being my side through all of the ups and downs of my life.

I believe that everything that we experience, good and bad, simply leads us to His truth for our lives which includes all of the ups and downs and everything else in between.  And as I get older, I can see that all of those times, places and people that maybe were not the most pleasant to experience, were merely preparing me to help find my way back to Him.  And because of Him, I can forgive others as I have been forgiven because that burden is finally freed from my shoulder, so that I can really live this life in the way that He would want me to live.  A life filled with grace that is sufficient for every possibility and circumstance that we will encounter on the road called life..

Yes, the road is broken but the journey always leads us back to confront the reality of the cross and the open arms of Jesus Christ.   “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him (John 3:17).”   So if we do not have condemnation from a God that could/should condemn us for our mistakes, then how could we condemn others?  Can we forgive those who trespass against us as we have been forgiven by Almighty God?  Yes, I believe that we can.

We can only share or gift something that we have an abundance of.  We have an abundance of amazing grace, love and forgiveness, so let’s share that gift that was given to us on this broken road called life.  We can’t run to Him by holding on to the baggage of yesterday, so let’s just let go and let God by following His truth and message; that all people are children of God, who are loved as His unique creation, and need to be treated with dignity, compassion and respect.  Amen.

No more doubts

Lord Jesus, thank You for another day and another moment to be in Your presence. Ever since you touched our hearts, You gave us more than just dreams because You showed us what God can do and gave us all a reason to live.   Lord, some of us are trying to deal with the weight of the world on our own. Remind us that even though we must walk through the dark valleys in this life we are never alone. So take away any of the doubts that we have and fill them with the truth of everything that You are. You are the hope, the way and light.  Lord, You are everything that You that You say You are. Give us the wisdom to trust in You for all things and give us the strength to glorify You in all that we do. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

You are the song

Lord Jesus, thank You for being everything that You are. Thank You for this life.  This journey that started at the foot of the cross: the place where all of the darkness of the world lost to the light of God’s amazing love. You gave us more than just words on a page, you showed us what God can do and gave us a reason to live. The world may bring us down but, because of You, we don’t need to stay there. Whatever issue we are going through, Your resurrection, allows us to go through life’s dark valleys without fear for You are always with us. Jesus, You are the song that opens up our souls to the story that is bigger than ourselves. Your life, death and resurrection gave us glimpses of our own humanity intertwined with the compassionate relationship with our Creator. Because of You, we live. Because of You, we can love. Because of You we have hope in the promise of never ever being separated from the Father’s love.

Print Your Word on our hearts

Lord God, breathe into us new life today and lift our eyes off of the daily rubble so that we can magnify You in this place.   Whatever circumstances we are in (financial, emotional, spiritual, or personal), take us to the place that is the presence of Jesus Christ.  Don’t let shame or guilt stop us from experiencing Your grace and salvation. Just make Your presence known and print Your word on our hearts.   Take away any doubt of our worth because the cross at Calvary shows the cost of Your love for all of us, and by taking Your first steps on this earth You changed our history forever.    Help us to see Your greatness.  Help us to hear Your word.  And help us to live Your love.  For “no matter what comes, we will always taste victory through Him who loved us.  For (we) have every confidence that nothing – not death, life…the present, the future…nor any created thing – can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39).

On our way rejoicing

On Our Way Rejoicing

Lord God,  Open the window that reveals Your truth so that we can breathe in Your grace, mercy and forgiveness.  Bring joy back into our lives, into our jobs, and into our relationships so that we will be so overwhelmed by the awareness of Your presence, that we can’t help but experience the joy that only comes from knowing Jesus.  Just simplify the complexity of the world into Your truth: That the battle has already been won and that God lives in this moment and so should we. So as we receive Christ today, at this altar, let us all remember that He also goes with us into the world that He so loves and that we can only share what we have an abundance of.  So let us be full and overflowing with the joy, love and compassion that has already been given to us by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
