The Crosswalk

Awesome!! We complain about the cross we bear but don’t realize it is preparing

us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot.

Whatever your cross,

whatever your pain,

there will always be sunshine, after the rain….

Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;

But God’s always ready, to answer your call….

He knows every heartache, sees every tear,

a word from His lips, can calm every fear..

Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,

But suddenly vanish, by dawn’s early light…

The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,

to give you His grace, and send you His love.

“Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matt. 16:24)

Less Than Inspired…

Distracted and Uninspired

Yes, I have been absent from my blog and writing. I am not busy. I have been distracted.

I can’t seem to focus my thoughts clearly here lately. I look at the screen and go blank and stare off into space, don’t know why but that’s just how it has been.

I received the following in an email today. I’m sure I’ve read it before but was again touched by its message and its truth, it seemed like a good substitute for something I’ve written to be something I’ve read.

The email gives credit to Billy Graham as the author, I will assume that this is true and also credit Rev. Graham.

Billy Graham’s Prayer For Our Nation 

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. 

We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. 

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. 

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. 

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called itambition.

 We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. 

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. 

Search us, Oh God, and  knowour hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.

Amen!’

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, ‘The Rest of the Story,’ and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called ‘One nation under God.’

 

Psalm 139:23-24

“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” – KJV
