The Back of the Cross

On the front of the cross is agony 
On the back of the cross is peace
On the front of the cross is sorrow 
On the back of the cross is joy
On the front of the cross is weakness 
On the back of the cross is strength
On the front of the cross is doubt 
On the back of the cross is faith
On the front of the cross is pain 
On the back of the cross is healing
On the front of the cross is deceit 
On the back of the cross is honesty
On the front of the cross are lies 
On the back of the cross is truth
On the front of the cross is bondage
On the back of the cross is freedom
On the front of the cross is darkness 
On the back of the cross is light
On the front of the cross we are lost 
On the back of the cross we find the way
On the front of the cross is sin 
On the back of the cross is forgiveness
On the front of the cross we are stained with sin
On the back of the cross we are white as snow
On the front of the cross is defeat 
On the back of the cross is victory
On the front of the cross is death 
On the back of the cross is eternal life

If we stay on the front of the cross, hell will be our destination
When we go through the cross, and come to the back, our destination is heaven
All is only achieved if we go through the cross.  
Have you seen Him on the front of the cross,  
blood stained, nailed, in agony?  
Have you accepted Him as your sacrifice for your sin? 
If you have, then come through the Cross for victory.  
Come to the back of the cross and realize all God has for you.

Lord, You Are Everything To Me

 I woke up from my sleeping
 Alive and full of breath
 I set my feet upon the floor
 And stood up from my rest
 My eyes could see
 My ears could hear
 I knew that I was blessed
 I said dear Lord
 I have one day more
 To give my very best
  
 I headed out and pondered
 The wonder of His grace
 That He would put His life in me
 Every single day
 With lifted hands
 My heart cried out
 Lord, guide me in your ways
 I could not wait to lift to Him
 My words of grateful praise
  
 Lord, you are marvelous
 Lord, you are glorious
 Lord, you are everything to me
 Lord, you’re amazing
 Lord, you are awesome
 Lord, you are everything to me
 Lord, I will follow you
 Lord, I will worship you
 Lord, you are everything to me
 Lord, I will praise your name
 Lord, I will give my life
 Lord, you are everything to me
   

A Christmas Prayer

 The day is finally here
 A day of mirth and good cheer
 We’ve waited this long
 And sung all the songs
 That deck the halls this year
  
 The Christmas tree shines so bright
 And the houses are covered with lights
 The presents are many
 The foods getting ready
 And soon we’ll all wake from the night
  
 The children flock to the tree
 And open their presents with glee
 Paper flies everywhere
 Parents laugh without a care
 They just hope the children are pleased
  
 Once all the presents are open
 It’s time for the feast to begin
 We sit at the table
 And all who are able
 Take turns as we start to dig in
  
 Then a gentle hand says wait
 Let’s take a minute to pray
 So they all bow their heads
 As these words are said
 To give God the thanks for this day
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
 Because God sent His son
 In a manger bed He lay
 Such a simple start
 Yet we celebrate this day
 Because that little babe
 Gave His life our debt to pay
 And now we’re born again
 If we follow in His way
  
 There’s a hush that fills the room
 As a little child says
 I want to follow Him
 Will you show me the way?
 And right there at the table
 Before the meal begins
 We pray the sinner’s prayer
 And that child has entered in
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
   

The Lord Said

The Lord said I am free
Why do I walk in bondage?
The Lord said I am healed
Why do I walk in sickness and pain?
The Lord said I am blessed
Why do I walk in poverty?
The Lord said I am saved
Why do I walk defeated?
The Lord said I have faith
Why do I walk in doubt?
The Lord said I have peace
Why do I walk in turmoil?
The Lord said I have joy
Why do I walk in sorrow?
The Lord said I have light
Why do I walk in darkness?
The Lord said He’s my friend
Why do I walk alone?
The said He’s the way
Why do I wander off?
The Lord said He’s the truth
Why do I believe a lie?
The Lord said He’s the life
Why do I walk in death
The Lord said He’s the Light
Why do I walk in darkness?
The Lord said He’s the Bread of Life
Why do I walk in need?
The Lord says He’s the resurrection
Why do I remain in the grave?
The Lord said He’s the Word made flesh
Why do I not believe?
 
He has told us all these things So we could walk in faith
Believing every word and not doubting what He said
Determine this In your heart to rejoice this very day
Because I have just told you what our Savior said
And you can know it’s true
Because Jesus loves you!

God Is Determined

God is determined to bless me
In ways that I can’t comprehend
I am determined to praise Him
I’ll give Him the best that I can

God is determined to heal me
He’ll take away all my pain
I am determined to love Him
I’ll worship again and again

God is determined to save me
From all of my troubles and storms
I am determined to fall down
I’ll take in the health that he forms

God is determined to guide me
Through all of the valleys I face
I am determined to follow
I’ll trust in His wonderful grace

God is determined to know me
He’ll speak to me every day
I am determined to know Him
I’ll hear His sweet voice and I’ll say

Jesus I love you with all of my heart
I love you with all of my mind
All of my soul I give to you
For you are my strength all the time

A Blessing For You

May the Lord be with you
May His face shine upon you
May His grace wash over you
May His presence abide within you
May His Spirit anoint you
May His mercy pursue you
May His peace instill calm in you
May His joy take sorrow from you
May His hope inspire you
May His patience quiet you
May His power embolden you
May His strength encourage you
May His glory instill awe in you
May His faith cast doubt from you
May His love surround you
Forever and ever
Amen

There are times we wonder why He would love us. Why would He die for us? Why would He have mercy on us? Why would He leave His wonderful throne of glory and come to this earth as a little babe in a lowly manger? Why would he endure the constant murmuring and ridicule of the Pharisees? Why would He allow Himself to be taken by Roman soldiers, beaten within inches of His life, and be delivered to a cross? Why did He not call legions down from heaven to save Himself? Why did He not fight back? Why did He not tell Pilate who He really was? Why did He not defend Himself against the false witnesses? So many questions. All of them answered by one simple fact. He loved us so much He was willing to give His life as a ransom for our sins. All to bless us!

Receive this blessing today on your life. As the Holy Spirit has given it to me, so I penned it for you this day. Know that He loves you more than you can possibly imagine and that He wants was best for you. Know that not matter what you are going through right now He will make it come out for good. Know that He will never leave you or forsake you. Know that he will speak to you in a still small voice every hour of every day. Know that everything is going to be okay and be blessed!

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

Our worries and fears
All on that wonderful cross
