He Will Faithful

Faithful to complete it.

A missing petal reveals room for new growth.
Rest assured, God will not abandon the
work of His hands.
He will be faithful to complete the good work
He started in you.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you,
will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when
Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6 NLT


The truth is, every follower of Jesus is a work in progress. We all have
areas in our lives that need the grace of God to change us into the image
of the One who gave His life for us. And He has promised us that He will.

I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue
His work until it is 
finally finished on the day  when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians 1:6 NLT











Peace With God


Made right with God by faith in Jesus—

Peace with God through the blood of His son,

A place to stand in undeserved privilege,

Waiting for the glory of His second return.


Easter Reflections from Romans 5

When Second Causes Fade

first light

This is from me, a time planned long ago;
purposed, for good
not for harm.
Eyes opening,
second causes fading…
when you see me in everything.

 This is from me, a place purposed long ago;
waiting hearts full
Ears opening,
and my will embracing…
when you see me in everything. 

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good,
To those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28). 







The Bonus Years


Whitest snow dusting trees like
powdered sugar frosting the earth. 
My gift to you this day.
These are the bonus years.
Trust me, let go of
your grip of lesser things.
Take my hand and
walk with meone step at a time.

You need not fear life’s changing seasons.
I’m already there, waiting for you.
Are you coming?
There are many things
I’ve yet to show you.
Many miles you’ve yet to travel,
Many roads to walk with me,
Many joys yet to know.

These are the bonus years.
The best lies just beyond the open door,
where hearts respond to Spirit’s call,
and Jesus bids us follow.
Lay your head on my shoulder,
and lean hard on me.
Rejoice. Let Go. Let God.
Take my hand, I’ll lead you home.

You make known to me the path of life;  you will fill me with joy 
in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11
