Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

He's A Good, Good Father

There are things in my life that I wish were different, and when I see others who have what I feel I'm missing, it brings to me feelings of sadness. Late yesterday was one of those times. I knew it was wrong to harbor those emotions of despair, so I tried to read some Scripture before I went to bed.
This morning, those feelings were still there when I woke up. Never the less, I thanked God for His love and mercy on my life, as I'm in the habit of doing each time I awake. I came down stairs, and noticed the bright pink sky outside. Grabbing my camera, I stepped out onto the porch and beheld this gorgeous sunrise.

Suddenly the song Good, Good Father, by Chris Tomlin, came to my spirit and I was singing it. As I continued to take pictures of this beautiful morning scene, God reminded me of His love, and goodness, and provision, in spite of my circumstances. He also brought to my mind this Scripture:
Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just, whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy,
meditate on these things.
The things which you learned and received
and heard and saw in me, these do,
and the God of peace will be with you. - Philippians 4:8-9
How I so appreciate my Heavenly Father, who knew what was bothering me, and brought this glorious sunrise to my attention, to remind me of how very much He loves me and cares for me. He is surely a good, good Father.
I feel much better now.
