Steadfast Love

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”

-- Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)

The steadfast love and faithfulness of God never stops.

Be Renewed

to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

-- Ephesians 4:22-24

We are new creations in Christ Jesus.

New Springs Forth

“Remember not the former things,
    nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert.

-- Isaiah 43:18-19 (ESV)

Let go of what’s behind, and look forward with God.

Not My Plans

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

-- Jeremiah 29:11

I make plans all the time, but I chose to yield those plans to God’s plan any day of the week… and often have to remind myself of that fact.

New

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

-- 2 Corinthians 5:17

Happy New Year! This is a great verse to kick things off.

Cultural Lies: Believe the Science

Cultural Lies #3

There’s this idea of finding yourself by looking within. It came up last time too about “following your heart.” It’s Who I Am. As long as I’m not hurting anyone… Many people base their identities (who they are) on their… Continue Reading →

Cultural Lies #2

My _________, My Choice Again, this idea of choice isn’t new! It started in the beginning, and the only time we ever truly had a choice was during the time before The Fall. After that, we have no choice by… Continue Reading →

Cultural Lies #1

“The best lies always have a bit of truth in them.” The whole idea of tackling these lies is two-fold: Become more aware of what lies I ascribe to – even in part – without really realizing it. Be equipped… Continue Reading →

Grieving

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring… Continue Reading →
