This is one of my favorite songs.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The Answer to Fear

Do not be afraid. Matthew 28:10

Months after the September 11, 204101, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, psychiatrists reported that people who lived thousands of miles away from those tragic events were still coming to them, unable to sleep and paralyzed by fear. We live in a world shaken by fear, apprehension, and anxiety.
What is the answer to this stifling fear? After Jesus had been put to death, His disciples huddled in fear behind closed doors, filled with uncertainty and despair. But suddenly they found themselves in the presence of their living Lord, and at His first words their fears disappeared: "Peace to you" (Luke 24:36). The answer to our individual fears is found in a personal faith in the living,glorified Lord.
And the answer to collective fear is a corporate faith in the living, glorified Lord. The answer to national and international tensions and fears is for the world to know Him who is alive forevermore. We do not worship a dead Christ. We worship a risen Christ, who has broken the power of sin and death and Hell and is alive forevermore. Why then should we fear?

Life with a Capital L

The Son gives life to whom He will. John 5:21

The moment you come to Christ, the Spirit of God brings the life of God into you and you begin to live. For the first time you begin to live with a capital L. There's spring in your step, a joy in your soul, and a peace in your heart. Life has taken on a new outlook.
There's a whole new direction to your life, because now the Spirit of God has implanted you the very life of God, Himself, who is eternal. And that means you will live as long as God lives!
Too many Christians let themselves get bogged down by the cares and routines of daily living. Don't let that happen to you. Ask God to help you live each day with eternity in view.

Come Boldly

Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find.   Matthew 7:7

Children are not bashful about asking for things. They would not be normal if they did not boldly make their needs know.
God has said to His children, "Let us...come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need"(Heb. 4:16). God is keenly aware that we are dependent upon Him for life's necessities. It was for that reason that Jesus said, "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock; it will be opened to you" (Matt. 7:7)
    What is troubling you today? Is your heart burdened because of some problem that threatens to overcome you? Are you filled with anxiety and worry, wondering what will happen next? Listen-as a child of God through faith in Christ, you can turn these over to Christ, Knowing that He loves you and is able to help you. Don't carry your burden any loner, but bring it "boldly to the throne of grace"-and leave it there.

Mya and her car : )

This is Mya. She is 9. She came home when she was 13 month.She weighed only 11pounds. There were 11 families that didn't want her. When my Mom and Dad saw her they fell in love with her.Thank you God for bringing Mya in my life. Mya is a beautiful young girl. Mya have said this to me "I wish I had this car" I said you are to little to drive. She said " no I mean when I grow up when I have lots of money." I love how little ones talk about something they like or want.
