This day is yours.


A day in time.


We stumble over them all the time,

just waiting to get to the next one.

….and the next one…

….and the next one….

Until we realize

at the end of our lives

that each day counted

and that days weren’t meant to just

get through

and stumble through

on our way to tomorrow…

which then becomes today

on our way to tomorrow…


No, today is paramount

Yesterday is a whisper

Tomorrow is…


it is subject to what we do with today.




LIVE today

– Susie Stewart


Since everything here today might well be gone tomorrow, do you see how essential it is to live a holy life? Daily expect the Day of God, eager for its arrival. The galaxies will burn up and the elements melt down that day—but we’ll hardly notice. We’ll be looking the other way, ready for the promised new heavens and the promised new earth, all landscaped with righteousness.

– 2 Peter 3:11-13 (NLT)




He is the Word

He is the Life

He is the door

Why want for more?

He speaks truth

He is the Truth

He is the Way

He is Light

He is glory

He is might

Why stay in night?

He is Lion

He is Lamb

He is Shepherd

He is Creator

He is creative

He is passion

He is Bread

He is Water

He is Shelter

He encourages

He lifts

He washes clean

He is faithful Bridegroom

He is Mediator

He is Unifier

He is Advocate

He is Healer

He is Mercy in the morning

He is Vine

He is Master

He is Grace

He takes the yoke

He breaks the wall

He conquers fear

Why wait at all?

To know this One

To follow this One

To grasp for dear life to this ONE,

dear one.

Maybe because….

You fear

You rebel

You don’t trust

Because He looks weak

in those painted images

In your mind

In the media

He was a strong carpenter

He spoke with strength

He spoke with passion

He spoke the very words of God

He is God

He is strength

He conquered death

And will conquer that fear

of yours

that He is weak

and can’t handle what you’ve waded through

And will conquer your pride

that sets itself up

against the Maker of the Universe

And will conquer that wall

that is set just so

to keep abuse out

And will conquer that gap between you

as you run away from Him

in an attempt to live the way you want

He will catch up to you

He will find you

He will love you

He will change you

And there will be freedom for the captive

because of Jesus.

– Susie Stewart


To Know Him


I sit in the lobby of a grand hotel.

People walking past.

Eating, drinking, talking.

And I sit here alone.

Or so it seems.

I am not.

I am not alone.

I contemplate how people chase after this.

This comfort, this beauty, this luxury, this status.


And I know that I know that I know

that after all these years, what I really want

is not this.

What I want

is to know YOU.

To hear You.

To sense You.

To breathe in God.

To love You

The One who rains down love and mercy and grace on me.

The One who knows


And I know that I know that I know

That this world really has nothing for me.

Compared to You.

How can it be that I am free to love and be loved by my Creator?

To know You through Your written Word?

You have revealed Yourself to me!

And to all of the people in this room.

But do they know?

Do they know that Your eyes are ever on them?

That Your heart longs for them?

In the midst of all the activity and the splendor and the money

My spirit wants You.

And I know that I know that I know

That You are the only One who satisfies.

That knowing You

and loving You

is my greatest gift

My greatest treasure

My honor

And so I draw ever closer to You

as You draw ever closer to me

And I sit alone

Here in this lobby


But not.

– Susie Stewart

Everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.  For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all garbage, so that I could gain Christ.

– Philippians 3:8 (NLT)
