Drifting away,

aimless and directionless


It’s where you will be

unless you actively seek Christ


And on the waves of this life,

the ups and downs


We don’t want to be drifters


We ought to be active in those waves


Seeking Truth on purpose

Loving God on purpose

Caring for people on purpose

Walking in integrity on purpose

Sharing Christ on purpose

Avoiding sin on purpose

Living out our faith on purpose




It’s a word that God

keeps bringing me back to lately


As if maybe He’s doing it

on purpose?

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.

– Luke 10:27 (NIV)


That you love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and muscle and intelligence—and that you love your neighbor as well as you do yourself.

– Luke 10:27 (MSG)


Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.

– Romans 12:2 (NIV)


…pray continually…

– 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NIV)

Beyond Me


I’m thinking today

about the beyond


The beyond of what you did, Jesus,

from what I read about You


For the Bible says that the world

wouldn’t be able to contain


all the books written


if they were filled

with everything you did


And I long to glimpse

into that beyond


To see all the lives touched

all the words said

all the love given

the mercy

the miracles


I just want to know more of You


And I long to dive

into all those books that weren’t written


The beyond is unknown


But I am blessed


With a God who continues

to make Yourself known to me


In countless ways


And You’ve given us all the written Words

that are needed


for now


But one day I’ll know in glory

about that beyond



– Susie Stewart


Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.

– John 21:25 (NLT)


By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the one who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence.

– 2 Peter 1:3 (NLT)


Don’t suppose for a minute that I have come to demolish the Scriptures—either God’s Law or the Prophets. I’m not here to demolish but to complete. I am going to put it all together, pull it all together in a vast panorama. God’s Law is more real and lasting than the stars in the sky and the ground at your feet. Long after stars burn out and earth wears out, God’s Law will be alive and working.

– Matthew 5:17, 18 (MSG)
