Straight and True

ireland crosses

“God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.  And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.  All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.  But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.” 

~John 3:17-21

Jesus is good, kind, wonderful, yes.  But He’s also a straight shooter; says it right out, plainly.  Who He is, why He came. But always with love, and out of love.   And I’m so thankful for that.  I love people who are honest yet kind.  When they speak you know there’s no pretense or falseness.  Speaking the truth with love.  Choose life, choose hope, choose Jesus.  Blessings, Lisa

The Light


“The Light”

The walls are rough, time has done what it does

But the Light is sure and steady

The window calls out through the hardness

Come to the Light

The Light warms and comforts and illuminates

Time cannot touch it.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  ~John 8:12

Light Over Darkness


“All of the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of one small candle.”  ~Unknown

Dark night, no moon, no stars, just blackness.  You feel as if nothing could cut the dark.  But as soon as someone lights one little candle, or pushes the switch on a flashlight, what was once dark is light.  Just like that.  Fear is gone, relief comes.  Light.  Hope.  Future.  Peace.  May God fill your heart and mind with His light today.  Lisa

“You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.” ~Psalm 18: 28

“In Your light we see light.”  ~Psalm 36:9b
