My Imagined Jesus Speaks

I have imagined moments spent with Jesus and seeing his face.

Asking him questions. Seeking his advice. Getting his reactions. Watching him in various situations and circumstances.

So much of his ministry was not just his movement around Holy Land, it was his back-and-forth with the local leaders who didn’t like what he had to say.JamesSeward-PeaceBeStill

What Helps Me with Worry and Anxiety

You’re watching a ball role down a hill from the side. It’s a snowball and it’s tumbling down down down.

It’s not only tumbling down, it’s getting bigger and bigger as you descend down the hill watching this snowball not only increases in mass, but also in speed and momentum.

God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world.
