We’ve heard this question (or variants of it) a lot. Folks think they’ve committed the unpardonable sin and they’re afraid that God will never forgive them. Or they’ve committed deliberate sins and feel that they are beyond God’s mercy. We have one thing to say–stop believing Satan’s lies and trust in the promises explicitly stated in God’s Word.
Often we pray, and we don’t receive an obvious answer. What then? Should we just make our own decision? Should we wait until we have clear direction?
In this beautiful, broken, sin-stained world
Good and evil both exist
And moment by moment we must all choose
Which we’ll follow and which we’ll resist . . .

I haven’t posted here for a long time. To say that I miss Tim would be an understatement. My life has changed significantly since he’s been gone. I find it difficult to stay motivated. Tonight I felt strongly that I needed to get to work on the site again. So here goes. Here’s an article that Tim wrote a little over a year ago. I have many more.
Folks are also submitting poems and testimonies weekly. I’m so back-logged at this point that I really have no idea how I’ll ever catch up. I really don’t think I will. But anyway, here you go. Another article from Tim.
Jim Price sent us this very poignant and timely poem . . . so that we can remember that Jesus is no longer dead. He is alive. He is active. And what He did so long ago gives us heaven. We look forward to eternal life with Him forever. We need have no fear of death. Death has no power.
HE IS RISEN!
Mark sent this poem in the other day and because I’m lazy, I didn’t get it up on the website until just now. So here it is. May you enjoy it and may it help you remember Jesus’ great sacrifice.
He gave His life for us. It’s our reasonable service to give our lives completely — for Him.
Thank you Lanette for your first poem submitted to our site! It’s something I think about a lot. Do my children know the all-encompassing love of the Father? Do they realize that His love is deeper than mine? Do they understand that His love is eternal? My job, as their earthly father, is to help them develop their relationship with their heavenly Father.
Mike and Mark keep sending in thought-provoking and encouraging poetry. I have loads to publish — I’m just slow to do so. Pray for focus for me so I can get more poems posted, more testimonies posted, and more of Tim’s work posted. Thanks again for your poetry Mike. It’s much appreciated.
As I was posting this article today, I could literally hear Tim’s voice talking to me. I could see his face and I remembered his life. These words weren’t lip service for him. These words were him. He spoke them, displayed them, lived them.
If you’ve sinned too many times, if you’re feeling hopeless and that you’ve done too much for God to forgive, stop! Trust Him. Trust His promises. Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow. He wants us to return to Him, forsake our lives of sin then live out a life of faith in His Word.
Mark has been sending me inspirational poems for the last couple weeks. Pretty regularly, I’ll get a text with some inspired words sent for the purpose of encouraging me! And the words are coming at a time when I really need encouragement. It reminds me that a kindly-placed word carries much weight. Here’s one of his recent poems.
