Sometimes life seems to overwhelm us with problems. It’s easy to wonder why. It’s important, in such situations, to remember where our help comes from. We need to consistently and persistently seek God no matter what life may bring.
Liz James lived a quiet life. But she lived a meaningful life–a life lived out in service to others. Long alone, she suffered through many disappointments and sorrows but her faith stayed strong. Would our faith remain strong in such circumstances? Tim’s poem was written in memory of the life of Liz James. Click the link below to read it.
Sometimes, even after we taste the goodness of God, we go our own way. It doesn’t make sense. It’s confounding behavior. But we still do it. Thankfully, the God we serve is a compassionate God, full of grace and mercy. He waits for us to return to Him. He waits with open arms. He calls us to Him. He gives us every reason to come back. But ultimately, the choice is ours. What will we choose? Life? Or death? Elizabeth chose life. What will you choose?

Bryan tells the story of how God molded him into the man God wanted him to be.
Here’s an excerpt from Bryan’s testimony . . . this was a major turning point in his life.
. . . Frantically, I reached out for help but my hand didn’t get above the water and the river was too murky to see anything. I couldn’t determine where I was from the surface. In what seemed to be forever but in all actuality was just a few seconds, I began to realize that I was drowning. My life started to flash through my mind in scenes. I saw my wife and parents and thought about how they would manage without me. I thought about how devastated they would be.
Jesus cares for us. He gives us life and hope and he directs our paths. Two Christian poems.
Choose life, that you might live. The life He gives, He gives forever. A poem.
We all have a simple choice: we can choose life or we can choose death. God suggests (and I agree with Him) that we choose life.
He alone can provide peace. It’s up to you whether or not you want to experience it.
This poem reminds us that our job is to submit to His will and remain faithful ’til the end.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what God’s thinking. Our lives seem full of needless suffering and pain. We do all we can to please Him . . . yet, life remains hard. We don’t understand.
This poem reflects on God’s sovereignty as He guides and directs our lives. Our job is simply to submit to His will and remain faithful ’til the end.
A poem that speaks of the wonders of God’s Word. Is it gathering dust on your shelf?
It’s easy to let our Bible sit on the shelf and gather dust. I’ve been guilty of it.
But God’s Word contains life; it contains the message that God has for you and me. It tells of creation, the reason for living and the end of things.
Take some time to read it today and every day.
The Dusty Old Book (a poem by Belinda)
This poem reminds us of the heavy debt Jesus paid for us. He gave His life so we could be free of sin’s bondage.
This poem was recently (well, not so recently; I’ve been busy and my computer’s been in the shop) submitted to us. It’s a beautiful reminder of the debt that Jesus paid for us. He gave His life. He paid for our sins. He paid the debt that we owe.
As life ebbed from the two thieves, they took radically different paths. One chose life, the other death. Which will you choose?
Have you given any thought to what it must have been like for Jesus to watch the two thieves, as He hung on the cross? The thieves paint a perfect picture of us; one chose life, and the other chose death.
Just like them, we have a choice. We can choose to follow Jesus, and accept the invitation to His eternal party, or we can reject Him and choose never-ending suffering.
The choice seems easy to me.
