return

To those who have walked away
To those who thought they had a better plan
To those who are happy in their sin
To those who chose not to believe
to those…

God is still there
God is still waiting
God is still calling
God has not changed
God has forgiven

He died for you
He bled for you
He came back for you

He loves
He waits
He longs
for your return

today i pray for those

STOP

STOP

the day between

the day of contemplation

the day to look

on the past & reconcile

with

WHAT

JUST

HAPPENED

the day of realization

my sin put my God

on a cross

He died

in order that

we could be together

we could have life

we could

L I V E

do not throw it away

d o  n o t  p u t  i t  o n  a  s h e l f

do not hide this gift

share it

as we share it

it grows

it is living

it is breathing

from a living breathing God

He loved us first

F I R S T

while we were lost

while we were sinning

so we could

L O V E

more fully

more abundantly

more gracefully

GO


Psalm 20

A prayer for my friends and family and all those afar. i don’t think that there are any words that could be added to David’s, so the text will speak for my prayer today…

monday

It is a sad week here in our small town. 2 awesome young men, fathers, mentors, husbands, friends, were taken from this earth to their heavenly homes on Sunday, April 6. Their families grieve for the loss. Their friends weep. Their children’s hearts shattered. Their loss impacts many here and around the world.

So many losses in this past month. Senseless death. Heartbreak. Sorrow. So many communities grieving. The only one who can console is our loving heavenly Father. Only He can relate. Only He can heal. Only He can help us continue without these who have influenced, encouraged, loved, and etched their memories into our hearts. Only He can make us whole again. And yet, we will never be completely whole until we are joined together in heaven again.

Today i pray for the families, the communities, the ones who are lost and wandering. i pray for comfort, for friends, for healing, for peace. the marks that they carved into our souls will be ever present, the lives they have left will not be forgotten, but the mourning will last for a time. i pray that there are moments of joy in their grief and comfort thru their tears. there are no words that could ever make it ok, but i pray for love, peace, and comfort to surround each one and that they would find their rest in the One who knows the beginning from the end and the heartache of loss.

In loving memory of Pastor Tyler Liljekvist and Coach Chris Prewitt, who both wore more hats than can be listed and both affected lives around the world. May God keep their families and strengthen them thru the fire and on the journey ahead.
