Wise Advice

To forgive someone means that you will never hold what they did against them... ever again.

You've got to let go of what's in your hand before God can fill it up with something better.

If you are purpose driven you will be right 100% of the time, emotionally driven... only 50%

God has really been working on me in the last week or so and satan has moved up from poking me with his finger to poking me with his pitch fork. Jerk.

Today was Phyllis's District Wide concert. It's the longest one but it's such a blessing. Man, there is some great talent out there! They sang "An Instrument of Peace" and I thought... let me be that. Rest in Him... peace will be there.

Isaiah 14:7 All the lands are at rest and at peace; they break into singing.

Where there is hatred, let me bring love

Where there is doubt, let me bring faith

Where there is falsehood, let me bring truth
Where there is pain, I'll comfort you

Where there is silence, let me sing praise
Where there's despair, let me bring hope

Where there is blindness, let me bring sight
Where there is darkness, let me bring light

And with these words I speak
Grant that I may not so seek
To be heard but to hear
To be consoled but to console,
Not to be seen, but to see
To be loved but to love

For when we give love we will receive

When we forgive love, we'll find reprieve
It is in dying we'll be released
Make me an instrument of peace
