Come To Jesus
Isn’t there more to life?
Is this all there is?
Imprisoned by our need for control,
trapped by insatiable desires
for worldly pleasures,
we are oppressed by our desperate hunger
for approval and love
from everyone
except the One who loves us most.
Straining, fighting to release
a familiar yet unknown burden,
we struggle to flee the tension, the stress
from the inner knowing
that our lives are incomplete
without Him who created us.
Parched, thirsting for more, more, more
of something we can’t even define,
racing in the wrong direction,
we search everywhere
except the one place
where what we really want
can actually be found.
Turn around.
Come to Jesus.
He is hope;
He is joy;
He is freedom,
direction, and purpose.
Come to Jesus.
Let Him carry your burdens.
Surrender your pain to His love.
Turn from darkness to the Son,
to the beacon Who will always light your way.
Come to Jesus.
He is waiting...
waiting to lead you home.

We Need You, Lord
We need you, Lord.
Like lost wanderers in a burning, empty desert
thirst for cool, clean water,
we long for you to quench us.
In a world gone progressively mad,
with chaos all around us,
we seek refuge in the order and purpose of your law.
With evil sneaking, leaking everywhere,
spreading heavy darkness,
creating feelings of emptiness,
we hunger for your goodness and light.
Turn us around, Lord, we pray;
retrieve your sheep who have gone astray.
Draw us to the satisfaction
of your purity and righteousness.
Cleanse us, and make us more like you,
role models, examples, beacons,
for others who are searching for meaning for their lives.
Come, Lord Jesus.
We need you, Lord.
Matthew 5:16
Proverbs 4:18

To Do List From God
I ran my life in search of worldly things;
My time and will were firmly in control.
I thought I had no need for what God brings;
I gave no heed to murmurs from my soul.
“You’re planning, doing all the time,” it said,
“But something else is missing deep inside.
Your mind is whirling, but your heart is dead,
So turn to God and let go of your pride.”
I did, and God said, “Here’s My plan for you:
Give your life to Me, and just let go.
Have faith and pray, and read the Bible through,
And you’ll have blessings more than you can know.”
So simple, yet it brings me perfect peace,
Living life for God the way I should.
Direction, purpose, fullness and release—
Life with God is very, very good.

I talk to everyone. All the time.
The question is not to whom do I talk,
but who listens.

All people are special
and all moments are golden.
There is no person, there is no time
one more special than another.
I invite you to a new form
of communication with Me
A two way communication
In truth, it is you who invited Me
For I've come to you in this form
right now, in answer to your call.

This is far from My only tool.
You may ask a question and put this down
but watch, listen...
The words to the next song you hear
The information in the next article you read
The storyline of the next movie you watch
The chance utterance of the next person
you meet
Or the whisper of the next river,
the next ocean, the next breeze
that caresses your ear
I will speak to you, if you will listen.

Let all those who have ears to hear, listen...
For I tell you this:
At the critcal juncture in all human relationships,
there is only one question:
What would Love do now?
No other question is relevant.
No other question is meaningful.
No other question has any importance
to your soul.
What would Love do now.

The highest thought...
Is always that thought which contains joy
The clearest words...
Are those words which contain truth.
The grandest feeling...
Is that feeling which you call love.
Joy. Truth. Love.

You, now a Disciple, is such a messenger.
Keep on deciding what you want to become
in the next highest version of yourself...
Keep on working toward that.
Keep on. Keep on.
This is God work we're up to, you and I...
So keep on!

Taken from here

May it inspire you, Take care!
