Right to Counsel

Right to CounselThe Sixth Amendment of the United States grants it citizens the right to counsel; someone to plead on their behalf. Believers have this same right except that this “lawyer” is someone with much more authority. Moreover, what better person to intercede on our behalf, than someone who has already walked down this path? We have a map (the bible) to guide us on our everyday journey, but for those moments when we get off track we have heavenly help, we have JESUS!

Whom have I in heaven but you? (Psalm 73:25a NLT)

Be Still

A Promise is a Promise

A promise is a promise

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been hearing about Christ’s return. To be honest, I’ve often wondered about this because it seems like a long time to be waiting. Yet, He promised to return in John 14:3.Today’s passage reminds us that God hasn’t forgotten about us, like many would think, but that He’s trying to save as many people as possible. All around us we see the signs of the times, and if these things are coming to pass, what’s to say that the return of Christ won’t?

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. (2 Peter 3:9 NLT)


Life, like algebra, is tough
I can’t wrap my head around this identity stuff

Whoever said it was easy must’ve had it all figured out
This is challenging without a doubt.

I’m finding it difficult to fit in
Feeling like a variable, changing with the equation

Getting pulled from every angle
Trying not to get entangled

But everyone wants a piece of the action
And there are so many distractions
I’ve been reduced to a simple fraction
Can’t get a grip, no traction
Satisfaction seems to be the main attraction
But death is the price to pay for this transaction

“Just go with the flow”
That’s the name of the show
That goes against the status quo

Everybody wants to be themselves
While imitating someone else

Nobody wants to grow their own spine
Child please, ain’t nobody got time
For most it’s just a punch line

Society has lost something that’s priceless
And this is far more terrifying than ISIS
Society is in the midst of an identity crisis

It’s who I am not what I wear
It’s who I represent not how I set my hair

It’s conviction even when it’s not the popular opinion
It’s being that one in a billion

It’s like that puzzle piece that doesn’t fit
It’s not being the variable and embracing it

It’s difficult; it’s how I live not what I say
It’s making a conscious effort every minute of every day

I found mine in His
I don’t have an identity crisis
Want to know my identity?
Christ is

Author of my story

Just what I needed 

Sometimes things don’t go as expected, but that doesn’t mean it not what we need.  

Need a moment?
