who told you that lie?

 who told you that lie?

that you aren't good enough.

that you're not worthy.

that you'll never amount to anything.

who told you that your failures are final.

that your mistakes can't be overcome.

that your life is over.

who told you that no one could love you.

that you're worthless.

that you're beyond saving.

i don't know who told you those lies but they're wrong.

you are good enough.

you are worthy.

you have value.

the Bible is full of people who had the same lies told about them.

cheaters, murderers, adulterers, prostitutes, thieves.

names the world called them.

names the world determined they would always be.

names they had earned but names they didn't have to keep.

because God had the final say. and He said the world was wrong.

about them and about you.

because God isn't concerned with your past, He's concerned with your future.

He's not interested in where you've been, He's interested in where you're going.

He doesn't care who you were, He cares about who you can be.

cheaters, murderers, adulterers, prostitutes, thieves.

Moses was a murderer.
Abraham was a liar.
Jacob was a thief.
David was an adulterer.
Rahab was a prostitute.

lives the world believed would amount to nothing

lives God used to bring about His glory.

the world will be quick to remind you of what you've done wrong.

the world will be quick to point out your flaws.

but quit listening to what the world says.

God sent Jesus to overcome your sins.

His blood paid the price for your failures.

don't listen to the lies of the devil, learn the promises of God.

because who you used to be will never compare to who you can be with Him.

God took my mom

God took my mom.  When I was 6 years old and knew nothing about life.  Before I had a chance to know her. Long before I would have a way to remember her.  He took her.  And I grew up never having a mother. If God can see all, if God knows all, if God is in control...did He not think I would want a mom?  Or deserved a mom?  Or needed a mom?  Did He not care how painful it would be? Did He not care how awful it would feel?  Did He not care about me at all? Because I thought when you loved someone you wanted the best for them. You sacrificed for them. You made sure you did everything in your power to help them. And it didn't feel like God helped me. It felt like He punished me. And I had no idea why.  I just knew I hated it.  And there were moments that I hated Him.  When you're little, no one comes up to you and tells you it's going to be ok.  Most don't come up to you at all.  Because people shrink from talking about death.  They don't know what to say so they don

A Prayer for our Nation

Father, I pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, for all who are in authority in this nation. I ask for Godly counsel and wisdom for the President and his Cabinet, Chief Justice, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court and all judges across this land.  Thank you for restoring to our nation righteous judges who hear Your voice and adhere to Your Word (Isaiah 1:26). We lift up the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and all other leaders at every level of our government to receive the wisdom of God, to act in obedience to that wisdom, and for the power of God to flow in their lives.  I declare that they hear and obey Your voice, Lord, and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. Lord, I pray that righteousness be manifest in the hearts of all in authority in our nation, and that they seek after You with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength. In the Name of Jesus.  Amen. (Prayer from Kenneth Copela
