Some Loves of Mine

Alexandria-Alexis-Alex-Ria-Lala tagged me. I'm to share with you some things I love. I've been tagged for things before, but I kind of like how this one doesn't have very many rules. So here, simply said, are some of my loves.

:: My Savior, Jesus. And telling others about Him.

:: People [watching]. Fascinating creatures that they are.

:: Taking your picture. And making you smile.

:: Baby [toes]. And everything else about them.

:: Seeing God at work. His Word and Spirit are ALIVE.

:: Driving Ambulances. Serious thrill issues, I know.

If you read this, and you blog, consider yourself tagged. :)

Couldn't Have Said it Better

I heard someone say the other day
They'd seen in me true love displayed
Blessed by something I had done for them
No sooner had they said these words
I found myself somehow discouraged
Uneasy as I took their compliment
Cause I know the heart inside this man
I know the truth of who I am...

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus
The only thing that's good in me is Jesus
I know me well enough to know
No matter what this life may show
The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

If you could walk the hallways of my heart

And see things as they really are

I wonder if you might be surprised
Seeing faded walls of pride and fear

Rooms I've filled with faithless tears
And corners where I've stood in compromise

But you'd see the work His grace has done
You'd know just how far I've come

In a thousand years
When the dust of this world clears
And I look back on my life
And see in perfect light

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

I know me well enough to know
No matter what this life may show

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

Sweet Home Sweet

Yes, thats where I am. Finally! Last week, my brother Jeb and I took off on a 1,500 mile venture towards home. We made it in good time and 2 days later I left for a week to be "camp nurse" at Good News Camp. Now, I am resting up and enjoying being home.
This last week in my Bible reading I read about God's call on Abram's life. I thought long and hard about the following verse.
Genesis 12:2
"And I will make of thee a great nation,
and I will bless thee, and make thy name

great and thou shalt be a blessing...
The Lord impressed on my heart this week at camp, that the greatest blessing is to be a blessing. And the biggest way to be a blessing is by sharing--in word and deed-- the gospel of Jesus Christ. And no matter how the people around me define success-- my aim should be to honor my Father by serving others for the sake of the Gospel. There is no greater call. And there is no greater blessing. The challenge comes when we are faced with the temptation to become self-righteous in our service. We must pray that our motives are to bless people- not to impress them. And yes, I struggle with this, but I think the more unaware we are of the impact we have on people, the easier it is for God to use us. Be willing to remain the peon.

I look forward to catching up with so many peeps from here at home and around the area -- but dear friends who I've left many miles behind me, please do stay in touch!!


Psalm 18:30 "As for God, His way is perfect..."
"Patience is more than endurance. A saint's life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says - "I cannot stand any more." God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly. Trust yourself in God's hands." - Oswald Chambers

Edit:: I posted the wrong rendition of this song before. This one's much better.


Sometimes love is the more difficult way,
but in the end... it is the more excellent way.

Lord, give me a love that is not circumstantial.
You for Your unconditional love towards me.

When I am faithless, He is faithful.
When mine fail, His plans prevail.
When I fail, His mercy endures.
Without Him, I am nothing.
