Coming Before the Throne

Before the Throne

At Heaven’s gate

Trying to write, but I am so uninspired and sleepy.
Trying to pray for a good friend who has terminal cancer, but I am so lifeless in prayer.
Trying to live for my Lord, but I am so weak and easily tripped up.
How wonderful is my great high priest who sits enthroned at the right hand of God.

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:14-16

My soul soars to His mercy seat and I fall before Him in thanksgiving.

Learning to Fly

The joy of flying

The joy of flying


Anger consumes my mind letting nothing else in.
Holding a grudge takes over allowing only thoughts of getting back.
Wanting to see someone hurt because I have been hurt, only keeps the wound open.
My life crippled from pain, yet I want to cause more pain.
Like a cancer, anger spreads and takes over.
It destroys joy. It gives me a heart of stone. It slowly strangles life.
Thank you, Lord, for forgiveness.
When I forgive, it lets me move on, it lets me fly again.

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. (Matthew 6:12-13)

The merciful man does himself good,
But the cruel man does himself harm. (Proverbs 11:17)
