Delight yourself in the Lord and
He will give you the desires of your heart.

But seek His kingdom, and these
things will be given to you as well.

Psalm 37:4; Luke 12:31

The goal

Forgetting what is behind and
straining on toward what is ahead,

I press on toward the goal
to win the prize for which God has
called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Our citizenship is in heaven.
Philippians 3: 13b-14, 20

Love must be…

Love must be sincere.
Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
Honor one another above yourselves.
Never be lacking in zeal,
but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Share with God’s people who are in need.
Practice hospitality.
Romans 12: 9-13



I was cleaning out a filing cabinet and found a small spiral-bound book of index cards which I had bought back in 2000 to write down bible passages that “spoke” to me. I only wrote down a handful before that habit fell to the wayside, but I thought it would be nice to revisit them in the coming weeks.

And hope does not disappoint us,
because God has poured out

His love onto our hearts by the
Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

Romans 5:5
