Here's a note I wrote in my bible a couple years back and I'd like to share it..."when you find yourself in a struggle, don't fight harder, submit more."

ďIN DOING WHAT WE OUGHT TO DO, WE DESERVE NO PRAISE.Ē


Live your life just as Jesus lived His! Because As He is, so are we in this world! (1 John 4:16-18)

God is Love...Imitate God...Any questions?


To live in pure "JOY"

put Jesus first in your life, Others second, and Yourself third.

From Anne Graham Lotz

They laid their hands on Him and took Him.

Mark 14:46, NKJV

The soldiers and officials who had come to the Garden of Gethsemane to arrest Jesus seized Him roughly, punching and manhandling Him as they bound Him. They bound the hands of the Son of God! The hands of the Creator! Hands that had lifted in authority and calmed the storm at sea. Hands that had gathered little children on His knee.

Have you ever felt bound . . .

in a marriage where the love has run out?

in a small home with small children?

in a physical body wracked with pain?

Are you struggling with your bindings? Do you find that the more you fight against them, the more pain you inflict on yourself, so that you are miserable in your confinement? Sometimes binding is in the will of God. Jesus was in the center of His Fatherís will, yet He was bound. He did not resist the tight cords or complain about His confinement. He simply submitted, not to the soldiers, but to His Fatherís will. Would you do the same?

There is nothing we can do to make God love us more; there is nothing we can do to make God love us less. -- Philip Yancey
