Not Good Enough?

I am still searching out this guilt, shame, condemnation, freedom, righteousness, grace thing. Can I tell you I am still learning this whole “God” thing, what He really says, and what He really means. This post helped me a lot today:

Is the Holy Spirit really the “Fault Finder” or Accuser of Brethren?

I woke up with these words running in my head:

Now I know that is not from God,

that is NOT what God says to me.  

That is what someone else has told me,

and it is NOT TRUE!  

Help us Lord, with your Holy Spirit, to understand You and Your ways. Lord, let us take every thought captive and subject it to YOUR WORD.  I reject those words “not good enough”.  Let them fall to the ground like dust.  Thank you for the sword of your Spirit – the Word of God – that helps me to know what is true and what is false. I thank you that we can know the Truth and the Truth will set us FREE!

This is what I’m putting on – how about You?

I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10 NIV)


What’s that?


“I believe in the sun, even when it isn’t shining.   I believe in love, even when I am alone.   I believe in God, even when He is silent.”   

My father-in-law sent me this today – thanks Dad!     

A nurse on the pediatric ward, before listening to the little ones’ chests, would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to their own heart. Their eyes would always light up with awe, but she never got a response equal to four-year old David’s comment. Gently she tucked the stethoscope into his ears and placed the disk over his heart. ‘Listen’, she said…’What do you suppose that is?’ He drew his eyebrows together in a puzzled line and looked up as if lost in the mystery of the strange tap – tap – tapping deep in his chest. Then his face broke out in a wondrous grin and he asked,

‘Is that Jesus knocking?’

  • I will send a pingback to your regular blog, so that others may follow you there as well.

  • Please include 1 picture (with the source if it is not yours) for your post.

  • Each story will get its own post.

Let Our Praises Rise



BY Ramey Whalen

My voice is the sound of a thousand bells
Hear me nations, *hear* Israel
My song is the water of the purest well
Hear me heaven, fear me hell
My dance carries thunder from the throne of Yah
Look at me, and know He is GOD!
Let our praises rise like a weapon in Your hand
Let our praises rise O God
Let our praises rise like a weapon in Your hand
Let our praises rise O God
My hands hold the cure for every disease
They’re covered in blood and oil and leaves
My laughter and tears create things unseen
Atmosphere changes, God released
My worship is armed with spirit and truth
Sacred, accepted, pleasing to You
God of eternity, wonders and majesty
God of creation, ancient, alive in me
God of all nations, uncharted galaxies
God who is Spirit, alive in me
