Jesus Christ, Light of the World
You never did forget me
and when i bled in darkness,
You held me, still held me
when disparate nights i cursed You
You loved me, still loved me
Jesus Christ, You dry the tears
You break my heart of stone
Your words are life
cut marrow through
the darkness, to the bone
a heart of flesh You gave me
only You can save me

I am coming home

If you were a youthworker, you would understand. If you ever get that annoying teen that likes to shoot rubber bands at you, pull this thing out and make them sorry.

Liar Liar

Saw this slice of news on Relevant Magazine's Website:

According to this story, the average person tells 88,000 lies in their lifetime. The most common lie: "There's nothing wrong with me ... I'm fine." Other favorites are, "Nice to see you," "Sorry I missed your call," "I'm stuck in traffic" and "Our server was down" ...

Now that I think of it, the first 3 I struggle with all the time! How about you?

Politics and Jesus

I've been following the news lately and everyone seems to be a buzz about the upcoming primaries and presidential election. This has got me thinking about who I am going to vote for and what exactly a Christian's role should be in politics.

So here are a few questions for all of you:
  • As a Christian, is it our responsibility to vote?
  • Would Jesus vote?
  • What candidate would you vote for and why? I'm looking for specific issues and not things like personality or likability.

Happy New Year

To all my family and friends, I hope this year will be a year full of adventure, blessing, and hope.

There is something about the holiday cycle that always seems to leave me with a hangover of sorts (no, not that kind of hangover). I crawl out of my bed on January 1st (at 2pm... thank you youth all-nighters!) and feel like I have shed my skin. Everything seems to be new with a whole 365 days ahead. And the questions, predictions, and thoughts of the future are intriguing.

So... any predictions or resolutions for the upcoming year? For me, I want to better understand God's love for me this year (resolution). As for predictions... I just hope that this isn't the year the whole world goes to pot. I always look forward to new tech. Perhaps I'll finally make the switch to Mac. We will see :)
