Obedience demonstrates our faith and trust in God; Obedience is the key to our success; Obedience is the sure and promised way for unlocking blessings for our lives. For us to be able to fully obey, we must read His word every day and ask God to empower us with His holy spirit so that our life is going to honour Him.

Do You Need to Repent? show art Do You Need to Repent?

Speak Life Church

The repentance (metanoia) called for throughout the Bible is a summons to a personal, absolute and ultimate unconditional surrender to God as Sovereign. Though it includes sorrow and regret, it is more than that. ... In repenting, one makes a complete change of direction (180° turn) toward God.

Sorrow looks back

Worry looks around

Faith looks up.

 

In my 59 years of life I have fought people, ideals, crime, poverty, depression, oppression, racism, sexism, doubt, insecurity, fear, unbelief, mental, physical and spiritual illness and sin of all kinds 

I have the wrinkles, moles and scars to prove it.  

I have never cried so much this year that I can remember.  I have learned about myself and my God. And I want to share some of it with you.  

This week my wife returns home from rehab after the removal of a brain tumor almost the size of a grapefruit.  The surgery was worse than the tumor.  She is like a stroke victim trying to regain herself.  She cannot walk talk or eat.  Her throat muscles have forgotten how to work.  She has a feeding tube in her stomach.  She is coming home because she has outstayed the length of time our insurance has.  And the so called therapy she was supposed to get was lacking to me.  I will add the occupation of  caregiver, speech, occupational and physical therapist to my resume starting Monday.  

 

I am going to do this and going to do it well.  I know God has built me for this.

 

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father

There is no shadow of turning with Thee

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be

Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

 

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

    where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

    the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1 

 

Jesus looked up

John 17:1 he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,

 

Stephen looked up

Acts 7:55-56: But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

 

I go to prepare a place for you,” said our Lord. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14:3).

If it were not so, I would have told you.

Jesus said that. I believe Him.

I choose to believe.

Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,

And my will be lost in Thine.
