A Better Country

 

Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind. C. S. Lewis

This morning I have written two poems. I pray this one causes you to consider the Better Country referred to in The Book of Hebrews.

A reflection on Hebrews 11-13…

When the Real Happy New Year Begins

I noticed someone had mentioned on my  Instagram yesterday that February was the start of the New Year for her. After the January 2016 I have experienced thus far this seems like a fabulous idea. However after further consideration while driving home from dropping off my 15 year old daughter at school, the mind of Christ in me spoke up.

Does anyone get those BIG epiphanies while driving, showering, in the middle of a conversation? It’s as if God taps you on the shoulder and says, “Ahem” in that gentlemanly way He has perfected. I find He never plows me over, but the magnitude of His revelations often do.

So as I drove the short ride that the school is from our little home, I felt my mind, heart and soul light up with truth. I think my car was glowing!

Life is a never-ending exploration of the mind, the spirit and the soul. ~Monique Moore

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. Jude 1:3

Forty Days ago we started a journey and now we come to the end…or do we? I wrapped up the week with Jude and one chapter of sobering reality is written there. I found myself digging into my Matthew Henry Commentary, something I rarely do. One thing I try to do is compare scripture with scripture, but a decent commentary can be a help on occasion. It can also be a hinderance if one is not careful. See, God’s Word is a perfect illuminator of God’s Word. I have wrestled long and hard with certain passages of Scripture. I believe it was and is God’s will that I do so. There are reasons specific passages leave us wondering. The reason being, ultimately, it should lead us smack dab into His presence.

The Simple Gospel (in Poem)

 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Romans 1:16
