There is no greater love. There is no higher love than this!

There is, no greater love
There is, no higher love than this

Because of Your love
Hallelujah, I’m forgiven
The shadow has been lifted
You rescued me

I am Yours
And You are mine

How to find everything…

Proverbs 2:1-11 if you will receive my words and treasure my commandments within you, make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding; if you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will discern the fear of the LORD and discover the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice, and He preserves the way of His godly ones. Then you will discern righteousness and justice and equity and every good course. For wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; Discretion will guard you, understanding will watch over you.

What does it mean to me… EVERYTHING!

Written by me J.L. Russell February 24, 2012

The cross means so many things on earth

For Jesus it was something He was nailed to

To save us from our sins

For us it’s a symbol of where Jesus was crucified

It was where He took His last breath, it’s where He died

We wear it around our necks; it’s on our cars and other places

What does it really mean to you, my friend?

Do you wear it proudly or are you ashamed of the cross

Do you let others know you love Him with all your heart

Or do you keep it inside, hiding it, scared of their thoughts

Don’t just wear it, spread His love to others

Don’t keep it hidden inside

Tell others the love He has for them

Don’t be ashamed of the cross or Jesus, my friend

You wouldn’t want to receive the same from Him

He loved you so much He died for you

Let others know how you have grown within

And what the cross really means

It was where Jesus died but it can also save us from our sin


What does it mean to me… Forgiveness, Grace, Mercy, Love, Redemption, Set free, Shelter, Victory, Trust, Changed, Faith, A glorious unfolding, The way, The truth, The life, LOVE and much, much, more!

I’m finding beauty for the first time. Looking through my Father’s eyes…

We all have a story behind us, a life story, if were lucky enough to be one of the few, we have mostly a good story, but there are those whose life story can be totally different.

Their life story may be one of always struggling, always trying to get ahead but never seem to get there.

Then there are those whose life story would bring tears to our eyes and break our heart, some of them still reliving those things when something later in life brings the memories back.

There are those whose life story is one heart break after the next, never feeling like they will find the right one to be with or they have lost people who they dearly love, one right after another.

Unless you really know as person and know everything about them, you truly don’t know their life story.

I’ve had a life of pain, heartbreak, stress and many other things, but I also have had joy in my life.

When I gave my life to the Lord I found out what true love, true forgiveness, and true mercy really is. Even though I have been through much, I now know God is and will always be there for me. Yes, we all have a life story, and every day I know mine will only get better, as long as I keep my heart and mind on the most important thing in this life, GOD!

Deuteronomy 6:5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
