ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Our lives are like a thin, frayed thread,

Our thoughts are filled with fear and dread,

The tines of life like wildfire spread,

We even wish that we were dead,

Yet God would not release His hold,

He held us tightly in the fold,

To teach us to be strong and bold,

He never let His love grow cold,

He will not let us go.

His roots run deep, His hold is strong,

He keeps us where we now belong,

He turns us right when we do wrong,

His Word is like a lovely song,

He pulls us out of danger’s way,

He gives us light in each dark day,

He leads us back when we would stray,

He even teaches us to pray,

He will not let us go.17322cb922c1e3c7c944bacdd8b5d89f

Is the Cumulative Evidence for Christianity Strong or Weak?

From Bruce at Reasoned Cases for Christ

My comment:

Bruce thanks for this great collection of links. Of course, there is much very compelling evidence for Christianity being true; however, as you said, in the end, it is about our hearts and faith. No amount of logic will ever convince a person who refuses to believe to believe. We as believers also ought not to be ashamed that, in the end, our faith is just that….faith. God loves faith. If He loves it, then that is good enough for me.


From the post:

The links below are some of the informational links that are available on the Internet which support the strong cumulative evidence for Christianity. However, before you check them out I think it is prudent to make a quote from J. Warner Wallace’s book entitled Cold Case Christianity with regard to the bias that all of us have.

“Make no mistake about it, all of us have a point of view; all of us hold opinions and ideas that color the way we see the world. Anyone who tells you that he (or she) is completely objective and devoid of presuppositions has another more important problem: that person is either astonishingly naive or a liar.”

What that means for me is that someone who, in his/her heart, fundamentally hates God or refuses to accept the possibility of His existence, and/or does not earnestly seek to know Him, is not going to be persuaded by mountains of evidence and reasoning, however cogently presented. I am not saying that faith is unreasonable or that the Christian faith, in particular, is irrational. Nor am I saying that evidence and rational argumentation are without purpose. Surely reason plays a necessary role in every conversion. But non-believers are fundamentally biased because they refuse to acknowledge the possibility of the existence of God and have either decided to actively or inactively pursue or hold that bias. Conversely, the worldview of those of us who hold onto the belief and trust in the finished work of Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, on the cross for our redemption, hold a different worldview and have accordingly decided to pursue a different bias.

A DANGEROUS ROAD

From Kathy at A Time to Share.

More great artwork and poetry from Paul and Kathy Boecher.


From the post:

We travel the highway of life, depending upon the road,

Some trails have been blazed before us, as others their burdens towed.

Yet there are still roads untraveled, paths filled with trials unknown,

A bridge that cannot be walked on, a trail we’d rather postpone,

The thorns that pierce through shoe leather, the vines that wrap round your feet,

Obstacles laid out before you, seem difficult to complete,

Teasing…

From Vwoods 1212.

Good thing to think about here. How much do we miss out on because God awaits us?


From the post:

God : hides from us sometimes…

James 4:8 (KJV) “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”

I think what I am about to describe is a place where we all have been at some point in our Christian walk. We decide to commit to the relationship and enter into a realm never experience in our lives.

Waiting

From Becky at A Christian Worldview of Fiction.

Becky said, “God is using this time to bring in those who will sit at His banqueting table. And He’s using us to get all the invites out.

What a great point that is. Of course, God wants us to study His Word, and learn it; but, I think sometimes we get so bogged down in the specifics of the future that we forget we still have a very important mission to accomplish in the here and now.


From the post:

When I was little I remember waiting . . . a lot. I remember waiting for my mom when we went shopping. I remember waiting for my birthday, which was hard. I mean, my sister had a birthday, and then four days later, my brother had a birthday. Mine? I had to wait another seven-plus months. Then there was Christmas. As soon as it was over, I remember waiting for the next one. I wanted one of those count-down calendars in the worst way. Anything to make the time seem like it was going.

Oh, and then there were the trips. We took a lot of car trips as a family. And I was one to ask with some frequency, are we there yet? I took up map reading as a way to answer my own question because I could tell, my parents were getting tired of it.

Is God the true God? What about other gods?

From Michael at Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts.


From the post:

We live in world of covetousness and idolatry. Money, self-indulgence, hedonism, materialism, agnosticism and atheism reign. I am regularly asked about why my god is god. What about other gods?

So here is some elementary theology for atheists and agnostics. What is the difference between gods (1000s) and God (only one)? God is a single, non-physical, all-powerful, creative Being from outside space & time. All the gods are human-like manifestations of human imagination with some magical powers.

The Lord Bless You And Keep You …

From Charlie at Learning From God’s Word. Charlie writes great short devotionals and thoughts; go check his place out.


From the post:

Numbers 6:22-27

There’s nothing better than God’s blessing. It’s nice to have friends. People like you. It feels good. God’s blessing – That’s so much better. Friends come and go. God’s blessing remains. You can be surrounded by friends – and still feel very lonely. Sometimes, they’re great friends. Sometimes, they disappoint us. When you’re surrounded by God’s blessing, everything’s very different. God will never disappoint us. He’s our “always and forever” Friend. His blessing is an “every day” blessing. It’s not just a “now and again” thing. It’s an “all the days of our life” thing. Everywhere we look, we see God. We look to the hills. We see our Creator. We look to the Cross. We see our Saviour. We are blessed by our Creator. We are blessed by our Saviour.
How do we enjoy God’s blessing?

Bible Verses with Lessons about Trees

From Heather at Room to Breathe. God sure uses trees as a tool for comparison often!


  • 1 Chronicles 16:33 CSB
    Then the trees of the forest will shout for joy before the Lord,
    for he is coming to judge the earth.
  • Job 14:7-9 CSB
    There is hope for a tree:
    If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
    and its shoots will not die.
    If its roots grow old in the ground
    and its stump starts to die in the soil,
    the scent of water makes it thrive
    and produce twigs like a sapling.
  • Psalm 1:1-3 CSB
    How happy is the one who does not
    walk in the advice of the wicked
    or stand in the pathway with sinners
    or sit in the company of mockers!
    Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
    and he meditates on it day and night.
    He is like a tree planted beside flowing streams[a]
    that bears its fruit in its season
    and whose leaf does not wither.
    Whatever he does prospers.
