A new heart

“There is a widespread belief in the church, today, that the heart is desperately wicked – even after a person comes to Christ. It is a crippling belief. And it is untrue.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit in you and move you to follow all my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. – God in Ezekiel 36:26-27”

Golden sand

... the loneliness, the tears, the disillusionment, the sense of time slipping through my fingers like golden sand.

The injustice of suffering children

"Few realities are more haunting than a child who lives day to day devoid of hope for the future. My greatest hope for our world today is that we would restore hope to suffering children.

Because the children of today hold tomorrow in their hands, it is essential that they believe that the world around them can change for the better.

Someone once said that defeated armies do not fight very hard. If children lack hope for the future, as adults they will not be willing to fight against the injustices of the present.”
