Jesus Healed During Sabbath

Jesus Healed During Sabbath

Jesus cleaned feet

He said it’s hard for the rich

To enter the Kingdom of God

This statement my seem flawed

But our hearts must be submitted

The lowly will rise

While the high will no longer be lifted 

He threw tables of the pretend

And to those who follow Him

He is your forever friend 


This answer is plain

He knows every intention

At every village He didn’t heal

He knew what their hearts concealed

But He said healing during Sabbath is fine 

He came to bind up the broken hearted

He said He’ll leave the 99 for the one any time

And He welcome the prodigals home

God looks to and fro the earth

He looks for obedient hearts

With a hunger coming forth

Scripture Encouragement from 1 Thessalonians

Good news! Troubles ahead but God is faithful if we submit to Him! Idols keep us from God’s heart but serving Him protects us from future judgement! You may be saved but wouldn’t rather serve God with your whole heart?


“They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath” 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10


A shorten version of this found on my Twitter at @RedeemingFather.

The Carpenter Knows Me

The Carpenter knows me
He has fashioned me
For such a time as this
In this thing called life
With all its plot twists


I started as wood
Even my heart
But he broke me apart
He used chisels
And screws
To make me new


I hated this process
How it still goes on!
I measured my success
By how polished others were
But you said, “You are a beautiful mess”


But you taught me through the pain
And clipping away rusting character traits
Ones that are way past an expiration date
I thought I had solutions in my mind
But I see the tools start to rotate


And I know it’s time
To change me in a whole new way
At a molecular level
Get past the agony
And resist the devil


You have always been there
You won’t stop now
I can always feel you somehow
Even in all this peeling away
Scarred people run from the Lord
But renewed ones run toward

God is Faithful

God is faithful 

We should be grateful 

The grass may fade 

And bodies turn to dust

But believing is a must 


When will the end be?

How faraway is eternity?

All I know the earth is decaying 

In time the trumpets to be playing 


Do you believe God is faithful to the end?

And that every knee will bend?

These trouble seem to go on for miles

But will see His goodness in these trials


My story is relatable and unique 

But in Him I am strong when I feel weak

God is faithful to me

Just look at the cross at Calvary
