Here is Ben Rector’s two-cents about Making Money


Making money, it isn’t easy And it sure won’t make you happy So I think it’s funny, we’re so concerned with making money And money won’t keep folks from grieving And it won’t stop love from leaving So here’s my two cents What’s the use in making money And I know that life ain’t cheap And not all good things are free But there is no enough and no too much and it seems so strange to me I just think it’s funny, we’re so concerned with making money I make my living singing love songs That I made up cause I love songs But folks believe them, So I’m receiving paper money Don’t get me wrong, I love my lady And I probably wouldn’t trade her But life’s no better with debts or debters Making money And I know that life ain’t cheap And not all good things are free But there is no enough and no too much And it seems so strange to me I just think it’s funny, we’re so concerned …

Dance in the Rain? We can’t dance until we lean how to lament.


Written by Janelle Wangle with Jayleen Wangle via Bible Insight Just about everyone has heard the anonymous saying, “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.” I wonder what the original author meant by “dance”?

But if dance means to have intimacy with God, then I heartily agree. The last line of Michael Card’s song “Underneath the Door” says: “Pain is the pen that writes the songs and they call us forth to dance.” Card is calling us to dance to the songs that pain has written for us. These songs are written in major and minor keys. Many times they are not “beautiful,” and in fact are quite harsh, but the finished product is a masterpiece. Learning to Lament How do we dance to these songs? By being real with God. That’s the only way …

Show me a Blessed man and I will show you a Godly man


Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1 Things he doesn’t do: He does not follow the counsel of the wicked He deos not imulate the ways of sinners He does not follow the examples of scoffers Things he does: He delights in the word of God He meditates on the word of God What are the visible results of his choices: He is well norished spiritually He bears all the spiritual fruits He is fresh and never butned out He prospers in whatever he does He receives praise from his maker He has fellowship with the father He is guided by His maker There …
