Life is hard
Don’t forget
Bumps and bruises
Typify it

Christ in you
Is victory
Your life is His
In Him you win

Claim His Word
It’s written to you
7,000 promises
To see you through

He knows the things
That gets your goat
Bend your knee
Ask for hope

And when you sin
Confess to Him
I was wrong
Please come in

Ask Him for
This moment’s strength
He will change your thoughts
He will fight your sin

Be of God
Walk His way
Change those things
That hurt you today

And when you change
Your strength will grow
Surrender all
And Christ you will know


In the Lord
I find my strength
To deal with life
To live like Christ

He is Lord
He rules my life
I seek His face
I ask His advice

What Christ says
I hear and do
His change in me
Will bless you

The value of
God’s victory
Is from
The pain I knew

Pain of hurt
That stalked my path
Calling me
In failure’s plea

Now I live
Christ in me
Giving me
My victory


The heart is wicked
It misleads all
Telling them
They are nine feet tall

Then pouncing when
Their foolish acts
Produce a life
That has only lack

Christ forgives
He brought you a heart
Full of life
No painful part

Now when evil
Comes your way
Reminding you
It had its say

You can claim
Christ in you
He lives with strength
Forgiving you

Evil cannot win
You are unbeatable when
You yield to Christ
And claim your life in Jesus name


The majesty of the name of the Lord is worthy of my consideration and contemplation. His majesty is the very thing that I can relate to and have a specific feeling about.

I am constantly trying to succeed at things. But it is the failure to succeed that pulls me down and the results of success itself that encourages me to inflate my own estimation of self. Neither is ever correct. Just around the corner from failure is success. Just down the road from success is failure. Humanity lives with this reality. I experience this in my own life.

The Lord has perfect knowledge. He neither overestimates himself nor does He have a poor view of himself. In the midst of His work in me I do not disappoint nor do I elate. Majesty is indeed a proper expression for me of God’s name. My success eternally is a once and for all time choice of Him. When I choose Jesus I choose success.

The Lord sees me complete in Christ. The Father expresses absolute love for me in Christ. I will eternally receive only good from the hand of the Lord. This indeed encourages me to proclaim Majestic is your name o Lord. The Lord is good and is robed in majesty. What a God we serve!


My life was a mess
No place to rest
Everyone hurt me
I couldn’t connect with a soul

All around
Was pretty ground
My heart was bare
The lights a glare

The road ahead
Was dark and a dread
What would I do?
Could I make it through?

Then Christ found me
He heard my plea
He touched my soul
Brought warmth to the cold

My life was renewed
My worth was in view
His plan for me
Not controlled by me history

Each day was new
He rescued me
From a life of pain
A life with no name

He knows my work
He hears my need
Jesus is with me
His plan includes me

Today I count
I can live and be free
Not because of what I have
But because of who has me


What does God look like?
I’ve often asked
If you’ve seen Jesus
Then you know

God is kind
He cares for me
His heart is beating
Inside of me

God is love
He sent His Son
To rescue me
Before my life was done

God is here
He never leaves
I can see His presence
In all I receive

God is protection
He guides my way
Giving me wisdom
Helping me pray

God is warmth
He shelters my soul
From long dark nights
From fear of the unknown

God is value
He listens to me
Letting me ramble
Insuring I am free

God is eternal
I will never leave Him
He is my savior
On this I depend


The church is maligned
It is mistreated and ill defined
Many would destroy it
It is the body of Christ

Men form it
Reform and control it
Seek to hold it
But Christ is its head

Hypocrites join it
Idiots misuse it
Some confuse it
But Jesus always will win

Power for presentation
Community for the desperate
Worker for the needy
Christ’s church will prevail

God inspires it
Christ leads it
People need it
The church belongs to God


He found me walking
Down a dead end street
Nameless and evil
I was a slave to sin

Jesus called me
Said He would free me
And give me life
From bondage I would be free

He paid for my sin
And took me in
Reconciling me to God
Paid in full and free

Christ was my friend
He valued me
He said I was His
His worth was in me

My path was new
I could serve and grow
Knowing that Christ
Would keep me whole

Each day is a joy
God’s love in me
Christ directing
My heart is free

Now I know
What I had missed
My life in Christ
Has God in it

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is holding “campus” classes at our North Georgia Campus in Decatur, Georgia. This is an every two year event where we bring our faculty and staff from New Orleans to the off-campus center. It is expensive and logistically a night mare but well worth the investment. When you are training people to work with people it is important that you have a feel for the training process and that those studying see those leading the program in the flesh. We are doing that.

Ah, but on the road is still on the road. I love to travel but I don’t love the process. Hotels and restaurants aren’t my cup of tea. When I was young I loved all of it. As I age and all of the aspects of aging set in it gets tougher. I heard someone say that “if they had known they were going to live this long they would have taken better care of themselves.” I think I agree with that. Hindsight is so clear.

Everything gets out of whack when you travel for several days. Eating is a major chaotic event. Discipline of exercise, quiet time, rest and all other things get confused. But there is the time away when the system gets reset and the anxieties of everyday life are set aside.

Travel well.
