“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it’s expressed, in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends, until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.”

To Him who loves us and freed us from our sins be glory. Revelation 1: 5-6



Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Be Thou My Vision


Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Hymn Be Thou My Vision by Eleanor H. Hull, 1912

foods of faith


“God delights to increase the faith of His children. And it’s for this reason, instead of wanting no trials before a victory, no exercise for patience; we ought to be willing, to take them from God’s hand as a means. When it comes to experiencing trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, we must understand that these are the very food of faith.”

Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth. Nothing is too hard for you. Jeremiah 32:17
