Meet Jack Reilly...and Meet Jesus!

Wow! That is all I can say! My last post was a "sports" post. This is a "life" post.

Stop what you're doing and read this! Incredible! Wow!

When you're done, come back and read the words to the song below. Only when you are done!

Father I Never Had
by Joel Engle

Verse 1
There's a little child inside this man, who still does not understand
Why momma had to die, she didn't say goodbye
Daddy left without a trace, I never even saw his face
Was I to blame, I still feel the pain of hot shattered like glass that cut my soul to pieces
I never thought I would love again, until I met you Jesus

You're the Father I never had
And Your love never changes, through the good times and the bad
You're the Father I never had
Just hold me in Your arms and heal me of the past and be the Father I never had

Verse 2
I was a teenage boy in a small town, standing outside the crowd
Unwanted and unclaimed, a face without a name, almost every night I'd cry and cry
Asking the questions why, mom and dad would leave this lonely son to grieve
The deserts of my years, they were watered with my tears,
But when I met you face to Face, You wiped away my fears.


Although I was rejected, You were my friend
Although I was abandoned, Your love drew me in.....
Oh Your love drew me in...


Double Wow!

A Question and Dancer Kind of Guy

From my journal entry this morning:

"2 Samuel 5 & 6 tells the story of David dancing before the Lord. But before the dance comes victory. Before the victory comes the battle. Before the battle comes hearing from the Lord. Before hearing from the Lord comes inquiring from the Lord.

God help me to inquire of you - your will for my life. I want to say to you, 'if you say go attack the Philistines I will go.' I want to hear from you. I want to go to battle! I want to experience victory. I want to dance! God I love you. Show me what you want me to do for your name today! I'll become undignified for you!"

Everyone wants victory. If you ask God, you just might get it. If you get with all your might!

Open Me

Shawn McDonald sings a song that is the cry of my heart. It is a plea from the deep, real part of his soul. It is my prayer also.

Would You open up eyes, so I can see
Would You open up my ears, so I can hear
Would You open up my mind, so I can know
Would You open up my heart, so could love You more

I want to serve You, my God
I want to give everything
I want to serve You, my King, yeah
I want to serve You, my Lord
I want to give You everything, yeah

Here I am with my arms open wide
Asking for You to come up, up inside
Won’t You make me new, won’t You make me true
Jesus, won’t You make me like You, oh

Will You touch my eyes so I can see
Will You touch my ears so I can hear
Will You touch my mind so I can know
Will You touch my heart so I can love You more

Won’t You open me
Won’t You open me, open me
Won’t You open me, open me
Won’t You open me, open me
Won’t You open me, open me

What is your soul's strong supplication?
