The world says, “Hooray for the A-listers, the ones who get the nods.”
Jesus says, “Blessed are those who know they are nobodies, and can do nothing apart from God.”

The world says, “Don’t worry, be happy, let’s party, life is short.”
"Blessed are those who grief for their sins, and fast for eternal cause.”

The world says, “Go. Fight. Take short cuts. You go nowhere if you are weak.”
"The gentle shall inherit the earth, control your temper, be meek.”

The world says, “Blessed is he who says, ‘I am strong, I have no need.’”
“Satisfaction comes to those who ask to be filled, who pray, knock and seek.”

The world says, “Remember those who hurt you. Complain. Keep score. Make them pay.”
“You are smart if you show mercy, turn the other cheek, do it God’s way.”

The world says, “It’s all about what people see, so look good, be cool, be sharp.”
“It’s all about what God sees in you, and Who you see in your heart.”

The world says, “Look away. Mind your own business. Live a life that’s trouble free.”
“Speak up for the fatherless, stand up for the lost; the sons of God are those who bring peace.”

The world says, “Be a Christian, but play it safe, make everybody happy, win the vote.”
“There’s no such thing as a popular believer. Walk in the light. Speak truth. Take the narrow road.”

About Me

In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
