Visualize God’s Love


Psalm 34:8 says that we are to “Taste and see that the LORD is good.”

Ginny Owens has dedicated her life to helping others visualize God’s love.  She may not see the same as others do, but she certainly sees God’s love and shares it with others through timbre, lyrics, and devotion.

When asked why she does what she does, she replied:

“I really feel like my “why” is that I write music to communicate the gospels, to communicate the hope that I have in Christ, and to communicate to others that there is indeed hope. “

When it comes to Ginny’s music, there is always a reason behind the rhyme.  She speaks of encountering others who are at points of desperation and wanting to share a reminder and invitation to know the freedom that comes from knowing Jesus.

Thanks for tuning in to this beautiful story of hope!  You can listen to Ginny’s music and find updates on her latest album.

Christian the Lion remembers

I have learned that “it is very easy to lose focus on eternal, spiritual truths when everything around us pushes us to give all our attention to our immediate, urgent, and often seemingly more interesting circumstances. But when we honor God by focusing our lives on him by serving him to the best of our ability (2 Timothy 2:15), by maintaining love and unity among ourselves (John 17:11), and by standing firm in confidence and hope in him (Hebrews 3:6), we will find that our circumstances will certainly be no less interesting…” (How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens by Michael Williams)

And for some reason, ‘Christian the Lion’ came to mind. The image of a Lion after a long time in the wild makes his current circumstance predict him as wild and dangerous; not remembering his past owners. But yet, the outcome says otherwise. He remembers his ‘owners’ and greets them! It is definitely mind boggling.

As the quote from above, we may sometimes “forget” our relationship with our Heavenly Father and “give all our attention to our immediate, urgent and often seemingly more interesting circumstances” but maybe today is a start, a start to remind ourselves of our calling to…

  • Give Him our best (2 Timothy 2:15)
  • Maintain unity among yourselves (John 17:11)
  • Offer our whole selves to Him (Romans 12:11)
  • Have firm confidence and hope in Him

Let us remember what our ‘owner’ has done for us and despite our ‘wild’ circumstances, let’s get back into focusing on our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Weakness is the Way

In the following video, J.I. Packer, renowned theologian and author of the forthcoming ‘Weakness is the Way,’ reflects on his experience of weakness, having been hit by a bread truck as a child and now facing the realities of aging.

“For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor 12:9–10)

So lean on Christ, the lover of your soul, as Paul did, and in all your ongoing weakness, real as it is, you too will be empowered to cope and will be established in comfort and joy.
—J. I. Packer

In what ways will you lean on Christ today? He is waiting for us…
