change you can believe in

Barak Obama can't bring it. Neither can John McCain. If we are really getting down to it, no one is able to bring the change that makes any lasting difference. Except the Lord. I have been thinking about this all week long. To have any change effective and lasting it must happen in our hearts and in us as individuals. "Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Phil 1:6. No matter what your political leanings or how you feel about the outcome of the election, our hope is not in man. "Our hope comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:2 "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." Hebrews 6:19 When we allow Him to work in us and rework us that is when real change occurs. That's change you can believe in. He's promised it...you can believe it.

WOW...you 'knocked my socks off'-again. I might be tempted to think you got those pictures from some professional somewhere if it weren't for the fact that I recognize your yard. They are spectacular..as is the truth that you shared from your heart and from The Word!

You always share such good
'nuggets of truth' (as your mom would say!)

Have a nice weekend!

amazing pictures, but more amazing words. you speak truth, and i had kindred thoughts as we approached and traversed through the election. God's purpose, promise and person do not waver, and He is in control.
