Just give me Jesus.

Cleerely Stated IG #71-01
????”You can have all this world, just give me Jesus. Give me Jesus, give me Jesus, you can have all this world, just give me Jesus.”

(Are you singing this in your head right now? I hope so).

All that you need for all that you will encounter today is Jesus. It’s Him. Him and Him alone.

Isn’t that magnificent???

So why then, do we search, often frantically, for a better solution? A more immediate answer? An easier method to our madness? Haven’t we been told? Hasn’t the world disappointed us enough & haven’t we bloodied our knees enough to know that He is truly all we need?

“In the morning, when I rise, give me Jesus.”

Yes, give me Jesus! Today and everyday.

Lord, we are humbled for another day, prepared for all that comes our way and all our problems at Your feet, we lay, because you are Jesus!

We thank You for clean slates, continued provision and Your unending mercy. Help us remember that as we start our day remembering You are all that we need, that this truth must lead us throughout our day.

You. Deserve. It. All.

Not because of what you give, but because of who You are. Not even because we have a solution to find, but because You allow us to be present within the problems. Not because of us, but because of YOU.

Have the best Monday, friends! Jesus loves you!

“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” -John 15:16

I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
