Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, Into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, and bless his name. Psalms 100:4
I wish I could tell all of the people everywhere who gives true happiness. I wish I could let them know that God provides happiness that doesn’t end when the sauce does. I want everyone to know that a relationship with God is not just an excellent source of happiness; it is THE source. God treasures us so much that His number one priority is what is best for us, and how to get us to heaven to spend eternity with Him.

This morning I was singing, Rock of Ages, cleft for me. In the song, “cleft” means broken. And the song refers to Jesus’ body broken to save me from my sins. But “cleft” also refers to those broken cracks within rocks. The study of rocks, of course is the science of geology. Geology reminds me of Jesus.
A teen in crisis is beyond overwhelming. You don’t even know where to start in getting help or if they can even be healed of their crisis. I can tell you that this is not true. In God’s eyes, He knows differently. He will be your Anchor in the midst of your storm. He has an answer.
I can build my secure little fence and stay here nursing my regrets, or I can fling open the gate and let the world in. Or better yet, step out into the world and join God where He is already working. I’m betting that in the process of taking down that fence, flinging open the gate, I’ll see the regrets flee as well.
What happens when you allow your gaze to stray away from Jesus and focus on the wind and the waves? You sink. The waves surround you,they block out the light, and the love of Jesus.
