Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
Were not our hearts greatly moved and burning within us while He was talking with us on the road
as He opened and explained to us the sense of the Scriptures?
Luke 24:32 THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE
Saddened by emptiness?
Obey Me, and I will make Myself real to you.
Trade a long face for a smile—be a good advertisement for the gospel.
I am your Source of Music—sing out for the entire world to hear.
Entombed by loneliness?
You are never alone—I walk alongside you on every road you travel.
When perplexing cares crowd your heart, I console and cheer you.
I am your Greatest Friend—you have not lost Me, so dance for joy.
Afraid of death?
Hear My reassuring voice and overcome Satan-coaxed anxiety.
Death Valley terror disappears as you realize shadows mean Light.
I am your Life—I will defeat all enemies, so count on ultimate victory.
Open the eyes of your heart and envision My promised bright future.
Wait patiently for My new world to materialize—be brave-hearted.
I am your Center of Gravity—hide in Me and unflinchingly trust.
Perplexed by despair?
Guilt, death, hopelessness, angst, and gloom burden your heart.
Grace, vitality, hope, faith, mercy, and freedom bless your heart.
I am your Redeemer—hang on for dear life—all is well.
Walk life’s road with Me—and I will change dejection to delight,
skepticism to optimism, despair to hope, restlessness to tranquility,
depression to ecstasy, self-pity to praise, and doubt to worship.
I am your God—rest assured.
