Heart Burn

Heart Burn

Were not our hearts burning? Yes, when He spoke with us on the road to Emmaus. Reclining at the table, Jesus broke bread with us! He opened up the Scripture to us! But we were slow to believe Wanting proof, some went to the tomb and found it empty. The prophets had spoken these things! [...]

It Is Finished

It Is Finished

It's a battle It's a war But you can't see the arrows And you can't see the swords It cuts to the bone and marrow It divides a house and home It rips apart a family It leaves you feeling alone But we don't fight against flesh and blood But against the rulers and authorities [...]
