New Blog Address, #PrayForBostonBomber

Hey folks! I have another blog address that I have been trying to update and work on, and for the most part it is complete. It is called: This Jolly Adventure. It is actually my main blog address, and the one I will be posting on the majority of the time. Check it out! My aim in writing on it is to live the Good Life; the life that God has called each of us to live. A life like Jesus.

Also check out my latest post that I wrote in response to the Boston Bomber being caught. I have found so many Christian friends rejoicing at the bomber being caught, and wanting revenge, rather than justice, mercy, and compassion. Here’s the link: Feel free to comment or discuss any thoughts!

“Will you be the hands and feet of Jesus to the brokenhearted and outcast people in your life?”

Cleanse My Leprous Heart

Mark 1:40-42

“And the leper came to him [Jesus], imploring him, and kneeling said to him, ‘If you will, you can make me clean.’ Moved with pity, he [Jesus] stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, ‘I will; be clean.’ And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.”

Sin has a way of making one feel so filthy, especially when the sin was committed knowingly and willingly. Oftentimes I feel so wretched, I don’t feel like Christ could have compassion on anyone so dirty as myself. Yet the leper never even doubted that Jesus was able to cleanse him. He knew Jesus could. All the leper could do was get on his knees and implore of Christ that He be willing to cleanse.

When we come to Christ on our knees, with faith and a knowledge of His willingness to purify us, He is moved with compassion and is not even afraid to touch our leprous souls. He doesn’t even flinch at being exposed to our filthiness and disease.

He is moved with compassion over my grimy self! And He says, “I am willing. Be clean.”

Lord, if You will, cleanse my leprous heart.

Fallen, Yet Prayerful

“Man has upon him his flesh, which is at once his burden and his temptation. He drags it with him and yields to it. He must watch it, check it, repress it, and obey it only at the last extremity. There may be some fault even in this obedience; but the fault thus committed is venial [excusable]; it is a fall, but a fall on the knees which may terminate in prayer.”
Victor Hugo, from Les Misérables
