Jordan For Jesus #006 "Unstoppable" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-27 07:21:19
Jesus so willingly gave everything for us, including His life, on the cross. Because Jesus has so willingly given us everything, even though we are so undeserving, I believe that Jesus is more than worthy and more than deserving of everything. He deserves everything we can give Him and more. He doesn't deserve it only because He gave us everything, even though we were so undeserving, but just because He is God.
Jesus doesn't need what we have, but because He knew that He was sufficient for our every need, He gave Himself to us. God isn't needy, but we are a very needy people, and God is more than all we need. Although anything that we could ever give to Him would never ever be enough, to Jesus it is enough. Jesus is more than everything, and He gave Himself to us because He loves us.
That is true love! God isn't deserving of half of our life! He is more than worthy and more than deserving of one hundred percent of us! He is more than worthy and more than deserving of our life, heart, and who we are completely. He deserves our all!
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.

Slightly Obsessed #195: What Is the Apocalypse?
The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
Slightly Obsessed #194 Heaven Is Calling: More than an Angel
The question is rhetorical, with God assuming the reader will understand that the answer is, “There is no angel whom the Lord has called His Son.” This passage is one meant to address the dilemma posed to the first century Christians, but it is one whom every person must answer in his own heart:
