Jordan For Jesus #035 "For Life (All I Need Is Jesus)" by Jordan Elizabeth on 2015-01-29 11:05:21
“In the morning rest your elbows on the windowsills of heaven. Gaze upon the Lord and with that vision in your heart go forth to greet the day.”
In life, there are so many distractions. Distractions are anything that separates you from God and that pulls you away from God rather than drawing you closer to Him. These distractions are very real and satan sends these distractions to distract God’s people from keeping their eyes on Jesus.
It is so important to keep our eyes focused on Jesus! If we take our eyes off of Jesus, we are pulled away from Him by the distractions sent by satan.
This is satan’s purpose and intent to separate us from Christ Jesus and distance our relationship with Him. You see, satan wants our soul just as badly as God does. Therefore, he will do everything in his power to get it. Even if that means sending distractions, in the process, if he knows that is what it takes to get your soul. Satan knows just what to say and do to get you to take your eyes off of Jesus. He is sneaky, but nothing can separate God’s people from God Himself. We belong to God.
Nothing can take us out of the Lord’s grasp. Although, we can be tempted to take our eyes off of Jesus, but this is the constant daily battle that everyone fights as a Christian. We must stay focused on the Lord so we are not tempted and deceived by satan.
As Christians, we must have the kind of heart that says, “Jesus, I want You for life because I know that all else fades away.” If we have this kind of heart, we will not be tempted and deceived to take our eyes off of Jesus and focus on distractions sent by satan.
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:
