Down but not out.


CliffsNotes® notes version: I asked the woman I’m currently interested in tonight for her contact information and was denied.  My perfect streak is still intact.  I’m still batting .000 in my lifetime in that every person I’ve ever been interested in has never reciprocated.  I will keep praying and keep fighting on for ol’ JC!  He has already fought on to victory!


Here in the love and power of Christ I stand!






Resurrection Day last Sunday reminded me of this song.  I LOVE how you can hear the voices of little kids in the background in the third verse!  I also love how you can hear Geoff come in on verse two!


In Christ Alone
Sung by Geoff Moore and Adrienne Liesching


In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again (YEAH!!!!!!!)
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt of life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
