A Song Called Revisions: 5 Encouragements For the Road Ahead

Revisions, revisions, revisions. If you have ever dreamed of writing a novel, or have already undergone the work of doing so, then the song called “Revisions,” is one of familiarity to you. It’s a catchy tune, being that it only has ONE word…Revisions. Let’s face it, writing a novel is an amazing adventure, one that you can’t really express how great it is in words, even though it is built of nothing but words. But even with all that fun and glory there is the not-so-fun part of the journey, which entails editing and revisions. Revision: (re·vi·sion)- To change text: To amend text in order to improve, adapt it, update it, or correct it” Even without a definition the word itself tells you what it is about; Revision-re-vision: Get a different vision. Maybe you are seeing with decent creative vision, but 20/20 is obviously better than “decent.” Can we all be honest? Most of us think our first drafts are GOLDEN anyway!

Always Welcome: A Word & Musical Interlude

Seeing then that we have a Great High Priest, that is passed into the Heavens, Jesus, The Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a High priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore COME BOLDLY unto THE THRONE OF GRACE, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” ~Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV I want to encourage you today. I don’t care what is going on in your life, how you may have failed, what sin you may find yourself entangled in, I want you to know that if you have given your heart to Yeshua Jesus that He is not taken by surprise when you stumble, nor is He shaking His head in condemnation towards you (Romans 8:1).
