Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

Lift Jesus Up!

I was thinking this morning about how I desire to draw people toward the Lord in my writings and songs. Then I thought about John 12:32: "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." I have to be careful about my focus. My job isn't to push people toward the Saviour, but to lift up the name of Jesus. HE will draw all men unto Himself. We have to lift up Jesus so they can see Him. Why? HE is the hope of the world. He is their HOPE! Jesus is STILL the answer and the only way to forgiveness of sin and reconciliation with God. That's HUGE! It's worth it, worth our time, worth our money, worth our sacrifice, worth our wounded pride. People NEED the Lord, people need the LORD, so if you love people, lift Jesus higher.

    1. Hi John! Oh, politics can drive us all crazy, can't it? I prefer to lift up Jesus' name. I wrote a song in response to all the disunity in our nation, and even in the world. There is something that we all have in common, something that can unify us all. We are all in the same boat with this. Please listen to this song, and I'd love to get your feedback. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8SKAb2Sldk
