This post is difficult to write. Dear fans of Tess Williams, on May 2nd Tess was traveling in India with her husband and was killed in a Taxi accident. This is not a joke or false. We are asking for your prayers for her husband and family during this difficult time. There is a memorial fund that has been set up in her honor. The proceeds will go to the Embrace a Village children's home in Coimbatore, India. This is a place that Tess was involved with that very close to her heart. If you would like to honor her memory, please make a donation. The picture below was taken while Tess and Shankar were visiting the EAV children's home, I'm sure you can see the joy and peace on her face. I am asking also that you are respectful with your comments as they will be read by her grieving family.
Please be assured that her books will still be available online. Also, we will be doing our best to edit and publish any works she has already completed.

She loved you all, and prayed for you often. 
Thank you -Beth Cox (Tess' sister)

Say Something

Here's another Heart Song from God's heart, straight to you! Love you all!

Isaiah 54:10 “For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

God makes this covenant, as a part of His new covenant, which the apostles later confirm in the New Testament, when it is written: “Nothing can separate us from the love of God because of the way the Master Jesus Christ has embraced us.”

Does this mean that it wasn’t in God’s heart to feel this way that this song is expressing? Or perhaps this would be a better question: “What is the stone that bars the way between giving up on someone or not?” 

We have a lot of relationships being given up on around us. What is the problem? God said clearly: He will never give up on His special ones. And we did far worse to him than any could ever do to us. So what does He have? 

This song says: “I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you.”

Why can’t we get to the heart of the person that we love? Or once loved? Why did we love them once, but now don’t love them any longer? Why couldn’t we “get to them?” 

It’s simple. “The stone which the builders rejected, this has become the chief Cornerstone.” This chief cornerstone, is Christ Himself, the propitiation for our sins, and all sins. The stone that lies between reaching the one we love IN love, is all the hurt, and all the wrongness; now Christ stands there, on all sides, for all who accept it. 

Cease to say: “There is no hope for us. I’m giving up.” There is always a hope. There is nothing on the way, in the road to that person’s heart -- no matter their wrong. They don’t need to say a word.
Jesus did everything.
