Young and old will hear of your faithfulness.
Your unfailing love will last forever.
Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.”
Psalm 89:1-2 NLT
When you begin to understand your place in God’s heart, you will recognize your purpose on earth. We find our identity and…Continue

“We continue to shout our praise even when we are hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary-we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit.” Romans 5:3-5,…Continue
“Who would, after seeking the King’s palace, be content to stand in the door, when he is invited to dwell in the King’s presence and share with Him in all the glory of His royal life? Certainly, all would assume that no one would so foolishly give up a royal life to merely stand in the doorway, separated from all the pleasures of living in the King’s presence,” adapted from the wisdom of Andrew Murray, from his…Continue

Ever wondered what really verifies your uniqueness? Of course you have. We all do. Truth be told we all question the certainty of our ‘one-of-a-kind’ existence. Inherent in our wondering is the hope of being truly rare and distinctive. Is there anything that sets us above or distinguishes us from the crowd?
“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t…Continue

The Grace of Jesus brings true context to our lives. If you examine your meaning by any other context, you cheapen your worth. Also, relationships viewed through the lenses of Grace take on an unalterable value. Apart from Grace we tend to use people and love things. Grace implores us to use things and love people!
“The Word became a human being; we are his address; he…Continue
Well it is a brand new day. Don't let others rob you of it. Have courage instead of fear. Laugh instead of cry. Lead instead of follow. Soar instead of falling. Except this challenge and live.

“Jesus said, "I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen me in action, you don't really believe me. Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me. And once that person is with me, I hold on and don't let go. I came down from heaven not to follow my own whim but to accomplish the will of the One who sent me.
This, in a nutshell, is that…Continue

You can't be lost without first truly belonging! Our belonging trumps any lost-ness we have ever experienced! As bearers of the image and likeness of God, we are always invited into the depths of His searching and finding. I desire to fully know and be fully known!
The story of Calvary’s Cross beckons us afresh into knowing Jesus as The Son of Man. As Son of Man he gave His…Continue

"How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He's the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us into places of high blessing in him.
Long before he laid earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his…Continue

Be still. Can you hear it? Do you perceive what is about to happen? Do you think that all your sweat and effort will accomplish what you are really longing for? We are entering a season of shout followed by a holy hush! Be still and know that only God can accomplish what must be done for there to be any hope.
This fresh move must be entered with one clear and resounding shout: a shout to precede the Holy hush. Can you shout with all your heart? And then, can you wait in a Holy silent…Continue

"If I have learned anything these last eight years it's that every one of us, big or small, powerful or weak, is on our own journey. As with any journey, there will be a wide variety of twists, detours, wrong turns, mistakes, breakdowns and times of being lost. Sometimes we live in seasons of fruitfulness, and sometimes we are dry as a desert. But no matter what happens, if we don't have community and quality, honest…Continue

How is your spiritual vision? Did you know that through the “eyes” of the heart God-sight is available? What is God-sight? It is the ability to see all of life from the vantage point of His perspective. There is no higher or clearer perspective possible!
This “God-sight” is only and always illumined by faith! And it enables us to “know” what we "know" beyond the scope of mere intellect or understanding. For example; we can know we are securely seated…Continue
"The truth, for which I would give my life, must also be the truths for which I am living!" The New Covenant heart must be at the apex of that list. Many die for family, friends, country—but not enough value their own heart that high! The heart is mentioned over 1,000 times in the Bible.
We have spent and wasted so much time in our Christian history trying to get "there" when "there" is where we begin! (Our very origin is) Co-seated…by God's doing! We have always been “there” in…Continue
