Life with no direction: have you ever been there? You know, just blowing in the wind. Just letting the cares of life take you where they may. You don’t really care where you have been or where you are going. You are just floating along life’s journey with seemingly no purpose or direction. Are you giving up? Do you not care? Well, I care and God cares. You also need to care. I have written a little parable that will perhaps…

This Is Grace. By Sarah Dawn Helser
(I offer this on the altar of authenticity; as a powerful testimonial of transforming grace, leading the way for a life of Thanksgiving~~Ron Ross)
A fraction of a second and a spill can cost you a month’s income. A mere moment I did not pay attention and the wine was splashing over the entire face of my keyboard. I could almost hear the belly of my computer drowning in a crimson bath, soldiers being sucked beneath the…

the LORD revealed to me a silver door glowing white then i see the door open and i saw a garden that death nor sin, nor anger, not depression nor any other worldy thing has touched by only prosperity and life dwells within this garden then i see the LORD the Messiah come up with His arm streched out toward me saying "come my lovely bride into my hands so i may be one with you" the LORD is calling a generation who are prepared to open the door and step into this garden

“I lower you into the depths of despair to lift you into the heights of joy. The way up is the way down. There is no other way. You will not hear My song of love until you hear no other music.”
There is no shortcut to a deep encounter with My Son.
The beginning of the gospel is bad news, not only that you are a sinner but that your sin has left you empty and alone, desperate to feel fulfilled and connected, willing to do whatever provides an escape (albeit…Continue

James Houston said; “True Christianity is turning the possible into the actual.” Is this true for you? How do the possible become the actual in our experience? A good friend of mine and I were having a conversation that is of increasing concern the other day. Maybe you share the unease that perhaps a serious, growing problem in the church must be vigorously addressed: most Christians don’t know the Bible well and are even convinced that it is un-necessary for their faith walk.
Following are some words from Papa’s heart that are imperative if we are to make it through these difficult days. When received, they will strengthen you for whatever the journey has for you. All of creation is groaning for the sons and daughters of God to be made manifest. Therefore, it is more vital than ever to remember; shaking and baking always precedes coming out into the open!
“You’ve made a mess, but I have a plan. Nothing works as…Continue

Zech. 8:6: The Lord says, "This seems unbelievable to you-a remnant, small, discouraged as you are-but it is no great thing for me. (TLB)
Do I dare to believe the “unbelievable”? Even though I get…Continue
Potential: existing in possibility: capable of development into actuality
Too many of us are intimidated by potential. Why? Could it be that potential has not been nurtured into the core of who/whose we are? Frankly, I have taken the potential course a number of times and dropped out just before the semester ended.
It’s not that we don’t have the potential for fully realizing our potential. It’s more that we get distracted by and listen to the unrelenting…Continue

Sunday during worship service, while we sang a song about trials and pain a particular scripture kept coming up inside of me.
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
It was so intense that I actually found myself shouting out “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross.” This word…Continue
