“But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” John 15:7
I tried to read the Bible many times in my young life, but my efforts didn’t last long. I either didn’t understand it, lacked discipline or maybe, if I’m being honest, the true desire. It wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s the desire was aroused within and I began to dig in and for the first time in my life, the Word
What can we do when it feels like the world has been stripped of you? How should we go? How do we proceed and prevail?
We proceed faithfully into our destiny.
Ships have anchors to hold them tight during the dread of night.
Though the calm around you is absent, there can still be a calm within you. Hold onto him deliberately. You have got to be deliberate.
What do you do when it feels the Lord has taken from you about all he can take, only to find he is asking
God’s Grace cannot be trumped by our goodness. His grace is scandalous and pardons what we can’t fix and I think this is a beautiful, but peculiar aspect to His Character.
I love it!
Our obedience is a form of adoration, but it is not the instrument of His portions.
Because HE Lives!
We may fall…
But He will rise!
Doing good and being good are good. But what stirs God’s heart is when we love good.
God doesn’t need our effort to advance Himself, but by the power of His love He includes
People don’t usually judge you by what’s going on in your heart…
They judge based on what’s going on in theirs.
There are two types of people in this world. There are those who go through a difficult experience, time or season and they bleed it out on others. Their bleeding may be crying to everyone about it obsessively, their bleeding may be a chronic bad mood or attitude or possibly they have difficulty functioning in the dailies of life. (These are all just merely observations, not judgments.)
But then there
You’ve got a light about you.
Bask in it.
Radiate in it—
Do not conceal that which is Radiant within you. Just like the moon— your glow is powerful,
but does not overwhelm.
The moon’s glow doesn’t burn as the sun, but brightly reflects the fire and zeal within your soul.
“We ran as if to meet the moon.”
You don’t need to have a reason— just opportunity. Every day is your showcase to demonstrate the inspiration that dwells deep within…the inspired life you were sent to live. It has power and
“I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for He speaks peace in His faithful people.” Psalm 85:8
His wisdom has no measure, His greatness is Infinite. No mind can grasp Him, yet every heart can hold Him.
That’s my God!
He is above all. He is the Bridge for every gap or lack. He is the all time greatest Vision Caster and Dreamer. He is awesome beyond measure.
That’s my God!
He knows all, can do all, Repairer of Broken Walls and Restorer of streets without dwelling. He can take the shaken,
When loves walks in you can feel it…
Unfortunately only women will able to relate to this, but if you’ve ever been pregnant you know what I mean. Once the baby in gestation gets to around the 16 weeks you may begin to feel the baby move. As the baby grows the feelings get stronger and you can literally discern the shape of the baby. My oldest had her toes wrapped around my ribs for the entire third trimester and I could caress the heel of her foot quite discernibly. I
“Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.”
1 Kings 18:43
In this passage we read how Elijah called forth in faith a Mighty rain storm. He prayed and prayed with his head down low until a small, non-intimidating cloud appeared. And as that cloud drew near, a Mighty storm unloaded water to a dry Kingdom.
Is your life experiencing lack or dryness? Are you thirsting for more? Your more can be any of a myriad of things. More groceries for your family. More gas in the car.
A person who is well loved is better able to go out and love EVERYONE better.
Doing good and being good are good. But what stirs God’s heart is when we “love good”–
Learning to love like Jesus should go deeper everyday.
Live like you are loved.
Im not talking about human love—
But, of course, human love makes such a profound difference.
This is why we are commissioned to love, first our God (He is to be our first love) and then our neighbor as ourself. Who is our neighbor? Everyone outside of ourselves!
“He makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire.”
You can never observe the supernatural with natural eyes and understand what you see.
It won’t look right.
it won’t look right because we’ve not seen it before. It won’t fit into any category of our mind’s frame, our common sense or main stream opinion. It will have a flavor uniquely all its own. It will set ablaze every heart in its path…
Ablaze with true grace, liberty and freedom of soul.
A Fire woken up inside of the hearts it touches, a soul
