Introducing Perfect Mess

Does Perfect exist in this messy world?  It can when we shift our search from perfection to Perfect Love, and here is where we discover how.  Through a weekly blog, vblog, and interactive bible studies, we will journey from perfect mess to perfectly loved.

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”

1 John 1:7 (ESV)

What a wonder, that Christ bore our curse on a tree, and in so doing, made Himself One with us.

The barrier that held Him from us, our sinful, cursed flesh, He removed once and for all. And in so doing, made His Life, Spirit and Oneness available to all who are willing.

Like a Door, He hung, making a Way for each one of us to walk from a sin cursed world right into right standing in the Kingdom of God.

Life or Death, blessing or curse, futility or eternity; all hinge upon whether one will walk through the Door and be made new by the Blood of the Lamb.

We hang in the balance in a world between feeling we have everything to prove, or resting in the One Who gave everything so that there is nothing left to prove.

Pride rejects the Cross because it convinces us to protect self at all cost.

Grace embraces the Cross because in it, we find not only Christ, but our truest self.

Who we are in Jesus is who we truly are. One with Him, no longer bound to the laws of sin or this world, but held together by grace in the perfect love of God.

Each day we wake up with two options, we can stay in the earthy realm, dealing with earthly problems, relying on fleshly strength, and experiencing the weight of it all.

Or, we can enter our Father's house, know that we are children of God, living in the realm of heaven, even as we are on earth. We can be assured that every obstacle in our path is one we can encounter and conquer through our Father's strength as we continually entrust our lives and journey to Him, knowing He already bore the weight of it all.

We can be about our business or about our Father's business.

Our choice indicates who is truly lord over our lives. It is the power of God that enables us to suddenly see our lives with new eyes and to understand that each facet around us is placed there by our Father working within us.

What a wonder to realize that every encounter we face is an opportunity to encounter our Father, our Maker, our LORD.

Life becomes one big adventure as we realize this, and as we suddenly are bathed in awareness that, "being about our Father's business," is not a burdensome weight to bear, but an ever increasing adventure in understanding the weight that He already bore to carry us.

"The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made with human hands..." Acts 17: 24

"..In him we live and move and have our being, ' as even some of your own poets have said, "For we are indeed his offspring. " Acts 17:28

I burst into tears as my eyes fell on these words anew this morning, "For nothing will be impossible with God." Luke 1:37

How my heart longs for remember this one simple truth; that when Jesus is here, anything is possible and nothing is impossible.

There are moments in our lives and in history when darkness seems to pick a fight with Light, just to see if Light has given up shining.

Darkness had surely come, or so it seemed, for God's people. After four hundred years of not hearing God's voice, how hard must it have been to still believe that He was REAL, that He was still had a PLAN, that He CARED.

And suddenly, in a moment, He comes, not only announcing good news, but bringing His announcement in such a way that it aligns with His character, "He has brought down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of humble estate; He has filled the hungry with good things." Luke 1:52-53.

Like me does your heart need reminding that, "..nothing will be impossible with God?"

If so, take courage from a young woman who, when confronted in her darkness with a chance to carry the Light, simply responded, "...let it be to me according to Your Word."

Truly, anything is possible and nothing is impossible when we let Jesus be born in and through us.

He is REAL, He still has a PLAN, and He CARES.

And His LIGHT is ready to be born and displayed in you and me today.

"The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you." Luke 1:35

Come, be born in us today, Jesus, our Light of the world.

There is such peace that comes once we finally remember Whose hands we truly are in, and rest in them.

No more struggling over how, when, and who. Only a surrendered soul, resting in the Hands of the One Who is the answer to all of our questions.

An arrow rests upon the shoulder of a warrior until he is ready to is ready to pluck it from his quiver, place it in his bow, and sent it soaring into it's intended target.

We are surely God's arrows, His children, whom He has chosen to rest in Him, to trust in Him, and to be used by His mighty hand for His intended targets.

An arrow outside of a warrior's hands is useless, and our lives outside our Father's hands are useless.

We so often wish to be the warrior instead of the arrow.

What a beautiful moment it is when Christ takes one surrendered arrow to pierce through darkness, He opens up a window straight into heaven, by which we are able to see His glorious face.

Oh, how our needs more arrows.

What if realizing how much we need one another is part of wedding preparation?

"Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure"- for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints." Revelation 19:6-8

Until this morning, I never caught that within Revelation 19:8, is a hidden clue about how we, the Bride, are to prepare for our wedding day.

Notice that when it refers to the white linen we are to be wearing, it is referenced in the singular form, however our deeds are plural.

Hidden within these words that were proclaimed by a voice described as, "what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and the sound of mighty peals of thunder," (Revelation 19:6), is a devine hint, perhaps a prophetic clue as to how we are dress ourselves for this occasion.

We, the Bride, are one (see John 17), however our righteous deeds are as countless as the stars.

One day, perhaps sooner than we realize, we will each stand before our Bride Groom, Jesus, and although our deeds will have been separate, they will have each been woven together to create a wedding gown that only God can make.

We are wise to recognize our Oneness with Christ here and now, and allow our future reality to shape our current vision and choices.

I find it beautiful and fascinating the way God sees us as One Bride, strung together through One Faith, in One Perfect Savior.

And not only that, He has chosen to allow all we accomplish through that One faith in Christ to be interwoven with the moment our faith becomes our sight, the moment all we seek to become meets the reality of our becoming, our wedding day to Christ Jesus.

O LORD, help me never divorce what You are doing through me from who You have called me to do it beside. Thank-You for truly making us One in Your name, and for Your glory. Help us realize both our contribution to Your body, as well as our need for Your body. Amen.

In light of my last post, I was challenged to be vulnerable about my "ways" in which I struggle to allow Jesus to help me become all He knows I am.

Right now I am dealing with the last remnants of a very long health battle, one from which I was not sure I would survive or not.

By God's grace, I am still here and doing miraculously well, however I developed some "frumpy" ways during my health battle.

There are things you let slide when you are fighting for your life, and then once you come out on the other side, its all so overwhelming.

On top of that, there is a whole new perspective on life, on Christ, and on how just how quick, and silly life here really is and it seems that all I truly wish to do is share all I learned in the valley of the shadow with those around me.

Anyway, it has and is becoming so hard to balance the profound with the practical.

And as much as I love the profound, I know the excellence of Christ is every bit as much about the practical.

So, I am praying about my ways, and submitting them to Christ in hopes that He will lead me to perfect balance, as only He can.

What about you? What are some of your "ways" that He is challenging you in right now?

Somewhere along the way, my fears over not being the perfect wife, mom, servant, or friend became overshadowed by a greater fear, that of arriving to heaven half-baked

Somehow, in seeking to become all Christ says I am, I have become a better wife, mom, servant, and friend.

Yet, there is so much more.

In knowing Christ, we are allowed to know our highest self, and invited to become him/her in His Presence.

The choice is always there; will we accept the invitation?

Oh, how often my heart breaks as I acknowledge my own propensity to choose where I am over where He beckons me.

I am here, now, in a million strung together moment of decision where I must either become who He says I am or risk arriving to heaven half-baked.

Jesus, help my desire to become all You say I am become greater than my desire to stay the same. Thank You for these moments of confrontation, where we are reminded that You have chosen more for us. Amen.

The ability to see ourselves and others through the GRACE of GOD is an outright miracle.

We see the depravity of man, yet in our hearts, know the inner hope that exits for every man through knowing the grace of Christ.

Because of Whose we are, we can never look at another without knowing the infinite possibility that exist within each human soul.

Like little children walking through a storm, we know the rainbow is coming and our hearts are too busy seeking it out to notice the thunder and lighting all around us.

Grace changes everything and leaves every single human encounter we engage in pregnant with the hope of new Life springing right up from the most barren soul.

This is why we have every reason to hope as we set every expectation, not on the flesh of men, but on the grace of God that may implode within our interactions with human hearts.

We are like hounds of heaven, searching and seeking for a heart that is ready to come to life within the perfect grace of Christ.

What an exciting existence we get to experience!

Jesus, help us see others through Your eyes of grace and be willing to help them see themselves that way too. Thank You for the Cross, through which we are held secure in Your grace. Amen.

What does it look like to trust in God's Sovereignty, even when your enemies are constantly pursuing you?

David gives us an awesome example in his encounters with Saul (see 1 Samuel 25-26).

Even when constantly threatened and attacked, he continued to trust God.

And even when he was given opportunity to slay his enemy, he did not, but continued to wait upon the LORD's vindication.

We are living under constant attack and the temptation is to vindicate ourselves. Yet, what if Jesus is watching and waiting to see who will trust Him? Who will wait upon Him to see Him move on our behalf?

This doesn't mean we don't stand in victory but it does mean that when we move towards victory, it is from the Spirit empowered, clearly directed, unmistakable, infallible, and undefeatable leading of the LORD.

Many of us are so quick to respond to the flesh from the flesh, and there will never be a victory in that.

Jesus, teach us to truly trust in You, wait on You, and BELIEVE You as we face those who are opposed to You. Forgive us for all the times we believe we can fight Your battles better than You can. Amen.

When i needed healing from my abortions, I was so blessed that God provided a recovery class right at my home church, yet not everyone is able to have that offered to them and they don't know where to go for healing.

Many are too afraid to ask their church or close friends for help or direction.

This healing conference offers anyone who has been impacted by abortion the chance to receive counsel, training and healing resources, as well as yo hear the testimonies of many women who have been healed (like mine).

Does your church or community have a place for those who need healing to turn?

Please consider sharing this FREE event with them.

Although the conference begins this weekend, the link will stay active for 90 days after the conference.

Blessings,

Rhonda

We so easily allow our earthly values of accomplishment block our view from seeing all God is accomplishing in us.

Our goal is production.

His goal is to see His Son produced in our lives.

"Christ in you, the hope of glory..." Colossians 1:27

Our eyes and hearts think, "God's goal is for me to make it to the otherside, yet I am perishing"

Then we see Jesus walking on top of the waves that are taking us under and realize that God's goal may be altogether different than what we first imagined.

"Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid." Mark 6:50

Faith in His Son IS God's goal for us, and God will often engineers our circumstances to allow us to SEE that what He is after in us lies in stark contrast to what we believe He requires from us.

And we are faced with the most humbling realization, that we have NOTHING to offer God, save faith in His Son.

Jesus, help us SEE You today, and SEE the truth about ourselves that WE NEED YOU, and stand no chance of making it across these troubling times save faith in You. Thank You for already securing our safe delivery to the other side. Amen.

We can defend ourselves, or we can truly BELIEVE that the LORD is our defense.

Our greatest indicator of whether we truly honor Him as our LORD is how we respond to those who threaten us, who are over us, who oppose us and whose authority we cannot come out from under.

Can we trust Him as our LORD, even when we are attacked?

Perhaps, He allows such circumstances to occur so that He might find out the truth of who we really are.

Or so that we might discover the truth of who we really are, and let it break our hearts, and turn in repentance to the only One who can change us.

We are living in tumultuous times.
In the end, we will all stand before Christ, our LORD, and we will know the Truth, that He has never forsaken us, yet we so often have forsaken Him by not trusting Him as LORD over our lives.

Oh, what ceaseless ways we wander
Seeking shelter on our own
All the while, He beckons
"My child, come home, come home."

The word, Kiddush, in Hebrew is a wedding term. It means sanctification, or set-apart. It refers to the moment the bridegroom asks the bride if she will drink from his cup, and in a sense, he is asking her, "will you be sanctified (or set apart) to me?"
If she drinks, she becomes his, and even though in ancient Hebrew times, the groom would depart for a long period of time to go and prepare a home for his bride, the bride was, from that moment on, legally and spiritually one with her groom.

As it is with the bride, so it is with us, the Bride of Christ. When we became One with Christ, we became sanctified to Him, set apart in holy union to Him.

What God has joined together, let no man take apart.

To the degree that we truly believe we are One with Christ, we will live as we are.

There is no doubt that Jesus believed fully in His oneness with us, for He drank fully of our wrath in order to secure our Oneness with Him.

Our wrath was real to Him.
Will we let His holiness be real to us?

The question remains, will we drink fully of His holiness? Will we truly say back to Him, "yes, I am Yours, to have and to hold, from this day forward..."

Wow, I found these notes written in my Bible this morning ...goes right along with my prior post!

God is our Light shining in the darkness, will we let Him shine in us?

The scriptures I attached these notes to are John 9:40-41

"The Pharisees who were standing there heard him and asked, "Are you saying we are blind?"
"If you were blind, you wouldn't be guilty," Jesus replied, "But you remain guilty because you claim you can see."

Oh LORD, help us be humble enough to admit when we can't SEE, help us SEE You, and let Your guiding Presence be all the Sight we need. Thank You for being our literal Light in this present darkness, Jesus. Amen

I sense this very thing happening in our world right now.

We watch as the world becomes darker and darker around us, almost like a divine invitation beckoning us to acknowledge the TRUTH of who we really are.

We hate the darkness because it represents all our greatest fears coming towards us. Like a bully, it beckons us ,"come out and show me who you really are."

Darkness either overtakes us so we cannot see, or it forces us to embrace the LIGHT that Christ has already given us, and shine as we never have before. And in so doing, we get to discover the Truth of who we've always been, yet never believed ourselves to be.

"...Christ in you, the hope of glory. " Colossians 1:27

God does not fear our darknes because He knows He already overcame it.

There is but one thing left, and that is, will believe Him?

Our response to the darkness will show us the truth of wbo we really believe God to be, and who we believe Him to be.

"Come out of hiding, you're safe here with Me, there's no need to cover what I already see." Out of Hiding, Steffany Gretzinger

The enemy feeds on what we withhold from God. I didn't realize how true this was until Jesus finally gave me the courage to confront my most hidden sins of my three abortions.

The world has made the word, "abortion" to be a polical hot button, however for those of us who have chosen abortion, it represents so much more. For me, it conjured up reminders of my greatest shame and the place in my heart I wanted to bury down the deepest.

One of the kindest things Jesus ever did for me was to reach down into my heart and ask my permission to roll away the stone from my heart that kept me from fully understanding the fullness of what Jesus did at the Cross.

The Cross becomes most Real when it becomes most personal.

Please join myself and so many others as we invite the world into a place of healing from abortion.

"I've loved you before you knew it was love, I saw it all, and still chose the Cross. There's no need to stand at a distance anymore. You're not far from home."- Out of Hiding.

"You are from below: I am from above. You are of this world; I am not. That is why I said that you will die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am who you say I am, you will die in your sins." -Jesus (John 8:23-24)

Right now, there is still a chance to believe Jesus and, in so doing, be delivered from this world that is perishing.

When a boat is sinking, it no longer matters what people's opinions are about how or why the boat is sinking. There is only but one action, and that is to place our bodies into the lifeboats that are offered to us, and if possible, help as many along with us into those lifeboats as well.

This world is perishing. So many eyes are blind to Life boat God has extended to us.
Let us not go down with the boat as we argue and fuss over whose fault it is for the sinking, but let us be thankful for God's teaching down and offering us His own salvation through believing on Christ.

Time is short, its time to be about our Father's business, and that is spreading the Hope of Jesus to all who will come and be saved from this perishing world.

Sin sinks us.
Life lifts us.
Jesus alone, held the tension between the two
While He endured every sin to sink upon Him,
He secured every life to be lifted in Him.
He, alone, is our Boat upon which every heart can arrive safe and sound above this sinking world.

Thank-You, Jesus, for coming for us to offer an escape from this perishing world. Help us reach out to others as You have reached out to us, to offer Your Life to those who are perishing. Help us lift You up as You draw all men to Yourself. Amen.

How different could our lives be if we truly believed that we are FULLY encapsulated in our Father's LOVE?

Then we would KNOW that NOTHING that filters through our lives without first touching HIM.

It would mean that Jesus truly IS in us and around us, working all things for good, according to HIS HOLY KNOWLEDGE of good, not ours.

What could happen when we truly stop being the artist of our own lives and instead pass off the paint brush to our Maker?

Oh, what kind of masterpiece could He paint in and through us? It would be a work worthy of hanging in the halls of heaven.

How we limit our Maker by believing we might paint a better portrait of our lives than He can.

May we release ourselves fully into His hands and watch with expectancy as He turns, even our darkest moments, into a gallery worthy of bearing His name.

As I began praying this morning, in my heart I could see a great field before me, and I knew that it was full of land mines, they were covered with dust, yet I could see Jesus Breathing on the dust so all the landmines were uncovered, and all the sudden I could see a trail open up before me. I could hear His Voice over me saying joyfully, "come on, let's head to the house of the LORD." (Palm 122:1).
The scriptures came alive in my heart, "Your Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light to my path," Psalm 119:105, and "And with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace." Ephesians 6:15. I knew it was so important to measure each step and to keep extra mindful of every move I was making, and not to look up too far ahead as I might miss the Way before me. "..Walk before Me and be blameless" Genesis 17:1. "So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. " Galatians 5:16.
I knew Jesus was and is forging a trail before me, a trail of faith in His Word, and it was and is imperative that I listen for every step. And the trail was and is leaving goodness and mercy behind, for others to find and experience His Light in. "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever." Psalm 23:6. This is a time for wisdom over each step, a joyful time where we can KNOW we are heading to the LORD's house, even as we walk through a field of landmines. He IS with us, He never fails to be our Most Faithful Shepherd.

Jesus, thank You for giving us Your Word and Your Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us to You. Thank You for not leaving us as orphans, but for coming for us and walking beside us as we stand before the world's field of landmines. Thank You for ever being our Good Shepherd Who guides us through every moment we face. Amen.

"The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things." Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am he." John 4:25-26

C.S. Lewis in his beloved book, Screwtape letters, describes the enemy's kingdom as, "the Kingdom of Noise."

As we look about our world today, it's obvious which kingdom is fighting real Truth, and it can appear to be winning.

The same way it appeared to have won when Jesus breathed His last on the Cross.

Yet, there is another Kingdom here and it moves, not in the noise, but in the hearts of men-in the hearts of you and me.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1.

"My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world. Then Pilate said to him, "so you are a king? Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this purposeI was born and for this purpose I have come into the world-to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice" John 18:36-37

These are very LOUD times. The kingdom of noise is after one thing-our hearts knowing Truth.

Loudness is no substitute for TRUTH.

Jesus is here, inviting many to know Him, and all who do, will know the difference between volume and true authority that only comes with KNOWING Truth, Himself, Jesus Christ.

There comes a time when each of us must decide to kick out every other voice about ourselves that doesn't line up with who God says we are.

Two questions that I ask God daily and that have saved my life are:

1. Jesus, can You show me the TRUTH about myself?

2. Jesus, can You show me the TRUTH about You?

And I listen and respond to His Word about me.

Can we turn down the volume of all the noise Going on around us?

Probably not, yet we can turn that volume down in our hearts as we tune into God's Voice of Truth over our lives and decide to believe and trust Him alone and begin truly letting Him rule in and through us.

"You cannot imitate the nature of Jesus-it is either in you or it is not." Oswald Chambers.

Oh, once we see the truth about our true nature, we shall see how far we have yet to go. Yet, our faithful LORD ever leads us upward, through challenges and struggles, we ever become who He is causing us to be.

One day soon we will look over our earthly pilgrimage with Christ beside us, and we will SEE how utterly without hope we were, save each moment we acknowledged our LORD and He ever came for us.

And we will surely say, "never once was I forsaken. Surely God was in this place and I did not know it."

How lost we become when we fail to see.
His ever reaching arms, stretched out for me.
How easy it becomes to lose our place,
And forfeit our chance to finish our race.
Yet, He beside me, gently whispers my name,
And I remember at once, I've His glory to gain.
As I rise to run, with new vision before me,
I can hardly wait to go tell His Story.

How does God do surgery on our hearts? Could it be that all the surgical masks we are seeing around us, and the need for a sterile environment are signs of something greater Jesus is doing in us?

Could it be that God is using what the enemy meant for evil for good in the body of Christ?

We believed this to be our year of perfect vision, 2020, yet only God can truly heal our eyes so that we might SEE.

Perhaps, in the midst of a world in chaos and darkness, our Father, with the most skillful Hands, is providing each one of us the opportunity to have anything removed that keeps us from perfect relationship with Himself.

Until He alone BECOMES our VISION, it will never be perfect.

Jesus, don't stop Your divine surgery on each of our hearts until our hearts fully see You, and as we do, we will become the pure Bride, worthy of all You paid for at the Cross. Amen.

Could it be that the enemy, knowing his time is short, and the potency of the Gospel we carry within us, seeks to seclude us from sharing it, withdraw us and make us into self-protective little islands to ourselves rather than the Brightly Shining Bride of Christ?
Let us not be unprepared virgins during this last hour (Matthew 25:1-13), but let us keep our lamps trimmed that Christ might use us to Shine His Light for many to see and know the way home.

Jesus, let us shine brightly for You, and stay fully awake in You as You shine through us. AMEN.

When was Satan cast from heaven? The moment Jesus fulfilled His covenant to save you and me.
Before that, the enemy was granted access to God's throne to constantly accuse us before God.

Can you imagine a Loving Father having to constantly listen to every accusation over each one of his wayward child's life?
How heartbreaking.

What a glorious moment it was when He saw us each REDEEMED, completely FREE from ALL accusations!

No wonder He lets the angels dance around the throne each time one of us comes home!

Christ complete removal of all accusations over us became REAL at the Cross.
Our sins no longer exist in heaven for one reason, because Christ carried each one of them in His own body and did away with them once and for all.

The moment the accusations stopped in heaven, they accelerated here down on earth.
For the enemy knows that we don't fully know or believe the fullness of what Christ accomplished on our behalf.

His ultimate goal?

Keep us from God, our Father, so we can go down with Him, and like him, have no place to stand in heaven

Truth is, you and I are perfectly clean in God's sight because of what Christ did on our behalf.
Yet, many will never know because we will fall for the schemes of the enemy rather than stand in the truth of God.

But what if we didn't? What if today we begin believing what Jesus did really is true? What if we stopped all accusations and began worshipping God in Spirit and Truth?

Let the angels dance begin!

Jesus, thank You for the truth of what You accomplished at the Cross and how You completely removed every one of our accusations. Help us stand in and for Your truth all the way home. Amen.

"The darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness." 1 John 2:8-9

"And no wonder, since Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light " 2 Corinthians 11:14

These are times when we must be discerning. The enemy is using false light in every direction to cause us to turn from one another, in so doing, deny Christ's character within us.

Yet, there is one way that Christ remains true, simple and discernable in this world.

Love.

It should stand out like the brightest star against the gloomiest backdrop of our current world.

GOD IS LOVE.

We can recognize Him when we see His love displayed in this world. How God defines love is so very different from the world's way.

The world says, "agree with our sin or we will hate you."

God says, "let Me die to remove your sin because I love you." (See John 3:16).

There is much false light shining in our world today, men being led by an enemy whose only desire is to lead them to destruction.

Yet, Jesus, our Lamb, is still here, shining His true Light through His Bride. "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:35

Bride, let's check our hearts. If we are not able to love the world as Christ does, we have much more to fear than what is happening in the world right now.

Jesus, please forgive us for all the ways we allow ourselves to get caught up in lesser things, instead of keeping our eyes on You, our One True Light. Help us see the truth about ourselves, who we are in Your light instead of judging one another in the lesser light.
We repent, help us repent and be ready to stand before You in Spirit and Truth. Amen.

Feeling like parched ground? Parched ground can do absolutely nothing to change its situation. It lies to give testimony to it's circumstances, a visible sign post that says,
"there is no life here. "

The shriveled up soil is useless.

No one can plant in parched ground.
Without God's mercy, the parched ground will never experience itself, what it was designed to become. It will never know what it is to hold a seed, and to participate with God in the miracle of that seed leaving it's shell to expand into something brand new, a whole new creation that, mingled with the Light and Life of God, is able to offer life to others.

It's God's grace that allows parched ground to become rich soil. It's His grace that allows seeds to fall into the soil, producing food that extend His life to us.

"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped...For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert."
Isaiah 35:5&6b

There comes a moment when each of us must acknowledge our true state, that we are parched ground, with no ability to change our circumstance.

Oh, the mercy of our Great God, Whose vision over us never changes, and Who, Alone, is able to make our parched souls into a garden for His Own heart to dwell.

Jesus, thank-You for seeing us, even in our parched state and loving us, even when we have nothing to offer You, save our sincere acknowledgment that we really need You. Please send Your rain on our hearts, make us into a garden for Your heart to dwell. Amen.

We can't call ourselves Christians and yet express judgments that exist outside of Christ own.
He, Himself, stayed submitted to His Father's judgment, and it was His Father's judgment that caused Him to go to the Cross and be judged as sin on our behalf.
I am thankful that our Savior, even though He was God, stayed submitted to God in order to be qualified to remove the barrier which keeps us from God, ie, our sin.
When we express fleshly judgments that are not filtered through Christ's Spirit living in us, we are exhibiting the world to the world.
And the world does not need any more world, the world needs Jesus, and He has given us us everything we need to express Who He is to this world.
The world has yet to see the church fully submitted to who Christ says she is, a Bride, fully Ond with Him, fully operating in submission to Him, just as He was to the Father.
When we express ourselves apart from Christ, we are expressing to the world our lack of Oneness with Christ. How heartbreaking this must be to the One Whose heart broke to bring us into Oneness with Himself.

Oh, Jesus, help us SEE the truth about ourselves and move back into full alignment with You. Amen.

Got worry? Or should I ask, do we have reason to worry or reason to fear?

When we look with the eyes of man, we have every reason to squirm about in our own uneasiness, waiting for the darkness to overtake the last bit of light we are standing on.

Yet, when we look into the face of Jesus, we can't help but arise and walk out from our self appointed tombs as His Light victoriously and consistently overcomes any darkness and fear we face.

When our eyes are on us, we have every reason to fear, to self protect, to isolate and lash out at anyone who dares drag us from our self appointed sovereignty over our fleshy fears.

Yet, when our eyes are on Him, we have every reason to hope, to live in freedom to look around and look up. We get to stop self guarding all the time and we get to see and to love. We know His eyes are on those things which concern us, and this frees us to believe His plans are still good, despite what we see with our eyes.

Worry is an indication that we have set our eyes on the wrong face.
It takes some audacity to look into the face of the One who overcame every darkness we will ever face in this world and still not trust Him.

Jesus, we ask for Your help to set our eyes on You alone. We repent from worrying and ask that You will set our eyrs wholly and Holy upon You alone. Amen.

"But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of sun or of moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is the light." Revelation 21:22-23

One day soon we will walk in the REAL that we sometimes must press so hard to enter into.

The closer we come, the harder the press seems to feel. Almost like a young oak, trying to burst through that final tough layer of rough top soil, we feel the pressing, and sometimes it feels as if its us causing the pressure.

Yet, it isn't.

It's just Jesus.

He alone, expressing Himself through us, in us, until He breaks through us, and we break through all the unreal and become His expression of glory in this world.

We may see, hear, and experience the world, but only He bore the weight of it.

Just Jesus.

One day soon, we will walk into the REAL, where even the air we breathe, the light by which we see, and the worship by which our hearts come fully alive will reach full expression.

We will experience then the beautiful simplicity of what it is to have no more unreal to press through.

Just Jesus.

Oh, what a glorious future awaits us.

Jesus, help us press on to keep our lives simply about You. Amen.

Fear-false evidence appearing real.

There is lots of reasons to fear, there always has been. There always will be.

I use to have a saying I would tell myself to help keep my priorities straight. I would say, "Rhonda, keep your loves in order and all else will be in order.,"

I find myself these days saying the same thing, but replacing the word "fear", as I have struggled lately with letting fear keep me from always having my loves in order.

So, now I am saying, "Rhonda, keep your fears in order and then all your loves will be in order."

It's amazing how quickly fear can come in between love.

Yet God offers us an escape from fear. He doesn't blindly say, "don't be afraid."

He offers us a greater fear than those things we are afraid of.

He says, "fear Me, I Am greater than anything you could ever face and I Am for you."

God never asks us to not be afraid, He asks us to trust Him in the midst of our fear and believe that He is truly with us.

He did this with Moses when He called Him to go deliver His people.

He did this when He sent Joshua to go conquer the land.

He did this with us when He promised He would send our Helper who would be with us and us.

Over and over in the bible, God uses circumstances around us that illicit fear to demonstrate the truth about where our hearts really are.

Do we truly trust God, or not?

When our greater fear is God, we may be shaking in our boots, but we are going forward.

Jesus, help us keep our fears in order and keep Fear of You as our top fear so that the fears of this world will not be a snare to us. Thank You for standing with us in the midst of such fearful times. When we stand before You, surely we will say, "never once were we forsaken." We love You, amen.

Two things that make a follower of Jesus different in this world.

Jesus is truly thier first love. And not only that, but His love drives His person.

Which leads to the second thing that makes the follower different in this world, His love drives the Way inside His beloved.

While the rest of the world is ascribing to man made ways of being and doing, or even feeling, a follower of Christ looks completely different.

They are moved by one thing only, an abiding love relationship with Jesus, Himself.

While the rest of the world is moving towards the world's systems and goals, the follower of Christ is experiencing the wonder of being caught up in the most extravagant, ever expanding, ever fulfilling adventure ever, that of being a living vessel of Christ's love.

The world seeks to carve out a path, find love, and leave legacy.

The follower of Christ is abiding in a Living Way that accomplishes all of the above, but yet seeks none of it.

I'm simply loving Jesus with all our heart, we gain all ours and so much more.

This is the face behind the mess. I realize many may not know me in person.
My name is Rhonda and I'm a wife, mom, former elementary school counselor. I fell in love with Jesus and the Bible when I realized what a perfect mess I was at age thirty. I was going through a divorce and pregnant with my second child. All my life choices up had culminated into one heaping mess and a moment when I realized there was no one left to blame but myself.
It was such a relief to finally admit that I was lost, didn't have the answers and didn't even have the strength to seek them anymore.
I love Jesus and believe in Him because He's the God Who comes for us in THOSE moments.
I pray that I can stay in THAT rest, the rest that KNOWS its okay to be me because He is my Savior and my LORD. And He came for me, knowing He would find me right in my biggest mess.
I trust Him because as I've come to walk with Him over these past 18 years, I have understood more and more what it means that His perfect love casts out all fear.
He became a Perfect Mess on my behalf (and yours), knowing in advance that all He would get in return was a chance that this perfect mess might recognize Him, and one day want to be made clean in His love.
I have so far to go, but I am so thankful for Jesus and for each of you who, like me, have decided to exchange your perfect mess for the one Who became a Perfect Mess on our behalf. I can't wait to give you all a hug and high five at THE FINISH LINE.

How dare we ever lesson the grip by which has snatched us straight from hell?
To lesson the grip is to let others slip through Christ's nail scarred hands.
I am a hell bound sinner, bent on destroying myself and everyone around me save Christ's Grace upon my life.
I need His grace as much as the air I breathe.
I need His grace every second.
I need His grace over every one of my thoughts.
I am a perfect mess save the One Who made Himself a Perfect Mess on my behalf.
We all need Jesus' grace over our lives.
It's our one true equalizer and in the end, it will be the only thing that distinguishes us from one another.
There will be those who SAW their need for His grace and received it.
And those who SAW their need for it, but instead of receiving it, spent their lives trying to justify themselves before men and God.
One day we will each stand before the One Who became a Perfect Mess on each of our behalf and there will be no more justifying on that day.
We will gaze upon the eyes of the One whom we have pierced, and we will know as we have been fully known.
There will be no more words, just an acknowledgment that He is altogether Right and it's been His grace that has ever caused any of us to stand.
Jesus, help our brothers and sisters who are loosening the grip to SEE and REPENT, and RETURN to Your Grace Alone. Amen.

Jesus is always asking each of us for a drink from a well He knows we only have access to through Him.
Our response to His asking tells us the truth about how we see ourselves and Him.
Some of us, believing we are amply supplied with water, offer Him freely from our overabundance of what we have determined He is seeking.
Others of us, like the woman at the well, toss back a resentful statement for His asking.
We have accepted our identity and resent any confrontation that demands we adjust who we are for another.
What a gift we receive when we allow ourselves the chance to SEE who we are through His eyes.
For the first group, the truth that we can freely admit we have nothing to offer God, save that which He offers us. We are free to stop performing every time someone asks us for a drink of Him.
For the second group, we are free to SEE ourselves as Jesus does, to rest in the refreshing reality that He makes our past, present, and future an ever springing up life before us, free from boxes that others have tried to shove us into. In His eyes, we get to become whole new creations, living from His definition of who we are, which is good, whole, holy and right.
Jesus asks us for what He knows He alone can provide us, and in His asking, He is inviting us into the abundant, ever refreshing life that springs up from being vitally connected to Him.

"The bride will go where the bridegroom is." John 3:29
"Those who believe in Him discover that God is true." John 3:33

One moment can chance everything.
One moment, we are ours and the whole universe seems to be shifting beneath our feet.
No certainty.
No lasting peace.
No true hope.
Only a striving, a chasing, and grasping for a million little pieces, in hopes that the chasing keeps us distracted from the gravity of our reality.
This is us before our wedding day.
We strive to become something we can never be.
And then He comes.
And in a moment, we are stirred to faith as we recognize He is everything we are not.
He is certain and true.
He is peace and peaceful.
He is whole and holy.
And as He reaches out His hand, we recognize the question He is asking, "will you marry Me?"
Will you leave your life of striving and enter Mine of standing?
What a gift it is when we say, "yes," and we become the Bride of Christ.

Mornings with Jesus are magical to me, I can stumble into our study, head hazy with worldly concerns, sometimes with only enough clarity to know that I need to get to Jesus. And He shows up, every single time!
As I lay my head in His lap and began to let myself become wrapped in the wonder of Him, I become resurrected anew in who He is. A million deaths and rebirths have happened for me this way, in just acknowledging my need for Him, He fills me with all I lack.
This morning was no different, only it was, in the sense that a simple question I had asked Him about my health turned into an invitation to join Him in discovering all He has to say about one certain topic; Choosing Life.
The verses below have saved my life and sanity over and over again, yet as much as I have gained from them, Jesus is showing me that I have still so much more to learn about choosing life and what it really looks like in my life.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20” I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”
As He spoke these words to me today and opened my eyes to ways that I am still not applying these verses, in essence, not trusting Him, in my life, I felt a divine invitation happen in my heart. It was like He was extending His hand out towards me asking, “Do you really want to know what choosing Life in Me looks like?”
I am saying, “yes!”
And I am inviting you along with me.
I will post here at least three times a week about how Jesus is prompting me to choose Life.
I will begin with how this whole thing got started today.
As I was praying about my health, this is what I heard in my heart.
Rhonda, you cannot sow where you have not reaped. Make room for LIFE and you will find it. ( finish at blog).#chooselife

"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" Colossians 3:3

There is a beautiful, free, ever expanding life just waiting for me each time I step out of me and into the wondrous possibility of Christ.

The new creation He causes me to be simply springs to life the moment I remember that I died with Christ. It's as if I get to experience a million personal Resurrection mornings dawning in me!
I die, and He raises me anew.

Again and Again and Again.

The two greatest miracles Christ has done and is ever doing in me are this;

He surely gives me a safe place to die, and release my heavy burdened self to His hands.

He surely causes me to live, a life free from all the bondage tied to that burdened down old self.
We marvel at the miracles He did in His earthly ministry, yet can there be any greater miracle than that we witness each day dead men walking around, fully alive and free in Christ?
What an amazing Savior we have!

When I consider these verses and this devotion today, I can't help but think of Matthew 7:22-23, where Jesus speaks of a day when many will be surprised when they stand before Him in His Kingdom. "Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" It's so easy to say, "Jesus is love, therefore I will love people in His name!" And then we run off without Him, believing we are doing His will.
Or to say, "Jesus is truth, so I will pursue truth and proclaim truth in His name!" And we run off without Him, and believe we are doing His will.
Or say, "Jesus is Life! Therefore I will tell others and show them what life looks like in His name."
But, we run off without Him and believe we are doing His will.
We forget that Jesus said, "I am the Way!" That means that, without Him, there is no love, truth, or life.
We can't leave Him out of building His own kingdom. He builds us, and in knowing Him, we become living stones in His unshakable, eternal Kingdom. He, alone, expresses Himself through us. And in so doing, we come to KNOW, BELIEVE, and EXPAND the very Kingdom of God.
Its easy to build a kingdom based on our own understanding of Jesus, that leaves out the REALITY of Him.
There are many kingdoms built that proclaim Jesus, yet have nothing to do with His true identity.
If Jesus, Himself, is not the vital source and inspiration of the kingdom, it is a farce, a man made kingdom that distracts others from finding and seeking the True and LIVING Way which is Christ Alone.
We out to be wise and consider the source of what kingdoms we align our souls to during our earthly journey. We have but a small window to Recognize and Receive the True, Living, Eternal God.
All other kingdoms will surely pass away.
Jesus, please open our eyes wide to SEE and FIND You, alone. Amen.

When we begin to SEE with the eyes of our heart, like street signs held out over our souls, we can begin to SEE which Way leads to life and which leads to death by listening to what words are spoken.
Our battle is not against flesh and blood, yet our emeny will use the tongues of those influenced by death to spread his cause here on earth.
Yet, we have great power to overcome.
How?
When we hear death, we speak Life!
Not our own ideas of what life is, for there is no power in that.
But, Life, Himself, Christ in us, the Hope of glory, living inside us has the power to make even the darkest corner of earth alive with His Light, His Words, His thoughts, His Spirit alive through us.
When we lean on Him, we are able to turn His light on and make a path that was death suddenly spring a new direction to Life, simply by opening a mouth that is fully surrendered to Christ.
The bait that leads to death is set. The enemy is counting on us to take it, and boast of it, and in so doing, fulfill his plans of stealing, killing, and destroying many.
I pray we will KNOW LIFE, LEAN ON HIM, and turn His Light on Brightly.
Jesus, help us love Life and not death and help us be those who speak Life and not death in this world. Amen.

When we SEE ourselves in God's sight, we SEE the truth about us, that we are utterly destitute sinners , whom without Christ's unimaginable mercy poured over us, were damned for all eternity. We understand that we have absolutely NO right to stand EXCEPT that Christ blood and love compells us, and only that others might SEE and receive the same kindness and mercy from God that we ourselves have been mercifully given.
When we SEE the world today, we ought not to judge, but to pray for a blind world who cannot SEE.
Unlike blind Bartemaus, we don't see our true nature and know that Jesus is here to heal us.
When we see the truth about ourselves, we can't help but see our need to exchange it for the One Who is our Truth, our Life and our Way.
We can learn from blind Bartemaus, who, wasn't afraid to exchange his truth in order to SEE.
Mark 10:51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see"
Jesus, help us SEE, we need Your healing of our sight so that we can truly SEE You and SEE one another through Your Love. Amen..

John 15:13,15 "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends...I have called you friends..."
Human nature is to protect that for which Christ died for us to have the right and the power to lay down.
My flesh, my point of view, all my self protections, the ways I defend my ways in a world that I am suppose to be crucified to, these are ways that keep me from simply being a friend of God.
He calls me, holds out His hand and beckons me to walk with Him. And I know the price to do so is to leave all behind, and simply take hold and walk with Him, and trust that He Who loves me, Who sees me, Who knows me, will carry me faithfully through this life til I see Him face to face.
Jesus, help us simply walk with You today, and be a true friend to You. Help us stop trying to define what it all should look like, and simply let You be Who You came to be in us, and through us, Our Friend in this world. Amen.

Jesus died under our judgement. He hung, like a Door upon a hinge, offering each of us a chance to walk out of our own self condemned lives into a life of wholeness and holiness purchased by His own right standing before God.
It occurred to me today how every word of God proves true.
In His death for us, His feet had no place to stand. Nailed to the Cross, He had to press into the Cross in order to lift Himself up for every breath, for every last word and prayer He spoke on our behalf.
Revelation 20:11 states, "Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, for no place was found for them."
One day, others will be forced to stand before God, ones who stood firmly on earth will stand before the One Who was lifted up from the earth for them, and they will SEE and KNOW that they have no standing with Him.
Some of us are having to press hard against the Cross right now for every breathe.
It's worth it!
If even one comes to a place to stand before Jesus on that day, and to be counted holy and blameless before Him, its worth it.
Thank You, Jesus, for giving us standing in You not because they lived a righteous life, but because we SAW and BELIEVED You, Who IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
YOU Alone are our only place to truly stand, both here and in eternity.
JESUS, help us continue to press into You, our LORD, so that others might have a chance to truly SEE and BELIEVE You and come to know that You are LORD. Help many find a sure place to stand in You, the One who bore our judgement so that we can stand secure in Your presence. Amen.

Help us, who have leaned on You, but not fully, fall fully on You today. Let us watch what You do when there is NO ounce of trust in man, but only a heart FULLY sacrificed to You. You came Fully for us. Forgive us when we don't fully come for You.
Thank -You, Jesus, for all the countless ways You press us, shake us and mold us to become fully Yours, the ones You purchased and redeemed. Thank You for taking responsibility for making us into well done, good and faithful servants. You, alone know what You had in mind when You designed us. You, alone know how to get us to the point where we truly are ready to recieve what You meant when You said, "IT IS FINISHED!" We thank You for the finished work of who we get to become in You, Jesus, and Your faithfulness to get us there. Amen.

Where we place our heart tells so much about where we believe our home is.
I find myself needing visual reminders lately of where my REAL home is, and it's NOT here.
When I died with Christ, I got to make my home with Him, in heaven. This means that the moment I became His, I became a sojourner here, someone only passing through on my way to my REAL home.
Because I belong to Him. I get to represent Him here on earth, enjoying my time here as I share His love and fellowship with others around me.
But, because this place is not my REAL home, I don't have to live in fear and become entangled in it, or feel threatened by this world's system.
I belong to a whole other atmosphere, its called heaven! Its God's Kingdom!
I am ruled by my Father's Kingdom and I need not fear my Father's kingdom because it's built on love. It's built on love that always chooses to love me first, and meet me where I'm at (1st John 4:19), it's also built on mercy, mercy that runs towards me when I am weakest and willing to admit it (Titus 3:5), and grace, that chose to wear my sin upon Himself so that I might be made whole and clean and able to stand in His Presence in my heavenly home (Ephesians 2:8-9). The darker and darker this world becomes, the more thankful I become that this world is not my home.
Father, I pray that all my brothers and sisters will take comfort in the knowledge that we are only here for a little while, and we were never meant to feel at home in this world system. Its a temporary system built by broken people who cannot succeed unless they abide in You. Thank You for providing us a sure place to stand in You, Who IS our home. Help us remember to abide in You and to offer hope to others who may need help finding the Open Door to Your House at this dark hour. We love You. Thank you for being such a Good Shepherd and Father to us. In Jesus name. Amen.

In the end we either represent ourselves or Christ.
Jesus knew how to stay perfectly aligned to His Father at all times, yet also perfectly outstretched towards us at the same time.
The tension He held within Him fully manifested at the Cross, where His body was held upright, yet arms outstretched wide, toward us.
Perfect righteousness hung for us all to see as a witness of what perfect love, righteousness, and God's grace towards sinful men looks like. We each get to choose for ourselves if we want to accept God's judgement upon sin that fell on His Son, or if we want to stand on our own two feet, and one day accept what falls when we literally stand before Him and admit that we saw, we knew, but we chose to stay in self representation rather than accept the gift His Son came to give in dying for our sin.
LORD, we are without excuse. You came, we witnessed, we know. Remove what hinders our hearts from fully receiving all You came to give us when You gave us Your Son. Help us realize that we have no right to stand anywhere but in You, and keep us aligned with You. Help us recieve the mercy You came to give us. In Jesus name. Amen.

Jesus, thank You for Your new mercies every morning. Thank You for implanting in me Your own JOY that gives me strength to keep my eyes in You, despite what my eyes see or my heart feels at times.
Thank You that I know, even right now, You are preparing the final touches on our home in heaven, even as You prepare the final touches on us, Your Bride here on earth.
Just as You endured the Cross set before You for the Joy set before You, there is such Joy in my heart as I set my face to seek Your face alone. In Your name, I place my hope, trust, faith, and glory. Jesus, I pray that all my brothers and sisters who You have ordained to know You, will hear Your voice above all the world and come home. Amen.

"He took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones from the brook and put them in his shepherd's pouch. His sling was in his hand, and he approached the Philistine."
1 Samuel 17:40.
"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." Ephesians 6:11
God's armor is not simply acknowledging our need for armor but actually wearing it.
Its how David, a young boy dressed only in shepherd's attire, could kill Goliath while Saul, who was covered in armor, was not willing to fight.
One was dressed in faith in self (his own armor), while the other was dressed in faith in the Living God.
When we are standing in ourselves, we can't win. And something deep inside knows it.
When the giants come, we retreat from battle.
When we are standing in Christ, we can't lose.
You will recognize those dressed in Christ, they are the ones running towards the giants.
I have been both, but I have trusted God enough times to know the thrill of those moments when He shows up in me, and slays the giant that I know I never could.
There is no greater experience than to watch the Living God win in you.
The tragedy of our day is that so many have never truly trusted God's armor.
The giants are coming.
Jesus, help us be truly ready to stand.

Abraham was called out to walk with God, by faith, towards a Promise from God he didn't fully understand or even see fulfilled during his earthly lifetime.
Yet, as He journeyed with God towards a Promised land, he began to lay hold of a greater reality, that relationship with God IS our Promise, and that the territory we claim as we walk with Him, we get get to keep eternally.
Like Abraham and like Zacchaeus, we are each invited by God to walk towards a Promise we don't get to fully understand this side of heaven, but yet we get to experience a greater surety than can be found any other place, the knowledge that we are beloved children of God.
We can choose to be children of men, and try and carve out a firm place here in the world.
Or, we can become children of God, and stand in Him firmly, letting ourselves become sojourners here during this brief life.
"But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city." Hebrews 11: 16

Has your grave been opened? Mine has.
And because it has, I am free to behold the glory and grace of who I am fully redeemed in our LORD!
And I am free to see the potential in everyone, even those who have been bound in a grave for a very long time, and whose bones may be "very dry."
Heaven forbid that my awareness of another's tomb becomes greater than my awareness of my own empty tomb.

Jesus, thank You for the hope in knowing that You are STILL rolling away stones, releasing captives, and setting us free. Forgive us when we fail to see life outside of our tombs. Fill us with fresh awareness that we are ALIVE IN YOU! Let us RUN out of these tombs, and show the world what a church, fully alive in You looks like! Amen

"The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:9-13
The longer I walk with Christ and the more I see things unravel in me and in this world, the clearer I understand the sacred truth if what Jesus truly accomplished in me, in each of us who have truly believed Him and allowed ourselves to be made new by Him.
Darkness comes, its inescapable, yet even when my own reason says, "I can't understand, I can't see a way, " He gets up in me.
And I am suddenly propelled by Life in me that I know is not from me.
His Light overcomes the darkness in me.
That is the greatest miracle.
It's how I know His light has and will overcome the darkness in the whole world.

Hey ladies,
Here is the latest teaching from Becoming Ewe 2.0.

We only have 1 more week to go in this series!

I started two new things this week,
First was actually a re-start to teaching back in Perfect Mess.
We meet in room 103 at FBC Huffman at 9:15 am on Sundays if you ever want to join us in person.
Second, I started my new job as executive director of the pregnancy center in Dayton.
I hope to soon have a prayer day and time for us where we can come and pray there for our families, community, state and world!
What an AMAZING time it is to be a child of God!
The only other time as exciting was when Jeaus walked here on earth!
Now He is walking with us, in us and preparing us to walk out of this world and straight into His Presence!
Only He can shepherd us on such a journey!

I love you ladies and so honored and blessed to be on this journey with you.

His and yours,

Rhonda

What an appropriate devotion for such a time as this.
Oh, how simple it is to stay in our safe places.
The beautiful truth is that God's grace has paved out room for us to either stay or go.
But, oh how we must bless His heart when we go, when choose stretching over staying.
Sometimes I wonder if these moments are captured in some sort of heavenly baby book where each moment we reach past ourselves to become more unified with Christ is memorialized in our Father's heart and our heavenly home.
Jesus, help us become more concerned with becoming Yours than ours. Give us the faith to let go and choose the best choice, You are always our best choice. Amen.

What do you get when you take the Psalm 23 and mix it with scriptures that speak of Christ's return?
We get a Shepherd that is leading us all the Way through the ancient gates, straight into His Presence forevermore, as only He can.
Come to Perfect Mess, the bible study, whether in person or via YouTube.
We are meeting in adult one room at FBHC Huffman at 9:15 on Sunday mornings and the YouTube lessons can be followed along anytime at www.perfectmess.org.

Yep, its true!
We will be meeting at 9:15 am and although we normally meet in room 103, we may meet in the adult One room (just a couple doors down) if we get more people so that we have more room to spread out.
I will leave a welcome sign outside the door to let you know where we are.
Bring your own coffee!
Oh, and your Bible too!
We are finishing our series on Becomimg Ewe 2.0 and preparing to begin a new series called The Coming: The Rapture and the Revelation where we study on what the Bible has to say about Jesus second coming.

While resting and recouping today today, I've been going through old journals from my first few years as a believer.
How humbling!
How refreshing!
Remembering those feelings of not knowing where exactly where I was headed, but yearning so strongly to run full speed ahead towards Jesus.
How I wanted to know "the way", how I didn't yet understand that He had already become my "Way."
And now, after years of walking with Him, falling down, getting back up, learning to trust, learning to fall forward, in grace..
I long to run, full speed ahead towards Jesus, no longer afraid of all the unknowns in me or Him, but embracing fully the One Who holds, Who has always held my heart ♥ tightly in the palm on His hands.

To go along with the post before, Jesus here in Luke 12:4-5 doesn't seem to be afraid or encouraging us to be afraid of what will happen to our bodies.
He encourages us to fully entrust our lives to Him, believing that God knows every hair on our head.
He says, "don't be afraid of those who want to kill you."
As I consider these verses and the huge waves of fear I see engulfing so many right now, I think about 1 John 4:8, "There is no fear in love but perfect love drives out fear..."
We can't love others and fear them at the same time.
Either we die to ourselves and our own sense of self preservation and place ourselves fully in Christ, and let Him love through us, or we stand in fear, conjuring up some self made idea of what love is, all the while trying to insulate ourselves from the true thing.
It terrifies me when I think of the consequences of what we do when we try to keep ourselves safe from God's definition of love.
Jesus, please help us love perfectly, as You did, and give us the courage to conform to Your definition of perfect love, even when we don't know how and it scares us. Make us ready to stand before You. Amen.

It takes some fortitude during this time to choose life and blessing.
Every voice is screaming around us, "death, destruction, you must protect yourself at all cost!"
God let's us choose what our destiny will be, yet He clearly tells us in advance, unless you forcefully choose life and blessing, you are not choosing Me. "...for He IS your life and length of days.." Duet.30:20.
The word choose in Hebrew is a verb that suggest not a arbitrary whim, but a thorough examination of the situation. The verb suggests trying, testing, or joining.
As I read the definition, I clearly see Christ's outstretched hand, asking us to join Him, test Him, try Him, and as we do, we get to discover Life and blessing.
Our natural sheep like inclination is to choose death, and curse, letting fear be our dictators, and self perceived preservation be our path.
It takes Holy gumption to reach in the polar opposite direction and choose Life instead.
It takes Christ life in us, which He freely offered and which we only discover as we forcefully reach out, disobeying our natural instincts for self preservation, and choose life anyway.
Perhaps God has allowed this dark time in history to discover who truly has the gumption to choose Him. We don't often see the truth about ourselves and about what we truly believe about Him until our hands are forced through choice.
Jesus, help us have the courage to face the truth about ourselves during this dark time and choose You, knowing we are choosing Life and blessing as we do. Give us the holy gumption to let go of our lives so we can place them securely in Your hands. Amen.

We live in a time when it's so easy to treat our spiritual life like we do the rest of life.
Fast food, constant streams of comfort, distraction and entertainment, anything we need and want is at our fingertips.
It is so easy to try and cram God into the mix and pat ourselves on the back for having spent a "quiet time" with Him.
It's so easy to siphon off from someone else's spiritual life and never really discover the richness of what your own can taste like.
When I was a little girl, I would save my already been chewed gum, just incase I missed any flavor from it and wanted to try and eek out the last of it after my tastebuds had cooled off.
I can't imagine anyone prefering one of my already been chewed gum globs over their own freshly unwrapped piece.
What a joy it is to take those first few chews that are bursting with flavor!
That's what is waiting for us in God's Word!
Psalm 34:8 says, "Taste and see that the LORD is good, blessed are those who take refuge in Him."
Jesus is often referred to as our, "Bread of Life." Who can resist a warm hunk of just out of the oven bread, with crunchy crust and lots of butter?
That's what it is like when we sit before God's Word and dine for ourselves. We get to taste who He is to us, not the filtered out version He is through someone else.
He has special and specific joy and nourishment for each of us each day.
Oh, how I pray we let Him feed us straight from His hand!
I love listening and learning from other teachers and love to teach myself, but my greatest times are when it is just Jesus and I, alone at a table for two, and He is feeding me from the most exquisitely laid out feast, specially chosen for me. Oh, how I wish every person in the world could experience such joy!

Choosing Life Entry 1

When you choose death, Life stops.  It cannot go on to produce what it is meant to in every aspect of your life.

Death stops, shatters and scatters, giving off a false sense of multiplication which people can mistake for life, but there is no weight to it.

What is more REAL; one-million pieces of glitter or one diamond? Which holds weight and value?
