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)

God is building His church and the gates of hell will not overcome it.

When we see the confusion in the world, take heart because the confusion in the world comes when the clarity in the Spirit comes.

The enemy of our souls is pleases as long as we tolerate broken down walls. Yet when we begin to close the gaps, and allow God's Spirit to truly come and fill in every torn down place between and within us, the enemy tries to throw us into confusion and turmoil.

"Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall adorn yourself with tambourines and shall go forth in the dance of the merrymakers." Jeremiah 34:4

Sometimes the chaos and confusion in the world are the very things that help remind us that we are NOT of this world. And who knows what God can do when His Bride finally remembers the truth of who she has always been in Him.

What joy bursts through the sorrow
As heaven's Light invades
And the Way is seen most Narrow
Life carving through the haze
Eternal souls awaken
To hear Christ's final call
While all earth bows to the chaos
Christ's Bride rises through it all.
Her gown knit together
With His Precious Blood and Light
As earth's dark backdrop beckons
Her glory to shine most bright
No darkness can restrain her
Oneness to the One
Who overcame her darkness
And by His Blood her heart He won

I often wonder if we cheapen the Truth by our insistence that our sins are forgiven without always fully acknowledging the weight of what our sins cost Christ.

It is good news that Jesus came for us, for our lives would mean nothing without His coming.

We would live and die, never connect to the One for Whom we were made and are complete in.

I don't know that we will fully grasp what a weight He bore on that Cross until we stand in His Presence, wrapped in the wonder of His Holiness and at last are able to SEE with our eyes and understand in our hearts that we, in our flesh, are the furthest thing from all He is. We will touch His scars and suddenly KNOW the price paid for our admittance into His Presence, and we will KNOW that we have surely been loved with an everlasting love.

He is either your King now or He isn't.

If He isn't, please don't waste a moment letting the world for which He died stand between you one more minute.

He loves you.

He chose you.

He knows you.

He wants you to come home.

The only thing standing between you lies in your own heart.

John 17:24-27 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” (Jesus)

As Christians, we don't have to fear those who rule over us for we are citizens of a greater Kingdom.

We must not look to how people who don't know God respond to those in authority as our litmus of how we are to respond.

Our aim to honor our King, Jesus.

Because of Him, we are free, no matter who has earthly bound, temporary authority over this land we are standing on.

We must remember that God is sovereign.

Who knows that He isn't using those in government over us to separate the sheep from the goats, to make a distinction between those who truly know and honor Him as LORD and those who merely live in pretense of knowing Him.

We are bondservants to our LORD, no matter who is over us.

Because of this, we can rejoice and find hope.

Our aim is not to bring heaven to earth, but to bring those on earth to heaven.

We will very soon stand before our King and all that will matter is who we brought with us.

We are free to love everyone, to honor God's image in every man, and to believe that, no matter what we see with our eyes, we are citizens of a Greater Kingdom that, through love, already overcame this world.

We are living in a day when God is clarifying His Bride, preparing her in righteousness to stand before Him.

Do not set your eyes on those who have set their hope in this world and its earthly domain.

Set your eyes and heart on Christ and let Him transform you into the Bride who is worthy to be called His Beloved.

Fear God.

Honor those whom He has placed in authority over you.

Men did not place them there, God did.

If you have failed to honor God by not praying for those over you and honoring them as God's sovereign choice, repent and return to the Lordship of Christ.

Don't miss your eternal home for a temporary, earthly, dying world.

Pray for those governing over us, and trust that God, in His Sovereignty, is always working everything for His glory and our good.

Someone once said, "prayer is to revival what labor is to childbirth."

I recently held our brand new grandson, only a couple of days old.

The little life we witnessed squirming in his constrained compartment just below his mommas ribs became manifest to us all once she endured the pain necessary to push him out.

And because of what she endured, we now get to witness on the outside what she alone was experiencing on the inside.

Life begins as a tiny spark, and multiplies and multiplies until it comes to fruition, and becomes all God had in mind when He first sent the first spark.

Prayer, genuine prayer that connects the Father's heart with ours, begins as a tiny spark. The Light of Christ in us works His way in and through us, until He multiplies to such an extent that what began on the inside with just a tiny spark in one true saint's heart becomes evident on the outside as Christ's Spirit breaks forth and revival begins.

What a miracle that Christ invites us in to travail with Him until His will and purposes are brought forth through us, His bride.

There was a time when Abraham, after following God for some time, and yet still not seeing God's promise of a son fulfilled, questioned God. He wanted to know if God would fulfill His promise to him.
Here is God's response,
"And he brought him outside and said, "look toward heaven, and number the stars if you are able to number them." Then he said, "so shall your offspring be."
"And he believed the LORD and he counted it him as righteousness." Genesis 15:5-6

I often think about this moment when God used twinking stars, like bursts of hope breaking through the dark backdrop of the night sky, to represent us, His children, the offspring of Abraham.

Life begins as spark of light and grows under the cover of darkness until the dark can no longer contain it.

What if, just below the dark place, life is waiting for us to allow the spark of Life, Himself, to burst through us, and set the darkness around us ablaze with His glory?

What if revival is up to us?

Oh, LORD, what can we say?

Have mercy on us, our nation has broken Your heart and become an abomination to You.

Yet, even now, we know that You are able to turn our hearts back towards You.

You are right when You say,

"None is righteous, no, not one;  no one understands; no one seeks for God.
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
    no one does good, not even one.”Their throat is an open grave;
    they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
“Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
“Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known.”
“There is no fear of God before their eyes" Romans 3:10-18

We can't even turn back towards You without You. Forgive us for fearing not getting our way more than we have feared You.
We deserve what we get as a nation, we deserve the Cross.
Yet, You came for us, You took our Cross, and even now are still reaching out for us.
Thank-You for being our hope, even now.
Please help us turn our eyes away from looking at worthless things and give us life in Your ways.
Forgive us for thinking a nation or a man is our solution.
Please help us remember that You alone are our answer.
You looked at us and called us lost sheep without a shepherd.
We are sheep headed for slaughter without You.
Be our Shepherd, lead our hearts back towards You.
Have mercy on us, O Jesus, our Shepherd.
Please lead us back to You.
Forgive us for judging others, give us rest in Your name, Jesus....our Salvation.
Bring us into Your Salvation, our only Salvation, our only Hope. Amen

Hear, o storm tossed one,

I Am with you.

You feel weak because your strength is gone yet you have not even begun to see and experience My strength.

At the end of you, I Am.

The journey from you to Me is a pilgrim's journey.

I alone know the Way for I Am the Way.

As you walk with Me, fully trusting in My Sovereignty, what looks like a dry valley suddenly becomes a pool of Living Water.

I do not fail.

I am leading you forth in My strength, each moment of trust in Me being built up to a place of greater strength.

Until you arrive finally in My fullest Presence, My strength combined with your trust will have led you all the way home.

This is a sacred moment for our nation.

It may not seem like it.

Yet, when a whole nation's eyes are suddenly awakening to the truth that even the ground we are standing on is not where our hope and security are found, that unrighteousness abounds, behind it all, there is greater Voice crying out.

Can you hear it?

"Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
"All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them." John 10:7-8

Sometimes every other door closing is leading us towards the One we are meant to walk through.

Sometimes seeing the frailty of all we placed our hope in is the gift we need to compel us to find a better hope---a lasting one.

It's time to head home and realize that our home was never about a place carved out on earth's dust, but returning to a place in our Father's heart.

Who knows that all heaven is not rejoicing over this very moment.

Why not join in?

Let's not miss it for the world.

Jesus, You are our blessing, and knowing You is our victory in this world. Let us keep our eyes on You, fully and trust You are working all things for our eternal good. One day we will stand before You and this world will seem like a distant dream. Help us live in thr Reality of You and let our lives reflect Your glory during our brief stay here, trusting You have got us and You are SO good. Amen.

I pray we each hear the bells ring out today, "I love you, I Am with you, I love you, I Am with you."

As the kingdom of noise comes crashing down all around us, trying to distract, deter, and confuse, let's determine to let our LORD's still, small voice ring out all the more.

"Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short." Revelation 12:12

What we hear is a direct result of the atmosphere we live in. For children of God, we listen and respond to God's Kingdom because He is our atmosphere. We are in this world yet our hearts and minds are already resting with Him in heavenly places.

No fury in this world can detract us from the One Who has furiously poured out His love on us.

He loves us and is with us, and nothing can shake us from His Presence.

Fury or furious love?

Open your heart today to hear His bells ringing out over you, "I love you. I Am with you."

Could it be that the great test is maintaining our stance as conquerors, even while every thing around us seems to look to the contrary?

The darkness is great, yet I am STILL abiding in Him Who is Light.

The kingdom of noise is shaking like thunder, yet I am still being led by His still, small Voice.

Every man seems to flaunting his own robe, yet I am riding on the coat tails of the King of Glory.

It is in the stench of death, chaos, and darkness that the aroma of Christ becomes sweetest, and rises to the throne of our Father, making all heaven glad in the wonder that Christ's offering is still alive, bearing fruit down here on earth in us.

However steep your climb today, remember that we are riding on the coattails of the King of Glory, a conquering King, Whose victory was already secured long ago. We cannot fail as we rest in Him and let Him carry us straight into His own triumph.

The future of our nation does not depend on a president, it depends on us, the Church.

Just as the Isrealites continually fell away from God by worshipping the idols of this world, so we easily fall for the idols of this world.

God would send judgement on them to allow them to experience the fruit of their ways. Blaming our leadership for our current situation is futile.

If God is our LORD, we ought to pray and pray from repentant hearts that are clean to stand in God's Presence and be heard by Him.

If you are blaming our countrie's problems on anyone else, let be today be the day you turn into the mirror of Truth and recognize that the power to heal our land lies not in hoping in man or the flesh, but in Christ Alone.

I have heard it said that we get the leaders we deserve. We each deserve a Cross and Crucifixion for how we have dishonored our LORD, yet Jesus took that for us.

If we were willing to trust Him to take up or sins in such a manner that we are eternally united with Him, how can we not trust Him with such a simple area of healing our land?

It's time to repent and pray, America.

Jeremiah 17:5-7
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
    who draws strength from mere flesh
    and whose heart turns away from the Lord.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
    they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
    in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.

Jesus, forgive us for trusting in mere men, help us truly repent and turn our hearts fully towards You. Help us to truly honor You as LORD. Amen.

The pregnancy center where I was director recently closed. I've been passing along items that other ministries could use and as I came across this box full of 12 week old baby models, my heart was touched.
The only reason I ever became involved with pregnancy centers is because I needed healing and restoration from my own three abortions.
Jesus not only healed, but redeemed what I once believed was impossible.
As I look at these babies now, I can't help but think of the millions and millions of babies (many full grown by now) in heaven who are still waiting to be acknowledged by mommas here on earth.
Opening my heart to my three has represented my greatest journey through Christ's fields of grace that I've ever known
Only He can turn a grave into grace.
Abortion is such a travesty because it takes two lives for one.
Our babies die, and us mommas are left having to harden our hearts to protect them from the awareness of what we've done. They die physically but we die spiritually.
And yet, there was One Who placed His One Life upon a Cross to knowingly make a Way to lead us all back to wholeness, not only with Himself, but also with our babies.
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!..." 1 John 3:1
In Christ, we are fully reconciled to not only to our children in heaven, but we are reconciled AS children of heaven.
As I look at this box full of babies now, my heart is shifted from thinking of all the babies lost here on earth through abortion to all those waiting to be born to our Father's heart today. Children, born of God, made brand new in His Amazing Grace.

Oh what senseless paths we wander
Searching, seeking, worn
While His hands are ever reaching
Come, My child, be born..

On a side note, there is a conference happening next week for anyone who needs healing such I did as well as for those who want to know more about how to help those of us who have had abortions.

A tree has no idea or even concept of what it will become. A seed falls into fertile soil and begins expanding outside itself, becoming something altogether beyond what it would ever be otherwise.

A seed wishing and striving to become a tree will never arrive.

The seed that surrenders to the soil, the water, and Light will become exactly what it is intended, while also bearing fruit and seedlings to allow the expansion to continue far beyond what the tree itself could ever see or imagine.

God knows who we are to become and in releasing and immersing ourselves in His Presence and care, we cannot help but expand and become more than we could ever hope or imagine.

Jesus hung lifeless on a tree, yet in doing so, He opened a Way for each who are willing to become trees planted by living waters, oaks of righteousness that never cease to bear fruit (Psalm 1).

God is always good news, no matter what. We may look around and see only Winter, yet He knows that He, Alone, is our Spring.

Sometimes it takes being reminded of the harshness of Winter to set our hearts longing for the fullness of Spring.

Jesus, You ARE our Spring!

Because You rose, we can be sure that we, who are Your harvest, will too.

Even now, we can hear Your Voice calling, "arise and shine, for your Light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you." Isaiah 60:1

We are rising to You, our LORD, and we know that soon we will arrive with You to the Everlasting Spring You purchased for us through Your Cross.

Our hearts fill with hope, hope beyond this world as we await to see Your face.

There are many revelations going forth at this time in history. It seems that we feel that by knowing what is going on, our hearts, minds and souls may find rest.

However, there is only Way to true rest and that is in knowing that the Lamb of God has surely born all our sin.

1 John 4:18, "There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out all fear, because fear has to do with punishment; and the one fearing has not been perfected in love."

When darkness comes we receive the true gift of SEEING the truth about ourselves, that the Light of Christ is in us, and that it is enough or that it isn't.

We are wise to use this time to reconcile our hearts to Him Who is still willing to pour forth His Light into our hearts, even now.

John 1:5 "The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it."

Jesus Light HAS overcome all the darkness in us, and in the world. And once His Light shines forth in and through us, there is no darkness that can remain to shake us.

We, God's children, and the ones for whom Christ died to reconcile to Himself, become unshakable in His love and Light, knowing that truly NOTHING can separate us from Him because He already overcame everything that ever could when He defeated sin.

"Romans 5:20, "But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound..."

The greatest force in our world right now is God's grace poured forth through Christ's redemption of our sins. Whether we see the darkness or the grace points towards the truth about us.

Jesus, help us today to SEE You. TRUST You, and RECEIVE You fully, knowing that YOUR GRACE is here and truly HAS and IS overcoming. Thank You for giving us Your Light to shine in the midst of darkness. We can't wait to see You overcome in us and through us, even as You have already overcome this world. Amen.

It seems like every one of my days begins the same. I wake up with a mind going a million different directions and a desire to get to to Jesus as quickly as possible to find peace, direction, and discernment.

And He comes.

And at once, my mind that was so ready for answers becomes suddenly bathed in Him, who IS my Answer.
And I find that, despite whatever is before me, all is well and at peace.

This world is full of never-ending chaos, and we can easily become perplexed and overwhelmed by our inadequacy to control even our tiniest corner of it.

Yet, there is a river that runs straight through all the chaos. It's the river of Life, and once we simply immerse ourselves in it, we are overcome with the realization of what Christ meant when He said, "It is Finished."
And suddenly, our perplexing thoughts are swept away in His current of Rest, Peace, Joy. And we bathe in the Presence of the One Who already overcame all that has ever or will ever try to overcome us.

You ever think about the fact that we call our social media outlets "feeds."

"They are spots and blemishes carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you." 2 Peter 2:13

Be careful who you dine with these days.

Jesus has invited every one of us to dine with Himself.

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me" Revelation 3:20

We may blame our world circumstances on others, yet we will each surely sit before our Perfect God one day and answer for all that we partook in while knowingly ignoring His dinner invitations.

They say, we are what we eat. Never has it been more apparent whose table we've dined at then now.

I encourage everyone today to read 2 Peter and repent of how who we have allowed ourselves to dine with.

Someone today needs to hear these words and remember that they are deeply loved, not because of anything they have or have not done, but simply because God can't help but love His kids

The moment we recognize that we are nothing more than a child of God is the same moment we realize that magnitude of what it means to be nothing less than a child of God.

When we arrive home and all is made plain, we will find that anything good that sprung out of us originated from roots that were firmly planted in Him, our Father and our source-the One from Whom all real love springs.

Had a wonderful day praying for our world, nation, community, and families to return to Christ like never before.
As I pray, I was convicted of how fearful I still am over my children.
It seems like I often pray for them from fear instead of faith. So I am using these guidelines to help me pray and stand on God's Word over them, and not pray based on what I see, but on what God sees. In truth I cannot see, but only trust the One Who sees me and my children.
I wanted to share these guidelines as I know there must be others of us out there who need this as badly as I do.
This is from the book Prayer Portions by Sylvia Gunter. I cannot recommend this book enough, it is my go to for when I feel spiritually stuck.
We will have a shorter lesson tomorrow so that we have time to pray.

Love y'all,

Rhonda

We can be very busy doing and yet not be doing anything for God.

A true follower of Christ can't help but manifest the character and nature of the One he is following.

When Christ walked the earth, He left a trail of goodness and mercy behind, demonstrating to the world the unmistakable character of God.

As His followers, we do the same.

The examples James gives us of Abraham and Rahab personify not two people who got busy doing what they felt God wanted them to do, but two people who were literally following God because they believed He is REAL and therefore God, Himself, was able to lead them straight to His will

One is man using his own interpretation of God to try and present Him an offering which God will never contain.
The other is God letting Himself move through man, creating His own glory and using man as His container.

One is man trying to carry God.
The other is God carrying man.

How humbling it is to finally admit that the only thing we can truly offer God is our faith in Him and our willingness to let Him be Himself through us.

Yet, He dwells with us, not because we are worthy, but when we finally SEE the gaping hole left in us by our unworthiness, we make room for Him, the only One who is worthy to receive glory.

We are all sold, either to evil or to righteousness.

The greatest deception of all time is that we are free while we remain in sin.

"For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold under sin" Romans 7:14

Only in Christ are we free, yet there was a payment to secure our freedom, for there is cost involved for each of our lives

"..for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body." 1 Corinthians 6:20

We are all sold.

Either to evil, which we alone will bear the ultimate price.

Or to Christ, Who already bore our price on the Cross.

We are wrong to think, outside of Christ, there is freedom.

A lion caged in a zoo is not free.
A human caged in sin is not free.

Christ became the open Door to each cage that has kept us bound up into the limited places our depraved nature kept us (see John 10).

Only in Him are we able to exit the door to sin and enter the adventure of who we truly can become in His Holy righteousness.

Thank-You, Jesus for setting us free in You! Amen.

"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36

Is this journey too great for you?

If not, than I wonder if you are truly walking with the LORD.

"..What are you doing here..?" (1 Kings 19:13)

We search for God throughout our pilgrim journey here, while He uses our journey to search us.

When we are at our weakest, He calls us up to the mountain and let's those things that could easily destroy us to pass by us, yet He is not in the midst of those things.

He let's them.pass by, perhaps so we might recall what comes next, the greater power of His still, small Voice.

Sometimes the great winds pass by us, or we are shaken by the earth moving under us, or we fear the fire raging all around us.

But those things, which represent what could easily destroy us, prepare our ears to come forth towards the Voice that will never destroy us.

When God asks, "what are you doing here?," He is faithfully already leading us to the place He has called us to be, while also becoming our Living Way to that place.

If we don't ever come to realize that God made us for His for His glory and enjoyment, we will spend our lives making a god out of our own purpose and enjoyment.

He is either making us, or we are busy trying to make him into something He can never be; a god made in man's image.

"However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands." Acts7:48

Until we come home to the roots from which each of us were sprung to life from, we will spend our lives trying make a life apart from Life, Himself.

What a joy comes when we finally rest ourselves in the rich soil of His love and Sovereignty over us, and allow ourselves to become who we were always created to be, His!

"But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: fear not, for I have called you by name; you are Mine." Isaiah 43:1

"When man wants to inhabit a place, he builds a home
When God wants to inhabit a place, He builds a man."

This is a quote from our lesson tomorrow in Perfect Mess. We will begin a new series that is called, HIS, and is based on understanding God as our Father.

For those of you participating on-line, we will have some discussion questions which I will post with the video tomorrow.

I also have written homework, just like we did for Beloved Bride, which I can email to you or I will have copies next week for those who are coming in person.

Please Private Message me your email if you wish to receive the bible study.

Happy Feast of TRUMPETS! Time to prepare our hearts for coming home fully into our Father's eternal love.

Love you, my beautiful sisters!

Good reminder!

This weekend marks the beginning of the feast of trumpets, a celebration that many Hebrews have associated with the return of Messiah.

It also is a time of great repentance and preparation for meeting Him face to face.

We, as Christians, look forward to Christ's return for us and are wise to be very mindful that He could appear to receive us at any moment.

It is never too late to examine our hearts and make sure that we are ready for His appearance.

As Matthew 7:21 points out, not everyone who professes Christ will enter His kingdom, but only those who do His will.

As we can see in the church today, there are many who are not doing His will. I fear they will not come home with us at His appearance and may have to endure His wrath because they failed to truly believe Him.

Or, I guess another way to say it is that I fear many are striving to do what they perceive to be His will instead of what truly is His will.

He will not dwell in temples made with human hands and much of the church has done much damage trying to lead from human strategy instead of simply trusting God and letting Him extend His arms through His found children to His lost ones.

Forgive us, LORD.

What is His will?

" For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day." John 6:40

What is harder to do something or to believe something, and live like you actually believe it?

If the whole professing church truly believed God and lived in such a way that the world was convinced that we believe, much more of the world would believe too.

The fact that so our world is so lost leads me to wonder if many who profess Christ are actually truly lost.

My prayer is that many will spend this time, just before His coming, searching hearts and preparing. I pray that many more will arise and shine with us at that blessed moment when He returns to take us home.

Let us repent and truly come home.

This scripture has been on my heart lately. Sometimes we are waiting to grow up in Christ, when often He may be waiting for us to grow down, and acknowledge ourselves as His children who know nothing more than to trust their Father's heart for them.

The difference between an adult and a child is that a child is still under the care and responsibility of their father. They are in the season of life where the ultimate responsibility for their lives is carried on their father's shoulders. A father's name and legacy is bound up in the lives of his children.

In the bible, God over and over again refers to us as His children. He never calls us to grow up into self sufficient human beings, but to stay children whose being is forever dependent on our Father's love for us, and provision for our lives. He willingly allowed His name and reputation to be bound up with ours.

The degree to which we understand Whose we are will determine the degree to which we truly apprehend who we are.

As children of God, we are free to REST in our Father's care, knowing He IS faithfully caring for us. He is doing all the heavy lifting on our part and we are free to enjoy our journey here on earth living close to the heart of our Father.

Could it be that we are living in the midst of two very different realities being played out before us?

And, could it be that what we see and experience are a result of who we are, not necessarily our circumstances surrounding us?

For those in Christ, all we see is Christ, and even the pain, the uncertainty, the loss, and confusion make us more aware of Him to whom we love most.

This is our blessing, holding fast to Him who IS our life.

Like a tree, we have broken through the dark soil and know nothing more than to keep reaching for the light, while drinking the water that He provides in His sovereignty.

As we reach higher, we expand upward and outward, causing fruit to burst through our branches without any effort on our part.

This is our payment for belonging to the Living God. We get to be alive in Him here on earth as we become living displays of His splendor.

The world looks to physical payment, for horizontal reach, not realizing nothing true, real or lasting abides in the horizontal.

Those who do not know God are paid with everlasting thirst for they constantly reach for that which can never satisfy, all the while resenting those who are satisfied.

That is their curse, and even their thirst is a display of God's mercy for it ever points them to the One Who came to quench it.

There are two realities happening all around us every moment and we are granted the freedom to choose which will be ours.

Only one leads to life and blessing.

Lord, help us choose You. Amen

" This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life.." Duet.30:19-20

I have a card taped to my bathroom mirror that shows a cattipillar staring up at a butterfly in flight saying, "you will never catch me up in one of those."

We stay so earthbound yet, all the while God is calling us higher, and using things of dust to do it.

Even now, do we not feel the tightening of earth's cocoon around us? The constraining, the pushing and the pulling, causing what was once solid in us to melt into a malleable substance, a clay that God can use to fashion us into His own heavenly creation.

While we strive and strain to maintain some semblance of the form we had spent our whole lives building, He is using each one of our movements to bind us into a cocoon of His design.

We resist. Yet He even uses our resistance as part of His building process.

The caterpillar will become the butterfly.

It is the work of His hands that ordains it.

We will feel more unfamiliar to ourselves than we have ever been, all the while becoming something altogether new.

We will surely succumb to His building process.

The cocoon that constrains us will ultimately become the womb that is re-creating us.

And in His perfect timing, we will emerge and gaze in awe at His handiwork.

Most of us say, "I must overcome my sin nature."
It is absurd to think we can ever accomplish that which it cost our LORD'S life to accomplish.

We cannot overcome sin.

However, we can rest in the One Who already overcame and in so doing, we will find that His victory is ours.

A newborn child's first and only assignment is to fully respond to that one from whose body he or she was just taken.

We were taken out of the side of Christ. And our lives now are lived in ever increasing dependence upon the One from whom we were first born..

There is never a moment when we grow independent of Him, but there are millions of tiny moments when our old nature butts up against the new Life in us, and we must decide to whom we belong.

Only in Christ do we get to stay children forever.
Our identity is that of a child of God, rested in knowing the One from Whom their lives have sprung.

The fleshly life adheres to a horizontal goal, with eyes ever stretching forward, looking for victories here on earth.

The Spirit life is ever looking upward, and like trees with ever widening circles, we expand as we reach upward and we are widened in the Life that we are ever reaching up towards.

I find it no coincidence that our LORD died on a tree. His life poured out here in the horizontal to release all who are willing to join Him in the vertical.

We are born into a wilderness, with no real idea of where we are going. Yet we try anyway, building castles out of sand, playing these games with ourselves, " I won't kick yours over if you don't kick mine."

Yet, as we struggle and strain, we hear a voice that calls out to us, "come follow Me, I hold the pattern to who you truly are."

The struggle commences.
Am I willing to leave to leave the security of the fragile known to head towards the possibility of solidarity in the unknown?

It's so much easier to continue protecting sandcastles.

Yet, His Voice calls and the longer we hear it, the more we somehow feel the rushing within us, that knows there is more, that believes we are more.

And suddenly our senses are overwhelmed by the adventure that unfolds in His Voice, and we awaken to who we really are, and who He's always known us to be yet we've been too afraid to acknowledge.

And unstand at once that we truly are children of God.

The adventure begins.

We will tread unknown waters
We part endless seas
We will lose ourselves in this adventure
And be fully found in Thee.

A new wave comes and my instinct is to begin clamping down on all that's precious around me and holding on for dear life. Only to end up exhausted and unprepared to handle the next wave coming towards me.

I am tired of the waves.

And humbled by all the ways they leave me so vulnerable and exposed.

I find myself thinking of Paul, as he held on to anything that could keep him afloat after the ship wrecked on his way to Rome.

He knew God had a plan, he never faltered in trusting that God's plan would prevail, no matter what hindered.

Each new wave rising up against me seems to illicit a wrestling match within my soul, a match between trusting myself or trusting God.

Even though I know Who will always win, my heart breaks at my own resistance.

How can I still be so restless in His hands?

Rest comes when I, once again, hold up my white flag and give Him the only thing any of us ever can, my faith.

"I trust You, Jesus"

Suddenly the sea within me is calm.

And although the ocean around me roars, I know I am safe.

Jesus, thank You for all the waves, the shaking, the wrestling matches You entrust in our lives. You, Alone, know what needs to be washed away from us so that we might stand in solidarity with You. Amen.

I have noticed a phenomenon happening around me lately, branches, even large ones falling to the ground.

Some of them, so large that they had many smaller branches sprouting off them.

I caught myself paying attention before I walk out my door as not to be pummeled by one of them.

I recently looked up and noticed that the branches falling were those who were not reaching the top, perhaps they were draining the resources from those who were.

It made me think of this verse,

"He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful." John 15:2

I find it fascinating how God even allows nature to confirm what He is doing in His children.

We are going through a time when we cannot tolerate those low lying branches anymore, the ones that are only interested in reaching horizontal instead of the vertical.

We simply don't have the strength to. We need the strength of the Vertical, we need Christ's strength and we feel it.

It's never fun to be pruned, yet as I look up and notice even my trees witnessing around me about what God is doing, I can't help but find such beautify in it all

Anything that helps us see Jesus more is beautiful.

He knows when those vertical branches are robbing our strength to reach for Him in the vertical.

He is such a faithful Gardener.

We are very aware that we are sinners, however it's time to become even more aware that we are Holy.

To be sin aware keeps me aware of myself.

To be holy, I must stay aware of Christ.

He must increase and I must decrease.

It's time to wholly wrap ourselves in the Holiness of God!

He is coming.

And to be dressed in anything less is a complete affront to the One who paid such a high price for our wedding garment.

I wrote a whole Bible study on sheep and have studied them extensively.

They are completely defenseless creatures, except their propensity to stick together as one flock when danger is near.

When the wolves come, their aim is to cause the sheep to scatter from one another so that they are easier to pick off.

Jesus is coming SOON, and the enemy is using the same strategy as the wolf. He seeks to divide us and cause us to leave the security that our Good Shepherd provides, and to scatter and scoot from those around us.

Don't you see it?

Open your eyes.

Whose voice is louder in your heart? The Shepherd's or the those who would divide us from the Shepherd and one another?

How sad it would be for those who have been running so well for so long to forfeit the race here at the last mile.

Please search your heart.

We would be wise to pay attention to this old Sunday school song that seems meant for this, our last and darkest hour.

"Be careful little eyes what you see.
Be careful little eyes what you see.
For our Father up above is looking down with Love.
So be careful little eyes what you see."

Soon, very soon, we will stand before Him and all that looks so real right now will suddenly all seem like a dream.

Let us remember what is TRULY REAL, even as we wait to made TRULY WHOLE at His appearing.

Remember that, "we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12

Our brothers are not our enemies. The enemy is our emeny and we are wise to search our own hearts and evacuate any place in us that has allowed him any room.

Pray, from God's Word, with His heart.

The only way a lamb can stand victoriously against a wolf as it sticks close to the Shepherd.

Jesus, forgive us for letting the threats of darkness around us drive us away from You and one another. Forgive us for wanting to be right more than to be Righteous. Please give is eyes to SEE who the real enemy is, and guard us in Your Love. Amen.

Now that we are so seeing the world unravel around us, it is becoming very popular to speculate about when the LORD's return is.

However, Jesus never told us to KNOW, He told us to GO, and share the good news about His coming to save us.

If I truly believed I would stand before my King and Master any moment now, I might be busy about what He has clearly said to do, as opposed to when He is returning.

Sometimes I think we use His soon return as an excuse to stay behind our doors, when clearly Jesus instructed us to exit our doors and get busy being about our Father's business.

Did He free us from sin? Yes.

Did He send His promised Holy Spirit? Yes.

Did He tell us clearly what to do? Yes.

Are we doing it?

Let us examine our own hearts now and come back to the simplicity of exactly what our LORD has called us to.

What are ways we can share the gospel during this time?

There was a point when Christ had to set His face towards Jerusalem, and become, what must have looked to His followers as the greatest contradiction to Who they had believed Him to be.

The One they saw transfigured on the mountain became the One crucified on a mountain.

It is sobering when the Jesus we had hoped Him to be looks completely different from who He truly is.

God on a Cross is the greatest contradiction the universe ever has or will experience.

"And I, if be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." John 12:32

Like an arrow making a direct hit to it's intended target, Jesus, lands us all in a place we've never been as we behold Him on the Cross.

He hung like a Door, inviting anyone who might walk through, to come home to who we were made to be, the people of God, each His unique, intimate expression of glory.

The testing comes and it is sobering when what we hoped would be a mountain of transfiguration instead becomes a mountain of crucifixion. When who we thought we were to be in Him turns out completely different from who He actually calls us to become.

Yet, only as we walk through the Cross do we find that we get to become the ones transfigured. We get to be walking contradictions in this world of darkness as we express His unimaginable Light.

"Because of the LORD'S great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

This is not the picture I was expecting to see of our neighborhood after Laura passed through.
But as I sit here pleasantly underwhelmed, I know there are those who are waking up to unimaginable loss.

Does this mean that the LORD had compassion on us and not them?

No.

Sometimes God's compassion is displayed by moving our storms, and sometimes it is displayed through our storms.

We were not so fortunate just three years ago when Harvey hit, and then again Imelda, just over a year later.

And as hard as it is when a storm comes and removes everything you had your security wrapped up in, we would be lying if we said we did not witness His faithfulness, and His compassion. We would be lying if we said the whole experience made us less faithful and compassionate human beings.

Sometimes the most beautiful things God does in our lives spring from our most broken moments, the moments He allows everything but Him to be consumed so that we can discover that, in Him, we are never

This picture was taken of our city, Houston, during hurricane Harvey just three years ago this month.
Our whole city was under water, and although it was terrifying and heartbreaking, there was something else happening that was beautiful.

The walls that seem to so easily erect when we settle into our nice, comfy, safety bubbles came crashing down. It was as if everyone was given a sudden call to action.

Those who flooded were forced out as those who did not flood were forced in. People who never would have talked before were suddenly risking life and limb to save one another, each of us knowing, "this could be me, this could be my child."

I find it ironic that we have another hurricane (or two) headed our way right now.

To me, it feels like a sudden re-test over lessons we seem to have forgotten so quickly.

As I thought about what we will be possibly facing this week, this scripture came to mind.

"Behold, I am doing a new thing: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." Isaiah 43:19

How quickly our once open and generous hearts seemed to have become deserts. Hearts that, without thinking, began responding to the Way just three years ago, have so quickly become a wilderness.

Like any good parent, our Father knows when to do a, "new thing," in hopes that our hearts will once again, "perceive it."

He comes and offers us a Wellsprings of Living Water on dry, hard, and barren ground. He makes stony places into highways of His Living Presence (see Isaiah 40).

I have seen who we are capable of becoming in this city, both for good and bad. How I pray that this time, we allow ourselves to see who He is capable of becoming in us, and we pass the test once and for all.

We have seen the futility of our love, it's time to witness the strength of His.

Jesus, thank You for re-tests. Thank-You for turning our hard hearts into Your highways of holiness, help us let You come in, and flood through us. Amen

It's time to come out of hiding, we are safe in our Father's love to embrace our WHOLE story, even those parts we've buried deep inside for so long.
It's time to stop believing God only loves the good parts of us. He died for ALL of us, ALL of who we each individually are.
Whether you've had an abortion or not, each of us has been affected. For every man or woman who has allowed the shame of their past to keep them from releasing their whole hearts to Christ in the present is hindering us all from seeing Him fully.
What one person does in the darkness affects ALL of us in the Light.
And what one person withholds from the Light keeps us all from experiencing It's fullness.

So many of us spend our lives trying to Be Someone, not realizing that we are already Someone in our LORD'S eyes.

Inside we know we are a pauper, and spend so much time and energy trying to convince ourselves and others we are not, never realizing that the pauper is exactly who Jesus came for.

There is a beautiful exchange that takes place when we finally acknowledge the truth about ourselves, that we are completely bankrupt in every direction, a complete perfect mess in Christ's sight.

The moment we arrive here, we see the truth about Christ, that He truly has already overflowed onto and into every area surrounding us, and within us. He truly is Who He always has claimed to be, an ever present wellspring of Living Water.

And because of this, we are free to arrive in Him, even in our, "perfect mess," state. And at once we will SEE and FULLY acknowledge the One Who made Himself a Perfect Mess in order to secure our place in Him.

One who is still trying to pay her way displays her unbelief in the One Who already paid it all.

Only paupers receive the blessings of truly SEEING Christ as He is, for we are no longer afraid to SEE ourselves in His light, and know that we have absolutely nothing to offer Him save our need for Him.

It's ironic that we often come to Christ still believing that the rest He offers must deal in our circumstances, while all the while, God may be engineering our circumstances to highlight those places in us that are not rested in Him.

Children know only to trust their father, and therefore are able to live knowing they are free to live in his love and care for them.

It may take many of us a lifetime to wholly become who Christ enabled us to be, beloved children of God, who freely trust our Father's love and care for us.

Jesus, forgive us for all the ways we simply don't trust the fullness of all You accomplished for us, and therefore do not enter in to the rest You provide. Touch us deeply in those places in us that need Your rest, and let us wholly enter in today. Help our eyes move away from anything that keeps our hearts from looking to You, alone for our rest. Amen.

Sometimes we feel the weight of the mountain of who we are and God lets us feel it, knowing we CAN'T move it.

He does this so that we might recognize Him, and invite ourselves back to Him, the only One Who can.

We were never made to move mountains, but to rest our faith in the One Who made every mountain, and is able to not only move them, but to use them to strengthen our hearts and lives in Him.

"...on this day it is said, "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided." Genesis 22:14

When God takes us to the mountain where there is no provision, it might be that He is inviting us into a Revelation of who He is as, Jehovah-Jireh, the God who provides.

Don't fear the mountains, they are often God's greatest invitations into higher levels of His love and presence than we have ever experienced before.

Many of us spend much of our lives either marching around or wearing out climbing the same mountain.

When all the while God is waiting for us to realize the whole point of the mountain is to display our weakness and His strength.

When we finally stop SEEING us, He will show us Himself.

"When he heard this, he became very sorrowful for he was very rich" Luke 18:23

Am I merely a ,"conscious human being before Him?" I remember when I was. The moment I recognized the whole truth about myself, that I am wholly wrong, yet there stood before me a Holy God willing to recieve me and regenerate me into His likeness.

Then, as I began to follow Him, it became so easy to love everything about Him, often at the neglect of Him.

I can liken it to going to the grocery store. What I need is food, yet it is so easy to get lost in all the options, and distracted by all the choices that I miss what my body needs most, nutrition.

Here in America, its very easy to pseudo follow Jesus. And when we do, we get discouraged because our soul does not get what it craves most, Jesus Himself.

We can get so caught up in experiencing Him in one certain way that we miss who He truly is, and forsake where He wants to take us.

My heart breaks when I consider all the body of Christ is missing out on because we are out playing chase, and blaming Jesus for why He is not showing up, when He's been here the whole time.

We are His temple, His dwelling place, Oh, that we might simply stand still, humbly in His Presence and let Him be exalted in us.

The whole world longs to see what Jesus looks like in us, how I pray we can show them.

Jesus, forgive us when we make our relationship with You about us, and we insist on coming for You according to our ways, instead of Your prescribed Way, letting You come for us, because we need You. Forgive us for thinking we have anything to offer You save our sin and our great need for You. Help us forsake our ways that we might truly follow You Who IS our Way. Amen.

Just because we can't SEE does not mean we cannot SEEK.

For those of us who know God, we often feel like we are reaching through the dark to lay hold of Him, and perhaps we are.

We often get thrown off by the darkness that surrounds, which leads us to not always remember the power of the Light within.

Jesus let His heart and body be broken outside, in the darkness, so that He might offer His Light, to the inside of us.

By nature, a seed, mixed in the right soil, becomes something altogether different as the life inside it responds the light outside it. The seed knows nothing, but to break in the darkness, and allow the life to continue extending upward as it responds to the light outside it, all the while becoming a brand new creation. A creation that is no longer hard, and immovable, but alive, as it coexist with the light it has been responding to.

Just as a plant becomes one with the light and water it takes in, so we allow ourselves to become One with the Light of the world, and Living Water, JESUS.

And just as a seed does nothing but respond to that which, by nature, it was designed to.

So we, as Christians, can do nothing, but rest our hearts in Him who is causing us to become all He designed us to be.

Faith is our response to God's process. He planted us in Christ and He will surely make us grow and become fruitful as we continue to rest our souls in His Light and Love.

Only seeds left unplanted still worry about their shell. If you are planting in Christ, He gives us divine imperative to rest in Him, and let ourselves become who we can be, only in Him.

"Do you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." Galatians 6:19-20

God promised David way back in the Old Testament that He would build His temple through David, and as a Father, He would discipline us when we sin. And no matter what, His kingdom would never end, and never fail, but stand secure in His love.

God is promising in these verses a sure place to stand for His children, not in an earthly kingdom, but in a Father's love. The kingdom is built not with bricks and mortar, but through His Holy Spirit moving upon human hearts.

Both corporately and individually, He is shaping us to become a glorious place, a place for His own Presence to dwell for all eternity.

We are wise to set our hearts and eyes not to the kingdoms of this world, but to the One that will stand eternally, the one for whom we are made and by whose Spirit we find our home.

Only God can take a bunch of earthly stones, and by His Spirit, knit them as One, into a kingdom that will remain forever. Those of us who are His know what it is to meet another stone, for we instantly recognize our Father's heart within them, and this is how we are One, even when we may be physically separate. Through Christ, we all have the opportunity to come home and become so much more than we could ever hope to be, both in this world and in eternity.

We often forget that to remove the Cross is to remove the Crown.

Does not God meet us most in our moments of greatest fear, exhaustion, confusion, pain, sorrow, and loneliness?

When we feel most alone and alienated in this world is when we are truly closest to discovering Him Who is our Door to the world we were truly made for.

It is painful to witness one we love suffer, and there is needless suffering, however we are wise to consider those moments when we find one alone in the wilderness, yet see the cloud of His Presence amidst, to leave that one alone until, they too, witness Him for themselves.

The most painful thing is to watch someone who will not notice the cloud of God in their midst, for it is almost as if the suffering is of no purpose.
Yet more painfil still is the one who cannot notice the cloud because those around them keep their eyes looking in the wrong direction. They stay so fixed on the horizontal that they are never forced to reckon with the vertical.

There are times God allows each of us to choose whether we will stay wilderness wanderers or become transformed by His Presence within the cloud. The cloud is terrifying, because in it, we know we can't SEE and are forced to trust alone in the One who can.

Our faith comes real and alive in the cloud.

It is a personal, and private transaction that must happen between the heart of God and his child alone. We are invited up, yet we often will not discover the invitation until we are brought very low, into those moments when all we see before us is a Cross. Yet as we can look up, we see the cloud, and know Christ is with us, and has crowned us with all we need to move forward in His glory.

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

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.
