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)

Rhonda's Facebook

"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!

What's next?
Like a freshly sterilized kitchen counter, we've been wiped clean as a culture and the recipe to what we will become so much depends on what we have stored up in our cupboards during this time of uncertainty.
We learn so much truth about ourselves during times of uncertainty. We learn the truth of who we really are and what we truly believe about God.
Some of us will come out of this clinging ever more tightly to our own sense of control. Having faced the uncontrollable, we will eke a way to maintain our own little self-made universe in which we get to be sovereign, its the only way we feel safe.
Others of us will come out of this having come to the most freeing conclusion ever, that we are utterly incapable of maintaining our own universe. Like soldiers who know they are surrounded, we will come out waving our white flags, admitting defeat and surrendering our lives to the Lordship of the only One who truly knows how to rule us, our Father.
And sadly, some of us will, after having surrendered, will struggle with moments of trying to retreat back to our own self- conjured universes because we still don't know how to trust You fully.
Thank-You, Jesus, for grace that carries the weight of us as You wait for us to fully entrust our lives to You during our journey of living in this time of gracious uncertainty.

Oh, the consequences of trying to carry our own weight once it has already been carried by Christ.
In the end, we will stand on what we have tried to do for God or we allowed Him to do for us.
We will either readily admit that we tried to be our own shepherd, and in so doing, tried to earn umpire how we allowed God to shepherd us, or we will have simply acknowledge that Jesus IS our Shepherd, and we will have let Him lead us.

I learned a lot the other day when I tried to carry our cross through our neighborhood for a prayer walk.
What I hoped and imagined would be a prayer filled time for me to intercede for my neighbors turned out instead to be an humbling, even heartbreaking time for me to be confronted with my own weakness and inability.
Let me preface this by giving you some background about what Jesus has been working on teaching me during this time, He has had me in the book of Galatians for almost a year now, as I am mediating on God's gift of grace to us and to make Paul's famous word's in Galatians 2:20 true in my own heart, "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives within me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
The first thing I noticed as I set out to follow through in carrying this cross was, I'm embarrassed to say, my immediate awareness of what others around me might be thinking. My senses seemed to suddenly be heightened of who was watching and what they must be thinking as I went toward the cross. I could not help but think of the moment that Jesus, surrounded by a multitude who mocked, and beat Him, willingly clung to the cross for me. I was so embarrassed by own propensity to still care of what others thought of me. What kind of love forcefully pushes His way through mockers, beatings and insults to lay hold of the cross that we deserve? It humbles me how often I let go of the cross so quickly out of fear of what others think.
I hope I can become more like Jesus, willingly letting go, pressing forward, unafraid.
Of course, all that vanished when I actually got the cross upon my shoulders, granted, mine had a wheel to help shoulder the weight.
His didn't.
It was HEAVY!
I had a hard time thinking of anything else other than how I could keep balancing the cross, while still carrying it.
Oh, can you not relate?
A wrong step and the cross was shifting in a way that made it hard for me to shoulder, all the while, the weight of it pinching and pulling at my skin, straining muscles I didn't know existed.
Oh, how carrying the cross stretches us, and oh how it makes us move spiritual muscles we never knew we had.
Sometimes it even leaves tears upon our lives, tears we soon discover are actually doors through which we explore deeper caverns of His grace.
Where I had originally planned for this walk to be about praying for others, I found that I was crying out for Jesus to help me just successfully complete this walk.
Our cross walk is about Him alone, sure, Christ may use us to flow His glory through to others along the way, yet in the end, we will stand before Him alone, presenting back to Him alone the story of grace He has written over our lives.
In Luke 9:23, Jesus says, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." It's so easy to interpret that, "denying ourselves," as meaning that we are to serve others. Yet, that's not what He said, in fact in the very next verse (vs 24), He brings more clarity, "For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it." Jesus knew how to perfectly give away His life for our sake. He knew how to perfectly entrust His Father for direction, supply in every need, and ultimately for the faith and power to accomplish His purpose for coming, to become our Lamb of God, slain for our sins.
And just as Jesus was able to give His life away, so He too has enabled us. He has given us all we need to successfully finish our walk towards Him as we keep our attention upon Him.
Not surprising, I did not make it very far on my cross walk. I only made it around the corner of my block before I realized that I couldn't go much further (granted our streets are long).
As I headed back towards home, I found myself getting more and more excited about the prospects of getting the weight of the cross off my shoulders.
This leads me to my final lesson I learned.
In 2 Timothy 4:8, Paul knew his life of carrying his heavy cross was coming to a close and he was writing to encourage those of us who would be coming behind him with these words, "Henceforth there is a laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day, but not only me, but to all who love His appearing." This life is short! Before we know it, we will stand before the face of our King, and what a blessing it will be when we have faithfully carried our cross to the finish line.
I probably won't ever try carrying that cross again, yet I am thankful for what Jesus showed me through trying. Ultimately, I am thankful that I learned how heavy my cross is, for it reminds me that He alone could bear the weight of it, and when I carry my cross, what I am really doing is letting Him carry me.
That's what grace is!
I finally get it, Jesus!
Thank-you!
Happy Good Friday!

I did not write this poem, but have used it several times in my teaching and have thought about it many times over these past couple of weeks.
I'm not sure exactly what God is doing, but I am sure that He is loving us and that He is wanting us to know Him, and sometimes His ways of causing those two to sincerely happen look dramatically different than how we might think or choose. Love y'all and praying for all of us.

Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried:
Quietly, patiently, lovingly God replied.
I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate,
and the Master so gently said, “Child, you must wait”.

“Wait? You say, wait!,” my indignant reply.
“Lord, I need answers, I need to know why!
Is your hand shortened? Or have you not heard?
By Faith, I have asked, and am claiming your Word.

My future and all to which I can relate,
hangs in the balance, and YOU tell me to WAIT?
I’m needing a ‘yes’, a go-ahead sign,
or even a ‘no’ to which I can resign.

And Lord, You promised that if we believe
we need but to ask, and we shall receive.
Lord, I’ve been asking, and this is my cry:
I’m weary of asking! I need a reply!”

Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate,
As my Master replied once again, “You must wait.”
So I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut,
and grumbled to God, “So, I’m waiting...for what?”

He seemed, then, to kneel, and His eyes wept with mine,
and He tenderly said, “I could give you a sign.
I could shake the heavens, and darken the sun.
I could raise the dead, and cause mountains to run.

All you seek I could give, and pleased you would be.
You would have what you want - But, you wouldn’t know Me.”
“You’d not know the depth of My love for each saint;
You’d not know the power that I give to the faint;

You’d not learn to see through the clouds of despair;
You’d not learn to trust just by knowing I’m there;
You’d not know the joy of resting in Me
When darkness and silence were all you could see.”

“You’d never experience that fullness of love
as the peace of My Spirit descends like a dove;
You’d know that I give and I save...(for a start),
But you’d not know the depth of the beat of My heart.

“The glow of My comfort late into the night,
The faith that I give when you walk without sight.
The depth that’s beyond getting just what you asked
of an infinite God, who makes what you have LAST.”

“You’d never know, should your pain quickly flee,
What it means that “My grace is sufficient for Thee.”
“Yes, your dreams for your loved one overnight would come true.
But, Oh, the Loss! If I lost what I’m doing in you!

So, be silent, My Child, and in time you will see,
that the greatest of gifts is to get to know Me.”
“And though oft’ may My answers seem terribly late.
My most precious answer of all is still, ‘WAIT’.”

We are the bride! This is our time to prepare as never before. "Hallelujah! For the LORD our God the Almighty reigns, Let us rejoice and exalt and give him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and the Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with linen, bright and pure"
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints." Revelation 19:6-8
If we believe we truly ARE the Bride, we won't be afraid to truly let Jesus make us into who we have BECOME by His grace.
Jesus made Himself ready for us, becoming one with us in our sin. We fool ourselves when we think it was easy for Him. It would have been easy for Him as Son of God, yet He died as Son of Man. He stayed humbled to bear our sins, not calling upon His authority as Son of God to help Him, He stayed entrusted to the Father's hands till it was accomplished.
And now we get to be dressed in what He died for us to wear, His righteousness. What a beautiful privilege to be the Bride of Christ!

There is only one direction God's light shines, forward!
Sometimes we want to go backward and ask Him to justify things from the past, or sideways where all our anxieties tend to dwell here in the world of horizontal.
Yet, Jesus says, " when you are ready, we can go forward."
At some point we will wear ourselves out striving in our futile ways, getting nowhere.
And, finally decided to trust Jesus, seek His face and get going in the forward of Christ.
There is a sense of surrender when we finally turn in all our sense of authority over directing our lives and simply move forward in the light that Jesus is shining for us.
That light may not seem like much, but it's the same light that has been leading His childten to victory since the beginning. His light is life, there is no other way forward.
"For with You is the fountain of life, in Your light we see." Psalm 36:9

Perhaps Jesus has chosen this time to unbind us to so many of the ways we tried to bind ourselves to Him so that He might bind ourselves to Himself alone.
I am finding it very convicting how restless I have been in trying to get to Jesus instead of just allowing myself to rest in Him who came for me.

Psalm 46 reminds us that we have a fortress among us, our LORD Almighty.
This world and all it's kingdoms will crumble and eventually fall, yet God never will.
Could it be that we are now seeing with our eyes just the beginning of the days Jesus spoke about long ago (see Luke 21)?
Great earthquakes, famines, pestilence, terrors and great signs in the heavens...no one would argue that we seeing these things happen during this time.
Jesus told us, "Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. As soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know the summer is near. So also, when you see these things take place, you know that the kingdom of God is near," Luke 21:29-31.
We can look at events in our world and see them as a mirror of where we, as a world, stand with God.
But a better thing to do might be to take this time to examine your own heart.
Are you ready to stand before God?
He is coming, maybe sooner than we realize.
There is a fortress and a strong tower we can hide in right now, as well as eternally.
It is the Cross of Christ.
He is our righteous and as we place the weight of our lives in Him, we don't have to fear the weight of what's happening in this world.
All the sudden our hearts that were once anxious with fear can, "be silent and know that He is God." Psalm 46:10.
Have you ever asked Jesus to be your Savior? Why not today?

Jesus, help us discover You, our Shepherd, as we never have before. Thank-You for faithfully coming after Your sheep when we are lost, scared, sick, or shaken, or even when we have no idea we need a Shepherd. Thank You for all the ways You care for us, despite us, and how You teach us to walk in righteousness instead of letting us walk in what WE think is right. Thank-You for leading us home, to Your house, where we get to dwell with You forever. Forgive us for all the times we think we know the way better than You do.
Thank You for using this time of illness to heal us in ways we can never heal ourselves. Amen

Can God heal us? Of course He can, it is the reason He came.
Perhaps a greater question might be, "how does God heal us?" Isaiah 61 proclaims the very same words Jesus spoke to explain His purpose for coming (see Luke 4), "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the LORD has annointed me to bring good news to the poor, he has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, the opening of the prison to those who are bound, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor..." During His earthly ministry, He extended the power of what He had spoken through healing miracles, as well as many other miracles.
There is more than enough historical evidence to display Jesus can and did heal on earth.
As a woman who was sick for many years and who still struggles with some seemingly permanent (at least on earth) medical issues, I have wrestled with this aspect of Jesus' power probably more than any other.
If He can heal me, why is He is choosing not to?
As a girl who struggled with rejection most of my life, I won't lie, sometimes it has caused me to wonder if God too is rejecting me. After all, He knows me most. He is One I have turned to most during my season of broken dreams. He is the only One I could turn to when my heart was so scared and lost that I could not form prayers, only lay my face in my bible and cry inaudible words and moans. He was my refuge during that time,yet He was also the only One who could change my circumstance. Was He rejecting me by not granting my healing?
The longer I walk down this road with Jesus, the less I tend to worry about my physical healing.
I no longer sling out those hopeful prayers and thrust open each new doctors office door thinking, "this will be the one that gives us our answer!"
Although I still limp along alot of days, I have found a healing, an even greater one, happening in my heart and mind, a heart and mind that are truly set on heaven, on the face of Jesus.
He HAS become my healing!
He has become my Joy!
My prayers now focus on my Healer, not my healing. He has surely brought me an even greater healing than the one I was seeking.

Man, this was too good not to share!
There was one line from yesterday's teaching that rocked me and that goes hand in hand with this, "it's not the worst thing in the world when God begins teaching us how to truly be crucified."
The thought won't leave me that we will soon stand before Him where an examination will take place.
I want Him to examine my heart now!
I want to Jesus to be Real to me and in me now!
Sometimes it begins when I simply say, "I have no idea how to be right with You, but I want to."
I am so tired of justifying myself before Jesus and other people.
If I have am not right before Jesus,how can think I am right before others?
Maybe I don't know the first thing about being holy.
Maybe that's the point.
I need Jesus ALL the time, He's my only shot at rightness or holiness.
"If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:7.
Jesus, help me to walk in Your Light, and that means I must admit that I don't have any light of my own. Help me see the truth about myself all the time, that I am weak, and I need You. And thank You for being strong and allowing me to walk with others in Your Light who are willing to walk in the light and the blood with me. It's a beautiful journey when we walk with You, learning to live move and breath in You, learning to truly be Your Body.
Amen.

Incase you are wondering right now what God is doing, here it is, He is loving you!
It may feel like everything in our world is pointing in the exact opposite direction to this truth.
Yet, thankfully God is not swayed by feelings.
When it was time for Him to manifest His complete love for us to the fullest extent, He allowed what felt the worst to happen to Him, His own humiliation and death on a Cross, our Cross.
He loved us with an everlasting love then, and He is still loving us now.
When we look at the Cross, we can't help but examine our lives in light of it.
Could it be that even now, admid all the madness around us, God is still drawing us to Himself in ways that feel completely contrary to how we expected?
Sooner than we might know or realize, we will see Him face to face. And in that moment, it won't matter to us how uncomfortable we felt through whatever measures He took to draw us close to His heart. We will only rejoice that we finally released ourselves to the unfailing love that had been drawing to Himself this whole time.
When we lift Jesus up, we come up with Him, and His up is limitless, and everlasting, so much greater than any human feelings can contain.

Just came in from driving the kids to school. It's the beginning of the last week of school, the last week to prepare for all the family coming over here for Christmas.
There are schedules, to-do lists, shopping list and of course a house to clean and gifts to wrap. And at the end of all that, there is an ache in my heart that I long for more....of Christmas.
I long to capture that "wonder " that Mary held in her heart as she contemplated the unimaginable Ways of God. And I long to grasp the Holiness and Sacredness of that first night, when angels were too EXCITED to hold it in, thier Joy, expressing God's Joy, that He was FINALLY coming into the world to touch, experience, know, feel, wear, and ultimately die for us, His kids, the ones He longed to be reconciled to.
Its funny how a moment can open a door into your heart to experience what your heart is aching for.
That's what happened to me this morning as I came back home, opened my door to witness this scene between our cat, rightly named Noel, and our nativity.
Despite all the "have to's" screaming out all around, she found a place to snuggle up to the One from Whom all our "get to's" come. Oh come let us Adore You, Jesus! Forgive us when we get so busy planning Your birthday party that we Miss You, the One for Whom and by Whom we have all our reasons to celebrate.
Thanks Noel, our kitty, for this sacred reminder.

World peace is not God's goal! If that were the case, don't you think God would have looked down on his creation at this moment in history with fondness in His heart and thought to Himself, "wow! They are finally hitting the mark!"
But thats not what He did.
Infact, He did the exact opposite.
He frustrated the plans of those who were trying to unite and build a building that reached, "to the heavens."
It's easy for us to sometimes see a plan as good and then assume that it must be God's.
But we can know this for sure, God will never desire us to build or be part of building something that will in any way cause us to be apart from Him, even if it looks like a good thing.
There is a difference between building upon good and building upon God.
And sometimes the hardest adversaries we face are not the overt ones, but the good ones.
When God wanted to bring the world peace, He didn't send a building committee, He sent His Son.
"For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
And in sending His Son, He gave us each the chance to decide if we would be built in His Kingdom, the Kingdom that IS in the heavens, the one all our hearts ultimately long to call, "home."

"The entrance into the kingdom of God is through the sharp, sudden pains of repentence colliding with man's respectable "goodness."
The longer I walk with God, the more I realize that my part is simply to stay responsive to all He is willing to do in me to conform me into the likeness of His Son, Jesus.
At one time I believed that I had some part of adding to this transaction, but I realize now my only part is to allow myself to stand in Christ, believing He alone can and will unravel me from myself and make His Cross become as real in me as it was meant to be. And in so doing, the resurrection becomes real too. And I know that I am free indeed because of what God did that had nothing to do with me except my recieving the fact that I am chosen to have it. #jesusinme #repentance #redemption #oswald #utmostforhishighest #godlovesyou

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God." 1 John 4:7

It feels as is the world is looking at the church and saying, "where is the love?" Sometimes, I fear we as the church are looking to the world and wondering the same.
And my heart shuddders at the thought that God might be looking down at His kids and wonding, "where is the love?"
After all, He gave us ALL the love He had.
He wrapped Him up in a package that we could comprehend, and we "beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14.
God's love. Perfect love incarnate came for us, leaving us without excuse for not offering back to God that which He so freely gave to us.
Sometimes I find when my own heart lacks the love that I know I've been so freely given, my lack becomes my invitation to come and freely hear, see, know and remember.
"No one has ever seen God, the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known." John 1:18.
We, the church, have been given the amazing privilege to KNOW Love, Himself, Jesus Christ, our Savior. And not only to know Him, but to respond to His love by letting it flow from the very throne of God, through Christ, and straight into our hearts. Our only response at being given such a great honor and privilege is to repeat God's pattern in giving it away just as freely with which it has been given.
The very nature of God is love.
That means that we, His children, have that same nature.
Love, by definition, does not withhold, but freely flows out from itself onto others. Selfishness is the total negation of love and, like a barricade, stops up the flow.
Love cannot be defined in human terms, for doing so, also negates it, makes it smaller and limits it's capacity to do what by God's nature it alone can do.
It can only flow from God's heart through Christ, to us, and through us, becoming as it goes, the most powerful, unstoppable force in the whole universe.
Won't you let it flow through you today? Oh, how the Father longs to look down upon His children and see them express the glorious nature of His own heart. #perfectmess #Jesus #godscall

"If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:36

Guess what? This may come as a shocking surprise. It may even be a bit insulting to your individual, self-sufficient nature. But, eventually, even the strongest in our midst eventually sense this truth, even if they pretend they don't or once they do, strive all the more to supress it.
Are you ready?
Here it comes...
We are NOT in control!
Sure, we set our alarm clocks, have an agenda, and move according to a pre-determined set of hoops we are programmed to jump through to give ourselves a sense of purpose, a sense of contribution in this world. We live in a facade of our own making, most of us with a deep inner gnawing in our souls that the safe bubble of our facade could pop at any moment, leaving us squirming and suffocating under the weight of our greatest fear; knowing that we are living in an uncertain world, full of scary surprises that our best attempts at controlling can never fully protect us or those we love from.
We are doomed if we really want to face the truth of where we are headed. And we are helpless to do anything about it.
Stricken.
Afflicted.
Crushed.
Oppressed.
Cut off from the land of the living.
This is our lot, and we can do NOTHING to change it.
Except One thing.
There is One hope that we DO have control over.
And this One Hope makes room for all the other hopes for it offers freedom from ALL things, even from all striving.
We can trade our individuality in for Oneness with Christ, our Savior.
We can surrender our lives up to the One Who holds the world, the universe, even our world in His hands.
And we can trade in our need for control for a need for trust in Him instead, trust that offers us rest for our souls.
There was One Who one day long ago looked down upon us, saw our helpless estate, and came for us.
And for us, He became;
Stricken.
Afflicted.
Crushed.
Oppressed.
Cut off from the land of the living.
He let that become His lot in exchange for the chance to offer you the hope of becoming what He alone can offer, free indeed!
I pray that you will make this exchange today. #becomingewe

Thank You for ALL the days You have held back the darkness, teach us to truly pray and stand in You. YOU are our peace, security and safety admidst every threat we face. We give ourselves, our children, our schools, our communities into Your Hands. Amen.

Wounded Healers, what a calling those of us who have been blessed to be healed, redeemed, and transfromed by the One Who was Wounded for us to be healed.
May we never stop seeing ourselves as anything more than those who have been victims of the most horrific crime of all, sin.
And yet, may we never stop seeing ourselves as less than those who have been radically redeemed by the One Who came to become the most Wounded Healer of all, Jesus.
Oh, LORD, make us like Him. Help us not fear our wounds, but let them bring us closer to You so that we might become Your wounded healers in this world that is so desperate for a true healing touch from You. Amen.

"He was despised and rejected-a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weakness he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. We thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God's path to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of all of us." Isaiah 53:3-6
The longer I walk with Jesus, the more these words mean to me.
I SEE that there is truly no place to stand, even in myself.
Only Jesus!
And praise Jesus He is there, inside me, all around me. In His wholeness, I am whole. In His Light, I SEE, and even though it often feels as if I don't know where I am going in this world, I am abiding in perfect peace because I KNOW He is my Way.
Thank -You, Jesus, for wearing me so that I can wear You in this world. Forgive me when I desire to look, move, and arrange my life as the world does. Thank You for always taking me back to the Cross, and reminding me where I truly died to that way, so I can live in You, Who IS my WAY. Help us all find our way back to You today so we might live.

Gluten free, lower sugar chocolate chip cookies!
This weather makes me want to bake, but we have gluten sensitivity in our family as well as a diabetic.
So these cookies are made with stevia instead of sugar (but still with half the brown sugar) and I ground groats in the vitamix to make gluten free flour. I usually only grind it as it need it as it only keeps for about 10 days.
They bake up beautifully, I think even better with the groat flour and it leaves them with an AWESOME texture.
Thank-You, Jesus, for new adventures in baking, and for warm cookies on rainy days. Thank-You for the good gift of today and all the moments we get to celebrate You in this life by choosing to live it to its fullest. You are our Life and length of days (Duet.30). Amen.

Which are we; wrong, vile, good, or holy?
God doesn't say to change, just know I am coming soon and ,"blessed are those who wash their robes so they can enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. Outside the city are the dogs-the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love a lie." Rev. 22:12-15
We get to choose to stay in our deeds or to step into His.
And only His are Holy and lead us to life.
What a wonder that this very sinful woman who was once outside as a sexually immoral, vile, murderer and idol worshiper was able to make one choice that made me Holy, and that makes me alive.
I will never get over that.
How I pray more will accept this free gift of God's grace before He comes.

This really hit me this morning during quiet time. How often we judge God for condemning sinners. When the real question is, "what am I doing with Jesus?"
That is all that will matter when we stand before Him in heaven and all that should matter to us now.
How am I releasing my heart to the Lordship of Christ? As His light shines in a new area in my life, do I reject it and stay in the darkness or walk into to, even if it means I must see myself, those I love, my circumstances, or maybe even my whole life differently?
We say we love Jesus, but He puts our words to our feet. If we love Him, we will eventually walk as He walked.
We will love His light when it comes because, even if it makes us uncomfortable, it welcomes greater intimacy with our Precious Christ Jesus, the One who loves us and is always leading us forward in triumph.

Sometimes, all it takes is a little courage to walk back through the door into the darkest parts of our story, and believe that, this time, the Light of the World is going with us, and His Light changes everything. Who knew that the same room in my heart that the enemy used for so many years to steal, kill, and destroy me would become the exact same room that Jesus would use and cause me to know and understand His abundant Life in ways that I never could before. Jesus, may You continue to do Abundantly More than we can ask…I love You because YOU ALWAYS Faithfully love me so well. AMEN.

I have often heard the term, "the Christian thing to do is _____(fill in the blank)". I find that the further I come along with Jesus, the clearer and simpler things become. There is only but one thing to do and that is to follow Jesus_period.
Jesus, Himself, had no place to lay His head in this world. His rest was in His Father, Who lives above this world. And so it is with us who follow Him. We let go of building earthly nests of temporary security here in this life. We let go of it all and entrust it all into our Father's hands Who Knows our loves, our lives, and our Way so much more intimately than we can ever ask or imagine. Jesus becomes the place to lay our head above this world. And from His Presence and Provision, we find all else required to not only follow Him, but to truly love well those with whom He has entrusted us.
I wonder what He sees when we strive to love them outside of His leading? I wonder if He is perplexed when we seek to do the, "Christian thing", instead of following Him.
I wonder how much this world is missing out on Jesus because so many are striving to serve Him instead of following Him. (Based on Luke 9:57-62)

We just came through a huge storm/flood here in Houston, Texas area and since then, I have been overcome with hummingbirds.
Sometimes I try to count (which is hard because they are so fast), but there seems to be as many as 20 out there at this one little feeder
I can only imagine that in God's gracious provision, He knew that this mom stuck in a home with teen girls needed a joyful distraction as much as these little hummers needed life giving nectar, so He brought us all together.
My girls and I have found a tiny refuge and beautiful distraction in these majestic creations and while there is flooding all around us, we are being flooded with hummimgbirds.
Matthew 6:26, "Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"

Thank-You, Jeaus, for meeting our needs and providing for us in EVERY way. Thank -You for the hummingbirds and for all the ways You make Yourself known, even in the midst of life's storms. You are good all the time. Help us to keep our eyes open and alert to all Your blessings. Amen.

God in us IS the hope of GLORY. He is REAL and He is REAL in us. We get to experience His supernatural attributes in the most ordinary moments, as well as the most chaotic moments. The peace of Christ shows up in and through us and we are the most surprised at our own ability to be supernaturally natural in circumstances that we know would have rocked and torn us in our fleshly state.
God is good and He is good in us.
We find ourselves loving others who we might have never noticed before Christ's heart was alive in us. We find that the things that rocked us before suddenly don't. But there is a sudden urgency for a whole new agenda, that of the heart of God. It is an agenda that He unfolds in and through us as we continually walk with Him and experience His heartbeat within us.
It cannot be copied, or manufactured, it can only happen as we continually obey Jesus command, "follow Me." Matthew 4:19.

Such a beautiful reminder from Micah 4:1-5 that God, alone, can and will ultimately restore peace to our world. A day is coming when our faith will have become our sight and as it is in heaven will become as it is on earth.
Oh Jesus, help us SEE that what keeps us from peace is our own inability to SEE ourselves as You do. Some of us refuse to see our sin and self reliance that keeps us apart from You. And some of us refuse to see that You truly have overcome and are overcoming ALL that involves us, so we hold on, instead of releasing what rightfully belongs to You.
Forgive us for all the ways we refuse to enter into Your peace now, and open our eyes to SEE You Alone, the One Who IS and will always be our peace. Amen.

Psalm 139:7 "Where shall I go from your spirit ? Or where shall I flee from your presence?"
You can never flee from Me! Where ever you go, no matter what you are doing, I AM THERE. Where can you flee from My Spirit? Once you are mine, you may try and flee from awareness of Me, but I never flee from My awareness of you.
Infact, I love to draw near to you in some of your most messy moments, those moments when you try hardest to flee from Me. I paid a High price to be near you through even your Biggest Messes.
It is My Joy to be your comfort, your truth, your provision through all of your earthly journey.
This is because I Love You! And I just love when you let yourself belong to Me, and trust Me with ALL you are.
Whatever you do, let it be out of revelation of my love for You, not out of fear of what I haven't done for you or others you love.
In this way, you are free from disappointment because your eyes are set to hope in Me alone, the One Who died to walk beside you all the way home.
Your frame is never hidden from Me, I know ALL of your boundaries even better than you do. I SEE you, and I love you so
I long for you to SEE Me, rest in Me and enjoy this journey we are on together. You are my child now and forever, nothing can separate you from My love which is GREATER than all your attempts to hide from it.

How often we choke out God with our own thoughts and judgments about our circumstances. Instead of allowing Him to become a River in us, flowing everything exactly as He has ordained, we try to build dams in our minds that hinder Him from accomplishing His fullness in us.
Oh, how we love to try and box God in to our own understanding.
Yet, once we do, we end up with something less than God, small, drying up creeks, full of muddy water that only serve to disappoint and underwhelm us.
God is too big and powerful to fit within our dammed up understanding of Him.
We are better off to jump in, full body surrender, and let Him carry us off into His greatest adventures for us.
Will we be safe?
Will we be in control?
These are the very questions that hinder us from the adventure He is waiting to give us in His River of life.

"Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound!" 2 Timothy 2:8-9
This bound world does not rejoice losing its hold on those within it. So, we should not be surprised that sometimes the more unbound we become, the more lonely and misunderstood we also become in this world.
We are blessed that many of us may never know the literal chains as Paul did, whom the world tried to shut away because his freedom in Christ was too threatening to it's bound up ways, and those entangled within them.
The longer I walk with Jesus, the more REAL the pathway is before me, and the clearer my vision becomes.
Where I use to feel the chains, and the weight of those whom I love in the world stilll bearing down on me, I am learning to press in to Jesus all the more, and instead of being pulled back into thier bonds, Christ is teaching me instead Press them into His freedom.
Only the Word unbinds us and sets us free, so I will be bound to Word, and pray that others might SEE freedom and become unbound too.

These are the opening lines to a prayer I wrote this morning (you can find the whole poem on my blog in my intro).
I didn't realize that God has used these last 6 years of unraveling my life to move some of the biggest mountains that I never knew needed moving.
Sometimes you don't realize the mountain God has been moving in you until you both walk past it and He has you look back at it together. And what maybe you thought was a season of disappointment in your family, or unexpected illness, or dealing with sudden loss looks suddenly DIFFERENT in His eyes.
It was SO BIG at the time, and all you saw was THAT THING that you wanted God to move.
But now, as you look at it together you SEE.
It took that THING give you this moment.
This moment of SEEING that mountain and REALIZING what looked like a THING on the OUTSIDE to you was REALLY a WALL on the INSIDE towards God.
And all the pressing and pushing it took to survive THAT season was really a pressing out of yourself and pushing into Jesus.
It's not hard to move a mountain that Jesus has already moved.
It's just hard for us to press ourselves out of the way enough to SEE what He already SEES.

I pray you will take a look at my blog and read the poem Her Here, written as a prayer of gratitude to God, the One Who is moving mountains in me.

May Jesus richly bless you today in His Abundant Love.

His and yours,

Rhonda

What could our days, our moments, our lives become if we shifted our eyes from looking upward to our "one-day" God to inward to see our "right now" God?
Are we capable of truly grasping such a life? If not, we may be living a life less than the one Jesus died for us to have.
It's always safer to believe for "one-day", yet Jesus is I AM, and His I am is meant to extend ever forward through us each day, and moment, shifting our lives through His fellowship as we go into vessels fit to dwell eternally in the presence of the LORD.
What if today is the day we stop looking up and instead look in and truly believe that Jesus has made His home in us and is waiting to extend His transforming fellowship right inside the temple of our hearts?

Do we SEE God every day in our lives? We must if we are truly following Him.
It's easy to submit to a man-made, self conjured up idea of who Jesus is based on our perceptions of who we want Him to be, but there is NO power in that.
But as we identity with His birth inside of us, a REAL birth, connected to the REAL God through the REAL death of Jesus, we SEE Him in us, Christ in us, the hope of GLORY!
And each day, no matter how hard or mundane becomes significant and weighty because we are surrendered to the God of our days, the One Who is working ALL out for good. He alone SEES and KNOWS, and as we recognize His sovereignty over us, we begin to SEE and experience the evidence of His Kingdom ruling in us. What a privilege it is to be a child of God!

We are created through Christ, and for Christ. Once this truly sinks in, all else falls into place.
Like an accident clogging the highway, blocking all the traffic from flowing through, our self centered thinking leaves us in a constant state of bumping against one another, unable to move forward into God's destiny for us. Our self awareness at the wheel always looking out for mortal over the eternal.
Only in Him are we properly held together, are we rightfully aligned and able to move freely about in God's glorious plans for us, without crashing and bumping into ours or anyone else's ego. Oh, how the world groans to experience the unclogged highways of human hearts released fully to run through the highways of God's Grace!

Some view the Christian life as one being one where perfect people live in perfect bubbles of safety and security.
It is, infact, the exact opposite. A true Christian is one who is utterly aware of their imperfection, and their need for Christ. And because of this awareness, they are moving against the current of the entire world, facing intense opposition from every side, yet trusting and abiding in God's strength and sovereignty as they forge forward. They are very aware that their standing with Christ places them as targets in this world, yet their aim lies above this world, in the Father's heart.

It's so easy to hear God's words and not respond to them.
Or, to respond to our own interpretation of them, instead of the simplicity of what He really said.
The hardest thing is to simply hear God, and then simply obey Him.
It takes us a very long time to kick ourselves out of the conversation, maybe even a lifetime.
O Jesus, grant us the ability to become simple enough to simply obey You. Amen

Child, there are some issues in your life that must be worked out of you before I can fully release you for the work of My hands.

You have NOT fullly released your nature to Me. You have come so far, but there is still so much farther to go.

You have Let Me in, but not offered Me a clean place to stay. You are beginning to know My grace, but you fail to understand that the same grace that has cleaned your heart and mind also desires to clean your habits and all your small, still fleshly compromises.

You compromise how my children see Me when you fail to let Me out all the way.

Let Me have My full way with you and SEE that there is SO much more of Me to discover once you stop compromising with you.

"Jesus did not commit Himself to them...for He knew what was in man." John 2:24-25
When we place our hope in flesh, there will always be lack, leaving us with a nagging sense of disappointment. Yet, when we place our hope in Christ, it is utterly impossible to be disappointed. Jesus does not disappoint, even when life, people, and circumstances do.
As we place all our hopes in Him, we will find our lives becoming a journey from grace to grace, one of lived headed in a direction above this world, no longer entangled in it's disappointments and disillusionments.
One of our greatest joys becomes experiencing the reality of Jesus in us, all because we have made room for Him to be there, instead of crowding Him out with all our false expectations of men.

There are those who speak of the authority of God. And there are those who speak IN the authority of God. What a huge chasm there lies between the two.
A person who has only read about, watched movies about, and perhaps come up with millions of ideas about parenthood can not explain the complexity and wonder it is to be entrusted by God with another's life and soul.
Only one who has experienced the weight of such has the authority to speak of such.
And so it is with knowing God. We don't speak about Him, as if He is a Being we can explain. But as children who are authorized in understanding all the ways He has explained us, and even reaches down to explain Himself to us.
What a wonder it is to belong to God, and to be given authority by Jesus to try and use something as small as words to explain One SO Big, GLORY is the only word to describe Him.

Where does our deepest sense of insecurity and fear come from?
Does it not come from our knowledge deep within, that part that maybe we try and hide from others, and maybe even ourselves, that something is wrong, broken, off, distorted, scary and unmanageable?
We spend our thoughts, our plans, and our lives trying to resurrect small fortresses for ourselves to either hide away in or try and convince others of our need to not hide in one.
Hardly anyone is willing to admit the truth; that we are scared, vulnerable, and insecure in this life.
And all our best attempts at creating a sure place to stand have, at best, only served to give us only a temporary, false sense of security.
Deep in our hearts, we know the truth-that we, all of us, are irreparably broken.
Yet, standing in our midst, almost hidden in plain sight is our answer.
"For by him all things were created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities -all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Colossians 1:16-17.
"For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross."
Could it be that we became marred and broken the moment we took ourselves out of our Maker's hands? Like toddlers walking around holding the finest crystal, we hold on to what we have no business holding on to and therefore, peace alludes us.
God made us, and He made a way to reconcile us back to Him. Could it be that, even the insecure awareness in our hearts attest to this truth?
Just as fish doesn't make sense anywhere else but in the water, we don't make sense anywhere else but in Jesus. He is the One who made us, and redeemed us back to Himself. We have peace in Him because only in Him are we truly home.

"Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me." Romans 7:20
"If, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ." Romans 5:17

It seems like a long and winding road from hearing of grace to actually walking in it, yet the miracle of it is that, even that winding road is paid for by it.

Grace, God's Riches At Christ's Expense, is our only hope of salvation, and once we finally embrace our need for it, it becomes our greatest freedom to enjoying our heritage in Christ.

The hardest part about grace is that it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with us. Oh, how we long to make, even our faith, about us. Yet, before long we find that we must choose between a powerless way of being, a superficial, man-made religion where we easily can know and even name our way, or entering into grace, which means we must exchange all ideas of our way for God's Way, Jesus.

In truth, grace is the road all God's children end up on. It just takes some of us alot longer to recognize that none of us really have a way here, and that Jesus is truly Who He said He was, "our Way, our truth, and our life," the only One we've got here down on earth. And Grace is the ground that His love and blood paid for, even all our mistook steps it took to figure that out.

Here is a sure promise today from 1st John 5:18. All of us know someone who struggles and who, when our minds have time to wander, we get tempted to worry about.

We worry because we know, even our greatest attempts at, "holding them securely", will fail. Yet, God promises here that His won't.

He knows we live in a scary world and He alone is our assurance in the midst of it, for us and for those we love in His family who may be wandering right now.

We are free to fix our eyes on Jesus and be Filled with Hope.

Sanctification is the same word in Hebrew as wedding, the day two people die to individual lives in order to rise to life as One. In a moment one whole that becomes something greater because two people died to thier desire to stay one.
It is the same when we come to Christ. It's a death, therefore letting go is required. Yet, what we become in our letting go we expand into more than we ever were on our own.
We die to what hinders us from standing naked and unashamed before God, so that we might live free in His Presence. #Jesus #utmost #MyUtmostForHisHighest #shereadstruthbible #BibleScripture #perfectmessrhonda #perfectmess #rhondadelamoriniere #rhondadela #becomingewe

Oh the territory traveled between, "Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me..." Luke 15:12 and, "I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants." Luke 15:19.
It takes some of us a lifetime to understand the depth and breadth of our own depravity, our utter helplessness and hopelessness without Jesus.
Yet, He waits. With the precision of the most skillful surgeon, using time and brokenness as His tools, He operates on us, making room in our hearts for a Life to spring up.
It's a miracle the way God teaches us Grace.
Jesus, thank-You for every road You ordain for us to help us come to a place where we are willing to open up our hearts and admit that they have been vacant without You. Help us stop traveling down the dusty roads of this world to fill them, and let us fill them with You, Jesus.

The hardest part in belonging to Jesus is actually realizing our need for Him. It's easy to accept the lord of our own making, and to bow down to our man made gods, who we may have even convinced ourselves are Jesus. Yet, He does not dwell in temples made with human hands. And when I find any part of my strength trying to carry Him, I know what I'm worshipping is not Him at all
He carries me.
The longer I live, love, and walk with Him, I find that this is not a journey of me growing in wisdom and knowledge, as much as one of allowing myself to be unwound from any wisdom and knowledge I thought I had so that He might carry me in His own. I am safe to be weak, inknowing, and vulnerable in Him. This is blessed freedom, to KNOW I am HELD in the Hands of the One Who Knows and Knows me.

God is REAL and He is REAL in us! It is worth whatever strain to climb the heights, or whatever dread to face the valleys we must endure to KNOW, EXPERIENCE, and UNDERSTAND this TRUTH.
No matter what we endure here in the shadow of time, it will ALL seem SO small compared to KNOWING Him, the One Who climbed down from heaven, and humbled Himself into our flesh to KNOW us.
The One Who allowed our SIN to become REAL in Him wants us to KNOW that He is REAL in us.
We can't receive one without also accepting the other.
Oh, how He longs for us to KNOW and BELIEVE Him.

Numbers 13 records one area of failure for God's people. God had sent his people to explore the gift He was giving them, the gift of a Promised Land. This was a remarkable place, the land of milk and honey, where grapes grew so big the clusters had to be carried on poles across men's shoulders. Any parent who has waited on Christmas morning for thier child to open that One Gift can imagine the exhilaration of what this moment meant for the Israelites, the gift recipients, and God, the gift Giver.
Yet, when these people return, instead of boasting about the AMAZING gift of this home that God was providing them, most of the people who went to spy out the land came back with reports about how great the enemies were that were occupying the land. They said, "we can't attack these people, they are stronger than we are..." Numbers 13:30. God's children fixated on their fears of men instead of resting in the faith of thier Father.
Many times we blame God for not providing us the Promised Land we were expecting in this life. Could it be that we are standing right in the midst of His PROMISE for us, yet our eyes are on the Giants who are occupying where we want to be, or the fortified walls and barriers that seem to mockingly taught us with ,"keep out" signs posted all around, or perhaps the myriads of armies that seem to be standing between us and His Promise over us? Could it be that instead of looking at God, we are looking at all the barriers to His Promises?
God sent His people on a mission to behold what He had given to them, not what He intended to keep from them.
When we set our eyes on Jesus, we can always look forward to life He will bring from any situation, the freedom He will deliver from any fear, and the victory He will gain over every territory God has entrusted to us.
Let's stop looking around the territory of our lives and offering a bad report to ourselves and others.
And let's start looking around and seeing it through the Good News of God's promises.

What is an area of your life that you have been giving a bad report about? Why not trust God, instead today?

God rules over rulers, and is ALWAYS in control, no matter what.
If heaven rules that means that we don't. Much of the chaos we see around us going on is due to our unbelief in this truth. We don't believe that God rules so we rule ourselves and blame others who rule themselves and try to press their self appointed sovereignty upon us.
There is an order that comes when we place God upon the throne of our hearts and leave Him there. Jesus will truly become our Prince of Peace and our government, every detail that governs us, will be born upon His shoulders. Oh, what joy and peace there is when allow God to have His rightful place in our lives. (Danial 4 devotions)

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

Hands outstretched towards us, proclaiming our choice, "stand on earth firmly or follow My Voice?"
"Become My Word or stay a man?"
"You get to choose, I give My life so you can...."
"Enter eternally now, and walk with Me
Or stand on your own, you get the choice to be....
"Your own man in the making, who writes your own story
Or, My child eternal, who lives in My Glory.
"But know this, my child, and may you choose well,
"That I made you,,sweet child, for My Glory to dwell"
"And should you choose to live a life outside my grace...
"Part of your heart will ever long for My face "
"For, you are My child, My Beloved Creation"
"I formed you, and fashioned you in great estimation"
"Knowing in advance how you would struggle and strain to be known,
I ensured a WAY to bring you home."
"I became your flesh, and came for you,
Like a flag, My body hung this message that is True "
"Your Word became flesh, bore your curse on a tree.
So, your flesh can become My Word and welcome you home with Me "

The great why in life is explained so well here. Like the skin horse in the beloved book, The Velveteen Rabbit, perhaps we need something in this world to rub our skin off so we can become REAL.
The last few years for me have been years of sorrow, confusion, and lots of questioning, yet I have found my LORD, Jesus, to found faithful in my deepest moments of darkness. Like a bubble of Light that pops up in the midst of my most painful and lonely moments, He has shown Himself faithful, and I have become all the more blessed and REAL because of Him meeting me there.
I know Him more now, and I know of my great need for Him more not despite my sorrows, but because of them. And due to that alone, I am blessed, even in the valley of the shadow. I know Whose shadow I'm standing in, and He is faithful.

Sin is REAL, and it's real in us. Humility begins when we reconcile ourselves to this fact, and acknowledge our ever need for Jesus, Who came for sinners, not for the clean.
"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.
Our Christian walk does not consist of one time confession of our need for Jesus, but a every moment acknowledgment that we are weak, yet He is strong over us. We GET to experience His overwhelming salvation over us each and every time we are willing to acknowledge our helpless state without Him. What a Journey! What a Savior!
What rest comes when we fully know the truth about ourselves, yet KNOW He has chosen to replace it with His truth instead. What a treasure it is to be a child of God.
