Love Wins

Last week I posted some musings on a variety of things. This paragraph was included: Love wins. Period. There is no person, no program, no politics, and no policy that can eliminate the division in our nation, or the darkness that is so prevalent in this world. It should go without saying that dogmatically expressing our … More Love Wins

Uniquely His

Time to Be-Loved? New/old curriculum available (free) online soon!

Years ago I saw a picture of a circle that began, then ended, then began again. Each time the circle closed and began again, it was within the previous circle, but slightly smaller. After several circles had begun, then closed, then began again, the picture took on the shape of a funnel. I realized that … More Time to Be-Loved? New/old curriculum available (free) online soon!

A few things I’ve learned, pt 3 – Running TO Him

“I’ve learned to run to Him in my brokenness, failures, frustrations and disappointments, rather than away from Him in shame, regret, confusion or anger.” It goes all the way back to the beginning of man. Adam and Eve walked in unbroken fellowship with God. But then they sinned. After they sinned they did something that … More A few things I’ve learned, pt 3 – Running TO Him

The Discipline of Tears

I’ve been a mess lately. An inside-out, gutted-open, blubbering mess. I haven’t spent this much time crying in a long time–a long, long, looong time. I’m not talking about a few tears here and there slowly and gently gliding ever-so-delicately down my cheeks. No, I’m talking about ugly crying–really ugly–as in slobbery, snotty wailing. Basically … More The Discipline of Tears

Until I Know

As I’ve already shared, I’ve committed to posting a couple times a month over on the Live Brave blog. My first post over there was this short poem. I like to get my head around things in simple terms and I wrote that first poem to do just that. I wanted to answer the question … More Until I Know

My Heart to Yours

I’ve been trying too hard lately. It’s kind of funny, really, because the concepts of rest and abiding in Christ are such deeply rooted core values for me. I always want to be led by his presence. I only want to do what I see him doing. But, well, sometimes I miss it. Sometimes I miss … More My Heart to Yours

Redirected Steps

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. —Luke 10:1 The nudge of the Holy Spirit was unmistakable. The emphasis seemed to be on the “sending them out two by two” part of the verse but since I was … More Redirected Steps

Memorized

Have you ever heard something–a thought, or maybe even just a word–that instantly lodges itself into the deep, subterranean places of your heart? Something that hits your spirit and sticks with you in a way that is far beyond mere words? Something that unlocks a new glimpse of heaven’s heartbeat ? Something that provokes you … More Memorized
