Not So Among You

My friend Kelsey once introduced me to her dad as her pastor, a title I both love and hate. It’s a biblical term and one that I am called to. I love pastoring and shepherding  people, helping them to get disentangled from the evil that seeks to entrap them. Much to my surprise, Kelsey told…

Pursuit of the Holy

The winds rage As the determined press in Seeking the eye of the storm False convictions knock us down Demanding we submit to the religion of the day For when men chose to use God as their means of demand They do not back down Even when they argue with God So few even know…

The Heart – The Kingdom

The Heart More deep than words represent The heart beats beyond Where words fail The heart beats And rests And flutters When words end The heart beats And waits

Divine Debate

Who do you say that I am? Which one of you if your sheep fall in a ditch on a Sabbath would pull it out? Why are you persecuting me? Can these bones live? Who will go for us? (Luke 9:20; Matt 12:11; Acts 9:4; Ezek 37:3; Isa 6:8) Here are a few questions that…

Regardless…

Where ever we’ve been. Whatever sins we’ve committed, however dirty and ashamed we’ve become He still knows us and desires to be with us. We must simply turn to Him.

Towering SkyLine

Sometimes my thoughts and opinions feel like buildings that tower over me. I live in their shadows and am known for their skyline. I know there is a fruited plain that is more revealing of my Master. I must strive to go there, to leave my opinions. To find peace near every bush and orchard…

I understand wh…

I understand why you might have disdain for God. I assure you, He has no disdain for you. Talk in His direction. Experiment. He’s closer than you think.

Show me a perso…

Show me a person who doesn’t suck in their stomach when they look themselves in the mirror and I’ll show you someone capable of changing the world.

Masterpiece

  It is purely through grace that God reveals Himself to us But on occasion we forget that And we begin to think of ourselves higher than we ought while making Him lower We judge and assess God based on how He responds to our demands and prayers This is not right God does not owe us anything…

Interviewing an Alien

Here is an interview with Francis Chan, a recovering Mega-church pastor who began to reject his own fame to follow the Spirit of God. The interviewers seem to be simply confused by him and attempt to pick his brain… attempt to poke fun at him. It’s clear that he has no idea what he’s getting himself into.  Love…

Exchanged.

It grieves me to report that from my estimation, from the US in the city with the most churches… we have almost completely quit estimating our Christianity by spiritual means, discerning  the presence of the Holy Spirit and the fruit therein, and we’ve exchanged it for our perceived “church” attendance. Heart-broken. For this is a…

Murmuration vs. Heaven

I’m confident that even the best of us can’t imagine the beauty of G-d’s dwelling place. This video reminds me of that. In the video you can hear the girl cuss… I bet we might do way more than that if we experienced the full beauty and majesty of G-d and His Heaven. http://vimeo.com/31158841
