Destiny of Love

Written by
No greater love has ever been expressed than this, "That a man would lay his life down for another".  Here in is love demonstrated to us, not that we love Him, but that He first loved us!  It has been noted in Holy Scripture that Jesus loved us, "while we were yet in sin" and gave His life as a ransom for us, that He would purchase the cost of our redemption.  The purchase price?  The blood of a sinless lamb, a sacrifice who would take the place of another.  Jesus was that lamb, "slain from the foundations of the world".  He was born to die!  So that we could live.  Our desire for you is the same as Paul had for the church at Ephesus, that "together" we might try and grasp the depth of His love, the width of His love, the height of His love and to discover our destinies that were embedded into our spirit from before we were ever birthed on this earth. Ephesians 3:14  "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,15. Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  16.  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;  17. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,  18.  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is…

Running On Empty

Written by
There was a song back in the day that describes how many people feel, “Running On Empty.” Remember the times that you’ve pushed the limits on the gas gauge of your car. As it crept closer and closer to the “E” we would pray and ask God to stretch the mileage or do something to give us a few more miles on this tank of gas. On several occasions we coasted into the gas station with just fumes in the gas tank. Some got into a habit of this little game and they still see how far they can push the limits of the gas in their car. It’s funny when you do run out of gas how we blame the devil for stealing our gas or for some huge conspiracy against our lives. Truth is there ain’t nobody to blame except our own selves. We should have paid more attention to the gas gauge than we did to the playlist on our iPod. We have a tendency to do the same thing spiritually. We get busy, distracted, running here and there and taking care of so many important things and we neglect putting any gas in our spiritual gas tanks. We end up running on fumes and we get short tempered, frustrated and wondering when God is ever gonna show up and change everything. Impatience is a good sign of running on empty. If you’ve read this far then you know what it’s like to run on empty. You…

Jack of All Trades, Master of None

Written by
We live in the age of multi-tasking! Several years ago we stopped at a McDonald’s restaurant because we were under a Mac-Attack. Jariah, one of our sons, who was about nine years old at the time, walked to the counter to ask for some salt. The employee was taking the order of another person and Jariah couldn’t wait for them to finish so he spoke up and asked for some salt. The employee looked at Jariah and said, “You’ll have to wait, I’m busy right now.” To which Jariah immediately responded, “What’s wrong, can’t you multi-task”? Jariah had been around his brothers, sister and other family members that had multi-tasking down to a science. My wife of almost four decades, is amazing when it comes to being able to do so many things at once and do them all so well. I have watched in amazement as she has prepared meals for large numbers of people with many different dishes. Somehow all of the food comes out just perfect and at the right time. Nothing under cooked, nothing burnt, everything just perfect like the pictures from a cooking magazine. How she can know when to turn this up and cool that down and preheat the other thing and add some pinch of something to a dish and then it’s time to eat. She is amazing. Jariah has seen multi-tasking at it’s best. Even though my wife is doing many things at once she is very focused on the objective that…

Fog On The Mountain

Written by
There is just something that feels so right and so incredible when you finally make up your mind about some critical issues. The Prodigal Son who thought he knew the direction his life should go. He tried everything that he thought would make him happy and probably knew he wasn't happy, but he just kept telling himself, "this is what I want and this is where I want to be". When you get out of whack with God your mind plays tricks with you and your value system goes haywire. That's not very spiritual terms, but it's the best way I have to describe the feeling. You do things you know are not right, but you can't seem to stop because there's a frog in your fountain. Fog on the mountain. You know what I mean! It's like Purple Rain. It's rain, but it's the wrong color. The Prodigal Son was free, but his freedom became a prison. Step by step he was laying the foundation stones for his own incarceration. Incarcerated by stupid decisions, wrong associations, rebellious attitudes until he looked around one day and found himself so far away from his intended purpose. Luke 15:17,18 says, "And when he came to himself, he said, "how many hired servants of my fathers have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18. I will arise and go to my father and say unto him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee," The bible says that…

Making Somewhere Out of Nowhere

Written by
Speechless. Numb. Stuck in "nowhere" trying to figure out how to get to "somewhere". How do you get to a place that doesn't really exist. What if your "somewhere" is the place you are right now. You think it's "nowhere", but it's really "somewhere". If that was the only car you would ever have, how would you take care of it? If that was the only house you would ever have, how would you fix it up? If that was the only spouse you'll ever have, how would you treat them? If that was the only job you would ever know, how would you work it? Stop and look at all of the responsibilities you have right now. Notice especially the little things you have to do. It might seem such a small task and seemingly insignificant, but it's not really. If you show yourself faithful in the small things in life, you'll be promoted by God's hand. Don't you dare think that a person gets the credit for your promotion. It is God that promotes. He lifts up those whom He chooses and He puts down those also whom He chooses. So by what standard then does God look for in those whom He promotes. One thing, "Faithfulness". Jesus had a different picture of the Lord's house than what the religious leaders of His day. They needed to turn a profit. Worshipping God and offering sacrifices unto Him had to turn a profit. Jesus made a whip and went…

Who Am I

Written by
Where would I be if it were not for the Mercy of the Almighty God. His long-suffering on my behalf, His patience with me, His laughter over my victories and His songs sung over me in my darkest hours are beyond my comprehension. Just to wrap my heart around His great love displayed to me I really don't understand. As Rusty Goodman penned these words so many years ago, I find myself lost in the true depth of their meaning today. WHO AM I by Rusty Goodman When I think of how He came so far from glory Came to dwell among the lowly such as I To suffer shame and such disgrace on Mount Calvary take my place Then I ask myself this question "Who am I" Who am I, that a King would bleed and die for Who am I, that He would pray not my will thine Lord The answer I may never know Why He ever loved me so That to an old Rugged Cross He'd go For who am I When I'm reminded of His Words "I'll leave you never Just be true I'll give to you life forever" I wonder what I could have done To deserve God's only Son To fight my battles until their won For who am I Oh Lord, thank you for keeping me in Your reach!. Thank you that you are Rich in Mercy. Thank you for never giving up on us. Praying for you today! He's not through…
