God unfolds us petal by petal with grace, in love

Part of worship is in sharing the witness of Christ and the hand of God moving through one’s life.  And with that understanding, I am about to place into plain view the work of His love in and around my being.  To God be the glory for the things He has done.

The LORD is my everything.  How can my lips be silent?  From them pour words and songs of praise hour by hour.  My mouth may be closed but the song plays in my spirit all day long.  Days are filled with diversions and interactions that must be tended to.  Even so the praises for my LORD never go quiet or still.  This love…the power of His gracious love is overwhelming.  When He speaks into my spirit it nearly lifts me off the ground with its impact, yet moves my heart at the most subtle touch.

The words written here testify to the unfailing love of God. He is alive, He is real and He is more involved with our existence than we dare to grasp. This love gives hope, truth, and change; and it brings us into Life. If even one person finds renewed hope in reading these words, then my joy would be complete. That is why this site came to be.

Lord, let my lips be silent except for words that reach out in love.

IF?

Believe IN

Jesus was not at the pool where he received sight, so the only way the healed man knew Him was by His distinctive and memorable voice. THAT voice was now right here with him. It came from a face with eyes of kindness and hope asking "Do you believe?"

Name that Servant

When livestock goes missing it needs to be found and brought back. Such was the situation for a man named Kish. (1 Samuel 9)

Pray as One

We are to pray WITH one another. There is beauty in shared prayer, for it can be deeply connective and holy. This is not the corporate prayer we repeat in church or at an invocation. No, this is the passion of the Holy Spirit leading two or more to unveil the true matters of the heart, pleading and moving along as guided by the Spirit.

The Special Plate

Saul had gone in search of his father's livestock and ended up at the home of a seer. A special plate had been served to him. This was too much. How would he tell the folks back home? Inner thoughts race when the unknown steps up to greet us.
