Jesus knew that Peter would strive hard for what he perceived as a good and personally satisfying result. Yet what needed to be conveyed is that ‘good results’ may not be on Peter’s terms, so Jesus was direct to elucidate the matter.
God unfolds us petal by petal with grace, in love
Part of worship is to share our heart-felt testimony of Christ, His salvation, and how God moves us along life’s trail to run in the path of His choosing. With these personal notes, 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.
