HE IS RISEN!

The good news is that the ending of the battle has already been determined. Good won the battle when Jesus died on the cross and defeated death by returning to life. That part is finished. The battle is over and good has won the victory. Now WE just have to run out the clock, play our part in the physical timeline. But the good guy is not only fighting for us, He’s given us a helper, the Holy Spirit, who is always with us.

Choice

Did Jesus have to die or not? Did He really rise from the dead? Or is there wiggle room here? A lot of us want to plant our feet in both camps to make everybody happy, to be nice, to be comfortable. But we either believe in Jesus or we don’t. Jesus IS offensive. We are either willing to stand with Him on the offensive side of the fence or we aren’t. I believe it is important that we examine our own hearts and figure out where we stand.

#BeStill Meditative Prayer Challenge

My challenge to anyone reading this is to just try fifteen minutes of meditative prayer every day this year. If fifteen is too hard, try ten. Five is better than none. Meditative prayer has made all the difference in my own life. Connecting with God this way has healed me emotionally and spiritually. It has tapped me into a joy that I didn’t even know was possible. I have watched close friends heal from trauma and abuse after they began practicing meditative prayer. In my case, I have been completely healed from depression for over 23 years now. It works.

God’s Time

Spending time with God every day is an act of worship. It’s not always amazing. I don’t always hear his voice. I don’t always have visions. That part is all up to him. And that’s okay. My only responsibility is to make the time. This is an hour every day when my soul reaches toward the Creator of the Universe to seek relationship. This is the most essential way any of us could ever spend an hour.

The Free Gift

Finally, FINALLY I had reached the bitter end of myself. And Jesus met me there. He sent angels to save me. He followed me into the depths of hell and carried me back home. I am the prodigal daughter and he is my forgiving father.

Have you made a new years resolution for 2021? I’ve got one for you… I’m challenging you to try practicing STILLNESS. I believe God is calling us to draw closer to him this year.

The Magic of the Forest

I am mesmerized by the forest… by the intricacy of life in the woods. Every square millimeter teems with fantastic variety — mosses, insects, flowers, grasses, mushrooms, trees. Even the  rocks are filled with ever changing life. Only the most magnificent God could create all of this from nothing. Woods are my worship. And my worship is simply to be astounded at how awesome is our God.
