A Life Poured Out

To Bear Much Fruit in the Shadow of a Mountain
I was so impacted by this one sentence I read in Ann Voscamp's book called The Broken Way that my spirit jumped within me. "The cells that only benefit themselves are known as cancer … Cancer is what refuses to die to self."1 I have been wrestling for weeks now with an issue of whether or not to succumb to external pressure and continue to silence the words God has been pounding on my heart to share with the world or … choose to be free. God never fails to speak when I openly ask for wisdom without telling Him how I want things to go. Here is my answer. This morning in my devotions it started with that quote above, where the whole chapte...

What You Need to Make the Christmas Season JOY Filled!

Fear not, I bring good tidings of great JOY
The last two weeks I have been encouraging the lighting of the advent wreath, why? The reason is easy, and intentional—I want to celebrate Christmas not just on the 25th but the whole month through. I invite you to join me on this Advent journey. December 1st we lit the "Prophet's Candle," symbolizing hope.

In the middle of the night I awoke to hear the Lord gently speak into my spirit. I am the Father of Light and telling the world in such dark times—matters. So, I reverently sit at my desk this morning with my long "to do" list carefully tucked out of view. I consider this wonderful title I was reminded of in the dark of the night. Jesus said in John 8:12 "I am the Light of the world....

You Are Invited!

The Bridegroom awaits ... is the Bride ready?
Have you have been invited to a wedding this summer? How would you feel if you were invited as an honoured guest to a royal wedding, or to the wedding of a famous movie star? I bet you would be thrilled and talking about it non-stop. Well I have an invitation, you have an invitation to the most spectacular wedding of all time where the King of Kings will be the Bridegroom and you will not be a mere guest, oh no, much better ... you will be the Bride. Jesus calls Himself the Bridegroom (Matt. 9:14-15 and Matt. 25:1-13) He called the church (all believers) the bride. Why? Because He knew that no matter how good a marriage is here...
