Establishing Yourself in the “Void”

I was watching a movie the other night and one of the characters proclaimed, “I don’t know what is wrong with me, I feel so empty.” In the story line she was in transition. Her life had a pending new decision which meant letting go of all that is for soon what will be. In the mean time, her life was void, empty, seemingly stuck. I nodded as I listened to her mostly complain and cry. Drama will be drama. I understood her statement though. I think we have all been there. In “the void”. The void is that place where we think is dark and empty. It seems that way when we are there. In truth, though, it’s a place filled with expectation and creation. Remember, God created from that which was void and made beautiful things. The void is a place of learning to let go of what was for what will be. It’s a place of utilizing our faith and imagination to create new things. Yes, it is also an exercise in …

Love Trumps Rules

Have you ever heard the expression, “rules without relationship bring rebellion”? A person can try to enforce all the rules upon someone else but if there is no relationship all the rules in the world can not make someone love or obey. I can’t say why we get so caught up in rules in the Christian faith but it sure does not bring good relationships. Jesus’ way is the way of the Father’s love. His love is a love that covers even when we fail or make mistakes, and we all fail. Jesus came for the sick not the perfect. The irony is there is none who is perfect, so in the divine design he died for everyone. It’s our personal choice if we want to accept His ways or not. To be in Christ is to be in love. Honestly, who cares how a person prays as long as they do, or how a person dresses because it is God who dressed man and woman first in the garden of Eden. When someone opens …

The Lord is Close to the Broken Hearted

Psalm 34:18 “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” I’ve often heard our greatest witness for Christ is when we are broken in our hearts and pliable in the potter’s hands. He takes our broken pots of clay and remolds them into a bright and shiny new pot that will hold much more of His Spirit as we pour out to others who need a touch from the Master’s hands. In our brokenness we can be His hands and feet. We can bring to this world His light. Can we all agree that this world needs more Christ light in it? I am not sure I want to use the word “imagine” but for lack of a better word I am going to. Imagine a world where, through our brokenness, we become the greatest healers on the earth. Jesus walked powerful on this earth, but He also displayed a heart that could be broken. If this were not so then He would not have experienced everything a …

The Dirty Little Secret

I can’t wait for you to watch this video because I feel deep in my heart that the church and people of God are coming to a place of new understanding. This is to walk in the grace of God and not judgement or pointing fingers. Our position as the Body of Christ is not to judge others but to love them as Christ loves us. The church is a driving force here on earth in order to push back the darkness. She is not to be the darkness but to be the light of Jesus Christ. God bless you in your hearing!

Power Prayers

Looking back I think the most wonderful thing I have ever experienced has had to be powerful prayer with those who share the same faith. Power prayers give a lot of hope, and draw us near to Holy Spirit and Jesus! I always had been in awe of those who could just start praying and Holy Spirit would take over. The prayers became intense, touching, fulfilling, life changing, and often prophesy. Our prayer lives can actually help drive our lives. The right prayers can feed Godly intent and information into our minds, touch our hearts, and set us into the right direction. Power prayers can drive out the enemy and cut us loose from bondage, remove the wrong people from our lives, and set us free in ways nothing else can. Jesus is a powerful prayer partner and His promise is to be in our midst whenever we join together to pray! I have began a stream of power prayers and one of the first ones is posted onto my website. I hope you will …

Are You Backing Into a Tomb? Lazarus Come Forth!

The Lord’s promise is if we were to wake and find ourselves sitting in darkness that He would be the light that shines to bring us through. Sometimes life causes us to back into a dead place. Maybe we think God has forgotten us or that we have made too many mistakes to fulfill our calling or destiny. Take heart, Jesus is calling you forth!
