8.4.2020 – He can do Wonders with His Brush 🎨🖌

In the moment we take hold of His hand… He begins to prepare, sanctify, purify, dedicate, and reserve us—to make us holy and consecrated for His purpose… He takes us to a place of being “set apart”… “designated or separated for a particular use.” God’s ways are so far beyond our ways—He does things we… Read More 8.4.2020 – He can do Wonders with His Brush 🎨🖌

7.31.2020 – A Unified “Voice”

I’m realizing that right now, is a time that we —”the church” —are meant to be God’s “answer” and His “voice” of truth and hope to the earth. 💝☀️ But what happens when the church doesn’t have a purified, “unified voice?” Can the voice of the Lord be clearly heard through the church, to the… Read More 7.31.2020 – A Unified “Voice”

There is a battle raging… …and it’s all about “the voice.” My voice, your voice, the voice of the body of Christ as a whole. What happens when the enemy finds a way to “silence” us? To “shut us down” in response to fear. To “shame” us. To “disqualify” us. To “muzzle” us… To shut… Read More 7.30.2020 – It’s All About “The Voice”

I came across this song again yesterday… and it was like I was hearing it in a new and fresh way…. with “fresh ears” —if I can describe it like that.

7.27.2020 – “Noise Cancellation”

Did you know that “criticism” is the same as “condemnation”? The definition of “criticism” is, “the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.” “disapproval, fault-finding, denunciation, condemnation” Perhaps we’re learning to hold our tongue when it comes to criticizing others… …but what about that “inner critic”?

Confession: Sometimes I need reminding that the world is much bigger and deeper than this little piece of ground I’ve found myself standing on.
