I have been thinking a lot about the enormity of God. His vastness and all encompassing presence and power. Many interpret this “massiveness” as sovereignty. This massive God can do anything He wants with our lives and we can either appreciate the blessing or the correction. Our response is what […]
I was mean to God today. I knew I was being mean and I said it anyway. It made me feel better to just let him have it. The main times I feel God are when I am driving and when I am at church. I think it is really […]
Hebrews 10:19-20 (CEV) 19 My friends, the blood of Jesus gives us courage to enter the most holy place 20 by a new way that leads to life! And this way takes us through the curtain that is Christ himself. Why do we want to enter the most holy of places in God? […]
I have not written in a while because God has been teaching me how to be more bold. My entries in the past have been doctrines that have been more widely accepted. I never wanted to offend so I refrained from expounding on the beliefs that cement my life. This […]
I have been hearing God try to get through to me lately by reminding me of His love. I would have this feeling of discomfort, hurt, fear and all I could hear God say was “I love you.” “Really nice God. Thanks. I know that.” was my instinctive reply. I felt […]
Is it worth it to play by the rules? Do rule-breakers have more fun or find more obstacles? What is too safe? What is too risky? Emotion says leap while reason says stay. Which is right? Which is noble? Damned if I do and damned if I don’t? We have […]
I am young. 30 years old. In my three decades, I have made mistakes. I have wandered. I have made decisions in fear. I have made decisions in peace. I have failed, succeeded, thrived, lost. You can say I have constructed an eventful life. Donald Miller would agree that it […]
I encourage you to take a seat in your favorite place, have your Bible in your lap and open your heart and spirit to a the final installment of a teaching that will provoke, shake and soak you thinking. You will leave that chair never the same. Be prepared for […]
David is continuing his teaching on what 2 Cor. 4 really teaches about the death of Jesus. We are beginning to discover how His death destroys the dead in us and revives us to the same light and life that raised Jesus from the dead. This is too exciting to miss! […]
David Baird is beginning his first teaching on a series called “Beyond the Present”. In this first teaching, David introduces the idea that we can have the mind of Christ, continually walk in the will of the Father and begin to expect that what we ask God to do He […]
2 Corinthians 4:8-10 says this: 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. What […]
Paralyzed and aching for escape, I drop to the floor. My senses are held hostage by one pursuit: the need to breathe. My mind is being capsized by thoughts of pain, fear and utter dread that lead to an insurmountable knowing that death is imminent. Weakened and alone, with my […]
That prayer is our prayer. The agony He suffered is no longer ours to bear. The agony of making the right decision is over. Sharing is caring!
We have been given the mind of Christ. All things have been made known by His spirit. Sharing is caring!
My life does not look like the promises in the Bible. I want it to be a life that abounds in prosperity, healing and constant peace. I have been asking God (with great intensity) how do I bridge the gap between my life and the life you want me to […]
