Direct Affect

Our perspective of God has a direct affect
on our ability to trust Him.

When we realize and see that
 He is Good and
nothing but Goodness;
And that Jesus is
 the embodiment of perfect
and complete Love,
Our ability to
trust Him increases.

Truth & Faith.

Capable of Blessing?

The other day I did something I ever rarely do.
I emailed five friends 
and asked them for prayer 
concerning some pressing issues 
my family and I are facing.

It was revealed to me that out of the five, 
at least one had made some assumptions 
and passed judgment on us 
(hence my reluctance to 
ever ask for prayer to begin with).

Job called his friends who did this to him
 “miserable comforters”.

Thinking about this situation begs two questions.

First, is our perspective of God 
(despite all that Jesus has accomplished)
 still so warped
 that we see Him first or only as
 "The Punisher"?

And second, 
are we, as humans, 
truly incapable of simply 
asking God to
 bless our fellow man
 without first making assumptions 
or passing judgments?

I mean…seriously?

One of the most basic
and fundamental
truths about God 
is that
He Is Good!~

Why are we not shouting it
from the roof tops?

Why isn't it
making the top list
of status posts
social media blurb?

I wonder...

Grace is Grace

Lately I have noticed a lot of mud slinging 
going on within “Christian” circles 
here in the U.S.

One group preaches “The Gospel of Grace” 
or Extreme or Radical Grace, 
while another screams that 
what they are teaching is of the devil.

The act of grace is defined as
 giving or extending something good to someone 
who is undeserving of anything good. 

It cannot be qualified, quantified or
 given out in degrees or measures.

Attempting to do so is mans way 
of justifying standing in judgment of another person.

Grace either is or it is not.

Jesus has extended Grace
 to every one of us by 
already forgiving us of every sin.

To accuse and slander others 
because their relationship with 
and understanding of God
 is different than yours or 
does not fit within your agenda
is error.

It was the religious leaders; 
the ones who claimed to know God the best; 
who accused Jesus;
 the One who truly knows God 
and is God;
 of being from the devil and
 demanded that He be crucified.

What irony.

Grace is Grace.

Either we give it or we don’t.

End of the Rope

Have you reached the end of your rope?

Are you tired, weary, can’t go on any longer?


That’s where Jesus is;
Waiting for you to cast your cares upon Him;
Willing to trade His burden for yours.

His burden is light.

What are you waiting for?
