in the blur


sun rising
through rain
softening the edges
we inhale
living in the blur
waiting for what the day 
will bring

and His voice
quiet as ever, whispers
look through My eyes

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever. 
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 The Message

rainless storm


rain threatened all afternoon
skies darkened in layers
the wind grew fierce
reversing waves, chasing
water away from shore

later, when stillness fell
sun blazed beneath the clouds

teach me to wait
for the promise of glory

sunset to sunset

from sunset to sunset
days slip fast away
pain steals my time
yet I pray no twinge
no gasp, no tear
is wasted

use this as You will, Lord
use this as You must
but let it not be in vain

If you will receive yourself in the fires of sorrow, 
God will make you nourishment for other people.
Oswald Chambers

lake life


we are surrounded
hemmed in
hushed by His creation
every wave
shimmer on still water
sun streams
and clouds rolling in
reflect His glory

we breathe Him in
true life

who can deny

new and glorious
each and every day
fresh hope, mercy
and promise

who can deny
the work of His hand?

His chosen

My Father said, as I sat in silence:

I have called you
and set you apart
and you not longer "fit"
in the world around you, no
not even the "Christian" wrld
for many call themselves by My name
but their hearts are far from Me

I know you feel the distance
and discomfort
you do not "fit in"
your edges are rubbed raw

allow Me to soothe and smooth
the rough places
but do not expect that to make you
a better fit
you are odd by design
by My hand
for My purposes
in My Kingdom

the world also did not welcome Me
but you carry My message
for this you were chosen

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
 a holy nation, God’s own people, 
that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him 
who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Get that

Yesterday morning, in a quiet time during corporate prayer, we were told to ask the Lord about His great love for us. His words came quickly...

I love you. I want you to "get that"
finally, fully understanding
because I said it, and I mean it and you can trust it
then - MOVE ON

I want you to know
so that you need no longer waste time pondering
Then I will be able to move 
and use you as I will
Then you can move to My heartbeat
There is so much we need to do.
