Your Choice

leave a comment »

Reject the one whose love brings sadness
Reject the one whose blessing brings a curse
Reject the one whose joy brings incredible remorse
Attractive for the moment, hideous for eternity
Tasty for a time, bitterness unending
Empty, hollow and perverse describe him
Yet why is his following so great?

Unlike that one, comes one with a sword
All will call Him, King and Lord
His love brings joy and peace that remain
Over and over, over again
His blessings add no sorrow at all
Comforts and heals after each fall

Wide is the path that leads to destruction
Narrow, so narrow is the walk with Jesus
Choose this day, who you will serve.

Worship – I Challenge You

leave a comment »

At the risk of being cyber-flogged, I want to challenge you to give up notions that worship is about/for us…It must become about one thing only…Expressing our intimate love for God; thus it must be exclusively focused on Him. In provocative movies, intimate scenes are “steamy” for a reason…to compel viewers to engage. Our worship must be so intimate and compelling that others WANT to engage.

Modern worship or dare I say entertainment affords much too much opportunity for spectators and reviewers. When a real worship service happens, EVERYONE knows it and leaves a different person than they were upon arrival.

Just Call His Name – He’ll Be There

with one comment

No more cheesy jingles
Or chips with my lunch, not even Pringles
Instead for you, a strong admonition
Worship God of your own volition
It’s there your mission becomes crystal clear
Where no other voice but His you hear
Seek His face, see His power
Day or night, no matter the hour
Call His Name in your dark despair
Don’t you worry, He’ll be there.

Current Drought Condition

leave a comment »

Because you have allowed the spirit of Jezebel and idolatry to control your assemblies, I the Lord your God have shut up the heavens and withheld the rain, just as I did in the days of Ahab.  Ahab’s wickedness and stubbornness brought on the three and one-half year drought.  Today, your drought in the natural not only signifies My judgment but also your spiritual condition.  Your continued reliance on self, reputation, and praise of men will bring famine, pestilence and further judgments from Me.

You must humble yourself in My sight says the Lord, repent for your wickedness, and declare the I alone AM the Lord your God and that you are nothing without me.  Take what is precious and return to Me says the Lord, and I will restore and preserve you in these last days despite all that will come against you. I will once again open the heavens and pour forth the rain you need.

A Glimpse of Father’s Heart

with one comment

– Those who have an ear, let them hear what He would say to them


One voice My Voice have I given you

One voice My Voice to hear and proclaim

One voice My Voice to shout aloud and declare My works

One voice My Voice in unity and blessing

There I command it says the Lord

There I will visit says the Lord

There I will move the hearts and minds of men and women

There I will change men and women forever

No longer bound to sin and sickness

No longer bound by systems of this world

No longer bound by opinions of men; but…

Fashioned for My Purpose

Fashioned for My Plans

Fashioned for My Return

Come and come quickly;

For a bride must prepare herself for her wedding

My Father is soon coming to get Me (for the wedding) and

We’ll meet you (there) soon.

Watch and pray

Seek Me while I may be found

Don’t be drawn away by your own desires or those of others

Wait on and for Me

Be still and know I AM.

Received 21 Jun 2009 during worship.

What a loving Father we have in God.  His thoughts and plans for us are incredible.  See what else He has to say in Matthew Chapter 7, verses 8-11

For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”

Obedience > Sacrifice

with 2 comments

Perhaps we’ve seen this, read it, heard it before. Subconsciously, some of us may have written it off as just another one of those quotes that has little importance these days. I’d like to give you dissenting opinion on that with a practical example.

Years ago I was employed by a major telecom company doing work in Information Technology. From what I could tell, my career was stable having recovered from a job transition a few years prior, and I had expectations for a rewarding future. As time went on however, I began to experience some turbulence (as I’ll call it). Each time I would pray about it, asking God for direction and or permission to leave, His answer was always clear. “Wait for me to tell you when to leave” is what I understood Him to say.

I will never forget that summer day when the buzz coming from Rumor Central was much louder than normal. As I began to think about what might be happening, I distinctly remember God telling me, “You’re going to be laid off today, but don’t worry. I’ve got everything under control.” I could not believe what I had heard. Within a few minutes, I was summoned to a room upstairs, with others. The events that unfolded shortly thereafter verified that indeed I was being laid off.

Strangely enough I remember being completely confident that I was headed for a better job. Yes there were times when I thought about my having 3 children under 10 to feed and clothe, not to mention some debt had accumulated. The assurance that God had everything under control helped me stay the course. His provision during this time afforded us three months of severance pay.

During the fourth week of my job search, I received a call. The caller asked a few questions to make sure I was the person that someone else had recommended. I was then invited to interview as a consultant for their firm at a major financial services corporation. I interviewed on Thursday of that week and a hiring offer was extended for the next Monday. I delayed the starting date a week to notify the other firms that had begun responding to my job search correspondence, that I had accepted employment.

Now for the best part…For two months I received my severance pay, plus my pay on the new job. As it turns out, the project for which I was consulting was a little behind, so that overtime was authorized. Because I was being paid on an hourly basis, this meant larger checks every two weeks!

Additionally, prior to my being “downsized”, I was compelled to participate in an Employee Stock Purchase (ESP) program at the telecom company. Once the initial layoff dust settled, I went back and researched the terms on that program. Ultimately I was given the option of having my funds returned, or having those invested funds immediately invested in company stock to be purchased at one-half the market price. I’d only wished (looking back) that I had invested more now; but I was reluctant to do so. The ESP program was only offered once every two years, and the results from the prior period weren’t too favorable. I requested the stock and consequently, doubled the value of my investment.

What am I saying? I am saying that what would appear to be a very dark and scary moment for you, your family, and your career may not be that at all. For me, it positioned me very well to pursue my Information Technology career goals and in addition, transition into new endeavors: Pastoral Ministry and writing. When I lost the job at the telecom company, I would never have believed I would be doing what I am now.

For those of you who have a personal relationship with God, I dare you to trust Him to bring you through whatever you’re going through and bless you while doing it. For those of you who don’t have that relationship, I dare you to develop one with Him. You will never be the same and you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
