My passion is transformation— both personal and cultural. Helping others discover their authentic VOICE so they can be lighthouses in the darkness.

RESTING IN THE LORD

Resting in the Lord is a condition of the heart that increases your spiritual acuity. The chaos and uncertainty of your circumstances drowned out by Papa’s loving voice.

Knowing Papa’s faithful and eternal promises are your armor and protection. Peace and hope cocoon you. Insulating you from the multitude of voices clamoring for your attention and allegiance.

Jesus understood the importance of resting in the Lord. Trusting His heavenly Father to be faithful.

Before beginning His earthly ministry the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness. Where water, food and people were absent from His daily existence for forty days and nights. It was here Jesus learned how to deny the desires of His flesh by total dependence upon Papa’s grace.

Unconditionally trusting Him.

Resting in the Lord is not a passive process. You must…

Deny the desires of your flesh.

Say goodbye to YOUR dreams.

Be obedient when your rational mind is screaming, “This is stupid—illogical!”

Ignore the advice of others when it conflicts with what Papa has asked you to do.

By resting in the Lord you are extending an open invitation to the God of the Universe. One that He promises to RSVP with an enthusiastic YES!

Transforming your life into one of legacy and joy.

"No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. For You will not leave my soul among the dead or allow Your holy one to rot in the grave. You will show me the way of life. Granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever." Psalm 16:9-11 New Living Translation

GOING TO WAR

Day’s darkness, night’s frostiness

Confusion, panic

Illness, debt, inconvenience

Plot their invasion

*

Sly thieves stealing precious time

Past, present, future

Strength, courage runs for cover

Not this once again

*

Haven’t I proven myself

Faithful, compliant

Why must I suffer, have not

My prayers unanswered

*

My child, have you forgotten

Testing of your faith

Creates mighty endurance

Brave maturity

*

I discipline those I love

Removing rubbish

Lethal thinking and living

So you are set free

*

No longer a slave to sin

An overcomer

Lacking nothing in this war

For your precious soul

*

Put on full armor of God

Truth’s belt around waist

The breastplate of righteousness

Sandals of Good News

*

Raise the shield of faith upwards

Quench foe’s fiery spears

Wear helmet of salvation

Grasp sword, word of God

*

Draw you strength from mighty God

The days are evil

Devil is prowling about

A roaring lion

*

Resist him, firm in your faith

Know the God of grace

Will personally restore

Strengthen, support you

*

The one who wants to love life

And to see good days

Must keep his tongue from evil

Lips from speaking lies

*

Turning away from evil

Doing what is good

Seeking peace, pursuing it

Compassionate, meek

*

Consider it a great joy

When you are tested

All who endure trials are blessed

Crown of life is theirs

Renewing— transforming your mind will require the removal of unrighteous, ungodly thought patterns. Papa accomplishes this by intentionally allowing you to experience tribulation and temptation. So they are exposed and expunged.

Because many Christians are more concerned with self-preservation than transformation. They fail to use these experiences as opportunities for…

Meditation and intimate, prolonged communion with Papa.

Sanctification— the cleansing of their hearts. Exposing to the light of Papa’s truth. Possessions, paradigms, people that will hinder or neutralize their Kingdom destiny. Once revealed. With Papa’s grace and wisdom can be modified or removed.

Solidifying their allegiance to Papa. Making the pursuit of His presence and will their number one priority.

Sadly, many refuse to discard paradigms that contradict Papa’s truth and wisdom. Keeping themselves imprisoned inside cells of…

Fear.

Sin.

Pride.

Selfishness.

Disobedience.

Spiritual immaturity.

Unfaithfulness.

Self-pity.

Pessimism.

Impatience.

Self-righteousness.

Judgmentalism.

Un-forgiveness.

Depression.

Give Papa permission to transform your mind. So He can open the doors that lead to a life of promise and victory.

"We destroy people’s defenses. That is their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God." 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 GOD’S WORD Translation
