I often hear people speak of “clinging to Christ,” and I’ve said it from time to time myself. I understand what’s being communicated in the phrase, and it is good, but the reality is, He is clinging to us. If it is all about my clinging then there is no rest, because if I relax […]

It hard to trust what you don’t know. It’s hard to trust someone you don’t know. The more time I spend with a person, who claims to be trustworthy, the more I discover for myself whether or not that person truly is. My spiritual Father used to say, about spending time with God and growing […]

Eccl. 3:11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, without which man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. God has set eternity in our hearts, and only when we set our hearts on eternal things […]

I find myself missing Him more and more. It’s not that I don’t have Him, it’s just that I’m becoming so discontent with anything less than Mary’s portion. If you remember, in Luke 10, Mary Magdelen is sitting at His feet, beholding His beauty and listening to His voice, as her sister Martha was busy […]

I’ve on a on a bed with memory foam and memory foam is so true to its name. No matter how long you lay on it, or how much pressure you put on it, it goes right back to the shape it was before. Our memories are just like that; no matter what you do, […]

How much would someone give for love, true, epic, life transforming love. Song of Solomon 8, says a man would give all the treasures of his whole house. That means everything in his life. He would give it all to be loved like that. The Lord said such a gift would be utterly despised, because […]

The first beatitude says “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Jesus came to preach the gospel to the poor. The Poor have a special place in the heart of God. He is so attracted to the unattractive of this world, who have nothing to offer but their hearts. […]
