Who Are You?



Why are you here?

Are you random?

An accident?

Why does the sun shine on you?

Why do you live now?


You were 
created 
on purpose
and 
for a reason. 

You are loved.

You are not random.

You have 
never been 
outside of the 
Creator's sight.

You matter.

God hears you. 


Do you know you are loved?

Gospel of Peace


Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in  the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 

In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

Ephesians 6:13-18a

Water


...but whoever 
drinks the water 
I give them 
will never thirst. 
Indeed, 
the water I 
give them 
will become 
in them 
a spring of water 
welling up 
to eternal life.





Thanks

purple flowers, yellow flowers

memories
baked apples
Thunderstorms
not really thunderstorms
Heroes
villains who became heroes
hearts turned
An Avalanche of Blessings




What are you thankful for?

Cleaner


So she cleaned the palace. Not just physically, which she was very, very good at, but spiritually. Prayer was her real work. The dusting and polishing and mopping and shining were all secondary. The King passed by and her heart sang blessings for wisdom and to not do. Not that, she'd say deep within, and the King would turn. Some days he was like a spinning top. His decisions whirrled around and came to an unexpected end. 

His friends and enemies who gathered in the grand room to pay homage had slipped in through her prayers. The maid in the hallway was the most powerful person in all the world.

Hong Kong Sings


My brothers and sisters are praying in Hong Kong. 
This video is from two months ago. Today it was announced 
that the bill (allowing people to be extradited to China) 
has been withdrawn. Could it be the world is waking up?

All


For as the new heavens and the new earth 
that I make shall remain before me, 
says the Lord, so 
shall your offspring and your name remain. 

From new moon to new moon, 
and from Sabbath to Sabbath, 
all flesh shall come to worship before me, 
declares the Lord.

Isaiah 66:22-23
