A Rant on the State of Things

Life is beautiful. I’m such a hopeless (but don’t want to be helped) romantic! I just love how God works in our lives when we let Him. Today is a GORGEOUS nearly-fall day…I could write sonnets and have a personal picnic. Why is it that God is so good and gives us such beauties and… Continue reading A Rant on the State of Things

Good Mornings

Mornings…today is one of those beautiful rainy mornings. The kind I enjoy writing on…when I smell the rain that pattered on my roof and dream a little dramatically that something glorious will happen today. The kind of morning when breakfast matters to me, getting ‘ready’ is put on hold out of the idea that I… Continue reading Good Mornings

Self-Control….and why did she pick me?

When I was 10 years old I was in a play called “Passport to the World” it was my first play aside from the Christmas nativity story every Church kid has ever been in. 🙂 We had to draw Chinese characters for the fruits of the Spirit. I always wondered if Karla (the director) had… Continue reading Self-Control….and why did she pick me?

What is Passion?

Today I remember men and women who answer this question with their lives.

Keith Green

I long to be as vividly passionate at Keith Green.

Jim Elliot

I beg Jesus for the purity and raw love of Jim Elliot.

Gladys_Aylward

The humility and courage of Gladys Aylward is the cry of my heart.

william-tyndale

The unmovable soul of William Tyndale, steady and founded in His God Almighty is what I long for!

000ajackiepullinger

And friends, my Joy would be overflowing if I had the willingness and child-like trust of Jackie Pullinger.

jesus-on-the-cross

Passion? His name is Jesus. His ever-lasting, unchanging, beautiful, perfect, raw and real love and passion is what drives US to passion. Because a passionatist loves company. I long to be a sword of the Lord. To destroy the giants IN the hand of God. I long to be a follower who did more than sneak behind Him to see what He did – I want to be apart of what He does. And if we ask, we are going to be apart of what He does. Because He isn’t stingy and with-holding. He longs for us to experience His passion. It’s up to us to say “Here I am. Send me.”
