Becoming Like You

Heaven's Crush EP

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was out for a run and I was asking Father God if we would be alright.

After two years, I was hearing God again; I was becoming sure in a daily, hourly, minute-by-minute floodgate of His good presence. Sweeter still, in the last month, He was only saying one thing.

“I love you, Jason.”

We were several months behind on our mortgage, our fridge was nearly empty, our pantry was a ghost town. The bill collectors and the lawyers wanted their pound of flesh.

“I love you, Jason.”

But the question I’d asked Him seemed fair, “Will we be alright?”

I got home as dusk settled. There was just enough time to mow the small unruly patch of grass in our front yard. And there were still fumes in the mower.

I settled into the seemingly mundane routine, but my heart never left fellowship with my good Father.

“I love you, Jason”.

I stood on the front porch in the last light of day with one thought. It was heaven-sent, it was revelatory, it was bigger, and greater, and more powerful than any other thought I’d ever had.

“It’s measureless! His love is measureless!”

At that moment, everything in my life changed.

We would be alright.

… Laughing I went in to kiss Karen and hug the kids. Karen kissed me lightly but then she and the kids ran from me while informing me that I needed a shower.

In the shower, I sang, “I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you. Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own”.  I leaped from the shower, wrapped myself in a towel, ran into our bedroom, riffled through papers on Karen’s nightstand, found a pencil, then back to the bathroom dripping on the linoleum, I wrote…

I’ve been Your echo, I’ve been Your shadow
But my heart is to know You so I can be Your voice
I’ve stood on mountains, I’ve knelt in valleys
From glory to glory my heart will always be Yours
 
I’m becoming like You, I’m becoming like You
Its the cry of my heart my King, that I’d display Your majesty
 
I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you
Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own
 
Oh, let Your glory come down
Let Your goodness surround, we’re singing
Oh, this revival sound
It’s shaking the ground, its transforming us
 

Many of you have heard me lead this song in worship over the last years. Many have asked when I would record it.

This song is one of the four that will be on the EP titled Heaven’s Crush. This song is an invitation into transformative Love. There is life on this song and album!

My heart is to release this album with my new book, Prone To Love, which releases Feb 18.

We have 9 days left to raise the funding to get this album mixed. If you feel led, please give. If you can’t give, please consider sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Go to the link below for more information on the album, to give, and share.

Kindness

It’s His kindness that exposes our arrogance and hypocrisy, that knocks us off our high horses; the same kindness that violently knocked Paul on his ass exposing his elite violent unkindness toward God’s beloved. And it’s His kindness that exposes our ignorance, broken ideology, and oppressive theology, that gently reveals resurrection life; the same kindness shown on a road to Emmaus when God hid Himself so His beloved could discover union.

Why Can’t I Experience God’s Love?

“How do I experience God’s love?”
Because I write and speak on the always good love of our heavenly Father, that is a question I am asked often.

May You Know…

I have learned that this journey we are all on is about one simple thing, believing He loves us.

Five Signs You May Be Serving An Angry God

Discovering our Fathers pleasure is the most empowering thing a Christian will ever do. The opposite is true, believing Father God is angry or displeased will lead to an insecure and survivalist faith walk. Here are five signs you may be serving an angry or “displeased” God.

Dream Like An Old Man: Part Two, Vision & Dreams

And then, with the full understanding of what it cost, “old men,” well, they dream dreams!

And the authority and power of their dreams pull heaven to earth in ways never before seen. Their dreams empower generations to live heaven on earth.

I Don’t Know… But God Is Good

I don’t know but God is good. That phrase has been one of our family and ministry mottoes for years. It’s a faith statement that has served us well.

The first half of that statement is extremely powerful only because we believe the second half with absolute conviction. We have made it our position on everything.
