God's Whisper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When my daughter Eva was an infant and even into her toddler days, she was very attached to her momma. She had to know where Karen was at all times. And if she lost track of mom it had the potential to be devastating, for everyone. And if Karen ever went anywhere without Eva, we had to be very strategic regarding her exit strategy.

Occasionally Karen, not thinking, would walk out the front door to get the mail. The mailbox is only 25 feet from the house and it would take no more than a minute before she returned. But if Eva happened to see her mom leave, she would cry like it was the end of the world.

I would hear Eva crying and come running. I would scoop her up, hold her close and whisper how it would be alright. I would do all this as I took her to the front window to point out her mom, just feet away.

Eva was too young and too immature to understand that her momma was just outside the door. And I knew this.

And I wasn’t annoyed by it. I wasn’t angered by her immaturity, I didn’t berate her. I recognized that even though I knew the whole story, Eva didn’t. My little girl didn’t understand what was taking place, so I just held her, “I love you, its ok honey, Daddy’s got you. Mommy is coming right back.”

I saw from her perspective and valued it even though it was not the whole story. I positioned myself in her pain, I acted with compassion, kindness, maturity and love.

My point? God is the good Father.

He is always running to us, always scooping us up, always positioning Himself in our pain. He is compassionate, kind, mature and loving.

But all along the way He is giving us access to His perspective. If we can but just lean in, we would begin to see how He sees.

He will scoop you up today, He will wipe your tears away, and he will lift you up so you can see the way He sees. And I pray that you see the way He sees and you experience His peace and joy today.

Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

Yes, repent! Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

A Religious Ass

When I go to sleep I’m His favorite! When I wake up I’m still His favorite! Whether I behave well or fail miserably I’m still His favorite! This union, oh this union is the game changer! Christ in me and me in Him!

What About Sin?

“What about sin?” she interrupted rather forcefully. I was sharing with about ten college students on the perfection of our Father’s love. She had started to get jittery when I began discussing how we are prone to love. I thought it was the coffee, but it wasn’t.

I’m Not A Sinner

        This is an excerpt taken from, Prone To Love There were two trees in the garden of Eden. Well, there were probably thousands of trees in the garden, but there were two particular trees God went out of His way to acknowledge. First, the tree...

Practicing in His Presence

You can only take people where you have already been. If you go first, you will stir those around you to hunger for a greater revelation of God.
