Every Breath I Breathe

A Prayer For The New Year





Oh, Poppa, it’s a beautiful day!

You’re comfortable in my skin, and I am comfortable being Your skin…Christ in me!

You are here, in me and around me, filling every atom and cell, absorbing every bit of darkness, every lie, every distortion. Every breath I breathe,


Whispering praise,

completely at rest,

expectancy rising.

Thank You, Father, that I get to live in You today!

This is our day.

Light up our world today.

Every city, every county, and every state throughout this nation. Peace be still!

Light up this world with Your truth and Your love.

You’ve got this, and I can rest right here, right now!

A Prayer

My crafted morning prayer goes something like this.

With one hand on my head and the other over my heart.

“Oh, Father, thank you, thank You, thank You, that I get to live in You today! This is the day that You made! I rejoice in it!

Thank You for this union, this oneness with, and in You! I soak in Your love today…

Christ in me, yes, it’s Christ in me, every day as I am on my way, it is Christ in me!

In You, I live, move, and have my being!

Today I live from this place of rest, fullness, bounty, wholeness, wellness, affection, and love!

Peace flowing like a River!

The fountain of joy welling up into life!

Thank you, Jesus! For giving life to me!

May everything I do become the thing that pleases You…


Love you, Lloyd
Happy New Year!

The Nature of Soap

Next to the toilet was a large barrel filled with clean-ish water. Floating in the water was a big plastic cup. The cup was for both flushing and bathing. Oh, I forgot to note, the toilet room was also the shower.


In this conversation Leif, Mark Appleyard, and Jason dive into Leif’s new book, The Love Awakening. Through personal stories, the guys discuss the powerful, supernatural Baptism of Love that breaks off shame, affirms identity, and reveals the unconditional love of the Father. This is a life-giving conversation around union, evangelism, and the miraculous.

Revelation: It’s Always An Encounter

Truth can be read about and discussed but to own revelation requires some form of experience. “God loves you,” is simply a statement of fact. But the statement doesn’t hold any power until His love is engaged.

I Was Born to Do This

Then we walked down the streets of JT Williams, a struggling community, to pick up twenty or so sweet kids. We took them to their local school parking lot, gave them a snack, told a Bible story, played games, and worked on a craft together. I loved it.

10 Rules Of Engagement For Social Media

Sacrificial love is my guide. I know this love to be like Jesus on a cross, unoffended, forgiving, and reconciling all to Love. There is no “us and them” in this good news, we all belong to each other. With that in mind, here are some thoughts I have had through the years…

I Exist To Know His Love

My story and yours will continue to be one in which we discover our Dad and in turn ourselves. Discovering our Father is the most important thing we will ever do. It transforms us and sets us free to live as His sons and daughters. The good news is, Jesus was sure in his identity and because of this, we can also become sure in ours…
