Standing at the Precipice

All of us who know Christ are standing at the edge of something big!  Why?  Because of the fact that we are indwelled by the Spirit of God and empowered by Him.  The big thing is different for each of us and the biggest thing that we are standing on the edge of is an eternity with Him.  But the big does not have to wait for eternity.  There are big things that Gd wants to do in our life now.  So what is holding us back?  The truth is it is our own fears and insecurities coupled with the desire to please others rather than Christ.  Far too often we allow the opinions and desires of other people to dictate what we will do for Christ rather than Christ himself.  You takes those opinions and then mash them together in the blender of life with our predicting fears and it is a recipe for a life full of doing NOTHING!   God desires to do exceptionally great things in our lives.   He takes us to the edge of a precipice, shows us the wonder out things He has made, extends His hand, and says “…

42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper[i]), and to prayer. 43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had.45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need.46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity[j]—47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.


The Power of Passionate Prayer

This blog past has credits by Melanie Holiday.  Why?  Well, unbeknownst to her, God was using her to bring cheer and joy to my downcast heart.  Mel has had a rough journey this past year in her battle with cancer (cancer sucks BTW) and God was using her to help me realize that God still has my journey in His very capable hands.  Now, what does all of this mean?  Well, time for some back story and then some really old backstory. 

Backstory on why I needed cheering up.  This journey of Sabbatical does not date back to October when I resigned.  No, it is a 2 year old journey, with God doing the most stuff since July.  The journey started December 2016 when God started doing something in my life that He does in the lives of people who He is preparing for change.  He makes them restless and the status quo is no longer acceptable and will never be acceptable.  Sometimes He is going to move them, sometimes He is going to use them as a catalyst for change.  I was not sure what He was going t…

22 “People of Israel, listen! God publicly endorsed Jesus the Nazarene[d] by doing powerful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know.23 But God knew what would happen, and his prearranged plan was carried out when Jesus was betrayed. With the help of lawless Gentiles, you nailed him to a cross and killed him.24 But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.25 King David said this about him: ‘I see that the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
26 No wonder my heart is glad,
and my tongue shouts his praises!
My body rests in hope.
27 For you will not leave my soul among the dead[e]
or allow your Holy One to rot in the grave.
28 You have shown me the way of life,
and you will fill me with the joy of your presence.’[f] 29 “Dear brothers, think about this! You can be sure…
