“I’m not like your father.” – God

Some of you need to hear this today, and really hear it. This song is powerful.

Thankfully, Jesus made a way to make broken men whole. I don’t think all men are broken, because I believe Jesus heals. Yet, I do think men experience brokenness at times and I do think that before knowing Jesus everyone lives in a state of brokenness. Thankfully, forgiveness brings life, freedom, and newness. So, if you need to forgive your dad today, whether on your own or with him, do it. Take a step forward. Your experiences do not define who you are.

Sit back and hear the Father whisper acceptance and love to your heart.

trust: walking into the unknown with purpose

 

“THE WAY OF TRUST IS A MOVEMENT INTO OBSCURITY,

INTO THE UNDEFINED,

INTO AMBIGUITY…

THE REALITY OF NAKED TRUST IS THE LIFE OF THE PILGRIM

WHO LEAVES WHAT IS NAILED DOWN, OBVIOUS, AND SECURE,

AND WALKS INTO THE UNKNOWN

WITHOUT ANY RATIONAL EXPLANATION TO JUSTIFY THE DECISION

OR GUARANTEE THE FUTURE.

WHY?

BECAUSE GOD HAS SIGNALED THE MOVEMENT

AND OFFERED IT HIS PRESENCE AND HIS PROMISE.”
