Have you ever asked yourself to define the presence of God? I mean going beyond the concept of His omnipresence. We all get that He's every where at all times. There is more to this concept. There is solitude. There is seeking (on both parts). There is depth to the stillness and a profound sound to His love for us.Henri Nouwen, in his book Out of Solitude says that "the secrecy of Jesus' ministry lies in solitude" and I agree.

My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. Isaiah 32:18 I have danced up and down the scale few dozen times in my adult life. My problem wasn't information; it was transformation. I could lose weight but it just kept finding me. Last spring I had some fairly significant health issues and decided to surrender my battle with food to God's capable hands. His presence gave me the present of hea»

“This side of Paradise, people are with God in such a remote and spotty way that their experience of Eternal Life is at best like the experience you get of a place approaching it at night in a fast train.

And how can my words of concern become so twisted to be interpreted as a guilt trip or judgement? Lord, I don't want to spend one more day dis»

If you follow my blog you know I recently started looking “at the birds of the air,” trying to “seek first his kingdom” instead of worrying about my life and “tomorrow” (Matthew 6:25-34).  What began as a morning devotional time in my backyard quickly became an overwhelming recognition that no matter where I am, birds are there. I would wake to their heavenly singing before my 5 a.m. alarm.  I started noticing the delicate, fascinat»

Come on, you know there are times where you do it, too. You keep trying to do one more thing for God as if He needs you. The good news is, He doesn’t. He wants you. He loves you and His desire is that you know Him and draw close to Him. Does that mean we shouldn’t desire to serve Him? No, but He wants us to serve Him with joy and love not pressure. He’s not a task master, He’s a loving Father and sometimes He just wants us»

      “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” Philippians 1:21 There is a place, a land of no shadows, where one sees every corner of redemption’s power. When you walk here, you walk in freedom. Every hindrance is removed, bondage wiped out and captivity destroyed. Like I saidfreedomunlike any felt before. Pain has no hold here, not just free of pain but no memory of pain, no remembrance of its grip. Unspeakable joy fills heart»

Question (from the Facebook community): “My marriage is full of pain and abusemy family is being torn apartwhere is God now?” About seven years ago, I went through one of the most painful stretches of life I had ever experienced up til that point.  What made this time so unique and excruciating for me was that I was doing every single thing I knew how to do to cling to God but I was not feeling his presence or his peace no matter what I tri»
