Planting Disappointment

Listening to a recent message by Kris Vallotton gave me a second option of what to do with disappointment or things that defer my hope.

I’ve been praying and I’d like to think also believing God for a specific breakthrough in my life. And I have worked rather hard to make sure my confessions align with my prayers, that I let only trusted people speak onto this area of my life.

Reckless Love for the 1

Over the past 2 years or so, I have come to love the music that comes from Bethel and one of the most recent songs from Bethel Music is ‘Reckless Love‘ by Cory Asbury. (He’s probably the same guy backing up in ‘Worthy of it all‘ by David Brymer at the OneThing 2011).

Her First Independent Steps

Don’t you just wish you could predict your future? Sometimes that future is a near future, other times, it’s a far future. For any of the two, wouldn’t it be handy if you could just tell what that future is?

take that trip

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt so overwhelmed that you thought your head was about to explode? Where things looked really grim and the thing at hand was just so important and life threatening or future life determining that you thought if you make a wrong move, the world might just stop spinning or you might just drown into nothingness?

No? Don’t worry, one is coming to a brain near and on you! Soon. Real soon! Trust me. Continue reading
