The other side of love and God’s grace – Isaiah 45:7

Tonight I'm so thankful that God has empowered me to live my faith out loud in America. As I read Scripture, He opens more knowledge, which I am bold about sharing with everyone who has eyes to see or ears to hear.

My goal is to see many in eternity, so I'm not always going to talk exclusively about how much God loves us, which He does.

But God is righteous and He is sovereign, and that's the part that doesn't tickle ears too well.

Note the following Scripture - God is in charge of both good and bad - whether we like it or understand it. 

Isaiah 45:7 I form light and create darkness; I make what is good, happy, and healthy, and I create woe. I, the Eternal One, make them one and all.

Notice: "I create woe." God creates woe and that makes many uncomfortable. Many do not believe that this side of God exists - they prefer to hear of love, grace and more love. Many popular churches and ministries cater to this crowd and it's deception.  

My hope is that everyone who reads this is inspired to seek God, to seek His wisdom and understand His knowledge. This is especially for those who are Christians. Use the power of the Holy Spirit that you have available - take that daring step with God!

As you step into the power God has given you, this all makes perfect sense. We don't have to worry about everything spinning out of control (and it is) because God is in control!

Sure, others can guide you, but ultimately it's about God and you. They won't be there when you give an account of the days He gave you on Earth.

Be bold for God friends! Evil is super bold right now. We must be bolder!

in your house, LORD God,

14 They will be like trees

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
