Another Realm

But now I am coming to You; and I am saying these things while I am in the world, so that they may have My joy fulfilled within them. I have given them Your word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. John 17: 13-14 There are times when we want to escape this nasty, trouble-filled world.  Yet, we must stay.   But just “staying” is not enough.

Moving Toward God


Sometimes I tend to hold back and stay in a comfortable place sort of oblivious to God. But my heart wants to move beyond that safe place and toward Him. I had a vision that I was in a room and the wall represented safety and the middle of the room represented the mysterious unknown place where God’s heart was.

A dear friend who I grew up with had a major stroke a few days ago.  He's in ICU and recovering slowly.    Yet, in the midst of their family's pain, I hear a calm, thankful confidence in their Facebook posts.   By what means does this concerned yet rejoicing tone exist? - In our broken world, we all suffer pain and loss....some small, some big.   Relationships will be broken, food will be scarce, friends will have strokes, bank
