Psalm 124; 2 Cor. 11-13

I am so blessed. I am so grateful Father for all the blessings and all the wrestling You have allowed me to do withYou...I am so grateful for Your Son, Your Spirit. I am so grateful that YOU have allowed me into THAT community.....it's staggering....it's undeserved and nonetheless a fact....You did it for all of us , all we need to do is ACCEPT it.......and in the accepting YOU begin a mighty work in us....it's a flippin miracle!! Thank You Father for all of it!!

One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there's always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works. Joni Eareckson Tada

2 Cor. 13: 5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? 6 And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test.

Step up.....lean into the Spirit.....open yourself up to His love....pray for brokenness.....examine your heart.....let Him examine it. A seeking heart He never denies. The heart is decietful above all things...Jeremiah somewhere.....All stuff that deepens the journey...takes the focus off ourselves and deepens the journey. ....What if you know....What if THIS life is about NOTHING but Him??? Can YOU live with that?? What if.... what if all of us as Christ Followers were focused there? Not on denominations, not on Emergent or Evangelical or Post Modern or......not on anything but Him.....not on how much more we KNOW than someone else.....not on our own inabilities but on HIS capabilities.....what would HE do in all of us??? Where would HIS church go???

Understand I am writing this to myself....I have to ask it....I have to KNOW IT.....but maybe you need to too??

I've loved reading your blog! And what a small world it is, I'm discovering. Shenna is my good friend, who lives in Wisconsin, and that's how I got hooked up with your blog, because you left a comment on her photo blog. You said you'll be traveling from KC to a football game...I live in the KC area too, Prairie Village!

Ok, that was a long comment...hope it made sense!
