…a short burst of inspiration of what God is speaking to me, a prayer, a quote, a song, or whatever else.
It’s been a crazy week–so busy. When I come up against all the pressures of the “have to’s” and the “should’s”–it’s nice to take a breath and meditate on God’s grace and life.
Ephesians 1:5 (Amplified)
For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—
I had heard this song before, but a few days ago I heard it (if that makes sense). I encourage you just to close your eyes and take a few minutes to breathe it in. It’s beautiful and the words are powerful.
A father to the fatherless
A healer of the brokeness you make
Beauty from the ashes
A helper to the helpless
A fighter for the hopeless you Love
Those who are alone
Doesn’t that just make your heart sing? What helps you when you need a breather?
I believe in the value of others in this journey of life and faith, and I want to connect with other people, connect others in real ways, and connect everyone I come across to Him. I have a beautiful wife, Andrea, and four wonderful children (and we are also a foster family). I'm the lead pastor of Breakthrough Church in Juneau, AK where we get the opportunity to practice authentic community and live for a vision bigger than ourselves. I also run a website development company called Spark2Flame where I help others reach their full potential online.
