Boiled Down

 

I have taken a hiatus, of sorts, from writing during this demanding season, but the heat has at least served to boil something down for me.  Today, while doing the most mundane work, wrapped in sweat and dirt, I was given renewed purpose and also a new way to express my purpose:

To come to know my Father-God’s GLORY in new, deeper, more exciting, more relevant terms, whether the individual revelations be particulate or magnificent;  and then, in my own way, with His guidance, to constantly make known that GLORY to all the people who have eyes to see, and for all nations who have the ears to hear.

I have faith in His faithfulness to bring this to be in me.

Solid stone heart made tender and pliable.

Unworthiness made righteous.

Dreary unforgiveness fading as the grey flees sunrise.

His Selfless Love replacing selfish “love”.

To come to know and, in the knowing, to make it known…..

Yes, this will be do-able.

He boiled it down.

    Len, I am mostly silent lately, and when I write, only one subject matter finds its way to the keyboard and into words. I have felt confused and inadequate. I feel less confused and inadequate having read your post today. You have encouraged me. Blessings to you, my friend, Gloryteller…

      How good Father-God is to me to provide me with such a kind friend who encourages me and makes me feel useful.
      Bless you both, Wonderful Souls. Keep your eyes on His Glory!

    Oh, so very true dear cousin,and how real for us all. The day is coming and now is for the sons of God to be revealed. The counterfeit has had its day, a shallow Christianity that could not feed the empty hearts but could only judge what is righteousness and what is not through self -proclaimed wisdom. Now,, the heart of God speaks to His children and they hear, “I want you to love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and strength, and love my people as I have loved you. ” And finally His glory will fill the whole earth.

    How very true, dear cousin, and very real for us all! The day is coming and now is for the sons of God to be revealed. The counterfeit has had its day: a Christianity that could not reach the heart of mankind but could only judge what is righteous and what is not through false understanding and well meant ideals. And now the Lord is speaking to His children and they hear Him, “I want you to love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and strength, and to love My children as I have loved you.” His passionate and well-laid plan is coming to pass as the church is being stirred to life, real life, exposing its flawed past and awakening with a new purpose, to no longer be Pharisee or judge, but to be disciples, to love every man or woman right where they are at, and to not rest until they see that the love He has for us is for them too.

      Thank you, dear, bright cousin of The Light! I demand; no, the Spirit of Truth demands that you publish that paragraph on your own site! Together, we cousins, we brothers and sisters, we sons and daughters will inexorably reveal Him (for them to know), His Kingdom (can be theirs), His Plan (for their great benefit), His Love (for them – they can know and have it all)!

      Seek first the kingdom of The Highest Lord and ALL ELSE WILL BE ADDED TO YOU !

      It is true!
      I am living proof!
      YOU are living proof!
      I AM is Living Proof!
      He alone is Living Truth!

      Do I know you? Fret not, my good friend, for fruit is ripe’ning on the vine.
      As soon as I feel my prayer support reaching its peak, this work will be accomplished!
      Ha! =)

About The Music Links Below

I don't own, and have no claim on, these music videos. The following are simply links inside my website pointing back to the original locations of the videos. The names of the creators of these videos are cited wherever possible, and only "embedding-enabled" selections are used.

The Basic Christian Library

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. This is fundamentally what Christianity is all about.

"The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. Another converted atheist presents His compelling case for believing in Jesus.

"Left To Tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza. This profound work is her own extraordinary story of endurance, discovery of the Holy Spirit, grace, healing, and an astonishingly compelling account of the necessity for forgiveness.

Compelling Christian Fiction Reads

"The Circle" 4-book series by Ted Dekker.
A man is the bridge between two very different worlds. Sound familiar? Can he save both? This T.D. work is brilliant in my book.

"This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti. Tales of spiritual warfare from a unique perspective. Stirred a small controversy, but sold millions. What are we Christians afraid of? Hey, it's fiction!

My Signature Story

"I AM NOT MY OWN" is the piece that inspired the building of this site. It is the story that this site, as well as my life, is centered around. This letter to you is the one i would most like for you to read out of all the ones you will find here, because it describes how profoundly the works of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit can change one human life.

For Your Reading Enjoyment, This Is Like A Park, Use It, Enjoy It, and Leave Everything Where You Found It.

The content here's not to be used,

But to only be read and perused.

If you copy it off,

My lawyer's not soft,

And your fortune is mine - you got sued!
