Listen to Me


You know the scene…Key West, beautiful water, islands and beaches, mangroves and fish…you know the scene.  Maybe you don’t.  I was taking it in from 25,000 ft on my way to the operating area… .   It is really that beautiful.  Still I wasn’t distracted by all the scenery because I was on an important […]

Happy Birthday, 2 Years Old!


This month Alancetotheheart is two years old.  Wow what a journey it has been.  342 posts later I can say much has changed and much has stayed the same.  That sounds pretty cliché I know but let me see if I can explain. When I started writing I felt like the “great defender of God’s […]

The Giver of Color…the light of life!


Col 3:11 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. (ESV) When we step into the Kingdom and embrace the truth of Jesus’ finished work, we begin to “see” Jesus everywhere.  He is moving and working and changing and revealing and Loving. […]

Mess Makers – The great I am NOT


In “Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion” I tried to capture just a glimpse of what the incarnation means to us.  That is actually a funny way of putting since the incarnation means everything to us.  There is a definitive before and after.  We are in the definitive “after.”  We are one with Jesus.  We are included in […]

Mess Fixers – Believing


If you read the last post you might be thinking I am repeating myself.  I did get my first senior drink the other day.  I was at a fast food restaurant and the lady said “if you are 50 and over you get a discount drink.”  Well, I got a discount drink.  I choose to […]

Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion


Before the incarnation we had no internal intimate union with the divine triune Perfection. Now we can know God like Jesus and experience God like Jesus and be loved by God like Jesus and be an anointed son like Jesus. This is what Jeremiah was talking about. Heb 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness […]

Want to know your family tree?


We all love those stories of the hero who is suffering from amnesia and then “snaps out of it” to save the day.  Or there is the orphan story where the child was actually born of a royal family and stolen as a child to discover his identity as royalty.  Maybe you like the revelation […]

“Just who do you think you are?”


You can probably imagine I get this question sometimes.  When you step out in faith, when you really trust God and agree with His awesomeness, sometimes you will find opposition. Jesus said He came to bring peace but also divide.  The love of God is God Himself.  He doesn’t give love or have the emotion […]

Dunatos Baptisma


Catchy title, don’t you think?  Powerful baptism… In “Light and Darkness” I tried to “reveal” that the light as in “Jesus is the light of the world” is a revelation of the heart of our Father in Heaven.  And on top of that, Jesus “sheds light” on all the lies of the darkness and brings truth […]

200 Proof Grace


I think Hollywood has perfected the “mind altered” movies.  You know the ones.  The dad breathes in a gas that makes him want to attack his kids which is completely out of character with his normal mode.  Or the whole town gets infected with a virus where they all start fighting with each other.  In […]
