Life is Easy

Life is Easy Did you know life really isn’t hard at all? Life is easy. When we try so hard to control life, life is hard because life can’t be controlled. But when we know life can’t be controlled, life is easy because we are along for the ride. Then we see the ride has a…

What love looks like

In the last two posts I’ve talked about motivation and how we are the divine manifestation of love in this reality.  We are love, the essence and substance and product of love.  We are what other-centered, unconditional love looks like.  God, being love, expressed Himself as love to become us.  In doing so, He took…

Fear never motivates

In the last post I talked about “What’s your motivation?”  The truth is love motivates you.  Love is what you are.  Love made you.  We forget that truth.  We operate out of the opposite.  We operate out of fear.  Fear never motivates.

Have you ever been inspired? Have you ever witnessed a great moment and felt something inside that pulled you beyond your own perceived limitations? Have you ever thought “I want to do that” or “what if I could do that?” How about an athlete that breaks a record or a baby that takes a first…

What Now? – not an disinfectant

Disinfectant: a chemical liquid that destroys bacteria or causing the destruction of bacteria. Once we know our inclusion and union and adoption as a child of God…once we “see” who we really are and we “see” our Abba…then what, what now?  If you haven’t ventured into the depths of sonship, you should check out these posts…

Who me, really, are you sure?

Yeah you! At the center of this journey is the discovery of who we are and who God is and how it all fits together.  Of course there are the legacies we leave and the lives we touch.  There are the relationships we build and the impacts we have on others.  There are the interactions between…

Why a Stumbling Block?

1 Cor 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles (ESV) Why do you suppose Paul calls Jesus on a cross a stumbling block and folly?  In religious circles, of human effort and fallen Adam wisdom, it is often explained as “His morality is impossible for us to live…
