bring it on!

nobody likes to get smashed around in life… but it’s those times of getting knocked around, over your head, out of breath… it’s those times when god reveals who really are the ‘wise’ ones. who are the ones that have really invested their lives in doin’ kingdom stuff.

it’s kinda scary, but it’s kinda cool. the season of shaking is also a season of surprises.

bring it on!

i used to have a bizarre idea of hard times… god, why are you picking on me? but now, it’s different. count it all joy when you encounter various trials! i’m way over my head… but there’s favour here. i’m out of breath… but there’s favour in here somewhere. am i crazy… absolutely!

bring it on!

do i like hard times? dah no, that’s stupid. but “leading my mind” to be joyful is not the same as pretending i enjoy it. ‘consider’ in the original greek = ‘lead your mind’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

this is the season… but don’t take on someone else’s vision. jc has been building things into your life. they are not necessarily the things you wanted, or expected, or even were aware of. but this is the exciting part… the seasons when the rain & the wind of life just seem to be beating against your door… those are the very seasons when the true value of what jc has been doing in you is actually being revealed. it’s scary, but its fun.

a season of surprises…

jc is building his ekklesia… a people with the grit & determination to actually take hold of what god has declared for planet earth. the whole earth is filled with his glory! and you get to be a part of it.

a season of surprises…

the season of wind & rain beating against your life is like the opening curtain at a concert. jc is revealing his stuff, his ekklesia, & it’s good. very good.

bring it on!

Reckon it nothing but joy, my brethren, whenever you find yourselves hedged in by various trials.  James 1.2
