Perhaps you, too, feel overwhelmed with too many things clamoring for your time and attention. Maybe you have felt scattered, like you’re doing so many things that you’re not doing anything well. Maybe you have even felt a bit of confusion in your time with the Lord, because there are so many different things to do and to practice and so many different places to go and things to engage with in the Spirit. Like me, maybe you have been trying to maintain all these natural responsibilities and spiritual disciplines out of singularity instead of realizing that, in Christ, you are multidimensional. … Continue readingMultiplicity & Jumpstart Update
In a recent encounter, I saw a herd of horses…. wild, fierce, strong, fast as lightning. At first they appeared to be untamed because they had no bit or bridle (yoke of man), but then I realized that they were the King’s horses.

Be strengthened this day. Be renewed in strength and grace and purpose. You are entering another gate and with that, promotion and increased authority and dominion… as you are trained to be His “wild” stallion. … Continue readingThe King’s Horses

Viewing what we are doing (and not doing) within the framework of transition has helped us to understand that transition is actually a rapid series of births and deaths, ultimately leading to a completely new wineskin which He can then fill. … Continue readingThe Old is the Womb of the New
If you’re feeling dry and purposeless, be encouraged. You are probably at the threshold of a season of new spiritual life. And, as Henri Nouwen says, “It is precisely in times of spiritual dryness that we must hold on to our spiritual discipline so that we can grow into new intimacy with God.” … Continue readingAre Spiritual Disciplines Legalistic?
