All there is to see is Jesus — for you to see Jesus in every person — and every person to see Jesus in you.
Smiling at anyone is to awe at the face of God.
It’s worth risking wonder, because we can brave a culture of cynicism and outrage, but we can’t live in a culture devoid of wonder.
Be grace warriors in the world — not great worriers about the world.
God’s whisper is gentle, but nothing is more powerful.
When we remember the humanity of the other — there is no other. There is only us.
God doesn’t work on our timetables — He works on hearts.
He’s in the love that always finds a way to find you.
I glimpsed the joy beyond the curtain that was mine for the taking, and in that glorious, incredible moment, something in my heart shifted.
For such a time as now, we live shaped like a Cross, reaching right out, because this how He begins to reshape the world.
God so forgave the wrongs of the world, that He bled for the rebirth of the world.
His love for you is oceanic, His welcome of you is enthusiastic, His purpose through you is cosmic, His commitment to you is astronomic, and His hope in you is meteoric.
But faith is not measured by our ability to manipulate God to get what we want. It is measured by our willingness to submit to what He wants.
A flourishing human existence finds its source of power in God and is demonstrated through a life of love.
Nothing is beyond God’s capacity, ability, or desire to redeem, restore, and reconcile.
Let’s talk — I’d love for us to get to know each other…
