All there is to see is Jesus — for you to see Jesus in every person — and every person to see Jesus in you.
Pain’s always a fuel — that drives you to escape, or drives you to grow.
Your job is not to find love. Your job — is to find all walls you’ve built to keep love out.
We only think we might write the story different because we don’t know the same things the Storyteller knows.
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.
God sees the broken as the best and He sees the best in the broken and He calls the wounded to be the world changers.
He’s in the love that always finds a way to find you.
For such a time as now, we live shaped like a Cross, reaching right out, because this how He begins to reshape the world.
Life’s not about growing your career, your bank account, your retirement fund, your platform, your status — life’s about growing your soul.
God so forgave the wrongs of the world, that He bled for the rebirth of the world.
Even if it feels like nothing is turning out as you ultimately hoped, He who is Hope Himself is turning things around for your ultimate good.
God’s Word is the only thing that never falls apart — and holds us when we are falling apart.
Sometimes it’s hard to look love square in the eye and accept the acceptance. Is this why we turn from God?
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.
Let’s talk — I’d love for us to get to know each other…
