Glimpse

Have you seen me?

In the night, in the dark
By the streetlamps, abandoned cars

We have spoken

In the allys, in the streets
In vacant desert lots

Did you hear my voice?

In the distance, on the wind
In the sun, the pouring rain

Or feel me touch your hands?

Pray for summer in the blizzard
For Warmth in the dead of winter

I offer understanding
Consolation reimagined
Meaning redirected
Purpose wrapped in life

Have you given away your reason?
Your substance or your time

Everything has its season
It’s reason and it’s rhyme

Can you read the message?
Written on your walls
Answering the call

Do you feel the expectation?

creation is still waiting
For the moment, for the day

That you find the way

catch a glimpse of meaning
And step into the light

Time To Heat Things Up!

Today, I have an amazing (and young) guest blogger who is on fire for the things of God. Somehow, between playing on multiple worship teams, practicing, and eating tons of peanut butter, Aaron has found time to become a pretty good writer. You can read more of his blogs at  http://twofridays.wordpress.com/   ….enjoy!

There is a coming revival. A move of God is coming that’s going to be unlike anything yet. God is going to reconstruct the church from the inside out. People are going to encounter Jesus like never before. The Holy Spirit is going to move in huge ways. The worship, prayer, teachings, and every other aspect will be spirit lead.

Now, naturally, Satan is NOT looking forward to this. He is going to do everything in his power to stop this from happening. He doesn’t want the people of God to get lit on fire for God. He’ll try every trick up his sleeves to keep us divided. But the Devil and all of his demons can’t stop Christians who are burning from the inside out. We’re going to burn through every effort Satan makes against us.

Our job as Christians, and as the church, is to get in God’s face, and let him light the flame until we are BURNING UP! And then we need to keep that fire ablaze day and night until it spreads EVERYWHERE! It’s time to step it up! We need to give our all to God. In worship, in prayer, in our study of His word, in all areas of our lives. Saying we want the fire of God to come upon us is one thing, and actually contending in prayer and worship for it is another. And if we won’t do it, God will find others who are willing. We can’t let age, gender, race, denomination, fear, pride, or anything else get in between us and our Lord.

The question is…are you going to burn like a wild-fire and go after God like never before?…or sit back in the shade and watch other people spread the fire and do the work because you might have to get out of your comfort zone? Are you going to contend for the Holy Spirit to move in our lives, or shy away because sometimes, things can get a little crazy when we give him control?…Are you going to move in your gifts?…or not move in your calling because of what others might think, or say?

There is a choice, that we as this generation have to make…To go after God like we’ve never done before, or be luke warm and get spit out of God’s mouth cause he can’t use us. We all have a calling God has on our lives. We can do this! Let’s do this! Let’s burn this thing up! You are called!   : )

GRACE… AND THE END OF TIME

Today is a day of grace. As a matter of fact, If you’re reading this, It is by grace. 5 days grace actually, but that’s not the main focus here.

Grace has been given to every one of us. God is full of grace, and He extends it to you and me unconditionally. But is it unlimited?

Over this past weekend, the latest ‘end of the world’ barely held our attention. Most people and especially Christians treated it like a joke,and to the extent that It flew in the face of scripture, that should be expected. There is, however, an end coming, and that’s a sobering thought. Time will eventually run out. We are not yet living in eternity, and all things temporal WILL pass away. Like it or not, we are all on a time-table and the kicker is, we don’t really know when ‘time’s up!’ do we? And It’s not just the ‘end of the world’ I’m referring to. Sorry to say it, but we’re all gonna die sooner or later.

So how much grace do we have? How long do you have to pray Into someones’ life before THEY run out of time?  Or talk to them about the Lord? What has God called you to do in life? Do you know? Procrastination is not one of the gifts of the Spirit! There is a timing to everything (see my blog on timing!). The book of Ecclesiastes says there’s a time for every purpose under Heaven. God has prepared good works for you and I to ‘walk’ in from the foundations of the world. What Has God called you to do? What has He called me to do?

Grace and time are Interwoven. There is a TIME for every purpose under Heaven. Grace is unconditional. But how long do you and I have before time runs out? Let’s seek Gods’ face in order to know His heart for our lives. Let’s do it before it’s too late. Amen?
