Come to the Feast

Jesus has set a table of extraordinary delicacies before us, beloved ones.

He anoints your head with the oil of gladness and fills your cup so that it overflows without ceasing. In the joyous times and in the painful moments, despite the trials and persecution of life, He want to continually feed you with the knowledge of Himself and His love (Psalm 23:5). Feed upon His faithfulness.

All are welcome to come to Him. You who hunger and thirst for true love, beauty and authenticity are welcome to come. There is no cost, no perfect perormance required, for He has paid the price. All He wants is your heart, so come freely to receive of His (Isaiah 55:1-3). Continue reading

Are You in What Seems Like a Desert Wilderness?

Deserts “appear to be lifeless, but surprisingly none are.”
(BBC’s Planet Earth)

Hungry, Thirsty, Weary, Frustrated?

For the most part, desert seasons in our walk with God can seem void of life, but are far from it. God uses these times to grow us, and where there is growth, there is life! Dry times bring forth even more life than if we never went through these times with God.

Change, Change, Change!

Because of the nature of wind and sand, deserts are constantly changing shape. Times when we experience vast amounts of change can also feel like wilderness seasons in our lives.

Remember This!

In the desert, one thing is constant and unchanging — the sun, even when it has set for the evening or when the sandy winds block it from view. Likewise, remember that no matter what is going on in your life, Jesus is always there, even if it feels like He is distant or even absent. Even when the winds of the desert blind us, God is still there.

Ultimate Source of Life

Keep yourself latched onto the Source of life – God Himself. He is your Living Water and Bread of Life, He will sustain you even when you think you can make it no further. Keep pressing on and drawing near to Him no matter what.

Hold onto God’s promises despite how you feel and the happenings around you: God will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8), and He uses all things for the good of those who love Him in order to make them more like Jesus (Romans 8:28-29). God is faithful and unchanging.  His love is unending and unconditional. He is always with you, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20).
