God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
Thursday, June 29, 2006
“Never choose to be a worker; but when once God has put His call on you, woe be to you if you turn to the right hand or the left. We are not here to work for God because we have chosen to do so, but because God has apprehended us.” Oswald Chambers
Apprehended: to seize 1. to arrest, to seize 2 to become aware of: perceive 3. to grasp with understanding: recognize the meaning of.
He seized, I became aware, He grasped – I hold on – HE HOLDS ME.
I am called not just to bear testimony, but to preach the gospel.
You are called not just to bear testimony, but to preach the gospel.
We are called not just to bear testimony, but to preach the gospel.
Sinners, saved by GRACE.
I cannot say that I fully grasp with understanding my God. I do not completely recognize the meaning of HIM who made, came, redeemed, restored, related. I cannot.
I hold on to the truths that He has walked me through.
I pick up the rocks of remembrance and put them in my pocket – they remind me of His wonder, His provision, His love.
I discover new truths as we travel this road together; intimate truths, blessed truths, frightening truths.
I share Him with any and everyone that opens the door.
But, I can only share the Him that I know.
The Word shares all of Him to them.
Therefore, I point to the Bible and ask them to open it, read it, meditate on it.
He will apprehend them where they are. He is calling His sheep.
Are we listening?
