Luminouré – Part Two: The Word of Truth

I relegated the power of this truth to the breadth of my belief rather than recognizing my belief is only one small part of a whole reality that they present.
Now instead of thinking that the word of God is true because I believe it, I am beginning to humbly recognize that I believe in something that is true, not by my own power but by the grace of God which is given to reveal the person of Jesus so that I can begin to be restored to the promises of history and the present and growing reality of the kingdom. This light has already begun to burst forth in my heart and its rays are casting tender shadows whose height I cannot even begin to comprehend. There is much more here than I had previously imagined.

The Power of an Ordinary Life – Harvey Hook

In God’s sight, there are no “little people” and no “little places” – only individuals who offer their lives in consecrated moments of obedience to God. When they do this, he gives them the power to influence the flow of an entire generation. Harvey Hook – “The Power of an Ordinary Life” (inspired by Francis Schaeffer) This morning I was encouraged by this quote from a man who invested in my life when I was ‘just another college student.’ Harvey Hook saw the value in my ordinary life and his investment continues to this day in the lives of many...

Awake – A Poem 0

Awake – A Poem

Awake! O long enslumbered hour. Arise ye from your sacred bower. Long enchanted, yet, in silence kept. Preserved, your lightsome secret slept. Like fading daylight, none can tell, Where left the sun and darkness fell. Repeats the resonating evensong… While shadow grows him tall and long. The truth, it seemed, were there in sight, But scarcely could reveal. The fading light, Had cast its shade across the lonely hill. There, sleeping flowers rose and fell. The wind their spirits carried far and high, O’re mountain peak, and hill, and grassy lie. Co-mingled, raced into the wings of time, Addicted to...
