It's about to get real up in here.

We have a God who is alive whether you believe it or not.  He is waiting to hear from you. 

I am learning from the book of Jonah, that God shakes us up to see what is really inside of us.  He can shake our lives violently, to purge what is wrong and restore what is right.

What is it all about, Lord?  Why in the heck am I here and what am I supposed to do with this mess?  I know that life is about people.  It is about healing and restoration.  It is about learning how to choose right, which is always difficult, in order to really dig our hands into joy. 

Lord, whatever the mess is, whatever the hurt is in our hearts right in this moment, heal us.  Give us new eyes to see this life, and a hope that you are here with us.  Please show us our next move.  Define our path so clearly and lead us to a light that never goes out.  If we are here to restore, help us restore.  If we are the ones in need of change, change us.  Please Lord, we need you. 

"Therefore, the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.  For the Lord is a God of Justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.  O people in Zion, you will weep no longer.  he will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you" Isa. 30:18-19.


  1. God's glory is His kindness. We learn that first, from Exodus 33. The closer you get to the Lord, the more powerful His kindness becomes. Its a powerful magnetism. It completely reveals the difference between Him and His Kingdom - and us - and this world. That's why He is so persistent: "seek Me". Its worth it - in words and ways that we cannot communicate. "And the things of earth, will grow strangely dim . . ."
