A Winter Season

“The winter season is when roots and tubers grow.” I recently heard this from Father after spending time in the garden on a super frosty day. I needed to hear it. It has been one of the most revelatory things I have heard from him in the last 12 months! I think that in desert times we can often be bewildered by the process we are going through. I have heard a lot about how to position myself in desert times, and that there are two kinds of desert time – the one that the Holy Spirit leads you into – like Jesus into the wilderness at the beginning of his ministry, and the one we lead ourselves into – like the Israelites into their 40 year wander. This season didn’t feel like either of those de

Authority & Responsibility

People I come across who actually have the most authority are mostly people who don’t know it. Or if they do, they sure as heck don’t advertise that they know…! I am more and more aware, as Father has done more and more weeding in the patch of pride I have a tendency to cultivate (I heap manure on that one on a regular basis), how much currency we give notoriety in the west. Becoming successful often means becoming famous, well known, acknowledged by someone in the media spotlight, getting into the media spotlight, going on some kind of tour, making a million dollars, or at least enough to pay cash for a house and other stuff, you know the drill. There are other measures of success too for s

That innate sense we have that warns people away from or draws people to different areas. There are places where the veil between the temporal and the spiritual is so fine, that it is so nearly easy to cross over into heaven in these clay bodies of ours that it hurts. Problem is, and what most people don’t re

Time & Eternity; Straddling Reality

Forever and Ever. This is who we are. One foot in Eternity, one foot in Time. Actually, that’s about as inaccurate a description as you can get… However, it's also in some way paradoxically true. (One of the joys of living the way we do, there's a paradox around every corner, sometimes two paradox may assault you and treat you to a Morris dance!) We live in these clay jars, right. (2 Corinthians 4:7, Genesis 2:7.) But for those of us who have chosen the Narrow Way, we have the Life of the Resurrected Christ in us. ...as He is, so are we in this world. 1 John 4:17 (KJV) As such, we are seated with Christ in Heavenly places at the right hand of God the Father. (Ephesians 2:6, Colossians 3:1) C
