The 6 governing principles God gave man by which to live #1

Hi all, All over the world governments are warring between liberal and conservative, free-will based or government based rights, and things have gotten nasty and dirty, at least in the US. As individuals we too war over self-governance. We war within ourselves between no rules, let me do as I want, versus living within rules and regulations and obligations for our lives. The governance, or stewardship of our lives individually and therefore as federal governments do read more...

How People Miss God’s Perfect Will for Them #3

Hi all, The Lord's will is most often found in the mundane routines of life. Therefore missing His will also happens in the midst of the mundane things of life.   We must obey His will in the mundane before we can expect to be led in the big things in life. It includes loving your neighbor who is obnoxious and messy and so outside of your comfort zone you are repulsed when the Lord tugs at your read more...

How People Miss Gods Perfect Will for Them #2

Hi all, Life is a series of small decisions, and in the Lord those decisions involve either making us into the image of our Lord, or making the Lord into our image. Each decision is either a decision for growth and change, or remaining in the familiar and comfortable.   This series is about how people miss the Lord's perfect will, and I'm starting with the call to discipleship - not just a believer, but a disciple.   Jesus is read more...

February 2017 Newsletter

Hi all, I’ve got some quick updates, some things to look for prophetically, and general news.   On a personal level: Chris’ behavior seems to be leveling out, and he is learning not to throw his toy cars at the aides in the group home and so forth, lol though a serious issue among others – Thank you for your prayers as anyone who has dealt with caring for the infirmed in your home or if they are read more...

How People Miss God’s Perfect Will for Them #1

Hi all, In 1985 I was between churches - that sounds so elegant doesn't it? Between churches? That means the new guys came into power and I was fired from my position of Campus Minister of a particular ministry at the University of Colorado in Boulder, thinking they could do it better now that I had spent nearly 2 years bringing that ministry to balance out of a very destructive 'shepherding movement' direction that almost killed read more...

Relationship Between Heaven and Earth #4

Hi all, I've been talking about how heaven looks at earth, and began last week sharing 2 of the 3 authority structures He established and to what degree if any He involves Himself with. The first 2 were Creation and Families. I will start with final comments about families as God's main authority structure in the earth, asking:   Where is God when children become victims? Starting with creation which is in a fallen state, and flowing to families read more...

Relationship Between Heaven and Earth #3

Hi all, I've been sharing heaven's perspective these last 2 weeks, first about being 1 family no matter if that family is in heaven or still on earth, then how the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, present both in heaven and earth, and faithfully communicating what the Father and Lord have for us, and us to them. Today:   If God is in charge then why does He allow such horrible things to happen?  What does the read more...

Relationship Between Heaven & Earth #2

Hi all, I'm sharing about the relationship between heaven and earth that you may be encouraged.   I love hearing the Father's perspective and the Lord's, because the reality of renewing our minds is actually the process in which we start to think like Him and living by His perspective on things. That means when we learn of heaven's point of view we adjust our thinking accordingly, so that when something catches us by surprise here on earth read more...

January 2017 Newsletter

  Hi all, Barb and I have had some tests and doctors visits but all seems more or less well thus far. Much to my surprise, the cardiologist is more concerned about my blood pressure than the AFib. With no outward symptoms with the AFib and no lack of energy, his advice was lose more weight to get the blood pressure down, and he will see me in 3 months. If I don’t reach my target weight read more...
