Arranging for the Life


The Glory of God is man fully alive.


Several years ago, a couple of close friends and I traveled to Florida to conduct a weekend orientation for a friend’s company. Eight men, all very “successful” regional sales reps from around the country, assembled to talk about the past quarter and set goals for the coming year.

Essence of Desire

Lord, you know all my desires and deepest longings. My tears are liquid words and you can read them all.

Psalm 38:9

You satisfy my every desire with good things. You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again like a flying eagle in the sky!

Psalm 103:5

I wanted a motorcycle for the longest time.


Week 7: "The Daily Prayer" Devotional

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

Luke 9:23

"I surrender."

It is a declaration of relinquish, giving up, denying one position and taking up another.

I heard an illustration a long time ago about the posture of raising your hands to the sky. It meant ...

Here I am.

I give up.

Honoring Story

But the crowds soon found out about it and took off after him. When they caught up with Jesus, he graciously welcomed them all, taught them more about God’s kingdom realm, and healed all who were sick.

            Luke 9:11 (TPT)

I was at a conference this past weekend and one of the speakers, author and counselor Dan Allender, said:

The True Gospel


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he has anointed me to be hope for the poor, freedom for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners. "You are set free!" I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the time of God’s great acceptance has begun.
