justice isn’t concern…love & truth expressed, is.
So grateful for what God has done & is doing in my life. It’s truly remarkable. I am just as grateful for God exposing me to the countless people who are oppressed, suppressed and so unjustly hated or ignored. My heart beats for them. Jesus loves every one of those children just as He loves me.
God is raising up reformers who love ALL people with the limitless, all seeing, all knowing, passionate, fiery, tender love of Jesus. This is how the Kingdom will come. This is how God loves. This is justice. Love.
Reminder: If any person sees another as less than themselves (whether opposite sex, other skin color, richer or poorer…even murderers and rapists) they deny Jesus. You can’t know Jesus and consider someone “less than”
Beautiful being in the bosom of God. There’s nothing like His closeness. In the drawing closer, God has gotten bigger & bigger…self-help/pride can’t stand where God’s nearness resides. It’s the simplest life.
So, my moment at Worship Rooms tonight (Tuesday, 25th) may just be the greatest experience of my life outside of my face to face encounters with Jesus. As I was up on stage with the team, I was drawn to this beautiful curly-headed brown boy. He’s been in worship rooms with his family before but this time I couldn’t help but stare at him. I wanted to hug him, so with my sister Krystal’s encouragement I hopped off stage and moved towards this boy in the back of the room…as I was about 20 ft away from him he hopped from his chair with the brightest face and waved/said hello. He began introducing himself as I reached him…Joshua is his name…I grabbed his face and then his shoulders and told him that he had eyes of hope & love. We then discovered thst we were both born in thr same city in South Florida! I’ve never felt more compassion. My eyes were full of water and then an old beautiful man with piercing blue eyes stood up beside him and said, “Well, I’m Grandpa” and he thanked me for the music we create and for coming back to say hello. I grabbed his face, then the Grandmother grabbed me with teary eyes and told me she was honored to meet me and we both stared at each other. Then the boy’s mom pulled me into a hug and told me that Joshua is growing his hair out just like mine and told me that he’s inspired by me. I was about to fall over I was so overwhelmed. I told Joshua that I’d have him join me on stage and walked away. As I was making my way back to stage I began crying. Weeping. I just leaned on a wall and cried. Tried to get onto stage and couldn’t get up the stairs! I was heaving!!! Never cried that hard in my life!!! I’m crying now in bed! It was the compassion of God. Krystal held me on the ground and then grabbed Joshua and he sat with me on stage and journaled. He drew out a picture of my prophetic song “may the tears that fall water the seeds that will grow into trees” and then he began writing songs in his journal and I sang them the rest of the night.
God opened me up to what He’s brought me into with influence & the opportunity to love extravagantly…I now realize on another level.
Here I am
I’ve been radically encouraged as of recent to be more intentional about posting on my blog. God has used beautiful people to enlighten me by sharing how He’s supernaturally connected a number of us through my blog.
I’m in Redding completing my 2nd year at Bethel’s School of Supernatural Ministry. It’s been the most profound and simple, tender and powerful, quiet and exhilarating experience of my short full journey. God has manifested so many of His facets in & about me. I’ve grown to know Him as so many different heads in my life, but first as Father. God has revealed to me -through my encounter with my Father here on earth- what He desires for every one of His children and that is to know Him first as Father. Growing up my Dad was a mega influencer in my community and a trusted and celebrated leader to thousands of people but growing up I always knew Him simply as Dad. As I matured I realized the great man that he was to the world but I ALWAYS knew what a great man he was to my family & I. God wants us to first know and celebrate Him as the beautiful Papa that He is and then Creator of all, King of Kings, Righteous Judge and the list goes on. This reality has simplified my life to love. LOVE. My life is loving God & loving people. In a culture like Bethel’s, with a position of influence, I’m bound to complicate everything but God has drawn me back to love & love alone. I only live from love; fiery, compassionate, extreme love…from here my life blossoms with the fruits of God’s closeness. I live with a bountiful overflow of the fruits of His Spirit. He’s told me to love and promised that He’d figure out the details. It’s been the greatest promise fulfilled. God has brought me into the desires of His heart in such a magnificent way. I’m blown away each day at how much He wants to share with me and all of His beloveds. I’m honored to be brought close by the Master craftsman. I’m honored to simply BE. That’s what He’s brought me into…being with Him.
He’s asked me to look at Him, just a little longer than I usually do, and He’s left marvelous imprints every time. It’s just like looking at the sun or a light and still seeing the light when you look away; it’s the same with Jesus. I get to look at Him as much as I please and from there wherever I look I still see His glory. This is my life. It’s beautiful. It’s simple. It’s God. It’s yours! Take it! Until next time!!!
