Bless the Wilderness

God is inviting those who will listen to begin blessing the wilderness of 2020. Here in the eleventh hour of this year, we can rise up in faith and declare that King Jesus has been drawing us into deeper intimacy with him through all of its challenges. In Song of Songs 8:5 there is a prophetic question, “Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?”

May God open our eyes to see the past year through his eyes. May he heal the eyes of our heart so that we will have wisdom and revelation. Our Bridegroom King has drawn us into the wilderness out of his deep desire for us. As we lean upon him with all of our hearts, we can trust that he is blessing us as his Bride and will provide more than we could think or imagine.

Hosea 2:14-23 contains God’s promise to his Bride (the people of God);“Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.“In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked.In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground.Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety.I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord.“In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord—“I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth;and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel.I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.’I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’”

There is a profound glory being poured out from heaven to those who will rise up in bold, courageous faith through Christ and bless the wilderness of 2020. Our Beloved, our bridegroom King Jesus has never let us down. May we have ears to hear and eyes to see how he has led us in 2020. He is good and his extravagant love is about to be displayed as never before upon his Bride. The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come, King Jesus.”

Christ is walking where you walk

I was reaching out to friends of mine this morning with a “stirring up” word. After I sent the message to them, I realized that it is an important word for all of us. We have come into a time of unprecedented harvest around the world. We have been sent as his children to do the harvest work. We HAVE TO get it done with Christ.

Wherever you place your feet, Christ in you is also placing his feet. Because he is in you and you are in him every place you walk is a place that the kingdom intends to show up. The Spirit has me contending for greatly improved vision for the eyes of your heart.

You and I can’t let the stubborn resistance of the rebellious world we are living in outwit us as children of God. It will submit to us in Christ if we remain present and enforce the kingdom (in love of course) wherever we go. The very places that resist us or that we don’t feel we belong are places that will be transformed by the kingdom soon! Jesus intends to do this with us as his family if we will keep showing up.

In Christ, you are a blessing!

Joining with My Young Adult Son in a Life Changing Experience

There are hearts, young and old, that are longing for something more, longing for something different. I want to be a part of building God’s Kingdom to reach and welcome these people into God’s reality for this world…

KBM - The Experience

The following is a letter from my son John asking for partnership and support as he joins “The Experience” this summer.  He is responding to God’s call on his life to see a kingdom laborer movement rise up in Canada.  Hope you are challenged and encouraged as you read…

“Over the last two years of my life, God has been opening my eyes to a calling that I believe He is putting on my heart for this world.  There are hearts, young and old, that are longing for something more, longing for something different.  I want to be a part of building God’s Kingdom to reach and welcome these people into God’s reality for this world.  Our mission as followers of Christ is to build God’s Kingdom with Christ.  We are Kingdom Builders.  That is our call. This is my call.

This coming summer, there is an opportunity for me to start on a one year journey with a ministry organization called “Kingdom Building Ministries”.  I will travel to Denver, Colorado and join in with 15 to 20 young adults across the United States, to take part in an intense discipleship program, called “The Experience”.  I will be working with a trainer, one-on-one, who will be discipling, encouraging, and praying with me.

Stage two involves going to Haiti and the Dominican Republic to take part in multi-cultural ministry and I will be continuing to grow with my discipleship trainer as well as the group of young adults.  Following this, we join in on a teen camp called “Deep Camp” where we become councilors and work with teens – starting our own discipleship relationships.

We then enter the “Wandering” stage.  During this time we will be traveling through the United States encountering different ministry opportunities that are meant to stretch us and open our eyes to the world that is in front of us and to see it through God’s eyes.

We then return to Denver where we take time and just reflect on everything we have just experienced and let ourselves dream with God.  What is it that He’s calling us into?  How are we to change this world?  How are we to be Kingdom Builders?  This is a dreaming stage.

Lastly, we prepare to head home.  The discipleship trainer and I set goals and plans for the next year at home.  My trainer will be checking on me weekly and working through everything I experienced during the summer.  We will be regularly praying together and seeing what God is doing through everything that happened during “The Experience.

I feel, more than I have anything else, that THIS is where God wants me this summer.  I believe that this is the next step in my journey. 

God has been opening my eyes and my heart to a new world, but to take this next step into my call, I believe “The Experience” needs to happen.  This is what I am asking you to pray about.

The Experience” does require a cost.  For me to take part in the entire program it will cost me $5,000.  This total needs to be in by May 21st and I am far from that $5,000 goal.  I will need at least $800 of that by May 6th to book my plane ticket to Haiti and Dominican Republic.  I’m asking for pledges- either a set amount or even a certain amount of financial support over a period of four months, May through August.  I am asking that you search God’s heart on this and if He is putting it on your heart to support me on this, please follow that call.  This is going to be a time of discovery and direction that I feel like I have been searching for a long time.

More importantly, I need prayer. 

I have been on a journey for the last two years of asking and pleading for God to show me His heart for this world and where He has me in His plan.  I believe I have found where He wants me, but I need to continue seeking His heart and discovering what it means for me to be a Kingdom Builder.

I cannot wait to share with you what God has done in my heart this summer when I return in August.  I believe God can do miracles and I believe God will provide.  Thank you for entering this journey with me and discovering what it means for all of us to be Kingdom Builders and show this world the love and hope God has called us to share.

If God is putting it on your heart to give financially or to be praying with me for this, please connect with me at or by cell at 1-506-608-8927.  Tax deductible receipts will be provided for all financial gifts.”
