All of Creation is God’s place. There is nowhere that God doesn’t belong. Anywhere that there is life, there is God. Discovering prayer is discovering God. Discovering God is discovering prayer. Our prayer must expand to make room for us to live. Our lives must expand to make room for our prayer. Together we are a dwelling place for God. God is a dwelling place for all of us together. Prayer is you hearing God’s voice. Prayer is God hearing your voice. Prayer is where we are shaped. Prayer is us shaping things. There is no life outside of prayer. There is no prayer outside of life. Your life is meant to be a prayer. So God make our lives a prayer and make prayer our life. Through Christ Jesus Our Lord. – AMEN
All around us young men and women are waking up to their story in God. It is unrehearsed… it is unpredictable… it is beautiful in it’s vast range of wild colors and shapes and twisting plot lines. And it all pretty much comes down to… “God I can’t do this anymore”! Help me, please!!”
It has been said that “All religion is the human pursuit of God. But, the beauty of the gospel of Jesus is that God has been pursuing us for a relationship from the very beginning.”
God’s relentless pursuit of you will come in ways that are as beautifully unique as you are.
My son, Jeremy (featured in the video above) and I were talking recently and one of us said, “We talk all the time about how Jesus is the only way to have a deep friendship with the Father. But, maybe we need see the rest of the picture that the only way the Father could truly have a deep friendship with us was through Jesus.” Just look at the price He paid so that we could be united forever in His kingdom!
Whether you are making a mess of your life through empty wins or devastating losses… whatever you are running so hard to find… why don’t you just slow down and let Him catch you and wake you up to your story in Him?
