    YES! amen.

    Like Joseph, God will use personalities that are “dreamers” to accomplish His will BUT only after those dreams of exaltation have been surrendered to Him and the dreamer has been stripped of all *self* confidence, self focus… and their own timetable & methods…. only then, will He be able to fully mold & use them as His clay.

  • I trust this has nothing to do with koolaid: TODAY & EVERY DAY Jesus and I are sharing this tent known as Terry Jarbo. WOW what a privildge and responsibility thus the need for GRACE & MERCY.

    Following on yesterday’s thought – this is a really good word for me today. I’m not in any danger of running out and joining a radical sectarian commune but as I find myself in middle age, at a crossroads in my career, and being led through an extended time of wilderness, it is really easy for me to jump out and pursue something foolish with the best of intentions. My spiritual growth throughout the last 5+ years has been remarkable and the relationship I now enjoy with Christ is what sustains me daily. Yet I am also a restless achiever who has a hard time saying no. Thank you Father, for speaking through Frank!! I know that God’s will for me isn’t in what I am to DO next, it’s in who I am to BE. And it’s in who I AM, that what He has laid out for me will be done!!
