December 11, 2017 adoration


“Simon Peter said, “You’re the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:16 MSG

Beloved –

Notice Christmas.

My soul needs this

My spirit needs this.

I need this.

Because, I want to experience and celebrate the fullness of God’s Word. I want to stare in wonder and worship at my King, lying in a back-shed, on a bed of fresh hay – His precious momma beside Him. I want to join my song with the song of the angels—the angels that surrounded Him, that now reside in the space that hovers ever so closely over you and me, songs that still echo down the ages from those shepherds’ fields: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

That “goodwill toward men” changed my life, you see. He changed my life.

So I have decided to enter in tighter – to thank Him. I have decided to ponder the wonder and miracle of Christmas. I have decided to give honor where honor is due—to Christ the Lord, born an ordinary man-birth beneath His privilege as King of the World.

Yet, Holy. Holy. Holy.

Come. Let us adore Him.

Let us share Him in our hours today; find the others who need Him as desperately as we do. Guide them to His presence. Begin with a heart that simply adores.

Wake up.

“But ask the animals what they think—let them teach you; let the birds tell you what’s going on. Put your ear to the earth—learn the basics. Listen—the fish in the ocean will tell you their stories. Isn’t it clear that they all know and agree that GOD is sovereign, that he holds all things in his hand— Every living soul, yes, every breathing creature? Isn’t this all just common sense, as common as the sense of taste? Do you think the elderly have a corner on wisdom, that you have to grow old before you understand life?”

Job 12:7-12 MSG

Good morning, God’s Child-

Watch how the trees bend, how the leaves dance, how open and endless the sky is and how strong and vocal the wind can be. I love learning from nature – from all of her rhythms, her patterns, her magic, and her phases. God speaks there when we learn to listen.

Wake up.

Hear Him.


November 17, 2017 magnificence


“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-23‬ ‭NASB‬‬


Our God is a God who is adamant to bless us. He is compassionate … chases us down to deliver a part of His own portion inside. But, for the blessing to be received, He calls us to come before Him on our knees. When we bow, we enter in to the throne room of The Almighty … if we only understood that the entire universe operates according to our proximity to the throne of the Most High … and entering-in-level-proximity happens when knees bend. There we gain full access to His Grace. Bending places us there in the very heart of the Almighty. When it all comes down, blessing and peace have a direct connection to the authority of God in our lives. How much of yourself are you willing to hand over to Him? Surrender. He has reserved for you and me the higher things – much deeper things … not the mundane and simple (although The Creator has authority there, too) but, the deeper knowing of the very heart of our Savior as He pours Himself into us … He pours compassion directly from His heart into yours.

So often the enemy tricks us into believing we are not worthy. That’s a lie. The truth is that from our knees, when we offer up whatever we can to our Maker –

our time,

the energy that is left,

our fear,

then He brings the blessing of peace out of chaos. With noise and beeps and emotions and hurt, and wild all-around, when we go to our knees, The Most High places a quiet … a calm … and He gives understanding that allows us to hear His magnificence all around.

And, His magnificence nourishes us.

Wake up.


Hear His Magnificence.

“When I walk into the thick of trouble, keep me alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike my foes, with Your other hand save me. Finish what you started in me, GOD. Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.” Psalm ‭138:7-8‬ ‭MSG‬

Good morning, Beloved. 

We forget that we live on a bubble. 

That every minute … 

every minute … 

every minute is a gift.

There is something about loss that creates a gaping wound … a wound that challenges us to do better for each other … to nod and allow questions to come that are not part of our usual hours … and, to greet one another in life-affirming ways. 

It’s in the shadows of life, just beyond the curtain – on the edge of the stage, watching, helplessly, hopefully – it is there when there is nothing left to do that surrender happens … and the Source of Life takes over. God Almighty responds to empty. He streams Himself in like a very gentle white light through one heart, and straight into another. Healing energy. 

The trauma must stay fluid, and moving through as only God can do. The enemy wants it stuck so we live in defeat … but, the Holy Spirit moves through touch and hugs and songs and memories. 


All around. 

He moves through others when they use words like care, gentle, love, healing, grace, deeply held, I’m here, hope, and peace, and more peace. 
Wounded hearts grieve with certain raw tenderness when loss happens. It is every kind of right to sob, to feel hot tears. Feel all the impact and power of loss that reminds us how deep love drives. By feeling the sickness and swirling of everything wrong, God clears us to see Him and to burn brighter with the tightness of His love and with life. This is the power of His Light in you and me. His Light wins over dark. People begin to heal when the force of pain is allowed to shudder you to the core. We meet that pain together with our faith, and our love for our Savior. Christ’s capacity to transform far exceeds ours to move from pain into healing. 
So we wait.

“Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him … Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance, for no godless person would dare come before him!”

‭‭Job‬ ‭13:15-16‬ ‭NIV‬‬
Wake up. 

Stream His Light. 



September 25, 2017 time is coming 


Good morning, ChosenOne,

Very few people had the resume David had:

Some knew him as a shepherd.










David started very small. In the shadows, almost forgotten. 

He had very high highs. And, very low lows.

His anchor was: ‘the Lord was with him”.

No matter what. 

God will just be on whomever He chooses. And, whenever He decides to raise you up, nobody can keep you down. 

Like you and me, David just got up on ordinary mornings. He set out, just like we do – no angelic visitations, lightening did not flash, thunder did not roll. The sun just rose ordinary like it always does. At the first glimmer of daylight, David jumped up out of bed on a mission to care for the sheep. As the morning moved, he found himself consumed with his daily duties such as strengthening those who were week, and healing those that were wounded, and, binding up those who were broken, and seeking out that one lone sheep that had wandered away. In the middle of his ordinary – God had a very specific plan for His child. 

Then, there was a day, that a messenger showed up in the sheep field, and said, “David, Samuel’s at your dad’s place, and he wont rest until he sees you.” 

“Who, me?”

And, when David went to Samuel, the oil flowed, David was the anointed and then he went right back to the ordinary mornings of the sheep field. 

Why? Because, just like you, God chose Him. God chose the growth plan and the time. And, it wasn’t time yet. 

Stay the course, DearOne. God’s ways are right. Your opportunity is coming. 

“And then GOD answered: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.” Habakkuk‬ ‭2:2-3‬ ‭MSG‬‬
Wake up. 

Your time is coming.

September 20, 2017 zero


Good morning, God’s Child. 

Have you ever wondered how the mere presence of the Holy Spirit in us doesn’t shatter our frame? He is bigger than our thoughts can imagine. And, He is ours for the taking. Mmm. 

I struggle at times with feelings of worthlessness. Which is ironic to me, knowing full-well who I am in Christ. And, who He is. Yet, man-made markers and rewards put a price on our heads – 

‘very good, you are worth this much’, 

‘your value means this __ to us, but, you, there, well, let’s see … you’re worth zero.’ 

And, from those man-made criteria we begin to believe we are a zero. Because, energy follows thought. 

When that happens, here is where to take that energy … when evidence comes your way, especially from those in authority over you, that they think you are sub-par, that you are a zero, take it straight to your Creator. (gosh, I’m crying my eyes out this morn). 

In His goodness, a positive seed is sown: not a lollipop-pops and roses positivity, but a deep positivity that alleviates suffering – the kind of compassion that is salve for our health because it is a form of kindness … and His being and His Word settles back in on us in the form of FAITH, “Ang, you’ll be okay, no matter what happens. I have a greater place for you.”

And, you know from this place you get clear on the situation, you know it’s time to take action. This is the place He walks with you into solution-thinking. When you choose to walk with Him, you move – not just plain old ordinary move, but the Holy-shift, “I should’ve thought just a little bit bigger” kind of move. 

The Ultimate Authority has your back, Beloved. Walk right there. 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Wake up. 

Grab His hand. 

Be led to solutions. 

Hang on for the ride.

September 15, 2017 where?


Good morning, DearOne. 

Over the summer, something shifted in me. I asked for it. “God, where are You in me? Come back to life here in me so I know You deeper that ever.” 

He responds when we ask. 

He is responding right now – moving on your behalf on the things you have requested for your good. 

God has anointed us with the Holy Spirit for a reason: so that impossible situations will bow the knee to Jesus. All too often, we totally underestimate what God wants to do for us. 

Jesus gave us authority over demons, sickness, disease and darkness so we could bring His reality to earth right now. And you know what? I’ve only been at this really big-bizarre-radical praying for a little over a month, but I’m already seeing radical answers. (Who would’ve thought my son would receive a call like that? or, one of girls would be daily performing on that level? God, thank You-keep with me in pouring crazy-unfathomable love and Your stamina into them. Give them Your victory through Your authority there). 

I claimed the promise from Psalm 91:15, and God has been honoring me. It feels weird and strange and undeserved, but God said He wanted to do it, and He is…

…and I like it. (Thank You, Father.)

I’ve claimed His promise to “answer me and show me great and mighty things that I don’t know.” Jeremiah 33:3 – and boy, has He ever. Things I could never have imagined to pray for have been popping out of the woodwork. (Thank You, Father – that’s all You!)

So. what kind of radical have you been sitting on? What are you waiting for God Almighty to do in your life? Have you asked? Have you asked out loud, with authority, and told satan that he’s been bounced out of your situation? That he is the enemy and has no jurisdiction here?

What are you believing God for? What do you need to start praying radical prayers about? Could it be:

* Your finances?

* Your job?

* Opportunity or promotion?

* Favor with specific people?

* Honor?

* Vindication from false accusations?

* Healing of relationships?

* Reversal of an unjust situation?  

Ask your Maker to arrive in all the places that are not well in your life – be right there where the wounded place is – where it is ugly and uncomfortable. 

Be hurt. 

And, furious. 

And, weak. 

Sit in the loss and the trial that has worn you down. 

Know that there is some serious training going on in you. The flames that are scarring you, are the flames that the Holy Spirit is using to purify and lift you out – because you had the guts to whisper out loud to ask Him to show up. You’re peering under the smoke and allowing yourself to see what He’s really moving in your behalf. 

Yes, He is moving. 

He is really moving on your behalf. 
Wake up. 

Ask for it. 

Trust His ways.

September 14, 2017 priest


Good mornin’, Child of Light!

With whom did you share a Christ moment yesterday? At what point did you bring Him into the circles of your conversations? When His name is mentioned, have you noticed how 

the mood, 

and the energy, 

and the thought life, 

and the level of hope suddenly changes? 

That place right there, where you spoke His name became power. Became powerful. You did that by choosing to speak life … when you speak His name, you speak Life. You, DearOne are chosen. You are His priesthood. 

“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Now that you know who you are – speak Him into every talk. Others need Him in every thread of our minutes as much as you and I do. 

You are the light upon the darkness. 

You are the city on a hill. 

As His, you are qualified and competent to speak up and speak of the riches of being a child of the Most High. 

And, here is what happens, when others catch a wave of the Holy from you, they want more of Him. When your voice says His name, you’ve called Him into your talk, and, He moves His work and His ways from there. There is plenty of Him to overflow from each of us. And, the Holy becomes like wildfire … from your mention of His name, a profound all-moving wave begins. 

It starts with you and me accepting Who He is, and who we are in Him. You and I must think just a little bit bigger. There is no gossamer veil between the “daily you” and who He says you are. 


His priest. 

Royal priesthood. 

He’s talking to you, about you. 

You are important. 

With full rights. 

More than adequate. 




You are a blessing. 
Wake up. 

Speak His name to everyone.

Good morning, DeaeOne,

You know, the daily practice of quiet time with our Creator is like little league drills or practicing the piano or casting a fishing pole. 

It requires discipline. 

Sometimes, it is tedious work. 

It is necessary. 

The Holy Spirit indwelling your life and my life is necessary. 

It is here, in practice, you become more skilled at the art form of opening yourself up to receive His relentless. relentless. relentless mercy. 

You don’t practice to be a great little league drill specialist or a great piano practicer, you practice to become a skilled athlete or a musician … skilled at the art form itself. 

Likewise, it is in the regular practice of showing up 

in praise, 

in worship, 

in prayer,

that the King of the world welcomes His child in. 

Here, He slathers us with His grace. 

Here, He mesmerizes us with His Light. 

Here, He increases our capacity to trust Him by receiving His radiance in our human-skin-turmoil, and transmitting His glory into a daily world that is desperate to receive Him. 

Like everything else, it’s all about the practice of showing up. 

“So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” James‬ ‭4:7-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬
Wake up. 

Show up. Get serious.

“You have said, “Seek My face.” My heart says to You, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” Psalms‬ ‭27:8‬ ‭ESV‬
God, You are God. 

Let us just sit on that a moment. We adore You – that we should be the apple of Your eye blows my mind. You are for us. You are for our children – they belong to You. Lord, we ask that You would halt the plans of the enemy over these we love as we bring them before You right now.  We pray that his schemes be demolished and that Your plans for good, for a future and hope, would prevail. Would You open blind eyes that they might see Your Truth? See Your hand moving for them?

Would You rescue those walking in darkness, and heal the deep wounds of those who’ve been hurt? 

We pray for the miraculous intervention of Your Spirit to draw them to Yourself, to work strong on behalf of our loved ones who are wandering. 

For You came with good news, 

And, promise … to heal the brokenhearted, 

to proclaim freedom for captives 

and, release for the prisoners. 

Though we deserved penalty for our wrong, You stood in our place and took the blows on our behalf.  You choose to die, so that we can live. Forever and free.

Lord, forgive our unbelief.  Forgive the times we’ve doubted that You could ever change a heart.  Forgive our 


our weariness, 

or forgetfulness to “pray continually.” 

Thank You that You never give up on us. Remind us of how You’ve changed our own hearts. (Oh, yes Thank You!) How Your miracle of life and hope has sprung up deep within our souls. 

We love You, Lord, 

we need You, 

and we thank You that You hear our prayers and are at work even now. 




Thank You for the gift of our Savior, God with us. Thank You for Your goodness and love. 

In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

Wake up.
