I Simply Wonder...

I'm sitting in the van traveling down interstate 30 in southern Arkansas - and I wonder...

How is it that I am worthy of such matchless love? How is it that He left His throne in glory? How is it that He left the glory of harmonious beautiful relationships to come to a world of brokenness and pain? How is it...

And now I know.... I am not worthy... no I have never been worthy - but the mending of a relationship, the winning of a heart, the healing of a battered soul imprisoned in loneliness - is always worthy of giving all.

And that is why He came -
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

-- Isaiah 61:1-3



Joy.

It's the greatest Christmas gift I've ever received...

    "Is always worthy of giving all"
    Thank you-
    To give all that others may be made one with Christ, To spend time, life, all, to pray for them without ceasing...
