I took this picture along Lake Superior on a hike. The Lord spoke strongly to me about resilience.

We are to PRESS IN. Persevere! Don’t give up.

Through the wind and the storms that tree has stood strong. It is time for the church to understand its roots… and to STAND.

Be resilient in prayer. Be resilient in faith. Stand. Do not give up. Trust the rootedness you have in Christ.

Why We Hate Normal

There is such a battle to be unique, to be quirky, to be a bit odd… set out in some way. We just don’t like normal.

But in the “normal” we may find the power of God working through us. Yet, we will find in that moment that it will then be about GOD, and not us.

Which may be why we don’t like normal after all.


Daring Mother Nature

I passed a place last night that really was trying to stick it to the weather. It was a drive-in restaurant. Not drive-thru… drive-in, like an old A&W. You had to get out of your car in the 5 below weather, go to a window and order your food.

It wasn’t as surprising that they were open as the fact there was a sandwich board out front announcing: ICE CREAM.

That is making the most out of a bad situation.

I almost stopped to get some!
