Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.
When you are in love, you learn to love the things that you once never cared about because the person you love cares about them. This is why Christ told us that the greatest commandment was to love the Lord your God; when we love God we love others, we love the orphans and the widows. We love the world even when it hates us, we desire to see people healed and love restored.
You want to change the world? Then you need to start loving God in such a way that your entire world changes. That is the beauty of transformational love; it doesn’t just affect you, it affects all those around you.
fans been blowing on my face for the past… 9 hours. it’s so stankin hot&humid. wishing for fall asap.
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
When you find somebody good, keep them! Keep them in your life.

a drummer friend of mine is going to thailand next week performing an opening act for the planetshakers. & he was criticized of his lack of style this past week, saying that he dressed too low-key.
i was appointed to change his style, and so i am on a mission to find good and cheap clothes to dress him up for three concerts.
kinda excited to play dress up on a guy!
i’m ready for the challenge.
proximity is key.
