speak-less: Let's make God louder. →
speak-less: Real life moment: Ever talking to an elderly person on the phone and run into some communication issues? The clear solution is to talk louder. Right? Wrong. The more frustrated you get, the louder you yell, distorting your voice even more on the phone. I feel some churches, organizations,…
speak-less: worship at a distance →
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord… You are to worship at a distance, but Moses alone is to approach the Lord; the others must not come near. And the people may not come up with him.” (Exodus 24:1-2) When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it,
speak-less: living sacrifice →
speak-less: God has spoken this to me explicitly for two weeks now. *cue interruption* “She only has a short time on this earth. Help her use it wisely.” My dad just prayed with me and said these words. Confirmation of what I am writing now. It has become quite the cliche- we are not guaranteed tomorrow….
speak-less: Why? How? When? →
speak-less: My heart is consumed with His call. What is purpose? What is “destiny”? I can give you a textbook definition, but what is purpose to me. What is my destiny? Why? How? When? Sometimes (a lot more than I would like to admit), I can’t “feel” God. I can’t hear God. I can’t see Him. I can’t find…
I haven’t posted on here for a while now, for what reason I don’t know. But I wanted to share this with anyone that reads what I write, so here it goes. Background: I went on a retreat and while praying for safe travels God laid upon my heart the term “Violent Worshipers” and I had NO idea what He meant. So I was just thinking, “Well that’s cool.” So...
speak-less: bored with God. →
speak-less: The process of seeking is just as fun as the process of indulging, true? Without even meaning to ‘strike gold,” this thought somehow found its way onto an email I was typing to a friend. Why do we enjoy scavenger hunts, hide-and-seek, or even detective shows? Why do little kids question all…
speak-less: admitting His goodness →
speak-less: Time for a little break from all the devotional type blogs- I gotta testify. I hate “admitting” my calling. Why? Honesty time: I don’t always believe God will be faithful to fulfill His vision. I’m afraid it won’t happen. I say with confidence- I know I am called to lead worship (and that is not…
speak-less: bedroom worship →
speak-less: “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24) A friend and I were discussing this verse… This is a brilliant revelation from one of my great friends. True worship. He...
I will not leave you as orphans: every time a see... →
chelseabarton: every time a see an anti-obama or some other post openly bashing obama on facebook from someone who calls himself a Christ follower, all i can think is how that’s the exact opposite of what we are to be doing. i’ll give these two verses and be done with the subject: Let every soul be subject to…
Jesus didn’t die halfway for you, why do you get to live halfway for him?– Damon Thompson (via rebekahlovesjesus)
kassie armstrong: Reflectioning →
speak-less: ” What are our hearts truly set on? What moves us? Ministry… or intimacy? “ kassiearmstrong: I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the role of the believer. And I’ve noticed that so many times we tend to take our calling and our role in the Kingdom so seriously that we begin to place our function in the body above our foundation in the Father. We’ve got it all backwards.
speak-less: To the generation who never got to... →
speak-less: To all my brothers and sisters that I never got to see; To all the little ones who never got to be.. To all the mothers who regret what they’ve done; To all the peoples of the earth, I declare: Victory has been won. To all the scoffers who don’t see the light; To all the broken fathers, lost…
speak-less: you lie there sleeping →
speak-less: Yes you lie there You lie there sleeping I pray you are in peace Yes you lie there But only for a moment I pray you rest in peace I’m sorry for what they’ve done to you Could it be my fault? Yes you lie here I see you locked in a vault The chains that bind you read “choice, life, and rights” …
Leslie Jeannine.: This so-called God thing... →
speak-less: lesliejeannine: I know that probably 10 people read these post of mine, but because it’s going to go out in public, I figured I’d give it a shot. And I know it has been a while. I had a post that I had written, but it was totally erased because I just had this epiphany. So please hear me out. :) I was reading… To be like Him..
Freedom is being so in love with Christ that you do exactly what you want to do...– John Piper (via speak-less)
speak-less: bio lesson: pioneer species →
speak-less: Pioneer species: the first organisms that live in a previously uninhabited area. Typical examples of pioneer species are lichens and some mosses, which can break down solid rock into smaller pieces. And here I am, asking God to make me lichen. Lord, release your pioneer spirit upon my life. …
speak-less: re-created. →
speak-less: “When we become Christians, God doesn’t give us amnesia, remove struggles, or recognize our achievements. However, he gives us a new past, present, and future ‘in Christ’ (2 Corinthians 5:17).” - Pastor Phil Smidt, Mars Hill Church I love the term “new creation.” God does not just fix us…
The Last Call
speak-less: And now, once more, at the very end of the age, God calls. The last call, the midnight cry, is now upon us, sounding clearly in our ears. God will give this one more chance, the last. A final call, a worldwide revival. Then judgment upon the whole world. Some tremendous event is about to transpire. -Frank Bartleman-
You can’t do anything about God’s timing, and God can’t do anything about your...– Casey Doss (via speak-less)
speak-less: And then I died. →
speak-less: And then I died. All alone I sat before the Throne. In darkness I slept. A hidden light kept. I thought I knew where I was going; I thought I knew the whole story. But then I died. - And when death found me, When the grave overtook my heart, My self-righteousness fell apart.
speak-less: you can't. it won't. →
speak-less: If I hear these words one more time… “You can’t live a holy life. You can’t see God. You won’t see the end to abortion. Prayer will never be allowed in schools again. America is too far gone. Heaven will not come to earth, stop acting like it.” In the most modest language I can muster- bull.
Leslie Jeannine.: Nazirite Cry →
lesliejeannine: I want to be an extravagant lover. An offering, a sacrifice for you. I find in you, passion and pleasure, Until I am consumed with a spirit of burning. A laid down lover. That’s what I want to be. A lovesick warrior. You’re all I want to see, So I give my all to Thee. Deep inside…
speak-less: commission. calling. command. →
speak-less: The great commission is for every man. It’s not a calling. It’s a command. I have heard this twice in one day form two completely different sources. I believe the origin of this quote is from David Platt’s Radical. I have found myself in a position of seeking God’s will for my life. And God,…
Birth by Influence
God has really been hitting me hard lately with two words: Birthing and Influence. Up until just recently, I never connected the two, because I didn’t fully understand the meaning of them alone. (I still don’t ENTIRELY understand, but this is what I have so far. Kinda, like an abridged version, because the other would be WAY too long.) I was at the Ramp a couple weeks ago and God very...
I’ve been thinking a lot about leading/entering into worship for the past couple months, and certain things have not left my mind concerning the matter. This is probably me just ranting, but worship is one of the most important things in a true Christian walk. The Bible tells us to worship/sing more than any other command; it’s right in front of prayer. This isn’t supposed to be a little...
