The Narrow Path

A People Prepared

It says about John the Baptist that he “went on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”(Luke 1:17).  He came to “prepare the way for the
It seems that we in the Church are at a fork in the road, a point where each individual member of the Body has a choice to make. The choice is this: Will we choose the Word or the world? How vast the difference a little letter makes in the meaning of two words. We could easily miss this signpost if we are not awake; if we are drowsy, dull and

The Stars

 I stepped out one wintery night and looked up to the sky which was crisp and clear. I gasped out loud at the brightness of the stars and wondered why they were so vivid this particular night, even in the city? But it hit me that the stars are always like this and its just my surroundings that hide them. I went on with my walk, craning my

To Flail or Float?

~ 5 minute read

What happens when adversity comes at you or God calls you to a deeper place, "out onto the waters" so to speak? What happens when suddenly you find yourself face to face with that step of faith into an unknown circumstance whether its through a trial or some other seemingly impossible avenue? You're at the shore and you're meant to step in and

My story, my song

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story...

He has done this for me: He has never forsaken me. 

And he never will. 

You are Always with Me

The time I realized I was the 'older brother'...

There’s a pride in me that balks at a gift like God’s grace, a gift that completes a work that I didn’t work for, or deserve. It’s a pride which sulks because Grace strips it of the win, strips it from being able to say “look at my strength, my ability , look what I did”. And ultimately, this pride sulks because it can’t maintain the lie that I can be God.

Watch and Pray

Preparing for God's Reality

“Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming” 1 Peter 1:13

Did you know that there are two more times in Paul’s short letter that he warns his readers to be alert and sober minded? The second time, so that we can pray because the end of all things is near. The third time so that the enemy doesn’t catch us off guard when we are in the midst of affliction and temptations(which will surely heighten as His return gets even closer)

Faith in action. Seeking Jesus.

I was looking through my journal kept of the last year and it is really neat to see how the year has unfolded and how many prayers have been answered. God is real! And I've never been more sure about that than over the last couple years as I've seen him work in my life. About a year ago I had written down a dream with the message being 'prepare

Love and Obedience (Part 2)

"Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it
