Kingdom Builders

Functions. What does the Holy Spirit do? If we are to recognize the Holy Spirit working in the church, we must understand what He does. Some things which we can attribute to the Holy Spirit are the following: Those are only a few we listed at The River Friday night. I’m sure you will have … More Kingdom Builders


The live stream from The River confirmed what I have been hearing countless times this week: expect resistance. I have been feeling huge resistance and confrontation as I dig deeper into the wells to which I have been called. Throughout the Word, wells are metaphors for the depths of the Spirit — searching for the … More Resistance

Oh, come home.

The Prodigal Son is a parable we know and have heard countless times. Last night, the lesson from The River helped bring it to my attention in a new light. There was a specific aspect of the story I had never seen: the son was still a son and was not made a servant. Breakdown … More Oh, come home.

Persevere. Do not lose hope.

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 When we pray for strength, Christ gives us chances to lean on Him and grow our faith.

Last night, I was out of town, so I watched the live stream for The River. I’m glad I did. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 Quench not the Spirit…  Quench: to be suppressed or extinguished. The Greek word … More Dwell…

We are the vessel of the Holy Spirit and He is the Living Water welling up inside those who believe in Him and submit to … More Wells of Life

Slave to a Mindset

In my last post, I talked about wading deeper and surrendering to God’s compassionate mercy so that we may, in turn, fully love others. Oh, what a blessing it is to love others as Christ has loved us: unconditionally, unreservedly, and even in the face of adversity – to be a shoulder and arm for … More Slave to a Mindset

Bubble, Bubble

Bubble, bubble The water is troubled, Something rises up in me. It’s a spring of new water flowing in my veins! It’s scraping my rust and mold away. All the icky coming to the top, All the filthy flowing over the edge. The troubled water made the settled mud rise and the water muddy. BUT … More Bubble, Bubble
