The Mansion In My Heart

There is a mansion in each of our hearts. What is the state of its being? Is its interior hidden in darkness or is it full of light? Is it furnished with treasures and exquisite furnishings or is it all a mess? Are the rooms accessible or are they locked and barred? What do others see when they look into our mansion?

A Letter To The Church In…

I’ve been meditating on two chapters of scripture for quite some time now. On August 16, 2011, one year ago, the Lord gave me a word to the church in San Antonio, Texas.

At some point we have to realize that it’s not about perfection, but rather a relationship caught up in His love. It is His love that causes me to want to change anyway. Why would I want to change for someone who I don’t think loves me? If you don’t know His love??? SEEING HIS GRACE! Read the rest of this entry »
