“So often we think God is just trying to get us to conform, when really what He is committed to is unbelievable transformation. If we could only enter the depths of his love we would find our lives deeply changed.”
Laura Rhinehart shares of the revelation moment where she understood the LORD’s presence as always being with her, within her.
(Laura also shares incredibly beautiful music on Soaking.Net’s playlist).
UPHEAVAL: Not to break you down, but to break you open…
QUOTE: “We can decide to build our life on God’s goodness, to hold fast to the truth that He is a good, good Father. I’ve come to believe that when God asks us to allow Him to break something open inside, it’s always so that He can plant something. He uproots places of pain, fear, anger, self-protection, etc., so that He can plant life.
If you’ve been feeling that disorder, that agitation, it’s not to shame you . . . it’s to heal you.
The upheaval is not to break you down; it’s to break you open.
It’s His persistent loving intention for you that moves Him to keep knocking on that specific door of your heart. The question is . . . will you let His light shine into that place?
He beckons us to be people who are brave with our lives. We must realize that in pursuing His bravery, ‘convenient’ isn’t really a word that’s going to get us where we want to go.
Convenience rarely leads to faith.”
