God’s grace…

Proverbs 3: 5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

CleanWaterThere is no question that my path has been rich with Father God’s grace.  The unfortunate part of my past is the world held me hostage, so I did not even notice his love. My mind, body and spirit perished as a result of my desire to concur self-promotion. I discovered after each event, I lost more and more of my identity and life meaning. I became impoverished of purpose and weak in spirit.

Those close to me saw my journey’s struggle. My work, my health and my spirit challenged me in a way that I would never have overcome without our God’s healing power. While I have been silent in my faith during this time my belief in Jesus Christ was stronger than every before.

I turned 50 this year and as I say to my family and friends…”Life start’s at 50.” When Diane and I found Eastbrook, I knew immediately that Father God brought me home. I know now, that our Father shined his light through my struggle so I could experience his truth and grace. In the past when he spoke to me, I didn’t understand. Today, his messages are very clear having significant life changing meanings in every part of my life.

His gift of love, clarity and peace fill my heart like never before. I go forward with-out-a-doubt fully and submit myself wholly to God our Father.

Witnessed by Eastbrook Church, my family and friends during baptism,

I commit my life to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

In response to Doubters Alert. There is not a doubt in my mind.

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
