And yet it is just like our God of an upside-down kingdom. I wonder if He designed such a coming because He so badly wants [...]

When All Is Well, I Say to My Soul

When All Is Well, I Say to My Soul

Grief is distant health is near gratitude is easy   roof is sturdy table is bountiful every need is met   and yet I must remember to say to my soul:   Go deeper to find Hunger and Thirst   Desperate Need Complete Dependence Full Surrender   without these treasures a heart would spoil not knowing how to be given [...]

Mercy is More Than Enough

Mercy is More Than Enough

The Name of God is Mercy is a book I’d highly recommend.

To the Wellspring

To the Wellspring

Rachel Norris

I wake thirsty

and thankful

knowing just

where to find You

I draw down deep

dip my ladle into

eternal, living

waters within

Spring up, O Well

within my soul

Faithful Fount

make me whole

I love how You taste –

honey-sweet joy

rich-roast righteousness

green-tea peace

I soak in the silence

drink today’s filling

full to overflowing

for there is more than enough

Send me, God.

I release the overflow

poured out, running down

lower still

because You are Faithful.
