In the Still of the Night

A drop of water falls on a still pool and leaves rings. Some would call them ripples, as the action affects the water in the immediate surrounding of the drop. One drop can create quite a stir–an impact.


Because it broke the silence–interrupted the solitude–one tiny drop.

I came–a tiny babe in the quiet of the night.

Most would not see the ‘ripple’ effect.

Most would not believe.

“Why would the Messiah come to shepherds?” “How could this be a King?” They argued amongst their neighbors and families–they argued about Me.

Nothing has changed. . .

There are still those who are unaware–still those who don’t believe. Still those arguing about when I’ll come again–for it’s been a long time, you see.

I did what I said–I came!

I’m coming again, but this time ALL will see. There’s no room for arguments–



“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 9:6-7

“With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord! Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.” Psalms 98:6-9

“For as the lightening comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man.” Matthew 24:27

“–and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:30b-31

“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:16-18

“–Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:4-8

“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20


Against All Odds

Against all odds you became saved, for it is not in your nature to seek good and shun evil. My children were created pure and holy…

then came sin.

Sin separated man from the Father and created a new nature and environment for his life…

  • The garden was no longer perfect
  • Trust was broken
  • Weeds entered in
  • Tears were shed

But I had a plan from the very beginning; to reinstate man into My Grace, I asked My Son to take your place.

Against all odds

God became a man. Born of a natural woman to sever the divide…

Mary agreed

Jesus became

But yet, there was more to come…

For you were born into the natural world, where sin still reigned–for without a Savior, there is no hope. A choice has to be made for man to be under the rule of God and not man. To have dominion and to rule and reign, one must choose the great exchange.

Your old life for one that is completely FREE–never again held to sin’s lying shame. Your life renewed–never to die again. Your spirit for ever shall live, and ever with Me you’ll remain. Where there is no more sorrow, sadness or pain–a perfect garden, no weeds–all gain.

Your answer then, was it against all odds that you said yes?

  • Yes to Jesus?
  • Yes to Love?
  • Yes to Life?

Yes, against all odds–welcome home son–welcome home daughter…

Welcome home!

Have you invited your friends? There is always room for more…

Against all odds

“Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.” Genesis 3:23

“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.” Genesis 4:7

“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and redeemed his people, and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David, as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old, that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us; to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant, the oath which he swore to our father Abraham, to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life.” Luke 1:68-75

“for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

“In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5

“And from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.” John 1:16-18

“Jesus answered him, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.'” John. 3:3

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God.” John. 3:14-21

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming, he who is called Christ; when he comes, he will show us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”” John 4:23-26


Be Still

So many want quick answers…

Hurry–Hurry–please answer my prayer! Often the answer is already there within. The Word is nigh thee, even in thine heart. (See Rom. 10:8)

I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. Quick friendships are shallow and have little value. It takes time spent together to build trust–to build a relationship that lasts.

The woman of Samaria, that came to the well didn’t know Me, but as I sat and talked with her she revealed to Me what she knew and had heard of Me; it allowed Me to clear her misconceptions, which made room for revelation and trust. It was then that she could receive–truly the answer to her heart’s cry.

She had many men in her life and was still empty. But in spending time with Me she was filled, and in joy and delight ran to tell all she knew of the one she had found–the Messiah. (See Jn. 4:4-42)

Come and draw from the deep well

It begins within

Commune in your heart with Me and be still

Know that I am God

Find that I AM a Fountain of Life

I will be found by those who diligently seek Me

With all of your heart

Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Ps. 46:10

“And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Heb. 11:6

” How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Ps. 36:7-9

“Behold, God is my salvation: I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Is. 12:2-3
