The Great Exchange

In the ‘exchange’–My Life for you–old life for new, you carry nothing away.

Do you see?

You heaped that all upon Me.

When you believe, you receive, a life redeemed–bought with My Blood, never to carry that pain again.

That life was spent.

Behold all becomes NEW.

I did this for you!

The ‘baggage’ holds you down, as if your feet are weighted to the ground.

You can’t run the race for them–

So why would you allow them to run yours?

Loose the hold that binds you!

No one can do it for thee.

I’ve already released you; you shouldn’t have a care–

you must not carry it there!

Believe Me.

Just Believe!

“If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:23

“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” II Corinthians 5:17-21

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. for you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.”

“–let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1b-2

My First Book is Now Available

‘Comfort In The Challenge’

“You don’t have to look far to find someone coping with a challenge. It may be a friend, co-worker, parent or child. Maybe you need only to look within. The list of trials in life is endless–the challenge within. But God knows the need, and He knows the heart of the one you love–He knows YOU!

‘Comfort in the Challenge’ is filled with messages spoken from the heart of God. Inside you will find that God loves you and He cares about you, personally, and what you care about matters to Him. He wants to take that care, in exchange, with His thoughts of Love, Hope, Healing, and Direction. He speaks to the need, He speaks to You, to bring you–‘Comfort In The Challenge.'”

All royalties for the life of this book will go directly to the ministry, Canaanland, of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland, takes in men that have lost control of their lives to addiction and crime. Their tremendous (40 year) success rate has often prompted the judges of the surrounding area to offer, Canaanland, as an alternative to jail time. But, Canaanland, is not a bail from jail; it is a golden opportunity for those who truly want a new life! I have met some of these men and they are so full of joy that they absolutely shine–truly transformed by the love of God!

Canaanland charges nothing for a year stay; including room and board for their families as well, if necessary. I find the true dedication of Canaanland, in surrounding these men with love, and the life-changing power of the Word of God, to be unsurpassed. All is made possible through the dedication and hard work of these men, and generous donations of partner support.

It is their vision, to have a ‘Canaanland’ in every state, and my vision for this book, to help them realize this goal. Will you join me in helping these men and their families receive a new life? Will you consider purchasing ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ for your friends, loved ones, for yourself–for Canaanland? The books are beautiful and I am over-the-top excited for you to receive yours!

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
