IAM on FIRE!

Jeremiah 20:9  But if I say I’ll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!

When i was 22 years old, I received this verse as my life calling. I have a message that I believe must be shared as skillfully as possible.  That is my life calling.  It burns in my heart like a fire.
I have spent way too many years running from my calling, and I am weary from holding it in.  I can’t do it anymore!
 
God wore me out. I kept making free will decisions to run away from who I am, and what I was created to do. I am so thankful that He would not let me run away too far.  My decisions to run away also led to some consequences that were not so pleasant.  God used them to bring me back to him. I am so thankful that he would not let me go.  He wants you!
 
It’s a scary prayer to ask God: “I want to go deeper”  or “God, give me your heart”  the middle will be messy.  I want to encourage you, of the glorious end point!  The peace and joy of knowing you are living out your true mission on this earth! That’s a man on fire! Fire burns away the junk and things that do not matter, and it purifies and strengthens the eternal.  
Don’t be afraid of the fire, because what remains is what truly matters.  Don’t be afraid of the bold prayers for more!

That is who I am.  My identity is not in what I do, it is in the message.  
My identity is not in my success or bank account, it is in my Lord
My identity is not in my wife or kids, it is only in the words that burn in my heart
My identity is not in what anyone else on this world thinks or says about me, it is only in the good news that must go forth. 

IAM Awesome

Hi, I had to get this down in words today.  It’s a creed, a manifesto, a war cry.   A summary, but not the end.

IAM Victorious
I have supreme confidence in the one who gave me life
IAM Beautiful and I love myself
I see beauty in all of God’s creation
IAM skillfully and wonderfully created

My DNA is the DNA of God and so is yours
IAM loved by God, and nothing I can do can take away his Love for me
I have received deep inner healing from the wounds and lies of the world
IAM uniquely called to deliver a message of Love and Hope to all
I live my life with faith, vision and passion, never regret or excuses
IAM a Conquering Warrior
I fight for justice for those who cannot fight for themselves
Friend, my creed isn’t just for me. It’s for you too.  You have an amazing contribution to give our world, and you are the only person who is uniquely gifted to do it.  Find and become the best version of yourself.  Proclaim the truth about who you are everyday and night.  When you wake up, and when you go to sleep, look into mirror and see your beautiful face.  Smile and speak the truth to yourself and your soul. Your whole life up until this point may have been a battleground of getting beat up.  Today start the healing process inside of you.  Develop a new habit of loving and healing yourself.
I love you. I see you.
You are talented in many ways!

IAM Supremely Confident in My Identity

Mark 14:61-62 NLT But Jesus was silent and made no reply. Then the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” Jesus said, “ i am . And you will see the Son of Man seated in the place of power at God’s right hand and coming on the clouds of heaven. ”

Jesus knew who he was.  He spoke plainly and boldly.

And he knew where he was going, he knew his destiny, and he speaks with confidence about that truth!

If you take a look at the whole chapter and previous chapters in the gospel,  Jesus is finally betrayed and he stands before his accusers. Yes, that’s me, you got it!

But not wrongfully accused, but asked to give testimony about who he is.

Are you one of them Christians?

Yes, IAM, and I want to share the Love of Jesus with you!

Are you someone who can help me, because my family member is dying of cancer?

Yes, IAM, and I will pray for you and your family in the power of the Holy Spirit

Are you someone who can provide wisdom and insight into this horrible situation?

Yes, IAM, and I will speak the truth of God’s love and ways.

And everyday! Someone is crying out!  Who can bring sense or reason to this crazy crazy world we live in?  I need help!  I need someone to talk to!  I need someone to pray for a miracle!

With no hesitation, just instinct?  When our second nature, and first nature, become one powerful being moving in power, then we are confident!  Yes, IAM.

When I hear and read people’s prayer requests, I love the ones that say “I want to know God more!” Or “I want to go deeper”  or the really bold one “I want true faith” I boldy ask that God answers these prayers and He gives you a bold bold measure of strength, because these are prayers that will disrupt your middle class 3 bedroom 1.5 bath existence!

The middle will be messy, but the finished person will be Glorious!  And you will stand among the witnesses and warriors who know very clearly what they are, who they are, and what it is they are called to accomplish in this life.
God is refining you, purifying you, and transforming you!

Everyday, I hope to encourage you with another shade and aspect of God’s identity.

It’s my prayer that you will have the opportunity to boldly testify the truth in words and action
