The Power of Desire

Posted by: | Comments (1)

1eatingHope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.  

Proverbs 13:12

Mankind was designed to live with a heart full of hope. It began in the Garden.  
Adam, walking in wholeness and obedience, named the animals. Yet as he named each one, something unsettling began in his heart. In fact, maybe we could say God was setting him up. As he named each animal, this unanswered desire arose in his heart.  

“None of these animals are like me!”

With each step, this powerful desire grew.  A true need arose within Adam. He needed someone like him. Someone to walk alongside him as he fulfilled his destiny. He needed a woman. He needed Eve.

Healing My Prostitute Heart

Posted by: | Comments (4)

1walkingstreetI have just returned from Pattaya, Thailand, a city where 30,000 prostitutes live and work. I felt a strong urgency about this particular mission trip. Part of our ministry while we were there was walking down the streets lined with bars and prostitutes and listening for God’s direction as we prayed and walked.

One particular night, I felt total exhaustion, emotionally and physically. My body had not adjusted at all to the 13 hour time difference.  Pushing past my exhaustion, I walked down Walking Street with Angel, my interpreter.

 

I pondered at my emotions. I  felt a total lack of condemnation for the thousands of girls who lined the streets and for the men who were looking to buy them for the night. I questioned God about my heart.

Wake Up!

clookle-pdA busy ministry schedule has limited my time to blog, but I want to give a quick update.

This is a land of great darkness, but more than that, it is a land of great need of the light of God’s love. Our ministry here has focused on sharing the love of God to the people of Thailand and also to Jason and Sarah Ricketts, who are missionaries here.

Off to Thailand

Posted by: | Comments (0)

1cloudI am off toThailand looking out my airplane window at an endless layer of white puffy clouds, forming a floor with no view of sky underneath. Risen and its rays glistening and dancing on the tops of the clouds, the sun gives a command performance. Purple, orange, and pink swirls and streaks paint the sky with magnificent color, speaking of my Creator for no other could christen a day with such wonder.

I look forward with anxious anticipation to the land before me. Thailand – a land of contradiction. From the beauty of the ocean to the oftentimes empty eyes of the people. What God has in store for me there I can only know in part, but I know I feel called to touch the lives of the people there. And I find that the language of the heart is universal. The language of the heart is a one size fits all and is spelled L-O-V-E, and it flows down from my heavenly Father and touches us all.
