God Ordains and Orchestrates…

..humans to appear in your life in order to loving unsettle you – forcing you to reckon with your frailty and helplessness …because GRACE doesn’t mean anything to anyone except in the context of vulnerability and neediness. Humans are not “in the way” …they are ANCHORS (alignment-ers). Humans are sovereignly situated in your life to slow you down – and sometimes stop you dead in your path [stuck in a snow bank spinning your tires] – so that you can HEAR the MUSIC of the Gospel …that sweet song that says, “you are weak, but He is strong …you are unlovely, but YES! Jesus loves you! …And this you know! Because the Bible tells you so!

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. – Heb. 11:1

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? – Rom. 8:24


as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. – 2 Cor. 4:18


…for we walk by faith, not by sight. – 2 Cor. 5:7


Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory. – 1 Pet. 1:8

And he will become a sanctuary and a stone of offense and a rock of stumbling to both houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. – Isa. 8:14

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. – 1 Cor. 2:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. – Gal. 6:14

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Heb. 12:2

“The freak in modern fiction is usually disturbing to us because he keeps us from forgetting that we share in his state.” – FO’C

Shock peeps twd Xs Cru …Revelation.

“…the action of grace on a character who is not very willing to support it.” – Jonah & Jacob!

MUSIK, HIKING, O’CONNOR, LEWIS, TRICK SHOTS, MEANING-PURPOSE, STORY & SUFFERING.

Must be vulnerable to ENJOY (receive) GRACE. …*it is always hard to RECEIVE love when we know we Don’tDeserve it.*

It is imperative that a disciple achieve, or reach, renunciation.… Cheap grace is the person who says, “I do not have time to follow Jesus today because I am enjoying my grace.

 

  • When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, “Repent” (Mt 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.

“Caveat lector: we do not read the Bible in order to reduce our lives to what is convenient to us or manageable by us – we want to get in on the great invisibles of the Trinity, the soaring adorations of the angels, the quirky cragginess of the prophets, and … Jesus.”
― Eugene H. Peterson, Eat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading

 

Your “defense” in the presence of God is … [what?] … “I’m the victim.” [?] “You just don’t understand how hard I’ve had it God.” [?] “You really MUST excuse me God.” [?]

so your “hard life” is your righteousness in the presence of God? You have ‘God-in-your-debt’ via your victim mentality …God MUST feel bad for you, and this is your LEVERAGE with the Almighty, Holy, Holy, Holy LORD?

SAVOR RH – LONG SAVORING LOOK AROUND – – – ILLU: TyTy@CCR 4/21/17 – meaning and memories everywhere! Parallels really don’t breakdown so much as they are enriched and multi-angled and refractionated! – – – > e.g. 2 Cor. 5:17

God likes & aims to help you reckon with your helplessness:

Solitude: 127 hrs (illu) – stuck; Society (hate the version of ‘you’ around others) – stuck [e.g. family].

Dear K-train …To be really loved means that the people loving you will make life uncomfortable – – – meddle – insist on a standard higher than you can reach on your own. The demand is for deeper fellowship …not the superficial, merely cosmetic, “solutions” that have never transformed or ever made any lasting difference. Dear K-train – U chose enabling …we chose Marriage! the Ultimate Marriage, and all marriages in general, and your marriage in particular. the Health – the real good, truth, and beauty. We must desire and strive for it FOR YOU. You admit yourself – you cannot bear it or strive for this version of M alone!… FAMILY – – – you must forgive us? are you willing to persevere with unpleasants like us? How much forgiveness do you have? We are inviting you into a mess! U ain’t the only one who’s SCREWED UP!

We will keep our eyes on You, so we can set our hearts on You.

 

1 Cor. 4 – – – > TyTy must die to what TyTy thinks of TyTy

Gift of shame – – – blushing (Jer. 6).

Bobby had been wronged by Horatio. Bobby felt bitter. So Bobby made a list of various things that he knew for a fact that Horatio needed and/or would benefit from tremendously. And then Bobby was advised by Satan to submit the list to bad ritual, but Bobby said that crap be crouch’n at my door and I ain’t gonna have anything to do with it …here’s what Bobby did with that list – – – > he prayed that list for Horatio. *Nothing sucks anger & bitterness out of Bobby’s soul like genuinely striving and praying for the peace and healthy prosperity of his enemies and others in general 🙂
