The Magic of Risking Everything – Abraham & The God Dare
From The God Dare, releasing early this summer:
I’ve been thinking about Abraham a lot lately. Have you ever wondered how he was able to leave everything behind when God first called him? To walk away from what was probably a nice comfortable life and leave behind everything familiar, home, friends and family? How God asked him to risk it all and go to a new place He would show him?

Job and The Deeper Deeps or How to See God
Job is the one character, the one book, most of us wish was not in the bible. We don’t ever want to consider his lot falling to us. Don’t even go there.

“..blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil.” Job 1:1.
A description befitting most of you reading this. You’re good right?

Secrets of The God Dare
“We’ve got it all wrong. We’re searching for the very thing pursuing us. We search, we dig, we look. We fret and question, wonder and worry and all along it’s right in front of us, right under our nose. Can you smell the fragrance? It’s enticing in it’s might. Frightening and overwhelming our senses with power and possibility. Drawing us, reminding us of something we used to know and believe but have forgotten somewhere along the way. It’s all around us, pregnant in every day, infusing each moment small and large, ordinary and awesome. It’s God’s ‘yes’. His cosmic smile and nod of the head, his holy high-five, beckoning us to believe. Begging us to take Him at His word. To once and for all let go of fear, worry, pride and strife and just say yes to His yes.
