Each of us is being transformed by an Eternal Love.

(Listen to my song “Lift Up Our Voices” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 30:12-13

You changed my mourning into dancing. With my whole being I sing endless praise to you.


Let’s face it. When we are at the top of our game and everything is going our way…we have no conscious need of God.

We would likely not actually say that…but we certainly are not thinking we need any help from anyone.

It’s only when things are not going according to our plans…when we encounter some form of adversity…that we turn to our Maker.

I believe a Loving Force…a Divine Benevolence…has turned many of my lowest points into highest points in due time.

That’s because God is in the redemption business.

That’s what Love does.

God’s glory is truly shown in transforming our apparent defeats into victories.

Jesus was always joining those on the fringes and margins of society…those who counted as nothing…so that they would know that they truly did count.

He healed the sick, restored sight to the blind and freed the oppressed.

Jesus showed that God’s love does not depend on our goodness…but God’s.

Even when we ignore GodGod does not ignore us. It’s like the unconditional love a parent has for a beloved daughter or son.

Kind of makes you want to sing and dance…doesn’t it?
