From John Piper, http://www.desiringgod.org, this is awesome.

A great video clip by Rob Bell, this one is great. All of us dealing with “rain” in life, days when things are tough and we find it so hard to trudge on.


img_07241Psalm 76:4-6 reads “You are resplendent with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game. Valiant men lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands. At your rebuke, O’ God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still.” One of the first things that makes me praise and feel awe for the Lord is when I am traveling some of the great places of the Rocky Mountain West. On a recent trip in the summer of 2008, I led a group on a fly fishing excursion to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I mean, it is so awesomely beautiful that words cannot express the true beauty of it. When I behold the sight of the Teton Range in all of its immense size and beauty, I also feel the same in my heart toward my Father who created it. I see it as a small reflection of his majesty….for truly indeed He is more majestic than that range in all the glory that is possible in it.

When we were flying home we left the Jackson Hole airport and the plane in a slightly easterly track and then northerly track flew over the incredible Wind River Range. This range is home to the highest peaks in Wyoming, including the famous Gannett Peak. At 13804′ it is the highest point in Wyoming. Just remembering what it was like looking down and beholding the immense size and beauty of that range…I just don’t have the words. It again points me to the one who created it. And I wonder what it will be like when we see our Savior face to face and He takes us home………just like now I can’t come up with words to express what that is going to be like.

What a great message Paul Washer has here to believers in Christ….Enjoy!

The radical goodness of God’s grace. Does Obedience lead to Freedom or vice versa? Imagine how much rest and freedom and joy would come if we could give up pretending.

I could stand to hear this over and over……especially running to Jesus and Jesus loving you

Real And Authentic

Thanks Steve for reminding us…
