The Love Story of Grace

Our intimate journey with Christ is full of Him expressing and exposing more of his grace in our everyday lives. I was speaking with a friend who shared a very violent past. Parents that made some horrible choices that caused a lot of determent to this person as a child and as a middle-aged adult, years of dysfunction, seemingly has paralyzed as though left trapped in the past. The person began to share their flaws and paused because I seemed undaunted by their issues. Then stated, you aren’t going to beat me up, correct me, tell me how horrible of a Christian I am. My reply, I need God’s grace and you need God’s grace. I am not about throwing you away yet building you up through Christ.  What you are sharing with me is that you, as I and as we all, have mismanaged some areas in life. We are all…

CANVAS

  canvas   Today, I was inspired to write this blog post by capturing my 15-year-old son’s reflection of his daily devotional. We ask our son, Joshua Currie, to read a passage of scripture and/or devotional and share his reflection on what he has read. It does not have to be a thesis or dissertation. In fact, he can send myself and my spouse a quick text, at least a paragraph, to share his thoughts on what is unlocked for him as he reflects on what he has read. 1 Listen to my words, O Lord, give heed to my sighing and groaning. 2 Hear the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You do I pray. 3 In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart]….

C. Ashley Brown-Lawrence honors God through song (from Hope for Women Magazine http://hopeforwomenmag.com/entertainment-lifestyle/c-ashley-brown-lawrence-honors-god-through-song)

C. Ashely Brown-Lawrence has been singing since she was 2 years old and her dad wrote a song for her to sing. She hasn’t stopped singing since.We have finite minds, but we serve an infinite God. The Bible tells us to delight ourselves in the Lord, and He will give us the desires of our hearts. I have delighted myself in the Lord all of my life. I love serving God. There’s a difference between positioning for geographical opportunities and blessings.

Concealed for a Purpose

  In our self-absorbed cultural and the need to be “placed in the front,” it seems that we may have lost the blessings of being the hidden or concealed gems that operate in concert with the Holy Spirit. God declares us as friends (John 15:12-17, John 15:15) in the Bible and he also declares us as soldiers (2 Timothy 2:3). We fight in a realm that is unseen by carnal eyes. As with soldiers in the military, there are those who are out in front, some deployed on special assignments (covertly or overtly), some hidden in total seclusion yet there no one is of lesser value or more important than the other. On April 3, 2017, God began to share a word about the hidden troops. Whether a stay at home mom, someone that is caring for an aging parent, a steward of your family’s time to carve out moments…

Embrace & Pursue Wisdom

Embrace & Pursue Wisdom Embrace & Pursue Wisdom     Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. 5 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. 6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. 7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get[a]wisdom. Though it cost all you have,[b] get understanding. Proverbs 4: 4-7 Proverbs is the Book of Godly Wisdom. Throughout Proverbs we are admonished to embrace her, pay close attention to her, not to forsake her, understand, love, cherish, and pursue her at all cost – even though it may cost us everything we may have we must do everything within us to understand lady wisdom for she will protect us (Prov. 4:4-7). Lady wisdom adorns us with godly wisdom as she aides us in the navigation of life and life’s…

OVERBOARD a story of Disobedience & Coming Clean with God

        Years ago the Lord gave me an idea for a blog. I played it safe – very safe. I went on a free website and convinced myself I was being frugal – a good steward. There, I did it Lord.. I have obeyed what you have told your daughter to do (www.boundlesstouch.weebly.com). I even had my son to draw Jesus, knowing his touch – his love, his presence is ever touching and changes lives. Boundless Touch,  an appropriate name and one that I felt God leading me to use. Although I had skimped on investing for paid website hosting as a “good steward,” I still desired things to look polished, done in a spirit of excellence. That meant having great photos and content. Yet I had no budget for photographers, models, fashion designers, location scouts, set designers and other gifted individuals that I sensed that I…
