An Invitation

God speaks. He speaks into our hearts and minds through people, nature, the church. He also speaks to us through His Word. His Word is His love letter to us, His way of helping us remember who we are and assure us of His promises. His Word is the road map to help us live the passionate adventurous lives He always meant for us.

These blog entries are teasers. Insights and revelations to encourage you to read the bible, the greatest piece of literature that was written especially for you, God's child.

Sift (Part 1)


Judges 7:2-3 The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength has saved her, announce now to the people, ‘Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’” So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained.

God has called you to lead, you've said yes, taken action and are filled with the Holy Spirit. Now how do you choose your teammates? In Gideon's story, God tells him that there were too many people in his team. God wanted Israel to know that it was Him who would save Israel from battle, not human strength. So He asked those who were trembling in fear to leave the battle site. Today, choose teammates whose are so focused on the Lord that they are able to overcome their fears.
