Presence (and hello there!)

It's been way too long since my last post. It's been busy folks. But a good busy. I've had some fun recently at the Milan House of Prayer (MiHOP), part of the IHOP Kansas 24/7 prayer and praise movement. Here's a reflection from one of the last times I was there.


This is where it's at.
                       Literally and figuratively.
I want to float on the stream of Your love,
be carried by the tide of wonderful places unknown.
But I'm afraid. Honestly, I'm afraid.
This means leaving what little familiarity I had
in this place that is unfamiliar.
This means pulling up every anchor I had
cast in a harbor that isn't you.

But I'd rather ride Your wild waves than
be tied down to something You don't want me tied down to.
So I'm cutting the ropes until there's only one anchor left.

I'll cast it in You.
There's no safer harbor.

I've had some awesome times supporting other Christians in their sessions and I've started playing a Friday session rather regularly. It's been suuuuuuper fun folks. Super.
