Hope Unseen.

” If you put your mind and thoughts really at the disposal of the apostolic teaching and say, “Anything in my thinking that needs to be destroyed, destroy it,” that can utterly undo you.

There have been seasons in my life where I have wept over the dismantling of what felt like really important structures in my brain, so I think that is the first thing we do. We listen to Paul.

We submit everything we think — all of our ideas, all of our worldview, all of our viewpoints to God — and we say, “…Let your Word dismantle me if necessary.” ”
— J. Piper, DesiringGod.org

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. | 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

The water’s warm here, but the fire’s gone out
I played it safe for so long the passion left
Turns out safe is just another word for regret

 

‘Oh, teach me what it meaneth.’
We give love from an abundance — From leftover love.
We love the elite.
We put the ‘broken’ on the side.

If You saw us today, what would You say?
Lord, help us.
