The Mission? Love!

dronesofheaven

leejohndrowteamCaptured by dangerous men, I knew I did not want to die. As they tied my hands behind me, all I could think of was my family, my friends and the mission I had undertaken.

They left the room and were yelling loudly.

“Kill him. Get it over”. Continue reading The Mission? Love!

Living Legacy – What Does That Mean?

amy dad“Jacob. What do you like best about vacation?”

“Family” replied my eight year old grandson.

For the first time since I was a child we had a family vacation. It consisted of two grandparents, five children and seven grandchildren. It took place on a lake in the middle of “Nowhere” New York. Somehow, some way we got everyone away at the same time to the same place. Continue reading Living Legacy – What Does That Mean?

Grace For All The Right Reasons

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

It is the day of grace. Grace. The man of Jesus. John 1:17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.

That never ending flow of empowerment through the believer. Grace. Unmerited, undeserved favor. We have heard them all. Used them all. Grace. Continue reading Grace For All The Right Reasons

One By One In New England

leejohndrowteamThis morning I shared a story of a fire across the land of New England. It was a word the Lord gave me with regard to awakening or revival. A timing in and of the Lord, where hearts are changed and focused on Him. The place where His goodness overcomes that which has previously “opposed” or been oblivious of Him.

You Are Welcome In This Place

marcell and IThe other morning I wrote about what makes our community viable, authentic and loving. I posted 4 points or traits. I realized that perhaps I needed to expound on them. Why? Because I think we get inundated with “bullet” points and tainted with language and its usage. The over use of words has dumbed down the meaning. It has reduced our understanding and caused us to be casual. Add in our potential for “been there done that” thinking that leads us to “next” and too often we miss the point.

An Atmosphere Of Love

leejohndrowteamThis morning I made a conscious decision to not “jump out” of bed. I lay there and listened to the sounds. As I often do, I meditated on the sounds, smells and activity of heaven. I began to think what the atmosphere looked like. What it truly would look like were it to be appropriated to earth in its entirety. As I wandered about the place, my hearing became more sensitive and I could hear love. The tangible, precious sound of love was in the atmosphere. It was not voices or sounds like you might think, but the sounds of molecules and atoms expanding and touching. The release of each contact was a sound unlike anything imaginable.

Without The Shedding Of Blood…

leejohndrowteamI recently found out that some of my grandchildren had not been to see sap boiled in a New England sugar house. So, I made the decision to take them.

A friend has a sugar house and yesterday after checking with him, I found out what time they would begin boiling. Determining that, we headed out a short time later. As we went up the hill to the small farm, my mind flashed to times in my life where I had helped to gather sap, get it to the sugar house and spend way too many hours to develop what many call “liquid gold”. (I love the taste.) Continue reading Without The Shedding Of Blood…
