Sparks (or not)
Emitted from the fire, their tiny illumination endures for the briefest of moments…then, they are gone


Deliberately made with a purpose in mind.

Even if your parents didn’t exactly plan on you
in a careless moment of passion.
Even if you came to be  in the squalor of the slum
or the plush comfort of the privileged.
Even if you believe your existence is merely
a random roll of the dice on the crap table of the universe.
You were planned.
Even if horrible things still happen in this world
and even if by your own choices or the choices of others
you never fulfill your potential…
you never find your purpose…
you never make a mark in this world…
you are not a mistake.

Life on earth is but a vapor.
You have an eternity available to discover the depths of God’s love.
Like the mountain brook seeks the sea, love seeks an object.
The ultimate lover had an object in mind,
a landing point for that love…

…and that would be you.

Moses said, “Now show me your glory.”
And the Lord said, “I will cause all of my goodness to pass in front of you and I will proclaim my name in your presence…the Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin..”
Exodus 33, 34

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God! And that is what we are!” 1John 3:1

  1. Life on earth is vapor…absolutely! Each of us is intended…in the rain of a tear I find myself submerged
