Hidden Gold Somewhere in All of Us


“Often we are not aware of how close we are to that which we need but we think we do not have. In His grace, God has placed some hidden gold somewhere in all of us that meets our need at a desperate moment.”

In My Own Journey, He Has Won My Heart

“In our raping, molesting, defiled, diseased, greedy, impoverished, violent, warring, mismanaged planet with natural and man-made disasters, people don’t so much doubt that there is GOD; they do, however, suffer doubt that HE is GOOD.

In the face of all this, and my own sufferings, it’s no wonder God does not demand that I trust Him. No, instead, He invites me to learn of Him. In my own journey, He has won my heart. What might He do to win back yours?”

One, Two, Three, Go Be Free!

“So I began my journey with the Lord, and I always say I just wished that he’d waved his magic wand. ‘One, two, three, go be free! Go be straight, date, and mate; bing! But it didn’t happen, but what He did begin to do was to give me grace to crucify flesh, and He began to take me on a path that I would have never imagined. … My wonderful wife Karen of almost twenty-five years … didn’t marry me because she thought that her love could fix my homosexuality. She knew better. But she did say that I grew into a man who earned trust that she could respect.”

So, take me to the riverside
Take me under, baptize

Your forgiveness
Is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
Like holy water on my skin
On my skin
I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change

I will concentrate on being a God-pleaser and not a self-pleaser or man-pleaser.
The rest I leave in Your hands, Lord. Grant me favor with You and with men
and continue transforming me into the image of Your dear Son. Thank You Lord.”
