Share Lovingkindness During The Race

Best pic 7-2015.png

Lovingkindness or mercy is an English word defining “hesed” in the Old Testament. Hesed is a term that is included in covenant language describing relationships between people that reflect generosity or compassion that comes from love. When our relationship with God is broken, He works at renewing it, because He loves what He has created; even when we have rejected His sovereignty and try to control our own destiny. He restrains His anger and does not give up on us. Hesed has many meanings and it is difficult to define as an English expression. in His kingdom, hesed is relational, reciprocal and active.

Within the English culture when someone receives a gift, after saying “Thank you” the gratitude turns to a reciprocal gift or way of giving. In the New Testament it works this way also. God gives to us by His love and we respond as a disciple ready to give to Him. In the Old Testament it is based on hesed and in the New Testament it is called grace. Grace can be defined as: God doing something for us, by His love, that we cannot do for ourself. In other words, it describes one aspect of God’s incredible character.

In the midst of giving hesed or lovingkindness to others, you can still experience battles such as: the good fight of faith, wrestling with the enemy, and the war of denying self. Through it all, the author of Hebrews encourages us: Let us run with endurance the race that is put before us.” The word “race” is an easier way to identify the challenges of life we all face.

As we encounter various battles as we run the race, He still wants His character (hesed-mercy-grace) to be extended to His people, identifying His kingdom. We first are obligated to give to God because of His continuous gift of grace to us, and then reciprocate our giving and love to others. Regardless what we encounter in the race, let’s continue to extend lovingkindness or hesed to Him and to others!

Get Wisdom And Understanding!

Becky Best Pic 7-2015.png

Discernment. Logic. Reasoning skills. These were all important concepts to help develop language skills in our students, during my tenure as a Speech-Language Therapist. It was important for students to not only learn their vocabulary and sentence development, but to also acquire the ability to weigh and rightly discern situations to make quality decisions. It is still important in life to gain understanding. Life works more smoothly when we have knowledge. In Proverbs we find the timeless words of wise men and Rabbi’s who taught on the ways to conduct one’s life. Some have described Proverbs as “Wisdom Literature.” We find in chapter 4 suggestions for a better less painful plan to life in the author’s wise and fatherly instruction: “Pay attention, hear intelligently and gain or recognize understanding to live life well.” He states: “Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father, and give attention that you may gain understanding, for I give you sound teaching; Do not abandon my instruction…. Keep my precepts and live. Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!…Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; Love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. Prize her and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a garland of grace; She will present you with a crown of beauty.”

We can have intellectual knowledge and still end up with a very difficult life. Is it possible that our society has grown in material wealth but possibly failed in encouraging children and young people to develop their understanding and discernment, while learning to think, communicate and reason for themselves. Even Isaiah 1:18 emphasized the importance to “come and reason together.” Instead of making decisions by cultural norms, familial belief structures, he said-she said, what would happen if we were able to pause, take in and process information and respond more slowly to others and situations; while taking time to gain understanding and perspective and prayerfully seeking the Spirit of Truth who comes with divine wisdom and revelation?

Proverbs 4 closes with further guidance in verses 20-23. “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their whole body. Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.”

Father, Spirit of Truth, please come and help us to gain wisdom, revelation and understanding as we apply heaven’s principles and precepts to our lives, our relationships and decision making. Thank you for transforming our hearts to better align with you and your word. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, will give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. (Eph. 1:17-19a).

Reading, Writing and Running With Your Vision

Best pic 7-2015.png

I admit that Habakkuk 2:2 use to be a great motivating biblical scripture to help me accomplish the goals that I set. My paraphrase…”Write the vision, make it plain so that I can run with it” was what I read and declared aloud! My business background helped me to set goals, predict the outcome and challenges, and then follow through with what needed to be done to meet the goal within the timed deadline. The only problem was I didn’t know or expect a lovely wilderness experience where nothing worked, except developing an intimate relationship with the Lord.

The last few weeks of 2018, I began to sense the Lord bringing me back to this scripture in Habakkuk. My argument of course was, “Lord, surely we do not need to write the Vision/New Years resolution for the new year, because everyone breaks them anyway.” However, I did take the opportunity to study (not just read) this Old Testament “Minor” Prophet Habakkuk and what he wrote. Minor simply means his writing was short, not that it wasn’t important. For instance, in Habakkuk 2:4 it says, “But the righteous will live by faith.” Think of how Martin Luther changed society with this incredible verse that Habakkuk wrote!

Now Habakkuk was doing his fair share of complaining about the Chaldeans (Babylonians). He questioned the fairness of God’s management of the world and how evil seems to win out over the righteous. He saw violence, lawbreaking, and injustice going unpunished. By the end of Habakkuk 2 he did conclude that because of God’s holiness, his own questions were not justified.

Part of God’s answer to him in Habakkuk 2:2 was to “Record the vision, and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run.” I started to do a Hebrew word study on some of the English words, knowing it always brings a depth, and many times a totally different meaning to the English word in scripture. The word “vision” (chazown), means to “see, a mental sight, a dream, vision, a revelation, a prophecy.” I realized that God wanted each of us to write what He has spoken to us and make it clear.

The next part was much more than a New Year’s Resolution. The word “read” (quara) means to “proclaim, not just read it.” It was addressed to a specific recipient (us) and intended to elicit a specific response. It was not to the casual reader. It was also to name or declare the sovereignty over the things being named. Not just reading, but meditating and allowing the vision to penetrate your whole being so you may run with it.

The application of this scripture is to write out our words, prophecies, what we sense in prayer, highlighted scriptures, or how He spoke to us when we were journaling. Then, not just read them, but allow them to soak into our spirit. Mediate on them and allow the “vision” to motivate you by His Spirit. In Habakkuk 2:3 it does say: “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.” So if the vision has not yet come to pass, the appointed time will come! Even in his waiting, Habakkuk concluded at the end in 3:18: “Yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.”

I hope you will use the beginning of 2019 to review how God has spoken and communicated His “vision” for you. Allow it to permeate you, so you will be ready to run when the appointed time reveals itself!

In His Covenant Love,

God's Names Reveal His Character And Nature

Becky Best Pic 7-2015.png

What better way to prepare and strengthen yourself as we enter 2019 than to review and reflect upon some of God’s names. There are twists and turns with unexpected surprises, strife and challenges in this life journey, so may I suggest you consider taking a few moments to consider some of His names and prepare your heart. Personally, His names have kept me, strengthened and comforted me over the years and I know they will give support and life to you also.

This year, if you battle sickness of any kind, remember to call out, ask and declare His name over your circumstances, for He is “Jehovah-Rapha.” He is health and life to you. When you have any provisional needs call to Him and allow Him to help you and be your supply; for His name is “Jehovah-Jireh,” your Supplier. If you find yourself weary and in need of guidance and protection, remember to call upon Him as - “Jehovah-Nissi,” for the Lord is your banner and conqueror. This name was actually given by Moses who gave this name to the altar he built as they celebrated the defeat of the Amalekites at Rephidim in Exodus 17:15. His banner over you is not only Love, but Victory for you! Always know that whatever your situation this year, you will find Him present, for HIs name is also Jehovah-Shamah - “Jehovah is there!.” This name was given to the city in Ezekiel’s vision in Ezekiel 48:35. This truly defines His character and His positioning to you; always in the mist - always there with you!

There are so many names of God it is difficult to list them all here. But if you are interested and find His names comforting, you can of course check the internet. Also John Paul Jackson wrote a wonderful book of HIs names: “I Am: 365 Names of God”, and Katherine Johnson has an in depth manual on the Names of God through our Covenant Center bookstore which you can find on our website: www.thecovenantcenter.com.

As you study His names, you will become more intimately aware of who God is; and knowing Him more intimately, you will receive a greater understanding of not only His nature and character, but also HIs ways.

I’ve listed a few of His names that have been very precious to me. I hope you find them encouraging and enriching to your life in Christ.

Jehovah-Adonai - “Jehovah, My Master and Lord”
Jehovah-El-Shaddai - “Jehovah, Who is More Than Enough”
Jehovah-Elyon - “Jehovah, God Most High.”
Jehovah-M’Kaddesh - “Jehovah My Sanctifier”
Jehovah-Rohi - “Jehovah My Shepherd”
Jehovah-Shalom - “Jehovah My Peace and Prosperity”
Jehovah-Tsidquenu - “Jehovah My Righteousness”
Jehovah-Yahweh - “Jehovah -Great I Am”
Jehovah-Or - “The Lord is LIght”
Jehovah-Goaleka - “The Lord My Redeemer”
Jehovah-Isabaoth - “The Lord of Host”

You are precious to God! He loves you! When you are confronted in any situation this year, know that it is a set up for Him to reveal His nature and His character to you and for you. He desires to intimately know you and I pray that through this year your relationship with Him will grow and your life will be enriched and changed by His love and grace.

In HIs Love,

The God Of All Comfort

Becky Best Pic 7-2015.png

Pain and suffering is an inevitable part of life in this world. As much as we may resist it, sooner or later it finds us. For most of Thanksgiving and now into the Christmas season, I’ve been sitting here with intense pain and spasms from a near miss auto accident. I’ve actually battled back, neck and disc pain for over forty years from a high speed head on crash while in my 20’s. I see more and more each day, each painful episode of life gives us an opportunity to know Him more intimately, in His faithfulness, His presence, love and beauty, as well as identifying with His suffering.

In our pain and weakness God comes with His comfort and peace. In our loneliness, He comes as a friend and teacher. In our times of discouragement He comes as the God of Hope. He teaches us there are moments in life to simply embrace the pain and allow Him to do His deep work and bring healing and new life. We find ourselves alone with HIm, and in this time a deeper more intimate relationship and understanding of HIm and His ways begins to form. In this time we begin to understand that He has never left us or forsaken us. He is always present to guide and comfort, and in our pain and by His word, He changes us a little each day into more of His image.

May this Christmas and New Year season, whatever your situation, find you wrapped in HIs arms of comfort and peace as He changes you to appear like more of HIm.

Father, thank you that you are always with us, especially in times of pain and discomfort. Thank You for strengthening us and imparting to us greater peace as we learn to surrender our circumstances to You, so You may have Your way and complete Your divine word within us. Thank You for the lessons of patience and waiting as You change our hearts; and thank You in these moments of developing an attitude of thankfulness for the little things of life that expand in our eyes and hearts. Where our appreciation grows in the things we often take for granted, as they burst forth in beauty and brilliance revealing Your omnipotence and majesty.

And now during this sacred season and new year, “May the God of all comfort, who comforts in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ” (2 Corinthians 1:4-5).

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New year!

In His Love,

Continued Thanksgiving

Best pic 7-2015.png

Just because Thanksgiving has passed does not mean we have to forget about a sincere heart of thankfulness. 1st Thessalonians 5 speaks of this as it declares: “In everything give thanks.” I realize that everyone has life challenges and sometimes suffering that has caused us to question at times if God is around, does He hear us or does He care. We may say or think, “If He really cared, why didn’t He do something or stop this event from happening?” These are difficult questions to wrestle through.

To understand the covenant that God has invited us to enter, we also need to remember that He is holy, faithful and trustworthy. His will for us is based on His best intended development for us. He knows what we need. He chooses to love us. The struggles we experience do not dictate or change His love for us. He guides us back to the promises and blessings of being in relationship with HIm. My attitude or sin may affect my joy and disrupt my communion with Him, but He does not give up on me.

After we wrestle with Him and some of our discouragement subsides, I believe Adam Clark summarizes and gives great encouragement in the following found in his commentary on 1st Thessalonians 5:18. It states: In everything give thanks, for this reason, that all things work together for good to them that love God; therefore, every occurrence may be a subject of gratitude and thankfulness. While we live to God, prosperity and adversity will be equally helpful to you. For this is the will of God, that ye should be always happy; that he should ever be in the spirit of prayer; and that ye should profit by every occurrence in life, and be continually grateful and obedient; for gratitude and obedience are inseparably connected.

I am not saying that there are not challenges for each believer, but even James reminds us of Job in James 5:11: “We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful.”

Lord, give us a heart of thanksgiving! Thank you for Your love, Your mercy, grace and compassion!

"Don't Judge Me!"

Best pic 7-2015.png

How many of you get a little close to offering a suggestion to someone and they say, “Don’t judge me…that’s what the Bible says!” Usually, that comment sort of stops most people quickly in their tracks. So what does Jesus really say about judging? My wife had a vision that she wrote out on our Covenant Center blog site recently, as she observed many believers responding to the correction of the Lord regarding their judgments and criticism. What does the vision mean in light of scripture?

Matthew 7:1-2; “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.” It might be beneficial to define the word “judge”, krino in the Greek, because it appears we will be held to that same standard that we hold everyone else to.

“Judge” means to divide, separate, make a distinction, or to come to a decision. In Matthew 7 vs 1 and 2, it means to pass sentence or give one’s opinion in a private manner. In other places in the Bible it does not mean we are not meant to judge, discern, or distinguish spiritual or natural realities. In Galatians 6:1-2 it says: “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently.” So we are suppose to judge, confront, and restore, but do it with love. 1st Corinthians 5 teaches believers that we are to judge each other within the church and God will judge those outside the church.

In John 5:22 it says, “For not even the Father judges anyone, but has given all judgment to the Son.” In John 8:15 Jesus says: “You judge after the flesh; I judge no man.” So, at this time, there is not judging, like a final solemn judicial manner being released from God or Son.

Back to Matthew 7. What did Jesus mean then? I believe the next three verses help explain much more in what He meant. Verse 3-5 says, “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye,, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

Therefore, there seems to be consequences for those who are quick to see sins of others, but are blind and unwilling to hold themselves accountable to the same standard that they hold everyone else to. It appears that the judgment is worse for those that fail to look at their own sin when they are addressing other’s sin.

It isn’t that the Lord has forbidden all moral judgment or accountability. He forbids harsh, prideful and hypocritical judgment that condemns others without evaluating or judging themselves. We must look at our self first. Now I suggest you visit my wife Becky’s blog post on our Covenant Center web site, entitled, “Loose Lips Sink Ships.”

With Covenant Love,

Loose Lips Sink Ships

Becky Best Pic 7-2015.png

It was early in the morning of October 18th around 4 am, when during a restful sleep, I began brushing away from my cheek what seemed like feathers moving across my face. One, then two more swishes of my hand, I then sensed the gentle pressure like a hand on my shoulder. I opened my eyes thinking Richard was waking me, when I realized an angel was escorting me into a vision. I began hearing conversations, some crying, praying and some wailing. I could sense the pain in the intensity of their cries. I thought at first It must be our neighbors, when I suddenly was taken to a large gathering of people weeping.

There were multitudes of people crying, some deeply wailing in sorrow and repentance. Prayers were ascending. They were on their knees in what seemed to be a very large church setting with stained glass windows without walls. I was pondering what had brought them to such sadness when I was next taken into a heavenly realm where I was observing God the Father speaking with His angelic hosts. They were all looking down watching the mass of people kneeling sorrowfully when God, whose face appeared in a cloud like mist, similar to a Michelangelo painting in the Sistine Chapel, began to speak.

His voice was stern and rich with divine authority, and yet I could sense His fathomless love as He sternly, and yet wistfully spoke correction and divine adjustment to His children. It was evident that His deep concern and desire for His children to succeed and live well, without being hindered by the lack of understanding of His divine kingdom principles, brought Him to this moment to speak a word of guidance and caution. He spoke: “My children, who are you to criticize and judge each other? Many of My people have developed ‘loose lips.’ When you criticize others, you criticize Me! When you judge them, you judge Me! Ha! Ha!…How arrogant and self righteous you are, when you stand and speak exalting what you think you know and believe, trusting in your own understanding and not seeking Mine; choosing to act in your own self righteousness and not Mine. What revelation knowledge or understanding do you have unless I give it to you? Do you have the power to know and understand the depths of the heart of man? Ha! Is it written, do not touch My anointed or my chosen ones (Ps 105:15) and yet you try to destroy them with your words or your controlling prayers. Nor are you to touch My works that I have anointed for My plans and purposes. And yet, you vainly place your understanding above My knowledge.

Be careful of your actions and what you speak in the coming days, for I am releasing a new dispensation of My kingdom. My people have lived in My great grace, and so it shall be; but I am releasing My power anew, where once again the earth will shake with awe and wonder, as well as the fear of Who I Am. I am bringing a new order, realigning and exposing, as well as correcting. Keep your eyes and focus upon Me and you will not fall. Choose to remain in a place of humility and surrender, and I will deal with those who judge, criticize or dishonor.

My plumb-line has fallen, on which side do you stand? Behold, I am preparing to do great things in the earth. Will you not see it, or understand it? Holiness will be written beside My banner of love. Those who choose to position themselves in purity and humility will be honored and elevated in the coming days. Choose your words wisely and surrender any criticism or judgment of others to Me.”

Father, thank you for your love that brings adjustments and corrections as well as your revelatory plans and purposes in this life. Increase our understanding of Your plans and desires. Take the coal to our lips, and help us to walk in your ways, releasing hope and life to others. Bring your divine guidance in how we should pray and how we should respond to others. Thank you Father for your love and guidance, as well as your desire for us to live well and prosper in your kingdom here on earth.

Just a note: Upon perceiving “Loose Lips” which I had never heard before, a little research revealed that it is an idiom originating during WWII. Loose Lips Sink Ships was used on posters during the war to encourage citizens to “Beware of unguarded talk.”

May His blessings and truth bring life to you and family,

God's Appointed Fall Feasts

Best pic 7-2015.png

We find described in Leviticus 23 God's feasts or His appointed times of celebration and consecration. The fall feast is a season when God wants His people to learn to rest in Him. The Feast of Passover teaches about God's peace; the Feast of Pentecost instructs us on God's power; and the Feast of Tabernacles gives understanding about God's rest.

Even though the days previous to the feast were a time of repentance and reflection, the Feast of Tabernacles celebrated the final ingathering of the harvest which God had blessed the people with for year. The fruit of the land had been reaped, so the people could rest from their harvesting labors. It was a time of great rejoicing! They would celebrate and thank God in advance for the next harvest.

The Feast of Tabernacles emphasized a rest with the Lord, however it did not necessarily mean to literally lay down and do nothing. Rest meant to continue to be intimate with Him, staying involved in the normal work of the Kingdom, while continuing with their occupation, family, study, prayer and ministry.

The dates for this Fall, 2018 are: 

Rosh Hashanna ( Feast of Trumpets) Beginning of the New Year - September  9 - 10
Days of Awe - Include the 10 days from Rosh Hashanna to Yom Kippur
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) A day of fasting - September 18 - 19
Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles/Booths - September 23 - 30

I still personally believe God is doing many things behind the scenes during this time of restoration and reconciliation. I know during this Fall season God is going to move in a great way, affecting not only the seven mountains, but His people individually as well. I do not know how it will play out, but I know there is a correction coming to level out the playing field and to begin to restore what has been stolen from His people.

Let's celebrate His Fall Feasts and look forward to this New year!

In His covenant love,

Vision of God's Family - Vanderly Arnold

Becky Best Pic 7-2015.png

The following vision by Vanderly Arnold is such a precious picture of not only our Covenant Center family but I believe a beautiful prophetic picture of the marvelous design of God's Kingdom and His people. I hope you are encouraged and enjoy this delightful picture of the diversity in the unity of God's family. 

During worship on the Sunday of our 20th anniversary of The Covenant Center, I experienced an open vision. In front of me I saw vibrant green earth and it was covered with birds of every kind from every part of the world! Each bird was spreading and flapping their wings, sometimes jumping a bit off the ground - almost dancing. Their faces emitted such joy that matched the passion of their movement. The vision was so vibrant and colorful! I heard a sound from the sky and the sound moved and swirled by the wind in the canopy of trees. As the sound moved through the layers of the tree canopy, the sound would touch the leaves and separate into different sheets of music, creating more sound and texture. The sound moved like wind but did not sound like wind; it had its own unique set of high pitches.

The birds were clustered together, flapping and moving, but as the sound reach them they moved even more emphatically with strong bursting flaps and jumps. A falcon stood next to a displayed peacock and the peacock stood beside a hopping Yellow Finch, that stood among dancing white pelicans, that bumped into a yapping and clapping toucan. There was ever bird imaginable! At face-value, the picture seemed silly and goofy, almost obnoxious, but when you stood back, the sight was magnificent and beautiful - full of beauty, color and joy!

I asked God, "What am I looking at?" He replied: "You are looking at your community! This is The Covenant Center! Isn't it beautiful? This is what I see when I look at you. Do you see and feel all the joy and passion? This is what I feel when I watch you; and what sets apart this community is that not only do you love Me, not only do you worship Me, but you hear My sounds of heaven. But not only do you hear it, you respond to it! You move according to how I move! And this makes you love Me all the more!

Look at my falcons, raptors and eagles! My wrens, cardinals and finches! My mocking birds, owls, woodpeckers and quail! My pelicans, storks, gulls and geese! My parrots, toucans and cockatoos! My swans! My hummingbirds! Look at each of you. Each of you are so different in how you come but collectively, you come! You come to love Me. You worship Me. You hear Me and respond to Me. Each one of you have a distinct role as a part of this community. Each one hears Me and responds to Me in how I created them. In the same way each bird is still a bird; they are different and unique in how I have created them to be a bird. And so it is for The Covenant Center. This is what I see, and I adore what I see! I absolutely love you! And as a result of your coming together, there is so much love and so much beauty and color, and so much joy! I love what I see and I love you!"

This vision stands apart in one of the most vibrantly colorful and passionate pictures God has ever gifted my eyes to see. I felt so beautiful and loved by God when I looked upon my community! It was a bit silly, a little obnoxious, but there was lots of enthusiasm and passion we collectively had for our Lord. Without trying, we really are unique, and the key is we come together to love and worship God, and we move to the sound of His voice accordingly. Each bird has a different role that is represented in our community:

Birds of Prey -  Raptor is Latin and it means, "to seize" and "to take by force." There are those of us who by the faith of God go after what has been stolen and go after and destroy the works of the enemy. If you resonate with that, then you are a bird of prey in this vision.

Calling Birds - These are my messengers to share with the community as well as send out beyond; a fresh perspective and revelation of God's truth. Are you a messenger of God? Then you are one of His calling birds.

Song Birds - These are the worshippers in the house of God that lead us to respond to the sound of God within us and around us. Are you designed to worship? Then you are a Song Bird among us.

Backyard Birds -  Both Calling Birds and Song Birds are backyard birds. These birds are designed to mate for life, stick together and keep rebuilding their homes and raising families. Backyard Birds are the ones who say I'm committed to my spouse. I'm committed to my family and I'm committed to covenantal relationships. If you are one of those in this community, we need you as an example of honor in relationships.

Peacocks - This is the artistry, creativity and beauty of God among us, that helps bring the community to an intimate encounter with God as we are captivated by His beauty. Does this resonate with how God designed you? The you are a peacock among us.

Water Birds - These birds were affectionately the most adorably obnoxious. These are the birds that understand the vitality in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They immerse themselves in a spirit-filled lifestyle, because they know the joy that comes from being totally dependent on the Holy Spirit. I want to be a Water Bird!

Tropical Birds  - These birds demonstrate God's love and His transcendence ways that move us into deeper freedom with Him. God desires to move beyond our limiting box of thinking and expectations. He longs to transcend beyond our imagination. You only see God as this "one way"? You think God will only do " this or that?" These birds represent those in our community that come in and want to impact our minds and hearts with His love and freedom! Vanderly Arnold

In HIs love,
