Imagine if the stars did not shine. Would anyone be inspired to build a telescope to see into nothing?
This is what I have done!
I have imagined God lighting the torches of the stars to illuminate the planets and say to mankind, "Find me if you can!".
It is like a tease. People look far away rather than into who they were created to be in order to find where God takes up his estate.
It is so interesting about God that he is in those who believe in him because they have invited him into themselves, but as a humble guest, as Jesus has taught us, I think the fact is, that he doesn't elevate himself in us, but, no, rather, when we elevate him in us, THEN is when he takes the upper rooms in us.
It is then that we begin to see more of who God is in us! We have to welcome him into who we are ... "Come deeper, Lord!" "Come higher, Lord!" "Come further in me, Lord!"!
And there he will go in you!
My name is Jeff, and I will be your narrator! Hi!
The theme of this website came about years ago when I experienced in my personal life actually hearing God speak to me. He only said one word to me, which was "desire". He answered a prayer of mine, which was, "What do I lack that the early disciples had that I do not have now?"
His reply was exact and to the point just like the following writer in the scriptures states, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 (Source: King James Version of the bible)
This word "led me on the adventure of my lifetime because though I had been in church settings for over 40 years, I felt that I had no purpose. I had, what I had thought at the time, a lot of knowledge with very little recognition for my astuteness in my studies.
When God told me that I lacked desire, then I immediately picked up the best dictionary I had on hand and pursued every possible term in that dictionary in order to better understand what "desire" meant and how it came about.
After that, I thought of what I would desire the most, and what came to mind was that of God telling me on judgment day, "Well done, my good and faithful servant". From there, the phrase "Desire Good" was born into my life!
So please follow along with me on different topics of interest of mine and discover with me what I have found because I think many of the things might just blow you out of the matrix of what reality seems to be but isn't necessarily.
Prepare to dig deep because I am a dictionary kind of guy, so my interests most often will be backed up with the Oxford English Dictionary of 1888 (OED) to help clarify what I am trying to write to you. The OED is an historical dictionary with lots of interesting "origin story" backdrop on some of the entries. Be prepared to read. :)
Come on! Let's have fun shall we?
