It’s time for the Army of God to rise forth because…God is Good!

Here are two stories that I received by e-mail on Tuesday (24th January 2012), that challenge us all … to step up and out …

These stories demonstrate that we can all do this walk with God in radical obedience and touch people’s lives dramatically “as we go”  … where ever we are … by stopping and listening and acting …

They will challenge the “mature of faith” to step up into it and encourage “the new” to give it a go …

These stories are from a new friend who, with her husband and family, have quickly embedded themselves deep into my family’s hearts … they, as a family, have been deeply impacted by God, especially in the last week or two, and are now stepping out in radical obedience as they listen to God’s heart and His promptings…

So many amazing things have been happening for me I have to share a few with you.

I went to church 2 weeks ago at OLA, I saw a lady that I knew a long time ago. She looked very unwell, was in a wheel chair and had lost her hair. I felt so strongly I needed to pray for her, so I did. While I was praying I got messages to tell her, I so wanted to approach her and tell her so many things but I could not find the courage. Two weeks passed and it has been on my mind everyday, I have prayed for her and have still felt strongly I needed to speak with her.

Yesterday I downloaded music (Isi de Gersigny) “You are Beautiful”,  I followed what I was being told to do and just went with it. I got in the car and drove to her house which is so very very strange as I did not have the address but I found her. I knew that she lived around P… Street, E Street, maybe S Street but had no house number.  God took me to her home. I didn’t even ring the door bell I just stood there and her husband opened the door and invited me in. He said he remembered me and sees me at church which I was surprised.

He turned the  tv off and together the 3 of us sat and prayed. I told her what I needed to tell her, she wept and her husband told me what I said was exactly how he felt towards his wife. That she is beautiful, an angel in the eyes of God. He put the cd on and she held my hands as the tears flowed.

I left feeling like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, her husband thanked me for coming, I felt no embarrassment just peace.

Later the same night R and i went to the supermarket.  While collecting the groceries I saw in the corner of my eye a lady shop lifting. I questioned why did God just allow me to see that, what am I supposed to do with that information. I wandered through the supermarket asking for guidance, asking God to help me make the right decision.

Going through the register this same lady was in front of me, she was very thin and had the appearance and energy of someone who was struggling with life. Her grocery items came to a total of around $75, she opened her wallet to pay. I stepped forward (R was thinking what are you doing D, but did not say a word). I looked at the lady and said “i do not want you to get in trouble, but I saw what you did”. I asked her to return the goods onto the counter and i would pay for her shopping. She reached into her top and pulled out the stolen item (a big block of cheese). Her eyes filled up as she told me it was survival that made her do it and that she didn’t really want to and felt terrible. I paid  for her shopping. We then stepped to the side and held hands and prayed, she looked me in the eyes and said you have my word I will never ever ever do that again. She raised her arms in the air and wept as God touched her heart. Rick and I left the supermarket, got in the car and felt that “too drunk to drive feeling”.   We sat quietly and thanked the Lord for creating the unspoken mutual understanding that R and I both have that will allow us to step forward and help others knowing that I have R’s full support and vice versa that he has mine.

Thank you for giving me the strength to follow my heart.

Love D

I think that these two stories say it all …

It’s time for the Army of God to rise forth … It’s time for the goodness of God to be revealed … Its time for us all that believe to enter into the fullness of our destiny as laid down lovers of a good God …

It’s time to walk as a fully authorised Bride of Christ, where ever we go, what ever we do, because …

God IS Good!

Blessing businesses on holiday and a Praise Report … for God IS Good!

I am currently away at a beautiful sea-side town in Victoria, Australia (yes I am blessed!) and went wandering through some local shops with a friend yesterday.  We wandered into a local home wares store and as I passed by the counter I noticed what a beautiful looking girl was behind the counter.  I greeted her but she did not look up  … I tried again, as I purchased some soap as a gift, and she glanced at me briefly, … and, as I stood, I felt that I needed to offer to pray.

There were a few people waiting to be served, so I stood watching, knowing I was not to leave until I had prayed and so I suggested to my friend that she go on ahead and I would catch up …

I went back to the counter and, laughing, explained I was a Christian and asked if I could pray for her.  She said yes, engaging me much more directly, I asked her name, I told her mine and invited the Holy Spirit to come and glanced around the shop.  As I did so I felt God indicate that there was something about a contract or lease that was going on and so I asked her about it …

Se looked at me in astonishment and said “yes” asking me how I knew and I responded that He (God – and motioned upwards with my head as I laughed) told me … and so I prayed for favour … favour for the business, favour for the family business structure behind the business (and I asked for the name of the family business), favour for the family, favour regarding the contractual negotiations, favour regarding the lease hold, and lastly favour for her … a double portion …

As I prayed for this beautiful girl I sensed God indicate that she had deeply buried dreams in her heart, and it was time for them to be brought to the surface, and so, I prayed for this girl …I called forth her dreams and declared her destiny open in the name of Jesus, open doors to her future and favour … more favour …

I left after briefly telling a few testimonies of other businesses that had been prayed for in the area and in North Queensland, and how they had been blessed by God since … I said to her to watch for the favour to flow, I thanked her for allowing me to pray and left with her smiling and looking at me square in the eyes …

We later walked through another shop, one of my favourites in the area.  It had a lovely atmosphere and as I wandered and chatted to the owner, I noticed a wooden crucifix over the desk where the owner sat. I instantly asked “are you a Christian?” and she responded with a smile and a “why yes I am, are you?” I answered in the affirmative and said the shop had such a lovely feel to it and asked if I could pray for her.  She responded “absolutely, yes” and so I took her hands in mine and prayed blessing and favour on her business.  As I did I sensed that times had not been tough and said so I said what I felt I was hearing … she agreed … I then said “in fact times have been good” and she agreed again and so I prayed greater blessing, for more favour, for an abundance of favour, blessing prosperity, declaring that since our God was abundant let there be an abundance in her life … a greater prosperity in all things good.

She looked at me and said “I felt that!”

So, I asked “what did you feel?”

She replied, “I felt that go right up my arms” and she thanked me…

As we chatted some more in light of a place or thing having a lovely atmosphere I told her the story of the beanie knitted with love – how we had bought a beanie a while ago down the street and it felt like it had been knitted with love … and how it so turned out it had been … knitted with love by a lovely Christian woman who wept as I prayed for her … as she felt God’s love flood her body …

I said she could read about it on a blog … and she excitedly said “do you blog?” I said “yes” and gave her the details …

As she wrote them down I told her how God’s Presence had come so strongly in the second-hand book shop that I had not wanted to move and the Christian woman I had prayed for had wept as I declared God’s favour and blessing on the sale of her beloved business and leasehold …

I said I never found out what happened to the end if the story …

She told me she knew the end of the story …

She said that the woman had sold her business and lease hold, instead of just walking away from it … the story had turned out well, for the woman in question was living near her other little second-hand book shop, in a nearby town and was living a very happy life indeed …

I was delighted … I felt so blessed … I had got to pray for a beautiful woman of God, and she in turn was able to share how a prayer story (one that had intimidated me) had turned out and how God’s goodness had yet again shone through a supposedly desperate and hopeless situation …

I left full of joy, having given this woman the blog details with her excitedly (or so it seemed to me) planning to read more stories of God’s goodness because she knows, as well as I know, that…

God is good!

We cannot out give God because God is Good! I’s testimony of a good God.

We cannot out give God.  When we sow as He directs, the harvest will come in … but, we need not only to be ready to sow, obey when told to do so, we also need to be ready and watching to celebrate how He blesses us in return …

This story was received the day I posted my story of regret, just prior to Christmas, about “missing the mark” …

It confirms and affirms that when we obey, instead of using “logic”, God will bless, because He is Good …

The story reads as follows:

Your fruit and veg posting was a double blessing, as we all need to be reminded not only of God’s goodness, but that we can miss it so easily if we let logic take over – something I have done before…

I have a short story you might want to share.

About 10 years ago I decided that for me, Christmas would be a time when I gave Jesus a birthday present since everyone else seemed to be getting presents on His birthday. I believed the amount I it was right for me to give was $200 and it has been my greatest pleasure each year to wait in anticipation as God showed me to whom His present would be given.

Sometimes it has been a stranger in the street, sometimes a single mother I worked with and sometimes an elderly couple at church, or a sick neighbour.

This year I knew to whom God’s gift would go, but my work hours were dramatically reduced over the past month due to a new competitor opening in the area. This has left my funds dramatically depleted and, other than my young nephew, no one was getting a present. My credit card was $583 over its limit – I had to used it to pay bills, and in faith I prayed for the extra hours to get the $200 for God’s present, but when it came, with a credit card debt that high, logic kicked in about having to honour my debts first. (What greater debt do I have than to the Lord).

As I prayed I was reminded not to worry about tomorrow so I released my $200 to the Lord.

Within 24 hours, and with no one knowing I was $583 over my credit card limit, I got a call from a friend who had just had lunch with another friend who had money he wanted to sow. He had $1200 and felt I was to be given some of it. As they prayed, he felt the Lord told him to give me $600 and a few hours later it was in my account.

God showed me, yet again, that when I take care of the things He has put on my heart, I can trust Him to take care of the other things.

Not only was it enough to cover the excess credit card bill, it was also triple the amount I had given the Lord!

I wonder why I ever hesitated when God has repeatedly provided in miraculous ways.

And He will always provide because …

God is Good!

Even when we miss it … God is Good!

Hearing God’s voice as we go … to be in His Presence as we walk out our every day life, to hear and step in time, in tune, with His heart beat is surely one of life’s greatest pleasures and delights …

Even when we are listening … even when we hear … we can still miss the mark … He loves us thoroughly, regardless …

Last Friday I placed an order for fruit and vegetables.  As I did felt an inclination to place an order for some friends that were due to return from being overseas the same weekend …

I emailed a query about delivery times, our delivery cycle was for Tuesday, their area was for a Thursday and so I used “logic” to figure I must have heard wrong, since by Thursday these friends would well and truly be home from holidays and would be organised enough to have their supplies in the fridge … I also figured I could place the order later since their cut off time was a few days later than when I was ordering, so I figured I had time …

Yesterday, the following Thursday morning I sent a text message to my friend and received a text back saying she was ill, and had no food in the house and had done no shopping …

I instantly felt a pang of regret …

I texted back I would pray and with a full day scheduled I rang the organic company knowing full well that the cut off date was past and that they would be packing their boxes, for their last day of delivery before the Christmas break of a month … it would be a miracle to be able to arrange a box of produce!

I rang, explained my dilemma.  Thankfully they related, since they are Christians, and promised to do their best, but that they had really only bought enough produce for the current order cycle since they were shutting after this run for Christmas … I prayed for a multiplication of food and waited …

About an hour later, I received a call and was told they had enough for a small box of produce with a few extras …

So, I arranged for the delivery.

The family that received the box were delighted, but I still apologised to them for missing the mark … I knew I had needed to order a bigger box, not delay the obedience, but to hear and obey, and so they had not received their full blessing …

The moral of the story … even when we listen, and hear … we can still miss God’s voice, His will.  My role is to be obedient, not “logical”, because we really do not know what is going on in other peoples’ lives … our choice to obey immediately, or not, can impact others dramatically …

Now yes, I acknowledge that this was not a life and death situation like the bus full of children story, but still …we are a body and we need to support one another … we need to listen and obey … for …

… if you love Me, you will obey [Me] … (John 14:15)

I could have erred on generosity, rather than logic (I’d rather “miss it” and err on the side of generosity and kindness) … if we believe we hear from Him, and we all do, and if we feel we are being asked to do something that resonates with His character of loving kindness, generosity, abundance, encouraging, uplifting …then we cannot go far wrong …

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12)

And, as a body we need one another … with Christ as the head

From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. (Ephesians 4:16)

So we need to obey, we need to encourage one another, bless one another, up hold one another … in the natural and in the spiritual with prayer … and if we do the unity and love that we show for one another will radiate His glory for …

God is Good!

We have the power to bless as we go … blessing businesses and pursuing the prophetic word in a place of rest …

Words have power.  What we speak has power.  With our words, backed up by God’s Spirit we impact destinies, we impact nations … when we align ourselves with the purposes and intentions of God and release those purposes onto earth through our words – words of love, edification and encouragement.  If we will just speak out what we hear Him saying for people, businesses, countries, organisations we will move mountains …

Prophetic words spoken over our lives are perplexing and challenging at the best of times.  As a new Christian I did not understand nor realise that there was a co-labouring with God in not only believing a prophetic word, but in taking action to see it come true in my life … we do it together … not through striving, but from a place of rest in Him …

I have posted stories where I have felt led to pray for a business owner or a business. See this link here  for as an example that comes to mind.

I have prayed for business owners as and when prompted, declaring favour over them and their business, but not often have I had feed back from those businesses … it is often “as I go” and so I often do not go back …

Well, recently I had the privilege of being prophesied over.  The prophecy included that I had an anointing to bless businesses … I immediately thought of a friends business that I was going to bless locally, we had been talking about it for some time, but with this word of promise from God I thought “right, I need to do this for my friend and for her business … God has made a declaration over my life through this word … it is time to walk in this with intentionality …”

And so, a few days before we were due to go away for holidays I went around to my friend place of business and prayed and blessed it …

We then went away on holidays. 

While away we visited a restaurant where I had prayed for the owner and had blessed her business 2 years prior.  The prayer had been in response to a prompting from God and I had stepped out feeling nervous, but determined.  The owner was Jewish and I released and declared the blessing of Abraham over her and her business.  I suggested she research her inheritance – she was greatly touched at the time.  On this follow-up visit she said she did remember me, and that the business was doing extremely well.

I was later told by a man who drove us to the airport (whose business I also blessed) that the restaurant had been doing well … it was always busy even though other places had closed and even though it was located in a tourist holiday town that had been struggling significantly with the recent economic conditions …

With this testimony and with the prophetic word declared over my life, I have been asking other people how business has been where I have prayed in the past.

About one year ago I prayed for another business, a clothing store, at a local seaside town.  We were back in the store about a month ago and I asked the owner how business was … she too said things had been good since I had prayed … she felt it had made a difference – isn’t God Good!

Well, there is an intentionality now, and although I feel awkward at times, when I get a hint of a desire to bless a business I step out, knowing that I have Heaven behind me … it is like I did it before the prophetic word on His prompting, and now God has encouraged me further, with the prophetic word, that He was backing me up …

Is it that if we will listen to Him and what He is wanting to do that we can in turn release blessing and favour over people, businesses, countries … and then perhaps as we step out faithfully He will acknowledge that and affirm us in the most unexpected way, confirming that he is backing up our words with all of Heavens resources …?

Prophetic words are not only for the future … they are indeed for the now

It is time for the Body of Christ to pick up the words of God … believe them and release them.

God releases His intention through the prophetic.  Yes, there is timing and grace and preparation, but there are also words, I hazard a guess, that have been released over us all that we can co-labour with, that we can pick up and walk into …

The Bible is full of prophetic declarations of who we all are called to be …

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. (Jesus speaking in John 14:12 NIV 1984)

“And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Jesus speaking in Mark 16:17-18 NIV 1984)

What are we going to believe?  The prophetic word declared by Jesus about all believers … or something else?

Are you co-labouring with an intentionality to grow the promises in your life; or, are you waiting for the great anointing to just happen? 

I encourage you … step into it “for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matt 3:2 NASB 1985) … and what is more … IT”S FUN!

Water the seed of the prophetic words spoken over your life, spoken to us all in the Bible and let them grow … grow them with purpose and intentionality and you too will discover that …

God is Good.

Who is waiting for you “to bother”? Healing and roses from a loving God.

Who is waiting for you to bother … who is waiting for you to be who you are? 

I have been accused of taking too long to “tell them” about God’s Goodness … what are we waiting for?

We change atmospheres.  We change realities.  We bless as we go …

We don’t have to …

We get to …

As I have mentioned previously, my daughter has recently changed schools.  I had thought, maybe hoped, that I could perhaps “fly under the radar” for a while … but God has us all positioned for assignments as we go … where ever we go … healing, loving, encouraging, giving … we are the salt and He wants to sprinkle us through our society, where ever we may be, to release His fragrance … to make a difference.

A few weeks ago I had bought my daughter’s teacher some flowers for International Teacher’s Day.  I also wanted to thank her new teacher for taking extra care of my girl, and for going well beyond the call of duty.  I got her some pink roses, colour as chosen by my four-year-old son, who declared to me that the roses had to be dark pink “because she is beautiful!” I readily agreed.  On this occasion I had gone, but I had missed her, so I left them at reception with a girl who popped them into a vase and left them on the teacher’s desk in the hope they would last the weekend – they did.

Two weeks later, on Thursday 17th November 2011, Mrs R kept “popping up” in my mind and so I started to pray for her.  I knew that she had not been well and as I prayed I felt to purchase some roses and I “saw” a picture of red roses.

I argued on this one with God, wondering if it was just my imagination … but, feeling it was something God wanted me to do, I did it, feeling a bit of a dill since I had only just bought her some flowers only two weeks prior …

I knew that these roses had to be red since they were a gift from God, a gift to say “I love you” …

I was running late for pick up on a very hot day, and told God that he better make it possible for me to get there on time!  I rushed into the school, late, in the heat, with my four-year-old in tow and ran to the classroom … no Mrs R!

I ran to reception and spoke to the girl there … no Mrs R! … she had gone home early ill …

I lifted the flowers to show the receptionist, feeling foolish, and the receptionist smiled and said “oh no not again”.  I smiled, rapidly backing away after leaving the flowers with her, and explained I was a Christian and had felt that Mrs R was still not right and had been praying for her and had felt to get the roses to encourage her in a tough time …

The receptionist said she would immediately email Mrs R and let her know about the roses, that she would be thrilled … and confirmed that she would not be in the following day due to the illness …

Suffice to say, I was really embarrassed and was a tad miffed at God … He knew she wasn’t there … perhaps I had got the timing wrong, perhaps I had got it wrong, perhaps, perhaps, perhaps … and then I thought … well I knew that He had wanted me to do this, so regardless I had tried to be obedient … and I convinced myself that it really did not matter that I was fast on the track of being dubbed the “crazy Christian woman who keeps giving the teacher flowers when she is not ever there to receive them”.

I kept praying for Mrs R.

The following day (Friday morning) I got an email …

I just wanted to express my thanks for the beautiful roses, you are extremely thoughtful! Hopefully a few days of rest will have me feeling back to my usual healthy self.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks again!
Kind regards,

I responded saying:

You are welcome – in fact it was on a “gut feel” that you were having a pretty tough time, and as a Christian family we like to encourage people when they are having such times, especially when they are put on our hearts to pray for them as you have been for me (this reads very awkwardly and I had hoped to verbally explain) … in any case, I have been praying for you as prompted, and felt that God wanted to give you the flowers and little chocolate … a “kiss from God” so to speak to encourage you in whatever you are dealing with … but as I said, much easier to verbally explain than in writing.

I have learnt through experience that when I feel a prompting like I did yesterday it is best to act on them, rather look like a dag (authors note: “dag” is an Australian term meaning “look silly”) than miss it …

Rest well, and have a lovely weekend.

I thought “I will explain better when I see her next, but either way … I have shown my colours! “

The following Monday I went to pick up and had a really tight turn around with ballet and tennis for the two children.

I was a bit early and Mrs R came out to me to say “thank you” again … and I confirmed that I was a Christian … that the first lot of flowers had been from me to say “thank you” but that the second lot of flowers were from God to say “I love you” … and I went on to explain that I had been praying for her, I had sensed that she had been ill and had been praying for her when I felt Him tell me to get the flowers (and a silver heart chocolate) to let her know that she was “on His mind” and that “He loved her…!”

She looked at me in shock and said “was it instinct?”

I said “No, its called being prophetic, hearing from God.  We can all do it …” and I felt the Holy Spirit swirl around as I spoke … she could too and she teared up …

She said it was amazing.  She said that a colleague had dropped the roses off for her that night and that it was so strange because “it lifted Friday afternoon” (her sickness, whatever it was) and from that time on she was fine … she had put 2 and 2 together and realised the timing of the prayer, the roses, the email …

She stared at me and said “stay there, I want to talk to you some more”… and she dismissed the children …

I knew I was late … but I also knew this was “a God appointment” and so I put my own agenda on hold, and waited …

She came back to me and looked at me again … and said “I want to know more …” so I told her again … I had felt to pray for her, had got the flowers, had missed her, and felt a dill, but the flowers were from God and it was His way of letting her know that He loved her … that she was on His heart, and I confirmed that we could all hear from God … she was still teary … and said over again more than once … “that someone would bother”  She said that she had felt loved, she had felt cared for … and she had felt “so touched that someone would bother”…

Just then a child through a temper tantrum … she got flustered, and even though she came back to me the “moment” was gone for her … but I know it was a “moment” she will never forget …

Who in your world is waiting for you to bother?

Who in your world is waiting for you to stop and care?

Who in your word is waiting for you to step out and take a risk …?

There is risk in stopping for the one … a risk of being laughed at, rejected, mocked …

But then there is also the “risk” that we may just impact a life for God … they may get healed … they may feel loved … the deaf may hear … the lame may walk … the mute may speak … the dead may be raised … His love may be released … if we will just stop and try … if we will choose to step into who we are all called to be as Christians …

We must be people who are bothered … we must learn to stop for the one because …

God is Good!

I laid my hand on her arm and she felt the heat in her leg … Praise Report

My daughter had a birthday party to attend at a ten pin bowling centre last Sunday, 16th October 2011.  It was for a friend of hers, from her old school and, because she has just started at a new school, and she and I were going straight out that night, I arrived early so I could say my “hellos”, have the chats and say the “goodbyes” with plenty of time to spare … logical so I thought, but, in fact, the extra time was for a God appointment …

When I arrived, only the birthday girl’s parents were there.  I had a lovely chat to the Mum but I noted that, as she walked, she limped.  I asked her about it and found out that she had torn her left calf muscle …

I knew I was to pray, but I did not feel like kneeling at the bowling centre to lay hands on her calf.  I felt mean, and guilty for not wanting to kneel, but I just didn’t; although I was willing to, if that was what God wanted. 

I excused myself to go to the bath room, feeling a bit miffed, and, as I walked across the centre, I chatted to God about the fact that I really did not feel like getting on my knees to pray (see http://godisgoodstories.com/2011/09/21/and-he-played-footy-that-saturday-healing-of-ms-knee-winter-2009/ which is about being told to get on my knees and pray … in other words to get over myself and obey).

Well, God is funny …

God’s response to my musings was … “stop being so religious, just lay your hand on her shoulder” … which is exactly what I wanted to do in the earlier story but was told to kneel instead!

Laughing a bit to and at myself I came back from the bathroom, and told my friend that I was going to pray for her and I placed my hand on her upper arm … I invited the Holy Spirit to come, felt the anointing and as I prayed I released healing, admittedly, with some doubt, and as I did I could feel heat forming under my hand on her arm.

I asked her “can you feel that?” and she said in response, to my surprise, …”yes I can, it is all warm in my calf muscle where I hurt myself” …

Well … I did not expect that!

I laughed and told her about my chat to God and said that I knew you did not have to lay hands on the spot always, but I had not had the warmth come in another areas like this before, that I had felt it in my hand, while she felt it in her calf muscle …

Encouraged I said to her that the warmth would be the healing power of God, and I asked her to tell me when the warmth lifted.  The warmth subsided just as the other mums came to collect the children and as I said my goodbyes she said she would tell me how she got on …

The following day, we exchanged a few texts, but I am ashamed to say I had completely forgotten about her calf muscle …

In any event, true to her promise, a text came back saying:

“… and leg feels better

I saw her a few days later – she was walking limp free!

She had experienced God in a new way … and so had I

I have been reminded that God will be God. He is not religious and seems to love to mix it up.  There is no formula in what He does or how He does it …

He is not bothered in making us uncomfortable (hence having me kneel in the school playground in the earlier story), and is not impressed in us assuming that we have to do it a certain set way (hence His comment about not being religious when I thought I would have to kneel).

I believe it is rather all about us listening to Him … and conversing with Him.

In fact, I believe it is all about relationship … us knowing His voice and us learning to grow in ours … of us growing out of a place of servant hood into a place of friendship … It is about our listening and knowing His voice, our willingness to obey (to be the servant), and about our willingness to step out (to serve Him and others) … but it is also, most importantly, about our willingness to enter in and be with Him, to know Him … and for Him to know us … and it is in this place, most of all, that we will discover, together with the world that we release Him into that …

God is Good!
