voice of the day

I spoke last night at Kairos – about finding perspective in difficult times. I read from James 1, and shared this quote by my friend 🙂 Dallas Willard. It seemed to really resonate with people, as multiple people asked for the quote. So here it is…

“First we must accept the circumstances we constantly find ourselves in as the place of God’s kingdom and blessing. God has yet to bless anyone except where they actually are, and if we faithlessly discard situation after situation, moment after moment, as not being “right,” we will simply have no place to receive his kingdom into our life. For those situations and moments are our life.” (The Divine Conspiracy p. 348)
