DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Soak, Scrub, Rinse, and Repeat

COME:
Titus 2:15
15 These things speak , and exhort , and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.


Titus 3:4-6
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared , 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done , but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through JesusChrist our Saviour;


Zechariah 4:6
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying , This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel,saying , Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

HEAR:
We are not made new by our works or trying harder. We will only come up against a wall each time we try a little harder. Our righteousness couldn't save us and it won't keep us holy either. We are saved by Mercy and Grace. We must learn not only to NOT let others despise us, we must learn not to despise ourselves. When we sin, fail, miss the mark, or otherwise fail to live up to this image we have on the inside of our perfect self that we are striving to attain to be in God... We must not allow ourselves to despise who we are now because it fails to live up to who we want to be. This causes a cycle which then has us thinking, imagining, and saying that we always fail and never succeed. This then causes us to sow and then reap the one we do not want to be. It is not by our might or power that we live for God but by God's Holy Spirit.

Nothing we "DO" no "Plan of action" will make us any holier or better people than we already are. Only allowing the Holy Spirit to saturate us through his Word and Presence will wash us and regenerate us. This process takes time, like something that has been dirty for a long time, soaking in cleaning solution, being scrubbed and then soaking some more. Our spirit is regenerated but the Soul and Body need renewing until that day we are re-created with new bodies. My wife found these sea shells that were all crusty with lake residue as all sea shells are. She soaked them in bleach to make sure they were clean. In the end not only did the surface scum come off but also the extra hard parts started to come off with a little scrubbing revealing the clean, soft, pearly white inside. It was beautiful. They more she soaked, scubed, rinsed, and repeated this the more amazingness was revealed. We must learn not to work harder or try harder but to simply soak, scrub, rinse, and repeat daily if we want to be conformed to the Image of Jesus. 

DO:
Each day, I must come to the Word and Prayer. Not to try to learn something new or get some grand revelation trying to get a little bit more knowledge that will put me over or get an A on the test... but to SOAK in the presence of God through active dialogue in prayer and SCRUB with the word of God in the mind. RINSE through praise and worship. REPEAT daily!


My Prayer:
Father, I thank you for this amazing morning. The rain outside washing away the heat of the summer. The time off to work on other things and meditate in your Word. The new vision and life you've put into me. I want to always remember and understand that all I need to DO is to SOAK, SCRUB, RINSE, and REPEAT... Thank you!

Darrell's Reading List


Here are some books I've been reading lately:
  • Hacker: The Outlaw Chronicles (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). The story of a young Hacker girl, who went on a wild adventure into the supernatural realm beyond trying to save her mom, but saved her self too in the process.
  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

How to cultivate Joy... Olivier's Response

Recently I've been praying about direction in my life. I feel as though the wheels are spinning in the mud and I'm not gaining any traction or going anywhere. Among other things the Lord has started moving me toward praying about studying redemption. I've spent so many years studying the finer points of prosperity, healing, etc... somehow I lost the message of sin, the cross, redemption. Redemption, however, includes all those other things like prosperity, healing, peace, joy, etc...

So now with a new perspective, years later, I need to start a study of redemption from Genesis to Revelation all over again. Come to find out that my friend Steve Wilson has been teaching a class on Redemption at EMIC all the Wednesdays services of most of March and April 2013. As I work on Wed nights with the Youth Group I miss adult service those days. I'm downloading those now to start listening as I begin my own study of redemption.

The Lord moved me last night to re-watch the last 30 mi…

So today was nice?

I woke up late with no where to go, and nothing to do. I think some people call that sleeping in on a Saturday.
My head didn't hurt as much as it usually does. So that was nice.

By about 3pm ish, I actually left the house for a while. Went to Walmart, Sonic, Wendy's and In-n-Out.

It was really nice outside. Cool enough not to feel hot, but warm enough for a t-shirt, breeze outside, 70's?


I did not feel especially down, or moody.


I did the dishes. Several days worth. That took an hour and half. But my wife baked angel food cake, and macerated strawberries for strawberry shortcake. So have two sinks full of dishes again tomorrow, but the desert was lovely.

Other than the errand, and doing dishes, we basically watched Gilmore Girl's re-runs all day. I forgot how much I REALLY enjoyed that show. The wry wit, and comic timing are impeccable, it's so hard to find great writing, directing, and acting like that. Punchy.





Yet... I left the day with the usual empty feeling.
