"Abba Lot went to see Abba Joseph and said to him, Abba, as far as I can I say my little office, I fast a little, I pray and meditate, I live in peace and as far as I can, I purify my thoughts. What else can I do?’


Then the old man stood up and stretched his hands towards heaven. His fingers became like ten lamps of fire and he said to him, ‘If you will, you can become all flame.' "



You've always been included in Jesus. He is for you, not against you. Anyone who tells you different isn't talking about the real good news or the real Jesus. You are loved.


This is a site where I'm sharing, exploring and questioning as I come out of the cocoon of rules and regulations of religion into Love. I'm working out my beliefs as I trudge through the normal days alongside the miraculous, beautiful revelation of Christ Himself.

I hope you find encouragement here. I hope you leave with more questions for Him than you came with. I hope you get more stirred up inside to know Him for who He really is instead of coasting along on who you've been told He is. I hope you feel more alive after your read the things I post here. I hope that in the end, you believe that you are loved, and I hope that I do too.

So if you'd like, we can stretch our hands towards heaven together and become all flame.
