Definition of Wilderness
Posted On 12/02/2017 22:02:24 by HomerLes

When we started on our journey in 2007 we had a vague idea of what a wilderness season in God meant. We had read many of the Christian classics, Tozer, Guyon, John of the Cross, Thomas a Kempis, Theresa of Avila and others describing wilderness seasons. From there we learned a little about what a wilderness looks like but we never truly knew until we went through it ourselves. With our experience in this area I will attempt to define what wilderness is, and is not, for our c... Read More

Make A Decision
Posted On 11/28/2017 14:10:26 by HomerLes

I can remember it clearly as if it just happened. Boris, our much loved South African ballroom dance teacher, bellowing out across the dance floor, “MAKE A DECISION!!” There I was, my beautiful bride in my arms, doing nothing but box steps like a one legged duck trying to swim and my dance teacher had enough. Our dance teacher, of course, saw that I was stuck going in circles not knowing what to do. I had many choices of steps I could take but was paralyzed out of fear a... Read More

Balance of Sight

The wilderness, crucifixion, phase of our walk with God is never easy. If you find yourself in that dark and lonely place today, I hope to offer you some words of encouragement on your journey.

Battle Strategy: Thankfulness
Posted On 11/20/2017 16:20:06 by HomerLes

Imagine if you will a wagon with a driver being pulled by two horses. The two horses are your mind and your emotions. The driver is your will and the cart is your body. The two horses, your mind and emotions, will take your body, the cart, wherever your will, the driver, wants to go. Simple, right? It would be simple but there is one thing missing from our picture and that is the invisible spirit and ‘self’ that sit, hidden, on each side of the driver whispering instruct... Read More

The Smell of Smoke
Posted On 11/19/2017 20:23:22 by HomerLes

Many years ago Wanda and I moved to a town in Northern B.C., as I had accepted an offer to be a youth pastor. Before we had an opportunity to settle, the senior pastor scheduled a retreat at a remote cabin for all three pastors on staff. When we arrived, they made a fire and smoke filled the cabin. Without my Ventolin, which was still unfortunately packed, I had a major asthma attack. The senior pastor put me in his truck and with the other pastor sped towards a nearby hospi... Read More
