Basic Requirements for Spiritual Growth
Posted On 11/30/2017 16:57:42 by HomerLes

We came across many people in our wilderness journey and each one was a lesson for us. Each time we were betrayed, hated, despised or lied about gave us an opportunity to see into the heart of that person as well as ourselves. Each time we were blessed, helped, cared for and loved we also saw into the heart of the other person. God wasted nothing as He taught us about 'self' and spirit through these interactions. Eventually we learned... Read More



Waiting
Posted On 11/25/2017 18:13:22 by HomerLes

Waiting for God was the hardest thing He ever asked us to do in the wilderness. When hunger gnawed at our stomachs or freezing cold penetrated every part of our bodies the moments ticked by with excruciating slowness. When we spent hours upon hours just lying on the ground under the tarp waiting for something to happen; anything, we thought we might go mad. God did not release us then. No, He was content to let us just wait. Our ‘self’ nature hated every moment and screa... Read More



Battle Strategy: Truth
Posted On 11/22/2017 04:39:34 by HomerLes

God helps those who help themselves. Do you believe that? I hope not because it is not true. In fact, that quote was written by Benjamin Franklin and is a calling card for ‘self’. The truth is that God does NOT help those who help themselves. Why should He? The pride and self-reliance of one who helps himself has everything under control. What does he/she need God for? This lie by Benjamin Franklin is just one example of the many lies that believers accept as truth today... Read More

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
