The Radiance of God’s Glory through His Sons

by Wes Bridel on February 18, 2013

in Calling

Yesterday, I sat on my couch and was becoming more and more uncomfortable as the heat of the sun came in the window/door.  One side of our home is all glass doors going out onto a patio.  For years, the view out was into a small forest.  However, they’ve recently torn all that down and [...]

Charles Newbold books for $1

by Wes Bridel on December 26, 2012

in Calling, Random Musings

The Crucified Ones by Charles Newbold is the best book I’ve read describing (in an incredibly succinct way…it’s short, but very dense) what is happening as the Kingdom of God advances and where believers stand in it.  It was amazing to read much of what the Lord had taught me laid out so precisely.  And [...]

The Master Builder
(Note: This parable was passed on to me by my friend Larry. I don’t know who he heard it from, but thought it was a wonderful truth and wanted to share it here.)

by Wes Bridel on January 25, 2012

in Calling

On Monday, we shared an ancient parable out of China that probably pre-dates the Kingdom of God’s advancement into that land (as goes on in amazing ways today).  But it’s an amazing parable that has often come to mind when sharing with others that teaches an important lesson. Today, we’ll share a few thoughts on [...]

There was an old & wise shepherd who lived in the north of China.
One day, the best of his few horses ran away. His neighbors came by and tried to console him. He replied, “Who knows this might be a blessing?”
About a month later, his horse came back with a flock of wilder horses.   His [...]

by Wes Bridel on May 13, 2010

in Calling

As we conclude our series on the image and likeness of God, it’s noteworthy to point out that this is a strange time.  You have me and others the Lord has put in this position out there pleading for people to prepare themselves because a new season is around the corner.  In fact, it has [...]

The Inner Work: Part 2

by Wes Bridel on May 11, 2010

in Calling

As we wrap up our last couple of posts from our series on God’s image and likeness, I’m going to give some practical ideas here on how to connect with God.  I’m hesitant to do this because what’s most important is what is unseen.  There are not magical practices that if you simply follow these [...]

The Inner Work: Part 1

in Calling

We continue our discussion of us being made in God’s image and likeness. It’s amazing that God can tell us what He’s going to do around the world and then we can watch and see it happen.  It’s incredibly humbling and awe inspiring to be able to hear God’s voice telling you in advance of [...]

“The LORD reigns,
let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim,

Let’s look at a few of the past moves of God…
