Grace

“The message of grace begins with a single statement: God loves you. This is the foundation of grace. Any teacher who uses the word “grace” apart from love doesn’t understand grace. Any person who seeks grace without knowing God’s love will not find it. It all begins with love.”

Narcissism

“As I write about living in grace, I find myself thinking that the activities of those who are under grace are the very things the narcissists lack. Rest in the Lord. Trust in His love. Accept that you are accepted. The narcissist suffers and hurts others because he doesn’t do these things. He is truly stuck under the law—a law he has accepted and believes is still for him and the rest of us. The freedom we enjoy is an affront to the narcissist.”

Walk with Me

“The Christian life is not a burden to be carried or a goal for which we strive, but a walk to enjoy with the Lord who loves us. His goal is that we would know Him and live in peaceful relationship with Him. That relationship is a matter of the heart…” (From the back cover)

There’s Grace for your Heart!

“The mind has questions. The body has struggles. But it’s the heart that needs a Person.”

Seeking answers for your heart in right doctrine or sacrificial obedience may leave you wishing for something more. Learn here of a relationship that makes a difference. The church has not done well in connecting believers with the Lord who loves them. Our ministry is to proclaim Jesus as God’s grace for your heart!

But what does narcissism have to do with grace? Fair question—not much! Except that those who have suffered in narcissistic relationships need to know there is Someone who loves them. And that narcissism represents the acme of life without grace. And that the legalistic church draws narcissists and cultivates manipulative relationships. Grace is the antidote to narcissistic abuse and the balm that heals the hurting.

Spend some time here. Read as much and as often as you wish. Along the way, open your heart to a message of encouragement.

What is there to read here?

From poetry to blog posts to essays to short books, writings here will focus on two primary topics: grace and narcissism. Although the two can be connected, they are separate here because this ministry over the years has had this double-pronged thrust. A third focus has also developed for pastors, church leaders, and Christian workers. Our prayer is that you will find encouragement here.
