May you hear your call to compassion and social justice.

(Listen to my song “Mercy Reigns” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 89:21

“I have chosen David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him.”


David became a great king.

He had a compassionate heart to care for God’s people.

But…he also had some rather dark flaws.

He committed adultery and murder.

Certainly God knew that David had weaknesses in his character.

But God never turned away from David when David turned away from God.

God kept loving him…and David returned again and again.

What is your character flaw?

What have you done to turn away from God?

Whatever it is…know this:

God has not turned away from you and continues to love you.

As a matter of fact, the place of your flaw or wound will become the very place where you will experience God’s healing love and forgiveness.

The wound will become a “sacred wound” because it will be the very place that will lead to your transformation and ability to reach out and become a “wounded healer” to others.

You are also God’s chosen servant.

By Grace you are set free!
