For the sting of guilt, He’s got the cure

March 30, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It was a single verse. In the quiet of this day in early spring, I’m skimming along on my way to a different reference when my eyes graze it. “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” It’s John, apostle […]

The cross that fits me, it’s brought life

March 28, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It was two years ago at Easter time that we gently installed him in The Place That Could Help, and we drove away. On a gorgeous, sun-splashed Easter Sunday, we left flesh and blood and drove home ‘neath Papa’s sky. It was the culmination of a long, hard, pain-wracked flight to the Far Country by […]

The cross applied brings life

March 23, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It was during a desert season, a time of trial by fire, that this message came. Oddly, beautifully, it happened just as Easter approached, and I embraced it with all of my heart. I still do, the cross is still applied, and I’m in a new, amazing place of victory and peace that I’ve not […]

What suffering’s good for

March 18, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Toward the end of the sermon, there it came. Truth and hope, shining clear, shining straight in the middle of a hard, hard lesson. “Embracing Suffering.” That’s what he’d called it, and I knew what he meant ’cause I’d walked it. My friend, April (a spiritual mother), had said it like this:  “Embrace the season […]

“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” – Jesus “It was a year ago today,” she says. “So I’m a year out now.” I’m talking to my aunt. One year ago, she sustained […]

When “PASSPORT” really means miracles

March 11, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I glance out the window. Surely, oh surely… Eager, I race across the grass. Papa’s bright, golden sun is lighting the world. A fresh breeze blows, and birds sing praise high in the trees on The Three. I pop the lid down, reach inside–and there it is. In the heart of my home, our kitchen, […]

‘Slow and gradual’ brings transformation, too

March 9, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I’d not planned on speaking today. Wednesday is my heaviest workday of the week, but in between reports, I’m thinkin’ on transformation and on how, exactly, it comes. And I recall a conversation at the coffee shop on Friday last… I’m sitting at my high, round table, savoring salted caramel brewed just for me, French […]

Redeemed from, redeemed to, pimp’s paid

March 7, 2016 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

The lights go down. On the screen at the front of the room, a photo appears. Against a lovely brick backdrop, six women dressed in colorful robes stand, shoulder to shoulder. Their dark-skinned faces seem lit from within as if by candles, and in their smiles, I see joy, and peace… On a recent winter […]

Partnering with Him in bringing Heaven to earth is a human’s high calling and sweet spot. “Today, I’m working on the next installment of […]
