Dare you dream of a land where the foolish become wise and the weak are made strong? A place where the broken are invited and the simple are given a place of renown. What kind of King would choose these kinds of people to fill his ranks? What kind of person would follow such a King? For in this Kingdom a different set of rules apply. It is not a place you can see with your eyes and it is not a place you can grasp with your understanding. It is a realm beyond the human mind. It is the realm of the Spirit, and in it you will find your answers, your desires and your destiny. For when you can come to the place of seeing through the eyes of the Holy Spirit and knowing the voice of your Savior, then you too will see the warrior within yourself. |
For even as you begin to read, the heart of a warrior beats within you. Even as you begin to travel this journey with us, the Holy Spirit has called and appointed you. No matter how simple, foolish or weak, the Prince of Peace has a place for you. Maybe you have traveled some of this journey before, or maybe you are just starting out. Either way we invite you to share in the story of Tamar, the warrior who is indeed a child. And perhaps as you share in her joy, pain and journey, you will see a reflection of your own life and Christian walk.
So take my hand as I lead you to a land you might be familiar with. The land of the Spirit grounded in the soil of the Word. It is here that we meet Tamar, finishing up with dinner for one, in her little cottage on the outskirts of town.
