Crooked Places Straight began as a Blog ministry in 2013.
As I began to share what the Lord was showing and teaching me it became known to me the words were ministering to others. This was a great encouragement to me, since I could not physically be in the mission field, I could still be used by God through my writing. Yet, my heart was still longing to “Go!” and share Him outside of my walls.
We are living in a time where people are searching for answers, yet they are seeking in the wrong places. Everywhere we look we see the signs of the times and I believe His return is coming very soon and we are to be ready. But, love doesn’t stop there, it is not for us to keep to ourselves, we are to share love with a dying world. Love has a name and His name is Jesus.
Now more than ever, our generation is under attack. The cloak of darkness is falling and His light must shine brightly through His people. There are souls stumbling around crying out, “Does anyone see me? Does anyone care?” The Father is saying, “I see you. I care.”
The Lord is still saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” (Isaiah 6:8) Jesus says to His disciples, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38) Jesus came so that the world may be saved through Him. (John 3:16-17) Before we were even born He knew us (Jeremiah 1:5), yet there are so many who do not know who they are, they do not know their true identity because they do not know Him.
This is why Crooked Places Straight exists; to go out and to preach the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to reach those who have yet to be reached, to show them there is a more excellent way, to be His hands and feet, to reach, teach, train, and release, to make disciples, and to take back territory.
To the young pregnant woman who is scared, we say Jesus sees and He cares.
To the homeless, we say Jesus has not forgotten you.
To the fatherless child, we say He has not left you as an orphan.
To the man who is struggling just to survive, we say with Him all things are possible.
To the one bound to addictions, we say Jesus came to free you.
To the one hiding in shame and regret, we say His forgiveness and love is greater.
We carry the message of hope in His redeeming love.
I will go before you
And make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze
And cut the bars of iron.
I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the Lord,
Who call you by your name,
Am the God of Israel. Isaiah 45:2-3
