the miracle of love and restoration

our new home

when we were expelled from the garden of eden, we lost nearly everything. adam and eve were stripped of their sense of belonging, they became foreigners without a place to call home, they lost their identities, their sense of security.


most importantly, we are told, something inside of them died. and from this death, they lost their strength. then humility, as they tried desperately to compensate. the casualties continued with their holiness and goodness; guilt stripped down their souls, and they tried to quench the thirst by conforming their uniqueness to idols.

love times seven

as heart breaking as all that is, it can’t ever compare to what happens next. god takes bad things and makes it mind-blowing awesome and breath-taking beautiful. it’s mysterious and quiet, gentle and direct. it feels like He is mocking evil; but i don’t think that’s it. “God is good” is a cliche we can repeat forever and ever…


God came humbly, in a weak and fragile body. as the new Adam, He shattered the powers of this world. light tore apart the body of sin. he bested the dragons; the prince of this world was crushed by His strength. unrelenting love elevated the broken souls of mankind. men and women are free to take back their original identities and purpose. we have a home; we belong. nothing can ever change that, now.

things that are real

Some things are real and others are not. Light is real and darkness is merely the absence of light. marble forest is about things that are real: strength and humility, light and soul, creative and unique, and love. Members can post a variety of media into these and other categories they create.


everyone is creative. there is no exception. people are, in their very essence, creators. among the foundations of what makes us human is the inspiration and ability to make new things from our world and our lives.


humility was an unending web built into every facet of creation. and at the center of it, mankind was humble before God, and the creator of galaxies chose to walk on earth with people.


god’s goodness and holiness is the real light to the world–that which sustains everything. the sun is a parable. and light itself, in all its magnificence and mystery is an expression.


the human creation is a grand mystery worthy of celebration. our hearts and minds are fearfully and wonderfully created. there’s more to us than we understand. psychology may not even penetrate the surface of the human soul.


everywhere you look in creation you see unimaginable, intangible power and strength. from the submicroscopic to the unending breadth of the celestial, we are “brought” repeatedly to awe and wonder.


everyone and everything is unique. that’s just the way it is. Each facet of creation is particularly special, remarkable, and unusual. apparently, that’s just how God would have it.

the beautiful feet of a strong servant

Humility is a prerequisite for true strength. Likewise, strength is essential for humility. There’s nothing contradictory about a strong servant or a humble leader. In fact, they are, perhaps by design, inseparable. These two qualities in tandem have been an especially rare experience for me personally, as well as in others.
