I so love the Old Testament even though we aren’t under that covenant anymore, scripture shows us that ALL scripture is profitable to us. It benefits us, it is advantageous and helps us. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, … [Read more...] about Whatever happened to the simplicity of the gospel?

It is easy to say, “I trust God” until that moment when life’s circumstances are out of your control. It is in those inevitable times (that we all want to avoid) that our trust is challenged. I remember many times in our younger years, when first doing missions work, where money had run out and we had four kids to feed, bills to pay and could not work to earn money in the … [Read more...] about Trusting In the Unseen Hand of God

Three years ago, I started getting serious about studying history and was surprised to learn that the definitions of left and right throughout history and throughout the world are the opposite of what is commonly used in the United States today. This might not sound like a big deal, but it is because many of us in the United States have become so locked into our left vs right … [Read more...] about How the pursuit of liberty redefined everything I once believed.
Last night I had the most unusual dream that felt more like an encounter than a dream. In this dream, I was spending time with the Lord and as I did he drew my attention to a place deep in my stomach where there was some anxiety that I had learned to live with (and even ignore). As He drew my attention to it, He began to take me into that very place. As I went there, I could … [Read more...] about Dream: Jesus Is Swaddling Soul Wounds

OH MY HEART! For Australia to have such public display of worship warfare! The anointing on the drummer made me feel like I wanted to come out of my skin!

He said, "In this hour, your weapons of war will be your … [Read more...] about “In this hour, your weapons of war will be your melody”!

Hi all, I shared briefly last week about what I thought of myself after my dad left our family. As the oldest of 4 children, and being big for my age, my mom later apologized for putting so much on me.

For me as an 11 year old, having mom and dad divorce (which was not common … [Read more...] about New Testament Realities – Part 2 of 3, What Changed My Life

As I was unpacking the last of our boxes in our new home, I came across the Bible that I used when I was in my twenties. In those days, my husband and I were going through years of infertility and it was a deep pain in my heart because we longed to have children. I would pray and stand on the Word of God, waiting eagerly for the promise to be fulfilled. Today, as I opened … [Read more...] about There are many who will read this that are eagerly holding onto “hope unseen”.
When I lost so many people who I thought loved me, it forced me to go to a place I’d never gone before. I’m not sure how to judge how well I did. My life turned dark and I got so down I wanted to die. I wasn’t able to “pray my way out” or decree what I thought should happen or tell God what to do. I didn’t feel all close to God in the secret place. I felt forsaken and forgotten … [Read more...] about He’s God and that’s enough.
