Family trouble is heartbreaking enough, but when I was facing another visit from them, Father showed me a different way to pray. It involved understanding that I have a kingdom. He’s shown me this scenario several times now. Continue reading WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH FAMILY TROUBLE?
I sat by the river of heaven today and dangled my feet in the water -while wearing my new shoes. Yep, I got some new shoes, and no, the water doesn’t damage them. And they’re gorgeous.
At first, I thought they were burgundy silk, but as they fit themselves to my feet, they came alive and morphed into magenta and then deep purple, and back again, depending on which way I turned. They massaged and caressed my feet as though I had laid them in a bed full of squirming kittens. Continue reading DANGLING MY FEET IN THE RIVER OF HEAVEN
One of my neighbors shared with me, that this town, community, and the area is filled with evil, hateful, disgusting people and it’s a horrible place to live. I was shocked, like a deer in the headlights, but she calmly maintained that everything she felt was the only truth.
I said that I was living the polar opposite and that I love this place and everyone here. Continue reading EATING THE FRUIT OF OUR WORDS
I dreamt that I accidentally killed my precious doggies within a 24 hour period, by not feeding them. Then heartbroken, I cried out to God for forgiveness.
The awful pain woke me and I began the inward searching for the horrible flaw I could blame. Of course, there were plenty of places to target. Continue reading FINDING SIN INSIDE OURSELVES
It’s true there are Christians who behave like bullies. Some bullies are not aware they are bullying. Other bullies are taught to be bullies by their churches and bible schools under the guise of debate.
One Christian brother told me that he learned debate techniques in a School of Ministry which practiced aggressively, combative techniques. “I sliced and diced with my tongue, winning all but one of those debates” he told me. Continue reading CHRISTIAN BULLIES ARE AMONG US
I was thinking about fervent, effectual prayers. You know, the kind we all want. The kind that “avails much”. The kind that James 5:16 talks about.
Have you ever paid close attention to your prayers to see which ones were availing much, and which ones seemed to bounce off the ceiling? I’m sure you have some that availed much. Are there similarities in them? After all, what is the point of prayers that avail nothing? Continue reading The Contents of My Effectual Prayers That Avail Much
I took the opportunity to visit with a cop for a while the other day. His name and other details will be kept confidential, but his story should be heard.
He was gentle, and kind although his voice was subdued with sadness, or hopelessness. I didn’t know which. He dreamt of being a cop as a child, and that dream solidified as a young adult when he witnessed an officer help a young couple calmly through the angry emotions of an ending relationship. The officer disarmed their need for retaliation, and planted a seed in the heart of the young man to help others in chaos, to be a peacemaker. Continue reading Viewpoints: from a Police Officer
(an excerpt from the book)
Are there people who simply can’t see Father, can’t access their Identity, and can’t hear His voice?
I want to reply with a solid “no” and say that it’s not because they can’t … it’s because they can’t right now.
That might not sound very compassionate of me. I understand their struggle, I’ve been there, but I don’t accept the barrier because as I found, there is actually nothing there. It’s a mirage produced by misunderstanding because nothing can separate us from God. He said that. Continue reading ACHIEVING IDENTITY
Once again, this topic is so important that I’m not going to spend a lot of time prepping you. Basically, the same approach we used to pray for the police officers is the approach we use for the other guys.
Again, I know you’re frustrated by the shootings that keep happening. It’s time to stop responding to evil the same way, again and again. It’s not working. It’s time to step into The Kingdom and do this Father’s way. Continue reading HOW TO PRAY FOR SHOOTERS AND TERRORISTS
This topic is so important that I’m not going to spend a lot of time prepping you. I’m going to tell you what just happened, what Father told me, and then I’m going to pray for you.
I know you’re frustrated because these shootings keep happening. It’s time to stop responding to evil the same way, again and again. It’s not working. It’s time to step into The Kingdom and do this Father’s way. Continue reading HOW TO PRAY FOR POLICE OFFICERS
