All creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God. It is the one thing that will unequivocally change the way life on earth functions and display the qualities we so deeply desire.
No matter how godly this nation can become, it will never be The Kingdom of God on earth. It will never be God’s expression of Himself on earth. And our President can never lead us into that fullness.
Only we can do that by individually pursuing The Kingdom and our Continue reading ARE WE PRACTICING THE KINGDOM ON EARTH?
On the way home from work the other night, I had an intense encounter with hope and fear.
This trial and testing had begun with a horrible sound around my back right tire just as I was getting to work. Nervously, I asked one of the guys to take a look but he saw nothing of concern. So I said, “Well then I’m going to assume it was a build-up of slushy snow in the wheel-well that iced up and was clunking around in there.”
So for the evening, fear lurked just over my head, periodically Continue reading HOPE AND FEAR, or “DO IT AFRAID”
Hunny had a dream in which God wore a plaid shirt and looked like Andy Griffith. It was an oddball answer to a couple days of illness. And I want to share it with you because I enjoy the way Father performs uniquely in our life.
Tremendous pain coaxed him to call me home from work but my Hunny wouldn’t concede because he’s a tough guy. So upon my arrival, we began the process: vitamins, herbs, and prayer. I tried to visualize him well, but it was a weak vision at best. Continue reading GOD WEARS A PLAID SHIRT
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?
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
I was taught that Curiosity was a bad thing and that I should never play with it. The teaching was backed up by plenty of scripture, but I sure couldn’t find anything to support it now.
This morning the snow falling on the cliffs in the distance curiously looked like fog as I drank my coffee and watched through the window. I had woken with the question, “Father, why did the Pharisees chose to be Pharisees”? Continue reading IS CURIOSITY GOOD?
My parents unwittingly took me to find terror for the first time in my two-year-old life. I screamed, I clawed at Daddy begging him not to take me and he did what most Daddy’s would do. He slowed his pace and talked to me. He held me in his arms and reassured me. He coaxed me forward and reasoned with my fears. Gradually, bit by bit he got me down to the shores of Lake Erie. Continue reading WHAT HAS TERROR DONE?
I stood in the shower seething with anger and hatred almost as though it had jumped on me when I read the blog article by one of my friends, Praying Medic, “Learning to Love Your Abuser“.
He had described with much humility, how he felt anger and hatred sometimes toward abusive people, and that we need to learn to love them because it is their only cure. Continue reading ANGER & HATRED OVERFLOW
