“…’Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord…” What in the world do we really know about the power of God’s Holy Spirit? Have we really experienced it first hand? If we say we have, do we really believe that God will continue to do all He needs to do on our behalf? Will His character stand the tests of our doubts and fears in the light of our experiences? Crisis is always a testing…

Genesis 2:7 “…then the Lord God formed the man of ch. dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.” First God created our body…then He breather into it His eternal Spirit. When the two combined the soul, our memories, thoughts and emotions were created. As I grew up in church most of the teaching I received revolved around the ‘spiritual’ part of humans. we were taught repeatedly about spiritual matters. During that time I…

It wasn’t until I was introduced to Restoring Wholeness ministries back in 2010 that I came to understand much of my life I had been living in fear, fear of rejection, fear of failure, and fear of abandonment just to name a few. My only coping mechanisms for dealing with these cruel feelings were ones I was deeply ashamed of, keeping in great secret. Growing up in a home with pretty much no reverence for God and all reverence for…

Faith. What is it? Hebrews 11:1 states “…it is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.” Hebrews 11:6 says, “You can never please God without faith (trust) …” It is interesting to note that in Hebrews 3: 7-19 the Spirit of God tells us about the children of Israel who made God angry because of…

Revelation 12:10-11 “And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” I remember reading this passage and meditating on the fact…

“One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”John 9:25b –  For those of us who have lived a sexually broken lifestyle and have decided to walk away from it and embrace what we believe to be a God-honoring life…may I say personally that I have experienced something life-defining. One story in the New Testament tells about the man who was blind from birth and Jesus healed him. The religious authorities called him and his parents to…

“Change!” by Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee

Change! By Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee The Oxford American Dictionary defines change as to make or become different; to pass from one form or phase into another. Certainly, for any individual the greatest change is to become a Christian and know that your destination has been changed from hell to heaven; to become born-again. While Scripture and an abundance of secular literature provide evidence that homosexuality, though deeply ingrained and even habitually practiced, can be overcome both as…

In the middle of the muddle

Was thinking this morning about the words “muddle / wallow” and their action words “muddling / wallowing”.The dictionary definition is:  mud·dle – verb: muddling  bring into a disordered or confusing state. synonyms: confuse, mix up, jumble (up), disarrange, disorganize, disorder, disturb, mess up“you’ve muddled things up” confuse (a person or their thoughts). synonyms: bewilder, confuse, bemuse, perplex, puzzle, baffle, mystify “she became muddled”  busy oneself in a confused and ineffective way. God reminded me when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  (Acts 16:16-40)   Now I’m far from being a “Paul” but I sure know the feeling when it…

“I gave up too soon.”

“I gave up too soon.” A few years ago I was helping out with our church’s ‘feed the homeless’ outreach. When all the meals had been served a lady walked up and asked for a second helping of food. A minute before the chef took that tray away that had some of the food on it. She looked and said, ‘Oh well’, then passed by. A few minutes later the chef returned with a bit more food. I called out…
