Gianna’s Story: An abortion survivor

30 Sep

Gianna is amazing woman with an phenomenal story of hope, courage and forgiveness. I am pro-life but she is the face of the pro-life movement. You hear what a woman is going through what about these innocent babies. She was given saline to abort her at 7 1/2 mos of her mother’s pregnancy but surprise she survived.

Jesus is at work!

4 May

My oldest daughter, age 7, was telling my younger daughter, age 3, about how Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead so that we could go to Heaven.

My youngest daughter said, “Yeah, Jesus is at wook wite nao (at work right now).”

Oldest daughter corrects: “no, He’s in Heaven.”

I corrected her, saying, “well baby, technically, Jesus is at work right now.”

Romans 8:

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Smart theology from a three-year-old.

Easter

2 Apr

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Let us not forget what Easter is REALLY all about! Blessings to everyone during this BEAUTIFUL Easter weekend.

My friend wrote this and I loved it!

Thank you Jesus… you are!

Our church dance team performed a dance to this song this morning. It really touched me. I hope it encourages you and gives you hope the way it did for me and so many others this morning!

Healer By Hillsong

I heard this song yesterday and I have been singing it all day. It is so true that Jesus is all we need no matter what kind of healing you need in your life: If you need physical, emotional, financial, family restoration, or spiritual healing. Jesus is there for you and loves you so very much!

Peace

9 Apr

Easter Sunday is coming up in a few days. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ. He died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the third day. I think this gives me such peace and joy to know that the God I worship and pray to is alive. He is real.

I also believe Jesus still heals and the stripes he bore on his back are representation of that healing. I heard from a friend today that her MRI came back negative which is awesome. Her dizziness she was experiencing is gone. She is just waiting on the test from the mass on her neck. She is filled with peace and hope and all of this other good news continues that hope that everything will be ok. This was great news and I felt it appropriate to write about. We hear all these bad things all the time with the economy and life that I wanted to share something uplifting and positive.

Happy Easter and Passover!

Remnant III: Keeping a Pure Heart

22 Jan

The Remnant III: Keeping a Pure Heart
I love talking about having a pure heart. The heart is such a fascinating subject. In the Bible, the heart is described as our inward man – the inside part of us that is the real us – our spirit. It is the hidden part of us where our deepest beliefs reside. It is through our heart that we connect with God, which in turn leads to answered prayers. The prevailing tone of the words we speak flows directly from our hearts. Moreover, the way we believe in our hearts is so important that our salvation depends on it. Finally, God favors those whose hearts are knit with His. Clearly, the state of our heart is very important.

Of all the people in the Bible, David was the only one about whom God said he was a man after God’s own heart. What a statement – especially in the light of David’s many failures! That gives me hope. If David can be a man after God’s own heart, then so can I; so can all of us. And, that’s what I want, don’t you? So what was it about David that made him a man after God’s heart? What are the characteristics of a “heart after God”? Well, in short, a heart after God’s own heart is submitted, repentant and humble. These three characteristics work together to produce a pure heart. And that is what David had that attracted God’s attention and favor.

Too many of us have gotten to the place where our hearts are cold, hardened, impure and unsurrendered to God. We have the choice to either continue along this path and face the consequences of not being a part of The Remnant. Or, we can surrender our will, seek to have a heart after God’s own heart and experience the favor and blessing that God pours out on The Remnant.

As we go forward into this year, I encourage you to find those places in your heart that are not repentant, submitted or humble before God. Then repent, asking God to help you to have a heart after His own heart – a pure heart. He will delight to honor your request and welcome you in as a part of The Remnant!
