When Grace was about two years old, she would get really upset when people would leave her. She would cry out “Mommy, please don’t leave me”, when I was just heading downstairs to pick something up. She did not seem to grasp that just because I was out of sight, did not mean that I have disappeared completely. My son, Nathan, used to be the same way when he was younger if he would wake up in the middle of the night.

Miracles or Enduring Hardships?
Daily Devotions 1/29/2009 7:45 AM
Paul is writing to the Corinthians. He is telling them that he wants them to understand his group’s hardships. The pressure was great. It was far beyond their ability to endure that they despaired even of life. In their hearts, they felt the sentence of death. Their situation was so grave they thought they would die.

Just Passing By
Daily Devotions 1/29/2009 7:45 AM
There are so many details about this story that the author did not share with us for whatever reason. What we do know, though, is that Moses was just passing by. Moses was not searching for any divine encounter with God. Moses did not go up to Mount Horeb hoping to be in God’s presence. On the contrary, after what had just happened to him in Egypt years earlier, God was probably the furthest thing from his mind and from where he wanted to be.

Heightened Security

My job at work requires me to fly quite often. So, I am a seasoned traveler and have grown very accustomed to all of the adventures of getting through airport security. I have my packing down to a science, including my liquids, so that I rarely have any difficulties going through the security preparations. There are no liquids over 4 oz. in my belongings, and I have all of the liquids contained within a Ziploc bag according to all of the FAA regulations. My shoes and coats are off before the agents even have a chance to remind me, and I get to go through the “Expert Traveler” lane in airport security.

Nothing or Everything?

The 2005 movieKingdom of Heaven tells loosely the story of the Christian Crusades’ defeat to the Arabs and the surrender of Jerusalem to the Islamic hands in the 12th century. It’s a bloody movie and twists things to paint Christianity unfavorably while favoring the Arabs so I’m not recommending it. The main character is Balian. He is a knight and the leader of the Christian Crusades to protect Jerusalem, and Saladin is the leader of the Arabs.

Shout Unto The Lord

There is something interesting about the times God has allowed us to live in and be a part of. Recently, I have gotten very excited about the opportunities the Lord has set before His bride for 2009. I think about the change that is about to come and whether you agree with it or not, change is coming. The question is what are we, His bride, going to do in the midst of it?

You Are Mine!

I told you previously my story about God speaking to me and rejuvenating me at a Christian event by telling me that I had an “is-to-come.” God has more that He wants to do to glorify His name in my life. I have more works than just writing and videotaping Jesus Lives. So of course, I started looking for another word regarding my is-to-come at this same event.

A Family Resemblance
Daily Devotions 1/20/2009 4:58 AM
If you have ever seen a picture of our children, there is little doubt that they belong to us. Our son looks just like his father, and our daughter looks just like me. It is really funny as we have a picture of Grace and me in side by side frames at the age of 2. Our son noticed them when we first put them out and asked why the one picture of our little girl looked so strange. I had to tell him that the picture he was looking at was actually a picture of me at the same age as Grace, and the reason that it looked so funny was because it was over 30 years old!!

Our Sword of the Spirit
Daily Devotions 1/19/2009 4:28 AM
As in previous devotions, I have told you that I love the medieval period in the history of our world. There is just something incredibly captivating about the stories from that period to my ever active imagination. My dreams as a little girl were of a knight in shining armor on a white horse that would rescue me from my captivity. He would be carrying a sword pointed up toward the sky and free me from my enemy. He would mount the steps to my prison high atop the castle and carry me off to live happily ever after.

Watchwomen for Israel
Daily Devotions 1/16/2009 2:01 AM
In Matthew 24, Jesus tells His disciples the signs of His return and the end of the age. In the Bible study DVD Jesus Lives Session 7, I teach you these signs. I so passionately desire for you and me to be women who know how to look at current events from God’s viewpoint. We must be alert because these signs are happening in our lifetime. We need to recognize them. Then, we need to know what to do with them.
