Prayer: “Lord, Set Us Free”

Violence and chaos are trying to rule our cities and highways. People are living in fear. The media is lying to us. So too our films from Hollywood. Our bodies are addicted to all manner of evil; illicit sexual practices, fantasies out of control, porn, gambling, etc. Our hearts are filled with deep-seated anger, bitterness, hatred, rage, and rebellion, often leading to self-destructive impulses. A sense of rejection, guilt, poor self-esteem, unworthiness, and shame. Our churches are filled with believers who are hurting through the activity of evil spirits. Often areas of their lives are in...

Dreams Provide Us Divine Counsel

Early in our spiritual journey my husband, Jerry, and I discovered that the dream is not merely a meaningless response to sense stimuli during sleep. From a biblical standpoint, the dream presents a way for God to speak directly to His people while they slumber in their beds. One type of message God uses the dream for is to give us divine counsel. According to Psalms 16:7, we can expect to receive wise counsel, even during the wee hours when our brain is not conscious. During sleep the mind may be turned off, but the spirit is still active, listening as the Creator offers us guidance and...

Childhood Longings

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in Spiritual Journey | 0 comments

In Muskegon, MI with my sister & her husband who live in the home I grew up in. As I sit in my childhood bedroom, memories come flooding in. Down the road is the home of my Child Evangelism teacher. She’s long gone, but her flannel graph Bible stories seeded my young heart with spiritual hunger. I remember saying, “Some day I want to know a God like the people in her stories did.” Now at 77 yrs., I ask myself: Did the longings of my youth get fulfilled? Have I encountered a living God of power who loves me? Do I know His voice? Does He answer my prayers? Does He know my...
