Written in my heart playing church (2)

Written In My Heart: Playing Church (#2) At the time I married, I informed my husband-to-be, who had been attending church with me often, I believed in Jesus and wanted to be active in church after we married. He agreed this would be okay. After our wedding, we made our home in the small town where Bill worked for the Green Giant Co. He grew up on a farm near Le Sueur, Minnesota. I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. I made a promise, to God or at least in my mind, to go to church and raise our children as church goers. I made sure to join a church of the same Synod. We have three children. They were raised going to Sunday School and each of them was confirmed. In this church, I attended regularly and served as a Sunday School teacher, as Sunday School superintendent and even for a period of......
The healing power in a hug

This past weekend my husband and I attended an event at our church called "Freedom Encounter". On Saturday, after listening to a teaching on forgiving the wounds of inflicted by parents, we made our way up to the front along with other members of the prayer team to stand in as proxy for those who needed to give their parents a hug. I have to tell you, it was a very emotional experience as a number of people came forward to lay down their hurts so that they could truly forgive. At one point, a man, probably not much older than our own son, approached us. The moment he touched us, he began to sob uncontrollably clinging to the two of us and we in turn, held him tightly as well. We had been told to allow the hugger to release the hug, rather than break it ourselves and that is......

This is a time of marching forward into the purposes of God for this month of March is the time and season of new things coming forth. This is the time of a fresh outpouring of Gods comfort and joy as the bride readies herself for the coming. This is the month of miracles working for the glory of God to fall on the Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Evangelists and Pastors. For in the days to come we must be ready to march into the inheritance that he been prepared for us. This is the time of new visions, dreams and prophetic writings and blogs. This is a time of regeneration and redemption; a time for the Bride of Christ to once more ascend into the calling that we have been called to. This is a month of movement forward as we cross the barriers that have been erected against the breath of......
Fell and hurt my back

I have not yet written the weekly ”Written In My Heart” testimony that was promised. On Monday, March 20, 2017, the first day of Spring, I fell and injured my back. After my usual Monday morning session of water-walking at our local community center, as I was walking into the locker room, I apparently stepped into a patch of water. Within a second, I was flat on my back on the floor. It was pretty awful. But, I did not hit my head, nor break any bones. I called for my husband to come and I agreed to have an ambulance take me to emergency at our local hospital. I was released after several hours. I praised and thanked God for His protection as the accident results could have been so much worse. This week has been pretty tough though. I am experiencing much pain and discomfort.......
Jonah as a sign of the last days
John Knox+

I believe that the Lord is speaking powerfully across all nations, races and groups as never before. I sense in my spirit that there is increased activity in the heavens that will ultimately fall onto the earth. I also sense that the enemy is increasing his anger, hatred and violence, more so among the younger generation. There is coming a clash of the swords that will impact across the nations leaving no person untouched. We can see this upheaval in activity and changes in all levels of our society including, the USA, Briton, Europe, China to name a few nations. As we listen or view the news we can see earthquake cracks appearing in the politics of a number of nations that has many financial experts on tender hooks. It is into this heavenly activity orchestrated by the Lord of Hosts that......
Take to the streets

Hundreds of homes are going up just three miles south of me. Of course businesses are following as well. The traffic south of my church went from being almost non-existent to constantly busy over the course of a year. I was down that way just the other day buying groceries at the grocery store that opened last fall and could not help but notice the marked change in traffic that occurs at the intersection near my church. Truthfully, I was glad I had thought about urban sprawl when we were looking to buy a home in the area ten years ago. At the time I had commented that with a lake, a large hilly and wooded county regional park with a few lakes scattered through it and a huge tract of land owned by the state which contains not only a zoo but an environmental learning center, there was......

I did not write this. This letter has been circulating for some time around widow/er hangouts. I wrote some blogs with similar sentiments, but this person put most of "our" sentiments together quite well. If you know anyone who has lost their soulmate, The Love of Their Life, consider this a letter from them. If you consider me a friend, consider this a letter from me to you with love. To My Friend I have lost the one I love, the one I cherish. My lover, my best friend, my whole life. Either you have stumbled across this because you want to find out how to help me, or I have given this to you. How I am Feeling I am numb. I am in shock. I am emotionally exhausted. I am in pain. A horrible, gut-wrenching, intense, unimaginable, and indescribable pain. My mind is totally......
A reason for richard

Recently I learned a valuable lesson from my little one. A lesson to slow down, to appreciate the small things, and most importantly a lesson in God's Grace. This weekend we made a big transition, we moved our 2-year-old daughter from a crib to a “big girl bed”. I think the transition was much more emotional for me than for your little peanut. This transition brought to mind a poem I had read a few years back, the author, though unknown, surely pulled some heart strings with this one: The Last Time From the moment you hold your baby in your arms, you will never be the same. You might long for the person you were before, When you have freedom and time, And nothing in particular to worry about. You will know tiredness like you never knew it before, And days will run into......
The rise of satan

A man with an experience is not at the mercy of the man with an argument. Like a cosmic boom the fireworks began! Seemingly, out of nowhere, thoughts pommeled my mind. The rise of Satan. Jesus Christ never walked the earth. You have been mesmerized. It was group hypnosis, a hoax. Test it. Relinquish this supposed prayer language. If this new language is of God, He will give it back to you. Baptized a warrior became my disclaimer. I was a marked woman from the beginning in 1975. I did not choose this disposition; it was chosen for me. My journey’s theme would remain constant, in this regard, through the many years ahead. In the book War on the Saints this is expressed: “The Bible throws much light upon the Satanic powers, which cannot fail to be discerned by all who search......
The road is out there somewhere!
John B. Abela+

Sometimes it can be hard to see where the road is. You are driving down the road and it starts to rain - not just any rain, but really really raining kind of rain. The kind of rain where all you want to do is get off the road and stop. Unfortunately, you know that there are about a bazillion other people on the road, and they are either going to keep going as fast as they were - probably the case - or stop right in the middle of the road - which will probably result in the person behind them not slowing down crashing into the back of them. But which decision do you make? Do you slow down just a little bit, do you make a complete stop and hope everybody else does too, or do you just keep moving forward and hope beyond hope that nobody in front of you has stopped in the middle of the road.......
