This was shared by permission of the author. JESUS AND JANE THE GOOD LESBIAN Written by Matthew Anderson, D.Min. I know my title is provocative so please take a moment to read further. I hope what I have to say will be both inspiring and healing. I am convinced that it is also Biblical and very consistent with the message of my Master Jesus. I am an evangelical Christian and a minister and I am deeply troubled by the recent outrageous comments by Pastor Charles Worley (see the news) that he would like to put “all homosexuals and lesbians behind an electrified fence and let them die out”. His comments are laden with hate and violence and are in no way reflective of the teachings or life of Jesus. He is not a true and good representative of the Body of Christ in the world or of......

I am reading a book called The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven by Kevin Malarkey. It is the true account of a father and son, who on the way home from church, was in a car accident and the son, Alex, received life threatening injuries. It is sought of like Heaven is for Real but this book focuses more on what went on in the lives of the people surrounding Alex than what heaven is like. It also talks about faith in the midst of trials and what miracles God can and does perform through situations that we see as bad. Below is the part that I read last night while trying to stay up not thinking about the doctor’s appointment today. When Kevin’s father, who is a doctor, heard about the accident he was in Europe at a medical conference. When he came to the hospital back in Ohio, he......
The point of faith

God, in all his wisdom, which is so higher than we can even fathom, is awesome. He caring and loving side blows me away every time. The bible says that all things works together for the good of them that love the Lord. Those who are the called according to His purpose. Standing on faith is not an easy thing to do. You go in and out of what you believe and what you feel and fear. Holding on to God's words is something that takes work and a consent reminder of who we believe and trust in. I am writing this because I don't really want to talk about it and tell the story over and over again until the reality of God's word has stuck deep in my spirit On April 19th I was in a hit and run accident which totaled my car and left me in pain from my waist up, front and back and......
A good friendship answers

Given 2/17/11 Just as a new friendship grows and build trust, so will ours. When you have a friend whom you trust and become more open with the conversation changes. You are more willing to speak your heart. That is what prayer is. Speaking your heart to me and allowing me to converse back to you. At times I will place in your heart what to speak to Me about and other times it will already be in your heart. Just as you have different friends that your speak different things to, I am all those friend wrapped up in one. So see, you can come to me about anything because I already know. Just getting you to speak it (verbally, mentally, or in written form) is for your benefit. (You have not cause you ask not, not because I don't have). There are differnet types of prayers. When you pray......
A good friendship!

From a reading of Joyce Myers. If we rebel against our conscience (what we know is right or wrong) to many times, we can become hard headed. We need to let God soften our hearts so that we can be spiritually sensitive to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Keep your heart soft and sensitive to God's voice. When I was fighting getting up one morning at 6 am for my planned fellowship time with God, I was really throwing a temper tandem. God spoke to my spirit and said "You are acting like one of your students" and I quickly said "You are acting like me! I was referring to how I must get on their nerves making them do things that they don't want to do. I immediately realized who I was talking to and started repenting. What did God do? He laughed! I got up. A two years......
Stop the bucking and just die!

Sun April 1, 2012 This was written Sunday morning. Earlier I had wonted to wear a pair of jeans to church, which wasn't anything out or the ordinary. However as I was putting them on the spirit spoke and said don't wear the jeans. At first I was like, Man I want to wear them. The Spirit said, "I have a reason for you not wearing them". When He told me the reason, I changed into another pair of pants but was still not convinced that I needed to change for the reason that was given (obedient but not willing). This is what I wrote in my journal later in the day while at church. I was thinking back these last few days and how God has been speaking to me and how I (my spirit man) still buck against what He ask. He says "Stay home and be ministered to". (I buck) He......

Last night was a strange one. Early this morning, around 2 in the morning, I was awoken from my sleep. I have to give you the background first. I have been sick since Tuesday and when I cam home that day after school I went right to bed. Wednesday I did not go to school but went to the doctor who told me about all that was happening to me (allergies, infected sinus, pulled back muscle etc...) and prescribed me with five medications, two for pain. I did hobble out to school on Thursday only to have to leave early since I was in pain and feeling horrible. So as I laid in bed early Friday morn, thinking about going to school on that day, I finally fell asleep when I heard the Father say don't go to school, I have things for you to do. Of course I pushed that out my mind because I am......
In the quiet times

The Father has been speaking to our church (and me) concerning quiet time with him. A time of relaxing and waiting in His presence. "Quiet?" I asked. "What is that?". You see I am a very busy woman. I get up (if I don't hit the snooze button!) at 6 am out my door by 8. Teach kindergarten 5 days a week. On Tuesdays and Wednesday it is off to church. On Thursdays it is off to drama rehearsal. Mondays and Fridays are usually free days but I always find something to do whether it is work late at school or just visiting people. On Saturday I can be found anywhere doing anything. Most nights I am home by 9 or 10, and in bed by 12 (if I am sleepy). This week, however, I have been sick since Tuesday. Allergy, sinus infection, and a pulled back muscle from sneezing! Yes, I......
Hope that is for you

Feb 6, 2011 Look out my children. My hope is right in front of you. My hope is available to you. I have it. My hope, My love, My joy. Why do you look other places when it is right here? Why do you think my love is so complicated? It is so simple. Ask and you will receive it overflowing and in abundance. Just ask for it. I am ready and eager to give it to you - love, forgiveness, hope, joy, and rest. It is all mine to give. All you have to do is ask. It is not just for certain people. Yes, it is for you to enjoy. It is my pleasure to give it to you and to see you use it. Come and let me show you what I can do to and for you. It would be my pleasure. As I reread what God has place in my heart I am overwhelmed in the compassion and love in which He speaks! Even in his rebuke there is a......
God wants to hear from you

Wisdom My prayer Father, help me to remember to seek your face and your wisdom in all areas of my life. Forgive me for the deep sin of procrastination. I know and want to live by "Do what you know to do and do it right away". I just don't want to be like this. I ask you for your guidance. Insight God loves you and He loves the sound of your voice coming to Him to pray, worship, and fellowship. Go to Him often, not only for your needs but also the needs of others (Joyce Meyers) Call on the Lord and He will show you great and mighty things that you don't even know about. Given Suddenly- a quickness. Something that comes into our lives so fast that we don't see the shifting. God allows these things to move quickly because it is best done when we are not expecting it.......
