Pain

I have been involved in inner healing prayer for a few years now but never has the necessity really hit me until now. I have just been forced to look at the lives of the people around me. People are hurting and I don’t have much for them. I can offer half hearted advice or some thoughts on what they’ve gone through, but I can’t fix it. I cannot fix them.
So, I do the thing that makes the least sense…I pray. I pray for them. I pray with them.
I know that it hurts and that its hard…but only the One who bore the sins of the world can take it away.
Turn to Jesus. That’s all.

How do you tell a 10 year old that abortion is wrong? You don’t.

So, I’ve been thinking about the issue of life. Last week I was given an assignment from one of the 2 writing groups I’m a part of. The assignment: How would you explain to a 10 year old child that abortion is wrong?

Here’s what I wrote:

Abortion is wrong. It really is that simple. There are no “ifs” “ands” or “buts” about it. However, by the time a woman is contemplating going through with an abortion…its nearly too late to convince her of this fact. What I, as a Christian, get to do is convince children that it is wrong to kill a baby in or out of the womb. I don’t really know how feasible this is, though. Kids are super inquisitive and tend to think of things I do not. I can hear the conversation now…
Me: Abortion is wrong. Ok?
Kid: Why?
Me: Because its murder and murder is against God.
Kid: Why?
Me: Because it is. Don’t get an abortion and tell all your friends.
End.

I can’t tell a kid not to murder a baby in the womb if the kid has no idea of the baby’s value. We must first teach the child their own value before they can value anything else. The kid must know that God loves them. If a child learns that their life is sacred because God calls it sacred, then all life is sacred. God is the author of life…and we cannot end His story before its even written. From the womb to before our very last breath, God knows us and His plans for us include a hope and a future.

There will be a few more posts on life because the issue of life may begin in the womb, but it does not end there. It reaches in us, through us and beyond us.

I’m Back!!!!

Just letting you know that I’m back. My hope is to be faithful to this little insignificant blog in hopes that it may change ur world:)

Pray for Cale

So…I was looking for a recipe for red velvet cheesecake cupcakes and happened upon a random site with random things on it. I was trying to figure out where the recipe was when I saw it. It was on the right side on the screen…in the smallest font ever: Pray for Cale and Kathleen.
That was it.
Something in me wanted to keep searching…but for some reason I felt like I should click on it. Never mind that I still need to do my hair for tomorrow…or that I need to make these cupcakes…or that, at the very least, I should go to bed, because I have to wake up at noon.
Click.
The next thing I knew, I was reading about a soldier who had come back from a few tours in Afghanistan and was starting his new life with a beautiful new bride when tragedy struck. He was in a car accident and his life was changed forever. He had multiple fractures all over his body, damage to his eye, and brain damage.
Then I began to read about his wife. She was injured but ok…she is also a Christian.
So, being the softy that I am…I began to cry.
I cried because for the first time in a very long time, I knew that this guy could be healed in an instant. I just know it can happen. So, I am inviting you to pray for Cale. His recovery. His heart. That he would be encountered in dreams and visions. Also, for his wife…that she would be strengthened in her love for her husband and God. I want to read the post where she is overwhelmed because he woke up healed. I want to read news articles about the miracle that is Cale. I want others to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that our God is God and there is no other. I want doctors to fall to their knees in worship. I want that hospital floor to be cleared out because of the healing power of the name of Jesus. I want it….I want it bad.
Will you join me in contending for this man that I don’t know…to know God’s glory through healing?

Here’s the link to their blog.

Trees of Righteousness

Isaiah 61: 1-7

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
And the sons of the foreigner
Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But you shall be named the priests of the LORD,
They shall call you the servants of our God.
You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
And in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor,
And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs.

 

I’m just in awe of the kindness of the Lord. I don’t have much to say other than that. I mean…He promises that instead of all my issues, I will have the gifts of gladness, liberty, comfort, and joy.  AND on top of all of that…I get to be a tree (a pillar in His house), known as one that has been planted by Him. What the heck?

I’m in awe…I hope you are too.

So, I like blogs…I’m not too good at blogging myself (as you can see), but this girl, Jodi, is great. I like her writing style…and all the pictures. I think that she’s a cool mom and a cool person. You should read about her daily interactions with the world around her.

I think everyone should like this blog…just sayin.
