Amazing Love

Amazing Love

We love because He first loved us.
~ 1 John 4:19 NIV

continue reading "Amazing Love"


Contrary to popular belief,
God WILL allow us to experience
"far beyond" what we can bear,
so "that we might NOT rely on ourselves,
but on God."

Excellent reminder from Andrew Farley on Facebook

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

We don't want you in the dark, friends, about how hard it was
when all this came down on us in Asia province.
It was so bad we didn't think we were going to make it.
We felt like we'd been sent to death row, that it was all over for us.
As it turned out, it was the BEST THING that could have happened.
 Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it,
~ not a bad idea since he's the God who raises the dead!

~ 2 Corinthians 1:8,9 MSG

Pathway of Pain

Pathway of Pain

If my days were untroubled and my heart always light,
would I seek that fair land where there is no night?

If I never grew weary with the weight of my load,
would I search for God’s peace at the end of the road?

If I never knew sickness and never felt pain,
would I search for a hand to help and sustain?

If I walked without sorrow and lived without loss,
would my soul seek solace at the foot of the cross?

If all I desired was mine day by day,
would I kneel before God and earnestly pray?

If God sent no winter to freeze me with fear,
would I yearn for the warmth of spring every year?

I ask myself these questions and the answer is plain,
If my life were pleasure and I never knew pain—
I’d seek God less often and need Him much less,

For God is sought more often in times of distress.
And no one knows God or sees Him as plain
As those who have met Him on the pathway of pain.

Battered Sheep

Hidden in the shadows.

Covered in darkness and shame the battered sheep try to piece together truth. These precious lambs taken in youth, hurt by those who called themselves their shepherd, spiritual leader or pastor.

So many young lambs ravaged by horrific abuse, now grown sheep wondering what the true heart of their Shepherd looks like.

This post is by one such sheep, who's heart has discovered truth.

Read the complete article ~ Battered Sheep.

I am the good shepherd.
I know my own and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Winning Him Without Words

Winning Him Without Words

10 Keys to Thriving in Your
Spiritually Mismatched Marriage

Week after week, they sit in church . . . alone. They are the spiritually mismatched, those who are committed to a spouse who does not share their faith. Feeling abandoned by their spouse and forgotten by their church, they live out their faith in survival mode, guarding the spiritual flame yet never feeling free to share it. But God wants them to thrive—not just survive.

Winning Him Without Words by Lynn Donovan and Dineen Miller presents
10 Christ-centered keys to thriving in a spiritual mismatch.

Readers are encouraged to commit to Christian community, to release their spouse to God’s capable hands, to believe their marriage is blessed, to pick and choose their battles, and to continue their pursuit of a growing faith and to love their spouse with fresh enthusiasm.

“It matters not how we came to be in our crazy, mixed-up and unexpected marriage situations. What matters is that God desires that we honor our marriage commitment and fulfill our marriage vows through His power and His strength,” says Miller. “There were many years of confusion, sadness and unfulfilled expectations, but I discovered it’s possible to love, live and thrive in an unequally yoked marriage.”

Both Lynn and Dineen are Christian women in spiritually unequally yoked marriages,but believe that God wants EVERY marriage to exude peace and love.

Chapters include:

Know You’re Not Alone

(Lynn) Recognizing that we aren’t the only person living in an unequally yoked marriage is a key aspect to restoring hope. Having Christ in our lives enables us to view our husbands as the wonderful man God created, regardless of your different beliefs.

Don’t Save Your Husband – Save Yourself

(Lynn) The best thing I ever did was to get out of the way so that Jesus could be Jesus. I relinquished control and turned my man completely over to Christ and an unexpected, peaceful freedom emerged in our marriage.

Trade Perfection for Authenticity

(Dineen) I came to understand that many of my disappointments had come from expectations I’d placed upon him to fulfill needs he wasn’t even aware of. In the end, all I really accomplished was a heart full of resentment.

Keep Your Armor On-You’re at War!

(Dineen) Instead of putting on the label of martyr in a spiritually mismatched marriage, we need to put on the label of missionaries. We need to think of ourselves as soldiers on the front lines of our marriages.

Other chapters include parenting children in an unequally yoked marriage, praying into the life of your spouse and scriptures to encourage and strengthen you.

Winning Him Without Words empowers readers to create that environment in their homes and thrive as God works.

LYNN DONOVAN writes for the online ministry she founded in 2006, Spiritually Unequal Marriage.

Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands
so that, if any of them do not believe the word,
they may be won over without words
by the behavior of their wives,
when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

Grace Flows Down

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Grace Flows Down ~ Christy Nockels

But then Law came in, [only] to expand and increase the trespass
[making it more apparent and exciting opposition].
But where sin increased and abounded,
grace (God's unmerited favor) has surpassed it
and increased the more and superabounded,

So that, [just] as sin has reigned in death,
[so] grace (His unearned and undeserved favor)
 might reign also through righteousness (right standing with God)
which issues in eternal life through Jesus Christ
 (the Messiah, the Anointed One) our Lord.

~ Romans 5:20-21 AMP

FREE Christian Audiobook: Jesus, the Only Way to God

The Titus Mandate

Ted Bigelow encourages
his readers to follow
God’s model of leadership
for the church.

The church is supposed to be the safest place on earth for Christians, so why is it often a place of deep dissatisfaction?

Many Christians suffer from difficult church situations and are unsure how to live and worship with such stress, let alone grow in the midst of it. Much of this pain comes from being under poor church leadership. According to Ted Bigelow, if your church doesn’t follow God’s mandate for leadership as set out in the book of Titus, it is almost certainly headed for disaster.

All Christians want to be a part of a safe and godly church so that they can invest in its ministries and mission without fear or compromise. Yet thousands of real churches, perhaps yours, have been infiltrated by dangerous men. Many Christians have been so hurt by these wolves that they have left church, vowing never to return. Other sheep, unaware of what they are witnessing week by week, pay the wolves to preach their error.

In The Titus Mandate, readers will follow Paul’s special attaché Titus on his treacherous mission to the Mediterranean island of Crete. You’ll learn for yourself what Titus experienced as he went toe-to-toe with the wolves, carrying out God’s very public mission to rescue Christians and churches from danger. Paul’s journey will teach you how to spot the wolves and protect yourself and those you love from Satan’s most prolific form of spiritual peril.

Through reading this book, Christians will be equipped to:

* Understand the biblical reasons for most negative church experiences
and gain scriptural wisdom about their church trials.

* Trust in the Lord whose wisdom brings such trials into His children’s lives,
enabling them to move forward in their walks with Christ.

* Discern safe churches from unsafe churches.

* Participate in church in a way that draws them closer to the Lord.

Taking the truth from Scripture and applying it in the church is easier said than done, so The Titus Mandate provides specific instruction on how to live out God’s principles that make church a secure place. One’s confidence in church will be restored as God’s ways are explained, applied, and contrasted with those ways that bring danger. The Titus Mandate is a rescue plan for Christians and their churches. Readers will be able to feel confident that the leadership they have chosen will be trustworthy shepherds for their families.

{EXPIRED} FREE Kindle Edition of 'Leota's Garden'

FREE Kindle Edition of
Leota's Garden

* Availaible ONLY for a Limited Time

Product Description

Acclaimed Christian fiction writer Francine Rivers's (The Atonement Child) Leota's Garden uses the image of the garden as a metaphor for the cycles of life that the characters experience. While the story revolves around a number of lives, they are all connected through Leota--an 84-year-old grandmother--and her garden, which was once a place of beauty and hope but has in recent years gone to ruin. Beginning in desolation--Leota has been neglected by her self-centered daughter, whose obsession with getting her own daughter into the best college has driven them apart--the novel slowly shows the weaving together of lives in the mysterious ways of grace: a proud and narrow-minded college student ends up learning more from Leota than he'd bargained for, and the granddaughter Leota had never been allowed to know shows up looking for some answers, and even more, looking for Leota herself. A garden blooms, the novel suggests, by getting one's hands a little dirty doing the hard work of love. (c) Amazon.com

* Available ONLY for a Limited Time

Product Description

RX: FROM THE DESK OF RICHARD A. SWENSON, M.D. Overload is not having time to finish the book you're reading on stress. Margin is having time to read it twice. Overload is fatigue. Margin is energy. Overload is red ink. Margin is black ink. Overload is hurry. Margin is calm. Overload is anxiety. Margin is security. Overload is the disease of the 90's. Margin is the cure.

As a medical practitioner, Dr. Richard Swenson sees a steady stream of exhausted, hurting people coming into his office. A majority of them are suffering from an uncontrolled societal epidemic: living without margin.

Margin is the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits. It's something held in reserve for contingencies or unanticipated situations.

As a society, we've forgotten what margin is. In the push for progress, margin has been devoured. So we feel distressed in ill-defined ways. We are besieged by anxiety, stress, and fatigue. Our relationships suffer. We have unexplained aches and pains. The flood of daily events seems beyond our control. We're overloaded.

In Margin, Dr. Swenson provides a prescription against the danger of overloaded lives. Focusing on margin in four key areas-emotional energy, physical energy, time, and finances-he offers an overall picture of health that employs contentment, simplicity, balance, and rest.

If you yearn for relief from the pain and pressure of overload, take a lifelong dose of Margin under the care of a specialist. The benefits of good health, financial stability, fulfilling relationships, and availability for God's purposes will follow you all your days. (c) Amazon.com

Discovering & Dealing
With the Lies
That We Don't Even Know
We Believe

"The thief comes ONLY to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have LIFE, & have it to the FULL."
~ John 10:10 NIV

A core lie is something we believe that resides so deep down inside of us that it has almost become a part of our personality.  We don't know it's there, and furthermore, we have learned how to live in such a way that subconsciously controls much of our thought life and behavior.  It is such a subtle occurrence that we do not see or understand the damaging affect it is having on our life and the lives of those around us.  Our core lie is based on what we put our worth and value in apart from God.  (c)  Core Lies

He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.

Searching for MORE THAN Mediocre



Nobody dreams of a mediocre marriage.

Nobody desires a mediocre career.

And yet the reality is day after day so many of us
are simply coasting through life secretly thinking,
“There has got to be MORE to life than this.”

God actually desires so much more for you,
but it starts with you ALLOWING HIM to be the author of your life.

Learn how to live a life FULL OF FAITH - TRUSTING IN GOD who can do
 “Immeasurably MORE” than we could ever dream or imagine.

 Dare to move BEYOND your hiding places of fear and insecurity

Rich Communion

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Trust Me enough to spend ample time with Me,
pushing back the demands of the day.
Refuse to feel guilty about something
that is so pleasing to Me, the King of the universe.
Because I am omnipotent, I am able to
bend time and events in your favor.
You will find that you can accomplish more in less time,
after you have given yourself to Me in rich communion.

(c)  Sarah Young
