Leadership and Titles– Part I

  Leadership bears great accountability. No man or woman when called seemed to feel worthy of the calling. They knew the cost and said things like, “I can’t speak, I am but a child–did I give birth to all these people?” Anarchy is a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority. Do…

Avi, avi, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!

After the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a still, small voice. (I Kings 19:12). In this blog portion, I will ask multiple questions. I pray the questions are thought-provoking, and that you will share some of your thoughts. First picture the heart…

The Myrrh of Miriam/ Mary

In this teaching we will look at Miriam and the anointing oil she poured out, but first I have a question. Are we cursing or holding back blessings from our fellow family members? There was a prophet in the Bible named Balaam who was enticed to curse Abba’s people. Once he realized that he could…

Free Chapter of Doctrines of Demons

Chapter 3 A Matter of Understanding I will never forget receiving a call from my pastor. His voice was urgent; he needed me to drive over to the church as soon as possible. A woman tormented by evil spirits was on her way, accompanied by her husband, and the pastor was requesting my help to…

Beauty for Ashes

I found this poem from last year and wanted to post it. Maybe you have felt the same things at times?     I gathered all my strength and tried to raise up from the ashes. I held ashes in my hands and raised them up to Him “Here, take these ashes– I screamed!” “Give…

Up to Half the Kingdom, Part II, Can We Drink This Cup?

Up To Half the Kingdom   When I posted part one of Up to Half the Kingdom, I had typed a portion of part two already.  However, I had a chapter from my memoir (Still unpublished) titled “Can You Drink this Cup?” ringing in my head. Although I do plan on posting one more chapter…

The Naked King

There is a children’s book written by H. S. Anderson titled The Emperor’s new clothes. I’ll be weaving this tale along with a man named Naaman in this writing concerning self-perception and denial. “The name Naaman is derived from the verb נעם (na’em) meaning be pleasant, sweet, delightful, and beautiful” (Abarim Publications). We can be all…

Do we hate Him?

  “Though you have slept among the sheepfolds (the sheepfolds, שְׁפַ֫תָּ֥יִם Strong’s Hebrew 8240: fireplaces, ash heaps), yet shall you be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold” (Psalm 68:13, KJ). Recently, I received an urgent prayer request for a little girl who is three years old….

Friends who shine like the Son

I went to visit some dear friends a couple of weeks ago. I love these people. I love their hearts and how they have done missionary work in poverty-stricken countries. I love how they don’t have much money, but what extra they do have, they use to buy Bibles for orphans in Malawi or put…
