Worthy: Not Even Oprah Can You Make You Feel This Good

//  I wandered around the room feeling a bit like Oprah. Microphone in hand, and looking for the first volunteer to speak.

But the room was quiet, so quiet. Was anyone listening? Had I communicated clearly? God, You need to do this.”

The mood was set, the message delivered. I knew that Holy Spirit was working deep things into the hearts and souls of these precious women.

But it was so quiet.

I felt Father say, “Shhhhh, just wait.”

So I walked. And prayed. I could hear sniffles and quiet weeping.

“Father, speak to Your girls. They need to hear what You say about them. Erase the lies. Speak truth.”

The lights were dimmed, soft music coming from the keyboard, and Holy Spirit was working.

Don’t rush. Old labels were being removed, and new identities were being spoken.

Then one hand went up. What she said was like refreshing rain to a dry ground and unlocked a wave of hope throughout the room.     Read more

Faith says, “Paste it, Daddy!”

I must admit that my heart is not as healthy as I’d like it to be. No, I’m not speaking about cardiac health. I’m talking about SOUL health.

Have you ever gotten to the place where you know that you should pray… you need to pray… you MUST pray… but unbelief creeps in and steals your confidence? And you secretly realize that it’s easier to expect the worst so that you won’t be disappointed again?

Proverbs 13:12 says it this way, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.”

That’s how I’ve been feeling this week. But where did that come from? I’ve never been a skeptical person. I’m a glass-half-full kind of person.      Read more

Five Minute Friday - Sing More

Last weekend, while I should’ve been writing about SINGing, Erwin and I were actually leading worship at the Church of the Nations International Conference, and this is one of the songs that has been ringing through my mind ever since then.

May it inspire you to also sing regardless of your circumstances and emotions today. (Go ahead, sing the highlighted phrase as you’re reading!) ENJOY! 🙂

Every Friday, I join an inspiring group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES on a one-word prompt. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE.

Two weeks ago, the prompt word was SING and this week the prompt word was MORE!

Today, I decided to combine them both and write on SING MORE!  Enjoy!
