Imagine You Are Wonderful!

At the 2019 UHURU International PowWow Women Leaders and Discipleship Training conference we studied how we were created in the image of God. It was wonderful to discover the only thing that matters on this earth is how God sees us! The scrutiny and judgment of others is irrelevant to our design and purpose for being created.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made…

Imagine that!

In the beginning, God created Mankind in His Image,
both male & female.

Who am I, Why am I here? What is my purpose for being here?

As you most likely know, we are seeing epidemic identity issues that are causing crisis, trauma and terror everywhere. Healing mankind’s broken relationship with God is the only way these issues can be resolved. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other way to solve the problem of having a broken identity.

Scripture tells us; “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” I Peter 2:10

We also learned when Adam and Eve sinned, their relationship, plan and purpose in the earth and with God was shattered and broken.

Our identity is found in covenant. ~Kathy Behm

But we also learn that after Adam and Eve sinned, God made a covenant with them to redeem them from their sin. The first lamb was slain at the foundation of the world. God’s love and mercy and redemption plan began. Then the lamb of God, Jesus was sacrificed on the cross to die for the sins of the world. This covenant was made and stands available for any who will believe and receive.

Through salvation, God has also restored an individual’s identity, plan and purpose in the earth, for those who are born again. This is why we used image and identity as our first teaching in our Freedom PowWow.

Once we know, believe and understand that God created us in His image; then we can begin to walk upright, knowing He will direct our steps toward His plan and purpose for our lives.

We become new creatures and supernatural beings with an eternal purpose. God’s Kingdom will never be conquered or pass away. We will reign with Him forever.

Knowing and walking in this; “It is for freedom that Christ sets us free.”

Galatians 5:1

God gives us free will because He doesn’t believe in making His people be robots or slaves. If you are a skeptic about God, I’m asking you to stop and just imagine for one moment that you were created by God and made in His image. As your creator, He has a special reason He created you.

He will reveal why and for what purpose you were created if you will ask Him to show you.
It doesn’t matter what you have done, where you are or how you feel about yourself, it doesn’t change how God feels about you. He wants you to know Him.
It is wonderful, marvelous and forever!

Jesus says, “Let this be your identity!”

Judith McNutt says,

“Jesus demonstrated a solid identity: he knew he had come from the Father, he knew that God had put all things under his authority, and he knew he was returning to the Father. If we, too, know these three things – that we were created by God, that he has a purpose for us, and that, when it is time, he will call us home to him – then we experience our God-given identity and the assurance that we truly belong in his family – in his kingdom.”

By believing and accepting Jesus, you are accepting this eternal covenant
and becoming part of God’s Kingdom here on earth, as it already is in heaven1

You are One of God’s Treasures,

What is that to you? Follow Me

Imagine yourself to be the Apostle Peter. You have cried, prayed, fasted, fished, all night, and caught nothing. And then suddenly a voice cries out from the shore and tells you to cast your net again, just one more time. The fish come from nowhere and are practically jumping into the net.  You look back to the man who called out from the shore and realize it is Jesus!  You realize it is going to take some time to haul in this catch and you just can’t wait. So you put on your robe and jump out of the boat to get to shore to embrace Him. In the midst of the excitement, you forget your sorrow and that denied Him ~ three times.

Because…. just a few short days ago, you were in the upper room with everyone and like the rest, swore your allegience to always follow this man you believed to be the Son of God. Then just when you thought you would never do what you did…

 

So when he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and [e]sat down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me, Teacher, and, Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye also should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, A [f]servant is not greater than his lord; neither [g]one that is sent greater than he that sent him.

If ye know these things, blessed are ye if ye do them.
John 13:12-17

Jesus washed each of the disciple’s feet individually. He then said to them, “do this to one another.”  I believe he was saying, “Don’t compare yourself to one another, but serve one another as I have served you.” Peter, John and the other disciples lived, loved and worked with Jesus, yet each one had their individual assignments in the Kingdom of God.

God’s Treasures Will Last Forever!

 

Patricia and Marcus copy
God’s Treasures – Patricia & Marcus Winchester

I recently included a testimony in my newsletter from Patricia Winchester who shared with me, “I don’t ask God Why, I say Why Not Me?” She recently shared her personal trial and testimony at her church! My Enews included the entire sermon…but, for just Patricia’s testimony Click Here. It is a message of HOPE and is very worth sharing with those who are in a battle of any kind and of course those who have never received the hope of an eternal home with Jesus Christ.

God’s Treasure – Revivalist Barbara Weeks Spayd

My good friend Barbara Weeks Spayd packed her bags and went home to be with the Lord, this past May. Her church Lifepoint prepared a wedding banquet as a celebration of her life. Barbara taught on becoming the Bride of Christ and was passionate about this topic.

So thankful for mom’s church family at Life Point – the memorial service was set up like a wedding banquet – so appropriate for a woman who was so in love with her Bridegroom – absolutely sure she would have LOVED it 😊. Jeanine Post

I was able to spend time with her just before I left last November for Alaska. Our last meeting together she prayed over me, and said in her always affirming voice… You WILL finish your race strong!

A friend wrote about her memorial service…

Went to the beautiful celebration of life for this dear friend this morning. As usual, I left feeling better than when I went in. It was always the case when being with Barbara. I’m so thankful she was in my life. I’m also a little jealous that she gets to be in heaven right now. Also thankful that we will see her again. Can’t wait.

Her last trip to Israel she began a blog which may be viewed here.

Barbara and I met whenever we could when she was home from Israel. She would email or write to me over the span of  over two decades and was always a source of strength, encouragement and spiritual mother.

I pray for you regularly because I know you are so talented and have a great anointing on your life and destiny arranged by God for you before the foundation of the world.
I can only tell you what I am doing, and Richard confirmed this morning that I am right on.
Devour the Word Marlene, I read all of the Book of Revelation yesterday and Hebrews this morning. I don’t ever remember devouring the Word like I am this last few weeks.
Just read until God gives you a Rhema Word and then cling to that Word for dear life. Jesus is the Word and He is our Bread, the Bread of Life.
What’s happening is that our faith is being stretched like never before. We are no longer in the boat and what that means to me is that if He doesn’t rescue us, we’re lost. I’ve been in such pain with my leg this week, but remember Moses was on the backside of the desert when God called him to deliver His chosen people.

Richard had a word this morning that we can only go on as high a mountain as we have been prepared for through our testings and experiences.

And you my dear friend have had more than your share of problems.

Command that depression to get off you right now. You have the authority. Encourage yourself in the Lord and review every promise He has given you. I pray for a witty invention for you. This is a trial of your faith, but because Jesus is interceding for you you will find your destiny.
This morning he said, “We can call our future in right now because God has already finished it.” So I say to you, “NO MORE DELAYS. NO MORE DETOURS. YOU ARE GOING INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND!”
 
Talk to you soon.
 
Barbara

 

Naomi
God’s Treasure – Evangelist Naomi Moore    I’m So Glad You Prayed for Me!

A third woman God brought my way almost thirty years ago is Naomi Moore. She has been praying for me and my sons ever since.  We were able to sit, laught and share God’s goodness together!  You can listen to a special testimony about a phone that was dead and came to life…just in the nick of time! I’ve titled it The Resurrected Phone!

These are just three amazing women God has put in my life that I would like to honor and share with you today!

There so many men and women in my life who are so very special to me. I am reminded each day how we all need one another, and how important it is to stay connected with those God brings our way!

Looking forward to us all finishing the race well!

Searching for God’s Treasures,

Insecurity “I”s that will incinerate you!

Insecurity

No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I Corinthians 10:13-14

Idolatry is putting anything or anyone before the Lord. It is a subtle form of insecurity. It is easy to try and please others, especially as Christians.  We will tell subtle lies in order not to hurt someone’s feelings, and we may read other’s actions as contrary to our own welfare, and make assumptions.

Both are traps….from the enemy.  The Corinthian church had these same issues.  The enemy will tempt us…. but God, said He has already taken care of this for us in advance!

Whenever we feel these things try to tempt us…. Run!  Insecurity will incinerarte you and God’s plans for you! Run from insecurity…. Run into the security of Jesus!

Blessings,

Indigestion – “I”s That Will Incinerate You

Indigestion

“For my groaning comes at the sight of my food, And my cries pour out like water.”
Job 3:24

Which comes first, indigestion or groaning?  The truth is that your health can be ruined because of the way stress, crisis and trauma is handled in your life.  It is important that you recognize the early signs and warnings that indigestion can bring.

Learning to develop an “attitude of gratitude” even when things aren’t going particularly the best, will serve you well in the long run.  Also, being thankful for what God has blessed you with is very important.  Forgiveness, self-control, thankfulness and plain old perseverance can help you through the times of hardship, testing and trials. This will keep your digestive system healthy and intact.

No better lesson can we learn from Paul, as he was facing hardships all the day long.

 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:22-24

Preparing the Bride – A Hopeful Heart

Bride1929

Preparing to be the Bride of Christ – A Hopeful Heart

13 “If you would prepare your heart,
And stretch out your hands toward Him;
14 If iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away,
And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
15 Then surely you could lift up your face without spot;
Yes, you could be steadfast, and not fear;
16 Because you would forget your misery,
And remember it as waters that have passed away,
17 And your life would be brighter than noonday.
Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
18 And you would be secure, because there is hope;
Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
19 You would also lie down, and no one would make you afraid;
Yes, many would court your favor.

Job 11:13-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

Preparing to become the BRIDE begins with a preparation of the
heart.  We can have all the answers, live a seemingly perfect life, but still miss becoming
the BRIDE.

Can I stand firm, be steadfast and without fear?

Can I cast my sorrows, hurts, disappointments and troubles on the sea of forgetfulness, and let them forever be gone without revisiting them?

If, I can put Christ in the forefront of every thought, action and deed, then and only then can my heart be prepared to receive the hope, security, safety confidence and favor to love and serve Him as He truly deserves.

As my faithful Defender, Shepherd, Lover, and HUSBAND.

Partner with Me on my Trip to Africa!

Challenge Farm

Dear Friends and Family,

July is finally here and  I’m excited to be heading to Challenge Farm in Kitale, Kenya Africa!

Challenge Farm is part of Globe Hope, the humanitarian arm of Globe International, Inc. where I work.

When I got saved at the age of 12, I felt God calling me to Africa. I could see myself in a vision giving a cup of water to little children. Challenge Farm was founded in 1992 and is home to 188 street children. Many lives have been changed over the years at Challenge Farm and I am so excited to be able to go there! For more information please visit their website at Challenge Farm.org.

Below is a story that happened just last year. Above is a picture of some of these precious children. “On April 9, 2014 in Kitale, Kenya 87 street kids were awakened from their sleep and placed in jail. Challenge Farm by faith took in 30 new children.”As the children were brought to Challenge Farm one of the boys asked, “Is there food at Challenge Farm?” – “Yes, 3 meals a day” – “and football every day!” – “and showers! ” Jesse and Elissa Pontius

The cost of the 21-day trip is about $3,000. This price includes airfare, meals, lodging, and ground transportation and some supplies for the Challenge Farm. Please pray for our team & me as we prepare to go on this mission trip. Apart from financial support, there are several ways you could help:

At the present time I have approximately ¼ of my funds raised. I would like to ask that you would consider supporting me financially. (I recommend a gift of $50, $100 or $150, but you can always give more!), but more important please pray for me and our team. A few facts about where I am going:

Challenge Farm Boys

  • In Sub-Saharan Africa (the part of the continent south of the Sahara Desert), more than 300 million people – nearly half the population – live on less than $1 a day.
  • Every day 6,600 people die from AIDS.
  • More than 12 million African children have already lost one or both parents to AIDS, with the number of AIDS orphans expected to increase to more than 18 million by 2010.
  • In Kenya, the median age is only 18, and about half the population is 15 or younger

The 30 children that were taken in from being “netted” on the street were all 12 and younger. The minimum cost to feed, clothe, provide medical, dental, shelter and education is approximately $200+ per month. Imagine your monthly household expenses increasing $6,000 per month in one day!
