Living the Dream

"God UNLIMITED by our theology: Woman in rural village in Asian nation was unable to sleep due to evil spirits howling and screaming at night in her mud hut. This had been going on for a long time. She came to a missionary (who was taught that the gifts of Holy Spirit are NOT for today) who told her Jesus has broken authority of evil spirits and they have to leave. She went back to home. When howling started again she said “My friends told me you have no authority here and you must leave in Jesus name.” Instantly howling stops, evil spirit leaves and woman enjoys her sleep. (9.5.12)"

Dis or De

It's been a tough year.

There have been more than a few difficulties at work, at church and in the family - my three greatest loves.

At times I've gotten DISappointed, DIScouraged, even DISillusioned.

But that's not to say I've fallen into DEpression, DEspair or DEspondency.

Sometimes it's just a choice.

Sometimes I have to just hang on to His Word:
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
 Actually, that's all the time.... It's pretty obvious that if God didn't have my back, I'd be stuffed.
