TAP INTO THE POWER
I have exciting news for you: you have a powerhouse inside you! It’s the Holy Spirit. He came to live in you when you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior (John 14:17).
There are untold advantages to having the very Spirit of God living inside you. He is there to reveal the things of God to you and to make sure you live in the fullness of God’s covenant, free from the curse of the enemy.
Sometimes things happen to us that take us completely by surprise. We’re shocked, even.
That’s how I felt when my husband died – he hadn’t been sick, and he was only 37 years old! He just went to bed one night and woke up in heaven.
Maybe you’ve been shocked by something in your life. It’s not a feeling we humans like. It makes us feel like life is out of control, and we don’t know what might happen next. It can make us feel like panicking.
But even though you may feel like panicking, God does not. He isn’t shocked, or surprised, or afraid. He isn’t sitting on the throne making the Home Alone face, and He never will be.
Your heavenly Father never says, “Wow, I didn’t see that coming!” The events of your life don’t freak out God or catch Him by surprise. No matter what has (or has not) happened to you, I want you to know that God still has a good plan for you. Don’t panic.
AUGUST 2014 - In July we were blessed to attend the Christian United For Israel (CUFI) Summit in Washington, D.C. Then, since I'd never been to D.C. before, we took a couple extra days to see the sites. What an amazing city -- so much history! Here we are at the Lincoln memorial which looks out to the Washington Monument.
On August first I finished my second book ("How to Make the Right Decision Every Time") and sent it off to my publisher, Charisma House. It's due to be released in January of 2015. We're pretty excited about this one!
JULY 2014 - Since moving to Minnesota in mid-May, I've been enjoying the cooler temps and getting acquainted with my new surroundings!
Bob and I have taken a couple day trips, and here we are in Alma, Wisconsin, high on a mountain with a breathtaking view of the Mississippi. We are loving married life!
We just finished your DVD series "Parenting with Purpose" and it has changed our lives! My husband and I are implementing and learning new things every day! I’m truly enjoying my children for the first time in a really long time -- a lot of the pressure about being a "perfect parent" has been lifted because no such thing exists. I find comfort in knowing that all the answers I need to help me be a better parent are in God’s word! Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us!
