Anne Graham Lotz – Jesus In Me: Her New Book

JESUS IN ME: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion – I got my book early and was so glad I did.

In this day of depression, confusion, & ungodly influences we need hope. Anne Graham Lotz has shared her personal experiences and has shown where that hope comes from. She shares how she received strength, hope, love, & guidance through the Person of the Holy Spirit.

She shows that a daily walk and personal relationship with Jesus helps us to develop and maintain our faith. Our first step is to receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Then allowing the Holy Spirit to come along side us to be our helper.

God has used Anne through this book to show that there is hope and that once you make that commitment to Christ you will not be left alone.

John 14:26-27 New International Version (NIV)

But the Advocate, The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

As Anne writes, “One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life’s journey. Each name that He has been given—Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby—reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion . . . Jesus in me.”

This book will revolutionize your relationship with The Holy Spirit. I love the tools she put at the end of the book. Appendix A: Learning how to hear the Holy Spirit’s Whispers when you read the Bible. Appendix B: Learning how to be filled and stay filled with The Holy Spirit. Appendix C: A self-examination of personal sin. Appendix D: Gifts of the Spirit.

It’s Time To Pray – Not just a good quote

IMG_68ADCDC7810B-1.jpeg

We have had the privilege to meet Pastor Carter & Teresa Conlon.  Our lives have been impacted by them both. In this day of confusion, compromise, & self focus, these two have been an example of true christianity. They are honest & humble people giving their lives “For The Benefit of Others”.

I am excited about Pastor Carters new book coming out November 6th. My husband & I have been doing the YouVersion devotional plan and have been changed in our hearts. I can say so many nice things about Pastor Carter & Teresa, but I think they would rather the focus be on Christ and what He can do for you. That is the type of People they are. Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I believe this book is coming out for such a time as this, so pre-order yours today.

“I’m reading the plan ‘Prayer For Life’. Check it out here: another new reading plan from ⁦⁩ and the new book “It’s Time To Pray” . I believe God is going to ignite fresh faith for many tired believers through this book!!”

Pastor Len Paxton

“Pastor Carter Conlon is a true man of God who lives what he preaches. He has been given a special anointing of the Holy Spirit to deliver the Word of God with straightforwardness and authority yet with mercy and grace. When this man preaches, you know you have truly heard from God’s throne.”

Third Day Farewell Tour 2018

I hear about a lot of farewell tours but this one has me thinking a lot about life. My husband & I have had the privilege of meeting Third Day. Third Day has been around 25 years. My Husband & I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year. We are doing our own tour this year to celebrate our 25 yrs. It’s not final tour but it is a kick off for our next assignment from the Lord. Just like Third Day they too will have new adventures for God in their lives. 

It was such a blessing for us to go to see Third Day at many concerts. The experience was more than just watch & listening to music. Third Day reaches out to those who have not received Christ & causes those who do know Christ to go deeper in their walk. They spark revival and fire in your soul. 

God has used this band to bring liberty & freedom to many. Even though this is called a farewell tour, I think just like their name says, Yes it is the Third Day & Sunday is here. This is a new beginning for them and a new chapter in their lives. We will continue to pray for them and for God to continue to use them mightily in their new season of life. 

So make plans today to join them in this tribute to their fans. Below is a link to more information and some live concerts.

This was one of my favorite times:

A Camp with Kingdom Impact -Thomas Road Outpost

(Picture taken from the camp)

IMG_7739.jpg

This October we were blessed with a tour of the Thomas Road Outpost Camp. This was very excited because we live in Northern Michigan and the Camp is in Lynchburg, VA and we have been giving to this project.

Before I tell you about the camp, I want to share about my camping experience. I don’t remember how old I was, but I was old enough that it made an impact on my life. But this impact was not a Kingdom impact. I was so excited to be going on this camping trip with my friends. I had some really close friends that we did everything together and this was going to be the best time, so I thought. We were going to go canoe on the Au Sable River in Michigan.

To keep this story short I will just hit the highlights. I had a leader who didn’t look out for us, instead he brought drugs to give us. Not really understanding the impact this was going to have on me, wanting to be a part of the gang, I participated. Little did I know he also had other intentions. This was horrifying and even as I write this I can’t even think of the details, even though I have been set free from my past, I have no use in giving those events another look except to use it as a stepping stone to tell you that experience was no “Kingdom Impact”. There are many children who need to be rescued from the chance of having that same experience.

That is one reason I am passionate about this camp. My husband is the other. He had a vision many years ago about a place like Thomas Road Outpost Camp. One that would give so many a great outdoor experience and reach them for the Gospel. When we visited the camp in October we took a four wheeler to the top of the mountain. Along the way we saw the cabins that are being built, the zip line area, the place they will be having outdoor survival activities, and so much more.

Thomas Road Baptist Church has been involved in camping programs for over fifty years. In March 2014 they were given 500-acre parcel of land in the midst of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Peaks of Otter Region. It was donated to be repurposed as a youth camp with the emphasis of reaching at-rist youth from Virginia and the surrounding areas.  They also will be having Marriage seminars and other events.

Their focus is to reach thousand of children each year through Christ-centered camping experience in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This is a place that children can leave the pressures and distractions of modern life behind and just be kids. They will experience camp life, have fun, but will be given hope and love. TRO encourages campers toward a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Each year they receive thousands of requests from the area but are unable to house them due to the limited space. They have the potential to reach so many with The Gospel of Jesus, bringing hope and healing to them. So that is why I am writing this post. I am reaching out to whoever reads this to please consider giving to this worth while project. Help TRO make that “Kingdom Impact” to as many as possible. You can help change a life.

Disciple Rocks – Do you?

Disciple

We recently were able to go to a Disciple Concert. We have been blessed by their music for many years. This was more than a concert, this was more than a band who entertains, this was a band who by sharing their faith through their music and their message reached the heart of those who attended.

Their main focus for what they do is to have an eternal impact on the lives of those who come to their concerts. They want to bring God glory in all they do.

When they sing, it is with all their heart and might. Some might not like the harder music but their message is clear.

Through their music the question comes across to the people:

Whom do you say Jesus is?

Matthew 16:15-18King James Version (KJV)

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Everyone needs to come to the place where they receive Jesus as the Christ. This is how the gates of hell will not prevail in our lives. They preach Jesus. UPON THIS ROCK….THE GATES OF HELL WILL NOT PREVAIL….

John 10:10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Disciple have become fisher of men…
Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Now they reach out to others and they say: Follow me as I follow Christ… (1 Corinthians 11:1)

Their vision is to provide hard rock music through our albums and concerts that is not only entertaining, but is filled with the Word of God.

We saw many come to Christ at their concert. This is a post they put on their page after the concert we went to…This is why we support bands like Disciple….

Had a very special person tonight that has been struggling with suicide…. make me a PROMISE TO LIVE. I want to encourage anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts to “take that option off of the table” for good. We must BELIEVE the truth instead of the LIES.
List of LIES –
1. you are worthless
2. You don’t matter
3. Nobody loves you
4. The pain is too great
List of TRUTH
1. God LOVES YOU
2. You matter. God has a plan for your life to use the gifts and talents that you have.
3. You are precious and valuable to God. He demonstrated His great love for you by giving His life for you on the Cross. His love for you is everlasting. And nothing can separate from the Love of God. Nothing!
4. The pain is great, but God will transform your life through having a relationship with Him. Just like a baby can’t talk yet, but it will get there. It takes time. God will show you how to overcome your pain, and He will even use the bad things in our life to shape us and mold us into this beautiful creature that can OVERCOME anything!!! Never give our hope in Christ. He loves you, you matter, you are precious, and He will teach you how to overcome everything.
If you are struggling with suicide, I want tonight to be the night that you take that option off the table and make a PROMISE TO LIVE. If that’s you, then I want you to respond to this post by saying “I PROMISE TO LIVE”

Study God’s word, Reach out to others, Lead people to Christ, & Become a Disciple today….

Here are the words to one of my favorite songs…

“Radical”
I’ll be a Radical
It’s easy too find one that will compromise
but it’s not easy to find one that’s willing to stand
But the road to hell is wide
but to haven it’s one way it’s one truth it’s one life
That’s why we’re not ashamed of the name of Jesus
and we don’t care if the whole world sees us
From our chains he has set us free
and I could never repay what he has given to me
I’ve been radically loved
I’ve been radically changed
By his grace I have been radically saved
and I’ll live my life no other way
With my hart with my soul
Till the day I die I’ll be a Radical
With my blood with my bones
It’s easy to find someone that’s willing to die
but it’s not easy find someone that’s willing to live
I want to walk in his footsteps even if the world hates me
ready to love and not afraid to forgive
Never ashamed of the name of Jesus
and yeah we want the whole world to see us
see He’s burning in our harts
offering mercy with outstretched arms
Not just my mouth but let my hands speak the glory of God
Not just my mouth but let my hands speak the glory of God

Disciple LIVE…
