SIX STRONGHOLDS THAT CAN HOLD US CAPTIVE! Did you know that God desires to use you for kingdom purposes? If not it is time to get a clue.  Here is some of my favorite Scripture: Isaiah 61:1-3 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good […]

God in the Darkness

posted by Cinda On April - 29 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

For many years, I have counseled others in the dark to remember what God told them in the light. I forgot, a long time ago, where that thought originated but it seemed to sum up well my philosophy about trouble: be prepared and be faithful. In 2008, I had reason to put that advice into […]

#1 Around the World – Come Home

“How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation and says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7 NASB As we take that first step over the threshold into the unknown, we glance downwards to see if we are […]

Paul’s Pattern for our Prayers

posted by Cinda On April - 23 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

Colossians 1:9-14 Since my husband’s diagnosis with cancer we have been deeply comforted by the many assurances of prayer from friends near and far. There is no sweeter gift that one can receive. But sometimes we are at a loss as to how to pray in times of uncertainty. I found this prayer of Paul’s […]

I don’t like good-byes. The first thing I want to do when I arrive somewhere is plant those perennial flowers, and stay put. Who knows? Perhaps I went through a traumatic experience somewhere in my childhood that has really crippled my abilities to deal with good-byes. Whatever the reason, I do not do well with […]

Our Prayers for Families

posted by Cinda On April - 19 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

The tragedy continues in our country and our prayers are with the victims, family, and friends of those who were killed or injured in Massachusetts. The physical and emotional results will never completely fade away, but we pray that God would wrap His compassionate arms around every person affected and His hand of healing on those who […]

Praying Through the Armor of God

posted by Cinda On April - 16 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Use every piece of God’s armor to resist […]

#2 Around the World – Come Home

posted by Cinda On April - 16 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

In order to “come home”, we must admit that we have been away, sometimes wandering aimlessly, sometimes purposefully, but nevertheless, we must look back for the sake of looking forward. Where is “home”? Most people today know the function of a GPS (Global Positioning System). If you want to go to your destination, you feed […]

Change: God’s Way!

Do you have a friend where neither time nor distance could ever diminish the closeness or Christ-like love you have for one another? And when you do come together after a long period of separation, it’s as though no time had lapsed at all. There’s always lots of laughter, memories relived, and a bond that […]
