Prayer Is A Powerful Thing!

Prayer is a powerful thing!

For the last few weeks a high volume of Christians have been deep in the trenches, drawn together doing what we do best in all situations—Praying! Prayer is a powerful thing! When family (as well as ourselves), friends, anyone—including our government—is suffering, Christians ALWAYS offer prayer.

In the midst of Washington D.C. battling itself, Republicans versus Democrats over the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, I have noticed fervent requests for Christians to pray. Continue reading

Bring Your Bible To School Day!

Bring your Bible to school day

October 4 is Bring Your Bible To School Day! How fantastic is that?

The event, started by Focus on the Family in 2014,  is growing in popularity.  With every state in the nation involved, 8,000 students participated in 2014, 155,000 in 2015, and 356,000 in 2016, and the number for 2017 almost reached 500,000!  

Bring Your Bible To School Day started as a response to America’s schools continuing to forbid religious groups, Bibles, prayer, kneeling for God at football games, or even acknowledging Jesus in the classroom.  

This much needed event  is something Christian students may partake in openly. Continue reading

JESUS Is Calling YOU!

 

Jesus is calling you

Some people erroneously believe they must clean up their lives before coming to Jesus. They are sadly ashamed of their past: the dirty baggage they carry, the scars they created or endured, the hidden hurt laying on their hearts. They allow past sin to bind them.    

If you are one of those misinformed souls not familiar with the Good News, let me share with you the truth Jesus taught and lived by some 2000 years ago. I know 2000 years seems long in the human time frame, but have no worries –

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Continue reading

Thank-you, Jesus!

Thank you Jesus

When was the last time you thanked Jesus?

Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?

Or did you thank Him this morning, before those same feet hit the floor? Did you acknowledge allowing your eyes to see the sun rise; enabling you to make right any wrongs you committed yesterday?  (FYI, as I’m writing, I thanked Jesus for my MS.)

Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Continue reading

PRAY in Schools for PRAYER in Schools

Pray in schools or prayer in schools

60 years ago in 1958, Steven Engel from New York brought parents together and made the decision to sue the state over a state authorized prayer in public schools. That case made it to the United States Supreme Court in 1962, where they decided it violated the First Amendment because prayer represented establishment of religion. Engel won.

Then Pennsylvania, in 1963, decided on the case of Abington School District v. Schempp; a complaint made by Schemp to stop Bible readings in public schools. Schempp won.

Also in 1963 came the verdict of Madalyn Murray O’Hair against the Baltimore School System to ban school prayer labeling it “unconstitutional”. O’Hair won.

As a Christian, I believe government made the wrong decisions in all three of these cases, which directly affect core foundations for our children. Continue reading

God’s Blessings To Me!

We are to know God and make God known

Thank you for praying and worshiping with me these past five weeks! Only two more weeks to go in this series. I pray Holy Spirit has worked in your heart and helped you along your path, just as He helps me.

By now, you should have a clearer understanding of God’s plan for you. Something must be touching your heart that you should or should not do in you plan. This seven week series started as a way to share with you how I commune with God, walking in faith to get my Christian screenplay, THE PLAN, read and eventually produced. 

I hope my journey trusting God inspires you to start/continue trusting God, as we both seek our plan.

I prayed on THE PLAN before I wrote it, asking for discernment. I prayed for ten months while writing THE PLAN for God’s complete direction. Now, I continue to pray as I stand on His word sharing with you specific scriptures I read daily.  I believe in His blessing; expecting more that I can ask or image for THE PLAN. Continue reading

God, I Believe!

God is happy to direct us to where He wants us to go.  Our job is to commune with Him to find out.

God is happy to direct us to where He wants us to go.  Our job is to commune with Him to understand the direction.

It’s so awesome how worship and prayer everyday helps one grow closer to God!  Knowing God makes it is easier to make Him known to others. 

Communing with God is intimate, it’s not simply begging for answers. Remember, there is a difference in begging and believing when we pray.  To beg does not assure a heart for God; one could just be grabbing at straws. To believe specifies we know who God is; God’s power and His love.

Today is the fifth week of a seven week series, designed to worship God for who He is, thanking Him for all He has done and will do.  We are praying to better understand the plan He prepared for each of us.

God’s Promises To Me!

God's greatest promise is from Abram's Seed, all the nations of the earth would be blessed.

Let us continue to seek the perfect plan God made for each of us. 

If you are new to the blog, please read my last three posts:  “Christian Screenwriter Seeks God’s Plan“, “God Called Me!” and “God’s Plan For Me!”. We are in the middle of worshiping God as we thank Him for all He has done and will do as we seek His plan. Faithfully, we stand firm on God’s word, striving to follow His way.

We are never alone in the plan God made for each of us. He is right here, holding our hands as we press on. Thank Him for that comfort. Thank Holy Spirit for working in your heart as you understand God’s plan. Thank Jesus that no matter how life unfolds on earth, His death assures us perfect eternal peace.

Acknowledge God for His promises to you!

God’s Plan For Me!

Our God is so good! He thought of you in the beginning. He chose you and predestined you, so of course He will not leave you stumbling through life without a plan. Thank Him for that truth, and thank Holy Spirit for His help as you seek God's plan.

As we continue to seek the perfect plan God made for each of us. . .

Thank you for stepping out in faith! We are walking on water here! We are continuing to move outside our comfort zone as we seek God’s plan.  If you are new to the blog, I suggest you read my last two posts,  “Christian Screenwriter Seeks God’s Plan” and “God Called Me!”,  just to catch up.

We are on the third week of a seven week series, designed to worship God for who He is, to thank Him for all He has done and will do, praying to better understand the plan He prepared for us. Let’s begin by positioning our hearts to know God is awesome! Continue reading
