Yesterday was such a different day than I’ve ever experienced in Christ Jesus. It lasted throughout the entire day. Much of this was explained to me as I just sat quietly and listened. When I woke up I called on the Scriptures more than I usually do in the morning. However, I was not particularly concerned over anything. I got up and noticed there was an unusually strong peace that God tells us about in Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” I was still questioning some of it when I left home for our Tuesday morning fellowship. As we began sharing we found out that all of us that were there were experiencing the same deep peace. We pretty much surmised that this was a level of the peace of God we haven’t experienced until now. It lasted all day and it was an awesome experience once we understood what was happening. We didn’t ask for it, it just came upon us. It certainly was beyond our understanding and such a wonderful blessing. As the Scripture in Philippians said, it was a peace that we couldn’t understand, so we just sang and praised the Lord. We had no worries about crucial things that were trying to distract us. We truly felt we were experiencing a little bit of Heaven. He had our concerns in HIS hands and it was comfort to us to be cared for in such a way. This Scripture came our way as we were experiencing this peace in a new way: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength,” (Isaiah 30:15) and “The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.” (Isaiah 32:17). We have been asking God for this but we knew that His timing was most important. When we had given everything to Him and we least expected it God blessed us all with this peace when we woke up that morning. Do you need that kind of blessings? Remember, you cannot make it happen. It’s time to relax and let Him have it and just wait and see what will happen if we trust Him. Please give it all to God and then be still. “Be still, and know that I am God; (Psalm 46:10). “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” (Ephesians 3:20)

I pondered many a day wondering what I am to share with you all. The Holy Spirit has been teaching me some great lessons. They’ve come so quickly that I was unable to make a selection of what and how to share. I am learning so much so quickly. The lesson I’m learning is to “be still and know”. I do admit that I can hardly wait to share what the Holy Spirit has revealed as it been some time since I have written the blog. I have the opportunity to entertain Christ in my life at the breakfast table each morning. In my spirit, I see Him as He sits with me, having such a gentle look on His face as He is smiling at me. It’s as if He’s saying, “Do you know how much I love you and the great plans I have for anyone that will be still and listen?” This has been continually coming to me and I must admit that I haven’t been as still as I should. He doesn’t condemn me but gently waits on me to be able to receive it all. Christians have a great opportunity to give out the love of Jesus, and that love covers it all. I was led to go back to my journals and found a word given to me at the beginning of 2017. It read, “There is nothing that will occur in your life from troubles or sharing that love cannot cure.” What God was telling me is that there is no problem or concern that couldn’t be solved through love. Many times that type of love does not come because we are judging or not understanding the person or situation. If anyone comes to us burdened down with cares, we are not obligated to solve it on our own. God says He is the vindicator for us. All we have to do is to share, comfort and love that individual in the name of Jesus for His glory. We are not to judge or correct them, only use the Word that God gives us through the Holy Spirit. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God”. That entire chapter in Psalms talks about everything shaking and yet in the midst of it all, God says to just be still. In 1 Kings 19, Elijah was running from Jezebel. He ran into a cave to rest for the night, longing to hear from God. The Lord asked him to come out of the cave to hear from Him. As he stood on the mountain, there was a great wind, an earthquake and then fire. But God’s voice wasn’t in any of them. However, when God began to speak to Elijah it was a still small voice that gave him the instruction. Do you need some answers in your life? Are you broken and can’t seem to find the way out? The solution is just so simple. I’ve found out that during these trials I needed Jesus ever so much. As I searched the scriptures, and it seems that over and over He is saying “Be still and wait and you will see and know the truth and the truth will set you free.” It almost sounds too easy. However when I be still and quiet my busy mind the answers do come. It happens when we humble ourselves and, by faith, know the answer is on the way. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). Open your heart, believe, and trust God to bring it to pass and He will in His timing!

Recently, there have been many tragic things come to our Prayer Team’s attention for prayer. We have a prayer meeting at my home on Sunday nights and have seen many miracles through the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One of the prayer requests involved a beautiful one year old girl. They took her to University of Iowa Hospital which is Iowa’s equivalent of Mayo Clinic. A few days after she was there they determined she had shaken baby syndrome. She could not see or move and was comatose. After many examinations they told her parents she was brain dead and they needed to think about pulling life support from her. So many people were praying for her and God heard all those prayers. Before they could discontinue life support her blood count had to be down to 20, but it never came down lower than 29. What a miracle! They did more tests and found one side of her brain was alive. (Yet another miracle!) The doctors wanted to induce her into a deeper coma but they told her parents that they would not be able to bring her out of this this coma. THEY SAID SHE WOULD HAVE TO FIGHT HER WAY OUT OF THIS ONE. We continued to pray. It was not that long after that prayer that she did come out of it. We prayed that she would fight this battle in her own strength and she did. (One more miracle!) What a little fighter! Recently, they moved her to a children’s rehabilitation center that was closer to home, a place where she would receive more attention to help her with recovery. The doctors said she was blind and would never see again. They now believe she has sight in one eye and her parents say she is now trying to communicate with them. She is sitting up with a little help. Praise God! Her parents have not left her side and continue to be supportive to all that this little one has made. The journey this precious little girl has been on has taught all of us about fighting the fight that Jesus made possible for us at the cross. We are fighting the good fight of faith for this little one. We are all fighting the good fight in many ways. Can we hang on and remind God of His promises? We are praying that this little one will not get weary and give up the fight. Are you in situations that need you to stand up and pray what God has promised? The purpose of these trials in the first place is to test our faith. We have to fight to not let these trials weaken our faith. It is time to FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT the good fight of faith. We must stay strong and fight! We must not allow the enemy to steal our strength and the power of the Word. This is a strong message. When we ask Jesus into our hearts we are given everything we need to emerge strong from any battle. (2 Peter 2-4). God has shown us how. If a little one year old girl can fight her way back from where she began with prayer support, then we certainly can fight. James 1: 2-4 tells us, “Count it all joy when you face trials of many kinds. For the testing of your faith develops perseverance and perseverance must finish its work, that you be complete and mature lacking no good thing.” He is making us ready so we can get through anything in Christ Jesus our Lord. So…..we must get up because NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR US! FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH AND BELIEVE IN THE VICTORY IT BRINGS! Blessings to you all.

I’ve been away from the blog for quite some time. However I would not replace the difficult times with an easy coast in lifestyle or ministry. There were many lessons learned and a new wake up call for service for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There were many opportunities for learning and changing my thoughts and lifestyle. I’ve been praying for more of my Jesus and learning about being still and waiting on Him. New things have been experienced that were allowed to reveal my thoughts. This is a busy time for us at Jesus’ Right Hand. We’ve had much cooperation from so many sources, however the Lord gets all the glory. Just recently my phone rang at home and saw my deceased husband’s full name on the caller ID. I picked it up hesitantly and it was a call from a worker at Jesus’ Right Hand. Some of what I have learned is to be still and wait in order to clear my mind and trust God. Many times it’s not easy to think on good things because we get our eyes on the problem instead of the answer. We always need to strive to be part of the answer and not part of the problem. I was told recently that my obituary was in the Des Moines newspaper. I could see the mistake because this person looked like me one time in my life and our names and initials were the same and we were both from New Virginia. There have been many things that have come my way and I know it is only a testing. The only permanent victory is in Jesus and His delivering Word and price He paid on the cross for us. Have you been tested beyond what you thought you could bear? These are the Scriptures that helped me make it through. Please read the following Scriptures and feel the peace of God begin to flood your soul: Proverbs 18:20-21, Proverbs 3:5-8, James 1:2-4, Phillipians 4:4-9, Romans 5:1-8 and Matthew 5:1-20. There are many more but these Scriptures are a good beginning. There is nothing too big for God. He is the God of the impossible! Now the final word that tells He has already given us what we need is found in 2nd Peter 1:3-4, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” I pray it will not be as long until we post the next blog, however I’ve been called to do this today and I need to obey. There is always a time to obey, and we just have to do it when we have help from Him. We are learning so much so fast and we need to be still to sort it all out. Blessings to you all in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

This morning when my feet hit the floor my mind started thinking about the things that needed to be done today. My usual routine is to sit on the edge of the bed praising Him for getting me through another night. This assures me He is not done with me yet and my destiny has not been fulfilled or I would be home with Jesus. I then remembered “In Him I live and move and have my being” (Acts 17:28). It is His plan for my life not my plan. If I really want Jesus to handle my day I need to be still and listen. I surely will not get lasting help doing it the world’s way. That is only temporary. I’ve had the opportunity to share with others that if we don’t have peace in a situation then it is NOT of God. The Bible tells us, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7). If we have lost our peace, we need to go back in our minds and see where it was that we lost our peace. The Bible tells us that Jesus died on the cross for us. It says “The chastisement for our peace was upon Him” (Isaiah 53:5). The entire 53rd chapter of Isaiah is about who Jesus is and what He did for us. Everything is covered, anything that applies to us now or what will we ever have need of is taken care of by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. However, we still try to work everything out for ourselves. If Jesus took care of everything on the cross then when do we dwell on the negative instead of honoring our Jesus? When have those thoughts or attitudes what we are really saying is what He did for us was not enough. We probably wouldn’t actually say that, however our actions show we don’t quite understand in fullness what He did for us forever. We have to believe what He said is true and that He has our best interests at heart. It is so plain in Jeremiah 29:11 when God tells us, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. The last scripture is in 2nd Peter 1:3-4: “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” That is good stuff right now if you are stressed and worried. Read what the Bible says how we can escape them. May blessing after blessing start and keep on in your life with God only through Jesus Christ our Lord.
