This poem was written by a young woman who met Jesus while she was in prison. The simplicity of her child-like faith blessed me so much I asked her for a copy and she gave me permission to share it with others.
A MAN I NEVER KNEW
Written by Mona McCall in CRC Women’s Prison, 1993
I never knew a man – a man I couldn’t see.
A man that says I could be everything, I ever dreamed I could be.
A man that takes away everything, the biggest of my fears,
A man that says He counts not just one… but all my tears.
A man that gives me sunshine, and showers me with rain,
A man that holds me close – When my heart is filled with pain.
It was hard at first, for me to trust… Trust a man I couldn’t see.
It was hard for me to understand – How could this man love me? Continue reading
“There is ALWAYS a way!” declares Dr. Charles Majors as he paces energetically across the stage.
“There are three types of people,” he explains.
“The quitters who blame everyone and everything – other than themselves, and go nowhere.”
“The dreamers who work hard, believe and fight on, time and time again, until one too many traumas, disappointments and tragedies cause them to give up on their dreams and they stop.”
“And then there are the few who no matter what trauma, disappointment, or delay of their dreams they encounter, they never quit. These people fight on and believe – THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY! And these are the ones who find that way!” Continue reading
Have you ever faced the LION of FEAR?
It’s ferocious. Deadly. Real.
The moment my husband Mike was diagnosed with deadly cancer – both FEAR and FAITH – declared war in my heart.
FAITH – God is greater than any cancer diagnosis! God heals! Jesus loves me!
FEAR – But… all the people who I have ever fought for in faith and prayer to be healed of cancer, died. Continue reading
No other word in the English language strikes more instant, horrifying and mind numbing fear than the word “cancer” coming out of your doctor’s mouth.
On Thursday, September 17, 2015 – my husband Mike and I went into the Emergency Room of San Bernardino Comm Hospital expecting to have Mike’s gallbladder removed – in and out, home the same day – no big deal, right?
Instead, after a series of tests, Mike was given a “cholangiocarcinoma” cancer diagnosis – with a six month death sentence attached to it!
SPIRITUAL CRISIS occurs when the value system of our life, the essence of our identity, what we believe at the core of our being to be true, proves false.
Spiritual crisis is the outcome of faith disintegrated.
But faith in what? This is the key.
Sometimes God orchestrates spiritual crisis because He wants us to understand we are trusting in something other than Him. And, often we are.
But what happens to the heart of a faithful Christian, one dedicated to loving and serving God with all of our heart – when it seems as though, God Himself is the one letting us down? This is the toughest kind to get through. Continue reading
God desires to spare us from unnecessary heartache, loss and pain – so He designs warning dreams to expose evil and temptation in our life.
Jesus taught us to pray – “Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil,” (Matt 6:13). Warning dreams are a major way God answers this prayer!
Read this warning dream – and its interpretation to see how this works. Our dreamer, Patty, has confirmed the dream’s interpretation – and has made a choice that will guide her into safety for her own life – and the lives of those who look up to her in Jesus. Continue reading
UNDERSTANDING GOD’S NIGHT-TIME PARABLES
God created the mystical conduit of dreams in order to communicate with people 24/7.
God actually fashions dreams – specifically for the dreamer!
“In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, God opens people’s ears and seals the matter…” (Job 33:15).
What has God fashioned for you lately?
What is He whispering to you while you slumber on your bed?
- Is He calling you higher?
- Is He revealing your destiny?
- Is He warning you of an impending disaster?
- Is He showering you with love, encouragement and comfort?
- Is He revealing issues in your soul that hinder His love & healing?
- Is He empowering you in the battle to overcome the schemes of the evil one?
God does all of this and more, through our dreams…
Yeshua, our Passover Lamb, has passed out of death into everlasting life! The ‘first fruit’ of the living – out from among the dead!
This is the joy we remember and celebrate during Passover, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday.
When I asked the Lord what He desired for me to write in this final blog of my “Passover Series,” I heard two words; “honor” and “hope.”
Then, the Holy Spirit spoke these words to me;
“My hope does not disappoint. My hope reveals what is – the ‘solid’ of eternity. My hope is tangible substance – The tangible reality of heaven released on the earth. In Me, you are HOPE RELEASED into the earth.” Continue reading
Today Is Good Friday, the day all of Christendom remembers and honors Jesus’ suffering and death upon the Cross of Calvary.
Today is also Erev Pesach – the Eve of Passover. The very night that Yeshua (Jesus) celebrated Passover with His disciples and instituted the New Covenant in His body and blood (1Cor 11:23-25).
TODAY IS THE PERFECT UNION OF “THE ONE NEW MAN!” AS BOTH SACRED HOLIDAYS UNITE IN CELEBRATION!
TODAY is the perfect day of celebration for the One New Man (Eph. 2:11-16). Messianic Jews and Gentiles – united – celebrating the Passover Seder. Both groups as one, celebrating and remembering our Blessed Redeemer Yeshua, our Passover Lamb.
Just now as I wrote the word TODAY for the fourth time – I am reminded of this warning, “Today, if you hear His voice, harden not your hearts,” (Hebrews 3:15; 4:7).
TODAY is a new day of revelation that Jews are to live as Jews – even after receiving Jesus as Messiah. And, Gentiles are not called to be Jews. Both are one in Jesus. Together we celebrate the biblical feasts of the Lord as laid out by God in the Torah. Continue reading
The “Madness” of March is Real – And it is not due to college basketball season, or spring sales!
It is due to the spiritual energy and contention of “mocking” that increases in the spirit realm, just prior to Passover every year.
It took me some years to recognize this March pattern. When I saw I had recorded the word “CRASHED” in both my 2012 and 2013 journals, on the exact same date of March 12th – it was time to seek God for answers!
And answers He has begun to reveal!
March is the month when the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness fight for spiritual advancement on the earth! Continue reading
