  • Prayer Warriors, the world needs you

    In 2011 we returned home to Virginia Beach. The 10-hour trip became a 15-hour marathon, but, for once, I could not complain.  
    Most of the ‘delay’ was powerful God-time – we went up on the mountain to listen to God speak through his oracle.

    As the story goes, at a synagogue in Eastern Europe when the Shema (the prayer that starts out, “Hear O Israel, the Lord is one…”) was recited each week, half the congregation stood with hands raised and the other half remained seated.
    Although it might not have been a problem for this congregation, it was because each half insisted that their way was the synagogue’s tradition and, therefore, the right way.
    So, each week the standers stood and yelled at the sitters to stand up and the sitters sat and yelled at the standers to sit down.

  • The wisdom of my Father

    By Don Powell,  Gideons    

    Proverbs 1:8 states: “My son,  hear the instructions of thy Father, and forsake not kthe law of thy Mother”.

  • Grace Notes

    Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.
    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit.
    The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting -- we each look for different things in a church.
    Years ago, I famously (or infamously) chose a church to visit one Christmas Eve based solely on the looks of the building.

    Lately, I’ve reconnected with a young woman I met years ago.
    In the past month or so she has rediscovered God. She said that for many years she hadn’t believed, or maybe she believed but had put God in a back closet somewhere and shut the door.
    But recently, she opened the door to him and she contacted me to tell me about it. Ever since then she and I have been having conversations about faith and prayer and the love of God.

  • Powerful words, how will you use yours?

    I am often reminded by God to think before you speak. A great policy for anyone. We sometimes pretend that words don’t mean much, but they are incredibly powerful! In the Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel, God wanted to halt their building project.
    The book of Genesis tells us that they were building a tower so high that they began to be filled with pride. To stop the project, God took away their most important tool. Not the hammers or chisels, He took away their ability to communicate.
