The author of this paper became interested in this tragic event; because he was a junior in high school when this tragedy took place. It was the worst catastrophe of its kind. This catastrophe was not the result of weather or as a result of war. It was the result of a twisted religious predator who used religion as a way to destroy the lives of his flock. This religious leader came from Indianapolis, Indiana the…Continue

It has been said many ways, so one more will not hurt. We seek God to give us....whatever the case may be. I have said over again and again, it is a “heart thing.” The Lord wants our hearts. Time and again people have told me, they have given their hearts to God. I understood, yet some did not fully get what I was trying to say. Not their fault, mine. It has been my inability to share completely what I meant. Lord willing until now. I am Blessed! I am Blessed coming…Continue
Dear Heavenly Father, I love you today and am grateful for all of Your goodness to me. Please forgive me when I have not spoken kindly of others. Help me to guard my mouth from speaking any kind of evil. May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your site. Lord, I cancel all words that I have spoken that have not agreed with the Word of God. I also cancel all evil words that have been spoken against me, my family or my ministry. Lord, please forgive those…Continue

A Story that will Inspire you to Pray! James 4.2 – You do not have because you do not ask God.
It is no secret…Continue
Trying to understand
my place in this complicated world,
my soul was sorely troubled -
And He whispered to me softly.
Trying to comprehend
my divine purpose within His Family,
my desires were unfocused -
And He whispered to me gently.
By giving myself completely to Him,
I found absolute abundance
that's sustained by Salvation's foundation -
And He whispered to me quietly...
"Well done My faithful servant, enter into My…

Beyond the lost days of manna,
all nutrition I'll ever need
was given to me at birth
with the implantation of spiritual seed.
An enabling inner spark,
combined with soul's hungering emptiness,
allowed me to find divine connection
and a path towards Your Holiness.
Thank You Lord for Your Daily Bread
that feeds my spirit and sustains my soul;
for feasting on Your Word everyday
is the best way to be kept…

So, it was almost five o’clock in the afternoon, and I was driving northbound on the “Five” to meet my daughter for dinner. I rounded the highway bend that boasted the Pacific Ocean’s drama on my left . . . and then immediately on my right, came upon a sight I shall carry with me forever. Twas a bright, yes, I dare say even, dark-banded rainbow stretched right before me,…Continue

The Heavens Opened: Part 18
By Anna Rountree
The Children’s offering:
An angel began to play a simple melody on a recorder as hundreds of children came before the throne. Angels and the redeemed carried the very young in their arms. They led other children by their hands.
The children took small bouquets of flowers to Jesus and to the Father. Jesus kissed each child, and both He and the Father talked with them. Huge hands of…Continue

I have prayed for a forgiving heart, a way to learn to deal with the anger and resentment that comes with being unable to forgive. Although I tell myself that I have forgiven and moved on certain things happen which trigger memories which brings back the anger and resentment. I want to be able to wholeheartedly forgive and be able to look at those memories triggered and smile about them with no anger and resentment. I guess what I really want is to be at peace and be able to see each twist…Continue

Contentment seems elusive these days. We live in a world that makes us feel constantly harried, a bit like the woeful creature in the arcade game, ‘Whack-a-mole’. Sometimes though, we just need to hit the ‘reset’ button.

Fields are white for harvest
with souls rotting on the vines;
graft them into the Kingdom now,
while there is still time.
Fullness of Life's abundance is available,
when connected to the True Vine;
but how to reach others when -
Christians don't heed the warning signs?
Workers may not be plentiful,
yet, faithful ones always find the fruit;
productive lives are highly visible
from employing Principles most astute.
