EMBRACING Heaven is for Real! Heaven is for Real is about a child who almost dies from a burst appendix in 2003…or does he actually die? According to the doctors, his vital statistics proved he was alive during the three minutes he left his body and visited Jesus in heaven! Colton Burpo was almost four years old. He was too young to have been trained to lie about the many things he saw in heaven. Child-like innocence comprehended and recalled those three minutes as a longer experience, for during that time Colton sat on Jesus’ lap, played with his sister (who had died after a 2-month pregnancy but had grown into childhood in heaven), watched his father in the future fighting the devil with a sword, got to know his grandfather who now looked like a young father-figure, and saw his parents grieving for him in two other rooms in the hospital. He described Jesus’ hair, the garment he wore, the blue sash across his chest, and a face that was not captured by any past artist…his fath
  FRUITS OF FASTING   You can read in the Bible how fasting produced happiness and good fortune for many people like Daniel, Moses, David, Paul, Peter, (many others) and Jesus, himself. I have been fortunate to experience just that. I fasted for three weeks before my church’s yearly 21 days of fasting in 2024 to bring in the new year. I had been slacking off on my prayer life and had not been hearing from my God for several months. I felt empty and unloved. He had spoken to me clearly during and after the last two years’ fasts. I wanted to hear from Jesus again, so for those three weeks before our church fast started, I acclimated myself to fasting. That way, when I began the 21 days of church fasting, I would be in a good routine to fast properly…my body would be used to the lack of food, and my mind would be focused on prayer and worship. It worked! I heard from God the 2 nd night of the 21 days! Not everyone hears from the Holy Spirit in the same way. But, during my fast two years
                                                                WHOA, GOD! You are throwing ideas to write about so fast at me…I never have time to complete them all! I have posted many power points and activities on FREE BOOKS FROM JESUS, but every time I hear my pastors’ sermons; see something that sparks an idea; read my devotionals, the Bible, a good book or magazine; You give me a new idea. No matter what I am doing, I have to find a piece of paper or to sit at my computer and start writing down Your ideas. I shouldn’t complain. I love Your ideas! I get so excited…my mind goes much faster than my fingers! I lose many ideas because I can’t keep up with Your suggestions. I have written notes all over my office! I love it! Please keep them coming! I’ll get most of Your ideas down some day. I just need time to finish them! I have begun: ·          42 Christian power points ·          11 fictional stories ·          1 poem ·          Numerous blog ideas Bear with
  HOW I KNOW GOD IS TALKING TO ME This morning at 8:00 I attended our church’s yearly first day of fasting. My first fasting encounter two years ago was a totally new learning experience! Everyone fasts differently. Some choose something to give up for a certain number of days. Some give up one meal per day and spend that time in prayer. Some actually just live on liquids…but that should take place with a doctor’s advice unless it’s just for a day or two. Fasting is basically becoming “One with God” through Praise and Prayer . But today’s experience isn’t about the fast. It’s about God verifying that I have really been listening to Him talk to me the last two years! Whether I took His advice is not the point, either! During the fast of 2022, I was praying to Him when all of a sudden there was movement behind my closed eyelids. Now, I’m not saying everyone will have this same experience; but to me it was a revelation…I was sure God was making those movements happen. I wasn’t a
                    DON’T GIVE UP! Somewhere, someone had the idea to demoralize the human population by introducing biological warfare. We are in a war! Covid, flu, viruses…they are killing off our population. Satan is at work. Are you going to let Satan rule your life? I am not saying that you should not take precautions against bacterial infections. It only makes sense to wear a mask, avoid crowds, and stay home when you are sick. Duh! What I am encouraging is your attitude! If you have to be alone during your infection, do everything you can to stay encouraged and happy . The Bible can help you. Read the New Testament and see how so many people stayed pumped up with Jesus’ leadership. You can expect love, compassion, encouragement, and a future in heaven with no pain, no anguish, and no tears. Satan’s future is a horrible death when Jesus returns. Don’t let the devil lead you down the wrong path. Stay focused on Jesus’ p
