    For there is no distinction, for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:22 WEBIt is so easy for us to become used to having positions, titles, and levels in the workplace during our life and th...

    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey. People have a tendency to not want you to go where they have not been. Leaders cannot lead you, where they h...

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

Behind The Scenes

  • But he answered, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 ESV

    After months out of work, the days counted down until we were about to move out of our home. Meanwhile on the other side of town, someone else came into work each morning with a nagging feeling that they should have a pastor on staff, but put it off a little longer.

    Having been told that I would be in the ministry over twenty years ago, I had graduated seminary and then just waited. By now I had long since given up on that closed door and worked as a computer network tech until that suddenly dried up.

    Finally the day came when God insisted they hire a pastor. It was the day before we were preparing to leave the state. They posted a help wanted ad looking for a pastor with computer and website skills. As we were getting ready to leave home that morning, I had a sudden urge to check the job lists again. I saw the ad and within fifteen minutes of his posting, I had replied to it and we hit it right off. Suddenly I was a full-time pastor.

    After years of waiting, I was now in the ministry full time and it was all through very subtle promptings that would have been easy to miss. It was that nagging feeling that you should do something, for me, and for them. Don't give up when things take longer than they should. God is working behind the scenes and when everything lines up, it will happen.

    Prayer: Father I pray that you will give me a clear vision for my life and correct my path as needed. I submit to You. Take my life and use it Lord, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Good morning! For those who may have missed the Announcements, there is no Bible Study for this week, but we will continue as usual next week. We are taking a short "staycation" for our anniversary :). For those who would like to catch up, here is the link to the past chapters: RHM Bible Study

So I'm not just a stay at home Mother and grandmother, I'm a prayer warrior. I'm human, I make mistakes, but I pray, pray, pray. God is Good and he does answer Prayers, on his own time. That time is perfect. Thank you Lord for letting me be able to have a good mind and can pray for others. Amen

I needed to pray this prayer today. I'm 59, retired and disabled, and have no purpose or direction. I had to be reminded that if I keep seeking, asking, and knocking, God will guide me and put me where He wants me to be! Thanks once again, Pastor Dion!
