    Brothers, I don't regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13 WEBI was at a very dark p...

    Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIVAfter coming out of the grocery store, I found that I had parked way out in the parking lot and did not really feel like taking the buggy all the way back to the store. I saw a few other carts nearby that people had left in the parking lot....

    For you don't delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. O God, you will not despise a broken and contrite heart. Psalms 51:16 WEBWhen I first came to the Lord, I was so zealous that I wanted to make up for everyt...

Soul Chaser

  • He told them this parable. Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldnt leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it? Luke 15:3 WEB

    I had a very vivid dream one night where a person who had attended our church was hurt and had huge sores on their body, but I had a salve that would heal them. When I rubbed the salve over their sores, they were so touched that someone cared, that they began weeping.

    Confused about the dream, but noting that I had not seen them in a while, I decided that I would invite them out to dinner. They agreed and over a long dinner I learned that they had been hurt over a simple misunderstanding. No one involved meant anyone harm, but they had withdrawn thinking the worst. I knew everyone involved and was able to explain, pray for them, and it brought healing to the relationship. They returned to church and everything was fine.

    God does not toss people away. He actively seeks out the lost and the wounded and He will use you to do it. You are His body on the earth. He will heal people through you, speak through you, but you have to go. Also, God does not want to lose anyone, but we all have a free will and can push Him away and those that He sends to us. Those that He sends, do not have to go at all. Truly the harvest is great, but the laborers are few (Matt. 9:37).

    Let God love you, and through you. Dont let the one that He has placed on your heart slip through the cracks. Work with Him to bring in the harvest. Go after the lost and the wounded when He brings them to your remembrance. He will back you up.

    Prayer: Father show me the lost and give me Your words to comfort them. Help me see them through Your eyes. Guide me, teach me, use me, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Good morning, RHM family, Sylvia here :). Just FYI, today is Dion''s birthday, and so if you would like to wish him a happy birthday here, this would be the time! Hope you all have a very blessed day :)!

David and Dianna Wyles
David and Dianna Wyles Amen!! Thank you! Hit it on the nail again!! He does guide me to lost people... yesterday that lost person was my oldest daughter... (she's a twin, but born first) She was very stressed as things have been financially ruff for a minute for her and her family. Their car broke down and they are struggling. I feel a little helpless as we just get by also. My daughters husband lost his dad a couple years ago and has not really recovered...we have watched him slip deeper and deeper into depression. He has no motivation and it is taking it's toll on my daughter and I'm sure to a lessor extent on his children ( my grandbabies) (Here you see the ever protective Grandma bear come out in me...) I can only hope the words coming out of my, and my husbands mouth was from God and incouraging to her as we definately prayed over her situation, asked her to pray  ( she said she has been),& talked about some different options for her. Will you join me in prayer her her please? Please pray healing for her family, for financial security, for peace and faith in God that things will always turn out ok,for strength and patience as she prays for her husband to return to her from his deep state of depression, for healing for her as this has effected her emotionally in a very big way and I can see the pain in her eyes and the hopelessness. I dont want to see her marriage fail but I want her to have the strength and self esteem enough to do what she has to do to keep her and those grandbabies of mine from drowning in his self pitty if that makes sence... please pray he will get the help he needs. Thank you

Susan Smith
Susan Smith Happy Birthday Pastor Dion...I read your posts daily and Thank God for you and your ministry everyday.  This is about the only Christian fellowship I have right now.  I have a job where I work almost every Sunday so I'm unable to attend traditional church services.  Your online church here has become my church.  I do miss the in person fellowship of a local church, however there is a history there with some old hurts, and unresolved issues that keep my husband and myself away from our old church as well.  Even if I can't go on Sundays I wish he would, but I don't seem to have the right words to motivate him to go without me when I'm working he uses it as an excuse not to go because I'm at work.  Please pray for us, I'm not sure, should we try somewhere new or try and go back, and which ever way.....go back or somewhere new....my husband needs to hear from God to move on.  Love and Prayers to the Refreshing Hope Family!  and Thank You!!!  Susan
