Arise and go down to the Potter's House, and there I will cause you to hear my words.

Welcome to my blog!!! May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you and keep you under the shadow of His wings; May you be enlightening by His Spirit of wisdom and revelation through the knowledge of His word; Today, may you know that the creator of the universe will move heaven and earth on your behalf, because He loves you with an everlasting love!

The Work of Our Hands

For the first time in my life I was left speechless....No words can describe tonight's emotions. Outside the Jesus House there are four gun shots, seconds later we are praying for a 19 year old boy who was shot in the face and shoulder, the neighborhood was in an uproar. Mothers wandering aimlessly looking for their children as fear tries to grip the heart of the residents. I will say this, in the midst of it all I saw the Lord Jesus Christ! I'm not sure what tomorrow looks like for West Bloomington, but I know there is a God in heaven and He has placed a remnant of people filled with His compassion and are not ashamed nor afraid of this darkened world. I am so proud of my Jesus House family, and the neighbors who came not only to the meeting tonight, but were not afraid to get involved. Tonight, I saw a community come together, and it was and is a beautiful sight. There is not a quick fix nor an easy solution to the problems that lie ahead of us, but there is a promise from my God; Every where are feet shall tread, He has given us the land, and He will bless the work of our hands....Jesus House will be present at Friendship Park! I challenge every Christian in Bloomington/Normal, I challenge every Pastor in West Bloomington to join us. It only took twelve men to turn the world upside down. God looks for a willing heart. Are you willing? Many signs and wonders were done through the hands of the disciples. What are you doing with your hands? The hands of my husband held the face of a young man who was just shot in the face. The world will never believe in your God if you do not get out side your comfort zone and do something with your hands. Get involved. Would you like to go on a mission trip? Jesus House welcomes you to join them in the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, who went about doing good, healing all who were sick and oppressed of the devil. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. It's every day people. Every day these kids are dying not knowing Jesus. What will you say when you stand before God? Jesus said, when you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I Am He….and you attend church, you hear a good song, and say, “What a great sermon!”….and still do nothing. Jesus said, if you come close to Me, I will come close to you, and you attend Bible study, and talk about it….and still do nothing. Jesus said, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto myself; we hear of missionaries who risk their lives for the good of others sharing the gospel of Jesus, and we say, “O what a great work!”…and still we do nothing. Many sit, eat, and drink never giving attention to the rest of the world. Self absorb, thinking their ok when Jesus said, Search the scriptures and you think you have eternal life, yet, they speak of me….and still you do not know me. In the day of judgment when Jesus will separate the sheep from the goats He will not ask what church you attend, He will not ask if you’ve been baptized. He will say in that day, “What YOU have done unto the least of these YOU have done it unto me.” Quote from Doctor Reverend David Lee - Grace Home, Taipei, Taiwan.

The Light of Jesus Christ Shines Brightest in the Dark

O' how I wish I would of known Jesus at a young age. I did not. Yet, I am so thankful I did not grow up within the formalism of main stream Christianity of today. There has never been anything easy and nice about my life, nor has there ever been anything easy and nice about the calling and ministry the Lord has given me. I will say this, I am who I am by the grace of God, and I live in a fallen world filled with broken people. Life is messes, and I wouldn't want to live any other way. Jesus seeks the lost, He heals the broken, His name is a refuge, a strong tower. We, as not just "believers" of Christ, but "followers" of Christ need to shine the light of Jesus to a darkened world, and not be afraid of sin. The gospel of Mark paints a beautiful picture of this in Chapter One. Jesus was preaching in the synagogues, and casting out devils, now that I find interesting. Anyway, A leper came to Him, begging Him as he kneeled down saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean” and immediately Jesus is moved with compassion, He stretches out His hand and touches him, this man with the flesh eating disease Jesus touches him and then Jesus says to him, “ I am willing’ be healed” …Jesus touched him first, and then He healed him….…saints of God, ought we not to be about our Father’s business? Seeking the lost, healing the sick, and casting out devils? Do not be afraid of the sin of others or their sickness. O’ how I long for the boldness of the Holy Spirit to rise within us, to let His love and compassion move us to a place were we are not afraid of others who might look different, speak in a language not so pleasing to the modern day Christian ears…..O’ How I desire to see Jesus high and lifted up for all the world to know His everlasting love, and receive His everlasting gospel. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven!
