James 5:14-16 " Is anyone sick? He should call for the elders of the church and they should pray over him and pour a little oil upon him, calling on the Lord to heal him. 15 And their prayer, if offered in faith, will heal him, for the Lord will make him well; and if his sickness was caused by some sin, the Lord will forgive him.
16 Admit your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results."
Every war He wages He will win
I'm not backing down from any giant
'Cause I know how this story ends
Yes, I know how this story ends
For the battle belongs to You, Lord
Gonna worship my way through this battle
You take what the enemy meant for evil
And You turn it for good”
Our family celebrates each grand baby with a dedication service giving that baby to God, and asking for prayer for parents and family in raising this little one in a way that follows God. This Sunday our youngest, Raya (Jeff and Michelle's daughter), will be dedicated at Jeff's church in Minneapolis. After the service our family will gather at Jeff and Michelle's home to celebrate both Raya and four fall birthdays. We plan to go, Lord willing! (Chuck has been given travel oxygen along with hospice numbers if needed and we feel very prepared for the trip.)
We believe God has the perfect plan for Chuck's life and without at doubt know PARADISE is our goal in living with Jesus forever. Miracles happen to provide opportunity to share God's incredible power and to give Him glory when He decides this is for our best. Healing is in God's Presence, in God's ways, in God's timing, by God's choice, and for God's glory! Jeff and Jessie are organizing a little prayer service after the birthday celebrations Sunday afternoon. We claim Scripture and pray for God to work in mighty ways!
The story of the woman with 12 years of bleeding has prompted us to gather and to step out, find Jesus as we se in Mark 6: vs 30 "Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my robe?” 31His disciples said to him, “Look at this crowd pressing around you. How can you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” 32But he kept on looking around to see who had done it. 33Then the frightened woman, trembling at the realization of what had happened to her, came and fell to her knees in front of him and told him what she had done. 34And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over."
Our God is a God of miracles in many ways, and we trust He is using us to bring revival and to share His healing His way!
Miracles do happen and this song reminds us of the joy Jesus brings as we give Him our fears and trust Him:
Worship as we put our faith in God is a beautiful way to see life from God's perspective. Breakthroughs are times we learn more about Who God is in our relationship with Him. This song focuses on that:
Enjoy these songs to help worship Who our God is.. He has given us many miracles and we know a breakthrough can come in a sunrise or in hearts opening up to Jesus, and letting Him lead us to His PARADISE at His timing... and offering us confidence that, as Chuck says,"He has us in His Hands!"
While Jeff and Jon were here they shared Deuteronomy 30 with their Dad:
V19 “This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you LIFE and DEATH, blessings and curses. Now choose LIFE, so that you and your children may LIVE. V20 “and that you may love the Lord you God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your LIFE, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give your fathers.." Choose Life! We pray for life!
We know that the only answer to this battle is a Miracle... Northwoods paradise here or PARADISE in Heaven... We continue to claim we are in God's Hands! He never makes mistakes, and when we are weak He is strong as we cling to His Presence!
Today I see the trees are absolutely filled with colors of reds, oranges, yellows and greens. We live in a Northwoods paradise and it is truly beautiful! God wants us to see Him and trust Him, and we will take time to do just that! Join us and pray miracles.. Join us and cling to Jesus and His Holy Spirit, Who is here with us! Each day we pray for that miracle of healing to happen and, PARADISE or paradise, either is perfect for God is in control. “Be Still and Know I AM GOD” Psalms 46:10.
