Please pray!
Re-cap of tonight


This post will not be long. I need sleep and your prayers. I have to preach in the morning and in the last 24 hours I have caught a very nasty cold that makes it very hard to function. First there are the feelings of the cold but then when taking cold meds, you know how that makes a person feel. (Drowsy, out of it, etc.) I can't afford to have anything hindering me in the morning...I have such a word to deliver and I know the enemy has an assignment against it. Please, please push back with me in prayer. Have you ever taken Alka Seltzer cold medication? It's the most horrible stuff, absolutely disgusting to swallow but yet I am sitting here doing it because I am feeling so desperately bad. I had grandiose plans of what I was going to do in the few hours before the conference started and upon getting here, I immediately laid down and went to sleep for 3 hours til the service. All of you reading this in time ~ thanks for your prayers. I have a strong message to deliver on the role of women of God in the end times. A strategic message! Thank you for lifting me up.

Marsha spoke tonight and her message was, "The Wheel to Nowhere". Her hampsters were the inpiration for it. Great message. Ironically enough WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT IT AT ALL, her text for tonight is the same as mine for tomorrow. What a God thing.

Some points of her message:

  • We are called to be intentional women.

  • The right thing at the wrong time is still the wrong thing.

  • Some of us are convinced that God can't help us where we are at. The enemy tries to convince us.

  • The presence of God changes EVERYTHING.

  • Some of us just need a "honeymoon" with Jesus.

  • We believe there are certain issues in our lives that will keep us from being all God has called us to be.

  • Know -- whatever you are going through, it is not always going to be like this.

  • As soon as God speaks something into your life, the devil goes to work to try to denounce it and destroy it. Don't let him.

    Goodnight all...again, please keep me in prayer that this cold would not hinder what God wants to do and that I can speak boldly and clearly with no problems.

Well, I read this too late. You need Emergen-C packets. These are sold at Sams, Walmart and probablly publix, walgreens, etc. You should take about 3-4 today---it would have helped greatly last night, this morning, lunchtime and dinner. Its a booster supplement-ish. Get a big box from sams if Larry doesn't get some today. I started getting it and Im not supposed to get sick. I'd already had the headache,etc. It went away. So you need it with or without the medicine. You will definitely feel better. I know things went well this morning in spite of it. Praying for you, Sharon J

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
