Riding on a white horse

One of the things I continually asked God since my mom died was to give me a glimpse of her in heaven.I desperately needed to see her happy – she was so miserable, depressed and full of aches and pains the last two years and I haven’t seen her happy for a long-long time. I knew that if I could see how happy she is I would have peace. During these last few weeks God has spoken to me in a dream about this but I wanted more. Needed more. Just before I fell asleep last night, I asked God to make me dream about Him. I missed Him terribly and besides that, I love to dream about God of us just spending time together. It was still in the wake of the morning when God woke me up; I was so aware of His presence and of what He had shown me. I knew I was sleeping but I also know it was not a dream….God took me to a place where my mother was….and I saw her ! I clearly saw her face, a much younger version of her, and she was riding on a white horse beside Jesus.  She was not laughing and smiling and play…

Heaven is Your thrown

My Father, I know You are not too far to see You know everything that happens 2 me
Your presence is the most important part of my day
This is the reason why I pray

Make this world see-through so that I can clearly see You
Make me Your servant just like the angels in heaven are Your servants
Give me the ability to hear what You say
Your words will give me new energy for today

Help me to take the punch when people treat me unfairly, just like Jesus did when people treated Him unfairly Stop me from doing the wrong things
and keep me save from the evil king

You alone can do all that I have asked because You rule
Heaven is Your thrown and the earth Your footstool
In the darkest night Your beauty glows
For ever let it be so

In Jesus Name I pray

Could God watch us die?

But when Jesus heard it he said, "This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it." - John 11:4. Recently, a good friend preached on Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. With great passion, he drew a sharp distinction between worldly ways and the Kingdom of God. In reading how Jesus waited two full days after hearing the news that Lazarus was sick, my friend uttered, "Jesus did not react to situations or the words of men, but listened to and obeyed the Father." In reality, many of us saints would rush to help Lazarus, or at least be obsessed with comforting his sisters without delay. We rush to need. We rush to opportunity. We rush to significance. We rush at things that seem right. We rush along in the grooves of tradition. Yet it was clear that Jesus waited deliberately. John 11 implies that he did it because he loved Mary and Martha! "Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when …

We seek Your Forgiveness

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. 

We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good", but that is exactly what we have done.  We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot anti-abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.  Amen!" ~ a Prayer by Minister Joe Wri…
