JESUS IN ME: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion

September 17, 2019

To them God has chosen to make known . . . the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27

Over the past two years loneliness has knocked on my door. After forty-nine years of marriage, I had just begun adjusting to the new normal of widowhood when my beloved father moved to Heaven. Six months after his funeral, I was diagnosed with breast cancer that involved surgery, chemotherapy and radiation that meant months at home, sidelined from ministry. Yet only a sovereign God could have arranged my life’s events so that they coincided with the writing of my new book on the Holy Spirit, Jesus In Me. I have truly experienced in a very fresh, personal way His constant companionship.

My experience has confirmed in a fresh way that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, a dove, or an ecstatic feeling. He is not an optional extra in the Christian life…He is a divine necessity. He is One who prays for me, guides me, comforts me, loves me, and will never leave me. I could not have made it through the past few years without Him.

At a time when 22% of Americans feel left out, isolated, and alone; when loneliness has been described as an epidemic among millennials, I yearn to introduce the Holy Spirit to those who have not heard of Him, or who have heard of Him, yet don’t really know Him. When Jesus promised not to leave us alone like orphans, He was promising the divine antidote to loneliness—the Holy Spirit.

If you, or someone you know, have ever felt lonely…or unloved…or have felt no one truly understands…then please accept this invitation to pre-order my book, Jesus in Me. As part of our online community, we pray that you will take this opportunity to discover the Holy Spirit by personal experience as One who loves you, understands you, and is your constant companion.

With gratitude and every blessing.

Pray with me for a moment.

So Father in Heaven we worship you as one who is light. You have revealed yourself to us through the pages of our Bible and through the Lord Jesus Christ. And we thank you for the dear Holy Spirit whom you sent down in Jesus name… who would open our minds to understand the Scriptures and to understand the things of God. So we ask now your blessing on this book as it goes forth. I pray your blessing on each one who reads it that they would take it to heart, that they would come to know you in a fresh way, that they would learn to rely on you and depend on you and embrace you in the Person of the Holy Spirit as they never have before. Thank you that you have not left us like orphans but you have given us the Holy Spirit to be a constant companion. And we pray these things for your blessing in the name of Jesus and for His glory. Amen.

A Miracle for Father’s Day

June 14, 2019

Do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.  Mark 13:11

Have you ever had the opportunity to share the Gospel or tell someone about Jesus, but you didn’t take it because you felt you weren’t prepared? One of my reoccurring nightmares is to find myself on a stage with people looking at me, yet I have no prepared message to give.

Urgent Prayer for Venezuela

February 23, 2019 

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone…    1 Timothy 2:1

Yesterday my brother, Franklin, invited me to participate in a telephone prayer call for Venezuela. He described his increasing burden for the people there that stretches back over the last several years as 3.4 million people have walked out of the country. The socialist regime has reduced Venezuela, once the wealthiest country in Latin America, to less than third world status.

RAISING HALLELUJAH

February 4, 2019

Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army…as they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men…who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.    2 Chronicles 20:21-22

While praying with my two daughters following my fifth chemo treatment, God seemed to indicate He had healed me. Cleansed me. Removed cancer from me. I pondered in my heart what I believe He had said. The numbers from my blood draw before the sixth treatment were all remarkably good. So after my sixth treatment, I began questioning whether or not I should continue chemo if, in fact, I was already healed. The weakness and weariness have been debilitating. The side-effects have been daunting. I did not want to continue treatments if they were unnecessary.  One morning I decided to pray specifically, asking God to confirm from His Word whether or not I was to continue chemo treatments if I was already healed.
