Hope in the midst of decay and destruction

Hope in the midst of decay and destruction

A couple of decades ago, the forests of Colorado began to be infected with beetles that were killing trees.  The beetles are small, less than an inch in size.  So small that it would seem unlikely they could take out such large trees and entire swaths of forest.  Yet, over the years we have seen…

Leaving a Legacy of Love

Leaving a Legacy of Love

Wednesday was a hard day.  I struggled from the moment I awoke.  After spending a night of tossing and turning, I could hardly bring myself to look at my phone.  While I wanted to check the time, I didn’t want to be greeted by unwanted news.  The day before, we were informed that one of our…

Living Right-side Up in an Upside Down World

I’ve been told that I’m not normal.  And it’s true.  For as long as I can remember, I haven’t seen things in the manner that most people view them.  In the last few years, my perspective on things has gone even further out of line, from the “normal” world.   It can be a difficult life…

Breaking the Burdensome Yoke

Breaking the Burdensom Yoke: A Discipleship Course in Forgiving and Grieving

Forgiving and grieving go beyond theoretical concepts.  Know you need to forgive, but you just can't seem to figure out how? Grieving but feel like everyone thinks you should be "over it" by now? This book is for you.

Not really a paper copy reader?  We'll get you covered.  Our e-book format will be available here soon.

Breaking the Burdensome Yoke walks the reader through the why, what, and how aspects of forgiveness and grief.  These are active processes, and yet, we often get stuck along the way.  Those that have already read the book are saying things like, "I didn't know I needed to forgive that; This helped me understand my grief better; and Everyone needs this book!"

 

Behind Enemy Lines

We had so many questions from readers that we decided to expand the teaching included in this book.  Additionally, you will find a dedicated Question and Answer section in the appendix.  Not really a paper copy reader?  We've got you covered.  Our e-book format is available here.

Behind Enemy Lines takes a look at the power of the Holy Spirit and how we walk in victory rather than defeat and how that often creates questions among those we encounter. You will be reminded of your identity in Christ and be guided toward applying biblical principles of doing like Jesus did. You will uncover practical insights for participating in what God is doing in and through His children when they submit to His will.

"Before we delve into the process of forgiving, we need to know why we are doing this work.  The Lord commanded us to forgive; therefore, we don't have the luxury to dig in our heels and remain in unforgiveness without impeding our relationship with God...Much like the servant in Matthew 18:24, we owed a debt that could not possibly be repaid.  Jesus paid our debt through His sacrifice on the the Cross....He expects us to extend to others the same forgiveness that we have received from Him." (Breaking the Burdensome Yoke pp.22-23)

"Forgiveness is a deliberate decision.  One chooses to forgive, it doesn’t simply occur because you stayed within a certain acceptable range of emotion in reaction to the offense.  If you do not choose to surrender the right to be hurt, then by default, you retain the right to be hurt and can use that at any point in the future against the offender.  When you choose to retain the right to remain hurt, offended, or wounded, you choose to remain a victim by default.  It is very difficult to be both a victim and a conqueror at the same time (Romans 8:37).

Since reconciliation [to the point of restoration of relationship] is not commanded, we can forgive without having to continue to be harmed...." (Behind Enemy Lines, Forgiveness Chapter).

Worship through Flagging

Why Use Flags in Worship?

“Why flags?”   Well, because there is Scriptural basis, complimented by abundant symbolism in color and movement, and because worship is part of our spiritual warfare arsenal.   Synonyms for flags include banner, sign, signal, standard, standard-bearer, and symbol.  While flags as we know them today are not mentioned specifically in Scripture, the present day…

Are Worship Flags Biblical?

Where does the use of praise banners and worship flags come from? Yes, flag worship is biblical, although there is no specific Scripture that commands us to use them in worship today.  Think of the flag bearer or standard bearer in biblical times.   We can even look to Scripture to see God in a…
