Do you feel old and fat?

June 23, 2011

Last Sunday during service, my husband and I came across a scripture as the pastor was teaching. It is found in Psalm 92: 13-14 “Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

See, that morning Tom and I were having one of our conversations and he mentioned how he doesn’t like getting old. Not being able to do the things he used to do. And I said that I felt like I was getting fat. And when we came across this scripture, we both laughed, and knew we were okay! They shall bring forth fruit in old age, they shall be fat and flourishing… and that about describes us!

God is moving in our lives tremendously, we are seeing so many people helped and healed as he uses us EVEN feeling old and fat!  (smile)


You are Rock Stars!

I had to share some awesome things that took place this past weekend in Murietta, CA. I taught a 3-day women’s conference and saw amazing things take place. I felt like I was a by stander as I watched God move! But let me back up a moment, because this meeting almost didn’t happen!

I was driving alone on this trip, my husband didn’t go with me this time, and about 3 hours from home I started getting a really bad headache, so bad I had to pull into the Carl’s Jr. parking lot. My eyes were going crossed, and I called my husband and he told me to come home. But even the thought of driving back three hours was hard to think of doing. So I sat there in the parking lot. I grabbed a bite to eat hoping that would help, but I was still feeling lousy. Well, I ended up calling two of the board members who happened to be roommates, and both began praying for me. Within 20 minutes, my headache was gone, and I was refreshed. So I continued driving on. What the Lord showed me is that I needed my “armor bearers.” People who were like those with Moses who held up his arms when he got tired. That’s how I felt. I needed some help. And help came. It made me see how much we truly need prayer support as we minister for the Lord.

Because I did end up going, the meeting was phenomenal. One person was delivered from 20 years of anti-depressant drugs, marriages restored, legs grew out, hips were rejointed, people got free from old painful issues, brain injuries healed, hearts healed, hands healed, and on and on. I just sat as I watched God touch every life that walked in the door. But it wouldn’t have happened if I turned around!! The meeting would have been canceled.

I Praise God for those who prayed for me, who love me, and help fight the good fight of faith with me. You are ROCK STARS!
