Testimonies continue to abound as we minister in meetings and Arise Conferences. One young woman stood in the gap for her Mom who had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Even though the mother was not saved and not in the meeting, her daughter’s faith healed her. The doctor told the Mom the black spot on her lung had totally disappeared by her next visit! Other women totally turned from victims to victors at our Maui Arise Conference in October. They are regularly attending and volunteering at church, they have even started a small group and their leader has seen a huge difference in them.
Do everything you can to stay in unity with your loved ones this Thanksgiving holiday – that is where God commands the blessing. There are many reasons where you can be justified to stay in strife, but excuses are like noses, everyone has one. In John 5:7-9 the man at the pool of Bethesda made excuses for his condition but Jesus refused to go there, and instead asked for action. He tells the man to get moving, to do what he can do. Walking in love is the surest way to keep your health, finances and family intact, especially when you don’t feel like it!! Time to rise above your feelings.
“Love never gives up,
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first.”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always, always looks for the best
Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.” 1 Cor 13: 3-7 msg
