    Old & New Testament Bracelet!

    This Christmas I made several of what are called "Jesus Bracelets" for family and friends. One morning in prayer I was bemoaning the fact I couldn't make one for a dear Jewish friend. God whispered to my heart, "It's the same story." My mind started spinning.

    3 Tips for Powerful Prayers

    About ten years ago our family was wading through some of the most trying, exhausting circumstances of our lives. One of our kids was going through a very painful era and, to help him in the only way possible at the time, we began homeschooling. Now I felt like I was trapped with a lion in a cage every day without even the break of packing him off to school for a few hours. The accusing voice in my head was relentless. “Chana, you have TWO important jobs, that of wife and mom. You’re failing at both."

    What Prayer Is Not. What Prayer Is.

    "Peace in the Midst of the Storm" by Jack Dawson jackdawson.com (look for hidden images) Based on 1 John 4:4

    What Prayer is Not:

    1. Me convincing God to see things my way.
    2. Me pushing hard enough until God finally gives me what I want.
    3. The last resort.
    4. Passive Inactivity.

    Prayer is:

    1. Spending time learning God’s character.
    2. God turning up the heat so poison rises to the surface.
    3. Laying life’s strife at His feet so none of it is on His throne.
    4. Driving me out of my mind and into His.
    5. Willing surrender.
    6. Work.
    7. Warfare.
    8. The moments of the day that set life’s course.
    9. Speaking God’s Kingdom, God’s will & God’s life as God directs.
    10. Being still & knowing He is God.
    11. Mind-boggling.
    12. Transforming.
    13. Unfathomable.
    14. The Greatest Adventure.
    15. Never Wasted Time.
    16. The only place to go in this world where you can drink of something so refreshing & fulfilling.
    17. Gazing at Jesus until I reflect Him.

    Get Rid of the High Places

    30/30 Prayer: Day 4

    Get rid of the high places.

    In the records of the kings of Israel in the Bible, there would come along a king who served God. If he really meant business, he would even get rid of the “high places” of worship. What were those? High places were where the people would go to pray to other gods. They were the secret places of idolatry.

    This morning, God put His loving finger of one of those in my life.

    I like being healthy. I like looking healthy. Those are good things, right? Yes, they’re good but they can also be idols if I feel like junk when I’m not on top of my game.

    What makes me worthy? Health? Vitality? Youthfulness? Strong healthy teeth & fresh breath?

    Honoring the body as God’s temple is one thing but depending on the body to define worthiness is just plain skewed.

    I can usually avoid thinking I’m out of line on this issue until there’s a challenge. Sickness, injury, a few extra pounds, and self-worth takes a nose dive.

    Depressing situation or opportunity? Time to choose.

    God, please tear down this high place of idolizing health and looks to define self-worth and even usefulness to You. Thank You for revealing a place in my life where I rely on me rather than You. I choose to kick self off that throne and worship only You, precious Father. Not because you’re selfish, but rather because You desire only freedom and joy and to keep my feet firmly planted on solid rock that cannot be shaken. You are the only foundation that never fails.

    In Jesus’ holy name I pray, Amen.
