 Living God's Dream by Alissa Cooper When I first made the decision at nine years old to live God's dream, I know that I did not fully understand what it would mean for me to do this. I did not understand what it would cost me in future years or how drastically my life would change. I did not understand the challenges that I would face, but I also was unaware of how amazing it would be to see God's hand at work in the minute details of my life. I could not have comprehended the events that would take place in my life as I fully surrendered every part of myself to him. I could not have known the joy that would fill my own heart as I was truly able to participate in the work of the maker of Heaven and earth-serving as a handmaiden simply responding to the voice and signals of her master. I definitely did not realize how beautiful it would be to see God expand my vision and resources to bring life and hope to the destitute and despairing people of Africa. When I made the d

Bus of gamblers breaks down outside friends church in MA and God takes over.

 Greetings, This church is in Worcester, Mass. A Vineyard Church. Read on how God is at work. So, as most of you may know, snow has been dumping on New England since Friday. Despite the blizzardy circumstance, we decided to press onward and not cancel Sunday service at The Woo, with minimal expectation of what the turn-out might be. What ended up happening is still blowing my mind away - God showed up! Although we had worked hard in planning for this service (esp since it's right before Christmas), His greater plan came into action that exceeded anything that we had originally planned for. Just 30 min before our service began (we we just finished plowing our sidewalk/walkway and setting up inside), a bus full of people on their way to a Jay Chou (a major Taiwanese pop star, btw!) concert at Mohegan Sun Casino broke down and glided into the side street by our church. It literally stopped precisely in front of our freshly shoveled main entrance. Before we knew it, we were servin

"I Want a House," by Yelena Bonner

Hello Friend, 2008 is coming to a close, and indeed it was quite a year.  We have amazing opportunities ahead of us, and 2009 promises to be the absolute best for all of us.   Yelena Bonner, wife of the exiled Soviet physicist Andrei Sakharov.  Bonner came to the United States for heart surgery and returned to the Soviet Union after six months in the U.S. At a time when many are wondering just what home ownership means, I thought it appropriate on this Christmas Eve to share with you her powerful essay again.  What is remarkable to me is that she truly understands the American Dream - home ownership -more than many Americans do. I hope you send this on to those who have stood strong in the midst of falling stock market, currency crisis, foreclosures, short sales, media terrorism, and all the other craziness of the year.   God Bless you and yours this Holiday season, Jorge and Anna Marie Parrott "I Want a House," by Yelena Bonner. I maintain that Americans do not want

A little girl there was taken off life support, her mother in her room praying.  At the same time, a nurse noticed a man standing in the hallway.  When she pushed the security button to let him in, no one was there.

Facing the Future With The Abiding Peace of God by Bobby Conner

      Facing The Future With The Abiding Peace of God January 2009 By Bobby Conner The peace that God offers is not the absence of adversity, nor is it the end of trials and trouble. As followers of Christ we are not necessary immune from all difficulty. Nevertheless in the midst of pressing problems and overwhelming obstacles God always provides a way to escape. Even when our heart is broken and our dreams shattered and we are facing devastating difficulties we have the assurance of Christ's abiding presence this alone produces abiding peace. The promise of Hebrews 13:5 releases confidence and courage to face any situation: � Your lives should be untainted by love for money. Be content with what you
