Calling Forth the Beloved

Posted Mar 28th 2010, 08:44 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

Song of Solomon 2: 9-16
My beloved is like a gazelle or a young hart.  Behold, he stands behind the wall of our house, he looks in through the windows, he glances through the lattice.
My beloved speaks and says to me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 
For, behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.  The flowers appear on the...

The Sound of Compassion

Posted Feb 23rd 2010, 08:49 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

Sing for joy, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth, and break forth into singing, O mountains!  For the Lord has comforted His people and will have compassion upon His afflicted.  Isaiah 49: 13
Did you know that compassion has a sound?  Do you realize that compassion releases the power to bring freedom where captivity currently reigns?  Daily we hear the sound and see the power, but rarely do we comprehend the weightiness of it.
Compassion is a feeling of...

The Root of Jesse- The Root of Freedom

Posted Jan 4th 2010, 07:13 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

Early in the morning of January 1st, about three hours after we rang in the New Year, I experienced a very vivid dream.  I was with a number of people I knew who had caused me pain in my past. One was a person I loved very much, but who had bitterly disappointed me in my childhood. In the dream this person was once again causing me deep pain and I was becoming deeply upset.  This continued to the...

Joy in His Presence
Kathi Pelton
LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.  I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  I have set the LORD always before me.  Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue...

Mercy is Falling

Posted Sep 23rd 2009, 02:19 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

In the early hours of the morning on September 20 I was awakened to the words of an old Vineyard song that I haven’t heard in many years: “Mercy is Falling” by David Ruis.  As I heard these words being sung in my spirit I began to experience the sense of a light mist upon my face.  Then the mist turned into a light rain, which turned into a downpour of rain upon me. 
I have to admit that...

Keeping Your Peace of Mind in the Storm

Posted Sep 6th 2009, 11:57 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

The other night my husband and I watched the 1944 film “Gaslight” with Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman.  As I watched this “mystery-thriller” film I began to see a clear picture of how this movie mirrored the tactic of the enemy at this time to try to cause God’s people to believe his lies and steal their identity and inheritance.   For those who have never seen the movie, the plot revolves around Ingrid Bergman’s character, Paula, a young woman...

Grace in Our Weakness
Kathi Pelton
Our family just returned from a most wonderful vacation in Disneyland.  We were given this “all-expenses paid” vacation as a gift by a precious couple who wanted to bless our daughter on her 16th birthday.  We have had a few years of really tough times and this was a much needed getaway for us all.  From the moment we arrived until the moment that we left, it was a magical time.  The hotel was like...

God’s Waiting Room
by Kathi Pelton
It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. Isaiah 25:9
Have you ever met any person who claims to love waiting? I’ve never had anyone come tell me “I love to be patient and wait for an answer.” We all struggle with the call to...

There is a Fourth Man in the Fire

Have any of you felt like you have been in the fiery furnace lately?  My husband and I have surely been experiencing a “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego” season.  But I want you to know that you are not alone, because there is a fourth Man in your furnace!
Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury and his facial expression was changed [to antagonism] against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Therefore he commanded that the furnace should be heated seven times hotter than...

Our Daily Bread

“Give us today our daily bread...”  Matthew 6:11
Over the past number of months I have had the Holy Spirit speak to me regarding “our daily bread”.  His instructions to me were to watch each day for His daily provision.   I was not to look at what I needed for tomorrow, but to fix my eyes on the day at hand.  I could hope for tomorrow, but not worry about tomorrow.  Until I began this “exercise,” I did not realize...

Removing Roots of Fear

Posted Mar 1st 2009, 11:25 by CHOOSE LIFE on Prophetic

Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.   Psalm 27:3
I am always amazed at God’s dealings with me.  I never cease to be surprised at how He can take me places that I would not go apart from His love and leading. 
God’s recent dealings with me began with personal crisis.  Like many of you, our family has been hit hard by the trouble in...
