A Christmas Meditation: Luke 1:38: Let us meditate for just a moment this Christmas Day on the woman who brought forth the Gift from God that we celebrate this very day! Her name was Mary.

The Hope that Changed the World
 
The story of Jesus’ resurrection and Mary Magdalene’s witness is amazing! There is a special detailed story of that amazing moment in John 20:12-16+
Mary Magdalene and the disciples were grieving. They had witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and were suffering from the loss, the pain, the anguish and the unspeakable horror of it all, when Mary had seen that the stone had been rolled away. She told the other disciples, John and Peter. John...

Everyone has pain in his (her) life at some point. The pain may differ. It may be physical or emotional, brought on by some terrible calamity or broken relationship or even an accident. But no one in this life escapes pain of some kind.
God’s word says “in this world you will have tribulation but take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16’;33
It is never the issue that we will have pain. It is important to think...

What God Wants From You

Posted Mar 11th 2018, 12:00 by Sondra Stallman on Prophetic


Today I found myself becoming very busy even as I was reading the bible and studying God's Word. Suddenly I felt the Spirit of God interrupting me. It seemed He was leading me to stop, and leading me to a "time out" with Him. I went to the piano and began to slowly sing a worship song. As I began to sing, I began to feel a deep satisfaction because I knew I was not just singing, I was worshipping....

"Give me understanding and I shall live."

Posted Sep 20th 2017, 12:00 by Sondra Stallman on Prophetic


“Give me understanding and I shall live.”
(Ps. 119:144)
_____________________________________________________
Never underrate understanding.
 King David said he needed understanding to live! He cries out to God in Ps. 119 for it because he knows it will shape his actions and give divine direction; something which David longed for.
Sometimes we read a scripture over and over and we don’t take the time to delve into the deeper meaning; but skim off the top the interpretation we can get with the least amount of effort...

TO FOLLOW OR NOT TO FOLLOW :THAT IS THE QUESTION

Posted Aug 15th 2017, 12:00 by Sondra Stallman on Prophetic


Matthew 6:10: The Lord’s Prayer: Most believers of the Gospel are familiar with the Lord’s Prayer.
This is the one prayer that Jesus told his disciples to pray because it encompasses SO much of what it means to be a true follower of Jesus Christ.
First of all, even the introduction to this prayer signifies that we are believers in Jesus Christ as the Son of God because it begins “Our Father…” Jesus has grafted us in to His Family! We...

ABOVE ALL ELSE

ABOVE ALL ELSE
Everybody goes through “seasons,” not only in the physical world, but also seasons of the soul and spirit. God’s Word says “to everything…there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.” (Eccl. 3)
Seasons come and seasons go.  Not only does the season we are in affect the real natural world around us, but the spiritual seasons of God affect us personally; spiritually. We find gains and we find losses. Some are easy and some are...

Stillness quiets your inner self.
Stillness helps you to listen.
Ecclesiastes 3 says “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.”
God has made a season and time for every purpose under heaven. But what if man never finds that season or time? What if man never recognizes that space or season?
In the din and clamor of life; in the ups and downs , the shouts and the sounds, the climbing and the slamming of doors,...

TRUE GRIT IN TROUBLED TIMES

TRUE GRIT IN TROUBLED TIMES
 
Remember the old John Wayne Classic “True Grit”? In this movie John Wayne portrays “Rooster Cogburn” who was a man of great courage and dauntless in his resolution to bring down vicious outlaws. This is the meaning of the expression, “true grit.” It means stout-heartedness in the face of trouble, strong resolution , determination and courageousness in difficult and threatening situations.
The Psalmist writes: Psalm 60:12
Through God we shall do valiantly: for it is he that shall tread...

The “presence” of a person represents that person’s countenance, their actual appearance, their ‘face.’
