TRANSFORMED BY THE IMPOSSIBLE

July 28, 2021

Transformed by the Impossible Sanctified through Taking on the Impossible When Jesus tells us to do something that seems truly impossible we must view it as an open door rather than a barricade. He is not attempting to push us away, but to call us higher and deeper into His heart. I believe it is actually part of our transformation process to do the impossible. We are sanctified by taking it on. As we receive the invitation and the challenge we inevitably become more like Him. It is in our “yes” that he is allowed to build us up in our faith.  Luke 9 In the ninth chapter of Luke we see a beautiful example of this. Jesus challenged the disciples to feed the multitudes. This provoked them into dialogue with the Lord. Instead of shutting down and giving up on their Rabbi, they began talking with him, explaining they didn’t have any food except five loaves of bread and two fish. Their willingness to have this conversation allows Jesus to address their doubt and to give them specific instructions, leading to the miraculous feeding of the 5,000. More than the miracle, I believe what meant the most to Jesus was that the disciples obeyed him like he obeyed the father, becoming more like him in the process.  Provoked into Prayer The impossible is meant to provoke us into prayer, into dialogue with Jesus. In the context of prayer, the ultimate stagnation of it would be for us to only ask the Lord to do things we could do ourselves in our own human strength. This would defy the...

What is God Like? Does God Discipline?

February 9, 2021

WHO IS GOD? Many people often wonder what God is like. Have you ever asked the question of what God is like? In this video, join Andrew Chalmers, as he talks about an important attribute of God’s character that we find in the Bible. This session specifically helps to answer the question, Does God discipline us? Many people have varying views and ideas about what God is like. In order for us to really find out the truth of who God is and what he is really like, we must always go to our primary source, the Bible. In the bible we can find the answers to many of our questions we have about God. Does God discipline us? In this session, Andrew Chalmers explores Hebrews chapter 12 where it talks about God’s discipline in our lives. We discover in this chapter the truth that God not only disciplines us but also that His discipline in our lives is a sign of being His children. If we are not being disciplined by our heavenly father, then we are not truly His children. Punishment vs. Discipline Is there a difference between punishment and discipline? In this video we explore the difference and how important discipline is in our lives. What we discover from this is that not only do we need discipline but also that God’s discipline in our lives is a sign of God’s love for us. He loves us so much and He is so good that he’s constantly working in our lives to bring us more and more into what is best for us. God uses discipline...

Thoughts From The Prayer Room

October 29, 2020

Gratitude for Weakness Feeling weak… Last week was difficult and at first I had no idea why. I found it difficult to pray or even worship the Lord. Discouragement set in; then despair; then apathy. All the while I could feel myself losing connection with the Lord more and more. As I lost connection with Him I began to lose connection with the people around me as well. I felt isolated, quite miserable, and even a little hopeless. All of this happened within a 24 hour time frame without any major identifiable cause. Then, suddenly, something amazing happened.  Gratitude for weakness… I was driving in my car, stuck in my own pity party, when all of a sudden the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance 2 Corinthians 12:9… “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” I felt my shoulders relax, my mind set at ease and my heart fill with gratitude for God’s power being made perfect in my weakness. Those negative feelings didn’t hold the same power they did before and I had an inner joy flood my entire soul. My whole week from that point on was outstanding, filled with amazing moments of family fun, fulfilling work, and most importantly my connection with God was reaffirmed.  Weakness is not a disqualifier… This experience was honestly a first. I’ve thanked God for many things in my life, but never have I thanked Him for my weaknesses! In...

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
