What Will It Take To Increase YOUR Faith?

Hey SUMites, Tiffany here! I asked Lynn if I could do an additional post this month because I wanted to share a really cool story with you. I pray it activates and strengthens your faith to use your God given authority like it has me. In my spare time, I love to upcycle things. Especially using license plates and 100+ year old barn wood from my grandpa's family farm. This year I really ramped up my exposure going from doing the typical 2 -3 shows a year to 9-10 this year. On Friday afternoon, June 8th, the back power hatch when out in our suburban. It refused to open! I had to open the half window and reach through to try and get my groceries. We have a pickup truck but I can't use it for shows because we don't have a topper and I take a LOT of stuff... Read more →

Children And Night Terrors (Series Part I)

February 9, 2017 SUMites, Lynn here. I’m deeply moved with compassion for every child who is experiencing night terrors. The LORD has been talking to me about this situation and He is greatly troubled that so many small children are terrorized in the nighttime hours. It is God’s intention to bring awareness to this issue and alleviate the fears that are troubling our children’s sleep. God wants to communicate with love and tenderness, adventure and more to our children in the nighttime hours but the demonic realm is in a very real battle for their little hearts and minds. With that said, I hope you will allow me to share some research, truths and some practices that as a believing parent you can employ to put a stop to the night terrors and release your children into the Kingdom of God without fear when they sleep. Let’s chat about the... Read more →

Guess What Happened On Wednessay Of Our Fast?

Hi SUM Nation, Our annual fast was one of the most powerful experiences in our community to date. The emails and comments that arrived bear proof that our God is moving upon our prayers. Be assured that our sacrifice of fasting pulled on heaven. I know many of us had some significant experiences. Many received revelation, and many discovered a growing depth in your relationship with the Lord. Hallelujah. I had a profound experience on Wednesday: I was at church and the meeting I was attending was concluded. I stood in the building, chatting with two other ladies about our current experiences with God. We were discussing the astonishing things God is doing and how our minds are being blown up right now. It’s one of my favorite things to do, compare notes with other believers who are hungry for God. Anyhoo, our excitement was obvious to anyone who may... Read more →

Advice To Those Who Are Dating An Unbeliever - Please Share Your Thoughts.

SUMites, did you read some of the comments from last Monday’s post about friendships? Man, o man…. Good stuff. And you know what I loved most about the thread of conversations? The LOVE. The love, compassion and caring in those words to one another. Thank you. Bless you!!! So, I want to do this again today: I often receive emails from men and women who are contemplating a relationship or marriage to an unbelieving partner. Answering these emails is not as easy as you might think. Firstly, the writer has been in the relationship for a significant period of time. Translation: She is already in love. She feels a commitment and her heart and life is fully engaged with this man. Secondly: Most who write me were raised in faith and they already know what the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14. Third, they are seeking hope that their marriage... Read more →

Easter Praise-A-Thon

Hello SUMite Nation, Again!!!!!! You did it again! This amazing family on the web emailed and left comments for Heidi that will fill her blossom tree. THANK YOU. You wrote words of faith, hope and love. THAT is what the family of God looks like. THAT is unity in Christ. You loved on this woman that you didn’t know. She will be forever touched by your kind words of love, prayers and scripture verses of encouragement. I adore you! As I’m typing I hear the Holy spirit whisper into my heart, “I’m so proud of the SUMite family. This nation, each person, is stronger than they think. They are mighty in deed and power.

They Heard A Voice

This week something supernatural happened that made national news. I will say that I'm not surprised as I have expected that the world is going to see more and more of God's supernatural intervention in our world. What so great about this story is that four men corroborate the story. A mother and baby were in a car that careened out of control and cashed upside down in a river. The mother was killed on impact and the baby survived for 15 hours strapped upside down in her car seat. That is a miracle in itself but what I'm interested in is what happened when the fire and police arrived to initiate the rescue. Rescuers Heard A Voice Then, suddenly, they started hearing the distinct sound of a woman’s voice, calling to them to help. We heard a voice saying 'help me, we're in here.' It was clear as day....

Day Three - The Promises Fulfilled

Yesterday we approached the Alter. We surrendered our shame, guilt, our failures, our inadequacies, pain, disappointment, devastation ….. Our brokenness. Listening to our Father today, I hear Him say to me, “Lynn, you have stood upon my promises and have remained faithful. I cannot deny my own Word.” There have been many years in my past that all I had to grasp were God’s distant promises. But I held on to them. Sometimes shakily. Praying and willing myself to trust God’s promise, I would wake up at night and speak them out loud. I would repeat them over and over to myself. I remember a long season in my past where all I could do was to repeat, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can do all things… (Phil 4:13) This promise alone push me... Read more →

Who Were The Pray-ers?

From Monday’s post…….However, before we leave I want to go and give a hug and thank you to each of the trio of the prayer team. I start looking all over. I can’t find them. Ahhhhhhh, now that is an interesting story in itself. I haven’t been able to stop considering the trio of pray-ers since I arrived home a week ago…………… Let me pick up the story from Monday. The girls and I has sufficiently wiped our faces and we are still all smiles from ear-to-ear and remain pretty-much in shock by what has just transpired. However, we must make our way to the airport shortly. We stand and start toward the exit of the main room where there are still tons of people. And as I stand I’m compelled to want to say thank you one more time to the praying trio before we leave. After all, it’s... Read more →

Jesus Heals! In Front of My Eyes!

If you missed Friday’s post, go back and read it now. Here is the link. Now let’s pick up the story. Okay, remember my daughter who is 19 just received word that Jesus launched her into a new journey. And my friends, already so much has happened to her as she returned to her college campus. But, let’s not get sidetracked. Oh and I should mention, Dineen was not with us as she had to return to San Jose early that morning for a family get together. Bummer! Onward. The trio of pray-ers move on to Gina as Caitie is sitting next to me telling me about what she just experienced. We are both teary-eyed and overwhelmed. If you stop for a minute and think about what we are experiencing, it’s a Holy Mind-blow. I mean really. Angels are in the room. Jesus is launching teens into His Kingdom, people... Read more →

Does Jesus Heal Today?

SUMites, Where to begin. Let me ask you a question. Do you believe God still heals? Can He cure cancer, heal the blind restore hearing in the deaf? If you are a SUMite, I know you said yes. I know you said that because we MUST believe in great miracles of God’s love and kindness. If we had little faith, we could not walk this unique walk of the unequally yoked. Today, I’m going to step out and share with you what transpired on Saturday. I may stumble through the story as I’m still processing it all. Get a cup of coffee or tea. Pull up a chair and I pray, I pray with all that I am, that you feel chills run all over your body as the Holy Spirit confirms His power and love for God’s people. You met Gina, right? We prayed for her several years ago... Read more →

God Spoke. The Angels Sing Over The SUMites!

Wow Oh Wow… The heavens opened this morning. On my walk n pray this morning God just started talking. And talking. And talking…. I was so overwhelmed by all He was sharing that I had to call Dineen while I was on the trail. What was He saying? I’m so glad you asked because it was all about you, Sumites. I’m going to write out what I heard. First I kept hearing over and over, humble and contrite. Humble and contrite. Humble and contrite. Then He explained. Lynn, I know you have talked to me a lot about these letters and lists. You have brought the people who wrote them before me. But I want to tell you how I feel about these men and women. My heart is moved with joy and great pleasure for these, my children. “Why Lord?” Because they have given me a sacrifice of great... Read more →

Angel on The Roadway

Lynn & Heidi Heidi Holmes has been a regular reader of SUM for about two and a half years. She made the five hour drive from Las Vegas, NV to Temecula last week to participate in our Walmart Prayer Day. Heidi told me that a year ago she was so riddled with fear and anxiety, she could have never made a trip like this alone. (I have her permission to share) God has brought so much healing into her life. Heidi left on Friday the day following the event and an astonishing thing occurred. Here is her story: By Heidi Holmes Ok here goes... Driving back to Nevada the following day still drunk on Gods presence and glory that showed up in Temecula, I could do nothing but smile and praise His name, singing with each song of praise on the radio with tear-filled eyes. I was so full of... Read more →

Kingdom Prayer - Pray This With Me

#SUM Nation, today would you join me in prayer: Lord, Holy Papa, Your children gather here in this unexpected house. The House of SUM where we come from all the nations to share our hearts with You and with each other. Thank you for this amazing place where we gather to unite “the church.” Thank you this is a place where we don’t judge one another by appearance. We see one another at the heart level — through words. It’s beautiful here Lord. Thank you for allowing us to see one another just as You see us. You look at the heart. Father, we love you. We adore our Betrothed, King Jesus and we are lost without the Dove that indwells and sits upon our shoulder. Thank you for your love, grace, provision, lavish gifts. Thank you that you wanted kids and chose us. Today, Father I’m moved to ask... Read more →

Joshua, The Wall's AND Who Is This Guy?

Hey Gang, Let’s get back to Joshua, the Israelites, and those ever present and menacing Walls of Jericho. I find it interesting as I began to write this series, I was also reading this very story in my Daily Bible this past couple of weeks. There is such a depth and richness in these chapters that I could probably write a book about the parallels to our life today. But alas. I have too much to do right now. *grin* Today I want to specifically address something that I think most of us miss in this story. But before I go there I think we need to remember that in several places in this story, the beginning chapters of the Book of Joshua, God calls the people to consecrate themselves. Before crossing the Jordan River (Joshua 3:5) and on this particular day the people witnessed a miracle. Both Dineen and... Read more →

Balm For My Pain

So on Friday I left you with my story of my return home from Bethel. This is the culmination of a long week and very long and a supernatural experience more fantastic than I can describe with sufficiency. So here we go. Are you ready? I’m lying in bed trying to fall asleep. But I can’t sleep. So I talk to God. I can’t even remember what I’m praying but it was words of love, peace, joy and seeking. Leaving the conference has stirred up inside of me a hunger for more. I want more of God’s desires for mankind. I know I’ve spent hours praying since the conference asking for God to give me His heart. I just want His heart for people. I want to love people and I refuse to judge them. I ask God to give me His heart and eyes to see people as He... Read more →

He Holds Our Tears

My friends, Dineen here. Lynn let me hyjack the blog today because we agreed the messages I received from the Holy Spirit are so needed right now and time sensitive. Get ready to read and grab a tissue. God rocked my world and now He's about to rock yours. But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her,... Read more →

What Happened on March 14th? I Still Ponder it All.

SPOILER ALERT….. SPOILER ALERT….SPOILER ALERT I know that there are many of you reading and working through the questions of our book right now. There’s a story I share in the book that I have never told here on the blog. It’s the story of a glimpse into the miraculous and it happens in chapter eight. Well actually it happened on our front driveway. *grin* I won’t retell the story here but today I want to share with you that this particular encounter continues to fill my heart with hope. Like Mary, she treasured the small things of Jesus in her heart. I too, treasure this day and I ponder it often. The reason I speak of it is because this week, I opened my daily Bible to March 14th and written there in the margin at the top of the page it reads: 2008- Mike ….. (okay, I can’t... Read more →

Thankful Thursday -

Let us give thanks. It is Thankful Thursday. This month we are spending the HOT month of July here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. Next month we will meet up with Laurie of Women Taking A Stand and in September we will share our thanks with Iris of Grace Alone. Several years ago, I found myself in what I would describe a very real spiritual battle. I had been praying for my unsaved husband and the spiritual warfare over him was intense. At that time I began to pray for angels to be dispatched from the Lord's throne to my home. To stand guard at every window and door, with their swords drawn ready to fight for me, my husband and our family. God listened and Wow, what a battle it was. One day I will have to share what happened. Too much for now. I am utterly convinced God dispatched... Read more →
