The Glorious Company

On this Monday morning following Easter, I feel as though I want to share a passage that is continually running in my soul right now. It’s the passage that Easter is leading me to comprehend. It is the message from the Holy Spirit to the church in this season. THIS is our inheritance and expectation as a daughter or son…. Or Bride of the King of Kings. It’s a complete, full circle, from where we started this journey with the Father asking the Israelite slaves, Will you marry me. BEHOLD! Our destiny, BRIDE OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. The Glorious Company 18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not...

First LOVE

We have been chatting about suffering. It can truly blow up your mind to consider the reasons of God for suffering. Not too long ago the Lord spoke to me about my unequally yoked marriage. It was likely in a challenging season when I was complaining to God about His delay in saving my pre-believer. (To even write that causes me a degree of shame. Sheesh.) This was the Lord’s unexpected but powerful reply. Hosea 2:14 But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there. 15 I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt. —NLT The Lord then spoke to me, Lynn,... Read more →

The Promise of His Covenant

SUMites, I pray this week of fasting has brought you encouragement and strength this week. I wish I could have fasted more, but my pain medication only allowed me to fast a couple mornings. I am encouraged however that even in the midst of this recovery, which has made focusing on God very challenging, I was still able to hear His heart for our community. That right there knocked another lie out of my spiritual life. For that I am grateful. He has shown me that even in such places of challenge when I don't feel close to Him, He is still speaking and He will make sure I hear Him. Our own Cindy C. shared this profound truth perfectly: "Trust God's hold on you MORE than your hold on God." (Thank you, Cindy!) Now, the rest of Abba's message for us is in Jeremiah 33, where I started on... Read more →

The Throne of Grace, Part Two

My friends, at the end of my post on Wednesday I said I had another stunning piece of this treasure hunt we are on. Below is a page from my Sanctuary Bible (yes, the very one Abba led me to) and it holds an excerpt from a book titled, Never Alone by David and Teresa Ferguson. Read it and then meet me below this new way to look at our marriages and pray into them. First, I want to speak to those of you who are separated and whose spouse has walked away from God. As I've shared in the past, my heart is heavy for you and remains so. My heart and prayers are with you. And today, I want to speak a message to you that I feel Jesus wants you to know more than anything. Jesus understands your betrayal and rejection better than anyone. Read the accounts... Read more →

This is Your Divine Destiny. Don't Give It To The devil!

The Ugly Word for 2014 Part I The Key to Powerful Prayer Part II Dream Big! Part III Lynn here! I have some crazy but good stuff to share. Here we go! I believed a lie about my creativity. On my dream list for this fall I have penned a sacred dream that is precious to my heart. And over the last nine months the devil has done everything to destroy that dream. I became so overwhelmed by the lies of the enemy and spiritual warfare that I handed over my authority over this dream to the lie and it was taken from me. It pains me to even type these words. Most of the time I believe and live in God’s truth and have been living there for a long time. So to realize that I allowed the devil to steal truth from me, and even worse I believed... Read more →

Your Breakthrough Is Here - Passover

Hi SUMite Family, This week I’m departing from our Joshua and The Walls series. Today I want to share my thoughts and prayer about Passover. And on Friday, I’m sharing a glimpse I had of The Wedding of the Son of God and His Bride. (It’s way cool and perfect for Good Friday. Be sure to stop in then.) What is Passover? Passover is a festival of freedom. It commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt, and their transition from slavery to freedom. The main ritual of Passover is the Seder, which occurs on the first night. As believers we know we are not under the Old Testament law. We are living in the age of grace because of the blood sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Christ Jesus. And as a person who loves God and ponders His ways and thoughts, I’m thinking that many of the ancient feasts and... Read more →

It's About A Wedding. It's About Covenant

My friends, today I want to finish my story that began a few weeks ago. Here are the links to the previous posts: It's All About A Wedding What Is Covenant? And I Propose??? If you remember I shared with you how Dineen and I met, the journey of our friendship and our ministry beginnings. Let me pick up now where I left off. In January Dineen and I attended a conference together and it was on the last night of the conference, I heard God speak to me heart, “Lynn, you need to wash Dineen’s feet.” I will remind you that for a month God focused my heart and study on learning about covenant. Finally, this was the night God called me to put my faith into action. So as we arrived back at our hotel at 11:00 p.m., I said to Dineen, “I just heard God tell me... Read more →

It's All About A Wedding!

Hello SUMites, Lynn here. I’m posting on Wednesday today as I’m traveling the remainder of the week. Teresa will be sharing a fascinating interview on Friday. Dineen will be back in March. Woo Hoo!! Thank you Teresa T. for filling in this month. I love you my friend. And we appreciate your heart and time. Hugs, SUMites! I’m heading out to South Bend, IN today as I was invited to be a guest on The Harvest Show. I’m chuckling a bit because this California girl is heading into the Polar Vortex. My friends, I don’t even own clothing that is sufficient for the temperatures they are forecasting for Thursday. Ahem, the high 8 degrees and the low, -7. *OUCH*.. I want to tour Notre Dame on Thursday, as I have the afternoon free. It will be snowing. Hmmmmmm. On second thought, I may have the time of my life. May... Read more →
