I was raised in church.
As a kid I would sit in cushioned benches in our church along with my family and every service began with hymns. I learned every word to so many of those old songs.
Today they still reside deep in my soul. At unusual times and places those old lyrics force themselves up and out.
And….. I start singing… OUT LOUD! In the middle of the night. Out in the garden. While I am jogging. The shower, the car, often while I am praying in the morning.
Well today I was so moved by Dineen’s post (below) that my lips began moving and I am filled with this old hymn….
VICTORY IN JESUS…. MY SAVIOR FOREVER.
I want to jump out of my chair right now and sing at the top of my lungs… Better not as my sleeping family would likely pound me *grin*.
Girls, and men, we have victory.
Read this scripture again:
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? — 1 John 5:4-5 ESV
We will prevail through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
Today, I claim to the world that Jesus works. He can change wayward hearts, stubborn children, an unbelieving spouse, angry bosses, mean spirited people and mostly, me. Woo Hoo!
What is your victory?
Have a blessed Thursday. I am looking forward to reading about your triumphs. Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
