Hello My Friends,
Well there is a lot happening around here. On Monday, my son and his family, his wife and daughter, Elise, who is 10 months old will be moving in with us. They are relocating from Las Vegas, NV to start a new life here in California.
This is great news for a grammy’s heart. But what is even better news is how this came about.
I prayed for years and years asking the Lord to bring my son near. There were seasons, years, where that hope seemed impossible. It was inconceivable that my son would move… ever… So when this all came about, quite quickly, I can only shout to the faithfulness of our God. And if you have been a reader for any amount of time here at SUM, you will know that in the past 12 months I have FINALLY received the answers to prayers prayed for years and years.
My daughter’s school choice… And now my son is moving near.
I’m sharing this good news for two reasons. I’m giving public thanks to my Father for answering this momma's heartfelt prayers for her kids. And I want to encourage you to continue to press forward and believe for the things you pray that are within God’s will. AMEN.
Now on to other things. Next week, Dineen are sharing a few things about what is happening in our book writing. And then following that, we will launch into the Spiritual Warfare series and tackle the Orphan Spirit, and the Religious Spirit and more.. Way cool stuff that will truly help you battle for your family. We will stay on this topic until God moves me out.
But HERE IS THE REALLY COOL NEWS. Dineen and I received an email from one of the speakers we heard during our conference at Bethel. This man has a prophetic voice and he shares the following about 2014. As I read it, it greatly encouraged me about the coming year. I pray it also encourages you.
Great things await this community. I really mean this. GREAT THINGS..
So here is a portion of the 2014 message by Bob Hartley:
God spoke from Psalm 67 that He is going to open up His face and His ways so that He will be seen and known, not only among His people, but also among whole cities, and even nations, that will open their gates to Him. I saw specific nations invite Him, with His gifts and building plan, into their cities. These cities will become radiant with joy and pulsate with the presence of God. They will receive and enjoy many breakthroughs in every area of life. Jesus has also shown me how thrilled He truly is that these people and places are welcoming Him to bless and lead them.
There is so much more but 2014 is going to be a hopeful year. And we are the Hope-Restorers. So please read along with me Psalm 67 and let this passage become true here on earth as it is in heaven:
Psalm 67: NIV
May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us—
2 so that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.
3 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.
5 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.
6 The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.
7 May God bless us still,
so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.
My friends, what does this verse mean to you? Love you. Lynn
