The Aftermath

My friends, today I will finish my Bethel story but I want you to know that this adventure is far from over. Our journey with God is an ongoing adventure that unfolds on a daily basis. I’m stunned at times to go back and read in my journal what I’ve written down and then forgotten! I’m so glad I can go back and be reminded of these things because sometimes those little moments wind up being key to understanding what a big one means. As I will share today. I had a small moment before the conference where I found a dime and penny on the ground during one of my walks. God has me picking up pennies a lot this last year as part of my growing faith and trust in Him to provide for us during these financially trying times. I’ve shared much of that with you in...

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 →

The Bride - Becoming

On Monday I left you with the mind-blow image of becoming THE Bride of Christ. Did this vision mess you up or what? Well let’s keep moving because there is more my friends so much more. Last you saw me I was with Dineen bawling on her shoulder in the classroom. Thankfully, the class ends. I have no idea what was said but I do want to publically thank Dineen Miller for holding my hand and letting me cry all over her. Gang, we all need a Dineen Miller in our lives. AMEN! So, we head to the car. I’m still reeling in pain. I have such a giant pain in my chest that has been opened up and won’t go away. Now I’m certain that the vision that I experienced was to uncover this hidden pain and bring it out so it could be healed. And I’m also certain... Read more →

His Name was Tyler...

Hello dear friends. Last week I left off with a promise that I would tell you the story of Tyler who prayed over this unsuspecting woman. I wish I had a recording of all he said. I think he spoke continuously for a good five minutes and said so much. Later I wrote down as much as I could recall. I’m so glad that Abba knows it all because I know it came from His amazing heart. So it was late in the evening and the last worship and message of the day had ended. People were going up front for prayer for healing, many had already left, and the rest milled around talking and smiling with each other. It is truly an atmosphere so thick with God’s presence that you don’t want to leave it! And the debate within myself continued. Should I go up for prayer? Did I... Read more →

Weekend Worship — The Presence of God

My friends, so much happened during our time at Bethel at the Open Heavens conference. I will share some of the highlights starting today and continue next week. The moment walked into the church you could feel a change in the atmosphere. I don't think I've ever felt it quite so strongly. We followed the signs to registration and got in line. Two or three women were greeting people as we walked in and speaking blessings over each one. Sometimes they would stop someone, because God had given them a specific word to pass on to them—always encouraging and uplifting. This is truly how the body of Christ is intended to operate and it is stunning! As I stepped up to the table, the woman sitting behind the table looked at me and started to speak. She blinked and seemed to stumble over her words. I leaned forward to ask... Read more →

Blessed to Wash Feet

My friends, many of you have sent me messages of congratulations on winning the Carol Award in the mystery/suspense/thriller category for The Soul Saver at the ACFW Conference this last weekend. Thank you for sharing my joy! To say that this is the realization of a dream is an understatement. I am so blown away at how God did all of this. The amazing thing is, God did so much more than even this over the week I was there. He met my every need during this week. He affirmed me in every way and showed me like He never has before how much He loves me. I truly have never felt more loved by Abba than I do now. The award is part of this story, but there were so many other "awards" that came from this week. I want to tell you about one of them. I shared... Read more →

Testimony Time!

My dear friends, I have something absolutely astounding to share with you today. I have shared in the past about my financial situation being very difficult. We are still walking in this and it has required deeper trust for me to believe God will take care of us. Every purchase, even those extra not-so-necessary food items, is falling under the same scrutiny right now—do we really need this? One of my major areas is a medication I have to take daily. It’s expensive. Each time my refill has come up I’ve prayed for God to help us find a way to pay for it. So far it’s been okay but still tight. We have muddled through. Except for this time. Again, I found myself praying Wednesday night for God to provide the $80 I needed to pay for this month’s supply (thankfully health insurance has kicked in and brought down... Read more →

God Answers Me. A Supernatural Encounter

Good Morning, On Monday we chatted about how to recover from enormous disappointment. And in the comments some of you shared how this unequally yoked life is filled with loneliness. I think I will have to write about walking alone because truly I found myself facing a future, perhaps the rest of my life, empty next and retirement, emotionally alone. So watch for that in the future. For today, I think we need an encouraging word from the Lord. So, let me give you the answers to the questions I asked of God. Do you remember last week I asked God, why? God’s reply was this, “Lynn, my grace is sufficient for thee.” Oh Man, that was not the answer I wanted. I have really hard questions and I was desperate for the Lord to show me His thoughts and his purposes in my unequally yoked marriage. I want understanding... 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 →

Martha's Miracle!

My precious friends, you've seen Martha Bush's name many times in the comment. On Mother's Day, she sent this email to Lynn and I—the story of a miracle! And it's a story to be shared! Wow! I have a testimony of praise on this Mother's Day. I left my home in Orange Friday morning at 4:30 A.M., headed for Georgia to spend Mother's Day with my mother. About an hour into the trip, the following is what happened. Just before I got into Sulphur, LA on Interstate 10, all of a sudden there was a big boom and I didn't know what had happened, but I knew that my body was moving around in the car, and I knew I did not have control of the car. But, I didn't know what happened. Somehow, I got back into driving position, and I was traveling straight ahead in the right lane,... Read more →

Miracles and Why God Doesn't Heal

Hello SUMites! God has been beating me about on the head trying to share with me this “thing” I keep talking about. I’m trying to describe to you, our community, and to others I talk with in person this movement by God. It’s a movement in the spiritual realm that is bringing God’s Kingdom to earth. People are experiencing God in profound and different ways than in years past. Experiences such as the encounter I described on Monday. This thing, this movement God told me is THE GREAT AWAKENING of the church. I’ve seen this word written in giant letters on a wall. I’ve had it arrive over and over through email and finally on Monday I “Got it.” Sheesh, it takes me awhile. But, I’m now fully convinced that we are witnessing a giant awakening of God’s people. Did you know that in China over 23,000 people come to... Read more →

What is God's Will For Each of Us?

On Friday we left with the strange and fascinating story about Elijah. How he stepped out onto the mountain to haven an encounter with God. If you remember, (if you don’t’ remember, you MUST read Friday’s post) I’m seated in a Bible study addressing the leader as I’m speaking. I continued explaining my thoughts on this passage in 1 Kings and said, “I believe this (taking a step of faith) is especially true when it comes to healing. Healing of our hearts, our spirit and especially physical healing.” Well that is when everything went nuts. The leader stopped talking. I stopped talking. She was staring at me with such intensity and I didn’t have a clue what was going on. All of a sudden she bursts into tears and says to me, “Lynn, I have been asking God that you would pray for me for my physical healing and that... Read more →

Part the Jordan River, Part III

(Part IV of our current Series: Parting the Red Sea and Parting the Jordan River.) Good Monday Morning Sumites. This is going to be a fantastic week. And I think we are going to discover what can happen in an ordinary believer’s life when we take a step of faith and then step out in trust. Ahhhhh, hold on because this gets really, really good. Let’s pick up our story from Joshua 3 and find out what happened to the people who were stuck on one side of the river with no way to get across to the Promised Land. Read with me. Joshua 3:14 So when the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant went ahead of them. 15 Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the... Read more →

Part the Jordan River

Hey SUMers! Did you enjoy the read through Joshua 3:1-7? I wonder about something. When you read the OT passages do you kinda view the people of the stories as characters. Like a character in a fiction book? Well, Joshua is a real man. He lived on this planet and I can’t wait to meet him one day. I’m going to ask him a bazillion questions about living to be an old man, yet still having the health and vitality of a youth. What was it like to see the pillar of fire at night and the cloud during the day. Were you as astonished as me because your traveled in the wilderness for 40 years and yet your clothing and shoes never wore out? I’m sure I will pepper him with so many questions that he will have to spend a least a 100 years with me alone to... Read more →

Where is the parting of my Red Sea?

I’m wondering if you’ve noticed??? There has been a shift in our atmosphere here among the Sumites. This house has gone through a transition in the last six months. Dineen and I have talked about this transition a lot but what was really cool is that last week I was talking to Beverly Etzel, one of our long-time readers at the conference and this is what she said, “In the early years our discussions (posts at SUM) centered around husbands (spouses). Now they are centered around our faith. They are upward focused (on God) instead of side-focused (on man). Whoa! She is so right. So I’m wondering if you have noticed the transition in yourself? Have you watched your Sumite friends here online make this shift also? Well, do you know why this shift has taken place? In the last week I’ve talked to God a lot about our community... Read more →

The Prodigal and Our Unrelenting God

Good Morning, Lynn Here. If you have prayed for any length for a prodigal or a spouse to come to faith and feel like they are so lost, so far from God that it will never happen, then this story is for you. I want to introduce my friend, Angie Knight. I met Angie in the very early years of blogging. I met her face-to-face at a blogger’s retreat in her home state of Florida in 2009. That was an ordained and anointed retreat for me. Many, MANY works of God came from that weekend where the women prayed over me. Winning Him Without Words was just one. While I was there I met Angie’s precious family. I stayed in her home and met her husband and daughters. It was an amazing weekend. Angie and her daughters Since then her life and mine have become a little busy. Hers with... Read more →

A Step of Faith

My precious friends, God has put a fire in my heart to speak to you about taking a step of faith. There is something God is calling many of us to do—something unique to our place and time and season—and He’s given you a promise that goes with this. And maybe you’ve prayed and waited for a long time for this promise but nothing is happening. What did God call you to do first? What was His call to action? Because as we move forward in this faith journey (and we must always be maturing), our faith in action becomes more crucial to our journey forward. In other words, we will have to take a believing step of faith forward to activate the promise we’ve been given. Let me explain this with the story of Israel crossing the Jordan in Joshua 3. First let’s set the stage with the Israelites... Read more →

Weekend Worship — Holy Hummingbirds, Batman!

My wonderful and precious friends, I wish we could all be in one room worshipping God together. What a sweet incense that would be, rising up to our Lord, wouldn't it? The beautiful part is, one day we will get to do this. Our room will be the throneroom of heaven and we will all be together singing "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!" God's promises are so good, so rich and so astounding. I love watching Him work. But I confess I had a rough moment last week. You know, one of those days that just seems to know no other way but bad. Communication completely failed, feelings were hurt. I went to my room and got on my knees to pray for my family, specifically for my hubby and daughter to regroup and work things out, for our financial situation which was like riding a roller...

No Ordinary Light

Today I want to share something with you that may seem a bit weird. And I’m not even really sure why I’m supposed to share this story. However since the time it occurred the Lord has placed it continually before me as the next post I’m to write. I’m thinking somehow this encounter will greatly encourage someone out there that God is trying to reach. So here we go. Many of you know that almost every morning I go on a “walk-n-pray.” I drive to a park on the edge of town, not too far from my home. I walk in a giant loop around the rural vineyards in our Southern California Wine Country. The loop covers dirt roads, areas where it’s paved. Lots of pastures with horses, vines and fruit trees. It’s a paradise to me and every day I experience God in this wilderness. Afterward he went up... Read more →

Conflict In Marriage - I Bet You Didn't Know THIS

I heard the most astonishing story this past week. And as I’ve thought about it, I’m compelled to share it with you. I was engaged in a discussion with a few people about marriage. You can imagine this particular subject will come up often because I’m so fascinated by God’s design for marriage. The gist of the story was about conflict in marriage. What was fascinating is what one woman said about conflict with her husband. I’m going to share the story but I don’t remember it word-for-word so here is my adaptation. A husband and wife were in the middle of an argument. (In the Donovan house, this would be called a fight. A heated verbal exchange would be accurate around here.) Well as this exchange began to elevate between this woman and her spouse, the husband and the wife became completely at odds and couldn’t understand one another’s... Read more →

Why The Tormentors Come

Well it’s been a riveting series so far. I have prayed for all of you who left your lies at the foot of the cross on Monday. Thank you for your courage and for defeating the enemy’s power in your life. Stay diligent and work to place God’s truth into your lives, hearts and minds. The demons are relentless and will try to come back. Take every thought captive immediately. Say out loud again, I reject that lie in the name of Jesus. I believe I am a child of the Most High God. His truth is my truth. I will obey Him. I will trust Him. I know I am loved, valued, and I have authority over all demons, their works and effects. In Jesus name and by His blood. Amen Okay there’s another area where believers can sign over their authority and become captives. This is also an... Read more →

Welcome To The Terrorist Training Camp

On this bright and crisp Monday morning where it is colder here in Temecula (So California) than Chicago, I WELCOME YOU. I also welcome the FBI who likely will be reading this series because their computers have just detected a blog using the words “Terrorist Training Camp.” Hi Guys!!! Yep, that’s us. For the next few weeks, as long as God leads, we are jumping into some serious warfare training. I am so tired of the devil and his minions terrorizing the children of God. Fed Up! It’s time for the children of God to take back their authority and it’s our time to be doing the terrorizing. We, the believers, are NOT going to live in fear of the enemy. God’s word is filled, filled -I tell you, with every good word and truth to expose the enemy, to release us from fear, give us deliverance, and power over... Read more →

Pray With Power, Real Power

I’m writing to you on a Sunday afternoon. The rain has been gentle outside. The birds at my feeder are engaged in boisterous tweets as they tussle for the seeds. My exhausted daughter is having a nap and I can hear the crowd noise coming from the family room where my crazed husband watches and tracks his Fantasy Football score. And my friends, I’m privileged to spend some precious time with you. Walking with the Holy Spirit this past week has been full of firsts and fascination. I’m discovering that you must protect the Holy Spirit. And in the not-far-off future I will be writing to tell you about this and why we must protect the spirit. But today I want to share another experience from the conference at Bethel. As I look back over our conference experiences and process all that happened, I’m especially moved by the other attendees... Read more →

One More Story...

My friends, I don’t think I ever shared in detail about how things played out with my daughter’s cancer. Maybe it needed to be now so that I can share in context of how God comes, shows up and works in ways that are blatantly astonishing or the opposite, so subtle that we don’t realize until after the fact. For those who don’t know the story, my youngest daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor on October 1, 2008. Two weeks later she would have her first surgery to relieve the pressure on her brain and take a biopsy. They also wanted to insert a port in her chest for her chemotherapy. What God did: He used Leslie to touch the heart of our hospital social worker very deeply. She told us seeing how Leslie handled it all made her rethink her own faith. Leslie also surprised the staff... Read more →
