BSSM Grads Keep On Keeping On

There are five things I've learned in the ten years since Rick and I attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM):

1: The older we get, the hungrier we get. The love of learning and the heart's desire to ever know more of the nature and love of God keep us studying, moving forward in life, and following what we sense God is wanting us to do.

2: There is fruit; and where there is fruit, there is good soil and quality seed. BSSM provided that foundation for us, and our life since then has been filled with awesome opportunities to not only adventure with Him - but see so many people enjoy His healing, peace, joy, and presence.

3: The message hasn't changed.  That message is: "God is good. He's better than we imagine. We are His beloved children. All He asks of us is to be His sons and daughters. It's from that precious identity we seek to want to do with Him what He asks us because we love Him and love His exploits.

4: We have the authority of Jesus to defeat the enemy of our souls. We can pray and declare truth and trust things are happening in the spirit. We can sing praises; laugh; and live in joy - and know that these are mighty weapons to defeat the plans of the enemy. We can know that Papa God delights in us and is with us in all things. We can know that even in bad times He will somehow and with great strength turn them around for good. We can trust that His promises will come to pass concerning us.

5: We continue to live in awe and thanks for all we learned while in school. So many helped us attend; and we pray many have benefitted from our time there. It has been such a joy to share what we learned and to pour into others what was poured into us.

We love you all and have so much hope and many plans for the coming years. It's going to be good!

Psalm 145:15 - You have captured our attention and the eyes of all look to you. You give what they hunger for at just the right time.

The One Thing

In my life, I have seen miracles - so many that in no way could I ever not believe in the love of an all-embracing, all powerful, Creator God.

I have witnessed and participated in miracles of healing, dead-raising, deliverance, and the power of prayer. I have seen people changed for good and forever. I have seen the sweet miracle of people set free from shame and torment. I have seen the love of Papa God wake a person up to who they truly are as a son and daughter of a Father who loves them no matter where they are in life.

I have been the recipient of that love.

And I have been a teacher in hopes of helping others see what I see and know what I know.

And this all boils down to one thing:

God is good. He is really good.

Psalm 100:5 - For the Lord is always good and ready to receive you. He's so loving that it will amaze you - so kind that it will astound you.

Let’s Talk Miracles, Healing, Prophecy, and Hearing God!

New York City chick for
5 days!
On looking at the statistics of readers of my blog, I note there are certain headlines that seem to attract more attention. 

Miracles, healing, hearing God, business, partnership, prophetic, and more are certain words that seem to attract attention to my blogs.. or…it could be the photos I posted with these particular blogs. Nonetheless, I am so amazed at the readership from around the world. And thankful. By the interest in these particular headlines, I feel like there are a lot of us who need a miracle, who need healing, who are looking for connection, and would love to hear a word from God.  If you are new to this blog, let me tell you a bit of my heart for it. I am a writer. I love the internet. I love reaching people with my thoughts. I love that they actually read me. I love to connect this way. A bit introverted? Well, yes. A bit nerdy? Yes. Fulfilling and totally satisfying? Yes. 

I keep it short, to the point, and discuss whatever God has shown me He wants to discuss that day. Period. I believe each post continues to have power to change your life no matter when you read it. Thank you! Love, Chris

"Get Up!" He said.

Do verses jump out at you sometimes when you read your Bible? It is happening more frequently to me and I am loving these ways that God is speaking into my circumstances.

One example this week was John 5:8 - “Then Jesus said to him, ‘Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.’” He was speaking to a man who had waited many years to be helped into a pool to be healed. He blamed others who would always get in ahead of him. Jesus asked him if he even desired to be healed. This reminded me of my Dad when he would come wake me up and get me going on a weekend day when I would have rather been lazy. He’d have me out participating in life, in family, in chores - mowing the lawn, weeding dandelions, shoveling snow, helping clean, or just being part of the family fun. So, when I read - “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk “- I heard my Dad’s voice. “Get going! Follow your dreams! Seize the day! Conquer your fear! Slay the giant! Gain the victory!”

I have a dream. It’s a big one. And there are scary things between that dream and me. It is easy to make excuses. But that is not who my Father in Heaven made me to be. The next verse says that "at once" the man was cured. So I am to get up and expect that “at once” God is right there curing my fears - being strong in me - and being my cheerleader as I walk into my destiny. Quite a picture! Just wait till you see what I am about to do!

Bless you all today!

Grace - It's better than you think

Picture of grace:

for a lame old boy named Buddy.

I used to think - even until today - that verses about Jesus walking in grace meant something about his dignity, royalty, stature, anointing, coordination, beauty and divinity. But though these are true of His character - these are not representations of His Grace. No. He walked in Truth (for us) and Grace (for us). Grace to forgive. Grace to understand. Grace extended to us in whatever our human state. Grace that gives us new eyes to see; new ears to hear; new legs to walk. Grace to pick us up, dust us off, and send us on a pathway to our destiny - one that is filled with hope and joy. He is grace. He is grace empowered in us for others. I want to walk in that kind of grace…love my neighbor…love those who oppose me…love those who think they are unloveable, love without fear.  I want to extend grace to family and friends - loving unconditionally in every situation. There for them. Present in today. Present with God in every moment. I have a ways to go. Thankfully, there is grace for me to get there.

John 1:14 - The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
