The Washing Machine Prayer

First, let me tell you that my washing machine is fine. It’s not broken. But God is funny and cool and here’s my story.

Last week, at one of my bible studies, we were all praying for healing and deliverance, sort of an all of us praying at once kind of thing. I really wanted one of two things: Either I wanted healing in my ear, for my ear to open up or for my prayer language to manifest.

Questions on Faith

I believe that God can heal my ear in an instant.

But He hasn’t.

I believe God can do anything we ask and pray for.

But sometimes He chooses not to.

I can understand that God answers prayers in different ways. I can wrap my mind around the fact that God can say yes, no, or wait.

Let’s pray THIS!

I came upon some beautiful verses today! In the book of Ephesians, Paul – in jail, was writing to the church of Ephesus. He prayed the most beautiful prayer over the believers in that church. I’ve adapted the prayer for myself, putting it in the first person because it captures so perfectly the prayer of my heart right now. It’s based on the Passion Translation.

Oh, it’s hard? Good…

I teach elementary school, currently second grade. (Although it IS summer break right now! Woohoo!)

One thing I have always told my students, over and over again, is your brain can’t grow if it’s easy. Your brain only grows if it’s hard.

I explain If something is easy for you then it means you already know it. Therefore you don’t need to learn it, so your brain isn’t growing. It’s just staying the same.

But how?

In the last few weeks, I’ve seen deliverance and experienced deliverance for myself. I have a new found belief in the power of the Holy Spirit and what God has called us to do here on Earth. I’ve tasted it and I want more. I want to be a vessel of everything that God has for me here on Earth, a vessel that the Holy Spirit pours through and out onto others.

I want to speak in tongues – a heavenly language for edification. I want to be able to pray and see people healed through the power of Jesus. I want to be able to call out demons by the blood of Jesus Christ and see people set free.

Good friends will lead you in a safe direction

This is my dog and my best friend’s dog. They are best friends too! They love to play and love each other. And they love just being in each other’s presence.

Fearless Confidence

Last night, Life Church held a live recording of some of the worship music the team has written. I am so excited to have been able to attend and be a part of the audience for this! The goal of the worship team and the leadership of the church was that God would show up and His people would worship and that everything that happened there was all for Jesus. It was an amazing night!

I find something has been happening to me lately when I am gathered in a large worship setting where so many people are in a stance of worship – the leaders, the people, everyone is there to worship God and invite Holy Spirit to show up. God has been using this time to change me, to free me, to call me closer to Him.

Can Women Be Pastors?

I grew up in a conservative baptist church. I’m so thankful for my upbringing and everything I learned while growing up but the more I grow, especially in the last year and a half, the more I find that there’s so much more than I ever knew. God is so much bigger than I thought, so much more loving, and there’s so much more power to access and gifts that God wants to give me!

So I keep learning and sometimes, I find myself faced with a question that goes like this:
