This Christmas I welcome a tiny gift from God called Jesus, God With us, Emmanuel, The Hope of the World.
I really cannot afford to give this gift a proper place. I am almost too busy with the hustle bustle of life. There is hardly room for one more idea or project. There really isn’t room at center stage…. But a new hope is born today in the manger of my soul.
It started with a decision to let it happen. I did not clean house first. I am who I am, where I am. It happened off to the side, out back, somewhere in the dark cave called my heart. In among the animal instincts, unrefined desires, and base drives - a little hope was born.
I welcome a small chance that the world can become a better place if I only give God some room to work and let love grow.
Will you do the same? Can Christ be born again in your life?
Can the world become a better place if we love one another and do unto others as we want done to us?

America needs prayer. The economy is in worse shape than most realize. Our president elect says it’s worse than we thought. He plans on creating millions of jobs in a WPA type program. That’s a good idea - but not enough…
American needs prayer. Our sons and daughters are giving their lives for a war we don’t support at home.
America needs prayer. We have little faith in our elected officials, as they clutter meaningful legislation with money for friends and trade favors instead of governing.
America needs prayer. Poverty is growing, people are losing their homes, and good people are starving.
America needs prayer. Homes provided to house victims of natural disasters are taken away before homes are built.
America needs prayer. We are assaulting our teachers, and falling behind the world educationally.
America needs prayer. We are killing our wives, children, brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents.
America needs prayer. We may have gained the whole world but lost a soul in the bargain.
What to do? BELIEVE in the power of God to overcome the world.
The powerful and effective prayers of a righteous man availeth much!
A little tiny bit of goodness wants to come into the world at Christmas.
If you make just a little room for hope, possibility, and miracles - then the baby Jesus, the spirit of Life, Truth, and Love can grow into a powerful force. Welcome him! Make a fresh start! Let the cure for America start with you!
America needs prayer… Not just any prayer - but the prayer of the righteous.
We are made righteous by the gift of Christ. Celebrate this and we are already celebrating the turnaround!

Who needs another tacky sweater or a way to watch video on a 2″ nano screen?
This Christmas, my family will worship Christ, not Capitalism.
The stores and merchants will just have to do without our annual spending spree.
Some family or village in Africa will get goats and chickens instead.
Jesus gave his life to us not his money. Do him proud!
Try giving life and hope to somebody this Christmas instead of bling and hoopla!

I am very excited to be here. I can’t wait to share one of my testimonies with all of you.
Back in 1977-1979 I had 4 miscarriages. I thought I’d never have children. Yet, I believed.
So, in 1978 I was told I was pregnant. I was very grateful. This pregnancy was surely a test of my faith.
Early on during my pregnancy, my baby’s head was down ready to be delivered. The only thing wrong?
She was not due until late in Feb. of 1979. During one of my visits to the Doctors’ office he had
4 colleages of his to come in and see this “circumstance”. I was 100 % e faced, and 3 cm dialted. They
Could actually see the baby’s head! I was told then, to go into the hospital. I was in the hospital for
3 weeks in the month of June. During which time my doctor put me on bed rest. I was admitted again
to the hospital for bleeding. This stay lasted the month of October. During which they were trying a
new medication for pre term labor patients. I was given an Alcoholic Drip. This ensured I was in
a “drunk” like state, same as baby. Other medications were used; such as one shot for me, to develop
her lungs if she were to be born early. I prayed constently to God. Praising him always. I had 2 more
long hospital stays before giving birth. What I didn’t know was about to happen. I had an I.V. and
in a great deal of pain. One nurse came in and administered Demerol in my I.V. All I can remember is
kind of a floating feeling. As I opened my eyes I could see myself in the bed, with the big nurse on top
of me pressing against my chest. Finally, I was walking along a path with woods on either side of me.
This path was dark because of the trees. I did see a very bright light near the end of the woods. I followed
the light. As I stepped into the light I heard a very big voice say, “Cindy!, Go back. It is not your time!”
I answered saying, “But, it is beautiful here.” “There is no pain, I feel so good, I don’t want to go back.”
The voice replied “Cindy! Your baby girl needs you, so go NOW!” Next thing I remember was me back in
the hospital in the corner of my room watching the nurses scramble for the crash cart! As fast as all
this took place, It felt an enternity for me. I was back in my body; shoving the nurse away, and taking
the oxygen off my face. Then, it occured to me. There was no way of knowing what the sex of the baby
was going to be. Where had I been? I had been talking to God! The rest of the time waiting for an ok
to deliver finally came. Amanda Gale was born into this world as I was beginning my 8th month of
pregnancy. Weighing in at 5lbs 4 ounces and 18 1/2 inches long! She was a miracle. Children are
miracles lent to us by God. We raise them up as we should, and then let them go out into the world.
My testimony always helps me get centered if things are not going along as “I’ want them to.
It is not when “I” want things to happen. I know now to “wait” in “God’s own timing”. He knows the when,
where, how, and why things happen the way they do to all of us!
Thanks for letting me share this!

The best kind of Christian Blogs are Testimonies.
As believers, we are supposed to be IN the world, but not OF the world.
What does this mean? It means we should not be far away in monasteries or removed from the day to day struggles of life. We should have the same issues other people have.
BUT… We should look different, act different, handle our challenges in a different way.
Sharing 0ur own story, our process, about who we are, what we have gone through, and how we respond to it is the most powerful thing we can do. This is our testimony. As Christ lives in us, we become the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIGHT for others. We become gates into the new city. Others come to faith first through being attracted to us. Then, they want to know what we have that others don’t. We point them to Christ and the Holy Spirit does the rest….
Yes, we need to know the word, and we need to be ready in season and out to share with others about the Lord. BUT FIRST - we need to BE REAL.
Christ was a person who was AMONG the PEOPLE. And he lived out loud. The apostles learned to tell first person stories about who they used to be, and who they became in the LORD.
ORDINARY MEN AND WOMEN, transformed by the living Christ, telling our stories, will do more for the kingdom than any streetcorner preaching or great sermons or memorized verses.
Along those lines, I recently met a blogger who has a fantastic testimony and a heart that follows hard after Jesus.
Please allow me to introduce you to Will McCullough. Will is a man’s man who is now the Lord’s man. As a Marine, he learned about fighting and winning. Now he is fighting and winning a new battle. He is being trained up by the Holy Spirit and fashioned into a new kind of warrior.
Please read his story at http://pulledthroughthenarrowdoor.blogspot.com and drop him a word of encouragement. BUT… no platitiudes… The WORD Gives LIFE and so we want to give life to Will and not empty recitations of verses that “ShouldaCouldAughta” mean something.

I once was lost but now am found.
A life of sin was saved by grace.
I was equipped with the ability to serve God’s people this way. I am grateful to serve.
