Which Garden do you Prefer?

Teresa Poucher I’ve seen rock gardens in Colorado, flower gardens in Hawaii, and vegetable gardens in Louisiana.  However, none of these intrigue me like the Garden of Gethsemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives.  Yes, it was full of olive trees.  Olive trees are known to live 5,000 years. Some of the very trees Jesus prayed under could still beContinue reading “Which Garden do you Prefer?”

What has Your Attention?

Teresa Poucher Elijah went face to face with “… prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.” (I Kings 18:19)   He mocked them at mount Carmel after they spent hours of sacrifice, worship, leaping, and cutting themselves until their blood gushed out.Continue reading “What has Your Attention?”

Waiting on your Lazarus Miracle

Teresa Poucher You have heard a word from God or received a promise.  How long has it been?  A couple of weeks, perhaps months?  A few years, possibly decades?       Okay, I  know you have prayed, or you wouldn’t have heard from God.  It’s only been a few weeks, and I know you have praised and thanked Him. The years are passing, and I’mContinue reading “Waiting on your Lazarus Miracle”

Wounded Warriors

Teresa Poucher  The valley of dry bones — talk about an adventure!  So in the valley lay a multitude of very dry bones.  They are scattered abroad.  Was the whole army destroyed?  How many survived?  I wonder why this exceedingly great army wasn’t buried?  In ancient times, the burial of the dead was considered very important.      When we are born again, we become soldiers of the cross.  WeContinue reading “Wounded Warriors”

I’ve Seen too Much

Teresa Poucher   It’s all over the TV and the internet:  Gay Pride Month and “so-called” religious folks cursing, saying they deserve to go to hell.      I recall Sodom and Gomorrah in the book of Genesis.  I want to point out that Abraham had just heard from the angel that he would soon have his long-awaited, promised son.  He must have been super-excited.       Then the Lord told Abraham about Sodom’s imminent destruction.  He didn’t say, “Good, I don’t want myContinue reading “I’ve Seen too Much”

Mission Impossible

  I remember watching mission impossible when I was a child.  Do you recall the intro to the show? Wasn’t it catchy?    The special agent was given a tape recording of the mission and an opportunity to accept the assignment.  It was always dangerous and improbable.  However, they had great resources if they accepted the mission.  Then the tape would self-destruct. https://youtu.be/4y9NtHlJvbY     Today, many missions are beforeContinue reading “Mission Impossible”
