Teresa Poucher “…and the house to be built for the Lord must be exceedingly magnificent, famous, and glorious throughout all countries. I will now make preparation for it. So David made abundant preparations before his death.” (1 Chronicles 22:5) “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would haveContinue reading “Saying Goodbye”

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?”
Teresa Poucher “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee…” (Genesis 12:1) I can imagine what may have gone through Abram’s mind: “Say what? Are you sure, God? You want me toContinue reading “Get Out”
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”
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”
Teresa Poucher Some people love to stir the pot; they are confrontational. You know the type: “Don’t go to bed mad; stay up and fight all night.” I don’t like to fight; I avoid fights and usually walk away. However, some things are worth fighting for. “And it came to pass, after the yearContinue reading “Fight Back”
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”
Teresa Poucher While at Walmart the other day, I passed a young mother in the baby formula section. I felt terrible for her. I could tell by the look on her face, they did not have what her baby needed. I wonder how many stores she had already been to. Where is the wheat bread? Many things cause me to wonder: Why are we payingContinue reading “I Wonder”
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”
