Vision 2011

"Where there is no vision, the people perish..."
Proverbs 29:18

Do you have vision for this new season?
My prayer for you as you look forth into this new season, this new year, the year of "Reconciliation," is that you would see outside the proverbial box and proclaim this to be your finest hour.

Elizabeth Edwards had the heart of an advocate and I appreciated her voice.
If we don't step up, there will be many more lives ending this way.
As an advocate, myself and a survivor of two different stage 4's, it makes me angry! As a breast cancer si
ster of Elizabeth's, it makes me sad.
These are the facts:
1) This year, cancer passed heart disease as the leading cause of death in the US.
2) It is estimated that by 2020, one out of two people will be diagnosed sometime in their lifetime.
3) We lose the same amount of people every other day to cancer as we did on 911.
When will congress GET IT???!!!!!!!
I stood on Capital Hill alongside 199 of my Livestrong constituents and we vowed to go to war as Nixon did in 1975 and as we know, no cure.
We have to take the ribbons off! We have to get serious!
My son will not go through what I have been through, I declare it! He will not ever see the trenches of cancer, I decree it!
You may not think you can do anything and you can't do everything but you can do something... and please be careful where you donate your funds.
Be sure your funds go to research, resources and recovery. Don't pad administrator's pockets.
We have to go to the very root of the problem, not scrap the surface

Take Your Shoes Off!

For weeks, the message of Joshua 5:13 has been pressing in on me....

Not all of the giants in our lives are our enemies. 
In fact, I would have to testify that the giants in my life brought me into promise lands I would have never entered into of my own accord. 

Joshua was by Jericho when a man stood before him. We have to calculate that this man was that of giant stature because the scripture explains to us that Joshua had to lift up his eyes to look upon him. The giant stood before him with a drawn sword and Joshua, who was use to fighting, asked the giant if he was "Friend" or "Foe". The man's reply to Joshua was that he was the Commander of the army of the Lord. Then the angel proceeded to command Joshua to remove his shoes for he was standing on holy ground. 

As children of God, no matter where we are currently standing in life or what the giants may appear to be, we can take our shoes off and feel at home; feel safe. These battles that life has conditioned us to fight belongs to God. The man proclaimed himself to be the Commander of the army of the Lord, which makes the situation clear that we have an army of God at our disposal. He commands His angels to take charge over us and I have watched Him do this in my own life, time after time.. battle after battle.

Most people say after cancer, you have to live the "New Normal" but I say, why would you want "Life as normal" or "Life as usual" after you have experienced this kind of Amazing Grace. 

So as you look up at the giants that stand before you in your own life...put away your sword, take off your shoes, and feel at home as these battles belong to the Lord and you're standing on holy ground.
