Power Struggle © 1999 Debbie Turner Chavers Have you ever noticed that we are given dominion over spirits and earthly things, but we are not to dominate one another? To enslave others by our choices or lifestyle. We are called to serve one another. Matthew 20:25 The Lord has given us dominion to manage our life here on the earth. We have been given dominion by the power of His name. Mark 16:17 and Psalm 8:1-9, 1 Peter 4:11 Consider the spirit of the gift we have been given (1 John 4:6) versus the spirit of this world. ( Ephesians 2:2). Luke 10:19-20  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you: but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. We are to be submitted  to  God first in all things .  We are not to manipulate one another by our own desires. We have been set free in Chr

Do Not Whisper

My oldest granddaughter and I were sitting at her small table having a snack, sharing a moment.  Sometimes during these moments of sweet fellowship with my granddaughter I tend to speak softly, almost conspiratorially. But this time as I spoke she said "Don't whisper" and I asked "Why?" To which she replied, "Don't whisper, because I love you!"  I smiled and said "Alright, I love you too. I won't whisper." She was so serious about her request that I  prayerfully considered our interaction during our meal together. As I thought about it, the Lord brought the scriptures in Matthew 10:27 and Matthew 5:14 to my mind. So...I am not whispering . We are a city set on a hill.. Let us shine. What God whispers in our ear, we preach from the housetops! Do not whisper, because He loves us. ~Debbie Matthew 21:15-16   And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children c

Memorial Poem: When You Think of Me

Mark Chavers 1961-2015 Even now, it is still difficult to write this, to say out loud that a dear brother and brother-in-law has left this life to be with Jesus forever more. We as his family are comforted knowing he is safely in heaven, yet miss his unique input in all our lives.  Mark's oldest daughter, Heather Chavers James has written a poem to share with our families as we had the first of many holidays without his ridiculous sense of humor.  We all lend a unique perspective of life during our lifetime.  Mark's ability to make my husband laugh was a gift. A gift of agreement between two brothers on the ridiculousness of life and living. I grieve the loss of this bond between my husband and his younger brother, but I thank God for the fellowship of fights wrestled through, arguments settled and laughter that rang sweet and true. ~Debbie                   When You Think of Me written by Heather Chavers James A Memorial Poem for her Daddy Each yea
