Joy Attracts Joy!

On September 19 we will celebrate the beginning of the Hebrew month of Tishrei and the New Year called Rosh Hashanah.

The new year is always in the month of Tishrei and comes with opportunities for revelation about the year ahead.

This month is called the gate of new beginnings. It implies that God will give a "do-over" (how about a do-over of 2020) just saying...

He redeems our time, our faith, our health, our money, our job, our nation - whatever needs redemption.

Here's the key to that: do not try to figure out "how" He redeems all that. Just believe it. Be-Alive In It.

This is a time to bring all the 'redemption worthy stuff' before God.

We can do that at any time! But, during this time-frame there is a particular grace on new beginnings.

Remember, grace is God's ability to do in you what you cannot do for yourself. It is the gift of God.

All the past issues that brought an absence of life, joy, a sense of prospering, have the potential of being broken off.

Grace activates faith to believe for the new and good in the midst of every bad, old thing that follows you (like your shadow)!

Grace activates new things that are overflowing with abundance and goodness.


Not only do we expect new things, it is a season of return. Things stolen or scattered, come back. This story is so cool. Many years ago a man of God was asleep in his room on a foreign field assignment. The window was open, the wind began to blow, his bed shook and moved across the room. In a chair at the end of the bed sat the devil. The man sat up and said, "Oh, it's just you, get out of here and by the way, put it back." His bed moved into its place across the room and the devil left:)

Today evil is syncing its power with government, media, economy and religion. BUT, DeeAnn and I want to say this - "the evil one touches you not." I John 5:18 AMP is an anchor for us right now.

"We know absolutely that any one born of God does not deliberately practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him - Christ's divine presence within him, preserves him against the evil - and the wicked one does not lay hold on him or touch him."

*You will not come under evil's power and intimidation.
*You have everything you need for life and Godliness.
*You are bold and very courageous.
*You are fully engaged in the new.

God uses our voice to release His will. Heaven is invading the earth and it is time for kingdom occupation.
We exercise our redemptive rights as sons of God. We say with authority - Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.
We direct that decree into every area and sphere that is clashing with the Biblical worldview and faith-based principles we hold in our hearts.

We appreciate you, bless you and pray that you prosper, be in health and experience new joys, relationships, new strength, new revelation...a whole lot of new stuff. Thank you for praying, giving, blessing and standing with us. None of what you do is taken for granted.

*Because of covid, the outside re-do of our building got put on hold. Hopefully they will get started in the next few weeks. If you haven't sown into this project and feel led to, please give online through the website, text to give or through the mail. Thanks for your generosity! So appreciated! We are happy to be aligned with you.

Joy Attracts Joy,
