By Martha Bush “There's three people here tonight who need Jesus,” the minister had said at the close of his sermon. After two people raised their hands and a long eerie silence prevailed over the congregation, I raised my hand and proclaimed, “I am that other person.” With that confession,... Continue reading

By Martha Bush “There are three people here tonight who need Jesus,” the minister had said at the close of his sermon. Immediately, two people raised their hands, and what followed next was an eerie silence that swept over the congregation that seemed as long as eternity. Tightly clutching the... Continue reading

Last week, we talked... Continue reading

By Martha Bush Last week, I started writing a series of posts on a research project I did a few years ago to find out the effects of Society on The Church in America, as well as the effects The Church had on Society. You can read Part 1 here.... Continue reading

By Martha Bush It was June, 1993, and Melba Berkehimer, Assistant Pastor of Community Church, Orange, Texas, approached me and said: “It has been brought to our attention by certain members of our church that they believe God is speaking specific directions for the church through David in his sermons...

There have been so many family outings canceled this year because of that... Continue reading

By Martha Bush “Rise up! I have set the land before you. I yoke myself up with you, and the way that you go, I’ll be there to hold you up. You are free!” That prophetic word is how I began this series on Possess the Land. I have written... Continue reading

By Martha Bush For the last couple of weeks, we have been on a journey together – the same journey the Israelites took on their way to The Promised Land. We re-visited our time spent in The Wilderness – a place of testing our faith. It was there that we... Continue reading

By Martha Bush In my last post, The Wilderness Years, I outlined what the wilderness is and what the wilderness is not. Remember: the wilderness is not a place where land is possessed. The wilderness is: a place of transition from our old thoughts and patterns of responding a place... Continue reading

Cindy, all is not lost in The Wilderness experience. Just as you said, its been a struggle, but you have been growing in your faith and dependence on Him. It is a strange this, isnt? Hard, yet that is where we learn. So excited to take this journey with you. And yes, the SUMite Community is a Godsend for me, too.

How interesting, Ian, that you have started to read Joshua again---that is where I am going for awhile in the next few posts. I think we are on a journey that has taken us into the land---our season for the promise land to manifest. I am so excited to be taking this journey with you.

Lynn, funny thing. I wrote this in my journal before I met you in 2011. And I wrote it as telling my story, but writing it in good form, as if someone else would read it. And lo and behold!! I had not planned to go this direction until last week---as a matter of fact, I didn't know where I was going with the next blog post, and then it happened. Got a few more posts around this time period to share. Yes, when I started reading MAJ and saw you talk about possessing the land and around your Jericho, I knew I was with you. Oh yes! Let's help others. Love yu.

I am so happy for you, Bonnie, that your next season is in The Promised Land. Let's journey together---it is an exciting place where you will begin to see things happening--just like you dreamed of---rivers of life and joy and peace. But, most of all things new. Stay with me, and let's make this journey together. Thank you so much for telling me this.

I have kept journals for years that are very detailed. I have been reading through some of them recently, and I feel a nudge from the Holy Spirit to do certain things to some of the things I read. Some things I have burned in my fire pit outside, somethings I have held up before the Lord and ask forgiveness for my part in it, some things I have broken generational behaviors, attitudes, physical problems from passing down; some things I have asked the Lord to show me if there is a soul wound that is affecting me, as you wrote about, Lynn. I know that I learned from those years, and taught a lot of the teachings that I learned, but, it was like the Lord was showing me "it is time to move on to a new a new encounter, a new anointing for this hour. Because of that, I am excited about what I believe is to come from all of this. I look forward to October, and anticipate great things.

This list is a good one to print out and take into our prayer closets, wherever that closet may be, and come into agreement with. Thanks.

I well remember the first time years ago that I came across that scripture in Matt. and did not have a clue what it meant. After much study, I soon found out, and that time period became, shall I say, a "Kingdom Ruled Event. I just love this: These are crazy people who will not stop until they fully experience the Kingdom of God and the Words that Jesus spoke. I join with you and a community of doing it again - this time for nation. We shall take it!! Amen.

You are so right about how deep shame can go. We saw this play out among women in the jail ministry we were a part of. It was so hard to get across to them that their past was in the past once they accepted Jesus. On the other hand, in the men's prison, it did not seem as prevalent. What are your thoughts with people you pray with? Are women more sensitive to shame than men? (just wondering - wait until you get off your trip to answer)

Oh, I hear you on that one. I think I write more to myself than anyone else. I thought I was past this one, but I found I had to do a little touch up. Thank God for His Grace.

By Martha Bush This past month, my posts have centered around Lynn’s quote in Marching Around Jericho, in which she noted that there are several key components to solidifying our identity in Christ. One of those key components was to reject lies regarding our identity and embracing Sonship. (pg. 71-72)... Continue reading

Gill, I just have to tell you what the next line in my journal said that I didn't write in my above comment. "This is quite interesting that I would call it the last trimester. In pregnancy, the last is the hardest, hearing the approaching birth. If this is any indication, I started off with a bang yesterday." I think we are all on to something, don't you?
