Recounting miracles of 2016

I recounted some the miracles of 2016. Hope they inspire you that nothing is impossible for God. 

Thank you God for prolonging the life of my friend with Stage IV cancer. You extended life far beyond what doctors said was possible. They were blown away!!!

Thank You God for allowing my business teacher to allow me pray for the sick in class and for You healing a classmate of thyroid cancer and my teacher of chronic pain. 

Thank You for healing the lady with breast cancer. Her doctors were baffled at the disappearing of tumors. 

Thank You for opening deaf ears. It was joy watching a person hear, enjoy sound. 

Thank You for pulling several patients/family out of ICU or the hospital and doctors saying, “No surgery is needed.” 

Thank You for healing/restoring people with dissociative identity disorder and chronic demonic harassment. For accomplishing in several hours what takes doctors years. 

Thank You for delivering power! 

Thank You for healing the mentally ill. 

Thank You for the baby given to the women who had a hysterectomy. Doctors could not figure out how someone with no womb could be pregnant with a child. 

Thank You for healing my dad’s close friend of chronic, crippling bulging disk pain. Thank You he went on to tell everyone what Jesus did for him, leading others to believe in Jesus. 

Thank You for the family members that gave their hearts and lives to Jesus. Thank You so much Jesus. 

Thank You for more volunteers for street ministry and a multiethnic/multi denominational/multigenerational team. 

Thank You for saving my life from death or great harm over and over. 

Thank You for the backs healed, the knees healed, the lifting of chronic pain. Healing that prevented surgeries. 

Thank You for those You provided free medical and dental care for through the free clinic. 

Thank You for healing the two people with internal bleeding. You did in a moment what would have required so much more. 

Thank You for speaking life to dry and dead bones! Live! Thank You for everything You brought to life at Your command. 

More than what You do, thank You for all You are. Thank You God. 

May you and I believe for greater things in 2017.

Love in Christ,

The Greatest Gift (Merry Christmas & Happy Chanukah) 

Photo Source: Pinterest

On this glorious Sunday morning, I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah. 

Though scholars have estimated Jesus was most likely born in Autumn, it is still wonderful to celebrate His birth. 

What a life! If I were to name one hero who walked this earth, it would be Jesus. 

Love came down to a world filled with chaos and sin. He left paradise for a sinful, broken world. He did not come as a fully grown man. He humbled Himself to enter the world as we do, as a baby. 

He grew, learned to navigate through our world with the limitations of being human. 

He did not remain a baby, He grew to be a man of wisdom, and authority. Jesus demonstrated what one person fully yielded to God the Father could accomplish. 

The same Jesus who was before the foundations of the earth, took on flesh, dwelt among us, and eventually took on our sins on a rugged cross. 

He did not give His life for the innocent. He gave His life for the guilty. 

You and I were enemies of God. Yet He chose to pay a price we could not pay. 

What a gift! What a Savior!!

This is a time of year where people spend time buying gifts or giving gifts. I can think of no better gift than God. The Father gave His Son. The Son gave His life. All so you and I could have everlasting life. He is the gift that keeps on giving. 

We have been given through the Son: 

  • Access to God the Father. No longer must be perform cleansing rituals to be in His presence. 
  • Forgiveness of Sins and New Life. There is nothing we can do to make ourselves righteous before God. So He, through our repentance and faith, gives us His Righteousness. 
  • Our Names Written in the Lambs Book of Life. Those in Christ have a destiny sealed in eternity, with God (Revelation 21:27).
  • Every Spiritual Blessing in the Heavenlies in Christ Jesus. Read Ephesians 1:3. 
  • Relationship with God. The greatest gift of all. 
  • And So Much More! 

Today and every day may you and I give thanks for the greatest gift to ever be given to our world. May we not only celebrate family and friendships, and enjoy the passing of gifts to one another, may we celebrate the greatest gift of all; God. 

He has blessed the world with so many miracles, too many to count. He has provided for His people. He has done great wonders. He has been the greatest gift throughout the centuries. God is the gift that will never grow old nor decay. It is His sustaining life that awakened us today! 

From my home to yours I bless you! May you feel the warmth of God’s incredible embrace and reflect on all He is and all He has done for you. 

Warm Wishes and Great Love, 

Erin Lamb

God Wants to Connect with You (Devotion) 

Photo Source: Pinterest

Morning Reflection: He is an everyday kind of love. Grow in intimacy with God. 

I love gathering with other believers to celebrate Jesus and love the Body of Christ. Yet following Jesus is more than going to a building on the weekend. 

Following Jesus is being with God Monday through Sunday, chatting with Him daily, communion with God, intimacy with God, hearing His heartbeat, responding to His incredible love. It is a habitation not a visitation, immersion in His glory, partnership with God, being a conduit of His love and power in a dark world. 

The Gospel is not a me centered story or a church centered story. It is God’s story. He is the Author, Finisher of our faith. Jesus is central in the Gospel. 

Following Jesus moves far beyond activity into profound intimacy (knowing God, being with God, and being known by God). Activity will never surpass friendship and sonship. God is after heart, why we do what we do. He is more interested in connection and relationship than our busyness to try to please Him. 

Being with God is far more important than doing for God. Being leads to doing with the proper motive and the grace to accomplish the activity. 

Being with God is not about laziness or passivity. It is about love. Love seeks to give. We surrender all of who we are to all of who He is. He does the same. Can we simply sit for a moment each day and love the One who loves us most? 

If we are driven by activity instead of intimacy and abiding with God, our source is flesh. Only what flows through His Spirit is pure. Apart from God there is not abundant good fruit (John 15:4-5). May you and I continually invest in knowing God for who He is and not the God made in our own image. May we pursue Him for who He is, not for what He has to offer. May we surrender and worship because He is worthy, not so He can bless us. God is good. He is worthy of it all. 

In every season may we dive deeper into God’s love, and get to know Him. 

God bless you! You are SOooooo deeply loved.

Love in Christ, 

Erin Lamb

I See You Poem-Love Letter from Papa God (Book Excerpt) 

  
I have not posted anything from the book lately, so I thought it might be time. In a busy world one may feel invisible or that God’s love is a blanket love. Both are false. God sees you. He loves you. He cares about every detail of your life. He also loves each of us as if there were only one of us. His heart cries out, “I see you. I know you. I love you. I will always love you.” 

I See You

Written by Erin Lamb (Copyright 2011)
Original pen date July 29, 2010

“A Love Letter from Abba.”

I see you,

when the walls have closed in,

the winds have raged too long,

and your heart is tattered and worn.

I see you

in your moments of desperation,

when all else has failed you

and your heart says, “I just can’t 

take it anymore.

I see you,

when your tears are so great

they have drowned out faith

and left their stains on your face.

I see you,

when you feel isolated and alone.

I see you,

when the doors have slammed

and you don’t know where to turn.

I see you,

when others seem to look away.

I see your distress

and your shattered dreams.

I see the aches and the distress

that you carry from day-to-day.

I see you.

I know you.

I am near to you.

I see you.

I love you,

and I can heal your every pain.

I see you.

I desire you to know;

My love can fill every vacant area in 

your heart.

I have been here to love you from 

the start.

I see you;

the things inside you

that even you can’t see.

My love pierces into the depths of 

where you need mended,

your heart tended,

and the places where the healing 

needs to take place.

I see you,

and only I can make you fulfilled in 

Me.

There is no other love that will take 

you to the highest heights,

so you overflow

and continue to spill over with love, 

joy, and peace.

The sincere desire of My heart is for 

you to know

that I will never let you go.

My love for you will not fail.

My love for you will not end.

My love for you is here for the 

taking.

So when your heart aches,

look up and notice My arms 

reaching for you.

I am here waiting to hold you in an 

affectionate embrace.

I see you,

and I love you.

I will love you, always.
