Recognizing that people are often drawn to the secret things people hide, I genuinely hope those who read this article don’t do so simply for the sake of voyeurism, but in order to be truly affected by a look at the awful realities of the porn industry. Then, I hope people are radically impacted to make a change.
A change begins with one person. You can be part of the solution. Will you?
I am blessed to be marrying a man who lives this brand of integrity, power, and belief daily. I’ve been hurt a lot through the actions of men – especially because I spent three years in the Middle East, where men’s condescension and objectification of me was often palpable. I’m not bitter. I have no interest in blaming all men for the behavior of some. On the contrary, I want every man on earth to shine and fulfill his God-given destiny. Moreover, I want to work, love, and transform the world side-by-side with men. Men are awesome.
And men who love women well are inspirational.
A HUGE thank you to those men. 🙂
These are videos from worship from the last day of my second year of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) on May 11, 2011. As a friend said tonight, “You often don’t know how much bondage you are in until you really get free. Then you wonder how you ever lived with all that stuff.” Really experiencing true freedom, the freedom Jesus paid for, has been a big part of my journey at BSSM. I highly recommend it: the freedom journey.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Yes! Yes! Yes and YES!!!!!!! Live a life led by love and stop worrying about “the law.” Jesus PAID for our freedom from the law. We are free, free, free to live full lives easily being led by Christ alive inside us. Easy Jesus-y does it!
Tell your friends, tell your family, WE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
A message mix from Banning Liebscher’s teaching:
It has been a very interesting and challenging week – with the unexpected turns related to the story in my previous blog post. I’ve definitely been stretched. I’ve definitely found myself saying out loud, “God, what in the world is going on? What do you want me to do? Teach me how to walk in complete peace and not to be offended or defensive. Teach me new wisdom. Help me love better. Help!” I’m really thankful for those who prayed with me when I felt wearied and frustrated. And then I get the great opportunity to re-align myself with an expectation toward amazing redemption of a muddy situation. Thankfully, God makes castles from mud. haha.
And in the midst of that I’ve felt so much love for Brazil and for the nations – really wanting them to all flourish and be who they are designed to be. Even now I tear up, overcome with God’s love for the nations. I’d really like to love more like He does. And in this meditating on the nations I watched a documentary on ending the sex trade in India. My youngest sister is currently in India volunteering in a restoration house for women rescued from sex trafficking.
I wanted to share her blog with y’all. She’s an amazing woman and definitely a hero of mine.
Also, the women make jewelry and crafts as a means of income. Check it out here: http://www.ruhamah.in/
India, you will FLOURISH!!!!!! You are beautiful, colorful, and unique! Sex trafficking will come to an end! India belongs to Jesus! YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
On a similar swatch of fabric, electronic fabric, some friends at BSSM recently put this video together:
I love the collaboration of people from around the world with a common goal. Like a little child in an aquarium, I’m in awe and I’m dazzled. “Oooooo… look at THAT one, Daddy! Look at all this glory swimming about!”
MORE! More glory!
More glory in the nations and through the nations!
