Middle East Monday: When Loving Your Enemies is Loud

Home. Peace. Feeling nestled in.

These are common desires. However, there are areas of the world where this idea of “home” is less established than hearts would like it to be. One such place is the Palestinian territories. I lived in Israel and Palestine for three years. Stories and snapshots, longings and prayers, activism and belief build bridges from dreams to reality. Awareness is important.

With specific regard to the Tent of Nations, I’ve met some of this family. They are kind, just, and visionary. Their experience should be shared- in hopes that influencers will change the direction of their imminent loss. You can be part of the solution. Spread the word.

Tent of Nations on Upworthy


This is a somewhat spontaneous song I wrote in response to the July 13, 2009 bombings of 5 churches in Baghdad, Iraq. And AMAZINGLY, this song is being translated into Arabic and there is a plan for it to be played at the churches in IRAQ!!!  Hooray! the very people the song was written for will hear it and be inspired to live out their powerful destinies!!!

My apologies for the reverberation from the guitar. I was a barrel over a waterfall rushing with joy and hope while singing… It’s a prophetic proclamation: Baghdad, ALL THINGS NEW! Join with me and declare: BAGHDAD: ALL THINGS NEW! You will live and not die! You are beautiful! You are a fountain of healing! Your streets will be filled with joy and hope!

(In the future there will be a website gathering prophetic songs for cities and regions all over the world. People will be able to look up their region (ie. Middle East) and listen to all the prophetic songs therein! It will be a mighty clarion call and powerful battering ram in the spirit into nations, bringing freedom, hope, and TRUE identity! YAY!) (God showed me this. I don’t plan to make it myself, but I believe someone will. Yippee!)
