He is Risen. Those precious words hold the power for our Christian Faith. For without the resurrection our faith would be in vain. As you celebrate His Victory over death this Resurrection Sunday, remember that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead now resides in us as believers so that we can live victoriously in this world and bring glory to His name. Now that is something to celebrate.
Happy Resurrection Sunday,

Cornerstone Church Womens Retreat

I, Sherry, had the privilege of speaking at a women's retreat for the Cornerstone Church in Mayfield Ohio on April 8 -9. The whole theme of the retreat was a Closer Walk With Jesus. I took our daughter Jen and we had a fun girl's weekend.

The women of this church had such sweet spirits and were very receptive to the messages that the Lord gave me. The first session was all about The Things That Hinder Us from our walk. I taught from Heb. 12:1 - 2 about laying aside every hindrance. The second session was about the importance of having an Exposed Heart before the Lord, we investigated what the bible had to say about our hearts and then talked about the different Heart attitudes necessary for a closer walk. The final session was A Devoted Life and we talked about what this looks like in the believers life.

I think the Lord ministered to each of us as we allowed him to search our hearts. I for one know it was a memorable weekend for my daughter and me.

The Heart

Proverbs 4:23 says: "Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life."

Luke 6:45 says: "The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart."

Is it any wonder why the Psalmist prayed in Psalm 139:23 -24, "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way,"?

We want to challenge you this week to LISTEN to what is coming out of your mouth, and then you will KNOW what is really in your heart. And when you find out then run to your Father and pray Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me." Because remember, from the heart flow the issues of life.

Blessings, PW and Sherry
