Be Brave, Dear One

[dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']I[/dropcaps]’m currently studying the book of John and all its goodness. The theme of bravery is everywhere! Just look at the woman at the well (John 4), the diseased man by the pool (John 5), and the man born with blindness (John 9) – after their supernatural experiences with Jesus, they all walk away changed! They begin to tell the world around them that they have been healed and they no longer bear the shame of their past.   Having an encounter with Jesus makes us brave!   And not only brave, but unashamed of Who has healed us! These...

Through My Eyes

[dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']I[/dropcaps] am completely in love with "The Church".  It is my heart. I believe in it as God's plan for this broken world! It makes me so excited to know that I, little me, am part of a huge move of God in this world.   When I wake up on Sunday morning I am filled with anticipation! Not because of a religious tradition but because I know what the Holy Spirit can do and that is always exciting!   I love walking through a corridor and seeing different faces, different, stories, different races, different backgrounds, different opinions; same love. The...

Guest Post :: Meeting Jesus by Mary DeMuth

[caption id="attachment_20347" align="alignleft" width="150"] Mary DeMuth[/caption] Editor's Note: Prism Women is honored to be hosting prolific author Mary DeMuth on this week's post. Mary's newest book The Day I Met Jesus, co-authored with Frank Viola, chronicles the women who encountered Christ and were irrevocably changed by him. May Mary's words and prayer stay with you as you venture out into the great wonder and seek to encounter him in the pursuit.              [dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']W[/dropcaps]hen I co-wrote The Day I Met Jesus, I had no idea just how much I would relate to these women. They are not characters in a story; they...

Hope Deferred and the Art of a Good Story  

  [dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']P[/dropcaps]racticed readers know that a story is as good as its first chapter, sometimes its first paragraph. To understand our story within the arc of God’s narrative, the concept doesn’t change: we look to the beginning of the story to understand its end.   In the first book of the Bible, we meet a seventeen-year-old Joseph who has just revealed two dreams he received from the Lord, which prophesy of his unique calling. This news rouses his older brothers’ jealousy. They, in turn, sell him into slavery, which is the means by which Joseph fulfills his prophetic dream and...

We are Invited to the Table

[dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']E[/dropcaps]very once in a while I am overwhelmed by the thought that there are some things that aren’t designed for me to experience. I think this not from a place of defeat or depression, but from the knowledge that there are certain dreams I have placed on the back-burner of my heart and mind.   One of my most beloved movies from childhood (along with 2 million others, I am sure) is Hook. My absolute favorite part is when the Lost Boys and grown Peter Pan are sitting at the table to eat. It appears as though there is nothing to...

Training in Progress

"Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of Him to the other side, while He dismissed the crowd. After He had dismissed them, He went up on a mountainside by Himself to pray. Later that night, He was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw Him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus...
