Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

God can set us free. The truth sets us free.

When Jesus stood in front of the synagogue one day, he read these words from Isaiah:
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed…"

I want to tell you what happened on the radio program yesterday. But first, I have to tell you what happened over the weekend. I knew we did not have a guest for hour 2 on Monday and in those situations I try to keep my eyes peeled. The scripture that kept coming was the scene of Peter walking on the water and losing sight of Jesus and then sinking.

I felt strongly we should talk about that and I wrote a brief devotion about it and posted it Monday morning. (You can read it below.) During the program I asked for calls from people who were looking at “wind” instead of Jesus. “What is your wind?” I asked.

Several people called about the obstacles they see in their lives. For one it’s infertility, another had a daughter with tumors, another was facing unemployment/underemployment. With a few minutes left I took an anonymous call. I called her “Ann” for short.

What transpired was something only God could orchestrate. Ann said that she was a single mom and in order to make money goes to a bar and dances. She said she’s tried to quit many times, but when the bills come due, she goes back to the bar. She doesn’t want to, but she does. Off the air she said when she heard us talking about the wind, she knew she had to call. She said she’d been asking God to help her get free from this.

She seemed hopeful when we spoke off the air and when I mentioned there would be people praying for her, she said, “Use my real name.” I was so proud of her. She wants you to pray for her and her daughter, as well as her roommate (who also wants to quit the exotic dancing) and her daughter.

So today, spend a few moments in prayer for Angelica and Priscilla, as well as Azalia and Jasmine. God wants to set the captives free. He longs for us to come to him and ask for things like this.

Today on the program, we’re going to link Angelica with a woman who used to be in the adult entertainment industry. And in the second hour we’re going to ask you, “How were you able to stop doing something you knew you had to quit?”

Whatever is holding you back today, God wants to meet you at that place. He wants to set you free.

I was bound by smoking for a lot of years, I could not stop on my own. It was torture. I was ugly, frustrated, and so discourgaged when I failed. It was one minute, one hour and one day at a time. My eyes had to stay on Jesus. I had to think it was possiable for me to be a "non-smoker". It was hard on me and harder on my family. But God is so good and faithful.

I did pray for this woman after I heard yesterday's show. Thanks for giving us an update. Once again proof for how responsive God is to our prayers.

Chris I am a newer listener, I just moved to Florida and
have enjoyed listening to you. Regarding ANN oh Chris how many women can relate to her situation and probablly all single mothers. (me too) We have all found ourselves on the road of no choices. Christians sometimes offer advise and prayers...and great but this young woman is in a trap are we going to bless her and walk away leaving it to God and charity? Are we still his hands ? " there must be shelters or people to help" is so often what we hear or say. And indeed there is... The Church! I am not a wealthy person Chris, but together your listeners can give enough to free her from a trap. This is with in our power, its just money keeping this Sister enslaved. Will you consider setting up an Ann fund. How easy for us to set one person free together. Not charity.. Christianity!

reading thru your 40 days of prayer...did feel the urge to pray for these ladies and breaking free from the bondages of sin...God is able to do "exceedingly abundantly above what we think or ask!"
