Risen debuts today: Roman military tribune Clavius (Joseph Fiennes) remains set in his ways after serving 25 years in the army. He arrives at a crossroad when he’s tasked to investigate the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) following the Crucifixion. Accompanied by trusted aide Lucius (Tom Felton), his quest to disprove rumors of a risen Messiah makes him question his own beliefs and spirituality. As his journey takes him to places never dreamed of, Clavius discovers the truth that he’s been seeking. Go to the bottom of this post for “The PluggedIn Movie Review of Risen.”

PrayerWorks: Thank you for your prayers. A couple months ago I shared that I was concerned about my husband and possible early Alzheimer’s. Your prayers for me and us have helped. I have peace now! Thank you. The Lord is so good to us! I have more peace and I was able to fine resources on the Alzheimer’s website. I even got a very long explanation from a social worker who answers people’s questions on this disease. I know the Lord will guide me through this and I feel more at ease. Thanks so much and God Bless you all! Cathy
PluggedIn Movie Review: “Risen”
“I’m yet sticky with filth.” – So the Roman tribune Clavius tells a messenger when he’s summoned to appear before Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea. No matter, the man says. Pilate summons you. And when a man with the power Pilate wields summons you, obedience is the only option. Continue reading
Ephesians 3:19: …know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
If you were to thank God for something today, what would it be? For me, it would be thanking God for giving me Jesus. my family and you. For when I see Jesus on the cross, I see the love of God overcoming everything for me.
I find as each of us worship and celebrate the love of Jesus in our lives, we will find ourselves changed! It reminds me of the life of David. His personal times with God, helped him see God’s love for him, It changed him from a mere shepherd boy to a lion killer, bear killer, giant killer and finally, a king over Israel. God will do that for you today!
I believe you can truly enjoy living in this world with God’s strength in your life, when you focus on time with God! When you invest time, you find God’s favor in every area of your life! In your work, relationships, health, finances, you will find God’s protection, increase, health and healing for youself. Man or woman can survive emotionally, socially or physically with God’s tender touch, loving presence, sweet assurance and words of life in times of need.

In the lyrics to ‘Touch the Sky’ Hillsong United paints a picture of …dazzling heights too vast to climb… so high to fall… where heaven’s love sweeps low… Your heart beating… Your soul breathing… You found your life when laid down… Your Upward falling… your Spirit soaring… you touch the sky… When your knees hit the ground! Life is like the lyrics painted in this song. When we hold on to small things, we have a small impact; but if we let go, God can give us something much larger. Do you need to bend low to find yourself lifted up! What treasure waits within Your scars? The gift of freedom gold can’t buy… You bought the world and sold your heart… You find the Most High God at your feet again… You surrender your love to Him and your soul will dance high on the Wings of Forever!

The word “Because” is a favorite one of parents. It’s kind of the default authority word. Say for instance that you tell your child to do something and they ask you why. If you don’t feel like explaining yourself you just say “because.”
You don’t always have to explain yourself when you’re the parent. It’s a key perk.
Of course trust is involved. Your child may not want to obey when your only reason is “because,” but since they have trust in you, they ultimately will. You find this out when you put your faith in Jesus – a Savior who is alive. When you find yourself succumbing to fear and doubt, and you pray expecting an answer, be ready to hear Him say to you the word “because.”
It’s because He wants you to trust Him. He wants you to see your answer played out as time goes by.
Power Thought: “Today will Never come again. Be a Blessing! Be a Friend! Encourage someone. Take time to Care. Let your Words Heal, and not wound.”
PrayerWorks: Prayer Need: My husband is still looking for a job but God will provide the right one for him.
And God has answered our prayers! We sold our house in Georgia. Thank you for all the prayers. God has blessed us in so many ways. I know I would not be where I’m out without him. I moved from out of Texas 10 years ago.
