Note: The following testimonies and photos are for the Glory of God and His Goodness. It is wonderful to partner with the Heavenly Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit to help people move from dark to light, bondage to freedom, and struggle to destiny.

During trying and stretching times, it is easy to grow fearful, discouraged, or enraged. During the month of June, I found myself cycling through a wave of emotions. As a result, I could feel tensions rise inside. I was thankful the Lord spoke to my heart and recalibrated me. I heard the words in my mind, “You are more focused on what the enemy is doing, than what I am doing.”

The Heavenly Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit directed me to Psalm 126. This section of Scripture speaks about coming out of captivity. The enemy can hold a person in bondage to almost anything. Perhaps you know somebody who struggles with excessive alcohol consumption or depression. These are two examples of captivity the Lord is desiring to break people free of.

The ministry house Dawn and I live at, has opened the doors to a small group so we can start having church meetings again. The others watch online. We filmed the service pertaining to the topic of, “Coming Out of Captivity.” It was a powerful service that helps people receive freedom and refocus on God.

We also want to say, “Thank you” to every person who makes it possible for us to stay in full-time ministry.

Going Bananas?

By Dawn R. Pietsch

Is everyone going Bananas? If so, I hope you're all getting your potassium! Hahaha! Literally, I was staring at the bananas on my counter, and this is what came to me. We’re all wanting to hear a word from God, about what to do in these days and in these times. How do we handle ourselves in the midst of chaos? Are we seeking the Lord, or are we trying to handle it in our flesh?

The Scriptures say in Matthew 26:41 (The Passion Translation):

41 Keep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. You should have learned by now that your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is weak.

These are trying times, and we have to remain focused on Jesus. Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our Faith. (See Hebrews 12:2.) It takes faith to, "walk by faith and not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7), especially when things around us look a bit chaotic!

We have to keep our focus on Jesus! Continually ask, "Jesus, what are You doing?" "Jesus, what do You want me to know?" "Jesus, what do You want me to do?" Dialoguing with Jesus the whole time, even moment by moment, staying out of the fear, but responding with faith in God!

This will bring you back into alignment with Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and you will be able to see now with a clearer perspective. We love and serve a Good God, and we are His children, so look to Heaven for your answers.
