Yet again I have had to focus on my physical health. As is often the case, I had done well for a period of time, watching my weight and exercising, then came stress and with it some old habits. I finally got disgusted with how I felt and I began to discipline my eating and […]

Posted on October 22, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“For in much wisdom is much grief, And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.” Ecclesiastes 1:18   I drink diet soda and use artificial sweetener, I’m often posed with the question, “Do you know what that stuff does to you?” My response is, “No, and I don’t wanna know”.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 (CSB)   Why do we Christians use touché zingers to evangelize people?

Posted on October 21, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

One of my favorite magazines is called “Keepers at Home.” I love the simplicity of it and the great articles and devotions for wives and mothers.

Rush in where others fear to tread…

Posted on October 20, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

In my mind, I see myself rushing at every obstacle and prayer request like David did at Goliath. I want to be shouting, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have […]

Crises Don’t Make Us, They Reveal Us.

Posted on October 19, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Remember, it is not enough to be hit or insulted to be harmed, you must believe that you are being harmed.

Which is why it is essential that we not respond impulsively to impressions; take a moment before reacting, and […]

“I Didn’t Expect THAT!”

Posted on October 19, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Do you know what one of my least favorite places in the world is?   No, it’s not the DMV. No, it’s not the dentist. No, it’s not even the doctor’s office.   It’s the auto mechanic shop.   I can’t stand going to get my car repaired. Not only does it take up so […]

How Do You Pray?

Posted on October 16, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

I am going to make myself very vulnerable by being honest. I suppose there are dozens of ways to pray. Is there a proper way or a best way?   There are a few people I know who pray beautifully, exquisitely. One lady in our church prays so well, extemporaneously, no notes, that I heard […]

No Hopeless Cases

Posted on October 15, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“Despairingly the poor disappointed father turned away from the disciples to their Master.

Thy Will Be Done

Posted on October 15, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“The mightiest are those who trust in the Lord and obey Him, no matter how impossible things appear” ~ Bloom   All too often when we tell the stories of victories we leave out the dark nights and lonely hours of tears and struggles.

Being Content In All Things

Posted on October 13, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  (Philippians 4:13)   It’s a wonderful verse.  It is used in so many of the challenging, difficult and overwhelming situations that we face.  We share it with folks when they – or we – are going through a hard time.  It’s also a powerful marketing […]

Posted on October 9, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

If you are like me, whenever I have read this verse (Phil. 4:19), I have always kind of assumed that it meant my PHYSICAL needs — whatever they might be. However, something happened in the life of a friend of mine this week that got me to thinking differently about it. My long-time friend lost […]
