Everyday Yielding

Posted on April 9, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Years ago when I started to work at America’s Keswick, Chaplain John Caruthers was working in the Colony of Mercy.  He was known for a sign on the side of his file cabinet that read simply, YIELD!  On occasion he also would pound his fist on the podium either in the Dining room or the […]

Another chair by the window…

Posted on April 9, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

With the intensity of the circumstances down a few notches, I find myself staring out the window again. This time though, my mind is racing through the many thoughts that presented themselves over the past year… such things as Jeremiah’s promise that God’s plans are for good and not harm; or Jesus’ invitation to find […]

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY

Posted on April 8, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Proverbs 18:17 (NASB) “the first to please his case seems right, until another comes and examines him.” I have often said it would be foolish of me to tell a lie or a distorted story because I talk with so many people about the same subjects I couldn’t keep the distortions straight!!! We live in […]

People Pleasing

Posted on April 8, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe… It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man… Stop regarding man in whose nostrils is breath, for of what account is he?[i] Why is it that what people think of us matters so much?  All the praise in the […]

Throne of Grace

Posted on April 7, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Why is it that we wait so long to ask for help? Is it because we are not confident that there is help… or even someone who cares enough to risk helping us? There is a powerful promise and invitation given by our God for His children “to come boldly to the throne of our […]

Is your Heart Full of Joy?

Posted on April 7, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

…the joy of the LORD is your strength.  (Nehemiah 8:10b) I remember once, we had a speaker at church who asked us, “Do you still have a tear in the corner of your eye for the things of the Lord?”  Have we become so complacent that we no longer have a tear of joy in the […]

Tracing God’s presence with His People

Posted on April 6, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

ou make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11) The presence of God is vital to every Christ-follower.  Moses did not want to proceed on their journey unless God Himself was going with them to the extent that unless God was going, Israel was not […]

The Salt Within

Posted on April 6, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” Colossians 4:6 (NKJV)   Salt is essential for life. It’s recommended that folks should consume about 5 grams of the stuff a day because the sodium in this NaCI chemical compound serves as an […]

The Day After Easter

Posted on April 5, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

I trust that you had a blessed Easter. It has been a very special time for our Keswick family as we have reflected on the events leading up to Resurrection Sunday. I shared with you that I have been working through Paul David Tripp’s Journey to the Cross. I want to share this passage with […]

God is Bigger than you Think

Posted on April 5, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Recently on my way home, I was listening to the Key Life radio program when Steve Brown made this compelling statement: God is bigger than you think.  God is bigger that you CAN think.  – Pastor Steve Brown God is knowable. Comprehensible? No, but knowable. Imagine if you and I could comprehend God.  If we could wrap […]

Mysterium Fidei (The Mystery of Faith)

Posted on April 2, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, You have established strength because of Your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. – When I look at your heavens, the work of Your […]

Wisdom of the World or the Truth?

Posted on April 2, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

In all the lies, half-truths, fairy tales and fabrications that the world throws at us, occasionally there’s a small nugget of wisdom that sneaks in.  On a commercial for a cable TV program, I heard one of the characters say, “A moral conscience will only point you in the right direction; it can’t make you […]

Bread Alone…

Posted on April 1, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”  (Matthew 4:4) Here’s what I’m thinking… I’ve begun to look at the word “bread” not just as earthly food, but more as those spiritual things I do.  In our Christian […]

Fountain of Cares

Posted on April 1, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

The fountain in the courtyard spilled over into the pool below; it seemed to reflect the cares that spilled from my soul. As I gazed in silence, I thought about how we let the concerns and anxieties of life overflow our hearts like that fountain, leaving no room for the Spirit to work in our […]
