“Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic.

A Thousand Choices a Day

Posted on August 16, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Forgiveness. Is it an event? Or a process? Is it based on our feelings or on our choices? God calls us to forgiveness. “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, […]

To Be Seen or Not To Be Seen

Posted on August 15, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

There are times when reading Scripture that it seems to contradict itself. I remember a seminary professor once telling us if Scripture seems to contradict itself or appears to not agree with science or experience, it is our understanding and/or interpretation that is in error NOT the Word of God. If we begin with the […]

He Almost Missed God’s Healing

Posted on August 12, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Naaman, in 2 Kings 5, had leprosy and he was sent to Elisha to heal him. I’m sure Naaman wanted healing and was excited with the possibility. When he arrived “Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, ‘Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall […]

Persistence

Posted on August 12, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it.”  ~ Lombardi How often do we consider giving up?

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinions. It is easy in solitude to live after our own.

The premise of one of my recent classes was that if we want to be set free by the truth we must submit to the Word of truth. John 8:32 says, Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. John 17:17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 2 Timothy […]

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” — Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV) Sometimes doing a look back into your life can lead to some stuff that shoulda been an alarm going off about heading in the wrong direction. I once said to me-self, “Shiny cars […]

I Don’t Know How I Got Here

Posted on August 9, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Lost in the cave… I don’t know how I got here. Life was good… I had a good position, and people loved me; my marriage seemed to be okay, and everything was going along smoothly. Then the betrayal and my employment, money, family, mentor, and best friend were all gone. I don’t know why God […]

Lowliness of Mind

Posted on August 9, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” Philippians 2:3 Boy, this is a tough one isn’t it?
