Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58 I love this verse. It is such an encouraging word. I have heard it many times and have used it in the counseling office often. I fear, however, […]


Being in the Way

Posted on August 3, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Being in the way generally brings negative thoughts.  As children, we’re frequently told to go play somewhere else because we’re “in the way” of what our parents might be trying to  get done. But being in the way is often exactly where we are supposed to be. We just started a new DVD study in […]


Doing Gospel-life together

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

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 How much or how often does the Gospel impact daily life?  Is it a tool God uses […]


Wanna Give Up?

Posted on July 30, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 Wanna give up?  That was the question posed by Pastor one Sunday during his sermon.  As I contemplated the question, I wondered what that would actually look like. There are times in all […]


A Step is Not a Walk

Posted on July 28, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God,  to walk in His ways and to fear Him. (Deuteronomy 8:6) This simple statement was made by Pastor Bill Raws one Sunday morning at chapel service: A step is not a walk.  Sometimes the simplest statements can have such profound meaning.  A step is not […]


Snakes and Sin

Posted on July 27, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? (Romans 6:2) It would not be much of a stretch to say I hate snakes.  Something inside me recoils in the presence of a snake, even if it is neatly tucked inside a tank at the zoo. One morning I was out walking […]


God is Bigger Than You Think

Posted on July 26, 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 […]


Fully God and Fully Man

Posted on July 23, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.[i]… But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman… [ii]…And the angel said to her, […]


Grumble, Grumble

Posted on July 22, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Our God is a generous God, why do we grumble when He is generous to others?  We are prone to expect His generosity with us, but look less kindly on His generosity to others.  Let’s consider some Biblical examples: Jonah – God called him to go to Nineveh to call the people to repent, Jonah […]


It’s a Lie

Posted on July 21, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44 In 2001, Nancy Leigh DeMoss wrote a book titled, “The Lies Women Believe.”  She […]


By Faith

Posted on July 20, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

It was like a V-8 moment.  Something I have known for most of my life as a believer (35 years) but it shot off the page and hit me square between the eyes. I was reading a book for my Recovery Coaching certification when I read this statement: “It is most difficult to let go […]


What would happen if?

Posted on July 19, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

What would happen if we said yes to Jesus every time? What would happen if we followed Jesus closely? What would happen if we repented quickly when we sinned? What would happen if we took God at His Word? What would happen if we trusted God with every aspect of our lives? What would happen […]


Process vs. Goal

Posted on July 16, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I recently heard a radio message about the importance of the process on the way to the end goal. It reminded me of a time I was the captain of a volleyball team in the company league and one of the players came to me after 4 or 5 games and told me she was […]


The Business-At-Hand

Posted on July 15, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I was recently at a Women’s Retreat planning meeting.  It was my hope that it would be brief and I’d be home fairly early. It was not to be so. As the meeting began, the woman leading shared her growing desire to pray fervently for the women of our church and for our women’s events, […]
