Real Rest

Posted on May 18, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Recently, I was doing some reading about “Finding Peace in Life’s Busy Seasons” by Jackie M. Johnson. I am in the midst of a very high-pressure time with more to do than I can humanly do and my to-do list seems to get longer and longer. We have all been there. I am not unique […]

His Word

Posted on May 17, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I am watching over my word to perform it… Jeremiah 1:11 Unlike us, God means every word that He speaks. Not only does He mean it but He, and He alone has the power to make it so. “…not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. […]

My Flesh Wants…

Posted on May 13, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. Galatians 5:16-17 Every one of us […]

For His Pleasure

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

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,  for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12-13 I have read this verse many, many times.  But […]

The Problem with Logic

Posted on May 11, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

How many times I have heard, “But God gave us a brain.”  Which, of course is true but underlying that statement, I believe is the problem of logic.  How often when we choose to do the logical thing do we forgo doing the faith thing? I can think of many, many Biblical examples of this […]

You’re Right

Posted on May 10, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance… (Proverbs 1:5)   You’re right! Two words that stick in our throats.   Why do we find it so difficult to admit when someone else has a better idea or accept when someone else has a word of insight or correction […]

Wanna give up?

Posted on May 5, 2022 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 […]

Self-Deception

Posted on May 3, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“Deception has been the primary strategy of Satan from the beginning.”[i]This is a quote from a book I am reading for the Recovery Coach Certification I am pursuing. The author, Dr. Anderson, describes eight ways that we deceive ourselves and some of them hit too close to home. We deceive ourselves when we hear the […]

A Little Change

Posted on May 2, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Paul Tripp (one of my favorite authors) says:  “It’s not that we want too much from God. No, the reality is that often we are willing to settle for too little. We are content with a little bit of change, a little bit or growth, or a little bit of maturity.”[i] We tend to climb […]

Letting Go of a Dream

Posted on April 29, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Have you ever had a dream that you longed to see come true?  A plan. A desire. A direction you thought you were going? I think we all have. Sometimes that dream comes to fruition. That is how I feel about my job at America’s Keswick.  I clearly remember attending a conference one summer about […]

Too Weak to Fight

Posted on April 28, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Ephesians 6:10-12 says: “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers […]

Forgiveness Costs Somebody

Posted on April 27, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

…forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. Luke 11:4 Unforgiveness is bondage.  It is a prison of bitterness and unpaid debt. However, the offended one is the one trapped.  Unforgiveness and bitterness are common themes in the counseling office.  How often have I heard and said myself, “Forgiveness […]

Good Shepherd, Bad Shepherd

Posted on April 26, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

For some people just the mention or anticipation of a job/performance review brings angst.  Usually it is the people that believe (correctly or incorrectly) that they have fallen short of the job expectations that get a knot in their stomach. The shepherds of Israel SHOULD have had a knot in their stomach. This particular year […]

It’s a Lie

Posted on April 25, 2022 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 […]
