Complain or Gratitude

Posted on July 25, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

I am at that stage in life where I am finding it much more difficult to tolerate certain things. I find myself getting more and more vocal about things that disturb me. My constant prayer is that I would guard my words and remember that there is a time to speak and a time to […]

Sorrowful and Troubled

Posted on July 25, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Matthew recorded the scene at a place called Gethsemane. Jesus, approaching the time of his death, took his disciples to this garden to pray. He said to them, “Sit here, while I go other there and pray.” (Mt. 26:36). Jesus left the majority of his disciples there and took Peter, James, and John and moved […]

I Do Not Know the Man

Posted on July 22, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Let me set the scene for us today. Jesus has been arrested – betrayed by Judas, his disciple (Mt. 26:47, 57). His disciples all left him and fled (Mt. 26:56). Peter, one of Christ’s closest circle, followed at a distance (Mt. 26:58). Christ had warned Peter earlier that he would deny him three times before […]

Made to Burn with the Light of the Son

Posted on July 22, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

The atoms like each other to different degrees. Oxygen, for instance in the air, would like to be next to carbon, and if they get near to each other, they snap together. If they’re not too close though, they repel and they go apart, so they don’t know that they could snap together. It’s just […]

Philippians 4…For the Win!

Posted on July 21, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Let me just get it right out there. I worry. I am a consistent worrier. I can say with nearly full confidence that on any given day I will worry, I will have doubts, and fear will come creeping into my mind. The area of my life that I find myself worrying about the most […]

Better Than I Deserve

Posted on July 21, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

How many times have we asked someone how they are and heard the response, “Better than I deserve.” One of these times I may just respond, “You’re not kidding there” with an impish grin, of course. In truth, we are all better that we deserve from the person in the worst situation to the best, […]

Look at Me, Mom, Look at Me!

Posted on July 20, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Remember as a child desperately wanting Mom and Dad to see you and your antics? (What do you mean, “what antics?”) Swinging high on the playground – wind blowing through your hair – “Look at me, Mom, look at me!” Riding a two-wheeler for the first time without training wheels – “Look at me, Dad, […]

The 51st Degree PART TWO

Posted on July 20, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Thy presence, And do not take Thy Holy Spirit from me.”- Psalm 51: 10-11 (NASB) There’s a segment in Paul David Tripp’s book “Do You Believe” where he says this, “One of the sad […]

Who’s Holding Who

Posted on July 19, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.” Psalm 63:8 I recall my response to the question, “How are you?” with, “Trying to hold things together”, as one of my answers. The idea that I have anything to do with holding anything together is delusional. I can try to manage my life, […]

I’m an Old Lady…

Posted on July 19, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I had the opportunity to participate in the Spring Ladies Day at America’s Keswick with Liz Curtis Higgs years ago. As Liz gave an invitation at the end, I was one of several women available to pray with the women that came forward. As I stood there, I noticed an older woman (probably in her […]

Two Observations about Obedience

Posted on July 18, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“And Moses inspected all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the Lord commanded, so they had done it. And Moses blessed them.” (Exodus 39: 43 Amplified Bible) Something jumped off the page this morning when I was reading the final chapters of Exodus (38-40). Last week I talked about Bezalel and Aholiab […]

Drastic Measures…

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

Jesus, addressing the disciples, challenged them to think boldly and drastically about temptation and sin. He said, “…if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it way. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown […]

Read Wisely

Posted on July 15, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.” (Psalms 37:23-24) When you ‘delight’ yourself in the Lord and love the One who has sent you His Words of hope, assurance, forgiveness, and […]

From a Whisper to a Shout

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

“What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.” Matthew 10:27 If you have been a believer for any length of time you know that some of our most fruitful times of growth are in the midst of trial and suffering. It is often […]
