ABOUT MIDNIGHT

Witnessing the Power of Prayer & Praise

Living Beyond Pain FEBRUARY 2020
A Journey to Wholeness

BY JUANITA WILLIAMS

ISSUE NO. 2


"About Midnight

Paul and Silas
were praying and
singing hymns to

God, and the
other prisoners
were listening to
them. Suddenly
there was such a
violent earthquake

that the
foundations of
the prison were
shaken. At once all
the prison doors
flew open, and
everyone’s chains

came loose."

Acts 16:25-26

"Mercy" By Mia Koehne

This month brings us more stories of hope, inspiration and time in
God's word! Speaking of Words, I picked one for 2020. My One Word
this year is Vision. I desire to see situations and people the way the
Lord does so that I can love more deeply and trust more quickly.

When I first started sharing songs (and still to this day) it was focused
around Acts 16:25-26 and the belief that praying and singing hymns,
just as Paul and Silas did in prison, still has the same power to loose
the chains of bondage and sin because of the power of Jesus Christ.

May you be reminded that God never leaves, He always loves and He
delights in redeeming the lost. Thanks for reading along.

BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR!

SHERRI
GROTELUESCHEN


Lessons I've learned
from being BALD!

Losing my hair due to breast cancer treatment was
one of the most traumatic events of my life! I cried

when I "washed my hair off." But..

*You save money.
*You save time.
*Since God knows the numbers of hairs on your head, He
saves time too because He has less to count. :)
*If your open, it's a great icebreaker.
*It's a great excuse to rock cool scarves and hats.
*So much of a women's identity and self worth is wrapped
up in her hair. THE REALITY IS...it's not about our hair, it's
about our hearts.
A heart washed by the blood of Jesus is forever clean.
A heart conditioned by trust in Jesus produces love, faith
and hope.
A heart brushed with the presence of God will be more
amazing each day.
A heart styled with His radiance creates a glow and shine
that NO ONE and NO THING can ever take away!

Adoring From the Pew

In the pew we pause, a time of worship, a time of prayer.
Forgiveness and blessings offered, to nothing in this world it compares. 

Fills our cup with holy water of unending amazing grace.
Encouraged to take deep breaths and continue running our anchor of the race. 

A community of believers, surround us with their storms and pain.
To sisters and brothers we greet with a hand, gifts of smiles we gain. 

Our words confess the belief in our heart, of the Father, Spirit and Son.
We stand as a church, a body, claiming Three in One. 

We sing out every hurt, every joy, from the depth of our soul.
Without hesitation we clap, multiple hands made into a whole. 

Old Testament verses remind us He keeps promises from history.
New Testament gospels strengthen us to stay within our boundaries. 

A sermon from the Word comes to life and gently cleanses.
The chisel digs out buried sin and new becomes our looking lenses. 

A portion we give back from what He has joyfully and abundantly given.
Oh if we could ever be so grateful for this indescribable living!

 One by one we get fortitude from His bread, from His wine, from His provision.
Reminded of His power, moving inside us, guiding each and every decision. 

We look around, faces changed, hearts turned in the waltz of another Sunday morn.
One day our joy will be fully complete, for now from the pew, Jesus we adore!
