Just a few years ago, I started a secretarial position. This was a blessing for me, as so many people are struggling in getting a steady income these days.  After a full year of working as a substitute I finally was offered a permanent position with a 5 dollar hourly raise, which is something I could really be thankful for, despite it only being a part time job.

I was told that as soon as I had accepted the job, I would be able to actually start applying for full time positions.  And, that is exactly what I did!  I probably applied for about 7 or 8 different openings beginning at the end of that August.  Without discouragement, I prayed about what I wanted, and thought positive about the situation every day.  I claimed to anyone who asked, “I WILL BE in a full time position BEFORE Christmas.” And,  on October 13th – a little less than 2 months from first starting my permanent position, I finally got the news that I was highest bidder on one of those jobs.

Which leads me to my question: Can man speak things into existence supernaturally?

If you were to listen to popular Word of Faith & prosperity Preachers like Joel Olsteen, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and the like, they would probably say of course.  If you read books like “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy, it would say that you definitely speak whatever your heart desires into existence, and you can learn how, starting today.  Let me be clear, I am not referring to people speaking of the power of prayer or even questioning the Power of the Word of God.  I am asking about the idea of men and women being able to literally talk about something that they desire to happen – in this case, wealth and health,  and have it actually come into fruition by speaking a mere number of words.

Of course, the answer to this lies in what you choose to believe. View Post

A little over three years ago I was suddenly approached with some frightening news about someone who had at one time been a part of my life.  And by frightening, I mean down right SCARY.  This revelation embedded a whirlwind of shock, fear, paranoia and uncertainty in me for many months ahead.  At the same time, I was really struggling internally with an relationship that I was in. Then on top of that, I was pregnant with a child who was to be born with a major heart defect and need surgery soon after birth. With this mountain of stress around me, it was often hard for me to function as a normal person, but that at the same time these troubles would eventually bring out a persistent sense of faith, patience, and gratefulness that all truth would come out and work out for my greater good, and it did.  If you had bumped into me around this time, it would have been easy to sense a confused, and very emotionally vulnerable young woman.  Too often naive, I realized at that time that putting my trust in anyone but God was the wrong thing to do.

I remember clearly when I felt the most lost and depressed.  I was understandably shaken, scared and my faith was wavering.  I kept questioning God on why he wasn’t answering my prayers, how come I always felt so alone, and what could I have ever done to anyone for everything wrong that was happening in my life at that time.  I continually cried my heart out in despair, pitying my self every single night not even realizing that God knows me inside and out, had never stopped loving me or working to protect me.
