Have you ever been to a church service and felt the Holy Spirit prompting you to stand; either for the scripture reading or a song?


I have, especially with music.  It’s my worship!  Some songs you just can’t sing sitting down!!

It was the same way for the people in the book of Ezra.  They were honoring the word because they knew the Word had power to change peoples lives!!

I enjoy teaching God’s word, but I also take it very seriously.  It’s not something to be taken lightly.  I stive to show tremendous respect, joy and love for the word of God.  I’ve seen the power behind it.  I’ve experienced the valley’s and mountaintops, but through it all God’s word has been my guide.  image

If you have never experienced the tranforming power of God’s Holy Word, I encourage you to give it a try.  You’ll see why it deserves our honor and respect! ~Debra
