Watch this fascinating interview of Christina Becker. about dreams.
Had some challenges lately? Disappointments?
One of the things I have discovered over the years is — there is rarely a straight line to success.
No matter what, there’s always bumps in the road or
obstacles to overcome! Often it is tempting to just
throw in the towel, give up, and consider yourself a *failure.*
But with a certain “special” attitude, everything changes.
The man below held onto a winning attitude in spite
of the appearances of failure.
As a child he had to work to support the family.
The family lost their home and he had to provide one.
His first business was a total and expensive failure.
He was forced to declare bankruptcy.
He was defeated when he ran for local elected office.
He took a job and lost it.
No formal education resulted in university rejection.
He borrowed from friends to start a new business.
He was again defeated in his bid for elected office.
His fiance died and he suffered a nervous breakdown.
He spent 6 months in bed.
He was defeated in a bid for US Congress.
He could not find a job after his new business failed.
He was defeated in a bid for the US Senate.
He was defeated in a nomination for US Vice-Pres.
He was again defeated in a bid for US Senate.
He was later elected President of the United States.
Were you able to guess the identity of this person?
What you just read is a brief recap of the life of Abraham Lincoln — the 16th President of the United States.
That “special” attitude says:
“I won’t give up no matter what, the next person I talk to will say YES, everything is going to be OK regardless of how it looks, If God be for me, WHO can be against me?”
You’ve tried it your way, now try adopting that “special” attitude and try again.

A spirit of revolution and renewal is awakening people
across America. That’s why The Freedom Federation is
holding a powerful gathering called “The Awakening 2010″
at Liberty University on April 15-16. Patriotic Americans
like you will greatly profit from joining us…please read

Christians in our nation today face unprecedented threats to the
free practice of our faith. As never before in the history
of our Republic, federal and state governments are “putting
the squeeze” on the consciences of believers and overtly
infringing upon our God-given liberties.
Ultraliberal legislation, oppressive regulatory policies,
and adverse court rulings are all creating pressure on
the practice of our faith. And that doesn’t even begin
to address the rise of radical Islam, the increasing
hedonism, and the loss of civility that plague our
No doubt, these are intensely challenging times. But it is
in times like these that God raises His Standard!
One of the exciting things the Lord is doing right now is
calling forth The Freedom Federation, a collaboration of
many of the nation’s largest multiracial, multiethnic and
multigenerational faith-based and policy organizations.
The Federation already represents over 30 million Americans
united by core values and the desire to bring REAL change!
++A silver lining in America’s cloud of moral decay.
The truth is, our nation’s Christians have no choice but
to stand together in this way. The kinds of pressure we
are experiencing from radical homosexual activists,
socialist political demagogues, anti-Christian bigots,
and those who simply want to cast away all bonds of
morality and decency COMPEL us to join together!
As Benjamin Franklin said when facing a different kind of
tyranny, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall
all hang separately.” In many ways, pressure against the
free expression of our faith is even greater today
than it was at the time of our founding.

learn all about “The Awakening 2010″:
++Real Hope. Real Change. Real Freedom.
At “The Awakening 2010,” we are going to celebrate a new
movement composed of many voices honoring Him across racial,
ethnic, and generational lines. Over 10,000 attendees will
hear motivational and informative messages by many of the
nation’s best known and most esteemed Christian leaders.
The Awakening begins on Thursday night at 5:00 pm and
concludes on Friday night with a powerful Liberty & Justice
Rally. Confirmed speakers include Rick Joyner, Ken Blackwell,
Tony Perkins, Richard Land, Cindy Jacobs, Ergun Caner, Wendy
Wright, Lou Engle, Samuel Rodriguez, and many more Christian
And on Friday morning, attendees will hear from Israeli Vice
Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Deputy Minister of Foreign
Affairs Daniel Ayallon addressing the new realities of
official relations between Israel and the United States.

for adults! But everyone must register.

++Something NEW is happening in America!
A spirit of revolution is awakening people and uniting
communities across racial, ethnic, and generational lines.
People are rallying around shared values because of the
increasing attacks against our faith and freedom.
The movement we are witnessing today is broader and deeper
than anything we have seen in our lifetime. It is NOT built
around a personality or a charismatic leader. Rather, it
is a Movement built upon MANY voices and MANY leaders!
“The Awakening 2010″ is sponsored by the numerous
organizations and leaders who have come together to
form The Freedom Federation. It will be a time to
unite around our shared values and faith, and a time
to find our strength in that unity.
Although it is going to be a massive gathering, “The
Awakening 2010″ won’t be the same without YOU! Please
ask the Lord if He would have you join us on April 15
and 16, 2010. Again, you can go here to learn more:
Looking forward to seeing you there,
Mathew D. Staver, Founder and Chairman
P.S. This event really is going to be a huge celebration!

Awakening 2010″ needs YOU to help bring renewed hope and
REAL change to America! And please consider sending this
message to several of your friends and fellow Christians.

God bless you!
God loves you. You are so dear…
When trouble assaults, remember this:
Jesus spoke to the wind and the waves and said “PEACE, BE STILL.” And, they obeyed Him…
You don’t always have to understand what’s going on… just speak to your present situation and say, “By the authority given to me as a daughter (or son) of God, I speak now to my present circumstances and say “Peace… Peace, be still.” Now… allow yourself to feel the power. Be quiet for a moment and feel the power of those words going out.. to be obeyed.
To all that’s been disturbing you say “Peace, Be Still and come into God Harmony, now. I Trust You, Father God, that Your Divine Right Activity, is taking place in my life, my home, my finances and my work, NOW.”
“I thank You. Let it be, just as I have spoken it.”
Continue speaking over (commanding) the situations and people involved… to come into Divine Harmony now. Then Trust that the Father is orchestrating everything and bringing everything that disturbs into silence and peace once again.
Think of the JESUS IN YOU as you speak and speak knowing that HIS AUTHORITY is in you, with you, and upon you.
God be praised.
All day long… say to yourself “All is well because Divine Harmony is manifesting now in my life, my work and my home. All is well, thank you, Father.”
I love you. And so does the Father.
On Easter Sunday my chest and abdomen started to get really tight, like I had eaten something that made me sick. Eight weeks later I went to the Dr.’s office because I was having trouble breathing. Several of the Cardiologists who looked at me said it was an absolute miracle that I was still alive. The left side of my heart was nearly useless because of a blood clot. My lungs were full of water inside and in the pleural space because of reduced blood circulation. Ten days went by in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Water pills removed the water in my lungs. IT sure felt good to have air inside my lungs again. Medicine has it under control. My orders are to take it really easy for 2 months and let the heart heal as much as it will. ENTER THE DREAM; While waking up at home several days later I felt a peculiar feeling inside my chest. At first there was no understanding at all what was happening. Into my mind came the word “COMPLETE” and then I knew the sensation in my chest was four heavenly fingers stroking the left side of my heart. This dream was telling me that God wants to get my attention. God wants me to know that He is still in the healing business. God wants me to know that He really loves me. Following this dream and for hours afterward I just felt so full of joy until tears came readily to my eyes. Have you ever had a similar experience?
Dr. Rima Laibow is warning people all over the world to avoid flu vaccines, especially Flumist currently sold in Walmarts. “It is dangerous to your health and the health of others,” she warns. “Once taken, you actually carry the virus for 3 weeks exposing everyone you come in contact with.”
|From a Chaplain in Iraq: For those who are unaware, the National Anthem is played before every movie in military theaters in the U.S. and abroad. I recently attended a showing of ‘Superman 3,’ here at LSA Anaconda. We have a large auditorium we use for movies, as well as memorial services and other large gatherings. As is the custom back in the States, we stood and snapped to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature. All was going as planned until about three-quarters of the way through the music stopped. Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back in the States?
I imagine there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few rude comments; and everyone would sit down and call for a movie. Of course, that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.
Here, the 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed forward.
The music began again. The Soldiers continued to quietly stand at attention. An again, at the same point, the music stopped.
But here, you could have heard a pin drop. Every Soldier continued to stand at attention. Suddenly there was alone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers, finishing where the recording left off………..
It was the most inspiring moment I have had here in Iraq. I wanted you to know what kind of soldiers are serving you here.
Remember them as they fight for you!
Pass this along as a reminder to others to be ever in prayer for all our soldiers serving us here at home and abroad. For many have already paid the ultimate price….

Yes, remember this as you celebrate your freedom this 4th of July. Love, Ruthanna
Dance like nobody’s watching! Live your dream! Matt Harding, our hero in this video, proves again the importance of acting on your dreams. Apparently, he took the first step and the rest is history! For a fun and inspirational “tour of the world” click below and enjoy! Hats off to Matt for the inspiration and also to his sponsor, Stridegum.com for making his dream a reality. Personally, I find this immensely inspiring. I hope you do too. What dream lies dormant within you now? Think about that as you watch the video… I know, I am. Love, Ruthanna
“What does this mean?” someone asked. “I would like to know if you can help me interpret this dream I had. I can only remember one symbol. In the dream the symbol was a burning cross. I don’t know what that is telling me and I am wondering if it means anything bad. I don’t know how or why I dreamed about that. But I just want to know what it could mean. Thanks.”
I could hear the urgency in her question, so I answered:
My dear friend, it is my purpose to help people understand that you can interpret your own dreams. Granted, it is not always easy! It takes thought and prayerful consideration. But, you can. If this dream concerns you, and obviously it does, ask God to help you understand it. Then, be patient, but expect the revelation to come. If there is a message for you, it will come. Be open and willing to hear, is my best advice. God bless, Ruthanna.
But wait! Very unexpectedly, God moved on my heart and I found myself writing to her again:
Dear Friend… this morning as I awoke, I saw “your burning cross” and this is what was revealed to me:
God wants His love to burn in your heart. Whether you have already received Him , or not, He is revealing His love for you by initiating this dream. I was reminded that God came to Moses in the desert and spoke to Him through a burning bush! It was a way for God to get his attention. Moses noticed that the bush itself was not consumed by the fire. Fire, in the natural, is destructive, but God’s fire is not! It is pure and does not consume or destroy. It energizes and illuminates! I was also reminded that God led His people through a wilderness with fire by night. Fire also guides and provides Light.
The interpretation: Perhaps God is revealing Himself and His love to you personally, in a sense inviting you to embrace and trust Him and let Him guide you at this time. He may also be letting you know that He will energize you for the task at hand; and that if you’ll take His Hand, now, He will help you. He is there with you now but wants you to let Him fully into your heart and life so He can do more. Again, He’s wanting you to let His love burn in your heart. If you’re having trouble loving someone, you can exchange your love for His and His love will be easier to give than your own.
I was amazed that this interpretation came to me this morning. I don’t usually get interpretations for other people, but I hope this blesses you. And, I hope you will receive it, as the gift that it is. Sincerely, Ruthanna
Her reply back to me after receiving this: “Dear Ruthanna, thank you for interpreting my dream. That is amazing! I think I am getting closer to God. Thank you so much!”
How do you understand your dream? What is it saying? Is it important? All very good questions to ask. It is my sincere desire to help you understand your dreams… at least some of them! That’s why I wrote “Your Dreams…Is God Trying To Tell You Something?” You can buy it here right on the website for just $9.95 It’s a great value and I really believe it will give you valuable insight into understanding your dreams.
The first and most important thing to remember is that it’s your dream and you are equipped to interpret the dream yourself. Therefore, as you search to understand a dream, I urge you to make it your priority to learn how to interpret your own dreams. Don’t go searching to find someone else to interpret it for you. You are capable of figuring it out yourself. Then, start listening. Open your heart and mind to hear what the dream is trying to tell you. I believe a prayer would help… something like this “Father, God, help me understand this dream… especially if you are trying to tell me something important. Open my heart and mind to hear what you’re saying. I pray this in Jesus Name, amen.”
Then, it will come. That still small voice in your head and you will know it’s true. There’s so much I’d like to share with you about hearing, so I hope you’ll go ahead and get my book. As soon as you complete the transaction, you will be able to download it and start reading it right away on your computer. God bless you. And, sweet dreams. Love, Ruthanna
