Marriage Seminar Testimonial 2019

 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” —Hebrews4:16

Our Marriage Seminars continue to make a difference in so many lives of the couples who are in the Texas prison system.  Here is just an example of the results we are seeing.

Hi Betty,

It's been 3 years since my husband and I last saw you and your husband at the Wynne Unit in Huntsville! Just wanted to share that my husband and I are legally married, we are stronger than ever in our commitment and vows. God has blessed us tremendously. I am now the next leader for a KAIROS Outside for Woman in Central Texas.God has used my life in KAIROS Woman's Ministry and Immanuel Motorcycle Ministry. Immanuel MM goes the the Ney unit sharing the gospel. I go and share my testimony of how being a wife, mom and sister to the one's I love who are incarcerated. My husband and I still remember our first encounter as a couple and going through the Marriage seminar. I still remember the 3%,we are going strong as Jesus leads and we follow. My husband has become an amazing Man. In the last 3 years we have never encountered another ministry like WVIW. My husband is now at the Torres Unit and he has taken what he learned and imparts that to these men who's marriages are falling apart. God is good! You all are in our prayers...”

 

We are grateful for stories like these because they encourage us to keep going. We know God has placed families in our lives to be both a blessing to and to be blessed by. We hope you will pray with us for more opportunities in 2019 to encounter couples who need a testimony like the one above.

We have a big year ahead of us and we are counting on you to help us reach as many people as possible.  

 

God Bless You, 

— Johnny

It is time to Repent

Often on my many out-of- town trips, I would drive down the wrong road by mistake.  After a few miles I would realize the signposts no longer matched my directions.  Or the map clearly showed I was headed away from my destination, not toward it.

IMG_5780.JPG

I could keep driving the wrong way, stubbornly insisting I would get there somehow.  Or I could backtrack---whining the whole time---until I reached the spot where I made a wrong turn and make the right one.  At that point I would be so relieved, so happy to be going in the correct direction, the whining ended and rejoicing would begin.

When we come to our senses, when we see our mistakes---our failures, our sins, our spiritual bloopers---for what they are, it is time not only to confess but also turn around and go back to where we know in our hearts we need to be.

“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near.

Repent and believe the good news!”

Mark 1:15

We will not drive this road alone.  God (our heavenly GPS) will never turn His back on you.  Patiently, lovingly, the Lord waits for each one of us to stop and face Him once more.  He will not say, “I told you so,” but rather, “I love you so.”

“He is patient with you,

Not wanting any to perish,

But everyone to come to repentance.”

2 Peter 3:9

“Everyone.”  I guess that means, well, every one of us.  No matter what we have done.  No matter how deliberately.  All it takes: a change of heart.  And then a shift in direction.  If we are sorry yet keep on sinning, we are driving farther down the road that gets us no place we truly want to go.

To repent means to quit sinning, turn around, and walk back into God’s embrace…

realizing that God’s kindness

Leads you toward repentance.”

Romans 2:4

Here’s the thing: this is a well-traveled road.  You are, no doubt, going to stumble along this route again someday, repenting afresh.  Rest assured, God’s patience will outlast your obstinacy.  He will still be there for you.

Grace with Confidence

 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”Hebrews4:16

 

A person who embraces grace with both arms, who stops fretting over their sin and begins focusing on their savior, who dries their tears so they see others who are hurting--- this is some kind of person.

God can use us wherever we are.  Brand-new believer, teenage dynamo, thirty-something parent, recommitted midlifer, silver-haired saint.  Whoever, wherever, God has plans for us.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”  1 Peter 4:10

The only time a grace-filled person feels completely at peace is when they are being used by God for His glory.  When we keep pouring His Word into our hearts, reading it on our own, hearing it taught, studying it with friends, that truth will begin spilling out.  Thirsty people will be drawn to us, holding out their cups.

“The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.”  Revelation 22:17

This is what I have been teaching to my students at Christ for the Nations this year.  God wants to use us all, but for that to happen we must be certain we keep ourselves filled up and walking in grace, in order for people to be drawn to the life-giving grace that is in us.

The folks on the sidelines feel obligated to point out our lack of qualifications—we don’t know enough, aren’t perfect enough, or haven’t been believers long enough—we can gently remind them that God has His own agenda and His own timetable.

Whatever experiences reside in our past or present, God can use them to mold a brighter future for others.  You are more than enough.  You have more than enough grace. 

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Romans 8:37

 

Not less than but more than, because of God’s love.  Go and share His grace.

It’s 4:30am and we are up getting ready for our final day of our marriage seminar in prison. God has done some pretty amazing things in the lives of the couples attending.

Husbands Love Your Wives

Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting.

Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness.

And that is how husbands ought to love their wives.

Ephesians 5:25-28 MSG
