We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.


Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.


  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

The possessed man never intended to be a spectacle, an embarrassment to his family. He was captivated by pleasure and thought he would make life delightful. He had been attracted into enemy territory and now they have complete control.

When he would sacrifice everything to regain personal power, he is helpless. Satan has nearly taken over his power to think and decide. He can’t even speak his own words to ask for help! Israel is ignorant of their worst enemies. They want a Messiah to conquer their Roman oppressors; but the only army Jesus takes on is Satan’s, whose success with Eve, empowered evil angels to try and take over the minds and bodies of humans, blaming their resulting misery on God.*

Jesus hears what the man can't say. His words break Satan’s power, who summons all of his forces to oppose Jesus at every step.

Jesus is revealing God’s character, bringing freedom and new life, but causing feverish intensity in the dark side.

No cry to God, no attempt to reconnect with Him, goes unnoticed, even it if doesn’t have words. No matter how broken or weak we are, as long as we want a relationship with God we are not left to Satan’s power or our own helplessness.**

This is a universal conflict that climaxed with Jesus, but is building into one final confrontation to come. Now Satan’s side works most effectively disguised as angels of light, and people listen. The only means for recognizing deception and defeating evil spirits is knowing God personally.***
