We’ve Been Threshed – Photos from Minnesota

27 Oct

A picture is worth a thousand words!

The threshing floor shall be full of wheat and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. (Joel 2:24)

What does it mean that Minnesota is God’s threshing floor for the nation?

As yesterday’s devotional discussed, one way to serve like Jesus is to be grateful. Sharing photos with you is one way for me to show gratitude to God for special people and special places he has allowed me to encounter.

By far, my most popular devotionals are ones with photos. Even people who have never met me, love looking at the photos. A single photo can easily stir up lots of memories and ideas, even for those who don’t know anyone in the photo and have never been to that place.

The most popular things on websites are typically photos, videos, and stories of changed lives. Why? God designed us to be relational.

As each year winds down, I like to think about the #1 contact (mentor) that God connected me with. In 2005, it was Rick Heeren. Over the past two years, Rick and Rachel and their two children, Derek and Arleigh, have become dear friends.

Consequently, it was a tremendous privilege for me to be able to go with my wife and daughter to Minneapolis October 19-21 for Arleigh’s wedding. I had the privilege to meet numerous extraordinary people. I observed several neat things that will be beneficial when my children get married. I was particularly impressed by the favorable spiritual climate in Minnesota.

During their 50 state tour in 2003-2004, Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce prophesied that Minnesota is “God’s threshing floor” for the nation.” Rick addresses this prophecy in his book “The Threshing Floor.” This trip to Minnesota was my second and my wife and daughter’s first. Our family has now been officially threshed.

Prayer Power
Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege to go to Minneapolis for Arleigh’s wedding. Bless Arleigh and Jeff Hagberg’s new life together. Thank You for each person my family met. Thank You for what You are doing in Minnesota. May You water the good seeds that were sown last weekend with Your miracle grow. Thank You Jesus. Amen.

It is easy, fun, and will inspire others.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
