A Word from the Lord.....Featuring Tracy Teppler

I love how God uses people and I love it and am humbled by when the Lord sometimes uses me in some small way.  I love when someone is desperate for a touch, a word, from God and... they get it.  I love when one is in church and you see how people have been touched by God.

I WANT THAT TOO..

I WANT THAT... for me too.  My husband and I have been going through a very hard thing and its culminating in a court case on the 7th of February, but I have been fearful and alternating between begging the Lord to intervene before then, or begging Him to make it go away!  We have been trying to do all the right things, like reading God's word, trusting Him, speaking His word over the situation... But it is TOUGH to have faith in the face of the enemy's attempts at destruction when you have been standing for so long.

And then.... WOW!

The morning after a 5 1/2 hour meeting with our lawyers to prepare for the court case, the morning after being emotionally drained and emptied, I go on facebook.  You know, check out what everyone is saying, looking for positive thoughts, great scriptures and someone else on facebook, a continent away starts chatting with me and 5 minutes in she says the following:

What I hear is God saying, "Pray for her to have bubbling laughter at the very mention of this situation, that the joy would pour from her." And what I see is it is like a weapon, and every time Satan tries to goad you with this, you bubble with joy and laughter, and he is so enraged by your reaction, he leaves. And I feel like the Lord says this is YOUR personal weapon that He has fashioned just for you. Have you asked for joy in the presence of your enemies or something?
and then...
 I keep seeing you in a room sitting at a wooden table. It looks like what i think a courtroom would look like. Big ceiling fans hanging down.  And instead of being anxious, you almost cannot contain yourself. You are filled to overflowing with joy and laughter.
WOW, goose bumps, chills, tears!  This is a woman I have never met, this is a woman who knows nothing about this other than the previous day was tough for me in this meeting.

LAUGHTER, JOY, OVERFLOWING...

I can never again say, "I want a word from the Lord"  because I have now had an awesome word from the Lord.  I can hang on to it for dear life with much laughter, and much joy bubbling forth from the Lord, from inside my heart.

Don't give up waiting and longing and desiring a word from the Lord.  Seek Him and He will be found.
Jer 29 v 13:  And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart.  

 Enjoy God bless
Tracy

  3. Oh, Tracey, that is such a goose bumps story! Can't wait to here more on the story. But God is always the biggest BUT of all...and also the best intervention comes from the most unexpected places. So glad that this sweet friend reminded you just so with the But God just right for you...

    But God has revealed those things to us by his Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:10 For the Spirit searches everything, even the deep things of God.Oh I am inspired to write about that now!

  5. Tracey, from what I've read so far, you DO have a word from the Lord--His Word.........as He's been speaking to you about not caring at all WHEN we read it, but THAT we read it.

    And, He's given you the blessing of speaking through someone half way around the world just to let you know He sees you.
    Oh, He's a great big God.

    Thanks for sharing this story.

  6. Saw you were guest posting over here and had to come read it! I'm glad I did. You know, I really think that prayer online is not really taken seriously a lot of the time. But, just as this situation, God can move through the internet to place a sentence or two at just the right time for just the right person. Praise God for His no boundaries pursuit. :)

  7. I have found more support through my challenges in this beautiful community than I have on this side of the computer - the prayers have sustained me, encouraged me - and understood, teaching me more how to live grace and hope - and unconditional love. Beautiful testimony of how He reaches us:)

    (so excited about the results, too :)

  8. Hi Tracy, I so desire to hear Him speak. He has been so good to me. He does speak and we must encourage others to know He has given us spiritual ears to hear. But also are natural ones. May everything work out quickly!
    Blessings, Roxy

When Goliath Refuses To Fall

Goliath....  A Philistine giant who stood over nine feet tall, wearing full armor and came every day for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelite's to fight. 


His stature was massive with a physical strength no man could match. He put such a vast fear into the army of Israel and King Saul no one was willing to confront him, until David, a boy after God's own heart, stood to face this giant with the colossal power of God standing with him.

Some may ask how does a sling and a stone become such a victorious weapon of war?
My answer...... It was the trust and faith in God alone that gave David and his sling and stone such a victory. All though I may not actually face a nine foot giant in life, I do however have had my own Goliath's to encounter. And the one over the last few years has refused to fall...........

Just when I think peace has finally found it's place in my life, this giant surfaces with its mocking and taunting war cry, challenging me to battle. I ha…

He Did Not Just Wear His Badge.....He Gave His Life.

I don't recall a time in my life where my faith has ever wavered, I trust God. I believe in Him and His promises.   However in the recent events I am finding it's not my lack of  trust that has me on my knees, it's my lack of understanding . The grief that has consumed my community and our nation is smothering the very essence of my heart.
So much death.....
So much violence.....
So much brokenness.....
Division at it's worse.

As a nation we grieved for Dallas and the loss of the fallen officers. Today as a community we grieve for our own. The three hero's, Montrell Jackson, Matthew Gerald and Brad Garafola, who lost their lives in a purposely orchestrated attack. A senseless act which has now placed Baton Rouge on the map of sorrow with others across the US. And one question that screams at us all............
WHY?

I do not have the answer nor will I pretend to.  I wish I did. I pray my words of comfort do not sound  cliche' or hollow. I pray the words from …

Digging Up A Bitter Root

Ephesians 4:26 "In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry."  (NIV)
" Many times bitterness is the result of unresolved anger; anger with ourselves or with others. . Anger that is not dealt with can easily become a dangerous bitter root in our hearts......"
(Click here for more on overcoming bitterness)  My mom has told me time and time again, " Stacey you forgive so easily, that's just who you are." Truth be told, I do forgive fairly easy; I have my moment , express my emotions, shed any needed tears, and move on. Am I perfect? Not hardly. Some situations and circumstances in my life have had me not wanting to forgive, and secretly hoping for God to smite them. Harsh? Yes I know." Lord forgive me."  However over the years I have purposed to do my best to see others with the eyes of my daddy God in spite of my hurting heart. And  there are times, regardless of my hearts desire to forgive, my best will have…
