Weekend Food Needs for our school Children met through – Totes for Hope

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

For half a year, we have been having meetings to help develop a program and volunteer team and funding for weekend food needs for the students at Eiber Elementary that are food insecure. That is a fancy term for HUNGRY.  The public school system has a federal nutrition program and Title One schools who have a majority of students on free and reduced lunch meet part of the food security needs of these school children.

Children can have a school breakfast, a school lunch, an after school snack and summer food service, but weekends are not covered under any government program by the federal agencies.

Reaching children during out of school times in regards to nutrition needs do not fit into the on site model of being at school.

I like to keep a heart mind set of not blaming but hoping that together one by one we can as community members get to help one another.

Totes of Hope®

Totes of Hope® was created in 2006 to assist children with nutritious, kid-friendly food to sustain them over the weekend when school is not in session. Every Friday, children take home a tote filled with 8-9 pounds of nutritious food items to feed them and their families. For many of these children, the totes are their main source of food on Saturday and Sunday. There is no fee assessed to the member agency for participation in this program.

 

Here are some statistics:

When a child does not have access to regular meals and is uncertain of when they may eat again they are experiencing the epidemic known as “chronic childhood hunger.” Families that cannot afford food or do not have regular access to food are considered “food insecure.”

The number of children living in households that were food insecure at some point during the year has grown 61 percent in Colorado since 2001-2003, to approximately 234,000 children by 2006- 2008, or 20 percent of all Colorado kids. This percentage has recently surpassed the national rate of 19 percent.Kids experiencing chronic hunger may not only suffer from poor health, they can also be denied the opportunity to reach their academic, athletic and social potential. Chronically hungry students may have the following issues in the classroom:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Lethargy or general fatigue
  • Stomachaches
  • Headaches
  • Irritability or mood swings
  • Disciplinary problems
  • Increased aggression

Recent studies from the American Academy of Pediatrics have shown that the effects of chronic childhood hunger can last a lifetime. Not knowing when they may have another meal can cause both anxiety and depression.

Hunger and Poverty in our Community

Hunger and poverty go hand in hand, which is why it is useful to use poverty statistics as a base for hunger statistics.

Chronic childhood hunger exists both above and below the poverty line, as the Federal guidelines for poverty are considered out of date.

  • To be considered 100% of poverty, a family of four must earn less than $23,050 per year.
  • To be eligible for reduced lunch, a family must be at 130% of the federal poverty line or earn less than $40,793 per year.
  • To be eligible for free lunch, a family must earn less than 185% of the federal poverty line or $28,665 per year.

In Colorado, 17% of kids live in poverty

The number of children in poverty has more than doubled since 2000 and the number of children living in extreme poverty (approximately $11,000 for a family of four) has increased 150 percent.

While the childhood poverty rate in Colorado currently remains below the national average, between 2000 and 2009 the number of children living in poverty in Colorado more than doubled, rising faster than any other state in the nation.

School Meal Programs

In Colorado, there has been a steady increase in the number of children participating in the School Breakfast Program. The U.S. increased four percent in the number of children served by the free breakfast program since 2008, while the number of Colorado children increased more than twice as fast with a nine percent increase over the same period.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, more than 54,000 additional children participated in the National School Lunch Program in Colorado in 2009 than in 2005.

In Jefferson County, there are over 27,000 children who are eligible for free and or reduced lunch programs. Here in Golden, there are over 1,100 children eligible.

Approach God to Listen and not to speak in 2017 – 15 minute teaching -airs five times this week

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
Approaching God to listen and not speak as an act of obedience and a discipline will shift you more into the presence of God. Over the years, I have helped hundreds of people come closer with God to the greatest joy of their lives.

 

Approaching God to listen and not speak is what Jesus was telling those grumpy Pharisees when they said hey Jesus what is the greatest commandment.  Jesus said boldly…to be in love with me …

Approaching God to listen and not speak will help you along in consenting to receive the fullness of Gods love for you and your family.

Wilkins Radio

Like the dawn of a new morning we will begin to realize that God really does want to spend time with us. Time as his son or daughter or friend. Time to BE together not to talk about doing stuff.

Better than our best friend is the one who wants us to dwell with God, to abide with God to be still with God…to tarry with God… lets decide to obediently declare to God that with your grace I decide to lean in closer to you because I can. To go deeper in my relationship with you.  To learn to approach you not like an orphan but like royalty… after all God you did tell us we are a royal priesthood… priestly people love to dwell in the smoke of Gods glory…

Does this sound scary or impossible ?  Are you suffering from unbelief and hope deferred in the love relationship you have with God… take some baby steps or a few bold obedient steps this month.

Carve out in your calendar time for the one who deeply desires You.  Learn to approach God and say I no longer want to live ALONE… I am sick and tired of feeling alone…

I watched a show on the history channel with my daughter Kaitlin and her husband Jeff a few days ago and it is a survivor show called ALONE… they drop one person in one place and drop about 15 single people in a semi artic place in south America to survive…of course there is a  500 k prize…. The one guy we saw lasted two days…. He was going crazy being alone because his mind would not shut off from worrying about his wife and three children they were going to soon adopt…he was so ashamed he could not handle being alone…. Of course I thought right away…how sad he was not alone he just thought he was alone…he got air lifted or boat lifted from the aloneness…

We can approach God and learn while being silent and listening why we are not alone and who we get to spend time with who loves us much more than anyone knows…love just waiting for us…so how we approach God is :

  1. How do you see yourself ?  we will look at in the coming weeks the battlefield of our mind. The power of words we speak about ourselves…those hidden almost subconscious beliefs about ourselves that block out at this threshold or throne of grace what God is saying to us and to be able to see who we truly are. Silence before God to listen and not speak with unlock and unearth the truth of our very self our very identity that has often been stolen
  2. Practice and obedience must come into play to receive this new fresh relationship with God. Coming to God to listen will manifest Gods very presence…on you and to you and in you…yes you
  3. Gods presence manifests or arises in silence. You will become comfortable with hearing nothing because actually silence has sounds… the tangible presence of God has substance… God can speak to our spirit with His presence…  we all must must must learn this and live this to mature and flourish

 

 

Some books that can help you in this adventure or spiritual journey with God will be listed on our website… good counsel can be to find a friend to walk this out with or even a counselor…

 

When rebuilding the community and wall in time of Nehemiah they were busy building but they got restored big time in Nehemiah 8:5-6 when the very presence of God caused them all to fall at Gods feet on their face.  Face time with God still works and is highly transforming and healing.

 

In my book lean in closer with God I share about my journey to Hear God speak to me and my journey of being literally FAINT WITH LOVE with God.  Jesus and the Holy Spirit came so close that every cell in my being was pulsing with the love of God… it is hard to explain but true…it is biblical

 

Lets look at a book I have taught from and used in my maturing and for my character development and life with God

 

Listening Prayer by Leanne Payne.  Baker books is publisher. Lets see what Dallas Willard had to say about this resource:

 

 

Approaching God for communion with Him instead of a begging or defeated experience will raise us from the dead.  Is the bible true… and we all said YES IT IS…so it is true and true right now that the promise of John 17:22-23a is ours.  We must be obedient and take it by faith which has a substance.

 

You get to take this promise from where the throne of grace  not the throne of rejection of a busy signal or throne of ignore me because I have been bad

 

Please here what I am going to say right now …hear this with your spirit not your brain…the whole point of pondering our approach to God is this:

 

Intellectual blocks and spiritual blocks will dissolve in this listening posture and life with God

 

When we begin to very intentionally and obedientiary chose to PRACTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD we enter into the place we belong…we get back to the garden….

I feel like one of The Three Stooges and then there is the Sovereignty of God ???

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Do you ever feel like in your relationship with Image result for google image moe larry and curlyGod one of the Three Stooges ?  I love the show when they did whose on first, whose on second.  God where are you and where am I in this situation ?  Do I wait for you to do it ?  Do I try fixing this mess myself ?  

God is in control right evangelicals !  But my life often feels out of control.  My charismatic friends react differently to how i do and they say we have authority for stuff I thought You only had authority for.  

 

So whose theology is correct about who you really are God and who I am ?  Image result for sovereign god     

Do I ask you Lord ?  Some do this declare it thing ????  Some cast out devils.  I thought I just pray the Our Father and you do it .  When I get sick do I say “If it is your will heal me ?”  Some say its ours for the taking. You healed us 2000 years ago and do not even say you are sick.   Just say out loud I am healed. But that seems dumb to alot of us when we are walking around with cancer.   Moe, Larry and Curly I do not think were even Christians, but we look foolish to each other and those who do not even believe in you when we tell them stuff that are 180 degree polar opposites.  Image result for google image moe larry and curly

Quotes

“What do we mean by [the sovereignty of God]? We mean the supremacy of God, the kingship of God, the god-hood of God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that God is God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, doing according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, so that none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doest Thou? (Dan. 4:35). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in Heaven and earth, so that none can defeat His counsels, thwart His purpose, or resist His will (Psa. 115:3). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is “The Governor among the nations” (Psa. 22:28), setting up kingdoms, overthrowing empires, and determining the course of dynasties as pleaseth Him best. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the “Only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords” (1 Tim. 6:15). Such is the God of the Bible.” A. W. Pink, The Sovereignty of God, chapter 1.practice).

GODS GRAND DESIGN FOR HUMAN HISTORY includes the Sovereignty of God in this doctrine. Let’s try a simple definition to begin.  The Sovereignty of God is the biblical teaching that all things are under God’s rule and control, and that nothing happens without His direction or permission. God works not just some things but all things according to the counsel of His own will (see Eph. 1:11). His purposes are all-inclusive and never thwarted (see Isa. 46:11); nothing takes Him by surprise. The sovereignty of God is not merely that God has the power and right to govern all things, but that He does so, always and without exception. In other words, God is not merely sovereign de jure (in principle), but sovereign de facto

Shema – Hear and Obey

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
Shema – Hear and Obey
by Lois Tverberg
“Then (Moses) took the book 

 of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people; and they said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient (shema)!” Exodus 24:7

The word that means “hear or listen,” shema (pronounced “shmah”) is an excellent example of the difference between Hebrew, which stresses physical action and Greek and Western culture that stresses mental activity.

Listening, in our culture, is a mental activity, and hearing just means that our ears pick up sounds. But in Hebrew, the word shemadescribes hearing and also its effects – taking heed, being obedient, doing what is asked. Any parent who yells at their children, “Were you listening?” when they ignore a command to pick up their rooms understands that listening should result in action. In fact, almost every place we see the word “obey” in the Bible, it is translated from the word “shema.”

The word “Shema” is also the name of the “pledge of allegiance” that Jesus and other observant Jews up until this day have said every morning and evening. It is the first word of the first line, “Hear (Shema), O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might… ” (Deut. 6:4-5) By saying this, a Jew would remind himself of his commitment to love God, to dedicate himself to following God and doing his will. Some Jews teach their children the Shema as soon as they learn to talk! It is the central affirmation for a Jewish person of his or her commitment to the Lord. The word “shema” here again means, “take heed!” or “listen and obey!”

This gives us a clue of why Jesus says,
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” He is calling us to put his words into action, not just listen. He wants us to be doers of the word, and not hearers only. (James 1:22) We as Westerners put all our stress on what is in our minds, and tend to consider action as “dead works. But Hebrews understood that we have not truly put what we have heard into our hearts until it transforms our lives as well.

What is Pregnant with adoration ?

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It is Christmas time and I have a good friend whose birthday is on Christmas.  There is a lot of competition for attention having been born on Christmas.  Look how happy this couple looks during pregnancy.  The happy husband anticipates new life with his ear against his wife’s womb.  I have been learning this year that love goes two ways. Love goes horizontal to other people in our lives and love goes vertical = to Father Son and Holy Spirit. 

As I intentionally slow down and sit down with God to encounter Jesus, the song like that which Mary sang in Luke actually comes forth from my heart to Gods heart.  There is an umbilical cord that still remains with US and Jesus.

In sports there are postures and positions on a team. Defense and offense.  So what has been my posture with God this Christmas ?  Am I , Barbara, singing at Jesus or to Jesus ?  A friend of mine spoke one day about entering into Gods courts with praise. The picture I got was this pregnant pause.  I am coming before my most Holy God and the very lover of ME.  I pause now in anticipation of an encounter with God the Father Son and Holy Spirit.  My heart leaps and bows sometimes at the same time.  haha.

Could I adore You ?

All around the world little children and people in wheel chairs and hospital beds and on football fields are singing that great worship melody – O COME LET US ADORE HIM – we are pregnant with adoration.  Pregnant with adoration together and pregnant with adoration individually.

I find hope coming back and sorrows being lessened as I ponder anew being impregnated with Emmanuel.  It still knocks me out that Jesus came as a baby.  I love when I get real child like with God in our love affair.   The word ABAR in bible means to cross into. You become pregnant in Gods womb again which is where we came from before earth. ABAR in 1 Kings 19:11 means to pass by in a very significant and passionate way.  Pregnant with adoration comes in lingering with God. Not to get something. We linger to BE WITH the Christ.  This is our identity in the very world we live.

11122758 – angel gabriel – side view – 3d render

I was meditating on the Song Mary sang to her child the Lord. I was really looking at with my spirit what was going on between the old lady and the young lady.  Elizabeth in messianic birth beyond her days and Mary in messianic birth as a young woman. I do not think they only made cookies or swept the floor.  I think they fell beyond their knees…. pregnant with adoration can bring us to be faint with love…faith with adoration…. we feel and sense Jesus with every cell in our being in its fullness…. our ambilical cord  connects to the Holy Spirit and the Spirit reveals Jesus up close and very personal.  I am not going to settle for stale love with Jesus.  Holy Spirit impregnates us with Jesus .

When pregnant with adoration the baby in the manger leaps in my womb. I can hear the very heart of love Jesus has for me beating… speaking… The intentional pursuit of Jesus creates pregnant adoration. Adoration is cultivated.

My most favorite presents in life are to know others who are truly going after Father Son and Holy Spirit encounters.  To linger or not to linger…mmmmmm….. If you have an encounter with adoring God I would love love love to tell others.   I will finish with the truth that I really pursue. Jesus says that the same love the Father has for Jesus he has for us.  I pray that the Lord kills anything in me that keeps that over the top almost incomprehensible reality for all of us.
 John 17:11b   ” so that they may be one as we are one.” 

John 17:26 ” I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.  “

Glory to God in the highest and peace to all mankind.

How do you know if you believe or see yourself and life as an orphan ? Do you feel disconnected from being loved ?

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Image result for google image of orphan

if you live life not known, you need to be known…. you may not know you are doing this.  this goes on from the time of being a child.  you decide you are alone and i need to protect myself because no one will protect me. If you feel alone and that there is no one to trust….you believe you are alone…truth is God is available but the natural mind says we are alone…the enemy created the orphan system… part of what develops when children see the faults in their parents and internalize those faults and a distrust toward parents comes bigger and bigger….. child closes off their spirit… you can withdraw or rebel….deep down root is disconnection from love…it makes more sense to be independent and only trust yourself…. if you family showed no emotion, every child needs love….. we develop our identity from being loved… a stoic family is a generational family raised with orphan hearts… they teach their children it is not safe to be yourself…it is not safe to be vulnerable and show your weaknesses….roots come from evil one….  like Frank Sinatra you said I do it my way….  some become performers and some just close down and close off…walls withdrawal, shell….life….deep down inside i feel unloved…..Image result for google image of orphan

the positional truth is in our spirit but the work of the spirit is to bring the appropriated work of the Cross into our soul.  Can you hear God very well?  Disconnect with shame and it is rooted in fear of disconnection… when we believe a lie we empower the liar thought God is right there. Bret Rutland helps humans get connected.  See what the roots are that keep you from being beloved… roots are not what happens but the root is the belief system …an orphan spirit is removed by the Holy Spirit so you see what you believe that gets changed.  Romans 12 we get transformed by revelation of who God is and who we are and that is what shifts things.

Here are some topics we will cover: 1) Nature of God- Why do you believe people struggle to be close to God?  How do you believe “religion” has distorted who God is?  Does God’s love towards you change based on what you do or how you see yourself?  2) The Orphan Heart- What is an orphan heart and how does it develop?  Where did this concept of an orphan heart come from?  How did you experience an orphan heart?  3) Our New Identity as beloved sons and daughters- How did we as believers get the identity as beloved sons and daughters?  What does life look like as His beloved?  4) Receiving our New Identity- Why do most people struggle with receiving their new identity?  How do old ways of thinking and believing war against our new identity “in Christ”?  5) Healing from Wounds (in our hearts)- Why do people’s wounds so often go unhealed?  How are wounds and identity connected?  6) Father’s blessing over us-  Is Father’s blessing something we need to earn or do something to get?  How do we receive Father’s blessings in our life?Image result for google image of present

Angels on Assignment – It must be Christmas

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Luke 1:26-38 

Christ’s Birth Announced to Mary

26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”[a]

29 But when she saw him,[b] she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

Advent is preparation time.

Zechariah just prior is encountered by an angel 1:18 Luke and he asked how can I be sure of this ?  Angels are real and they still today bring messages and ministry for God and to God.  In Genesis and Numbers there are references 32 times regarding angels. All angels were created holy, Matthew 8:38.

 

Angels have names, ranks, positions and jobs to do for God.  In Isaiah 14 we see where Satan was thrown out of heaven and down to the earth. So one third of angels are evil and are very organized and less powerful than Gods elect angels.   Enjoy this 15 minute broadcast to bring truth and curiosity to your heart and mind this Christmas.  Angels are on assignment.  O come let us adore Him.  Christ the Lord.  Angels we have heard on high sweetly singing over the plains and the mountains in reply echoing their joyous strains. Angels we have heard on high sweetly sweetly through the night and the mountains in reply echoing their brief delight. Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.  Broadcast times are posted in main menu of this website.  We pray for you to receive a gentle breath of God on your heart from these weekly inspirational talks.   Pastor Barbara Moore
