Fall 2021 Update

Fresh Start for all Nations
“You’ve lost weight. You look so beautiful” These are not words that I normally hear from people. Something has changed, but it isn’t my outward appearance, it’s my heart. For years, I had lived a heavy life, one that had been weighed down my hurts, offenses, and even loss of relationships. As a result, I was walking with cement boots on my feet and tremendous anxiety in my heart.

RUNNING AFTER FREEDOM…

by Laura Chambers – U.S.A.

“You’ve lost weight. You look so beautiful” These are not words that I normally hear from people. Something has changed, but it isn’t my outward appearance, it’s my heart. For years, I had lived a heavy life, one that had been weighed down my hurts, offenses, and even loss of relationships. As a result, I was walking with cement boots on my feet and tremendous anxiety in my heart.

For over a year, a dear friend of mine encouraged me to go to Fresh Start. It wasn’t until the middle of the summer of 2020, that I finally gave in and decided to go. This decision has forever changed the trajectory of my life and I pray the lives of future generations in our family.

In Psalm 63:8, David said, “My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.” While I am not usually drawn to the KJV, this verse so completely captures what has happened over the last year. I have had the privilege of processing six different hurts, losses, or offenses, with all three often wrapped up in a particular process.

Once I tasted the freedom from Jesus, I couldn’t stop running towards Him. There are still things to process, but that is okay because I desire to live a lifestyle of short accounts and allow the Lord to process through issues with me. None of my processes have been the same and I have seen the beauty of processing in a group, with friends, one-on-one with leaders and even over the phone. When you are running after freedom, it doesn’t matter how the process happens, what matters is that it happens with the Holy Spirit as your guide.

I find myself sharing Fresh Start almost everywhere

I go. I long to see others walk in freedom.

It’s never too late for a Fresh Start!

LIVING OUR LEGACY

TIMELESS TRUTH AND INSPIRATION FROM OUR FOUNDER, PASTOR STEVE PETERSON

“More Than One Thing Can Be True at the Same Time!”

My husband Steven had many sayings, the above being one of them. What does this mean? The following is an example. I was in a meeting with our team, and someone asked me a question. I responded with a tone of impatience. When I realized I had hurt this team member, I was deeply convicted and grieved. God was dealing with me. I realized I had a choice to humble myself and ask for forgiveness, or just “move on” like nothing had happened. Conviction can lead to a choice of humility and obedience to God, being willing to be wrong. I had an opportunity to make this right. I asked my teammate to forgive me for the hurt I had caused her. Thank You, Lord, for providing Your pathway to freedom. I am grateful to God that HE was at work in me in spite of my failure. Therefore, something that initially brought grief and regret in my life also brought gratitude and freedom.

“More Than One Thing Can Be True at the Same Time!”

Philippians 1:6
