Is She Dressed for His Return?

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, In : Ministry 

No prophet or messenger from God ever came to God's people saying, "Hey, you're doing a great job, keep that up." No, be careful that the voice crying out in the desert to make straight the paths for the King isn't the one that offends you or the one referred to as "tearing down" the church. Those who tear down the church attempt to correct her without any direction or hope for how things will be made better. Those who tear down the church also are those who help her keep sleeping and ...

He Will Establish You

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, In : Ministry 

In Matthew Chapter 16 we see two stories back to back that reveal much about the way Christians can act and it isn’t always how Christ would desire. We are being molded and shaped on a daily basis, as we walk with the Lord, just like the disciples were when they walked with Him. We are sometimes no different than the double minded apostle, Simon Peter. He was the disciple with the foot shaped mouth.

This is a skit that I wrote to help illustrate what it has been like for me to allow God to prepare me for ministry.  Hopefully this will encourage others that God will always take you back on the table.  Because He's good.

Phil 2:3-4 "Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with HUMILITY OF MIND regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others."  >>  I woke up at 4:30 this morning having had a dream.  The body of Christ was in a worship service and we were singing songs I've never heard before.  God was being exalted and worshiped on a greater level than ever, because of the hearts of the people.  I'll ke...

Hands Full of Blessing

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, December 10, 2014, In : Ministry 


Would you rather be the hungry person sitting under a tree when the apple falls or the person who climbs the tree and shakes the apples down into the hands of the hungry. The one who shakes the apples down has all he needs to start with. He's already in the tree with the apples.... Climb the tree, don't just sit under it. 

It is an attack of the enemy to make people think too much about what they don't have and not enough about the wonderful things they do have. Where ever satan can p...
