"Shining In 2014 - God Has A Paradise"


Golden Nuggets from Isaiah

While reading through Isaiah I noticed all the scriptures that I had highlighted in the same Bible since 1979 (35 years). It spoke to me that these were spiritual nuggets shared by many pastors and saints over that time and I felt I should write them down.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 1:18 (You can be renewed)

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 26:3 (You can be at peace)

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 35:8 (You don’t have to be a fool)

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. 40:31 (You can fly with the eagles)

I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 42:8 (You can give HIM the glory)

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 43:2 (You’ll never walk alone)

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
43:18/19 (You can forget yesterday and look for now)

The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. 50:4 (You can encourage a brother or sister)






Has anyone told you

I love you


I love you


Jesus loves you!

If you need prayer contact Sandy Witherspoon or any member of the Twelve Disciples or the Servant Team

Prayer Ministry





The one thing that holds this ministry and our work together is our prayer ministry headed up by Deidre Schilling and the prayer team known as the Twelve Disciples.  Did you know that our prayer register has over 300 requests to date?  Each of the names is called out to the Lord everyday not just on Wednesday.  It is a humbling thing to call out 300 names to the Lord knowing that you need as much prayer as any of these names.  Many people will be touched by the Lord through Hands Up Ministry who otherwise might never attend church.

Hands Up Meetings




Are You Available?



Commerce Center and IS are now having meetings weekly on Wednesdays.  Contact is Deidre Schilling.



Manufacturing Center /“The Light” at Park 500: Praying for revival of meetings at these locations.

Mezcala 2014

Missions Trip To Mexico

Due to scheduling conflicts Hands Up Ministry will not be represented by team members returning to Mexico.  The local church that partnered with us last year is returning to work on a district center.  It is our hope that we will return in 2015 to further the completion of Mezcala Church

Pray for our churches in the Dominican Republic and Mexico

  • Villa Progresso Church, Dominican Republic

  • El Curro Church, Dominican Republic

  • La Resolana, Mexico

  • Mezcala, Mexico


Be missions minded not absent minded.


Golden Nuggets from Isaiah (continued)

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 53:5 (You can be healed)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. 54:17 (You have divine protection)


For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 55:8/9 (You know GOD is bigger and smarter)

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 55:11 (You can stand on HIS word)

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. 56:11 (You have been warned)

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;  To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. 61:1/3 (You have been empowered)

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. 64:4 (You can only imagine)

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 64:6 (You look like this without Jesus)

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 65:24 (You are on GOD’s heart)




Attitude is most important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failure, than success, than what other people think, say, or do. 

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.  It will make or break a business, a church, a home, a friendship, and an organization. 

The most remarkable thing is, you have a choice every day of what your attitude will be.  We cannot change the actions of others. 

We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we change is our attitude.  Life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it.



If you always think what you’ve always thought,

Then you will always feel what you’ve felt.


If you always feel what you’ve always felt,

Then you will always do what you’ve always done.


If you always do what you’ve always done,

Then you will always get what you’ve always gotten.


If you always get what you’ve gotten,

Then you will always think what you’ve always thought.
