Hello! Thank you for visiting my site and sharing your precious time with me. My desire is to share with you treasures I discover in God's vibrant Word, and from moments raptured in His embrace. People who have known me well and for years can attest to the change God has formed in my life. From my perspective, the changes are profound. I know better who I am and my worth in His eyes ~ the eyes of the One Who fashioned me ~ That is truly a treasure worth searching for, a treasure worth living for. My prayer is to express what I have discovered about our wonderful God, so that you, too, might rush into His embrace and find this love that transforms. In expectant anticipation, Dianna

An Introductory Note From Genelle - New Anointing Ministries

I have known Dianna for many years and I am privileged to call her my friend. She has a deep and abiding love for the Lord and an honesty and sincerity along with an almost childlike faith in God that is an inspiration to all who know her. She is an avid student and has a great love for the Word of God, always striving to draw closer to Him. She refers to Him as "Abba" because in her heart, He is her very close and loving Father. Though she has a spirit of tenderness and warmth, she is not afraid to speak out for her Beloved Father and her faith in Him. Dianna has a real burden to help lead lost and hungry souls to Christ. As you return to read her articles, which will be posted frequently, with all issues archived, you will see that she is a gifted writer, and will address issues that are so very needful for the world today. So, I welcome Dianna as an online minister. This is her personal ministry and I invite you to visit often and pray for her as she contributes what the Lord would have her to say, and as He leads the hearers He calls here to her page. Let all who enter be drawn to the One Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the author of all life.


Read Colossians 3:1-15

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

SNOWY GRACE

Several areas in my backyard are eyesores: ugly chicken-scratch holes, metal watering pans, an abandoned swing lying on the ground - odds and ends of life scattered about. As I glanced out the window one day, I thought again how I disliked the sight. I told myself I should clean it up, but other responsibilities required my attention. Besides, it was cold outside and just beginning to snow. Hours later, I passed the window again. Where earlier only ugliness caught my eye, now beauty prevailed. A thick blanket of powdery snow filled in holes, flowed over objects, and concealed what I had considered ugly. All was pure, white, spotless. Our lives are like that backyard. They become cluttered, dirty, and ugly with sin. Then we enter into covenant relationship with Jesus. We put on Christ, donning his robe of righteousness in exchange for our robe of corrupted humanity. Unlike the blanket of snow that will melt, this robe will be ours forever. Now when we go before God, the righteous life of Jesus Christ covers us. I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness.

Isaiah 61:10

A PLEA FOR LIGHT

As I roused up this first morning of a new year, in that peaceful state between sleep and wakefulness, I saw a picture in my mind - not a dream but a communication - and immediately I knew the meaning. I saw the skylight of a major city in the dark of night. Blackness swallowed up the buildings, the roadways, and the large body of water wrapping itself around the perimeter of the land. Lights sparkling in the windows of the buildings gave the only indication that the city existed. They shone forth brilliantly highlighting outlines of the structures, dancing in the water, making the darkness retreat. I thought, how lovely! then immediately knew the meaning. It is a picture of the light shining in the darkness, the purpose for every Christian's life. And I also knew, for America, the church is failing. I make this a public plea to every pastor, preacher, and teacher within every denomination of the Body of Jesus Christ - you do a difficult job, but please dedicate yourselves to selflessness and to instructing the rest of us to selfless living. We don't know how to live this way! We need guidance! Stop encouraging us to greed and self preservation in your teachings. Lead us in the True way of Jesus Christ - love, obedience, unity. Then all our needs will be met, we will have abundance to give to every good cause, because then God can trust us. Please, stop worrying about the collection plate and how many people walk through the doors of the church. Instruct us in the ways everlasting, Father will take care of the rest. We need this! The world needs this! If Christians won't shine with the true life and love of God, then all will be consumed by the darkness invading our land.

Mark 8:34-36 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Matt 5:14-16 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (NIV)
