“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…There, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
John 8:32, 36

Arise in Me was written to help those who are imprisoned by the Strongholds of the devil.  We are in a spiritual warfare and Satan is waiting to steel, kill and destroy us.  He is waiting like a roaring lion ready to devour us.

A stronghold is fortified place.  A strong place.  I like to look at the definition as strong and hold.
**Strong – firm, solid, tough. Hold – dominance, grip, control, possession.  I also look at stronghold as a barricade.

Barricades are quickly put up to prevent, block or hinder anything or anyone from coming into a certain area.

Arise in Me is a mini workbook designed to help tear down a barricade ...

Grace Like Snow


Was the thought I had when my husband presented me with some pictures of snow covered mountains that he had taken that day.

As we stood in awe of the beauty of the picture…the mountain had a whole new meaning to us because the snow had brought out the distinct outlines and definition of the mountain. The radiance that came from the sun shining upon an already beautiful white mountain was so compelling…it left us with no other words but to praise our great God and think about His grace that covers us. God’s love was displayed on the cross…Jesus paid our debt.

Grace Like Snow.

Like snow falling on a mountain…so does God’s grace fall upon me.
Your loving favor covers my transgressions…so that I may be set free.
Though my sins be like scarlet…offensive to my G...

Arise In Me Prayer

Arise In Me
By Stella Rooks

A Battle Cry…A Prayer for Victory!
Arise In Me, Oh God, and fill me with Your Spirit.
Let me see Your power; let me feel Your presence.
Arise in Me…In You I have Victory!

When the battle begins
The tug of war between my faith and fear;
The confusion between trust and doubt…
Arise in me and make things clear.

When thoughts cause me to be on the edge,
And things seem out of control…
Arise in me and renew my mind;
Arm me with Your strength and make me whole.

When trials come and I am discouraged;
When I feel defeated as though I have failed the test…
Arise in me and let me feel Your presence.
I need You; You are my Defender…in You I find rest.

Forgive me of my sins;
For whatever hinders You from coming in.
Arise in me O God…be my Divine intervention!
Cause me to ...
