Let My Faith Increase

Let My Faith Increase

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

Help me remember

your plans are good

when life is hard

and I’m misunderstood

Show me your light

when the world is dark

You are faithful to me

despite my any doubts

Show me Your Glory

fill me with peace

I trust You forever

let my faith increase

faith 6

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. – Luke 17:5-6 NIV

Time Of Realignment And Change


Seasons of Change may come quickly. Pure Glory helps me see the bigger picture here.

Has the pressure on you increased? Your way difficult and tempted to quit? Congratulations! God is preparing you for a promotion. The season has changed and the new is uncomfortable. This causes you to listen with an open heart and move in the direction that God directs. Old habits and ways of dealing with your circumstances do not work and it causes you to cry out to God, for relief and new strategies. This is your time of realignment, so you are in the right place, at the right time.

Eagles build nests for their young on high tree branches and on ridges. Although the parent eagles feed their young, when the fledglings get bigger feathers that make them capable of flying, they begin to venture from the nest. Eventually, the eaglets learn to fly and hunt on their own, learning from their parents. It is the…

Releasing the Power of God

There is power in the Name of Jesus. There is healing in the Name of Jesus. But how many times are we not releasing the power of God by the words that come out of our mouths? Do we speak our illness or do we speak the Word of God over ourselves or our loved ones?

I admit this is hard sometimes. Especially when you or someone you love is going through a trial. Yet, what if we stepped out in faith and proclaimed the Word over our bodies and any illness? Join me today. By His stripes we (and our loved ones) are healed, in Jesus Name!

What Seeds Are Your Words Planting?

As I join the throng of High School Educators and Assistants I am learning the power of words on the next generation. I am humbled. And sad. It has only been a month yet I already see the “kingdoms” that some adults establish to prove their importance. I have seen good teachers who encourage and strengthen our youth. But I have also seen those who plant seeds of doubt and confusion.


What Seeds are your words planting?

Here are some Humorous Examples of Types of Teachers from Teachthought.com

  • Crazy Teacher – This is the teacher whose class you don’t miss. The one that roller skates into class on the first day of school tossing out goodie bags of highlighters and breath mints, and swigs Mountain Dew right out of the 2-liter bottle before putting it back in her purse.

  • Rebel Teacher – This is the one who mocks the principal when they turn their back, thumbs their nose at “the state,” and encourages students to stand on their desks and rip their SpringBoard book into pieces. Viva la rebel!

  • Over-Achiever Teacher – This is the teacher that has to have their class first at everything: first in fundraising, first to the lunchroom, first in reading goals, first in parent participation, and first to every PLC meeting–everything graded, in alphabetical order, with a “research-based strategy” ready to start the meeting. All in the name of education and “school spirit,” of course.

  • Fire-and-Brimstone – If you do not learn to read Chaucer or solve theorems with the  same urgency as the Fire-and-Brimstone teacher, you’ll fail. At life.

God Promised Us Rain

Have you ever been to the desert? Miles and miles of sand with no water in sight. Even the cactuses look dry. Sometime I have found that my life seems like a desert. Sometimes relationships or jobs or hope just dries up. And it seems like there is no hope. Been there? Yeah me too. 

Just when I give up it seems that God shows up. I really think He was there the whole time. He said He would never leave me or forsake me. Maybe in the desert I just forgot that part. Heat will do that to a girl…

But God promises us rain – to refresh, to renew, and restore everything we thought had dried up. Hang on friends, here comes the rain!

Now Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of the roar of an abundance of rain.” -1 Kings 18:41

If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and obediently do them, then I will give you rain in its season, and the land will yield her produce and the trees of the field bear their fruit. – Leviticus 26:3-4 

The Lord will open for you His good treasure house, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow. The Lord will make you the head leader and not the tail follower; and you will be above only, and you will not be beneath, if you listen and pay attention to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today, to observe them carefully. – Deuteronomy 28:12-13

A Supernatural God with Supernatural Kids


Still true today!

Originally posted on Prayers and Promises:

Have you ever gone on a treasure hunt? start at one place and follow the clues. Last night I went on one – with God! It started as a text. Have you ever written something without thinking? Then you go back and read it and wonder, “where did that come from?”

Someone sent me a compliment on worship. And it texted back,
“Thank you, water at knees now…” Their response was, “huh?”.
So was mine! So I started searching my Bible and found Ezekiel 47.

Ezekiel 47:12 AMP
And on the banks of the river on both its sides, there shall grow all kinds of trees for food; their leaf shall not fade nor shall their fruit fail [to meet the demand]. Each tree shall bring forth new fruit every month, [these supernatural qualities being] because their waters came from out of the sanctuary. And their fruit shall be for…

I Am

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~

I am

I was praying in the spirit
Seeking my daily bread
When the mighty voice of waters
Spoke to me and said

Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Prophesy what you see
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see

Bride of Christ arise
I AM the Way
I AM the Door
I AM the Light
And the giver of Life

From this new perspective
I see His glory going forth in waves
Healing His body of believers today
I see the lame man dancing with new limbs
I see the dumb man talking to his friends
I see the blind man beholding Your Beauty
I see the fatherless adopted into Your Royal Family

Your Glory comes in waves
Covers your body today
the bound are loosed
addictions and sickness fall away
Anxiety and depression leave the fold
The broken hearted are filled with joy
The Splendor of Your Holiness
Lights up our way

Your worship defeats enemies
Your praise opens doors you can’t see

I AM the Way
I AM the Door
I AM the Light
And the giver of Life



Exodus 3:14 “And God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’ and He said , “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”
