Isn’t it clear that “practicing the presence” is for those who are not indwelt with the presence of Christ through the Holy Spirit? There is no need to “practice” a “presence” when the perfect God of the universe dwells within you in all of His perfection. For full post go to the LTW blog here.
Dear Dwayna, I wanted to let you know that I was so blessed speaking with your mother at the table she had set up in Smoky Mountain National Park on Saturday, Sept. 20th, 2008. God is so good!! I had a chance to take some of your literature, and I really appreciate your ministry outreach and the willingness to pray with others I experienced firsthand that day. We sure had a little taste of how Satan is trying to destroy ministries that proclaim the good news, BUT we also had a chance to see how, as Christian sisters, we were able to uplift one another in prayer. [While I was praying at the LTW to the Smokies booth with your mother, a man filled with vitriol was trying to disrupt our prayer.] I really never had such an experience like that...I felt as though Satan was really present and using another person at the park to try and distract us from praying openly that day....Wow, what an eye opener God gave me to keep on my toes for Satan's sly tactics! Keep on keeping on for the Lord...You are doing a great job. God bless you, sister, and keep up God's calling on your life.Joanne PattersonCosby, TN
I had been living in Los Angeles for about a month when I met Dwayna at the Lighting The Way table in 2002. I had been looking for a church home and fellowship with other Christians and stopped at her table after noticing the sign she was displaying: “See what God says about your future...for FREE.” She invited me to attend church with her, and I found a new home at her church. LA can be a lonely place, and had it not been for Dwayna and Lighting The Way, I would have not found a church home at the CMA church of Santa Monica where I met some of the wonderful people I now can call my friends. Lighting The Way is a real blessing and much needed addition to the Venice boardwalk. In the presence so many mystics and fortunetellers, it’s refreshing to see people sharing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ with gentleness, love, and respect.JosephUSA
