Commitment - To Do or Not To Do - Steve Martin - Paperback & Kindle

Commitment - To Do or Not To Do

Published Aug. 18, 2019

Paperback: $14.95
Kindle $2.95

A few months ago I sensed the Lord wanted me to write a book on being committed, day in and day out. Not just about some fad that comes and goes, as they do each decade, or even monthly, but of the eternal perspective He has, and gives to us. 

People need something to stand on, that doesn’t shift with every wind and movement that comes along. They need solid ground, especially when their world begins to shake. There is no other on which to stand, on which to build one’s life, than on the Word of God, the Torah, the Bible. The very one Who has created everything certainly knows what is needed for each of us to achieve fulfillment, purpose, and the destiny He has given in His ultimate realm of salvation, redemption, and life with Him, for us and the nations. 

When the Holy Spirit gave me the thought to search for all the messages I had thus far written, now going beyond 470 in these last 9 years, that had the word “commit” or “commitment” in them, I was amazed when over 70 appeared on the list. Being an accountant by trade, that is 15%. Not an insignificant number. Thus those compiled messages in this book will reveal at least one thing – that our Lord is faithful and committed, and as we choose to follow Him, we too will be as He is.

Choose this day to seek Him, know Him, and be committed above all to Him. Then you too will discover that His Word is the final word.

Trusting the process isn't ever easy, as a general rule. As humans, we are naturally wired, and even socially conditioned, to try to take matters into our own hands. We desperately cling to the notion that if we can control every input, then we can control the output. Fortunately for us, life doesn't happen in a vacuum. Things are dynamic, circumstances are fluid, and change is the only constant. This can be unnerving as we are striving to control our own journey.
Today, I'd like to encourage you to take a different perspective: Instead of trying to control every step of the journey, what if we just tried ENJOYING each step? Instead of scratching and clawing to hold onto any semblance of control we can find, what if we just made the CHOICE to surrender? The very Spirit of God that gives us life is also beautifully keeping this universe of existence in a very delicate balance. If we trust that God is Love, then it only makes sense that as we trust, the outcome will flow from love. Our mantra should be that "everything is working out for my highest good." Everything though? YES, quite literally, EVERYTHING. Sometimes the thing we perceive as "bad" at first glance ends up being the catalyst for our biggest transformation or our greatest breakthrough.
I once read a story on the notion of "good" or "bad." Let's use an example of a fictional person named Steve. Steve is riding his bicycle and falls, breaking his leg. Our initial response is that this is definitely BAD. So, Steve goes to the hospital, and while having his broken leg examined, doctors discover a cancer in the marrow that is in very early stages, and easily treated before it is a life-threatening problem. Steve wouldn't have discovered this until the cancer had spread much further if not for breaking his leg. At this point, was breaking his leg really a "bad" thing?
Seeing From a Different Perspective
I feel it is important to point out that these things don't always or even predominantly come from calamity. This time, I'll use a more personal example, but nothing too juicy. When I was a small child, my parents were looking to buy a new home. They found one they just loved, and immediately put in an offer. The offer was rejected, so they went up a little bit. In the time between acceptance and closing, something went "wrong," and the deal fell through. My parents were pretty disappointed for about a week. It was exactly one week later when my parents were visiting my mom's parents (in the next neighborhood over), and a neighbor stopped to talk to them outside and told them about a house that was about to go up for sale due to the couple relocating out of state. The home was just under double the size, in a better neighborhood, with a much larger lot, and my parents got it for $10,000 less than the home they THOUGHT they had to have.
My point in all of this is that sometimes, what LOOKS to be one way is actually something totally different when a different perspective is presented. Trusting in the process is an acknowledgement that we don't see the entire picture; but rather, only one piece of the puzzle. Maybe the years you've spent pushing against that brick wall was never about moving the wall. Instead, maybe it was about strengthening you for what was to come next. Especially lately, my life has gone anything but according to plan, and I'm okay with that. I'll share in another post just how drastically things have changed with me just trusting the process.
If you don't see or hear this anywhere else today, YOU MATTER! YOU ARE IMPORTANT! YOU'VE GOT THIS!
With love.

coming to Strength For Israel gathering Sept. 6, 2019

Aug. 8, 2019

Greetings friends.

For over 5 years we have had the joy of connecting with Nissim and Hadassah Lerner in Jerusalem, Israel. Having stayed often in their home, spending time with their children and grandchildren, and meeting those they have long assisted in making aliyah, after doing so themselves from Virginia over 15 years ago, we now have the honor of having Hadassah speak to the Strength For Israel gathering September 6, 2019, in Fort Mill, South Carolina. (Details below.)

Along with husband Nissim, having proven themselves faithful in welcoming and housing those immigrating to Israel already, the Lord has now given the Learners a new organization, His Lighthouse Inc. to see established and built in the Land of Israel. The Lord gave the initial vision to Nissim early this year.

After hearing Hadassah speak at the Aliyah Conference in October 2017 and give a very in-depth history of what it was like for them to make the move, I know you too will want to hear her.

They are preparing to now help the others coming, as in a "tsunami", as she expects and is planning for.

From what I have heard from them already, when with them in May 2019 in Jerusalem, our ministry is excited to join hands with them in this God-given endeavor.

Plan on joining us and hear first hand what the Lord is doing in Israel in these days, and how He is moving, literally, Jews from around the nations back to their land.

Strength For Israel's 1st gathering in the Barn! - July 5, 2019 in Fort Mill, SC

Mordecai (Maynard) Porter blows the shofar!

On Friday, July 5, 2019, the first Friday of the month gathering of the Strength For Israel for Shabbat occurred. Over 55 people presented themselves to the Lord, to receive His ahava (love) and shalom (peace) in The Barn at Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

After the greeting by leader David Peterman, Shabbat candles were lit by Luana Peterman, wife of David. Steve & Laurie Martin then led the people in worship, joined by Tommy Lopez (keyboard), Doug Goff (bass guitar), Tom Fahey (electric and acoustic guitars), Mike Stephens (percussion), and Steve Hammer Niewulis, all the way from Hickory, North Carolina, on the drums. That was after he had only a few hours notice! Luana Peterman and Tiffany Bryant also sang beautifully with the team.

David Peterman then spoke on "Ancient Paths", as some in USA Christian churches are now saying that the Old Testament has no relevance for today, and need not be read. Wrong! The entire Bible, Scripture, is for believers today and must be read, understood, and honored if we are to follow in the Lord's ways and be His disciples.

When I got home after the meeting, I had received a text from a dear friend and decided to share my response to her with you.

We give thanks to Abba, God the Father, Yeshua (Jesus) and Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit for coming!

Ahava and shalom,

Good morning, Cathy.

Thanks for your text you sent last night at 10:17 pm, after Laurie and I had gone to bed. Because a text response may have woken you up, I am emailing a response instead.

I appreciate your words, "there was an anointing on your worship that I think I would call "His authority".

Personally, I believe the Lord is not only giving Laurie and me, but also David and Luana Peterman, a new anointing for Strength For Israel. When we decided a few months ago that the Lord would have us move it from the "basement" (lower level room in Antioch) to the main auditorium Barn, after being down there a year and a half, even then we felt it would be going to the next level - literally too!

With that comes greater anointing from the Lord, and as you said, new authority to go with it.

We will be impacting the church, the neighborhood, and the cities around us, as the Lord is giving us a new platform to do that, in Him, for them.

Shabbat Shalom!


If you are in the Charlotte, North Carolina in August, plan on coming Aug. 2, 2109 (every 1st Friday night of the month at 7 pm) to our next gathering. Info here: Strength For Israel. Plan on coming even if you live outside of the city or state!

Here are some more photos from the Strength For Israel gathering July 5, 2019.
