AFTERWORD by Jeffrey Pelton

I have just read some of my wife’s testimony. I know these stories and struggles and victories. Intimately.

And I still sat and cried as I was completing the edits on this book. There were no surprises as I read, no turning over forgotten stones in pursuit of the truth, no sudden blinding revelations of “Oh, that’s what happened!”

I lived this stuff. I walked with Kathi through the blood and pain and turmoil and darkness—through the wilderness. And I wouldn’t trade a moment of it. Not because of how much I love her (oh, so much) or because I want you to think I’m some sort of good guy because “I was there” (I’m not that great, trust me) but because Kathi’s story is a narrative of life and hope, and the utter, relentless love and mercy and glory of God. It is the story, even though circumstances may differ, of us all.

Kathi’s story is the story of our Creator who loves us enough to surround us with his mercy and walk with us through any darkness. The Bible tells us “Even the darkness is light to you” and the journey Kathi and I have traveled together has proven that true, in the deepest recesses of our hearts, and in our lived experience.

Those of us who have been long in the “prophetic stream” recognize that sometimes there is a glamorizing of cookie-cutter experiences regarding “warfare” and “overcoming.” It is easy to discuss these truths in a kind of detached manner, as though the battles we face are “out there” in some nebulous larger arena. Such a viewpoint can become therapeutic—even romanticized—like reading an adventure novel or being caught up in an exciting movie. But the reality is, life is messy and grueling, even brutal, and some of us, despite out best intentions and commitments, have failed spectacularly. We look through church history and see the battlefield littered with catastrophic loss. Such “warfare,” when it impacts us up close and personal, is shocking.

The “wilderness” journey is another metaphor that we can be tempted to pass over lightly. Experience a season of difficulty or disappointment, and we opine sorrowfully about wandering forty years like Israel. Or we smile dutifully and try to bolster our spirits by glibly stating “I’m trusting the Lord!” even though everything inside screams with questions. A real wilderness is a hard place, frightening and dangerous. In the wilderness, none of our traditional comforts or safe spaces are available, so we tremble and wonder why all the promises of God have vanished like morning mist.

But God often sends his servants into the wilderness. The Son of God himself was led there by the Holy Spirit. The seeking child of God who presses in to know him will, at some point, find himself or herself wandering, lonely, tired, discouraged, hungry, and thirsty. It is disheartening to discover your compass doesn’t point toward home; spin the needle as you may, you just find it directing you deeper into the wasteland.

However, if in the emptiness we will gather our spiritual wits about us and be still, quieting our propensity toward unbelief and turning toward the breath of the Spirit, we can hear voices dancing lightly on his wind, carried from messengers past who cried out in the arid wilderness, “Make straight the ways of the Lord.”

Kathi is one of those voices. She tells her story straight. She tells her story raw. She tells her story real—not hiding the dark parts, not glossing over the failure, not pretending to be someone she is not.

My wife has offered us her “genuine self.” And in the offering, her story breathes life as she sings of how anguish and defeat led to beauty and triumph. She encountered the power of mercy and tenderness granted from the heart and hand of an always good, ever faithful, infinitely loving Father who led her to her heart’s true home.

God is merciful. God is kind. God is good.
And his love is everlasting, beyond all we can hope or think.

I pray that reading this has shown you that he will rescue anyone who looks to him with the simple hope that he will help you find your way. Kathi’s story serves as a signpost directing you to a path leading to the warmth and safety that awaits as you walk with the One who loves you and will lead you gently into life.
Into your true home.—Jeffrey Pelton

The Sound of Amazing Grace is Being Sung Over Your Life

By Kathi Pelton

I woke up hearing the words from the song “Amazing Grace” in my spirit being sung over God’s people.

We must remember that grace speaks of unmerited favor (favor with men and favor with God). It speaks of God’s watchfulness over His people, over the very details of their lives in every season and circumstance.

Often we fret and worry about the details of our lives; our health, finances, relationships, jobs or futures. We do not have to live in the oppressive grip of fear and anxiety because we live in the grip of grace that sets us free. We are free to rest in the trust of our Heavenly Father, knowing that He is watchful over the details of our lives. I am continually amazed at the ways our God is working behind the scenes of our lives to make sure that everything works together for our good. He goes ahead of us to plant seeds of beauty even in the ashes of difficult seasons.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Amazing grace ushers us into amazing peace and that peace guards our hearts and minds from warfare, fear and doubt. Grace does for us what we could never do for ourselves. Jesus is our grace and as we live in Him we live in grace.

Thank Him as you live in His grace. He is working on your behalf, He has not forgotten your requests or your needs but is ever aware of all that you need.

Amazing grace is being sung over you today. It is the soundtrack of your life and the favor that surrounds you. Join in the sweetness of that sound today.

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound…”


PRAYER REQUEST: Please keep me covered in prayer as I battle through having Covid-19. Thank you so very much.

He Is With You!

He Is With You
Kathi Pelton

As I sat down this morning to spend time with the Lord, I heard his quiet whisper say, “I am with you.”

This was such a sweet reminder and comfort because I am currently dealing with Covid-19. Though I was not feeling fear or any distance from my Father— the tender whisper was like a kiss on top of my head that brought peace and comfort.

Then I began to think of all the people that may be facing things without a warm home and loving family around them. I thought of His sons and daughters who are vulnerable and who might be fearful regarding something that they are facing. So, I wanted to just stop and take the time to write to you and tell you, “He is with you!”

Psalm 34:18 assures us that, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

You are never alone and he is never far from you. He is there to help you and strengthen you. He loves you so very much.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Fear can create a false sense of being abandoned or being without help but no matter what you feel— HE IS WITH YOU!

There are times that my soul (feelings/thoughts) try to take control and I have to speak to it and remind it to trust in the Lord. King David had to do this as well. In Psalm 43:5 he says,

“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”

Earlier this year, my precious brother died of complications from Covid. During his time in the hospital we would text each other back and forth (he was unable to talk on the phone due to his low oxygen). Almost every time he would text me and say, “Just praise Him.” or “Worship Him, for He is worthy.” He was reminding his soul and my soul to praise Him in the midst of the storm and in the midst of the battle for his life. I believe that he left this earth praising the One who he put his trust in. That trust carried him home to the arms of Jesus.

I will conclude with this— NOTHING can or ever will separate you from the love of God! He is with you now and forevermore. If your trust is in Him then you have a reason to praise.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Not even death can separate you! Nothing! He wants you to hear His whisper today that says,

“I am with you— always!”

Multiplication Is Now Coming

By Kathi Pelton

Today my husband and I woke up to our first day as “empty nesters.” As I thought of our 33 years of raising children, I suddenly realized that we have multiplied. What was once one household is now many households that bare our name and our children’s names. As I pondered this, I suddenly heard the verses from Isaiah 54:2-3,

““Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.”

I immediately knew that this was not only a scripture for my family but for his family corporately. Then I saw in my spirit numbers multiplying— numbers in families, numbers in the family of God, numbers in bank accounts, numbers in buildings, businesses, employees and ministries. Family was the key to this multiplication— even for businesses— for as they treated and honored their employees like family they multiplied and expanded to the left and to the right.‭‭

I knew that this multiplication was not about “numbers” but it was about family and expansion! When God told Adam and Eve (in Genesis 1:28) to be fruitful and multiply, he wanted them to bring forth children and grandchildren. He also wanted them to be spiritual fruitful and multiply in all that they put their hands and hearts to. This was for all mankind and generations to come.

Throughout the Bible we see titles often come from a “family origin.” Titles such as Father, Son, children of God, daughter of the Most High, father of nations, offspring, prince and more— they all have their roots in family. God lists the genealogy of family lines throughout the Old Testiment. They all represent multiplication!

I believe that we have entered a time of multiplication— even miraculous multiplication such as when Jesus fed the 5000 with a few fish and loaves (and had twelve baskets left over at the end). God is blessing all that you have offered or given to him as a sacrifice and it is about to multiply over and over.

The Spirit spoke to me at the end of September regarding October being a month that we would begin to see increase and multiplications. I asked him for confirmation of what I was seeing and within the first days of October two of my sons received unexpected raises and promotions at their jobs— not one son but two sons (which spoke to me as “multiple”). October is a threshold where we are crossing into a time of enlarging our tents, gaining land, homes, possessing nations (by dispossessing nations), gaining family members, expansion and seeing multiplied blessings coming upon all that pertains to you.

This is a season to not be afraid of offering the little that you have to the Lord. Your fish and loaf is about to be multiplied but it must first be offered. This is a season to possess lands and a time to not “NOT HOLD BACK!” This is a time to birth naturally and spiritually. Expansion is happening— lengthen your cords and stretch your tent pegs!

Lastly, I saw in the spirit— heavenly cargo ships, like the ones lined up and waiting in Los Angeles, filled with supplies and provisions coming to bring all that you need. As you put your trust in the Lord and wait upon him— he will supply all of your needs. There is no lack!

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38

Full Circle

Full Circle
Kathi Pelton

I was quite intrigued to hear Chuck Pierce release a word over our nation about coming to a “Full Circle” time (beginning) during this past week. In mid-July our family was in the process of moving cross country (from Virginia to Oregon). When we reached Columbia, Missouri to spend the night, I walked into the hotel room and on the wall was a photograph of a ferris wheel turning and I immediately heard the words, “Full circle is coming.”

The reason we had moved to the Washington DC region was because God had asked us to go there to pray for our nation and to stand with those who had been faithfully praying in governmental realms for many years. It was an assignment that was both sacrificial and beautiful all at the same time. In that moment we were returning to where we had begun and the Lord was declaring a “Full Circle” beginning.

But what does this saying, “Full Circle” mean? In this particular case it had many different meanings and messages for me personally but this is what I see for our nation.

When we set out on our two year assignment to be on the ground in Washington DC, the church was full of hope for what we were seeing spiritually and naturally. We sensed that we may be on the verge of overturning Roe vs Wade, our US embassy in Israel had been moved to Jerusalem, prayer and worship was encouraged and received in The White House, Christian rights were being upheld and our nation appeared to be experiencing a reformation. Quite honestly, I wondered why we were being sent since everything was going so well. The need for reinforcements didn’t appear crucial— little did we know what was coming.

Yet, when our assignment of living full time in the DC region was completed— hopes had been dashed, a pandemic had come and darkness had come upon our land. Therefore when I heard the word “full circle” I wondered why I felt such hope— for all that we had stood for and prayed for appeared lost.

I then felt as though the Lord said, “When you began the journey there was great hope in the hearts of my people. Now, in the midst of what looks like defeat, you will witness the fulfillment of many hopes and prayers that were offered to me. Hope will come full circle to the place of fulfillment.”

I cannot say what this will look like or how it can happen (or how long it will take)— except that it will be done by the hand of God. No man will be given credit for this season of full circle because it will be miraculous. What has been “shock and awe” to the people who walk in the fear of the Lord will not become “shock and awe” to the enemy’s camp. It will be a full circle turnaround.

I believe this is not only for our nation but for many individual lives as well. You will find yourself standing in a place or position that you stood once before but this time the outcome will be different— you are different and you will have victory. Hope deferred will become desires fulfilled during this full circle season of time.

The journey has been difficult and full of trials and testings but as you have yielded to God, his character in you has been developed and your “waiting for God” has been received as worship. The turnaround has begun. The reward for “those who wait upon him is coming.”

“For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.” Isaiah‬ ‭64:3-4‬ ‭

Chuck Pierce prophesied that October 18th would begin this season of full circle turnaround. We come into agreement with this prophecy and declare, “It has begun!” It is as if we got on a ferris wheel 🎡 and it has gone through the full cycle and we will get off where we began but everything will be different. We will be different, outcomes will be different and hopes will become realities.

The words from Isaiah 54 rush through my spirit like refreshing water,

““Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities. “Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. For the Lord has called you like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off, says your God. For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer.” (vs. 1-8…be sure to read the whole chapter)

Our brief moment had come full circle and redemption will meet us where we began— where our hopes began. Rejoice— a great “reboot” has begun!

Nothing Is Wasted

Nothing Has Been Wasted
Kathi Pelton

Our life stories have been filled with highs and lows, gains and losses, beauty and ashes, as well as joy and sorrows. In all of the stories that have colored the seasons of our lives, God wants you to know this one thing, “Nothing has been wasted.”

He is the Redeemer! The beautiful stories that have been written upon the pages of our lives have been powerfully enhanced by His touch and the painful stories that been written upon the pages of our lives have been powerfully redeemed by His loving touch. His faithfulness remains true and steadfast through it all.

Nothing has been wasted.

This week was one of those times that I experienced powerful redemption regarding a deep loss experienced many years ago. As time has gone by I have learned to rest and wait upon God to see His beauty to come forth, even from among the most painful ashes. In time, His beauty appears in the most unlikely of places and the most unexpected of ways. Though He was not the author of our pain and loss, He is the author of the beauty that comes forth from it.

“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

We can not escape the reality that there are seasons of pain and sorrow but we can embrace the truth and comfort that in the midst of those times we have been given hope that beauty will be restored. There is great comfort in knowing that in the midst of sorrows we are invited to enter into the beautiful chamber of His love to be refreshed and renewed in hope for tomorrow.

In times when this world shouts a resounding message of hopelessness through adverse circumstances, hatred and divisions, we know that Jesus can take what was meant for evil and turn it for good. Such as when He raised Lazarus from the dead (when every hope had gone into the grave with him) or when Jesus feed 5000 hungry people with only enough food for one small boy. We are seeing sickness, death, lack and need all around us and I believe we will once again see His power displayed in hopeless and impossible situations. He will resurrect, feed, fill and multiply until there are twelve baskets more than we began with. All of your losses, when placed in the faithful care of Jesus, are redeemed, restored and always multiplied beyond expectation.

As most of my readers know, our family has experienced natural fires and storms in years past. We’ve lost homes and lived through terrifying firestorms and a tornado that took many lives. Our past losses both prove and testify of the greatness of His restoration and ability to heal. Nothing has been wasted. Our past losses and pain can now be a present comfort to those who can’t see past the ashes that they are currently facing. Our loaf and fish, offered to the Lord, will be multiplied to feed and give hope to many. As you offer what you have in our hand to Jesus (even your stories and testimonies), He uses it to feed many. We have seen beauty come forth in our own journey and we can take the beautiful redemption of our story and plant those seeds of hope in many lives today.

Your story has nothing wasted when planted in the soil of our Redeemer. The testimony of Jesus in your life carries the spirit of prophesy to another’s life. Your overcoming will call forth their overcoming.

“To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3

It will all be beautiful in time! Whatever your story is…offer it to Him. Offer the ashes, offer the beauty, offer the mourning, offer the joy, offer the despair and offer the praise. What is offered to the Lord will be resurrected and multiplied more than you can ever imagine. Offer Him your story…He will use every part of it and nothing will be wasted. Let your life be poured out as an offering of worship— both the good and the hard— then watch what he does!

Lean Back— Let Go and Let God!

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was spending time in worship and one of my favorite songs came on— “Lean Back.” As it played I found myself leaning back into the loving arms of my Heavenly Father and as I did— every burden, every anxious thought, every urge to take control just washed away.
I was taken into a place of rest and peaceful joy in his presence that has not left me. I was brought into the present moment (rather than running ahead with my thoughts), as the Father held me close.

As this happened, I felt his comfort, compassion and his love for all
of his children in such a tangible way. I felt his invitation extended to each of you— take time to “lean back into the arms of your loving Father.” The song goes on to say, “Breathe deep and know that He is good— He’s a love like no other.”

It is time for you to breathe deep and take in all of his goodness and love— for he truly is a love like no other. He will refresh you, renew you, strengthen you and comfort you. He will also remove every anxious thought from you and replace it with a peace that guards your heart and mind.

It’s time to get still and take the time to lean back! Time in “Daddy’s lap” is always the best time. You are never too old or too mature to become like a child and rest in his love. He is inviting into his loving arms— it’s a love like no others!

Prayer Request


This week two members of our household tested positive for Covid. Jeffrey and I have not developed symptoms or been tested but we are asking for prayer because I am high risk (diabetic and I’ve had lung issues for many years). We are asking for protection and healing.

I (Kathi) have eye surgery on November 8th with post-op appointments in October. We deeply desire to not have to postpone this surgery. I was a competitive swimmer for many years growing up and due to sun glare exposure my eyes have been damaged. This has caused me to develop cataracts at a younger age than most. The surgeon will be removing the cataracts and replacing my left lens with one that will clear my stigmatism and improve my distance sight. It has become harder and harder for me to drive or see clearly. As a writer, this surgery is important and we do not want to delay it.

Last, we have two weeks of travel coming up (beginning October 27th) and we need wisdom about whether to cancel it or continue moving forward in faith that we will be well and not develop the virus. One of our trips is very important to us.

We so appreciate all of our friends and prayer partners that stand with us and agree in prayer with us. Our heart is to have all of my mailings be sent to encourage you and lift you up but we realize that there are times that we need to ask for prayer. This is one of those times.

Lastly, we have a thousand dollar co-pay on this particular eye surgery due to the new lens they are putting in. If you would like to help us with this unexpected cost we would be very grateful. You can use the links below to give (add a note: EYES).

We pray that this mailing finds you and your loved ones doing well. Please feel free to let us know how we can be praying for you. We will keep you updated regarding these situations.

With Love, Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

Be Blameless

By Kathi Pelton

To be “blameless” means to be innocent of wrongdoing. We know that we are covered and washed in the blood of Jesus (by grace) from all of our wrongdoings but we also desire to live a life of righteousness and walk in a standard of holiness all of the days of our lives.

Psalm 37:18-19 says,
“The Lord knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine they have abundance.”
Since blame and wrongdoing has been removed from our lives, we now have the honor of standing before him as “blameless.” Yet, some use this “grace and forgiveness” as a license to act in ways that compromise his standards— believing that grace gives permission to “act unbecomingly” or compromise his ways and instructions.

“Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!” Romans 6:15

Though ALL have fallen short of his glorious standard (Romans 3:23), we do not want to deliberately fall short. His Word is to be our standard as his character and integrity is formed in us. Our lives are to bring glory, honor and praise to him in all that we do and who we are. We are called to yield until we see his image become one with us.

There is a great need for natural and spiritual parents to spend time on our knees praying for our children and our children’s children. The spirit of rebellion and deception is infiltrating every aspect of society from education to media— (from physical ed to the video games they play). Rules alone will not protect our youth from compromise and deception— that leads to rebellion. We must get this wisdom from the Lord and we must pray for them like never before…and, we must do our best to walk blameless before them in honor and integrity.

The reward for those who are called “blameless” by the Lord is honor, abundance and a righteous heritage.

“God, we ask that we will be found blameless before you. We thank you for your forgiveness and grace that has washed us from all sin and defilement. Reveal to us your ways and strengthen us to walk in a life of uncompromising holiness and honor before you. Though we still fall short, may we never use grace as a license to fall short. Create in us clean hearts and clean hands— and show us any area or way in us that dishonors you or defiles our hearts. We ask that you would protect our children from the spirit of rebellion and deception that seeks to devour them. Keep them in the refuge of your care and teach them your ways. May they be found blameless before you all of their days.” Amen
