Hi, I'm Diana Furr!

Six years ago, I entered the Valley of Cancer. Now cancer-free (!), I am keenly aware that cancer of a different kind is attacking one of the liberties I cherish most in America -- Religious Liberty. Who will win this battle? People of faith, empowered with knowledge, practical strategies, and the courage to stand. This blog will become your "go to" place for Learning and Leverage, especially for leaders in business -- the next great mission field for Christ.

Lord of All Warmth

Sometimes communing with You feels like an uphill battle.  Like wherever You are is "above" or "ahead of" wherever I am, with the Enemy holding me down or back.  Sometimes I stop to rest amid the ongoing resistance.  Maybe I even think I am stopping to "smell the flowers."  But before long, I realize I'm...

Almighty Creator of All Life,

By Your Amazing Grace, we can find joy -- and meaning -- everywhere we look.  And I mean, everywhere! Like in my own yard.  In the "game" I have been playing for the last few days. Raccoons / Squirrels = 5.  Me = 1.  That's the latest score, at least so far.  The playing field is our side...

Father of Failproof Awe!

What is one fail-proof formula for AWE? Your Relentless Loving Kindness PLUS Your Miraculous and Perfectly-timed Orchestration of Our Steps.  This formula works every time. I recently asked a dear friend for some feedback.  I know You are preparing me to speak with more frequency to groups of women in this next "season" of service to You.  I sent my friend...

God Who is So Close…

Closer than my next breath. "Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  (Matthew 28:20b) Even when I do not live up to all I desire to be and do for You. "For the Lord will not reject His people; He will never forsake His inheritance."  (Psalm 94:14) You are Almighty God -- Creator of the...

Running on Fumes

I come to You, Lord, to fill my "tank" this morning.  I am running on empty. Regular grade "fuel" will not do.  Medium grade is not up to the task. I need Ultimate High Test.  I need YOU. I come on my knees because that's the best position from which I can open my tank.  I...

Egg-statically Yours!

You blessed me today through a call with some precious brothers and sisters in Christ.  The conversation turned to a topic of Deep Truth.  The topic was Authenticity.  One person on the call relayed the news that she had just acquired a new client -- a person who had been following her website posts for...

Princess Pollyanna!

Am I a "Pollyanna," Abba... as some have accused me of being? "Pollyanna:  An excessively or blindly optimistic person.  Someone who is unreasonably or illogically optimistic." (Dictionary.com) Some might say, "Yep!  That's Diana to the core!"  But I would argue otherwise.  More importantly... so would You, Abba!  Because I am what I am because of You!...

Treasuring My Tangles

My fishing line was hopelessly tangled. We headed out early this morning, in the crisp air and under a socked-in grey sky, to wade fish the nearby Robinson River.  We tried one spot with no success, then headed to a second spot downstream.  No sooner did the hook hit the water, a huge and beautiful...

Lord of Everything Right

The Art of Being Wrong. Two days ago, we thought there was enough water in the Robinson River for a leisurely canoe ride.  Wrong.  Yesterday, we thought an 8.4-mile bike ride would work out the soreness in our leg muscles from "horsing" our canoe through the many places we had become grounded.  Wrong again. I spent...

Lord Who Parts the Waters

Were You laughing as hard yesterday as we were, Abba?  In light of the head-shaking, mind-boggling, body-challenging difficulties we were encountering in our Once-in-a-Decade Adventure? Life at the margin.  That's where we were yesterday. "Margin:  a bare minimum below which or an extreme limit beyond which something becomes impossible or is no longer desirable."  (Merriam-Webster Online...
