Let’s start with the unfortunately required caveats. I am not a bigot on any level. I don’t hate anybody but the devil. I’m not homophobic. If I’m phobic...

BOYCE: Hi I’m Boyce!
DELLA: And I’m Della, and we are Conversations With The Redeemed back again after a pretty long break. Its summer and Boyce and I have been gardening…for real. For the last month and a half we have been picking, canning and jellying fruits and veggies from our back yard garden. Its hard work but we thoroughly enjoy it…and we have lots of nice staples to pull out and enjoy eating over the winter months. Yummy, yummy!
We are back with our series, Fruits From The Secret Garden! We have so enjoyed sharing these thoughts and feelings the Lord has laid on our hearts with all of you. But before we begin again, Boyce, let’s ask the Lord to cover our conversation and all our friends who have joined us with His supernatural anointed favor and covering.
Follow the Pain, Unpack the Baggage!
Hi, I’m Boyce, and this is “bloggin’ with the Redeemed”, We’re coming to you from our home along Alligator Branch, in beautiful South Carolina!
Hi, I’m Della and Boyce would you like to bless us, our readers, and our conversation today with a prayer?
Boyce: Father, we come to you again today asking you to touch all our readers, and help us with our revealing of the things you want us to share with all our readers. We pray that You will give the understanding they need to touch their hearts, heal their wounds, and strengthen their faith in You. Amen.
Della: Well, we are on Part 3 of our series, Fruits of the Secret Garden. This series of conversations hangs on two scriptures: Galatians 5:22-23 and Matthew 6:6.
Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Matthew 6:6 (KJV) 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Hi, I’m Boyce, and this is “bloggin’ with the Redeemed”, our newest outlet for CWTR. We’re coming to you from our home along Alligator Branch, in beautiful Horry County, in eastern South Carolina, home of the beautiful Grand Strand beaches!
Hi, I’m Della and we always open our conversation with a prayer. Boyce would you like to bless us and our readers with a prayer this morning?
Boyce: My the Lord bless us and keep us and open to us many windows of heaven and earth that we may establish ourselves to be the servants God would have us to be. In Jesus name, Amen.
Della: Well, in our last conversation we started something new. The Lord gave us a series to talk about. He gave me this a few weeks ago when I had a migraine and stayed all day in my prayer closet for Him to heal me. He began to show me and teach me about “Fruits of the Secret Garden” and biblical persons whose prayer He answered and why! This series of conversations will hang on these two scriptures: Galatians 5:22-23 and Matthew 6:6.
"Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Fruits Of The Secret Garden is going to be a series of conversations concerning these two scriptures: Galatians 5:22-23 and Matthew 6:6.
This starts a sermon series on signs. But don't get ahead of yourself, they might not all be what you think...

This week's theme music: Sweetly Broken by Jeremy Riddle
Luke 12:34 (KJV) 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Hello everyone! We are Conversations With The Redeemed! We are coming to you from our home along Alligator Branch!
Thanks so much for joining our conversation today!
I’m Della! And Boyce isn’t with the conversation today. He is gardening! He says, hello and sends his best wishes to you and his prayers up for you. He’ll be back next time.
So it’s just me and you guys today and our conversation is about the things that break our hearts. I’d like to start with a prayer: “Father God, as I share your love today I pray that each person listening will receive a blessings, healing, a word of knowledge or at least some part of the treasure that is You, our God, our savior Jesus. Bless each person, their home, their family and the work of their hands. In Jesus name, Amen.
As I walked through the valley of the shadow of death… I almost went to hell…
Psalms 23:4-6 (KJV)
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Conversations With The Redeemed today. We hope you are blessed as you join in. We’re coming to you today from our home on Alligator Branch. I’m Boyce!
And I’m Della! Before we get into what God has placed in our hearts today to share with you we always like to open with a prayer and invite the Lord into our conversation.
(Prayer): Lord, thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of sharing our lives and your truths with people today. We pray that you bless the minds, hearts and lives of every person who stops by and spends a little of their precious time with us here today. Bless them with revelation, strength and healing from your precious spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.
Today we have a very special episode of CWTR. Previously I shared my testimony of dying one night for a few moments and how God healed me when I saw Jesus. Today Boyce is sharing with you the day he walked through his “valley of the shadow of death” and how God redeemed him from death, the grave and hell.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 (KJV)
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
Is Christ coming back soon?
Boyce: Hello friends! We are Conversations With The Redeemed, coming to you in our new voice on conwayjournal.com! We welcome all of you today and pray God’s blessing over you as you join our conversation.
Della: I pray that the love of God dwell deeply in your hearts, homes and lives today, for your peace, prosperity and provision as we come together to share God’s love with you through His words and the thoughts of our hearts. Amen.
We hope what God has pressed into our hearts today blesses you and helps to grow your faith in God as it did ours.

THAT NIGHT WHEN DELLA DIED—“Stop! What did you say…exactly?”
John 11:25-26 (KJV)
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Hello, we are Conversations With The Redeemed coming to you today in our new blog/devotion from our home here behind Alligator Branch in beautiful South Carolina. I’m Boyce.
And I’m Della. We and our hosts, conwayjournal.com and rivertownradio.com are all going through a transition right now, so our voice podcast is on hold for awhile. But we do hope to have it back soon. If you haven’t heard all of our podcasts please go into our archives and choose one. You will find a variety of topics that I’m sure you will enjoy and grow closer to the Lord with, as we did as we talked and shared. And, please feel free to share our page with your family and friends and Facebook friends too. Help us share the love of Christ Jesus!
Everybody here at Conversations with the Redeemed would like to wish all of you a awesomely blessed Christmas and an amazing New Year. It’s been a great year for us, doing the show and getting to bring our conversations to you each week via the journal.
We hope that during you celebrating you and your family takes time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ and the gift that God gave us all so long ago.
As the days have went by since the CT shooting, we have been daily praying for all the families that have been touched by this act of senseless violence.
We know no words expressed could heal the hearts and minds of those hurting and grieving right now. But if we could speak to them, we would say that you will not be forgotten in the coming days, as we will continue to pray for your families, the school, children and staff.
From our hearts,
Boyce and Della Strickland
Conversations With The Redeemed
1 John 4:9 (KJV)
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Hello, we are Conversations With The Redeemed coming to you today in a new form!
And I’m Della, and as you can see we are trying a new thing here at Conversations. But it’s not really a new thing, but an old thing because people have been writing devotionals of love and encouragement since Christ Jesus came in the flesh. The apostles Paul, Peter, John, and many others have been writing about Jesus since he arose from the dead.
Since it is the Christmas season, we are going to write from our hearts about the birth of our savior. John wrote it best when he said that God demonstrated his love by allowing His son to be born into this lost and dying world. We think it was a new thing, Boyce, but it really was an old thing because prophecy had been written about his birth, life and death for thousands of years. Right?
Della: In 33 ½ years Jesus fulfilled over 300 prophecies, starting with his immaculate conception and his birth in Bethlehem. And he has more prophecies to fulfill when he comes back as king of kings and lord of lords with all power.
This week Boyce and Della are talking about the Word and even get the producer to join in the fun.
At CWTR we know that the holiday season is a hugely busy time and we want to thank you for taking the time to listen in!
If you'd like to be kept updated on CWTR, when new episodes post, what Della and Boyce are doing, and much more, "Like" the Conversations With The Redeemed page on Facebook and get in on all the "goings on" !
On this special Healing Monday episode of CWTR, Della and Boyce sit down with Chiropractor, Dr. Michael Cole of Vivatech Disc Rehabilitation.
Listen in as Della and Boyce talk with Dr.Cole, a chiropractor and nutritionist with over 50 years of experience, about nutrition, faith, and more!
2012 has been one long year for most people. With the election, hurricanes, and the continuous fiscal crisis our Nation is it can feel like we’ve all been raked over the coals and then some. Then you throw holidays in the mix and you’ve got people family issues, and money issues, and the kids are getting sick and having to stay home from school and you get to the point where you would just like to run and hide under your covers until January.
I know the feeling. You’ll be already exhausted and then circumstances will take another sharp turn suddenly everything is coming down to the wire and you feel like your body and your heart is gonna give out at any second. Everyday life is hard, but everyday life during the Christmas season and New Year’s is unreal.
I think the devil does this on purpose. He doesn’t like the fact that we are taking time to be thankful or celebrating Jesus’s birth. He hates all the love and the togetherness that happens over the holidays too. It’s the last thing he needs is a bunch of people getting together and talking about Jesus and feeling all charitable and experiencing miracles.
So he goes into over-drive. Attacking us left and right, hitting where it hurts, like our health, our finances, and our families. He will do his best to stir up trouble wherever he can find an open crack of opportunity. He will send strife, and exhaustion, and rough circumstances to try and blow us over and his biggest joy is to see us straining under pressure.
