In The Vine with Vicky and Chuck

Hi Family! We love you and thank you for joining us in The Vine. We are making some changes to how we stay connected - scroll to the bottom for all the details - but first - you are receiving this email because you signed up on our website to subscribe to this monthly newsletter or you previously joined as a website member.

Lord, You are Holy! Holy! Holy God!!! In Jesus' wonderful and mighty Name we come to you with praise for ALL that You are! You are our PROVIDER! You are more than able to take care of utility bills and phone bills and empty pantries. You have more tires and cars and houses and groceries and medicines and gifts and blessings and everything else than we could possibly ever need or use - more than we can even imagine!

You are ALL-POWERFUL, our beautiful Omnipotent Father! You are ALL-KNOWING, our glorious Omniscient Creator! You are ALL IN ALL...ALL-IN-AND-THROUGH-AND-OVER-AND-UNDER-AND-AROUND, our Extravagant Omnipresent King! Hallelujah to the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world! Glory to the King of kings and Lord of lords!!! Glory! Glory! Glory to You, MOST HIGH GOD! You reign above the heavens; You rule from on high! Rule and reign in OUR hearts today!


Most of the words in the Old Testament that are translated for JOY in Hebrew mean gladness, joy, mirth, rejoicing etc...

Nehemiah 8:10 reads, “Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the 'JOY' of the LORD is your strength.”

That word joy there is Strong's Hebrew H2304, Chedvah. It has such a deeper meaning. It's the only time this word is used in the Bible. It comes from a primitive root (H2302) meaning 'make glad, rejoice and 'Be Joined'

Being 'joined' to the Lord is our strength and it brings us joy, gladness, cheerfulness etc...

It's that inward knowing that we are joined to Him that gives us joy and strength. It also gives us peace and comfort when we are going through hard times. He is in us and we are in Him. Joined, connected and victorious!

When we are hurting it's hard to feel cheerful and glad but being connected to Him assures us that everything's going to be all right. Yes, it's gonna be all right.

The Wonder Of It All by Chuck Adkins


Peter was a fisherman by profession. His whole life had revolved around the sea and the weather. There is no-one more aware of storms and the dangers that they present than a commercial fisherman. He also well knew how easily a person can drown and the extreme danger of being in the water while a storm is raging and no boat close by to rescue a drowning person. Gravity will always have its way. The other fishermen left in the boat watching would have realized the import of what Peter was doing, possibly horrified at his impulsive decision!

Peter stepped out onto the water trusting completely in WHO JESUS WAS - EMMANUEL (God With Us), and that NOTHING was impossible to God, EVEN rolling back the natural laws that would have Peter drawn into the depths of the sea! His faith in the God of the IMPOSSIBLE motivated him to DO the impossible, walking on the surface of the sea that so eagerly sought to draw him down into its hostile and deadly depths, His eyes unwavering on Jesus' outstretched hand beckoning him to "Come!"


We continue to praise God for Vicky's health continuing to be restored day by day! Praising Him for the refining that we all as the Body of Christ have been going through. A time set apart by Him for eyes to be fully open and ears to hear what He is speaking to His Bride and hearts turning toward Him.

We are united in specifically praying for those living in the Ukraine, Russia, China & Taiwan. But we know that all nations are feeling the birth pangs. May more people accept the Salvation that comes only in Yeshua/Jesus.

If you have prayer requests - please continue to email them to us at We will share with the prayer team and join with you in seeking the face of God and praying in agreement for His will.


We have made quite a few changes to the online ministry in the last couple of weeks. In order to connect in the most productive way possible - we have broadened how we connect. We have had numerous problems with Wix, our website platform, regarding Site Membership. As this issue is ongoing - we have prayerfully decided to temporarily disable site membership. To fill that gap we are now on additional social media platforms.
