Identity ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 23/365, Week 4/52

Power ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 14/365, Week 2/52


Who has power over you? If you allow someone to control you through your past, secrets, offenses, anger, resentment, un-forgiveness, etc., you have given them the power over you and your purpose for your life. These are types of people who will drain you, suck the life out of you, disrespect your boundaries and smile…

SHOTGUN, I CALL SHOTGUN!!!!! My kids, even today at age 14 and 12, override my 6-year-old by constantly calling ‘SHOTGUN’, every time it’s time to roll.  She does not have a clue what it means or how to be the one who makes the first call. (sigh) The battle is on as soon as I…

Place Value . . .


What we value is what we love and assign importance to.  More than we intend to admit we value the approval of man more than the approval of God –   John 12:43 AMP “For they loved the approval and the praise and the glory that come from men (instead of and) more than the glory…
