Holy Spirit Living . . .


You know, if anyone would have told me years ago what I would have to go through to be where I am today I would have probably slapped them. “Nope. Not me, not going to happen. I’m going to do things this way. I’m going to live this way. I’ll make sure my children do…

He knew you before all this . . .


More than 2,000 years ago someone was thinking of me, fighting for my life, fighting for my bloodline. Fighting for my health, my finances . . . fighting for my destiny.  Christ thought of me even then – before my heartbeat sounded, before my flesh began, before the atmosphere of this world would break with…

There’s Got to be MORE…


I wrote the post below 5 years ago and I have to say I am still at that place in my relationship with Christ, my Savior wanting more.  He is never dull or boring.  He is forever the same.  However, I have yet to discover all that there is to know about Him.  This journey…

How to give your 2017 a fresh start


It’s a New Year, a New YOU! I know you will hear this all day today, every day this week. . . BUT the reality is – it is true! Today is the first day to make a change. If you are fed up with how you feel inside, outside, …. whatever …. ALL SIDES!!…

The List . . .


I’m not into New Year Resolutions – done that – it does not work . . . but what does work for me is giving God the first 40 days of each year. Instead of making a New Year’s resolution that you will probably break within the first two weeks, make a covenant with God…

How are you ending 2016?


Philippians 2:14 “Do all things without grumbling and fault finding and complaining (against God) and questioning and doubting among yourselves.” Shine with the LIGHT of Christ by speaking words that birth LIFE and JOY. Watch your space be invaded with peace and God’s wisdom for every situation. Watch as your thoughts and behaviors are transformed….

What I Believe is What I do


One can be saved but when an individual is NOT in full pursuit after Christ the process of renewing the mind does not happen. Instead, the mind is filled with the things of this world and one loses sight of Godly TRUTH. The renewing of our minds on a daily basis is vital in order…

Power over Rejection . . .


The Power We Have Over Rejection We all have felt rejection at some point in our lives and if not well we are not being very truthful now are we? Rejection is that feeling we get when we are faced with a prospect of promise or chance of hope, but then out of nowhere an…

Obedience Brings Joy


As our Sunday evening comes to a close I want to leave each of you with some encouraging words for your week ahead. Last Friday, I had the opportunity arise to be obedient in a divine appointment. God’s timing was perfect but His set up for this DA to take place began on Wednesday. He…

No More Good Intentions


“It’s that simple and I’m no longer making New Year resolutions with such grand good intentions that I know I can never keep.”

Prepare for Worship . . .


Worship is not a performance.  It is a demonstration of the love towards an ever faithful, forgiving, loving, LIVING God. One must make sure that their motivation is pure before picking up the mic, the guitar, a paintbrush, putting on the dance shoes, sitting down before the drums, or placing their hands on the piano. God…

Living Dangerously


How many reasons will give yourself for not stepping out, for not conquering your fears? How many excuses will you give God for not believing, not taking action as a weapon in this spiritual battle we daily fight?

Heart of Worship


The Vine Brake 5’s Devotional Heart of Worship by Shelley Roth We were created by Love for the purpose to love. It is so very simple but easily forgotten, when we are caught up in our own lives. The one thing the Lord desires is that we would love Him with all of our heart.[1]…
