Hello 2018!


POSITIVE CHANGE – watch your world open and how you experience the rush of being alive.

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…

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…

Life Happens & It Stinks!


Life Happens & It Stinks ~ April 2016 Issue 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…

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…

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]…

What defines you . . .


Something I have learned over the years and want to share with those who are having a hard time grasping who they are in Christ. Circumstances, past experiences do NOT define who you are they only strengthen your character & relationship with Christ – that is if you run to Christ in the ‘good’ &…

You were made for more ~


Woke up this morning to hear my 6-year-old say,“Mommy, you know . . . dreams can be SCARY!” How true is that! Yes, baby, dreams can be scary if we look at them through the eyeglass of fear and doubt.  When we allow our thoughts to flow freely without reflecting them upon the promises of…

Deep Roots


Fear makes people to do some strange things … unthinkable things causing cycles of sin that are so deep rooted that only the love of God expressed can bring repentance, forgiveness, and freedom. Show some love today and see if you’re not used as God’s vessel for someone’s freedom. All Brake 5 Blogs and written…
