What doesn’t kill me . . . makes me?


Relationships come and go . . . We’ve heard this said so many times and there is truth in it.  However, how many of those relationships were ended because our flesh was offended in a way that brought in a wall of unforgiveness? Being a human is tough enough, being a woman seems to be…

Honoring my Spiritual Father


Today I want to honor and celebrate the life of a man who has inspired many to push themselves to be all that they are destined to become.  Our Pastor, Lindell Ballenger of Jubilee Int’l Ministries of Pensacola, Florida went home to Jesus this Pentecost Sunday morning.  www.jubileeintl.org Many of us have been forever changed…

Time . . . is short


As I was drifting off to sleep last night I began to hear a ticking sound . . . it was loud and clear . . . tick . . . toc  . . . repeatedly getting louder.  I drifted into sleep and I found myself along a shore overlooking the open vastness of sky…

SHOTGUN, I CALL SHOTGUN!!!!!


The battle is on as soon as I say, “It’s time to roll!” and my kid giants screaming stampede me before I make it out the front door, “I call SHOTGUN!” Really?  Are you serious? Ugh the joys of being a mom! (I love it) The “riding shotgun battle” got me to thinking about who do I have,…

You Must Know . . .


You Must Know . . . Your destiny is greater than your current mistakes, present chaotic mess, or habitual sin.  God’s love reaches down into the deepest part of your heart and pulls out the jewel of a person He has created you to be.  When a person doesn’t believe they are worthy of love they…

Not a rewarding practice . . .


Be Brave ~ Live Dangerously ~ Expecting always for God to turn things around for His way not ours . . . letting go trusting Him in all things . . . walking in obedience and full of faith . . . as an arrow flies may our spirits soar and hit the mark in…

When you’ve had enough . . . .


“When you’ve had enough . . . you’ll know.  How . . . because your desire for inner healing will be stronger than your desire (craving) for that addictive sin, that oh so familiar sin, that one that keeps knocking on your mind’s doorstep, the one that is holding you in bondage.  And that my…

Bravery comes at a cost . . .


What’s holding you back from facing your fears? What keeps you from experiencing true freedom? Are you tired of living in a fog, a bubble of unreality when it comes to God’s presence? Are you afraid of facing the truth of who God has called you to be? Where is your courage your Faith? Where…

They Are Just Words . . . .


How often do we allow words to direct our life? All the time . . . every day . . . every second . . . every waking moment Either words we have spoken or those spoken by others – is not the matter – it is in what we grab a hold of and…

Thanksgiving . . . An Everyday Occurrence


Wow! It’s Thanksgiving already . . . seems like we were just here . . . I can say that giving thanks is an everyday attitude that I carry. So, just one day is not enough to share all the things that my heart holds thankful. However, for this special day, Thanksgiving ~ I am…

Peace that transcends all understanding . . .


How??? Everyone is so quick to give us a cliché of terms quoted from the Good Book.  Most of us know it’s true and order our lives after God’s leading trusting in Him in all things.  However, those who do not walk in that foundation of trust tend to be skeptic of God’s peace let…

Keep on Walking . . . .


“When you are at a place where you’ve come out of being weak and are allowing God to work on the inside of you – to heal all the brokenness – it is extremely important to guard your heart, spirit, and soul from the enemy’s schemes of temptation.  Why?  Because the weak moments will come…

The ‘Tough Mudder’ of Marriage . . .


A word of encouragement to married couples – Do not . . . do not allow the enemy to come in to steal and destroy the destiny that has been spoken over your marriage.  Especially, couples that strongly believe that their marriage is called of God that it was not something by chance. Even just…
