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…

Are the ‘WHAT IF’s’ Holding You Back…


  If our hope – our trust – is in the Lord, then what are we waiting for? Why do we allow the “what if’s” to defeat us before we give our “I’m going to trust in you, Lord” a chance to birth life! How long are we going to hold back? Must we continue…

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…

Coming out . . .


“God does not promise us a path free of pain; rather, God promises to walk that path with us. So I encourage you to journal your feelings. Talk them through with a friend. Express the emotions in prayer to God, either through writing or out loud. Read the Psalms and pray the words of lament.” ~ Ruth Everhart

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…

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…

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’ &…

Are We Sleepwalking? Part 3


Are We Sleepwalking? PART THREE When we are asleep we allow our souls to rule our emotions, to control our words, and our actions speak loud and clear what is deep on the inside of us that is not of God’s nature.  Our perspective rings true of something that is desolate, dry, and withering away….
