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…

Gift of Love


“A gift should not be given with stipulations. Otherwise, it truly has not been given but bondage has been exchanged for trust. Learn to freely give and to freely receive – such love is unconditional.” ~ Jennifer Goodson 2008-2014 © Copyright.

Keep on Walking . . . .

I Don’t Want It Any More . . . .


“Forgiveness is beautiful. Giving up the right to hold onto something that was a wrong . . . allowing yourself to let it all go . . . Forgiveness is a breath of fresh air, a new life, a new mind, a new heart. Forgiveness opens the door for God’s love to consume, healing to…

Walking the Tightrope . . . .

The War on Family . . .


A war rages from centuries past, against the value of marriage and family.  This war is in our midst every day, right in front of our eyes . . . In a garden, inhabited by one-man one woman, it began. When the enemy of our souls turned husband and wife against one another with his…

LIFE or DEATH ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 26/365, Week 4/52


Words Reflect Your Heart Out of your mouth your heart speaks . . . Relationships that keep us from moving forward in productivity may need reevaluation.  It is one thing to support another when they are in and out of struggles.  However, it is another when the person is constantly dwelling in a place of…
