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.

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…

Stress vs. Presence


It seems as of late more bad than good days have rolled in the front door and I can’t seem to get the back door opened fast enough. BUT as they say, ‘life happens’ and the marathon continues. Most days nothing that was planned was done and the things that were done were things that…

Are We Sleepwalking? (Part 1)


Are We Sleepwalking?  PART ONE As a dream which seems real . . . Everything that was done that day, thoughts, words said you can’t remember . . . It is almost like driving to a familiar destination and after you’ve arrived, you can’t remember the drive there.  Sometimes it may feel like we are…
