Can we talk? 

As I sit and pen my thoughts this morning, I am reminded of Jesus’s experience in the Garden of Gethsemane.  It was at that place He had to make one of the toughest decisions in His life. Should He go forward to the cross, knowing that this was what He was destined to do? Or…

Its 2016, Now What?

Welcome to the New Year. What will you do differently this year? Will this year be another year of excuses or results for you? Will you allow fear to hold you captive or will you go forward in faith? The decision is all yours! Place fear on the backburner and DO LIFE BIG in 2016….

Stay The Course

You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God. You’re blessed when you follow his directions, doing your best to find him. That’s right—you don’t go off on your own; you walk straight along the road he set. You, God, prescribed the right way to live; now you expect…

Keep Your Eyes Open..

Proverbs 16:3 (AMP), Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed. This has become one of my go-to-scriptures when I am feeling overwhelmed. It helps me to refocus so that…

Take Rest..

God has not overlooked you. He is still at work making you and me into the vessels He desires us to be. Release the weight of the vision to Him, the anxiety and the “how tos” of accomplishing it all. Trust Him to lead you to His expected end. Take rest in Him as you…

Obedience Is Key

“If you love me, obey me; John 14:15 (TLB) It is essential that we consult and obey God in this season of our lives. Our next steps hinge upon His Word, His instructions.  Too often, we fail to consult God with our plans. When we do consult Him we fail at following His instructions totally….

Trust the Process

We can make our plans,but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 (NLT) We all reach a place in our lives wherein we don’t always understand exactly what the Lord is doing next. Nothing looks familiar. Everything begins to change, but in the midst of it all, God remains the same. In these times of…

It’s Not Over…

Keep your head up! It is not over yet. Trust in the Lord and do good.  Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.  4 Take delight in the Lord,   and he will give you your heart’s desires.  5 Commit everything you do to the Lord.  Trust him, and he will help you. Psalm 37:3-5 (NLT) I speak…

Stop! Look! Listen!

Isaiah 30:21 (AMP)..And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left. “I’ve noticed that so often in life, when we encounter a holding pattern, the natural reaction is one of frustration for having…
