It Is Time To Move Forward

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of…

Start Now!

Hard work brings prosperity; playing around brings poverty. Proverbs 28:19 TLB It takes discipline and focus to move from where you are to where you need to go. Let go of the false ideologies that you will get there some day and begin actively applying what you know! Father, grant us the grace to do…

Transformation Requires Change

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into…

No Longer I, But Christ

What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I…

It’s On The Way

And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up. Galatians 6:9 (TLB) I know it is difficult to keep believing God when you can not see what He is doing.  You have been praying,…

Just Imagine…

It takes plenty of courage to stay on track when everything around you is saying give up. Don’t be the one to sabotage your own breakthrough! And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. …

You are not a quitter..

  You are not a quitter! Defy the odds and keep it moving! I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Ephesians 3:16 (NLT) Grace and Peace be upon you today, Mary

Refuse to Settle

I know things may not be going your way right now, but that is no reason to give up and lose hope. Not at all! Now is the time to dig in and find the champion that lies on the inside of you. Now is the time to push harder and discover the inner strength…

Just Ask

And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. 15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in…
