“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:22) Jesus was serious Jesus was not kidding with us was he? Where there are people there will be problems. It is in the air we breathe. See, satan is the ruler of the air. He is constantly roaming to see who he can devour. He will find the weaker subjects who are double minded being tossed by the sea. He brings confusion attempting to lead you into his sticky web. Once there our struggle becomes worse. Many people give up. May you not […]
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

It is up to us to turn our attitude around. The culprit is anxiety. We find ourselves anxious. I find myself anxious in traffic, with deadlines, and with messes in the house. […]
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love. (Psalm 33:18) The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts.” (Exodus 31:1-4) Motivating Monday It is Motivating Monday! What better way to be motivated than to know what God is willing to do for one, He will also do for you! God shows no favoritism. As people having free choice, we have to decide who we are going to favor. Today is the last Monday in January. […]

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love and of self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:6,7 NIV) Fan into flames the gift of God! How do these words make you feel? Guess what?

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have.
