Letting Go!

Many of us have heard the saying, “Let Go and Let God,” yet this is usually extremely difficult for most. Understanding it’s not that most don’t wish to trust God, we are just unsure what will take place if we let go. It’s like if and you let go, you will fall and crumble. What many of us don’t seem to realize is by constantly hanging on, we are falling and crumbling. The very thing we don’t wish to [...]

IT’S NOT FINISHED, WHEN GOD IS IN IT!

It’s always darkest before the dawn is a saying that many of us have heard but never paused for a moment to consider what that means.  Life will present its set of challenges, whether it is personal, financial and/or physical, a test will come. The thing that separates individuals is how they handle those challenges when they occur.  Do you deal with them head on by struggling to fix everything yourself? Do you stress out and panic? Do you hold on to things and individuals [...]

WHO ARE YOU PLEASING?

10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. Gal 1:10 Many of us move through life living to please others but, this is not a trait we picked up when we became older. If you pause and glance back over your way of life, you will recognize this started at childhood. Pleasing Parents – Doing what they [...]

HOW LONG IS IT TAKING YOU?

If you are anything like I was, it’s taking longer than it needs to be. In the Book of Numbers in the Old Testament of the Bible, Chapter 11, Moses gives us an example of what we can do when we’re under stress. Talk about pressure, he was leading the Israelites through the wilderness on what should have been an eleven day trip and instead ended up taking forty years! This prompted me to take a look at my own life [...]

THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW

(Now Run) Happy New Year Everyone! Thank God for allowing us to see a new year. Yes, I’ve heard how 2016 has taken its toll on a lot of people and how they were happy to see it go. I looked at 2016 as a year of purging (to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable; cleanse; purify), as well as birthing (the act or process of bearing or bringing forth), and entered 2017 with great expectations. This is a new year, and I pray you entered [...]

THE HEALING PROCESS

Healing from pain is something that we all will go through at some point in our life. Whether the pain comes from something physical or emotional, we still must go through a process for the healing to be done completely. This often brings us to some of the most uncomfortable places and positions in our lives because if you are like many, you want the process of healing to hurry up so that you no longer are feeling the [...]

ARE YOU A CHEATER?

What a question for someone to ask or even to be labeled as. Often when we think about cheating or calling someone a cheater, we relate it to a person who has been or is being unfaithful to someone. Cheaters often try to hide what they are doing for fear of getting caught. Yet, they will often continue this behavior because of self-gratification or for whatever pleasure the flesh may be receiving at that time. A cheater also withholds [...]

LIVING PASS YOUR PAST MISTAKES

There was a time when I was in bondage to my past and what others thought of me. I would allow my past mistakes to constantly be used to define me, although that person was no longer me. Then one day during my crying out to God, He revealed to me that I was not who others wanted to keep labeling me as, and that I was no longer bound to my past. (2 Corinthians 5:17, NLT This means that [...]

REMOVING THE MASK

How are you? How are you feeling? How is everything? How’s the family? These are some of the most common questions that we are asked every day, and most of the time for many of us when answering these questions, we are answering them while wearing a “mask” (a covering, worn as a disguise). Sadly, this is even more prevalent in the church. Somehow, we have gotten to a place where we are living day-to-day in the comfortability of wearing [...]

THE COMFORTER

Do you need comfort right now? Perhaps you have had or are currently dealing with some life circumstances that have caused hurt that you’ve never experienced before and you don’t know where to turn. Your comforter, God, is present.  He is called “The Comforter” and He gives peace and healing to hurting hearts the moment we believe and receive, He is there. (2Corth. 1-3). I don’t know about you, but there is not a day that goes by that I [...]
