“Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my [...]

I love November.
This is the season of thankfulness. This is the time of year when we set our hearts on remembering the goodness in our lives; a time of recalling God’s faithfulness [...]

let go

In the cold, damp, dreary cell, after the dinner hour had passed and the quiet of evening slowly and silently settled in, I wonder – as Joseph processed the happenings of the day – what thoughts and feelings, emotions and curiosities wandered through his mind as the sun sank its way into the night.

“Too much” goes two ways.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22,23
Who are you becoming?
The answer to this question can be found in revealing where you have been abiding.
Underneath the surface of every living thing are roots tied to something, connecting [...]

There is no person on this planet, no authority, no government, no circumstance bearing its weight upon you that can keep God from bringing your life calling to its destiny.
God’s plan for you will be accomplished.
The enemy might try to hijack it, but God wins. All.the.time.
One of my favorite statements made by Jesus in the [...]
