What Hopeless Situation Are You Facing Today?

hopeless

Hope is a precious and rare treasure in the world today. It seems people are living without hope in so many ways. The darkness of this world has impacted our belief system. The spiritual enemy of our soul has deceived us and made us place our hope in things that are sure to fail us. And they do leaving us in a hopeless state.   You are not hopeless!     A believer in Christ, should never be hopeless or without hope. A believer in Christ should be like Christ …

Prayer Should Be At Every Stage Of Our Calling In Ministry

Spending time in prayer is one of the most important and valuable goals we can accomplish in any area of life. Ministry and prayer always go hand in hand.

God’s Calling, God’s Commission, and Getting Your Ministry Started

My Pastor’s message this morning was focused around the reality that we are all made for more. We are saved by God, called by God, for something bigger than ourselves and beyond ourselves.   Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. 2 Timothy 1:9   God has called each person to their own individual ministry in the body of Christ. That looks …

Do You Need Healing?

need healing

We all need healing at some point in life. Maybe we need physical healing for some form of a common sickness like sinus problems, headaches, or a stomach virus. Sometimes the more dangerous and deadly diseases cause us to seek God for healing for ourselves or for someone we love.     Physical healing is a big deal for sure, but there are other forms of healing we can need. We can need emotional or mental healing from heart wounds or word wounds. Relationships sometimes experience damage that only God’s healing …

Freedom from My Past

Freedom

Freedom – We live in a land that is known for it’s freedom. Even living in a land of freedom, we can still live a life without true freedom. That was my story. My life before Christ was a life of rebellion to everything that was right, a life of alcoholism, and a life of destructive decisions. I made a mess of every area of my life. Three words that could characterize my life before Jesus were failure, brokenness, and shame.

The Christmas Story: Fears, Impossibility, & Truth

Christmas Story

My Christmas Story The Christmas season is my favorite. I have so many wonderful memories and wonderful memories are still being made. While growing up, Christmas tree shopping was the most fun. We normally went Christmas tree shopping on Thanksgiving. For my family, Christmas tree shopping initiated the Christmas season. I remember running between trees looking for the perfect tree. I remember the smell of the pine. I remember the sound of the saw. The excitement registered even higher when our flighty Louisiana weather allowed a chill in the air. …

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words, is something I have always believed. Not that words are not important, but if the words and the actions don’t coincide and reveal the same thing, then the words seem pointless. Ashley White writes today’s devotional about how actions speak louder than words. I love her biblical insight and personal testimony about how actions speak louder than words to God too.
