Do You Know Someone Who Needs A Life Change?

Life Change

Twenty-five years ago I was the someone who needed life change. Life change came when I encountered Jesus. He stepped into my life and turned my life around. I was the one who no one thought it could be real. I even heard that people said, “There is no way she is following Jesus.” (more…)

Being Thankful During Every Season

Being Thankful

Being thankful is the heart of Thanksgiving which has always been one of my favorite holidays. My fondest childhood memories are sitting around a table with family, eating way too much, watching football, playing outside with my cousins, and finishing the day with decorating for Christmas. I loved the food, the family time, and the excitement for the next season to celebrate.

Waiting On God To Fulfill His Promise Is The Hard Part Of Following God

Waiting OnGod

For me, if I want something, I wanted it yesterday, not tomorrow, and certainly not later than that.   When I sat down to write this blog post, I asked God to help me.

This way they could see and know my prayers for them. (more…)

Partakers of A Rich Inheritance

RICH INHERITANCE

The past two blog posts I focused on Ephesians 1:17-19, My Favorite Prayer To Pray for myself and my family. In my last post, I concentrated on the fact that Paul prayed for the Ephesian church to know What Is The Hope Of God’s Calling. He also prayed for them to know what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. (more…)

Thought Life Renovation: We All Need One!

Thought Life Renovation

A thought life renovation is a lot like a house renovation. Have you ever watched a home renovation or even lived through one? I lived in an old house while I renovated it. One room at a time, I removed and resurfaced old fixtures and features and brought in new materials and elements. I transformed the entire house room by room. The renovation took time and commitment to see its completion but it proved worth it. Right now I am in the midst of renovating a townhouse for my youngest daughter …
