Two Ways Anger Flows: Which will you choose?

Anger, Patience, Prayer, Purpose |

Proverbs 19:3  (NLT)  “People ruin their own lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the lord.” Matthew 5:22 (KJV) “But I (Jesus) say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment…” Have a short fuse, about to go off, blow your top, have a hair trigger temper, lose your cool, lay your religion down…these idioms are expressions of how we describe […]

Love One Another

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Kindness, Love, Peace, Prayer, Purpose |

34 “So now I (Jesus) am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 NLT Emojis have taken over common, everyday conversation. We text and use them to signify emotions instead of saying the words. However, there is one emoji that is taking even the advertising […]

Loving Yourself

Goodness, Healing, Love, Prayer, Purpose, Worship |

“For in Him we live and move and have our being…” Acts 17:28a NKJV Many believers have the mistaken idea that all they are supposed to do is take care of others and deny themselves. It’s as if they live under a heavy spirit of self-sacrifice. You are to take care of others and share with them what you have (Isaiah 58:6-7), for everything you have belongs to God because nowhere in the Bible has […]

God’s Definition of Love

Love, Prayer, Purpose |

4 “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud   5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT In Genesis 1: 27-28, God […]

Praise

Praise, Prayer, Success |

Psalm 50:23 “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversations aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Praising God encompasses so many facets in that you praise God in your dance, in your shout, in your lifestyle, in your thanks, and in your conversation. Praise is more than a Sunday or Wednesday thing. It is every day and it is in every part of you. Whatever you do, you do […]

The Relationship Between Faith and Prayer

Faith, Freedom, Grow, Prayer, Purpose |

The Christian faith provides many tools to help the believer go to the next level. An integral part of this system is prayer. Prayer is your way of communicating with God and asking for whatever you need in the name of Jesus. God is without a doubt omniscient; He knows everything about you, your fears, your family; but there is something about sharing your thoughts, concerns, and desires with God that reveals a spiritual intimacy […]

Faith: Praising Without Receiving

Faith, Family, Love, Patience, Prayer, Worship |

“David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth…the child died…Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped…” 2 Samuel 12:16, 18a, 20a David did all he could for God to spare his and Bathsheba’s first son, but the child died. After fasting, praying, and lying prostrate […]

Faith: Giving Without Having

Faith, Grow, Healing, Love, Prayer |

“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and make for thee and for thy son.” 1 Kings 17:13 In the midst of a famine, Elijah asked a widow in the land of Zarephath to make him a little cake to eat. She only had a handful of meal and a small cruse of oil, but […]

Faith: Believing Without Seeing

Faith, Grow, Prayer, Thrive |

“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7 Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night and walked from your bedroom to another room in the house without turning on the lights? You didn’t stumble. You didn’t falter. You didn’t even have to feel for the wall. Why? You knew where you were going. You were in familiar territory. Eventually your eyes adjusted and you could see quite well […]

Pray For Our Nation

Prayer |

I have great concern over the senseless shootings that have occurred in our country, many deaths that could have been avoided. Recently, two civilians were violently murdered. Then on the following day innocent, non-violent protesters had their message shattered by an execution-style attack on the very law enforcement officers that were assigned to protect them. When people fail to respect one another, finding no value in human life, without healthy regard for themselves, their family, […]
