We all have an assignment. We all have a ministry. Our ministry starts by being good to people. When goodness flows out of our hearts, it catches people’s attention. It causes them to want to know more about what we have.
Fear comes to all of us, whether it’s a fear of being taken advantage of, of failing, of being laughed at, or of being hurt again. But God says, “That is not from Me." Fear is not of God.
God wants us to understand that whatever season we are facing right now, we’re getting stronger and more beautiful, and He’s preparing us to take flight to the next stage of our lives.
Given the pace of life today, you need to take a pause and ask yourself if you're just rushing through life and running on empty. To often, we forget to stop and enjoy those beautiful moments. We need to learn to take a minute, breathe it all in, and say, "Thank You, Lord!"
The Bible tells us "to encourage one another daily" (Hebrews 3:13). It doesn't say, "Wait around to be encouraged." It says, "Have an exchange of encouragement on a daily basis." That is where we find help and growth.
You can lift the fallen. You can restore the broken. You can be kind to a stranger. As you help them rise higher, you will rise higher. As you meet their needs, God will meet your needs.
Today, make the decision to shake off any negative, self-defeating mindsets. Choose to cooperate with God. Trust that He is preparing you for promotion. As you keep an attitude of faith, expectancy, and thanksgiving, He will lift you up and set you on the solid path of victory.
God has given us so many gifts that perhaps we've come to take Him for granted. He's given us salvation. He's given us strength for battle, the gift of His presence. It's important that when we come to God that we learn to receive His gifts with gratefulness in our hearts.
We never want to lose the awe and the wonder of the good things God has done in our lives. Today, let's be people who let God know that we are grateful for His blessings. Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!
God is saying to you today, “Look up. I made you for more.” Don’t feel discouraged with where you are. This is not your final destination. You can’t rush the process. Lift up your eyes and you’ll see the greatness of our God.

When you intertwine your life with others' lives, they will stand strong and you will stand strong. Together, you'll grow with the strength and blessings of God. We're better together. We're meant to be together.
God’s promises are spoken in the unseen realm. That’s why God lifts the veil so that we can get a glimpse of what He’s doing. We won’t always see every step of the way, but He shows us enough to comfort, encourage, and empower us to move forward.
Too often, we fail to understand that we are in a season right now, and God has a purpose for this time. If we don't recognize the different seasons, we're bound to miss the purpose they are meant to serve and miss how they should be preparing us for the next part of our life.
Ecclesiastes says, "Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other one can reach out and help." God intended us to be in a community, to motivate, strengthen and support one another. That's the healthy way to live.
We might have troubles and challenges; everything might not be perfect. But we walk in the presence of Almighty God! Let's receive what He has for us today because He loves us so much! Let's be that joyful, happy, delighted person who receives His gifts with thanksgiving!
If what you’re experiencing isn’t going to work for your good, God wouldn’t allow it. Shake off the disappointment. What God promised you, He’s still going to bring to pass!
No matter what you face, on the other side of that difficulty is something extraordinary. It is worth putting your best effort into it even when you don't see where the routine is taking you.
You can live in freedom today. You can get up in the morning and truly say, "God, I'm not going to condemn myself because I know that You're not condemning me. I believe that You love me with an everlasting love.”
You have gifts and talents that are matchless. Only you can do what God has called you to do. Only you were created to be you. You were designed uniquely to be extraordinary.
God loves us just the way we are. He doesn't wait until we're perfect to call us, until we get ourselves looking good enough, until we somehow measure up to what we think we should be in His sight. God calls each of us just the way we are right at this moment.
The writer of Psalm 1 said, “If you will meditate on God’s Word day and night…you will bear fruit in every season without fail.” Notice that it is in every season of your life. Even if the economy goes down, you’ll be thriving. When others have fear, you’ll have peace.
It’s not always easy to get over it and move forward, but here’s the key: the pain of letting it go is less than the pain of holding on and missing your destiny.

Whenever you pray, invite the Lord to search your heart. Choose to forgive anyone who has hurt you. As you walk in forgiveness, you’ll experience His hand of blessing in ways you never thought possible, and you will move forward in the abundant life He has in store for you.
Disappointments, hurts, and unfair situations will come to all of us, but we can’t allow memories of those situations to dominate our lives. Use your words to build yourself up and rewrite the negative narrative in your mind with the truth of who God says you are.
Jesus said, "I came that you may have life, and have it in abundance" (John 10:10). He came so that we could live an abundant life, an extraordinary life, an exceptional life.
Sometimes there’s no logical reason to have hope. There may be many reasons your situation will never work out. But you have to, against all hope, hope on in faith. Get your hopes up. Just because God’s promise hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.
Everyone has been hurt, offended, betrayed, and mistreated at some point. The important thing is that we choose to forgive so that we can open the door to God’s forgiveness and healing in our own lives. Forgiveness sets you free and draws you closer to your Heavenly Father.
When we go through something that is painful and unchanging, it's easy for the enemy to whisper the thought that God loves us according to our performance. But that is not true. Actually, that couldn't be further from the truth. The Scripture says God loves us unconditionally.
We need to protect our heart. We must protect it and take care of what we allow to take root and have precedence in it.
I hope you'll join us for a time of refreshing and God's Word! In person or online at Saturday & Sunday 7PM CT (Online) Sunday 8:30AM & 11AM CT (In-Person & Online)
God has already equipped and empowered you for every situation. When you speak words of victory, “I can do all things through Christ. I am strong in the Lord,” that’s when you’ll go places that you couldn’t go on your own.
When you look back over your life, think of some of the things you’ve faced that, at the time, you didn’t think you could make it through. You didn’t see a way, but God turned it around. That wasn’t a coincidence. It was the hand of God.
Thank you to those who have bravely protected our nation. God bless you! #VeteransDay
You don’t have to go after blessings; just go after God. Keep Him first place. Live a life of excellence and integrity, and God promises the blessings will find their way into your hands.
Don't let fear become part of your identity. Don't let discouragement define you. The only way to fight fear and discouragement—to be strong and courageous—is to take hold of God’s Word and obey it.
Jesus prayed that His joy would "remain in you, and that your joy may be full" (John 15:11). The beauty of the joy that Jesus gives us is that it is not dependent on what is going on around us. His joy is in us.
Happy Birthday Alexandra! You are truly beautiful in every way!
Check out my blog, "Who Are You Intertwined with Today?":
The apostle Paul said it this way: "Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice" (Philippians 4:4). To rejoice means "to brighten." There's a light of Jesus' joy inside you. You just have to turn it on.
Remind yourself who you are. Align yourself with God. You don’t have to stay awake and toss and turn at night. God is in control. He’s fighting your battles. He always causes you to triumph.
Jesus said: “Seek first the kingdom and all these things will be added unto you.” Everything you need to fulfill your destiny has already been laid up for you. Make pleasing God your highest priority.
If we're going to stand during the trials of life, we have to come out with joy and walk in peace. We have to use joy to deliver us from anxious thoughts, defeat, and discouragement. Joy is the key, and it's inside us.
What do you fear? The enemy will use what people say and do to you as well as your circumstances to try to discourage you and stop what God has started in your life. But at the root of it all is fear. Don’t let the enemy use fear to try to steal your destiny.
Remember, we can’t do anything about what happened in the past, but we can do something about right now. Begin to focus on what you can change instead of what you can’t change.
The Bible says that when we live in unity with other believers, there He has commanded the blessing. And when your heart is in the place of blessing, your life will be in the place of blessing, too.
