Amazing Grace

How many of us have sung “Amazing Grace” over the years and not paid attention to the lyrics.  I can vividly remember singing this song a few weeks after I gave my life to Christ and it was almost like I heard it for the first time. Suddenly the lyrics became so meaningful to me. I…

Are you a People Pleaser?

Do you find yourself over-committed from time to time? Are you running around ragged, accepting all requests that come your way? Does it feel like your to do list somehow grows throughout the day instead of shrinking as you complete your tasks and actions? You may want to stop and question why this might be happening to you….

Is Your Voice Leading You?

Ever since I learned that we all have God given talents and gifts that we are called to use for God, there has been this lingering voice in my head that says: “But you are not great at anything, do you even have gifts or talents that can be used for God?” Honestly, I feel like I’m a…

True or False?

True or false: everything you experience is a result of your own truth?

But what if all this selfishness was exactly what was keeping us away from living out our purpose or reaching our potential? Wouldn’t that be ironic? To be so focused on ourselves that…

What is Your Calling?

Imagine you got a new job at Microsoft.  And out of the blue, Bill Gates walks into your office and says, “I’ve seen the work you do and this job is all wrong for you.  I have substantial plans for you in this totally different department. I know that you are comfortable now and this may be intimidating,…

How to Change Everything

When I go through the daily grind, it helps me to keep this PERSPECTIVE: For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. (1 Timothy 6:7 KJV) Are we focused on great gains here on Earth? Getting “stuff?” Do we spend all of our time on things that…

What Are You Waiting On?

You are carrying a burden and a heavy heart.  You can’t sleep. You can’t eat. You are broken… weary… worn… so you want to give up.  But my friend, you have a God in Heaven who is awaiting your call.  He wants to hear your prayers and answer them. “And I say unto you, Ask,…
