The Countdown

Have you ever heard the term, “The precious present?” This term isn’t referring to a gift that can necessarily be wrapped with boxes and packaging, or really anything that one person can give to another. This term is referring to a gift that we can only give to ourselves, the precious time we have here in the present. The here…

Are You Ready?

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:15 I always consider myself to be a preparer. I love to be organized, on time, and ready for whatever is coming at me day to day. I’ve learned that whenever…

Take It Easy

I was talking with a friend of mine who desires to have a deeper relationship with God, but has been struggling to find the time to spend in prayer or in the Word of God. They felt so weighed down by guilt and shame that it seemed so hard for them to grow spiritually and in their relationship with God,…

Pursue Peace, Do Good

“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue It.” ~ Psalm 34:14 In today’s world it is so easy to fall out of peace. Peace is considered the exception, rather than the rule in our society. People spend millions of dollars in pursuit of peace, and yet never find it. Why is this, when Christ died so that…

Making the effort to reach out is a sure way to connect with one another. The Bible is full of examples of the importance of reach.  God is reaching for…

2019, Now What?

We have all officially made it through the first week of 2019. Congratulations! Now what?  A popular tradition that has come through the years is to create a New Year’s Resolution, in the hope of improving certain areas of our lives. For example, we all know that in January of a New Year is when gym memberships become higher than…

Happy New Year!

2019 is here at last! My wife asked me this morning where I see myself in 2020, and I had to answer, “I don’t know, I don’t have 20/20 vision.” But all jokes aside, my vision, and God’s vision for the next year of my life and ministry is bigger than ever!  2018 was full of miracles, provision, healings, restoration,…

Merry Christmas!

This year God has blessed us beyond measure, but nothing compares to the gift that God gave us thousands of years ago on Christmas day, the day that Jesus Christ was born.  That is why we are celebrating today. We celebrate to remember the gift of Christ that God gave to us, and thank Him for all that He has…

1 Week Until Christmas!

In exactly one week children all over the world will be waking up to check their stockings, peek under the tree, and wrestle their parents out of bed to begin the day. Can you imagine if everyone everyday started off with as much joy and excitement that a child has on Christmas morning? I think we would all definitely get…
