• New Life Levels

    Are you living with the faith that wins over fear, worry, and doubts? About your life, your health, your goals, and dreams? When we can put these things behind us, we can move FWD!! Doubts about who you are and what your life will come to be, worry over your body and things that aren’t good or right, fear in not reaching your goals or accomplishing the dreams that’s been put inside… all of this adds up to loss and lack. It leaves us with a worn down spirit. But when we let the Words of Life flow through our veins, our relationships, and our living room- when we repeat…

  • When I can’t

    What song will you sing while you’re grieving something or someone? Big Daddy Weave’s new song All things new, has been on my mind and it’s the song I’m singing lately. As I do, a picture of Mike and Jay Weaver goes through my heart. When we first started ministry, they (along with their team) were our Worship leaders in Youth services. We knew that they’d go places with those big voices and all that talent. Jay Weaver recently passed due to Covid after he lost his leg with the struggle of diabetes. So as I hear the music of this precious song begin, I make it a prayer. I…

  • A House Home

    Foundations are put in place first. When you have Him as your foundation, you want the walls to be strong. You want the power to come on! You want the electricity to work. You care about the running water! You desire the airflow and heat to generate as needed. You want that house to be a home! For that to happen, you need something warm in it! You need love. You need things that only God can provide. You want Him to circulate through the house and make it feel homey. When He’s invited in, we are more considerate. When He is around, we want to be kind. When He…

  • Sand or Cement

    Sand or Cement? Crash or Christ? Soft or Solid? I say “cement” because that’s what most people view as super hard, durable, and lasting. There are different mixtures and techniques to use with making cement. The truth is, Christ is Rock. (Psalm 18:2 My God is my rock.) Unlike us, there are no air bubbles in Him that will become weak points during strength tests because He is the strongest type of rock. He is strong for us. When we aren’t holding up, He is Bedrock. Unwavering. Unmoved. Unchangeable because there is nothing in Him that needs changing. My Dad always says when tough times come, you find out who…

  • Yesterday’s Haphazards

    What do we do with our messed up page of yesterday’s haphazards? BALL IT UP AND CRUMBLE THAT ONE. THROW IT AWAY. TOSS IT TO THE TRASH CAN. RE-WRITE IT AS A TURNAROUND STORY. People want to know how to create change. The answer isn’t in self-inflation or self-disgust but in self-respect through Godly reverence. Dying to self and then living for Him or living for Him and continuing to die to self. We empty our own self to let another be full of Him. We say the hard things without hesitation or fear of rejection because we know it will bring response that indicates whether the person will move outside of themselves to…
