• Enemy Loophole

    Acts 13:30 says: “But God raised him (Jesus) from the dead.” There’s no loophole in Jesus for the enemy to enter in. Jesus is alive after death! Though this is extremely powerful and it seems that nothing could get at us ever again- the enemy is trying to find a loophole! He knows he couldn’t keep Jesus down but he wants to keep you down. He looks for our disbelief of the powerful Truth. He looks for someone alone, currently not seeking God, or someone who’s tired and injured. I meet people everyday who are facing devastating circumstances. I myself have recognized my own fading strength as nightfall rolls around…

  • Is faithful a place?

    When I think about faithful, I think about truth, promises, and loyalty. I think about Godly people, marriages, and long term integrity. I envision places where one generation followed the next. Where there’s been long standing business relationships. Where the old timers are still examples to the new comers. …So, faithful can be the place you built your house after all those months of scraping everything together to make it happen. -The place you got married after all the moments of waiting and believing in one another. – The place your kids grew up after all the memories spent together as a family. – The place you made a wise…

  • My Short Story

    GOD TRANSFORMS TROUBLE. Especially when we say: “I’ve done wrong and I am not innocent. But. No longer am I going to fall under the spells and spasms of fear!” Here is the short version of my story… Most of the time, a testimony starts with a hardship whether it was/is or wasn’t/isn’t our fault. I went through a hardship. I did wrong. I was troubled for a few years. I got into some relationships that weren’t the best. My life took a turn for the worst but then Jesus still caught up with me. (Even though I had veered off the path of the straight and narrow, He made…

  • He does love us

    From Genesis all the way to the end of Revelation, God proves He loves us. In the Genesis garden through the pit of Joseph, the lows of Job, the hills of Jeremiah, the cross of Jesus, and the turnarounds of Romans… This is how He loves us: He created us- He loved us. He said good things about us and loved us. He proclaimed a future for us because He loves us. He sent the Savior- He loves us! He promised turnarounds- He loves us! He gave us the victory. We are so loved. We love God back by believing Him enough to live for Him. God has given us…

  • Placing the Pieces

    HAVE YOU EVER FELT THAT YOUR “LIFE PIECES” WERE SCATTERED? THAT THE PUZZLE JUST ISN’T COMING TOGETHER? Some of you have felt that your lives are falling a part. But God wants you to know it’s kind of like a puzzle. You see the box. You see the vision and the picture and your like… “That’s what I want. That is what I want right there. That’s my desire.” And then you open up the box… pouring the pieces out, and they’re just kind of everywhere on the table. He’s wanting you to know, they’re coming together. “AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT…

  • TURN IT OVER- 1

    Of course our enemy would love for us to live on worry and wounds… BUT LET’S TURN IT OVER! Turn “it” over to God. Right now. Hand it over. To Him. It’s not just your Momma or your sister or your brother- Do you remember the old song: “It’s not my brother or my sister, but it’s me Oh God. Standing in the need of prayer”?  I’ve already established that I am not exempt from pain. But I get to choose Who I’ll stand with today and tomorrow and the next days. I get to decide if I’m going to allow the same pain from the same people, to inflict…

  • How do you run on FULL?

    One way is to stop letting other people dictate your happiness, your schedule, your commitments, and your purpose. Jesus came to run you up to full. The enemy came to run you down. Satan wants you and I to break down. He desires for us to run around on empty- and depleted. And if this is busy you, then you just might be fulfilling the enemy’s plans for your life. Satan sets us up for a fall, disaster, and loss. He wants you to miss out- he is wanting doubt to be your reasoning; he came just to empty you. (Hence the John 10:10 verse: “kill, steal, destroy.”) BUT JESUS…

  • A Pour-Over

    Do you know what happens when God pours out His Spirit? It gets you going again! Coffee gets a lot of people going every day and like me, I’m sure you’ve heard about “pour overs.” I don’t know everything there is to know about them because I’m not a coffee drinker, though I love the smell of it. However, I do know that a filter is involved and there is a period of time that it needs to sit and soak. When God’s Spirit settles in us, toxic things begin to come out and the flavor of life settles in. You don’t want to stay the same. His Spirit makes…

  • More Than Milk

    Let’s put our “hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.” 1 Tim. 6:17 Milk isn’t all there is! “Everything” is all there is. As Christians, we can have the more. But so often, we choose much less than we could have. We don’t want to be stingy and we sure don’t want to appear greedy, so we just stick with fluids. Liquids. And…pacifiers. Anytime I see a baby with a bottle, a pacifier is almost always also within reach. They’re enjoying life right now but wait until they find out meat, veggies, bread, juice, and sweets exist! They want more when they know that more…

  • Daily Light

    What is it that you are visualizing on a daily basis? Light helps us see things. It makes vision possible. Years ago, there was a Vision Room at the church my husband and I are still at. The gold metal sign said “Vision” and it was placed there to remind people coming in to pray, that vision is important. Since then, the Vision Room has become a Stronger Women’s devotion class. It’s our “Sisters” room. Great bible studies and sharing of stories bring us to a renewed commitment to Christ and experiencing Life Change. The vision for prayer has grown. Different people have interceded through the years. The vision never…
