Perspective

Perspective. It’s a choice. We can choose to see in the positive in life despite the negatives. Or we can miss the positives because of the negatives. Ultimately, it’s our choice. We have the power to choose. Either let the trials of life define us and that be all we see or let them refine... Continue Reading →

Easter

Why were none of the disciples waiting by Jesus’ tomb on the third day? Looking at the gospel of Matthew, Jesus states to His disciples multiple times what must happen to Him. “From then on Jesus began to tell His disciples plainly that it was necessary for Him to go to Jerusalem, and that He...

Prophetic Culture

What would it look like if we lived in a prophetic culture? What’s a “prophetic culture” you ask? The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 14:1, 3 “Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy...But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.” A prophetic culture is one where...

Correction

Discipline. Chastening. Correction. Rebuke. These are words that do not stir warm feelings. We cringe at the thought of them, but these words should bring freedom. These words should inspire hope. These words are to shine light in dark places to make room for more light and love to come in. The Lord corrects/disciplines/chastens/rebukes those... Continue Reading →

A sense of humor…

When God starred stirring in my heart in February that it was time to let go of the Texas Longhorns my dad loved to raise, I was sad, but knew there was a purpose. After we sold the last of them in April, the busyness of spring and summer with increasing ministry and business opportunities... Continue Reading →

Choose Today

"Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve." -Joshua 24:15 Choice is one of the first gifts God gave us.  Free will.  He gave man free will to choose life that which is good or to choose death that which is evil (Deuteronomy 28).  Man has chosen evil repeatedly, then chosen to blame others...

Take note

When things repeat, take note. That was one of the first lessons the Lord taught me through stirring my spirit within. This verse has been on repeat lately. At a time I’ve needed it most. God’s character never changes. He doesn’t change. He doesn’t lie. He is trustworthy. In our situations, it’s always His character... Continue Reading →
