    Whose are you? It really matters!

    It was interesting this morning as I woke up and the lyrics kept playing in my head “the devil wants you but Jesus says you are mine” and it kept repeating Jesus says “you are mine”. Whose are you? It matters today and for your final destination. It matters when you are faced with a…

    The gift of God’s presence

    Ever been challenged? Ever considered or asked why? We need to turn back to God and lean into Him because His ways are higher than our ways and better than our ways. So lean on God rather than your own understanding, acknowledging Him so that He can show you the path to take. You may…

    Serving together – How to grow closer together.

    I remember how when my wife and I were saved God put jetpacks on our backs to help us get up to speed and positioned to serve.

  • Water. What comes to mind when you think about it?

    Water. What comes to mind when you think about it?

    Is it something silly like, is water wet? Is it a vision of a tropical destination with a beach or a pool? Is it stories of miracles (Moses and the parting of the Red Sea, Joshua and the parting of the Jordan, Noah and the great flood, Jonah and the whale, Jesus walking on water,…

  • P.R. News from Paul to the Philippians

    P.R. News from Paul to the Philippians

    Went to a great vision banquet last night where Pastor Jenkins got to share the Word. The points all followed the pattern of P.R. as he spoke from Philippians 4 in the section that speaks to the Philippian Church’s generosity. He shared first from Philippians 4:19 and then showed us how we have to go…

    Starting with you, use love to change the world!

    There is always looking out and pointing the finger at what’s out there and blaming. We need to decide today that we will start with us and use love to change this world.

    Spending time with God by living on prayer!

    As I prep for today and realize it is half-way through the week a song came to mind from my childhood. It’s always interesting to me when this happens because I wouldn’t have considered them Christian or worship songs but as with many of the songs, when you realize songs are to be used to…

    Challenged yesterday by making the most of today!

    When your body wakes you up with a sore stomach and you have a cold sweat it changes your plans.

    When you think about generosity, it’s not a matter of quantity it’s a matter of the heart! When you think about generosity, it’s not a matter of the stuff, it’s a matter of the heart! So God desires a hilariously cheerful giver! Be it the poor widow who gave her best that was observed and…
