Every year for the past 8 or so years, I have chosen a “theme” of the year…some call it their “word” of the year.
It’s not something that I “invent” but rather something that I prayerfully consider and ask the Lord for guidance on.
This morning, my word for 2024 came to me as I was reviewing my 2023 journal…
Today I want to tell you a story of a true Mega Miracle that I was a witness to.
But before I do, I want to preface it with this…
We are in the midst of a great spiritual battle.
One of the Enemy’s greatest weapons he deploys against us?
For years I viewed “quiet time” as a luxury.
When could I “sneak away” and “make time” to be in the presence of God, and receive what He has for me?
Usually, my plan sounded something like this…
The World wants to confuse us about who we are. The world wants us to choose how we “identify”.
This morning, I was led to Isaiah 43. I love this passage because it’s a passage of identity. Who does God say I am, and who does God say that He is?
I grew up feeling God was distant…on a throne in the Heavens, looking down and judging me.
When I thought of God, I didn’t think of a loving Father, but instead of one that I was constantly disappointing because of my sinful nature.
If that’s where you are today, my words are for you.
Do we really need church to connect to God? Are live stream services good enough to fill us up spiritually?
Let’s talk church, y’all.
Ever had a time in your life where no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to get control of major areas in your life?
The storms of life hit everyone at some point.
If you aren’t careful, the storms of life can fling you into a pit of depression, despair or hopelessness. I should know, I’ve been there.
But it doesn’t have to be that way…
On Mother’s Day, as I was lounging on the couch with all three kids draped across me…all I could do was thank God over and over for his faithfulness to me.
I remember so clearly one quiet time in particular shortly after I miscarried. I was absolutely gutted.
Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Been called to do something big? Feeling burdened?
This message is for you.
My sister-in-law, Kendra, has a mantra.
Take it ONE step at a time.
Some days, I think it’s a brilliant suggestion. Other days, I feel like there’s just no way in “this situation” that it is a good idea.
But the reality is…it’s not just a GOOD idea, it’s a GOD idea.
