Always Forgive

Good Morning World! Always forgive. Forgiveness is so important to our own emotional health. We cannot realize optimum potential if we are weighed down with resentment and anger from the past. Every moment that we spend focused on the pain of yesterday, is a moment lost of the promise of tomorrow. Holding a grudge? Release others and free yourself! Have a great day!



And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:12



For if ye forgive men their trespasses,… Continue

All Good Things Work Together

Good Morning World! He's always working for us. So often we can look around us and think that our lives have gone awry, but if we take a another look through the eyes of faith, we may see the hand of God placing our lives in divine order. We must remember that all things work together for our good not just all good things. Sometimes things are out of order before they can be put in order. Trust Him. Have a great day!



The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth… Continue

The Place Called There

Good Morning World! There is the place. Often our peace, prosperity & purpose is not lost, we're just out of place. A fish on dry land is out of place, but place it in the water & its genius is revealed. We are in the place when the code of purpose that was written in us in heaven is revealed. What is in your heart to do? What gives you a sense of purpose? There is the place of your prosperity. Have a great day!



And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of… Continue

Grace to Get It Right

Good Morning World! Grace is for getting it right. Legalism & religion would suggest that shortcomings in our lives are a sign that we do not belong to God. Yet, if that were true, there would be no need for grace. Somethings require time, time for understanding, time for growth, time for maturity, time. Time to change is not an indicator of no God, but evidence of God. Need time? Accept His grace. Have a great day!



And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my… Continue

Storms May Come, But They Do Go...

Good Morning World! If we're not in a storm, we will be. It is fruitless to pray that rain won't fall, it is as fruitless to pray that trials don't come. Trials can destroy, but they are not intended for that purpose. God allows trials, but through the experience we should come to abide in Him. Hence, if its sunny we're strong, but if it's not we're still strong not moved by the winds. Abide in Him. Have a great day!



These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have… Continue

Vision: Fuel for Life

Good Morning World! Get a vision. Vision is the fuel that drives us from one phase of life into another. Often motivated by our passions, it takes vision to pursue that which is burning in our hearts to accomplish. If there is nothing burning in our hearts, it is impossible to "see" our futures. God is a Revealer, He can give us the desires of our hearts and the vision through which to pursue them. Have a great day!



Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the… Continue

He Is, So I am...

Good Morning World! Knowing is half the battle. If we know that God is, there really isn't another question that needs to be asked. He is. Yet, the Word tells us to also know that He is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. That's only a bonus, knowing that He is negates the necessity of any further uncertainty in our own lives. If He is ____, we are____. Finish that sentence. If He is, I am. Have a great day!



But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that… Continue

Jesus: The Way Maker

Good Morning World! There is always a way of escape. Circumstances may leave us feeling as though we are trapped. Trapped in a relationship, a job, a house, in life. However, God has given us a promise that we are never left without a way out. What to do? Wake up, do the most productive thing that we can do that day & go to sleep. Next day, do it again. When you reach the right door, it will open. Have a great day!



There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:… Continue

Beyond Belief: Know that God Hears

Good Morning World! He's there. The presence of God is not determined by a feeling if it were faith would not be required. More often feelings contradict the will & promises of God because they are driven by emotional or physical considerations. Faith is born out of the Spirit of God & thereby transcends the tangible. Give no thought to whether you feel if He's there. Just talk to Him. He hears you. Have a great day!



But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for… Continue

Go With God...

Good Morning World! Just go. Sometimes we need to just start walking towards the future that we hope to create. Stagnation is a sign of death. Like everything in creation, people need to be ever growing in God, in purpose, in life. Otherwise, we will become stagnant and eventually die. Today, find something to pour yourself into with passion, share it with someone else and live! Have a great day!



Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in… Continue

Understanding People and Purpose

Good Morning World! People are tied to purpose. Every person in our life is there for one of two reasons, to move us toward purpose or to push us away from purpose. If we know what God has called us to do, but the environment in which we frequent is not conducive to that calling, those relationships are not tied to purpose. Do not be confused when people leave and come, they are navigational tools. Have a great day!



As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of… Continue

Please God! Walk By Faith

Good Morning World! Without faith, it's impossible to please God. If we are certain about everything, we do not need faith. We must believe that the God we serve is wise enough, big enough & powerful enough to keep us. Going from the known into the unknown can be a frightful experience if we do not trust God. Yet, that's the place where clarity in our relationship with Him is found. Walk by faith. Have a great day!



But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that… Continue

Be Fruitful: Do the Word!

Good Morning World! It's not enough to be nice, we must also be fruitful. God is a Doer. Just because we "don't" is only a start. It is selfish to think that we only present ourselves before God with a list of "I don't's". What do we do? Do we show the love of God to others, introduce them to His Kingdom and think more for their wellbeing than our own? Be a living sacrifice, then we're fruitful. Have a great day!



And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the… Continue

Never Forsaken: He is Our Father

Good Morning World! He will not forsake us, but we can forsake ourselves. As our Lord hung on the cross, He didn't look around at men when the presence of God left Him, He looked to God. He trusted what He knew not what He felt, so He called His Father, not to men. He was beaten so by His stripes we're healed. He was shamed so we are blameless. He was forsaken so we are not forsaken. Look to God. Have a great day!



Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the… Continue

Submitting Our Heart Matters to God

Good Morning World! The problem is not the acts of sin, but the lust in the heart. Doing things that are out of the will of God are born out of what is already in our hearts. We can struggle in our minds all day long to deal with our failures but never overcome them because the roots are in our hearts. Condemnation doesn't help, because it hinders us from yielding our hearts to God. Submit to God. Have a great day!



Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will… Continue

Trust God: Wait for Due Season

Good Morning World! Never struggle with time. There is a fullness of time for every situation. Once we have yielded our lives to God, we must believe that He is Lord no matter what we might face. Frustration comes when we attempt to force life to happen, peace when we allow it to happen. Find joy in each day, there is always something to smile about. Why worry? Its better to trust. Have a great day!



The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my… Continue

Don't Stumble: Look to God

Good Morning World! Don't stumble. When we're going through a difficult season, we can make the mistake of looking around. If we believe the victory of Christ Jesus, we should never look at anyone, particularly those who do not belong to Him. We know that we are victorious through Him in this life & the next. We must trust God. Do not bow to sin & wait patiently for His timing. Keep the faith. Have a great day!

Overcome the World!

Good Morning World! God is sovereign. The system of the world may appear to be good but it is designed to fail. At its core is a fallen foe who illegally took authority over the world, resulting in the perversion of God's plan for how things should operate. Nothing about the world's system is good. Everything from money to marriage to music has been twisted out of its intended use. Hence, what may look good is just the opposite. For that reason, we must call on the Sovereign God when the… Continue

Remember To Love

Good Morning World! Remember to love. When trials & attack continue for an extended period of time, emotions can overflow. By nature we turn into ourselves for protection. Yet, we can find hope in the Sovereign God of the Universe, we can shift our focus from ourselves to His perfect love. If we can't see His love, we can lose our ability to love. That is where our hope is found. Hold on to love. Have a great day!
