MAXIMIZE YOUR POTENTIAL!!

You and I are capable of achieving certain things in life. I have met many talented people in life, people who could do many more things than I can do, but I never met anyone who can do everything. I do believe the level of success we are capable of reaching is linked to the […]

STRENGTH FOR TODAY!!

We have everything imaginable to help us get through a day more easily, yet I hear people everyday talking about how tired they are. You would think we are back in the old days when people got up before daylight and did manual labor until dark. People who are always talking about tired can’t imagine […]

PREPARE FOR PROMOTION!!

Graduates this year have gone through unprecedented tests in order to earn their diplomas. The pandemic has put new hurdles in their paths to cross. I have heard students in college and high school talk about the stress of taking those exam tests without the personal support of teachers the past couple years. These tests […]

YOU NEED STAYING POWER!!

One thing that is missing in our society is loyalty and longevity. It seems as soon as one company trains a person to do a job they are leaving to make another nickle somewhere else. The same is true with homes today. Fifty percent of all marriages end up in divorce. There is no desire […]

BE A GOOD SERVANT!!

I don’t know of an occupation that determines whether or not you have an enjoyable experience more than the person who serves you. Whether it is in a restaurant, a department store, a grocery store, or even a hospital, we grade the facility based on the person who is serving us. Waiter or waitress is […]

THOSE AROUND YOU INFLUENCE YOU!!

We all know as parents, that when a child reaches school age we have competition when it comes to influencing our children’s lives. The influence we have imparted into their lives becomes challenged by influences coming from their peer group. It’s amazing how deeply people are swayed by those they are around every day. We […]

SAFETY IN GODS PRESENCE!!

We all need a place to get away from our problems at times. Even Jesus went to a secluded place to pray about the events of his life. The getaway place we choose is very important. Do you remember playing hide and seek as a child? You would hide in the same place that it […]

SHAKE IT OFF!! LET IT GO!!

We can be so hard on ourselves for things we have done or have not done in our past. Time can not be recalled and life can not be relived. Nothing torments us more than some failure that we can not forget. My devotion this morning talked about Paul being in the shipwreck and ending […]

USE GOOD JUDGMENT!!

I read a word this morning that you don’t hear much in your daily conversation nor is it practiced often enough in our daily living. That word is “Prudence.” It means being a good stewards of what God has entrusted to us. The gifts God has blessed us with today requires prudence in order to […]

GOD CAN GIVE YOU MORE!!

We live in a world where we never have enough. We are always wanting more. I recently watched an insurance commercial where the clients was bragging about getting more. In one ad the client was a weight lifter and gained muscle with each “more” he received from the insurance company. The next commercial the client […]

SHOW KINDNESS!! BUILD PEOPLE UP!!

MAY 3rd…KINDNESS!! DON’T SHOW PARTIALITY!! Kindness is something you don’t see much anymore and hiding behind masks didn’t help any. People are so self-centered that they only care about themselves. We live in a get even world. If someone does us wrong, then we have the right to do them wrong. If someone lies about […]

REAL PROGRESS!! TRUE SUCCESS!!

We live in a world where getting by is never enough. To prove we have made real progress and have been successful, we must have more than some one else has obtained. The truth is that a person can never obtain enough things and money to make them truly prosperous. Real prosperity requires so much […]

HONOR THOSE WHO HELPED MOLD YOU!!

The month of May is the beginning of homecoming and family reunions. Mother’s Day, Family Reunions, Memorial Day, Church homecoming, and family reunions are important dates to remember those who have invested so much into our lives. Due to the continuing concerns about the coronavirus our gathering will be different than before, but we still […]

KEEP SELF ESTEEM HIGH!!

Self-esteem is something many people struggle with daily. They judge themselves from what they see others doing or what they think other people are. Self-esteem is always a struggle for those who believe in God. The one question most people struggle with in their walk with God is: How do I know that I am […]
