JUST PRAY!! IT WORKS!!

How often have you shared a situation in your life and someone responded by saying, “I’ll be praying for you.” That seems life an easy answer to your complex issues, but, it is one of the most powerful means of helping you. Prayer changes things, it even changes the mind of God. In Exodus, God […]

RELATIONSHIPS!! THEY REQUIRE COMMITMENT!!

5-22-19 THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…RELATIONSHIPS!! IT TAKES COMMITMENT!! Strong, healthy, enjoyable relationships don’t happen by accident. They take time, effort, work, and commitment. We have enjoyed the last few days visiting with family that we have strong relationships with. Both sides of the relationship is willing to do whatever it takes to stay close and […]

PLAN!! STAY WITH YOUR PLAN!!

I think sometimes we talk so much about spiritual warfare that we leave the wrong impression on people. We do have an enemy and he is working against us daily to distract us from fulfilling the purpose God has for our life, but there is so much more. If all we faced were continuous battles […]

BETTER!! BETTER THAN YESTERDAY!!

The biggest battles often comes first thing in the morning, often just as you are getting out of bed. Satan will begin to remind you of everything that went wrong yesterday as well as every failure you made. Satan goal is to keep you living in your yesterday and steal your today from you. Don’t […]

POTENTIAL!! BE YOUR BEST!!

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 […]

FINAL EXAMINE!! GRADUATION DAY!!

It is graduation time in Alabama. Colleges, high school, even kindergarten classes are having their graduation ceremonies. I have heard students in college and high school talk about the stress of taking those final exam tests. Tests that prove that you are ready to step into the next level of life, profession, or school. Tests […]

PERSEVERE!! IT PAYS OFF!!

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 […]

FRIENDS!! CHOOSE WISELY!!

We all know as parents, that when a child reaches school age we are no longer the greatest influence in their lives. Their influence comes from their peer group. It’s amazing how deeply we are swayed by those we are around every day. We find ourselves talking like them, having the same desires they have, […]

CUT IT LOOSE!! LET IT GO!!

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 up on the island of Malta. God had spared the entire crew through the shipwreck and now Paul was building a fire on the island to warm and no doubt […]

CAUTION!! USE GOOD JUDGEMENT!!

My devotion this morning was about a word we don’t hear much everyday. 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 be used effectively. Gifts such as our time, energy, strength, good health, […]

MORE!! WHERE DO I FIND 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 […]

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 […]

INFLUENCE!! LEAD OTHERS!!

The month of May is the beginning of homecoming and family reunions. It is a time of honoring those who have influenced our lives and helped make us who we are today. The influence they have been in our lives is what gives us the ability to live and experience the life we live today. […]

SELF ESTEEM!! KEEP IT HIGH!!

The one question most people struggle with in their walk with God is: How do I know that I am doing enough for God? These questions come from a society that bases most of it’s accolades from perfectionism standard instead of God’s grace. We love to live with the victim mentality. To receive something means […]

WAIT!! WAIT ON GOD!!

If something is wrong, it is our human nature to want it fixed. If we are told we have a medical condition, we want it remedied as soon as possible. People of action jump right in when there is a problem. Many times our haste to get something done only makes the situation worse instead […]

FRESH START!! WE ALL NEED IT!!

How many said last Friday, “Thank God it is Friday, I can’t wait for my weekend.” Then, today arrives and we realize that we are starting out another Monday morning still tired, worn out, exhausted, and mentally fatigued. We’ve never taken time to get away from the pressure, stress, and worries that life brings on […]
