You Are Ready

You are ready to do what God called you to do. In the last post, I wrote about waiting on God. In this one, I want to ask have we thought about maybe God is waiting on us? We go through life waiting on people to tell us when we are ready to do something […]

Sometimes you just need to stand there. Ephesians 6:13 NIV Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Don’t just do something, stand there. Usually we hear that the other way […]

Find Your Horizon

Your focus is essential to weathering the storm. I remember growing up in Florida and I had been on many boats. One boat trip in particular though, as a kid, I remember getting seasick. It was the worst experience ever. I had never felt like that, I was at the mercy of the sea and […]

Breaking the Power of Intimidation

Heart Guard

Guard your heart and the interest of your heart. People who have your best interest at heart are very rare to come by. You can usually tell who has your best interest at heart by what happens when they have the opportunity to take advantage of you. It’s kinda a no-brainer but we always get […]
