Are You In The Fight?

Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on NO Longer Slaves by Jonathan and Melissa Helser

I think today is a great day to start back on the road to trusting God.

Sometimes the storm may get so hard that it seems like the only way to get any relief is by occupying your mind with something else.

It’s usually not even intentional. That reality t.v show, that delicious sweet you can’t seem to live without, shopping without purpose, internet surfing with no direction, or just becoming a couch potato and watching movie after movie.

Anything to bring peace to your surroundings and current situation.

I’ve buried myself so far down in the rabbit hole that I couldn’t see my way out.

Faith That Moves!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Stay and Wait by Hillsong United

I wrote this blog awhile back, but still and always will believe that if you completely let go, God will do the impossible. And, I’m talking about the thing that you know there is no way you’ll ever acquire on your own, or with your own might.

Whew, have you ever thought about how easy it is to give up?

I mean seriously, faith can sometimes be a lot of work. It requires a lot of stamina, energy, strength, and perseverance to see your way through all the darkness.

It sometimes makes you want to scream, cry, and shout from the top of your lungs.

Having faith and not seeing the results you wish to see may even make you want to blame God or whoever’s closest to you.

But I’ve heard that it’s in the times of testing that we are made. That’s when we find out what we’re really made of.

Drawing Closer To God

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Have Your Way Casey J feat Pastor Jason Nelson

I posted this blog over a year ago, but today it is ringing true for me and I thought someone else might need to let go of there own way of doing things and try adopting God’s way of doing it.

That saying about let go and let God has never been truer. Enjoy!

Jesus said to Martha “You are worried and upset.” There is only one thing to be concerned about and Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her. (Luke 10:38-42 NLT)

Drawing closer to God is the single most important thing we could ever do for ourselves. And the enemy knows it. That’s why you may notice when you decide to draw closer to the Creator, distractions from any and everywhere imaginable will come.

It can get so bad that you may feel that you were doing better before you started to draw closer.

But that’s the trap that the enemy wants you to fall into.

He wants you to give up because boy if you reach the finish line………..God WINS and he LOSES!!!

Jesus’ Birth Foretold

Good News Thursday!!!

Wow! Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner?

It seems that we were just celebrating Thanksgiving the other day and now, Christmas is right on our tails.

So what better time to start the two-part series of Jesus’ birth then today?

You may not have had time to sit down and read the story to either yourself or your family and loved ones due to the demands of life, but what better time than now to prepare for a two-part night of story time where you gather everyone together, have some popcorn or baked goods and just experience the humble magnificence of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Judge You’re Not!

Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Unchurched by Todd Dulaney

Why is it that we’re so quick to judge others.

Are we naturally conditioned to do so due to our religious backgrounds or home upbringing?

Why is it so easy to find the bad vs. the good in others?

Is it due to our own insecurities that keep us from uplifting others?

I personally think that it could be a little of all the above.

I also believe that due to us not knowing fully the magnitude of God’s love toward us it’s easy for us to believe that God himself couldn’t be completely nonjudgmental.

You Will Find Him if You Seek Him

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Fill Me Up by Casey J

Now is the time to seek the Lord. With so many things going on in the world today–random terrorist attacks, senseless killings, suicides, job loss, depression, hearts being deceived–people becoming more and more desensitized to the needs and well being of others.

And why is that?

I believe it’s because we’ve become so overwhelmed with what we SEE and how we FEEL about what we see, that we’ve taken our focus off of God and the Word and taken matters into our own hands. The result? Messed up lives. Continue reading

Standing On His Promises

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Remember Me by Shana Wilson

Maybe you’re waiting on, or in the process of waiting on God.

How’s it going?

Are you feeling victorious, lost, apprehensive?

Or maybe a little in between?

During this time of waiting it’s imperative that you get into a place where you can be silent.

Because it will take silence, perseverance, and determination to surrender your will for God’s will.

Journey with God

Image result for I Need God

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on  Gave It All by Travis Greene

I Need Thee, Oh, I Need Thee;
 Every Hour I Need Thee;
Oh, Bless Me Now, My Savior,
I Come To Thee.

That song now rings fresh in my mind.

It’s a clear reminder from my soul that I should never forget what’s most important as I take this journey on this narrow road.

Surrendering to God’s will can sometimes be challenging because of the flesh. The flesh refuses to submit; therefore making it easy to feel the need to give up and just surrender to self.

But I know that if I just hold on and flee the flesh’s will then I’ll be able to submit and become one with God’s will.
