Win Or Lose

Don't let your team colors be more important than God. Win or lose today, He will be watching. You have expectations for your team… He has expectations for you. Remember Him in all that you do and say today!!!

Romans 6:16-17

Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance.


Best > Good

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.” ~ Steven Covey


Commanded To...

"Love each other." ~ Jesus



Thankful and sharing our thankfulness!!! Blessed to be serving, sharing prayer and fellowship.


Right Direction

Awesome reminder this morning: There is great peace when we are lost... as long as we know that we are going the right direction!


I Repent


I REFUSE TO BE KEPT IN BONDAGE!!! I have surrendered my life to Christ and I will not let the enemy keep me down. This week has been so powerful and I am so blessed to be surrounded by people that lift me up. Before I surrendered, I would not have even considered those sins to be wrong, mistakes or an issue for me at all. God has opened my eyes and my heart like never before. This week I have completely refocused, as WE ALL need to do at times. My flesh and my sinful desire's have been lying to me and I listened. Not now… not anymore… not those desires!!! 

GOD YOU ARE ALWAYS ENOUGH!!! I will continue to pray and seek Christ. I have repented and asked for forgiveness. I will pray for those who pray for me, and even harder for those that don't.

New Beginning

It's easy to feel devastated and lost when things don't go our way. We have all been there... I have a good friend that's a pastor, and he recently reminded me that the place where you have nothing to lose is called "a new beginning". Whether you have lots or absolutely zip, today is a perfect time if you need a fresh start. It's up to you!

Son Rise

Son Rise

The Son came up a painted the day with opportunity. He has revealed the darkness and made our path easy to see. I will pray hardest for those that are not in the light yet, and I will flee shadows of darkness that tempt my flesh. Jesus, please help me to stay in your light and not be a shadow for anyone that crosses my path. Amen.


I will not sin those sins again.


sed enough that he let anger and evil push him to make very poor decisions. This needs to end now.

Acts 9

I was reading Acts 9 this morning about Saul's 180 degree turn to Jesus. One day making murderous threats against the disciples, to becoming God's chosen instrument to proclaim His name... WOW!!!


'God calls us to commitment, not to comfort. He promises to be with us through suffering and hardship, not to spare us from them.'

Philippians 4:12


Romans 3:23-24

Romans 3:23-24 says we have been justified through Christ. You know what the word "justified" means? Made just as if we had never sinned. Amazing!   JM

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 40:31

Isaiah 43:18-19

18 “Forget the former things;

    do not dwell on the past.

19 See, I am doing a new thing!

    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness

    and streams in the wasteland.

"From beginning to end, the way it's always been. Amen." ~ Joe Hall (St. Louis, MO)

Joe Hall 11/1/13

Last night I met Joe Hall, he was homeless and at the Alabama Florida line headed south on a very rainy night. I talked with him and we prayed together. I gave him a little money, but HOPE is hopefully what we both took away from our paths touching. He gave me the best hug and I told him that I loved him, and he said he loved me too. As he walked into the darkness he said I haven't felt that in over six years. He was smiling! He touched my heart and maybe I touched his too.

*  At the very moment I watched Joe walk off into the darkness, I felt that I was doing the exact same thing.  Sometimes, to find brighter days, we have to be willing to venture into the dark.  However, we do not travel alone.  God is with us, and with Him at our side, even the most trying moments that are filled with tears... also include HOPE.  I am hopeful that this season of my life will be one that I can look back on and be proud.  This is hard.  I am so blessed to not be alone!!!  *

It's Raining… :*(
