It’s time to clean house spiritually and emotionally in 2013. It’s time to let go of all excuses, negativity and habits that are keeping you from living the way you know you ought to be living for the Lord, and from reaching your full potential in this life. We only get one life so it’s important that we live the best life we can in spite of financial status or other struggles in your life. And it does not cost anything (at least not monetarily) to grow spiritually. All you need is your Bible. Yes, you should go to church. But I’m talking about having one on one time with God daily. It’s time to grow in faith and relationship with the Lord. If you are doing things you know are wrong and separate you from Him, let it go. If you are not spending time with God because you are putting people and things before Him you need to stop. It’s time to get your house in order.
Make a decision, not a new year’s resolution, but a firm decision, that you won’t Continue reading →
People can’t always be trusted. At least not 100% of the time. As imperfect people it is impossible for us to behave perfectly at all times. Most people mean well but because of our imperfections we will always fall short. People break promises, lie, cheat, steal, break hearts, and will sometimes even betray you. That doesn’t mean that you should live your life in fear of being hurt or suspicious of all people. That’s neither a healthy or Godly way to live. But it’s important to never put people in God’s place.

Look to the Lord when times are hard. Often times we want to run from Him and wallow in our pain and despair. We feel as if we are too broken and pathetic to come to Him. But the truth is that He’s waiting for you to stretch out your hand to Him so that He can give you the help you need and lift you up. Now is not the time to run from Him, but to Him.
The Lord is our hope and our strength. He will give us the strength to overcome if we’d only ask Him. So often we have Continue reading →
Most people that come to Christ know that God loves them. They even believe what His Word says about Him loving the whole world. But sometimes it’s hard to get that head knowledge to find it’s way into our hearts, and believe in the deepest part of themselves, deep down in their hearts, that God loves them with all of His.

God is always working to draw the world to Him. God is always pursuing those that don’t know Him, so that He can save them and pour His love on them. It can be hard when there is someone close to us that we have been praying for that seems to be Continue reading →
Nothing that we do for God is in vain. Your life is not a waste. Everything that you have invested into the Kingdom of God matters to God. Everything you have suffered, every tear you have shed as you have gone about your Father’s business will never be in vain. Never stop storing up treasures in Heaven because you feel that your life is worthless, because you feel that it’s not enough.
It’s so easy to get far from God. We allow life to take our attention away from our First Love. We put our careers, marriages, children, entertainment, ambition, relationships and a whole host of other things, into first place.
God speaks to our hearts through the Holy Spirit, but we can know longer hear Him. We’ve allowed life, and sometimes sin, to separate us from God. We stop reading our Bibles. We stop praying. We stop nurturing our relationship with the Lord. Until one day we thirst for Him. Our parched souls need refreshing. But we’re Continue reading →
