In ______ We Trust.

We live in a world where everything's instantaneous. I'LL BE HONEST. It's nice having things right away and not have to wait. We have smart phones, computers, TVs and other devices that work faster than our minds can fathom! Many of us are surrounded by people who love us dearly, and won't hesitate to come to our rescue when something goes wrong. There's more security in cars now because of the many features built-in that are accessible just by starting the ignition. We get a sense of sec...

The Call To ACTIVELY Trust God

I never liked being disappointed. When I was a little girl, I had high expectations for everything promised to me. If anyone ever said they would do something for me or give me something, especially if they used the words "I PROMISE", I banked on them to come through. I FULLY expected them to deliver what they promised in a reasonable amount of time, and if they didn't, my feelings were CRUSHED. Why? I had high expectations. I believed in them and I trusted that they would come through with thei...

He’s Waiting…Will You Let Him?

"My child, I've been waiting for you. You've met Me informally. You know that I'm holy, eternal, and righteous. You know that I'm all-powerful and all-knowing, but I'm so much more than that. I've been waiting to really show you who I am; I've been waiting to give you all of Me. We were separated because of sin, but I had to find a way to bring you back to Me; you are worth the sacrifice. I even proved how much I love you by sending My Son to bear EVERY sin upon Himself so that yo...

BE STILL.

We're all born with a free will, right? We all want things in life, and honestly, there's nothing wrong with that. God wants to see His people prosper. Why? He takes pleasure in us. Psalm 147:11 reads, "The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy." The earth and everything in it is His gift to us. He provides us with a glimpse of His glory through the works of His hands. Psalm 19:1 states, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiw...

Creflo A. Dollar’s “Pursuing the Promises of God”

I found these steps from Creflo Dollar's Facebook page, Creflo A. Dollar, on pursuing God's promises, and I thought I'd share them with you.

A Daily Encounter With BROKENNESS…My Testimony.

For many years, I didn't think I had a testimony. I grew up in church and I was what they called a "good girl", but what you're about to read is my story.Here's my moment to be transparent with you about how God intentionally dealt with me in my complacent state of mind. I pray that as you read, you'll open your heart to receive what God may have to tell you through me. A DAILY ENCOUNTER WITH BROKENNESS...MY TESTIMONY.

Do You Know The God You Serve?

Many of us have suffered a great deal of losses this year already, but I just want to be an encouragement to EVERYBODY who has lost someone dear to them, or even if you're just going through something...including myself. These are the times when we (Christians) must take our eyes off the situation and focus on who our God is. In 1 Samuel 30, David and his men suffered greatly. the Amalekites took captive the people who were in Ziklag, including David and his mens' wives, sons...

You’re Already Free…Just Accept Your Freedom!

It's not about what we can prove to Jesus, or what we can do to make things better. God is already satisfied with the finished work of Jesus Christ. He traded His perfection for our sin, died, and rose with all power, conquering sin and death. We're set free! Be FREE! We are no longer a slave to sin. We are no longer who we used to be. We are now the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God. We are His heirs! EMBRACE IT! It's the FREE gift of salvation :)

"There is ther...

We’re More Than Conquerors!

It's not the style of his music, the arrangement of his songs, nor the uniqueness of his voice that caught my attention. It is rather the message behind what he sings that is evident in the lyrics that "draw all men" to the Light (Jesus Christ) that shines in him (John 12:32). Mali Music did a concert at the National Conference that Impact Movement hosted this past December, and I had the privilege of being exposed to the Gospel through his music. I had only heard one song by Mali Music before t...
