Welcome again to this week's word for the week. We're going to do something different this week and give a title to the word for the week. We're going to call this week's word Finish the race. I could probably end right here and most of you would clearly know where we are going. However, for the sake of saying we went there let's have a heart to heart discussion.
You always hear me say I've learned a lot of things over the years and it is absolutely true. Many of the things that I've learned have not been through my own trials and tribulations but through those of others. The old saying is still true today. You can learn from the ups and downs of others. With that being said let's talk about something that ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week we are going to shift and take a turn down the road of encouragement. I want to be clear this week that this word may find you in a time when hearing this is critical. You may be on the verge of facing something that you are unaware of and this word will play back in your memory. Whatever the case or your situation, it is my prayer that this word will bless you.
Anyone who has been saved for awhile and has been trying to do the right thing in the sight of God has had to face frustration. Your frustration is not necessarily directed at God and it can come from a multitude of things. Let's face something and be very honest here. It is very hard to press to do the right thing ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There's a season for everything. I'm sure you've heard that phrase before. It is nothing new but it is still very powerful when you think about it. You've heard people say it's your season or your season is coming up. The question is what does that really mean in the big picture of life and how does it apply to you?
In nature there are four distinct seasons. Depending on where you live you will see all of them very clearly. It is not expected to snow in the summer season. It is simply not the season for snow so no one looks for it. Catch where we're going this week because I will be talking about how expectations are tied to seasons. Certain crops are not expected ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The last few weeks we have been jumping straight in to the point so we will continue that again this week. I want to paraphrase a passage of scripture for the sake of clarity and in order to better make the point this week. There is a scripture that says straight and narrow is the road that leads to righteousness and wide and open is the road that leads to destruction.
It doesn't take a lot of thought in order to understand that particular passage of scripture. The road to righteouness will be one that will take effort to stay on. The road that leads to destruction will give you plenty of room in order to get there. That leads us to the heart of the matter for our word this week...
