Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The last few weeks in our church we've been talking about how the enemy tries to distract us. Rather that's with or through things, circumstances, and even people; we are clearly always under attack. Even the things that distract us are actually attacks but often we don't see them that way. Having a conversation with someone helped bring that topic into more focus so let's get straight to it.
What is the enemy using that can blind you to the reality of what it actually may be? In other words, what may be shiny on the surface but rotten in the core? What looks good and glitters but when opened there's nothing there of value? Yes, those are some powerful questions but it...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. God may not show up when you want Him to but He will be there right on time. Chances are you've heard someone say that if you've been saved for any length of time. It's a true phrase for sure and one that can serve to give you hope when you feel weary. As God began to stir that in me for this week's word He also began to show me a few simple but powerful things to go along with it.
Have you ever arrived at a place too early? You get there and no one is there so there's nothing to do but to sit and wait. It's not the most fun one can have and it's very easy to become frustrated. God's timing is not our timing. When we want things we want them as soon as ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I've learned over time on this journey that you can be whatever it is you choose to be. You can be someone who is sincere with God. You can be someone who could care less. You can be hot today and cold tomorrow. God gives you your own choice to make. I've said this before and I'll say it again, having the choice is not the problem. What choice will you make is.
You can choose to pray and you can choose not to. You can choose to study the word of God and you can choose not to. You can choose Christ or you can choose the world. Again, you have a freedom of choice. You also have consequences that come with choice. Lastly, your choices can have affect your eternity. We're not ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week is some serious food for thought so make sure you're honest about your answers. What does God mean to you? Now you may read that and wonder where are we going here but hang in there as this will bless you if you let. The question again is what does God mean to you? What does He mean to your life?
For every answer you say there's a question to follow it. I'll use a few examples here to get you going in the right direction. However, you're going to need to be honest and ask a few questions for yourself. The easiest answer is God is your everything. So would you give up 'your" everything for "His" everything? Would you trade all that matters to ...
