Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I won't be before you long this week as there are some things you will need to go back and pray about. Everyone of us faces trials and tribulations. So many times we simply say the devil is busy. There are times that is true. There are also times when God is trying to get our attention. We have to be honest and not religious. It is our knowledge of truth that sets us free. Let us seek the truth in our situation.
Here's the point this week. When we pray about our circumstances we usually pray that God will fix the problem. Again, there are times when He is trying to wake us up. So give this some thought. What if you stopped asking God to change your circumstances and instead asked ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The bible says who can harm you if you be followers of that which is good. Yes, I'm paraphrasing the exact wording for the purpose of getting straight to what it means. We face so many things on this road. We go through so many trials and tribulations but the Lord assures us in all of them. We shall reap if we faint not. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers them from them all. The Lord will never leave or forsake you. The list goes on.
What does all of this mean to you on a personal level? Let's be honest here for a moment. Have you ever wondered where is your faith when you go through "certain" things? I emphasize the word certain because we ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. What do you hope to get out of this journey of walking with Christ? That may sound like a trick question but it's not. What are you really looking to get out of this? It sounds like an easy answer and it should be but it's not always the case for everyone. There are so many distractions around us in this world until if we're not careful we can easily be swayed off course. Does it have to be this way? Of course not but there are choices we must make.
The bible tells us to be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in us. We have to do more than just walk around and say God will make a way. We have to do more than just say he's a good God. That makes sense to those are ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. While driving today I thought about how frustrating it was to have to evacuate yet again. It seems these storms are affecting us with more regularity than ever before. So, I was having one of those "Lord this is getting old" chats and of course God will always show you something powerful if you simply listen. Well, here we go and prayerfully this is a blessing to all during this storm.
We can evacuate from a hurricane with enough warning. God has enabled us to be able to track weather storms like hurricanes before they reach us. That gives us time to move out of the way. But what do we do with the storms of life? Those come without warning. There are no tracking devices and no ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Have you ever thought on one hand you wish things would speed up and then on the other hand you wish they would slow down? Have you ever thought one more you wish something would happen and then at the same time wish there was more time? While that may sound confusing to some there are many people who can clearly identify with what I just said. The point is very simple. Sometimes we don't know what we really want.
Let's go further here. God showed up to Solomon and told him to ask whatever he wanted and it would be done. Essentially, that was the equivalent of God giving Solomon a blank check. Everyone would love that but if that check is only good for one thing what would you ...
