Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Last week we were talking about allowing God to be the plow to plot the straight pathway for us. Our responsibility is to simply hold on and follow His lead. If you have not read that then go to the archives section and check it out first before you read this. Let's move on for this week. Once the ground has been tilled and the seed has been planted the next thing for the sower to do is to wait. You can imagine where we're going this week so let's go there.
There is nothing the sower can do to force the time of harvest. However, the sower does not simply do nothing either. In order for the crops to grow once they are planted there are two more things needed in order to reach ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Let's continue to shift the gears a bit here as we've been doing for the last few weeks. The bible talks about no one putting their hands to the plow and looking back is fit for the kingdom of Heaven. What does that mean to you? What does that mean in general terms? It's simply means that once you commit to something with God there is no turning back. Let's dig a bit deeper shall we?
For those of you reading this who are from what we call the country or rural places, you will understand this clearly. For those from city environments, hang in there with me. The plow literally tills the ground. This is a very essential process in terms of farming. You cannot plant any seeds ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Let's turn the corner a bit here this week. I'm going to be taking a different approach but it's for a very good reason.

There are many things in life that it seems are designed to take you from out of your rightful place with God. That's where the conversation leads us to this week. How do you handle negativity from people?
Negativity can be presented in many different forms. There is no set or defined way for it to come to you so we're not even going to try to focus on that this week. Instead, take a look at how you ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. What did you get saved for? Yes, that is a very direct question but your answer is more meaningful than you may realize on the surface. Again, what did you get saved for? What was your reasoning when you gave your life to Christ? Were you tired of the way you were living at the time? Was something missing in your life and you knew it was God? Were you ready to say yes and serve Him? What was your reason for getting saved?
These are questions you should always know the answers when you think about it. They play a big part in your life living at this very moment. If you simply said yes because someone told you that you've tried everything to get through life now try Jesus it can ...
