God Wants Your Heart
Many are faithful in service, moral in practice, yet far from God, bitter, burnt out and bored. God wants more than service, He wants your heart. Return to His feet. Soak in His presence. Like a vessel broken open before Him, pour out your heart to Him and begin practicing His presence again.
The Ugly Truth About Judgment and Criticism
With judgment, criticism, and man’s opinion dominating the world we live in, let’s look at what the Bible says about that matter!
Don’t live for the “Likes” – don’t feed on the number of “Followers” – don’t sell your soul for more “Subscribers” – do you hear me!? STOP looking to man for approval! Live for GOD!

“You are Goats” – A Journey Into the Heart
Keep a pure heart as you walk in relationship with God, and live in the assurance that His grace is filling in the gaps of your growth. Just keep growing!
The Lure of a Mediocre Life
What is it about change, impact, influence, growth – GREATNESS…that is so intimidating? Why is mediocrity so alluring? It’s comfortable. It doesn’t require a lot of stretching. It’s well known and familiar. It’s easy to hide in mediocrity. Growth requires risk. Influence requires accountability. Change requires WORK. Let’s get started.
God’s Love for the Unloved
The love of God is the greatest force in this universe. God is love, and He has manifested His love to us in the person of Jesus. You know, when Jesus walked this earth, He was (and still is) a reflection of the Father's heart toward us. When we look at Jesus, we see...
You’ve only got one life to live. Don’t let deadlines and “to-do” lists drag you through it. You can still be productive – sometimes more productive – when you “stop and smell the roses.” Memories aren’t made in the “busy-ness” of life, but in the moments that we choose to make special.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
Jesus is always, ALWAYS inviting us to come – to come out further, to wade in deeper, to trust in greater measure. He invites us to a life of faith adventures! He invites us to follow Him wherever He leads. We are not promised an easy life, but we are guaranteed victory in every faith fight!

Know Your Season
Don’t let your desire to finally “arrive” at your future destination rob you of the joy in every step that it takes to get you there! You can cast the vision, you can write it down and make it plain, you can talk about your future and God’s plan for your family; but, the only way you will see the future vision come to pass in your life is to wake up to your present reality every day, and make a decision to live – really LIVE – in that moment with joy & thanksgiving in your heart, doing what God has called you to do, in the place He has called you to be TODAY.
Break Free & Step Into Your Destiny
YOU are uniquely designed for a God-given purpose. There is no doubt about it. There is no other person exactly like you in this universe. So why do we compare ourselves, belittle our gifts, talents and abilities, and come to the conclusion that what we have to offer would be insignificant or trivial at best?
You Are Loved
So I have been in hibernation the last few weeks because I ran smack dab into the middle of God's love, and I haven't wanted to do anything but soak up what He was so eagerly waiting to pour out on me! I am telling you my friends, when you get a revelation of how much...
What Are You Looking At?
Without the right perspective we can become overwhelmed by all that is taking place around us.
Have you ever thought about how hard it can be to find your way out of a maze when you are walking around inside of it, and on the flip side, how easy that same task can become when you have an aerial view? Why? What has changed? Perspective.
When Children Won’t Listen
