Sometimes we get our hopes and expectations up and then God whispers a “Not Yet” in our inner ear. Disappointment and despair try to settle in because you believe in your heart of hearts that THIS time manifestation has come, this time the fruit will show up, this time… Your response to the NOT YET [...]

Grace is the power of God working in your life. When we allow God’s power, God’s guidance, and God’s favor to be the driving force in our lives, we are able to sit and rest in His plan, His way, and His timing. When we “drive”, God sits down and we are on a freeway [...]
It is not your job to “convince” anyone what God is doing in your life. It is not your job to “explain” to anyone why you are making radical, unorthodox, and life-transforming decisions. It is not your job to “justify” your dreams, hopes, and beliefs. It is not your job to “pull” people along with [...]
I spent the entire day in bed on Saturday and got back into bed after church on Sunday! Who would have guessed that a full day and a half in bed was just what the doctor ordered? I certainly didn’t! Every time I made up my mind to get up and do something, a voice [...]

If were to challenge you to a life of “withholding nothing,” what would it look like to you? Not in theory, but in reality. Does the thought free you to dream impossible dreams or does it trap you in a pond of quicksand? As I sat at my table this morning and reflected over that phrase, [...]
This morning I read that “In quietness (spending time alone with God) and confident trust (relying on God’s sufficiency) is your strength.” I wish I could tell you that being still and getting quiet before God was easy for me, but it is not. It has nothing to do with not wanting to, not knowing how vitally important it [...]
Have you ever felt like God was chasing you down with one word? Everywhere you looked and everywhere you turned that one word was before you. You open your Bible; it’s there. You turn on the television; it’s there. You have a conversation with someone you love and trust, and there it goes again. Well, [...]
It’s a special day when you can look back and not only see God’s signature on a situation but to be able to sense His presence. So often we become so overwhelmed with all of our “to do’s” that we fail to simply look back, look up, and render “Thank You’s!” Thank you for the [...]
