God’s Way to Success

Hey Jesus Worshippers! I pray your Thanksgiving went well and you enjoyed time with family and friends.

A few weeks ago, I was a guest speaker on a podcast and spoke on the topic of ‘Defining Success Through God’s Standards.’ It was an awesome show and topic and I’ll link the podcast below once it’s available. The topic of the podcast reminded me so much of my journey of learning that God’s definition of success is much different from what the world calls success. I wish I knew then, earlier in my journey, what I know now. Continue reading

Integrity By Design

I’m sure a lot of us can agree that we live in a time where everyone says they are a Christian, everyone goes to church, everyone believes in Jesus, and everyone thinks they are going to heaven. The sad reality is many of the people who call themselves Christians really are not. Many people who profess Christ do not live what they profess; the life they live completely contradicts who they say they are. Continue reading

What I’ve Learned In 3 Years of Marriage

June is a very special month for my husband and I, it was 5 years ago this month that he called me to tell me I was his wife (June 12, 2012), this is the month we got married 3 years ago (June 28, 2014) and it’s also my birthday month (June 20th). So, to celebrate and in honor of our 3rd year anniversary, I decided to do a blog post on relationships this month. Continue reading

Let It ALL Go

In the last few months the Lord has been dealing with me about letting some things go in my personal life. He has also been ministering to me about how as believers we hold on to certain things naturally and spiritually that He wants us to release. Sometimes the cycles we go through emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically are due to the fact that we won’t release things. These things can be emotions, past disappointments, relationships, ungodly habits, and so much more. Often times we can’t move forward in an area or God can’t do certain things in our lives because we are still holding on to these old dead things. I ministered this same topic at a recent women’s meeting at my church and felt led to blog about it as well. Continue reading

Being Humble Where God Has You

A lot of times God will have us in a certain place, situation, or season that we don’t really want to be in. We don’t fully see the purpose of us being there and everything in us fights against the place He has us. It could be a season where things don’t look the way you expected, a time were certain needs or desires haven’t been met, an undesirable living situation, or an extended trial. When God has us in these uncomfortable and unwanted places it’s easy to feel like we should be past it, like we should have moved on by now, or like we just deserve better. Continue reading

Casting Down Thoughts and Imaginations

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I pray your new year started off well and that this will be your greatest year of growth in your walk with God yet.

I believe with each new year we should strive to grow in God by cutting out things that need to be cut out and making the necessary changes for growth. One of the greatest areas I’ve noticed people struggle in the most is in their thought life. Our thoughts are the seeds that determine our actions. Continue reading

Comparison

What is Comparison

Comparison. That thing we do where we look at our life and someone else’s life and judge ourselves based on what we have/don’t have compared to that person… that thing where we judge ourselves as inadequate because we don’t look like, have, or act like someone else we may admire in a certain area. As people, we compare seasons, relationships, possessions, roles, statuses, and so on. But do we really know the negative consequences it has on our walk with God and how God really feels about it? Continue reading

Kingdom Focus

So many things come to pull our attention away from Jesus. Some of those things can be good things and some of them not so good things. Distractions, trials, people, situations, goals, and aspirations are all things that can take away our focus. Anything that has our attention more than Jesus has taken our focus. Continue reading

Eternal Consecration

When most of us hear the word consecration we think it’s something we do for a certain number of days to fast, pray, and seek the Lord. We think it’s something we do from time to time and when it’s over, it’s over. That’s all I thought consecration was too until God began to show me that there’s much more to it than that. Consecration is not just something you do when you go on a major fast; consecration for the true believer is a lifestyle! Once you step into Christ you are eternally consecrated – set aside – to and for Him; totally set aside for the Master’s use and for His use alone. Now don’t get me wrong there is a type of consecration where you get away for a number of days to fast, pray, and really seek the Lord, but that type of consecration ends. But when your heart is eternally consecrated to Christ, this consecration continues forever. Continue reading
