Often, we go through our lives and somehow lose sight of our "way"- our goals, dreams, and aspirations. We forget about the dreams we once dreamed about and planned to accomplish. We stop hoping and stop living our lives and "fall" into a complacent pattern that never seems to cease. TODAY, I would like to encourage you to rededicate yourself. Rededicate yourself to God. Rededicate yourself to those dreams you once dreamed, to those plans you once talked about, to those aspirations that once filled your…Read more
Choose God's Way
We are living in a time right now where there are so many choices to choose from. There is a little something for everyone's taste. If someone disagrees with a particular principle, they can choose another that will fit their own desires. I know the saying "Choose God's Way" sounds like a cliche, but it is more than just that. The word "choose" means that there is a choice that can be made. You have the opportunity to make up your own mind, and it is your responsibility to choose wisely. God has a way-…Read more
James 4: 10 states, "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up" (NIV). As we approach this new year, my prayer is that each one of us will do the "self-inventory" check. Have we done the things God has told us to do in 2011? Have we loved and treated our neighbors as God would have us to do? Have we allowed God to change our "worldview" of how we view ourselves and others? Before we go into this new year, truly pray and seek God for direction in your life. Humble your opinions, your…Read more
About a month or so ago, I had lost something that, at the time, had meant a lot to me--- my new ipod touch. I had spent a lot of money on it and was enjoying all the perks that came along with having one. One day I was in a rush and wasn't paying attention and couldn't remember where I last had it. Well, I had written it off as a loss, but I kept hearing this gentle voice (God) telling me that it was not lost but was in my house. Before my trip to Japan, I would've been upset about having lost it, but I…Read more
It's Going To Happen!
Tonight, something happened in my life...like an epiphany. Earlier in the day, God had laid it on my heart to begin preaching again weekly on my radio show like I was doing before I had left to go on tour to Japan. I had responded, "Lord, I don't feel like preaching...This stuff I'm going through right now is wearing me out...Perhaps I can preach on Thursday." (Now, for those of you who don't know, I've been called to preach.) So, my day went along, and God really opened some doors for me today. Tonight, I…Read more
Learning To Be Free
One of the things we always love is to hear the story of the butterfly---how it starts out crawling and then builds its' own cocoon and then transforms and eventually breaks free and flies away as a butterfly. It sounds great, right?!! Well, the same thing can be said of our own lives. We are born as babies, raised and groomed by our parents, and then grow up and leave our families and start our own families...And that cycle goes on and on. We, as human beings, can be free and fly just like the butterfly…Read more

Your Sunrise Will Come!
It seems like a lot of people are in this "holding" place, somewhere between their goals...somewhere in between darkness and hope. I just would like to encourage you to keep going on--that the BEST is YET to come! God's already paved the way for you. You just have to trust Him with all of your being...with everything that's in you. Don't lose hope. Don't let your heart faint from anxiety. He, Who began a good work, is FAITHFUL to complete that work in you. So, although you might not be where you'd like to…Read more
Finding Solace In 1
A young boy once asked his mother how she could remain calm with everything that was going on around them, and she responded to him, "I put all my trust in God. He WILL take care of us. He won't forsake us!" Then years passed by and that young boy grew up, became a man, and had challenges of his own. Like his parents, he would have trials and tribulations and would have highs and lows, but one thing he always held onto was the example of faith he saw and experienced while growing up. You, yourself…Read more
Get The Lesson!
Sometimes, we, like the Israelites in the Bible, keep having to go around the same thing or situation time after time after time. And, we often ask the Lord why are we going through this over and over again. I just want to encourage you to "Get The Lesson!" Whatever it is that you're going through, learn the lesson you are supposed to learn, whether it is dealing with relationships/ friendships, finances, work, etc. In every part of your life, through every situation or even hardship, ask the Lord to…Read more
