True Peace

image (3)

John 14:27 (NIV84) 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. Just like everything else this world offers us, it is the opposite of what God has to offer us. Our enemy the devil has his own versions that are very good imitations of the things God wants to give us. The enemy works really hard to get us to spend all of our time chasing after these counterfeits instead of seeking the real … [Read more...]

Drawn towards broken people

I recently read these statistics: “If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep … you are richer than seventy-five percent of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … you are among the top eight percent of the world’s wealthy.” How many luxuries do we have that we so often take for granted? Let us consider our gifts and say, “Thanks!, I appreciate it, and I am grateful”. From the time … [Read more...]

Flawed Women Who Serve a Flawed God

It's so easy to read stories in the Bible quickly, get the gist of the story, pull maybe one of two things out of it and move on. I am guilty of this for sure. I have read the story of Sarai and Hagar and Leah and Rachel dozens of times. This weekend though, I got a completely different perspective on who these women were. The last weekend in Feburary, my mother, sister, a few relatives and some of my mothers close friends joined 300 other women from the tri-state area for the women's … [Read more...]

Why I Hate Religion

This video made its way around the internet a few years ago. I remember seeing it on someones Facebook page and sharing it back them. It has found its way to me so I thought I would share it yet again. It's only a four minute video but it says a lot. I know so many close friends and family who have been hurt by religion. So many people turned off to JESUS because they see what damage RELIGION can do. Religion has started wars, turned people against each other, spewed hate and condemned. … [Read more...]

Marketing Your Christian Business

512px-Marketing_strategy

If you are a Christian in business, any type of business, you are actually in the ‘Marketing Business.’ No matter what is the nature of the business, be it Graphic Design, Estate Agency, Ministry work, I.T., Business Start-up’s, Consultancy or ‘Handy Man’; you can’t get away with the fact that your primary activity is Marketing. Without effective Marketing you are ‘up a creek and without a paddle!’ You are tossed to a fro by every wind of market conditions and are unable to make wise … [Read more...]

extra-milling: the untold version of joseph’s tale

One of my favorite authors is Malcolm Gladwell. He is a terrific writer and I just love the way he writes his stuff. I recently stumbled upon his latest work I believe, which is David and Goliath and having read just the introductory chapter, I was amazed once again how he brought me to see another perspective on the famous bible tale of the dwarf who slayed the giant. I’ll be doing something similar to that today with the story of Joseph of the bible; the young Hebrew boy who went to a … [Read more...]

“Don’t Judge Me!”

How many times have we heard this? How many times have we said this!? Probably more times than we can keep track of! I’ve seen many times, people enter into conversations over a specific subject. Let’s take a HYPOTHETICAL situation. Again, this is purely hypothetical and in no way directed at another distinct individual: —————————— Billy goes out on Saturday night and parties hard! He spends time with his friends and drinks it up! Shot after shot! He’s having a great time! Billy meets Sally … [Read more...]

Operating in Kingdom Authority-I

  Greetings Friends, you are blessed and highly favored always!  Today, I want to invite, inspire, and encourage you to step into your God-given realm of power and authority!        Everything in God's Kingdom is in direct opposition to the world.  For example:  to live, we first must die to old habits, desires, and our flesh.  To receive, we must first give.  To bring us out, God brings us in- out of the shadows, to be a lamp and a light to the world.          However, once you begin to … [Read more...]
