For the last 3 weeks I was feeling depressed and discouraged. I was having thoughts like: “My life is over, no one cares, and my ministry is over. Why can't I make these thoughts go away? Where did those thoughts come from? It felt like a dark cloud was hanging over me. I needed to do something, and fast, because I felt like I was going deep into depression. But just in time, my spirits were lifted and hope began to rise up inside me. My little brother, who I've only talked to 3 times in 4 years, texted me. I was shocked because he said to me once I don't text nor do I answer text messages. He texted me this: Psalm 91 -what keeps me humble but strong for years and for years to come. Something lifted after I read that scripture. My brother had no idea I was in a spiritual battle. The devil was prowling seeking to devour me. When we find ourselves dealing with negative thoughts about ourselves, pick up the sword, the word of God. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:10-18 You and I are not in this alone. The great I AM is with us! #webelongtothelord
Men & women who understand their true identity are less selfish. Being free from insecurity allows us to serve and offer the world what only we can. We are closest to and most like Jesus when we are fully being who He created us to be. You can embrace who you are and who God created you to be. You’re a warrior and overcomer. You serve a big God! It’s time to know who you are in Christ. It’s time to discover our true identities. It’s time for us to really believe we’re already amazing.
The 50/50 Plan is destined to fail for several reasons: 1. Acceptance is Based on Performance. 2. Giving is Based on Merit. 3. Motivation for Action is Based on How Each Partner Feels. 4. Each Spouse has a Tendency to Focus on the Weakness of the Other. What a marriage needs is the Super Glue of Philippians 2:3: “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself.” It’s what we refer to as the 100/100 Plan, which requires a 100 percent effort from each of you to serve your spouse. A bit of grace always helps too.
Complain: As believers we are challenged not to grumble or complain rather, we are to love one another deeply so that we may become blameless and pure in God’s eyes. If we grumble and complain, it shows how worldly we still are. Blame: The first man, caught in the first sin, turns to blame his wife. Adam implies that he would have remained innocent if God hadn’t put Eve in the garden with him. The blame-shifting in the Garden continues today. We are looking for someone else to point to when confronted with our own sin. Grateful: One thing I absolutely love about Thanksgiving, besides the amazing food is that it causes me to think about how grateful I am.

There are many godless guides who would lead us to the wide gate and the way which leads to destruction. These false teachers are not only blind themselves, but they lead others to destruction with them. It is the Lord Who will pronounce the final verdict and Who will sentence the false prophets to everlasting torment. Read Matthew 7:13-23
God-ordained, covenant relationship between a man and a woman. This lifelong, sexually exclusive relationship brings children into the world and thus sustains the stewardship of the earth. As witnesses to the truth, Christians should be gracious and compassionate to those who do not share their views on marriage, while remaining faithful to the word of God. #compassionwithoutcompromise
There is not one person who will avoid some sort of struggle or hardship in life. In fact, there are things that happen in life that often shake us to our very core. You can’t see your way out of it, let alone focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Life never hands out things that you can’t handle. Through darkness comes light, through fear comes love and through pain comes triumph.
