Thought for the day. What would happen if we really believed this? How would our thoughts and actions change? They would change radically! God is for us. God is for YOU. He is in our corner….our guide, advocate, Father, and helper. Picture Him with you. Because He is! The more you practice His presence, the more… Continue reading If? Not if. Definitely not.
One of my favorite pastors used to say, "there is a brilliant moment in every Christian's life where their faith intersects with God's faithfulness."

This is THE leap of faith. Brilliance below.
Wow! Today I attended the second of a Beth Moore Bible study called Breath. It's about the Holy Spirit. Today's lesson was on creativity and it was amazing. While I can relate to Beth when it comes to country accents (and overcoming life challenges) I can do her teaching no justice. But to not share a few… Continue reading Created for Creativity. Are you?
Do you have these kind of friends?

Not just for the 60’s. Today’s pick of the day.

Your inner voice speaks through your past and filters situations through the lessons life… Continue reading Past to present. What to do when discipline and discernment collide.
