Micah 4:13

Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

Kiss The Wave

What is the wave you're running from? Stop! Turn & face it! Hardship drives us beyond ourselves into the power & provision of God!

When God's People Mean Business!!!

Seek to Bless

Hospitality. It picks up the house, but doesn’t feel the need to conceal evidence of everyday life. It sometimes sits down to dinner with flour in its hair. It allows the gathering to be shaped by the quality of the conversation rather than the cuisine. Hospitality shows interest in the thoughts, feelings, pursuits and preferences of the guests. It asks questions and listens intently to answers. Hospitality focuses attention on others.

Entertaining is always thinking about the next course. Hospitality burns the rolls while listening to a story.

Entertaining obsesses over what went wrong. Hospitality savors what was shared.

Entertaining, exhausted, says "It was nothing, really!" Hospitality thinks it was nothing. Really.

Entertaining seeks to impress. Hospitality seeks to bless.

Do Something Wonderful

Have you ever noticed when the weather report says that there's storms coming people prepare for it, they run to the store to buy milk, bread, etc. With all of the signs of the Lord's return, there are still people going on their day to day routines with no preparation for eternity.

Our Lord Jesus perfectly understands your struggle and cares deeply for you in your storm. But He also perfectly understands God's will – praying for that to be activated in your storm! Don't you love Jesus for this? He understands you completely and is praying that God will achieve His purpose for the trials and deliver you through them.

We all go through difficult seasons and trials; times when we want to see the invisible arms of the One who says He will catch us; times when we are afraid to fall into them.






Just Imagine

We often seek counsel from trusted friends before taking our concerns to the Lord. Perhaps deep down we feel we need someone with skin who can help us audibly process our problems. 

Godly friends are wonderful sources of wisdom and care. But rather than spread our troubles out among several friends, we need to spread them out before the One and only God first.

Embrace Who God Created You to Be
