“I am saying to the PRISONERS of DARKNESS…Come out!  I am giving you your FREEDOM!” Isaiah 49:9   I’ve been a prisoner of darkness. I know what it’s like to be depressed….for years! I feel your pain. I hurt for you!  And I know about DELIVERANCE from depression!   I was held in that prison […]

  I have a couple of situations that I’ve been praying about for quiet sometime…and it seems like “nothing is happening!”  God spoke these words to my heart…“Remove the Doubt!”   It made me think. “Am I doubting?”  Is there a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction for what I am praying for?  Do […]


Still Pressing…

  “I PRESS toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:14-16   If we are still pressing, that means we haven’t arrived yet. We are reaching, pushing, advancing – we are drawing nearer to the goal of becoming like Jesus.  It’s about constant progress!   Through […]

Several things have come to me as I’m praying for alcoholics.  For family members trying to help someone struggling with alcohol, go to ALAnon meetings.  This will help you and open your eyes to see what you all are dealing with…and… they have resources.  It will be support for YOU as you walk through this […]

  How well do you represent Jesus?  Do your actions and words represent Him? If someone watching you saw your lifestyle, would they see Jesus? People are watching, you know.   Too many people in the world see hypocrisy. Insincere Christians – pretense.  So called “Christians” acting like the world.  Many people call themselves “Christian” […]

What does loyalty mean to you? Loyalty is faithfulness, trustworthiness, reliability, dependable, steadfastness, commitment, dedication.  Loyalty is much more than just being faithful not to cheat on someone.   Let’s evaluate our loyalties…to our spouse, family, friends, church, and our missions.   True Loyalty The true definition for loyalty is God. I call it “Royalty […]


Am I Listening? Really Listening?

We want God to talk to us… but are we listening?  Really listening?   No one listens to us better than God…and no one speaks to us more than God, if we are listening for His Voice. His Voice is His Word. He speaks to us more than we realize… through impressions, seeming “coincidences,” (but […]


What SEEMS Impossible?

God gives His children God Dreams!  Do you have a big dream? a God-given dream?   I’m not talking about your dream of being married or owning a new house.  I’m talking about GOD DREAMS…His purpose for your life! When I talk to people about their purpose, many say “I don’t know what my purpose […]

A lens is a piece of glass or other transparent substance with curved sides for concentrating or dispersing light rays, used singly (as in a magnifying glass) or with other lenses (as in a telescope).  The light-gathering device of a camera, typically containing a group of compound lenses.   When we look at other people, […]

Sitting on the back porch during my Quiet Time this morning…I felt God’s Presence.  It was as if He was sitting in the chair next to me. I talk to Him as if He is sitting there…because He is. He is my Friend – “a Friend that sticks closer than a brother”.  A Friend that […]
