• A Paradigm Shift in the Hand…

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. We all know this one. Basically, this means that what you actually have is worth more than what you could have. You can miss a lot of REAL life while you hold out for a possibility. So let’s tweak that cliché a bit: “It’s […]

  • Does Social Networking Keep Prophets From Honor?

    Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.” Does social networking have the same effect on ministers? Will we begin to see fewer miracles everywhere we go because they know we watched LOST and enjoyed that brownie sundae at Applebees? I think […]

  • Looking Forward to the Amber Rose Conference

    I was just informed last night of this year’s Amber Rose Conference at Shady Grove Church in Grand Prairie, March 4th-6th. Some men from my home group are planning to attend and participate in the healing rooms. We want to see people set free, healed, restored, and experiencing the goodness of our God! What better […]

  • Faith Comes By Hearing

    As you renew your minds, be aware that reading God’s Word, as your only course of action, may not be enough. We will read some Scriptures over and over and over again, and the meaning is lost on us. The reason that’s true is because we hear ourselves read these passages through the lens of […]

  • Paul Charges Timothy to Disciple Others

    On the subject of discipleship, there is no example better than the letters from Paul to Timothy. Through his letters, we glimpse the premiere apostolic standard of mentorship and spiritual fathering. 2And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach […]

  • Changing What You Listen to Could Change Your Life

    I came across this blog post today via Twitter. It so closely mirrored the heart of what I wrote yesterday that I had to give you a taste here. JBMavrich writes of how he spent his daily commute to and from work (read his entire post here): I turned my sights to music, revisiting albums of […]

  • Dwell in the Land

    Something about Psalm 37:3 caught my eye last night. I felt like the Holy Spirit told me to read that chapter, and this particular part stood out. Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. (New International Version) Most of the other translations say something a little different, like: Trust in the […]

  • Removing Strongholds: 30 Days to Liberation

    Strongholds are beliefs that are built upon lies or half-truths. They affect the way we live, the way we hear God, and the way we understand who we are in Christ. Demonic forces don’t have any power over those saved through faith in Jesus. But we can all believe the lies they whisper and find ourselves […]

  • The Miracle of Life and Childbirth

    You probably think that I am about to wax on about the miracle of childbirth. I’m not. Not because it’s not miraculous. It is. I posted this photo because the sight of it struck me so.How do I explain? This is a man whom I respect and admire. He is not perfect. I do not […]

  • Dressing for Church

    It occurred to me the other day that I wear different styles of clothing to church based upon my expectation of the service. When I first accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior ten years ago, I began attending church in a t-shirt and jeans because they were all that I owned. I found that […]
