WAKE UP WITH PC!!! March 2019

March 19, 2019
When I try to get God to conform to my will, misery follows, but when I change my behavior and life patterns to dwell in His will, joy and contentment are the result. Let us seek His face today!
March 18, 2019
If my friendship with you requires me to abandon my convictions and wholeheartedly accept yours, then you don’t want a friend, you want a slave. We can disagree and still be friends but we may not be able to live together. Let love guide us, in other words let us do all things with the love of Christ.
March 17, 2019
The choice is simple but often not easy. We can stand with the world or we can stand with Jesus. I choose Jesus!
March 16, 2019
The Word of God is true and must be our guide. Our society has lost it’s way, we must follow Jesus for He is the only Way!
March 15, 2019
We will face challenges in life, what will we do with them? With God before us, no trial can overwhelm us. We can face them head on and know that we are victorious in Christ regardless of the outcome!
March 14, 2019
If we are waiting for some other person to “complete” us and that other person isn’t Jesus, we will be disappointed. Nothing against those other folks but there is only One who saves and transforms. Take some time with Him today!
March 13, 2019
Parenting is the most difficult blessing we will ever undertake…prayer, patience, perseverance and love are the main ingredients that can result in a caring adult.
March 12, 2019
If you woke up today, you received a gift from God. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, so live today to the fullest!
March 11, 2019
When we look at the crumbling state of society around us, it’s natural to think that we are helpless to change it…Not true! Our prayers can be the seeds of another great awakening that can transform our world!
March 10, 2019
As we seek the Lord in prayer, we are no longer just guessing at our decisions.
March 9, 2019
If our lofty words and aspirations are not built upon love we are merely making noise. Let all we do stand on a foundation of divine love!
March 8, 2019
We are not all gifted with amazing talents, but we all have a gift that can make an incredible difference. Take some time today to encourage someone. Your words will truly bless their journey!
March 7, 2019
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. These are the fruits that should be displayed in the life of the believer. If we aren’t bearing these fruits, no wonder the world isn’t interested.
March 6, 2019
Today begins Lent, a season of refining our faith, a time where we sacrifice self indulgences so that we may rely more on the power and presence of God. What will you do to press in closer to God?(rhetorical question, don’t tell me but make sure you let God know)
March 5, 2019
If we truly love someone we will tell them the truth and risk their scorn rather than let them make a decision that will bring eventual heartache and pain to them.
March 4, 2019
When you have a monumental task ahead of you, pray first, then tackle it, one step at a time!
March 3, 2019
Lord, teach us how to disagree but still communicate with civility.
March 2, 2019
Attacking those who disagree with you doesn’t make you look more right only more angry.
March 1, 2019
The only way for me to love others is to see them through the eyes of Jesus!

WAKE UP WITH PC!!! February

February 26, 2019
Divine love evokes empathy for those that are hurting. Lord give us hearts of compassion and courageous love!
February 25, 2019
When all else fails, You are still God. Some trust in horses, some trust in chariots but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. May the name of Jesus be lifted high, He is our hope!
February 24, 2019
The only way to defeat the enemy that prowls around this world is to remain constant in prayer. Pray for revival!
February 23, 2019
In these days of division and doubt we need more than ever to become a people of prayer! Let us pray against the spirit of confusion that grips this world. Lord, may Your Truth set us free!
February 22, 2019
Lord, let Your Light chase away the darkness that pervades our land. Rescue us with Your mighty hand!
February 21, 2019
There is much confusion, leading folks into much pain. Lord, shine Your Light that we would be able to follow Your path!
February 20, 2019
The seductive voice of the world leads to emptiness, the Voice of Truth leads to joy. Which will we listen to?
February 19, 2019
When we succumb to the ways of this world, we hinder our ability to hear and follow God. Turn from this world and turn to Jesus!
February 18, 2019
When was the last time you stopped for 1 minute and recognized 10-15 joys in your life? Too often we focus on the negatives, count some of your blessings and then thank God for them!
February 17, 2019
With the cacophony of voices that bombard us daily, how do we hear the voice of God? There is no substitute for prayer and reading the Word, this is how we will distinguish His voice!
February 16, 2019
Constructive criticism presented correctly is a gift not an attack!
February 15, 2019
There’s an old song…”On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is shifting sand”…what are you standing on today my friend. Jesus is a firm and trustworthy foundation!
February 14, 2019
I wonder what would happen if believers only posted positive God honoring social media remarks?
February 13, 2019
When you feel like giving up, turn to Jesus. Though the world may seem against you, He is for you!
February 12, 2019
It is through the tribulations that we experience the presence of God most tangibly. Don’t go looking for those trials but don’t run from them either. Gods grace is sufficient for us!
February 11, 2019
Jesus understands our failings, He knows our imperfections, He loves us anyway! Actually, it is our failures that qualify us to be used mightily by Him. Think about what a powerful witness it is to the transforming power of Jesus when our lives are turned around.
February 10, 2019
Wrong has become right and right has become wrong, Loving Lord, we need you to rescue this confused world! Start with me!
February 9, 2019
God knew us before we were even conceived, we are precious in His sight. Pray for our land that has wandered so far from Gods love. Lord revive us again!
February 8, 2019
The greatest foe in believing that Jesus is our Savior and Lord is our desire to be deity ourselves. As long as I am on the throne, Christ can’t dwell there. Recognition and acceptance of His Lordship sets us on the path to indescribable joy. Christ is risen!
February 7, 2019
When we turn ourselves over to hate it becomes a consuming cancer. When we turn to the Lord of Light, His love is the cure!
February 6, 2019
The way to build friendships is to look for common ground. It seems like today many are too busy looking for disagreements to practice the art of congeniality.
February 5, 2019
There are so many people that have invested in our lives to help us become who we are. Thank God for them today and then be that person to someone else!
February 4, 2019
Letting go and letting God doesn’t mean we should stop praying!
February 3, 2019
The older I get, the more I realize how far I fall short of Gods best. My (our) only hope is in Christ Jesus, Lord have mercy!
February 2, 2019
One of the tragedies of the social media age is a false sense of friendship “connections”. This is resulting in loneliness and isolation. Invest more in real “in person” relationships and experience true and satisfying friendship!
February 1, 2019
Just because we don’t agree on everything doesn’t mean I don’t love you. When did disagreement become enemy status. Lord, teach us how to play in the sandbox together!

January 31, 2019
Let’s start a love revolution to overwhelm and replace the hatred that pervades our society today. You can join by making a decision to be positive and prayerful in all that you do!
January 30, 2019
Who is shaping our world view? Let us seek to develop the mind of Christ!
January 29, 2019
The only hope for a society that cannot differentiate between good and evil is a Holy Spirit led Revival. Let us pray intensely for that to occur!
January 28, 2019
Spending time throughout the day praying is the first step to all kinds of healing!
January 27, 2019
You are precious in the Lords eyes! The world may not affirm you, but our God delights in your life and loves being with you. Take time today to seek out the One who loves you the most!
January 26, 2019
Success in the walk of a Jesus follower is in the following of Jesus, it’s as simple as that.
January 25, 2019
When we are faced with adversity, do we run from it or do we stare it down and do what it takes to push through? God will help us if we ask!
January 24, 2019
If we believe that God made us, doesn’t it make sense to get to know the One who has our blueprints in His mind? Only as we become friends with our Creator will truly find out who we are!
January 23, 2019
“If the Son sets you free, you are really free!” John 8:36 How many people do you know that are really free? The world has its chains wrapped around so many…come to Jesus and He will break you free of those chains!
January 22, 2019
When your life comes near the end, will you like Paul be able to say…”I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Or will you say, if only….or I wish I would have…..??
January 21, 2019
Before you jump on the bandwagon, you should probably know what the band is playing and what they really stand for.
January 20, 2019
What will you do with the gift called today? Will you squander it or seize it and make a difference. Here’s an idea, check in with Jesus for advice!
January 19, 2019
Many believers make worship part of their weekly or daily routine, I want to strive to live a life of worship to God with every aspect subservient to that goal.
January 18, 2019
Let us start a revolution which replaces phone interaction with face to face, heart to heart connecting. I’m not saying, throw away the phone, I’m encouraging good old fashioned “in person” friendship building!
January 17, 2019
I think one of the greatest draws that Jesus exhibited during His 33 year ministry on earth must have been his “genuine-ness”. When people see us as His followers, do they perceive that same quality?
January 16, 2019
We are so used to people failing us that we are tempted to apply those attributes to God. Friend, Jesus will never fail you when you place your life in His hands!
January 15, 2019
Reacting in anger causes damage, responding in love brings peace!
January 14, 2019
Lord, remove our agendas that we might seek and know Your will!
January 13, 2019
Let us be the light today for someone who is stumbling in the darkness!
January 12, 2019
If we desire the accolades of the world, we will abandon the favor of God. Who do we choose to please? For me…God always!
January 11, 2019
So many people looking for love, stop looking elsewhere and find transforming love in the person of Jesus Christ!
January 10, 2019
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” Are you seeking the truth, or do you want your ears tickled by people who agree with you? Seek Jesus and know the Truth!
January 9, 2019
Sometimes it’s one day at a time, sometimes it’s one minute at a time. The key is…stay close to Jesus all of the time!
January 8, 2019
When we walk away from Jesus, where can we go? He is the Creator, Sustainer and Savior of the world, where else is there?
January 7, 2019
With all the voices trying to get our attention, there’s only One that really matters. Are we listening to Him?
January 6, 2019
Life isn’t always going to be easy, keep moving forward, if you get knocked down…get back up. Those defeats can be stepping stones, don’t let them become stumbling blocks. Remember, God is always here for you, reach out to Him!
January 5, 2019
If you are a Christ follower, did you know that Jesus prays for you? That’s right….you, take comfort and confidence in His prayers! Check out John chapter 17, Jesus mentions you!
January 4, 2019
Friendship is a wonderful treasure to give or receive. Every day is an opportunity to deepen those friendships and grow new ones!
January 3, 2019
We need never be lonely for the Lord is with us and if He isn’t enough, (He is but sometimes we need someone more tangible)we are surrounded by His church. Don’t isolate, join up!
January 2, 2019
Let us replace selfishness with selflessness, greed with generosity, judgement with mercy and hatred with love! Jesus, we need Your help!
January 1, 2019
In the new year I’m going to try to keep my eyes focused on Jesus regardless of where the world is looking!

December 30, 2018
Sometimes we fall short, that’s not the time to give up. Get back up and keep on trying, in the long run victory will be achieved!
December 29, 2018
The best way to succeed with a group of people is to build a team. Everyone has a different role, but the team has a singular goal. If you make Jesus the coach, then success will be accompanied with enjoyment, even fun!
December 28, 2018
As we look toward the New Year, let us linger a moment to count our many blessings!
December 27, 2018
The news media concentrates on so much negativity, why not look for the uplifting stories that will inspire and encourage? Maybe that’s why so many of us enjoy the original “Good News”. Read the Gospels today!!
December 26, 2018
When Jesus was born it was in a dirty, dark stable. When we are born again it is into the glorious light of the presence of God. His sacrifice enters us into His paradise.
December 25, 2018
Celebrate the greatest gift of all…for unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given and the government will rest upon His shoulders. And He shall be called….Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
December 24, 2018
Lord, restore the excitement of Christmas that we experienced as children, but Jesus, You be the gift that we’ve anticipated!
December 23, 2018
For the believer, faithfulness equates to success.
December 22, 2018
This day is a gift from God, let us unwrap it and live it fully for Him!
December 21, 2018
Your life has the potential to affect many others today. Will you encourage them or discourage them. I’m going to try to give them Jesus!
December 20, 2018
Hatred blinds us, taking away our ability to reason. We must invite the Lord of Love and Light to extinguish any hatred in our hearts. Then we can be incredible instruments in His hands!
December 19, 2018
“Peace on earth, goodwill to humankind”. How is your internal peace doing? Without peace in us, it is very difficult if not impossible to have goodwill toward others. Jesus is the Prince and Provider of peace, come closer to Him today!
December 18, 2018
Think, pray, act!
December 17, 2018
Do you remember falling down when learning to ride a bike? You kept on climbing back on until you had victory. Don’t quit until you succeed!
December 16, 2018
Anyone can love those who love you back, a mark of the Jesus follower is the willingness to love those who hate you. Lord, give us Your love to share with a hurting world!
December 15, 2018
I never got hooked on video games, they seemed pretty boring to me, of course after Pong, I didn’t give them much of a chance.
December 14, 2018
The truth is never to be feared. Lies eventually bring destruction, if not in this world, then certainly in the next!
December 13, 2018
Fear will cripple our ability to experience life. What is holding you back? God will help you overcome these fears if you will bring them to Him! Fear not, for God is with you!
December 12, 2018
Sometimes people just need a little encouragement to carry on and get through the challenge they’re in. Let’s you and I, provide that good word that will inspire them on to victory!
December 11, 2018
In the midst of our busy-ness, we should pause and recognize why this season is so special. At what other time of the year can you find so much joy and music that gives glory to the King of kings? Enjoy the Advent of our Lord!
December 10, 2018
Too often we are known for our judgement, we should be known for our love. This doesn’t mean we compromise, it means we work harder at loving all in spite of our differences.
December 9, 2018
It’s easy to complain and find the negatives in life, but you were made for something different. God created you to enjoy this existence. Take time to count your blessings today!
December 8, 2018
To love others without any expectation of reciprocity is a mark of a true Christ follower.
December 7, 2018
Take time to listen, don’t interrupt or interject, just be quiet and listen. It’s one of the best gifts you can give another! This is a skill I’m still working to perfect.
December 6, 2018
Fear can rob our rest, steal our joy and keep us from achieving much in our lives. When fear attacks, don’t succumb to it, but instead attack that fear with prayer. Soon after the prayer begins the fear will flee. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear!”
December 5, 2018
“I don’t feel like it” is a phrase that guarantees mediocrity. “Lord, help me!” is a prayer that leads to victory!
December 4, 2018
God never planned for you to carry your burdens alone. Share them with Him and the burden will become light.
December 3, 2018
Look for accomplishments to celebrate in the lives of people around you and while you’re at it, celebrate your victories also!
December 2, 2018
When worry threatens to overtake you, take refuge in the arms of Jesus!
December 1, 2018
If we only did what we felt like doing, we would accomplish little. Making a difference in this world requires escaping our comfort zone and taking on the difficult tasks!

WAKE UP WITH PC!!! November 2018

November 29, 2018
We thirst for that which will satisfy our souls and we go from place to place, person to person, cause to cause to slake this thirst. Jesus is the Living Water, an artesian well that never runs dry. Come to Him today!
November 28, 2018
In the time of St. Paul the were obvious, statues made of wood or stone. Today our idols are more subtle. What is it that we are bowing to? Lord, set us free!
November 27, 2018
The worlds way leads to sorrow, pain and destruction. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. It’s your choice and it sounds easy, but the enemy is relentless. Seek God with all your heart and you will be victorious!
November 26, 2018
We spend so much of our time and energy pursuing things and accomplishments. The pursuit of God is so much more fulfilling! Chase Him today!
November 25, 2018
When we allow pride to creep in, contentment slips away.
November 24, 2018
It seems like many of my fellow travelers on this planet are living aimlessly with no apparent purpose beyond self gratification. This is such a hollow existence. God is calling us to so much more. Seek Him every day and experience true abundant life!
November 23, 2018
Black Friday, a day devoted to the things of the world, following a day marked by thanksgiving to God. A stark contrast between what we need (Christ) and what we want (stuff). Lord, I need You, every hour!
November 22, 2018
A thankful heart is one of the best inoculations to protect us from bitterness.
November 21, 2018
The perception of many is that the Church is filled with pretty, perfect, spotless people that have it all together. The reality is that we are a sin stained, imperfect and broken family redeemed by Jesus looking for more of the same to become our siblings!
November 20, 2018
Though the future may look bleak, it doesn’t have to be. As Gods people pray, the future can become bright. Don’t underestimate the power of your prayers!
November 19, 2018
What if we would relinquish our power to God and then be willing to sit down with our enemies to talk and pray together? God could heal the hatred and transform this world. Come Holy Spirit!
November 18, 2018
Jesus isn’t just a great prophet or teacher. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We can trust in Him. Spend time with Him today!
November 17, 2018
When the followers of Christ live by the philosophies of the world we can no longer hear the voice of God. Friend, stop listening to those distracting noises and hear the Still Small Voice that will never fail you!
November 16, 2018
Though we may fear the pain of dying, we need never fear what awaits on the other side. Paul said, “to live is Christ, to die gain.” Do you fear? Trust in Jesus and those fears will disappear!
November 15, 2018
I often wish I could know what the future holds so I can be ready. God in His infinite wisdom and mercy only lets us see today. If we knew what was happening next, we would surely mess up Gods plan. Let us trust Jesus for today and for all of our tomorrows!
November 14, 2018
Let us not be easily offended, but make it difficult for us to offend others. May our words and actions be tempered by the love of Christ.
November 13, 2018
Stop and consider who Jesus is…He, as the creator and sustainer of all the universe chose to limit Himself and come to earth as a human being. Not only that, but He loves us so much that He died on the cross to bring us into His family. That blows me away!
November 13, 2018
God has a plan to rescue this broken world. He has placed the answer within every one of His believers. As we pray, listen and follow Him, lives are rescued and transformed. One by one is the plan. Love someone into the Jesus arms today!
November 12, 2018
Even when things are bad, God is still good! Let us not grow weary in prayer but rather receive new inspiration through it!
November 11, 2018
Generosity always blesses at least three people. The person who receives, the person who gives and God Who smiles because of it!
November 10, 2018
One negative word can demolish a person, be careful what you say and preface your words with prayer!
November 9, 2018
When there’s no hope…pray. When you’re full of hope…pray. Pray without ceasing!
November 8, 2018
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”  Isaiah 41:10
November 7, 2018
If you are placing your hope in politicians, you will be disappointed. Pray for them, but put your trust in the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth!
November 6, 2018
When we love people, we tell them the truth with love even when it is uncomfortable.
November 5, 2018
John the Baptist spoke of Jesus….”I must decrease and He must increase.” When this becomes our philosophy for living, fulfillment is the result!
November 4, 2018
The greatest fulfillment comes when we serve others! Let us emulate the Great Servant Leader, Jesus!
November 3, 2018
Those who appear to have their lives completely together are just good at hiding what’s really going on. We all need to be honest with God and then with one another!
November 2, 2018
The journey is more enjoyable when we walk it together. Christ is always our companion, but it helps to invite others to walk the path with us!
November 1, 2018
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -Jesus

When we make a comment, it can build up or tear down. Lord, help us to choose our words wisely!
October 27, 2018
 
I am weak, He is strong. I will fail, He never fails. I wander in the dark, He is the Light. Without Him, I am lost, but with God amazing things happen. Lord, hold us close!
October 26, 2018
 
Just take one more step onward, just climb a little higher, don’t stop and don’t go backward. Before you realize it you will have gone farther than you ever thought possible!
October 25, 2018
 
Often our greatest times of growth are in the deepest valleys of life…embrace them!
October 24, 2018
 
Fear…it can cripple us, all of us struggle with it. Solution? “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
October 23, 2018
 
When we give God the glory and keep none for ourselves, it makes room for more blessings to flow!
October 22, 2018
 
Sometimes people just need a friend to walk the difficult path along side them. Today, you can be that friend!
October 21, 2018
 
When disappointment threatens to overwhelm us, we need to go to that place of hope and peace…we go into the arms of Jesus!
October 20, 2018
 
Why do we wait for the “Powers That Be” to change things when we hold the greatest power of all in our prayers?
October 19, 2018
 
Christ mercy is incredible, the only thing that can limit it is our refusal to receive it!
October 18, 2018
 
No matter what you are going through today, you are not alone. God is with you and His Body, the church will be the tangible embodiment of His love. Make sure you are connected to The Body!
October 17, 2018
 
Let us be available today to be blessing givers. A smile, a good word, an encouraging note or phone call may be just what someone else needs to make it through their day. All of these cost us nothing, but can really make a difference!
October 16, 2018
 
I woke up today, albeit late, I woke up. Apparently, you did too. Are you grateful for the gift of this day? Use it for Gods glory and the blessing of others!
October 15, 2018
 
With so many competing voices clamoring for our attention, let us hear the Voice of Truth above them all. Lord, let me hear Your still small voice!
October 14, 2018
 
Prayer undergirds every move of God, from the life of an individual to the revival of a nation. Lord, help us to learn to effectively pray!
October 13, 2018
 
Lord, help me to go out of my way to be a blessing to others rather than ignore them and think only of myself!
October 12, 2018
 
What do you really believe in? What is it that formulates your philosophy of life? What would you be willing to die for? Joshua said “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord!” Paul said “for me, to live is Christ, to die gain” Lord, I give You this day, I give you my life!
October 11, 2018
 
To really listen to others, I have to stop my tendency to formulate an opinion or rebuttal. If I care for others, I must listen with an open heart.

“Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” ― Winston Churchill.
October 8, 2018
In a world of negativity, we can be a movement of hope. Don’t feed the gossip, don’t jump on the belittling bandwagon, don’t agree with the naysayers. Instead of pouring gas on the fire of darkness, bring the refreshing, cleansing waters of Love and Light from the Author of Hope!
October 7, 2018
 
There are times when we are tired and just want to roll over and quit, don’t do it! Keep moving forward, even if it’s just one step. Eventually, victory will come, if we don’t give up. Philippians 4:13!

Every day we can learn something new, grow in knowledge and faith. Today we can make a difference in another persons life, making a positive change in this world. Start with prayer and go from there!
October 5, 2018
 
To bless others is to bring a smile to the face of God!
October 4, 2018
Many people talk about their dreams, but the pursuit of our dreams requires more than just talk. We must be willing to work hard and even fail. But…even failure is success if we are intentional and growing!
October 3, 2018
 
Your words of encouragement might be the breath of life for someone today!
October 2, 2018
 
Today, invest into someone you love. Investment usually requires a sacrifice of time…it’s worth it!

WAKE UP WITH PC!!! July 2018

July 31, 2018
Most folks don’t relish confrontation. But if you want a healthy relationship, sometimes calm confrontation is crucial. Pray first!
 
July 30, 2018
Most of us will experience tragedy at some point in our lives. How we confront it will determine our ability to survive, thrive or be destroyed by the event.
 
July 29, 2018
When we exhibit mercy, patience and grace to those who by their actions deserve something less positive, we are mimicking the love that God pours out on us!
 
July 28, 2018
If you think that what you are about to say may be gossip, it probably is, replace it with encouragement!
 
July 27, 2018
Too often we concentrate on such trivial matters, while letting the things that matter most go unattended. Take time to slow down, pray and follow His lead!
 
July 26, 2018
When my eyes are on Jesus, the world comes into focus!
 
July 25, 2018
When we come to the end of ourselves, our journey with God can begin!
 
July 24, 2018
It’s easy to focus so much on our own needs that we miss the blessing of reaching out to others in need.
 
July 23, 2018
God can bring beauty from ashes. When you find yourself recovering from tragedy, loss or some terrible event, don’t neglect to pray. Often it is out of the pain that God creates new life!
 
July 22, 2018
Generosity is a gift to the recipient and to the one giving.
 
July 21, 2018

July 20, 2018
Only an incredible, merciful God who comes along side of us daily can inspire our souls to sing “It is well with my soul” when we experience the calamities that confront us. Can you sing that song today?
 
July 19, 2018
What are you afraid of? Perfect love casts out all fear. Run to the One who fears nothing!
 
July 18, 2018
As I draw nearer to God, I recognize how far I still need to grow to become the person He calls me to be. I’m thankful for His amazing patience!
 
July 17, 2018
Our denial of pain or problems doesn’t ease the suffering, it merely lengthens it. Let us see the Great Counselor and with His help work and walk through the issue!
 
July 16, 2018
Our very nature bullies us into being self centered. To be Christlike is to be others centered. Lives and communities are changed when we choose the second option!
 
July 15, 2018

July 9, 2018
The more tightly we hold to our wealth, the less likely we will experience freedom. A generous heart will receive the greatest joys in this world!
 
July 8, 2018
We are created in the image of God. The further we stray from our Creator, the more miserable we become!
 
July 7, 2018
The world creeps in, peace slips away. Christ comes in, peace returns!
 
July 6, 2018
Let’s perform for an audience of One!
 
July 5, 2018
Forgiveness sets us both free!
 
July 4, 2018
Freedom is bought with great sacrifice, whether it was for our nation or for our souls. Greatness requires self sacrifice, a rare trait in leaders today.
 
July 3, 2018
Most of us know that it’s wrong to judge others, but how often do we judge ourselves? There is therefore no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus! Live in freedom my friend!

My hope is not in more of me but in more and more of Jesus!

June 15, 2018

June 11, 2018
Investing in people is a sure thing!
June 10, 2018

June 9, 2018
God gives me enough time to get everything done. The problem seems to lie with the guy making my schedule…Lord, teach me to use my time in a way that is good for You and me!

Let us walk in the Light, allowing God’s presence to inform and illumine our every decision!
