005. ARE YOU CALLED OR JUST WANT IT?

Looking back over life, you may find that what you once wanted very badly, changed as you stepped further into God’s true purpose for your life. Some aspirations likely had to die a painful death, before you finally say….

004. DISSAPOINTMENT DOESN'T DEFINE YOUR DESTINY

Disappointment doesn’t define your destiny. It is the shaping of your character, preparing you for what you are not yet ready for, but has always been yours for the taking. My own story is fraught with what I thought was a slammed door to something I would never reach, but God is a keeper of promises and His ways are not mine, thank the Lord! However, I could have let those moments lock me down into believing the lie that I have to settle and stop dreaming big dreams with God…

003. JEALOUS FOR MY HEART

This ones gonna hurt! Jealousy is the ugliest thing, and it can be so subtle. Like me, if someone would have asked, “Do you battle envy,” I would have quickly said, “no!” I mean, come on! Who wants to admit that? It is staggering, our ability to focus on what others have that we don’t. This is only intensified like the power of the sun by social media!

It is almost like hearing an entire orchestra falling down some stairs. All those different musicians, with different instruments, all doing their own thing. It’s a total mess! Until the conductor steps on the stage, and then all eyes are on him as he walks out, taps on the podium with his baton, and slowly lifts his hands. As they drop, what was a cacophony of division and chaos, suddenly becomes a sound so beautiful, it literally takes your breathe away! 

This is a picture of what I believe the Lord is seeking…

001. A NEW THING

Have you ever received a revelation from God or seen Him show up in an amazing way and decided that must be how He always wants to do it? Have ever been a part of something great that the Lord was doing and thought this is how I want things to always be! I totally have! Sometimes, we just want things to stay the same, even when they get harder and harder to maintain. I’m not about to say that all tradition and every comfort zone is a bad thing, but i will say that they should never forfeit the leading of the Spirit. When they do, they have become old wine skin (Luke 5:37-39).
