A Life of Discipline Will Bring God’s Peace 

There is so much that competes for out time and energy… and our concentration…. how much is too much…. 

One might wish for more time, or more ability to do this and that, but aren’t we the ones that determine our schedule (in a manner of speaking). We can make more time if we choose to do so.. we have to find what is more important to us! We need to be more disciplined! 

“I had to discipline myself in order to simplify my life. Ask the Holy Spirit for help. He can guide you, showing you what commitments to make and which ones to turn down. Begin disciplining yourself today, and you can begin to enjoy the peaceful life that God has waiting for you.” – Joyce Meyer

Discipline today = fruits tomorrow! 



1. KNOW that you are a direct reflection of Gods light to this world 

2. LIVE in a way that attracts people to His light

3. SHARE His light always
How can I pray for you?

Devotional 2/19

Learn to Trust God’s Plan for You 

Is there a problem to being independent? Too independent? Feel like you simply can’t relay on anyone else or because you haven’t in a long while or maybe you rely too heavily on someone else and not on God. I think we have been there far too often … I speak for myself when I say I have been on both sides and have to conquer that daily to understand each and everyday of my life isn’t MY LIFE

So what can we do? Who do we go to? Friend? Husband? Parent? Close… our one true Father in heaven! God! He will meet our every need! We don’t have to rely on ourself or anyone else so heavily or even understand everything that happened, just knwktnjng who has control of our life! 

“Now trust won’t just magically happen. Trust grows as we take steps of faith and experience God’s faithfulness. You have to tell your doubt, your fear, your insecurity, or maybe even your fierce independence to make way for a life of trusting in God. When you do that, you won’t have to struggle so much to make your life work. So even when it doesn’t make sense, trust Him, and experience His freedom and rest.” – Joyce Meyer

Life isn’t always going to be easy or understandable! We listen! Pray! Lean on Him and know who holds your future day in and day out!

Grow Tall  2/19/17

Grow tall
Matthew 5:14-16

Our life is NOT defined by what happens to us! Your walk in public with Christ is only as strong as it is in private. As roots protect us, we must also branch out… 
Big idea: to fulfill Gods purpose for my life in this church, I must grow TALL spiritually through daily reflection and unashamed action.

Identify WHO YOU ARE (14)

We should be a reflection of Christ. As children of Christ, we are a reflective light, a tall light and we don’t do anything to have it, it s there, waiting for us to illuminate it to the person who needs it most. We are to bear witness! “Cities on a hill are to be seen.” Stand on a hill and be seen, let others see your light. Daily reflect: we are a light for others to see so others can come and find us and find rest! Don’t lose track of our mission! Reflect on his word, His song, serving others, being on mission! Music is powerful! The song can change you weather you see it or not… focus on the words because it can and will fold deep into your soul! 
Influence THE WORLD AROUND YOU (15-16)
Song: This little light of mine… “hiding a bushel” – hide or steal someone talent (Matthew 5) don’t hide Christ’s accomplishments…. don’t dismiss what He has, is and will do! Where has God placed your lamp? He has placed you for maximum illumination! We don’t always see it, but there is purpose! Job, city, season, reason and timing! To hide our lamp would be against our DNA as a Christian! Would you agree? People should notice you…. if you were removed. Would people notice? Would people be upset? Would people fight to have you stick around? 
When you do something… outward focus? Is this going to leave an impact on the city? On the neighborhood? We grow tall by putting our faith into action. Accrational evangelism…. we don’t need a prize to be attracted to come to God. Be on your game everyday to see what’s important and what’s not…. Are my good works attracted people to God! 
When you see someone, you might only see their branches, unless you get to know someone personally, you may not see their root system! 
Is your life attractive? Full of love and compassion? Change a persons vision of Christian… humble, asking forgiveness, knock down walls, giving love and not hate…. love and serve people. It’s. It about you! It’s about others! 
Reminder for this week my friends…. 

1. KNOW that you are a direct reflection of Gods light to this world 

2. LIVE in a way that attracts people to His light

3. SHARE His light always
You have got to spend time with God on a daily basis…. 5 min a day a least as a start… see what it does for you! 

“”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

– ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬‬

How can I pray for you friends? Let me know!

Devotional 2/18

Experience a new beginning 

“Choose to think according to God’s Word, not how you feel. Receive His love and experience a new beginning. Life will become so much sweeter if you live with an attitude that says “God is completely changing me from the inside out. He’s giving me a new beginning and there are greater things ahead.”” – Joyce Meyer 

Short and sweet for today friends… accept Him and have faith…. everything will fall into place! 

If I can pray for you, please let me know!

Devotional 2/17

Give him your ashes

Our mistakes are apart of our past, but they make US! We are Gods children, we are represented by Jesus, loved and accepted! We can ask fifty times for forgiveness and God will continue to do so because He loves us! Don’t fall trap into believing you have to be something greater, you just have to repent and believe in God and that Jesus died for us and for our sins and that He is in control of us and our life! 

From dust we became and dust we will go…. 

“Isaiah 61:3 says He will give us “beauty instead of ashes,” but I find that many people want to hold on to their ashes, the cinders of the past, as reminders of their shortcomings and failures. I encourage you to let go of your ashes and reach for something new. God is full of mercy and long-suffering. His loving-kindness never fails or comes to an end. Jesus came to lift burdens, let them go, and believe He is greater than your mistakes. Give Him your ashes today.” -Joyce Meyer

Devotional 2/16

Trust Him through the process

Do we trust God only for what we need or want or do we really trust Him for what is really going to put us beside Him and in his presence? 

It’s a process… and trusting God is apart of what He wants from us! 

“Trust Him enough to walk through situations with stability and with a good attitude on a consistent basis. He needed me to learn that He may not always rescue us when we want to get out of circumstances, but He is always with us as we walk through them. God does not always deliver us from everything when we think He should, but He is always with us. Today, instead of focusing on just the end result, realize that God is with you now. He is near to you, so trust Him to walk with you through the process.” – Joyce Meyer

Follow the little promptings

“God wants to bless the people in your life. I encourage you today to keep your heart sensitive to God’s voice. Follow the little promptings. He will speak to your heart and lead you in the way you should go.” -Joyce Meyer
When the spirit tells you a little whisper of something near and dear to someone else’s heart, that spirit will touch you in a way you’re going to understand… so if you feel a tinge of “want” to help, make sure Its the spirit….

If you’re reading this… thanks for stopping by and reading what I have to say! ❤


 🌹 Happy Valentine’s Day! 🌹 
Move Past Regret and Make New Choices 

Regrets makes it hard to move past and move forward… retreats can make you feel inferior to the world and make you feel less than and or that you’re not worthy! 

“If you find yourself regretting some of the unwise choices you have made in the past, don’t be deceived into thinking it is too late to do anything about it. Just start doing what’s right and then stick with it. As you start making better choices, you will come to experience a life in which you enjoy God’s blessings every day.” – Joyce Meyer

Pray! Ask God for guidance and know that you’re covered and accepted, no matter what mistakes you have made!

Devotional 2/13

Choose God’s Standards, Not the World’s 

“We need to encourage one another to live by godly standards and resist the pull of the world. A well-known quote offers some good advice: ‘Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.’Make a decision to serve God wholly, putting Him first in everything you do.” – Joyce Meyer

What better way to just be respectful to ourselves and everyone around us than to be God honoring and following his word and his ways!? I can’t think of anything better than following along side God and being one of his teachers, encourages, leaders, and most of all, guarding our own temple! 

I have a lot to learn, I can’t say I don’t…. 

Put God first and the world to the side… man can’t do for you what God can and has done for you!

Gods supernatural favor

“There is a distinction between natural favor and supernatural favor. Natural favor must be earned, but supernatural favor is a gracious gift from God. We should live with the freedom and liberty that comes from living in God’s favor. Regardless of the circumstances that come into your life, believe God for supernatural favor.” – Joyce Meyer

Let God life you up and give you the power you need… let God be in control! Let go! 

Read the story of Esther and see what power God have her in the time of her need! 

Don’t be afraid to seek God and ask for supernatural power…. ask and you shall receive!
