“Contend With Horses”

We have many trials to contend with and as hard as it may seem sometimes, God is using it to strengthen us to be able to take on more. He is training us to “contend with horses” and to be able to survive the “swelling of the Jordan.” He wants to take us to another level, to be in a position to do more for Him and His kingdom. Our job is not to give up.

“If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses?  And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?” Jeremiah 12:5, NKJV

The fact of the matter is this – God wants to use you to do a work for His kingdom.  God has a special call over each and every life but all too often that call goes unfulfilled.  One of the main reasons given is that it’s just too hard.  With that, many give up on the pursuit of excellence and settle into the realm of mediocrity.

Life does get hard sometimes.  Being a Christian is hard sometimes.  Making it to the end of this race of faith gets hard sometimes, but here its as if God is saying, “If…

“What God Has for You, it is for You!”


A thought to share:

This morning while dropping my daughter off at school I spotted a rainbow in the sky. There was no rain, no storms; just sun and rainbow with some clouds. I thought about the symbol of the rainbow standing for God’s promise.

Then, I thought about the idea of having a rainbow without the rain is almost like having the promise without the storm. I said within myself, “Lord, any time you want to give me a promise without a storm or rain, that’s alright with me lol.”

It was just a nice thought but it reminded me that no matter what goes on in life, if God made you a promise it will come to pass, rain or not. Your circumstances don’t dictate God’s promises. Yes, there will be rainy days and more often than not we have to go through them to reach the promise. Regardless of what it looks like, rain or shine, WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU IT IS FOR YOU!

Blessings ~

A Sense of a Goose

Do we have the sense of a goose? Read this inspiring story and learn a lesson from these amazing creatures. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Next Autumn, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are travelling on the thrust of one another.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
If we have the sense of a…

“My Soul Sings!”


Do you feel that way sometimes?  Just letting the praises of God ring out.  It doesn’t matter if you have the best voice or not, just singing because your soul is just that happy and blessed in the Lord.  Let your soul sing today!  Carry the tune of Jesus wherever you go.

“Seize the Day! Make it a Masterpiece!”


Today is a gift that we will NEVER get back.  Make it a great day!

“Never Give Up Hope!”


“May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you,” Psalm 33:22.

“Sometimes we just need a little more grace.”


“God is in Your Midst!”

We are told over and over again in Scripture of the availability of God to draw near to man. From Genesis through to Revelation speaks to the heart of man: “I am here.” Exodus 17:7 asks the question, “Is the LORD among us, or not?”
The answer is positively, “YES!” God is here in your midst and with Him comes all His wonderful attributes of care and concern for His people. Knowing this, let us have faith today that He is here right where we are. Read and be blessed.

“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing,” Zephaniah 3:17

With the glow of the Christmas season behind us and packed away, the wonder of God coming near man should not be packed away also.  Oh, we hear it often leading up to December 25th, the promise that tells us, “They shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us,” (Mt. 1:23).  What of the rest of our days?  Days past the Christmas season when trials of the mundane and every day rock your boat; when the disappointments of failure and difficulties of decisions come to war?

What then?

God is still here!

I thank God that that promise is just not for the Christmas season.  We are told…
