  1. Relationship actually, is what makes us Christians. Without being Immersed in the word, without the word dominating our hearts we cannot be filled with the holy spirit who helps in our relationship with God. Salvation restores our relationship, but it is the holy spirit that maintains and builds that relationship when we let Him. We cannot pray unless the spirit prays in us, we cannot spend time with God unless the spirit quickens us to. No one can do the things of God, only the spirit can, by acting on the word in our hearts. It is the holy spirit that helps in our weaknesses to

  2. PRAYER PROVEN POWER! Prayer, primarily is not just talking to God, but agreeing with God according to His Word or promise. That's why meditation is a must for divine effect and results in all forms of prayer. Meditating on God's word puts you in the midstream of the flow of the Holy Ghost the author of every Word in scripture. By this, God's word not only dwells in you, but does so richly, enriching you in all areas producing boldness, confidence and authority. Prayer comes alive as soon as God's Word comes alive in you, even if it's just a scripture, let alone when they're more! Moreov

  3. From Persecutor to Preacher "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them - yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me" (1 Corinthians 15:10). I am what I am only by the grace of God! I believe it was the 1st year of high school. We had a job fair. Do you remember those? People would come from different places and sit up little booths in the gym and basically try to recruit you into their profession. I had no idea what I wanted to do in my adult life. Unfortunatel

  4. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE. Psalm 50.23 - He who brings an offering of praise and thanksgiving honors and glorifies Me; and he who orders his way aright [who prepares the way that I may show him], to him I will demonstrate the salvation of God. LET'S DO SOMETHING TODAY, JUST TO HONOR GOD. DON'T ASK FOR ANYTHING EVEN THOUGH THERE MIGHT BE PRESSING NEEDS. LET'S HONOR HIM BY GIVING THANKS AND PRAISING HIM. PSALM 103 WILL HELP TO SHOW WHY WE CAN'T HELP GIVING THANKS AND PRAISING HIM FOREVER ! Hallelujah!

  5. "As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world's interest in me has also died" (Galatians 6:14). We all brag about different things. Some of us way more than others (Me, with my hand raised). I know one of the things I brag about all the time is making progress at the gym. When I can go up 5 or 10 pounds in weight on my reps, everyone is going to hear about it. You better believe that I am going to tell them, and possibly even send them a video (lol).

  6. Thanksgivings Past and Present by William D'Andrea This article was originally written and posted on a different website back in 2009. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 1 When I was a child in the 1950's, one of my most favorite things was Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. At that time my family and I lived in the New York City Borough of Queens, in the Sunnyside area. On Thanksgiving morning, we'd take the IRT #7 Train into Manhattan, to the Times Square Station. Then we'd take another train uptown, and watch the Parade from the Central Park side of Central Park West and

  7. "I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do" (John 17:4). I am a Sanitation Tech at George's Prepared Foods. They make (RTE), ready to eat foods, such as burgers and sausage patties. After production has ran on 1st and 2nd shift, we go in and clean the machines. There is a process to this and it involves a couple of steps. There are millions of people that eat off these machines that we clean every single day. Walmart being one of George's top customers, and we know, a lot of people buy prepared meat from Walmart.

  8. Even knowing for certain that God—without fail—always brings us successfully through every discouraging and discomforting difficulty, it doesn’t ease much of the “hardness” in what the trial brings. It can often shorten the soak-time when remembering all of this, but nothing is supposed to detract from the exact level of difficulty God tailor-fits for each believer and each trial (1Co 10:13). This is what produces in us a desire to maintain stable dependence on God and continue to receive ever-increasing conformity “to the image of His Son.” It is in how “patiently” (Rom 12:12) w

  9. When we're faced with challenges, we ought to pray about our weaknesses and not the situation. Because the situation is a check to mature us in Faith. Satan, the only thing be can touch is your possession and not your heart. He can touch your money, health, loved ones, anything, but he cannot touch your heart. He does this to destroy our relationship with God. When satan knows your faith is in God and not on your possession he'll stop disturbing you, becausehe can only touch your possession and he knows that disturbing you is drawing you closer to God. So, he has to give up.

  10. Every great leader, successful inventor, pioneer or reformist, will lose some precious relationships, comfortable habits and things! Not because they are clumsy at managing relationships, but primarily because they CHOSE to suffer discomfort, shame and being misunderstood, usually associated with the risk-taking and audacious venture of every great vision and accomplishment. Path-finders will suffer bruises, betrayals and hardship, but will enjoy unique privileges eventually, which make most people turn green with envy. Faith takes risks. Great faith is high risk that pleases God greatly.

  11. Whatever we ask by faith in the name “Jesus,” according to His will, already has been made available even though not evident in the material or yet manifested in our hearts ( spirit being ). We must see through the eyes of Faith to believe it already has been made available in the unseen. This gives us a contented heart, a heart of faith to stay more closely with Jesus as we await the fulfillment of His will. Asking in Faith is followed by “seeking.” To seek is to act Faith, believing that God is working out the answer slowly, but surely as we walk closely with Him. As earlier said

  12. Read the Fine Print I got home from work at 630 this morning. I came in, did my dishes from my lunch, put my gym clothes away, and made me a coffee. I went out and sat on the porch and was playing with my dogs; Rose and Buddy. I sipped my coffee and started reading this article from USA Today. "Woman wins @$10,000 for reading fine print on her insurance policy." Donelan Andrews, a Georgia school teacher won this money from reading the fine print on her travel insurance contract. This lady was 7 pages deep into the fine print.

  13. I originally wrote this article several years ago, when I posted it on a different website. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Inheriting the Earth and Seeing God? “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” (Matthew 5: 5.) “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God?” (Matthew 5: 8.) The meek and the pure at heart shall inherit the Earth, and see God? That's what Jesus said, but is that practical or is that even possible? If it's not, what's the point of trying? What did Jesus mean by "meek"? Did He mean being whimpy?

  14. (Photo credit: rio-lecatompessy - Unsplash) The 'Wanna Be' Why About once every three months on Sunday afternoon, my dad lined the children of our church up on the platform to ask them what they wanted to be when they grew up. It was one of my special times that I paid keen attention because each time he would question them their ‘wanna be’ would sometimes change, or would be new ones I had not heard before—and it was enjoyable to hear their voices amplified by the great mike system we had. I listened especially as my father grilled the older ones on why they wanted to be such
