• PERSEVERE running the race of faith

  • “Your beginnings
    will seem humble,
      so prosperous will your future be." Job 8:7

  • "Be still, and know that I am God;       I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" Psalm 46:10

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." - Galatians 2:20

  • Not Peace but a Sword!

    Are you surrounded by people who do not understand you, never ask your opinion, aren’t interested in what or Who you love, and always push you aside?  Do you feel like you’re not even on the radar?  If so, my friend, you’re not alone.  I just want to write a few things about this to [...]

  • Learning the Discipline of Faith

    Hey friends, I’m thinking that it’s about time to sit down and write something new for you to read  It’s been some time since I last posted anything and you’ve probably been wondering what’s going on.  When I first started blogging, I posted almost every day.  And I feel that God now has me in [...]

  • Spiritual Forces Cannot Work While We Are Trusting In Earthly Forces

    These are words that seemed to jump off the page as I was reading!  Their timeless truth is still screaming loud and clear…  Spiritual forces cannot work while we are trusting earthly forces!  This is a statement made that carries great worth.  It’s something I have painstakingly and most genuinely learned by having my hopes dashed [...]

  • Allure My Heart

    All I can do sometimes is sit still before God and just reflect.  I’m nothing less than amazed at the radical way Jesus has changed everything about me.  I don’t know the old Lori; she doesn’t live here anymore.   I’m  feeling that there is someone out there, perhaps many, who need help re-evaluating their [...]

  • Someone Asks… Will You Pray For Me?

    “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”  1 John 5: 14-15   The emphasis here is [...]

  • How Can We Hear Him Above All the Noise?

      When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”  Psalm 27:8   I truly do not intend to offend-only to warn.  First thing I am going to say is what I believe to be truth.  We are in a spiritual battle… Some may not agree, but [...]

  • Real Strength Comes from the LORD

    “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” Ephesians 6: 10 Though it may be an unpopular truth… your strength in the Lord is born during a storm! It’s much easier trusting God when the sun is shining then when the storm is raging.  As Christians, we are [...]

  • Hell is Hardest on God’s Saints

    The time is now.  You’re absolutely S-O-L-D out for the King.  You make the decision to live for Christ… to really live for Christ.  You’re on the mountain top with God, but something is brewing below.  That doesn’t matter to you because you’re with God!  When you climb down the mountain, and get back to [...]

  • Do You Realize Satan is in Church… Actually, he Gets a Gold Star for Perfect Attendance

    He’s in the pulpit. He’s in the pews. He’s everywhere. We can find him in church board/business meetings, in the choir, even in children’s ministry… “These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. [...]

  • The Cost of Following…

    Hear me… even loyalty to your family is not to take priority over Jesus’ demand of obedience! Another of his disciples said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.” But Jesus told him, “Follow me now. Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead.” Matthew 8: 21-22 But Jesus told him, “Anyone [...]
