Choose Life!

Every day in life we make choices – lots of choices. Some choices are big, some are small, some very important, and some fairly trivial. God is so cool! He gives us the choice to choose life or death. He even tells us which to choose (sort of like a cheat sheet!) We are to choose life! I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and...

No Condemnation!

Romans 8:1 says:  Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live and walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. Many of you don’t know that my ministry, The Encouragement Center, was started almost twenty years ago with the original name “Romans 8:1 Ministries”.   My heart was, and always will be, to tell people that God is good and that He loves them...

In fact, it can be very condemning to those who are in need of...

My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22 What do you do when you are lining your life up to the Word of God, purposefully choosing to do His will, and life still seems to be not working right? We all have been there.

Seek Him Early Each Day!

Spending time alone with God is one way you can get to know Him and know that He is good! Seeking Him early each day will cause your day to be blessed and prosperous. I remember, years ago, when I was a single mom and a business owner, never seeming to have the time to spend with the Lord. I was extremely busy, yet still wanted to get to know Him better. My bed felt too good in the morning to get up extra early, but if I waited until evening I...
