God Works the Night Shift!

Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4 The other day I heard a preacher say “God works the night shift!” and I thought how true that is! I have not had a full night’s sleep in many months. It has been frustrating to say the least. I go to sleep right away, but every night, somewhere between 1am and 3 am, I wake up. I am awake for at least one hour, though it is usually for two to three hours;...

Stir Yourself Up!

“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you.” 2 Timothy 1:6 What are you to do when it seems nothing is going right? When there is no light at the end of the tunnel? When it appears that your hopes and dreams are never going to be realized? You are to do as Timothy was instructed to do: Stir yourself up! What does it mean to stir oneself up? In the above scripture, the word “stir” in the Greek...

When surrounded by a world struggling in turmoil, sin and despair, it is sometimes not surprising when doubts start to sprout up. When He seems far removed and the walk seems so lonely, I...

Time for Action – No More Analysis Paralysis

A very important aspect to growth and change in life is the pursuit of self-improvement. To be successful in life – business dealings, relationships, spiritual matters and more – we must be determined to better ourselves, on purpose. My husband and I first got involved in purposeful personal development many years ago when a mentor introduced us to a wonderful vision and goal setting program and the concept of dream boards. It was truly life...

Go to God, Don’t Run from God!

During church service last night, the presence of God was sweet. He gave me a word for His people, a word of encouragement. I didn’t get to speak it out last night, but I believe this word is for more in the body of Christ than only those in my church. The Lord said, “Many of you are afraid to look Me in the eye. You have the same feelings of shame and guilt that you had as a child when you did something wrong. It was hard to look your parents...
