Daily Inspiration-Who’s Got the Wheel?

The first month of the year sets the foundation for your year ahead.  It is the first fruits of your year.  Many fast during January to hear God for direction.  Many dedicate the year to Him.  Many resolve to create change through making long lists of New Year’s resolutions.  Usually, in short order, all is forgotten and life returns to whatever it was last year.

Fasting, dedicating and resolving are good but it is really what is at the heart of all these things that is important.  If doing these things by rote each year or because your church is

Daily Inspiration-Keep Your Life Simple!

You know those people who get all involved in other people’s lives and business?  Decide not to be that person.  Keep your life simple.  Focus on your own walk and that of those you are responsible to lead and guide.  Leave the rest to God for only He fully sees their heart, motives and situation.

You only see an infinitesimal portion of any situation.  To think you know it all from that very narrow vantage point is to operate from a perspective of pride at its fullest.  Stay out of it.  Judge not.  Work out your own salvation!

For it

I pray this finds you well and prospering.  A concept that kept surfacing for me all week is hypocrisy.  I have spent some time pondering hypocrisy and the fruit thereof in one’s life.  The dictionary gives insincerity, pretense, duplicity, two-faced, falseness, unfaithfulness and double minded as synonyms of hypocrisy.

Can Love Heal a Broken Heart?


Seek: Stay Equipped, Empowered, Kingdom focused! 

While looking through some discounted Valentine’s Day decorations at a local store, I found a beautiful slate heart with a soft pattern of roses and the word love boldly placed in the center.

There were a few flaws on the heart but I was sure it could be restored.  I took it to the salesclerk to ask for an additional discount.  She spoke into her headpiece to her supervisor, “I have a woman holding a heart of stone that is chipped.  She would like a discount.”  I Read the rest

Who Has Your Heart?

A Lenten Reflection

This week will see a flurry of retail activity to try to make Valentine’s Day a memorable one for those we love.  To really be unforgettable to our loved ones is to be in the spirit of a generous heart all year long.  Having a generous heart means walking in love.  “Love…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.”  (1 Corinthians 13:7-8a)   Read that a few times.  Notice the word all.  This means despite the words spoken or the circumstances that do not go exactly as we would script them.  … Read the rest

As we enter this last week of January I pray that you have been able to strengthen your foundation in the Lord.  The first month is so important to set the tone for the year ahead.  Maintaining a solid relationship with Jesus makes all things possible for those who believe.

 How is Your Vision?

At the beginning of each year we discuss vision.  I believe this subject bears review at least once a year in every believer’s walk. Sometimes in life your vision can become clouded or

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry we are ‘praying the states.’   We pray weekly for each state in the order of admission to the Union.  Our Nation now more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.  This week please cover Georgia admitted to the Union January 2, 1788, in prayer.  Pray for wisdom and discernment for the political leaders, pastors and church leaders, the people residing in Georgia and for all in our Nation.
