Daily Inspiration-How About That Sabbath Rest?

Some folks live in a continual swirl of drama, never taking a moment to rest.  For some, drama is a way of life.  It can be generational.  It can be territorial.  Whatever the root cause, it is detrimental.

Choosing to live your life drenched in drama negatively affects body, mind, emotion and spirit.  The constant stress wears down every single aspect of your life.  Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, mystery illnesses and more are skyrocketing in these days.  Although there are many other contributing factors such as poor diet, toxic chemicals, lack of sleep, excessive reliance on electronic communication, etc., embracing

Let God Make Your New Year

New!

Here we are once again on the precipice of a new year!  As 2017 draws to a close what do you envision for your 2018?  This past year may have been quite wonderful for you.  Perhaps it was most challenging.

It is easy to focus on the negative in life.  So much negativity floods the news media daily.  You are bombarded with continuous updates of frightening happenings around the world.  This endless barrage of negative can cast a dark shadow on your life if you are not careful.  Despite whatever took place look

God’s Word Trumps the Voluminous Doctrine of Man!

 At a Christmas gathering someone asked me if I thought that the Pastor’s speaking ability was what would lead me to go to a given church.  My response was that it matters not where you sit on Sunday but rather where you sit daily.  A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what should lead you.  Sitting at His feet daily and choosing to let Him lead you is the key.  Then, wherever you may go on Sunday Christ is with you and in that place.

Of course a Spirit lead church leadership is critical, especially in these times.   A solid

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

Merry Christmas!

The Greatest Love

Today we celebrate the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ.  Jesus’s birth was foretold by the Prophet Isaiah and fulfilled in a stable in Bethlehem.  The light from His star led wise men to His manger so long ago.

Today His light continues to shine bright in a darkened world.  Wise men still seek Him.  Once found, His light shines through each of them attracting others to His saving grace.  The immeasurable sanctity of a true relationship with the Son of God forever transforms an earthly life to a Kingdom walk.

Daily Inspiration-Kingdom or Worldly? The Choice is Yours!

A major disappointment is often a Divine appointment in disguise.   If you only look at the natural situation you will only see a worldly view.  Things happen for many reasons.  Often, there is a lesson to be learned…an opportunity to grow and change in a positive direction.

If you live Kingdom you do not get entangled with earthy drama.  You may even have to walk away from what would appear to be right according to worldly standards.  To live Kingdom often requires the opposite action and outcome on your part.  To live Kingdom is to bring the Kingdom of God

Daily Inspiration-Being Present Is The Present!

As Christmas draws closer, please take a moment to be sensitive to those who face challenges whether health, financial or relational.  Christmas is a wonderful, joyful season but for many it is a difficult time of the year and the added stress can be overwhelming.

Step back a bit and be cognizant of the true needs of others.   I spoke yesterday with a woman whose husband just went home to be with the Lord, a hardworking father of 4 who had no extra money for Christmas and a man whose son just passed as well.  Some have lost loved ones

Daily Inspiration-“Seek Ye First…”

 This is a season of blessings and miracles.  Take time to be grateful for the everyday miracles in your life.  I see and hear much in ministry about the challenges people face every day.

Many of us will never know the challenge of being confined to a wheelchair or being unable to hear or speak or see.  Countless live with chronic pain that limits their life and ability to interact with others.  Countless others are challenged with anxiety, addiction, PTSD.  The list goes on.

Whatever may be your challenge, never let it define you for you are so much more

Daily Inspiration-A Cup of Christmas Tea…

One Christmas tradition I shared with my family was Christmas tea.  It was a special time to share tea and conversation.  When my Dad passed, my Mom and I carried on the tradition until she moved to another state.  I then looked forward to our telephone conversation as we shared our Christmas tea across the miles, until she joined my Dad.

Without her there, my Christmas gatherings with my cousins became all the more special to me as that was my family connection.  They were a large family so it would always fun to see them and catch up on
