There are times I tell myself I’m not measuring up………you know those thoughts. They are the ones that tell us, we aren’t good enough. We question whether we are a good parent, friend, neighbor or marriage partner. So why in the world do we taunt ourselves like this? Because in this world of relentless pursuits … More NO CONDEMNATION
If I am not thanking GOD for all things that come my way, isn’t this a form of selective faith? Think on this: why do we remember to thank GOD always for the good blessings that come our way, but we can’t seem to see the bad stuff in the same way? We tend to … More SELECTIVE FAITH
DO YOU EVER WRESTLE WITH GOD? You know the kind…….where you are on your knees, down and dirty in the trenches asking HIM all sorts of things, tears flowing, body shaking? Do you throw your hands up in frustration saying ” it’s not fair” or “LORD, I just don’t get it!” We cannot deny those feelings … More WRESTLE WELL

I am one to believe that when JESUS asks you to show up, what better place to do that than around a table! If you think about it, people have been gathering around tables for centuries.

There really are no shortcuts to living out our lives…….each day must be lived out, each 24 hours must tick away before we move on to the next day and the day after that. Have you ever noticed that when things are going well for us or we are doing something fun that the … More THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS
GOD’S very name is “I AM”. Did you know? God is in our every moments, in the very present……now and in the hours of our days. I don’t know about you, but I feel guilty when I forget HIM. When I get so caught up in myself. I try to be aware of HIM as … More HIS NAME IS “I AM”.
