Get Involved

Philippians 2:4 “Don’t just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.” (LB).

Who are the people that should be in our circle? Choose close friends who will Challenge You Mentally. Choose close friends who will Support You Emotionally. And choose friends who will Strengthen You Spiritually. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 “…encourage each other and build each other up…”. Read the rest of this entry


1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing. Pray at all times. Never stop praying. Make your life a prayer.” (ESV/GNT/NLT/TPT)

To make the most of your life, to have mental metamorphosis, to enjoy consistent mental health the first thing is, Do Not Believe Everything You THINK. The second thing is, Guard Your Mind Against GARBAGE. Proverbs 15:14 A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash.” Read the rest of this entry

At War?

Romans 7:23&25 “But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind… Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So, you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.”

You may not realize it, but the truth is there is a constant war going on around you and within you. And the battle is for your mind. There is an ongoing battle to take control of your mind because the force that controls your mind, controls your life. That is why this battle is so, Read the rest of this entry

To Finish

Matthew 11:29 “Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest.” (Voice)

As we come into God’s presence today, I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that God will breathe His life upon us, teach us His Word, and change our lives for the glory of His Name. Do you ever feel like you cannot get enough done in a day or with your life? Read the rest of this entry


Heb.12:27 “This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of what is shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.” (NRSV, emphasis added).

I pray that God will breathe upon us in His presence today, change our lives, take us higher in Him and cause His Word to come alive to us in Jesus Amazing Name. Amen. The truth about life and man is that man loves security and there is actually nothing wrong with that. However, the world is very fragile. Read the rest of this entry

Fixed Gaze

Acts 3:19 “So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life] … so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day]”

The Message Translation puts it this way, “Now it’s time to change your ways! Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins, pour out showers of blessing to refresh you”. Paul says to defeat discouragement, we need to be deliberate about taking time for renewal. Read the rest of this entry

Deep Breaths

1 Kings 19:1-3 “…Ahab… told Jezebel everything Elijah had done. including the way he had killed all the prophets of Baal. So Jezebel sent this message to Elijah: “May the gods strike me and even kill me if by this time tomorrow I have not killed you…” Elijah was afraid and fled for his life…”

The name Elijah means my God is my breath. How close is your breath? So, since God was with Elijah, what would have happened if he stood? Where will God be? Right there with him. Jezebel would not have been able to overpower him or even kill him because God is right there with him. Read the rest of this entry

More Gains

Ecclesiastes 4:10 “If you fall, your friend can help you up. But if you fall without having a friend nearby, you are really in trouble.” (CEV)

It would be a shame for anyone to be in a church family and if that person gets into trouble, he or she has to deal with it all alone. That will be a big shame. God has bought us all into a church family so that we can be a part of a community. Read the rest of this entry

Step By Step, I

Galatians 5:25 “Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives; let’s keep each step in perfect sync with God’s Spirit; we must also allow the Spirit to direct every aspect of our lives.” (NLT, VOICE, TPT)

If I let the Holy Spirit guide me, He will help me know what I need to know, He will help me go where I need to go, He will help me say what I need to say, the Holy Spirit will help me wait for god’s perfect timing, He helps me resist the things I can’t normally resist. Read the rest of this entry

Compassion, Faith & Action

Acts 3:6-7 “But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed…”

Yesterday, we looked at our first lesson, compassion, from the four friends in the story in Mark 2:1-12 [please read]. 1 Cor. 10:24 “People should be concerned about others and not just about themselves.” (GW, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
