You're Special to God

1 Corinthians 1:28 says, "God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing, things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God." That means don't think for a minute that God can't and won't use you, because of your past or your present. None of what you did or didn't do matters to God. In fact, that's the very reason why He can use you. Do you love Him? Has He intervened in your life? If so, guess what? People can be inspired by your story. I know, because I have a past where I didn't do everything right. And I have experienced being gutter-low and didn't know how I was going to get out of it. I know sadness and I know sorrow. And I know how it feels to be counted out, but God had other plans. That's why this blog is so important. I want to encourage you to believe in yourself, because there was a time when I was of little faith and little confidence. God brought me out of that despair and He does that for anybody. We are special to God, because He loves us and He wants the very best for us. He knows what lives inside of us. So just in case you may be feeling rejected and dejected, know this: God sees you and He has so many great plans for your life. Trust Him and continuously seek Him (Matthew 6:33). Whether anybody understands you or not, it's ok. God understands and that's all that matters.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
