Pass over the waters (with podcast episode #2)

You can do it. You can cross over those dirty, depressing waters, because God is with you. Isaiah 43:2 says, “fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you..." That's what God told the people of Israel and He's telling us the same thing. Do you know God is with you? Do you know He will never leave you or forsake you? Do you know you can make it through that river, valley, ocean, sea, whatever body of water that may be trying to overwhelm you? Nothing and I mean nothing, is too big for the Lord. Do you hear me? So you must continue on. It doesn't matter how difficult things seem. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy is most definitely coming (Psalm 30:5). I'm telling you. I remember when I was in so much pain physically, I didn't know how I was going to get through. I had to pass a fitness test and I had not practiced like I should have before the test. Every lap around that track was so hard. My head was throbbing. I wanted to stop so many times. I just prayed out loud as I painfully crossed over each line of completion. I ended up finishing with a great time. It was a painful lesson of preparation and that's for another blog post, but let me tell you this: all the pain was worth my wonderful finish. All of the pain was worth me writing to you right now that you too will get through any pain, heartache, trauma, or what may have you. You will come out smelling like a rose, because as Isaiah 43:2 reminds us, God is with us in the rivers and they shall not overwhelm us. That's it. Believe it.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

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.

Eagles fly above the storm

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with Blog Post. Are you an eagle? Do you know, eagles fly above the storm and they wait for the winds to carry them to greater heights?  That's right, as the storm is raging below, they are soaring above it all. They don't escape the storm, mind you. They simply use the storm to lift themselves to higher magnitudes. It's a though they know the storm is temporary; that they will indeed rise above it; and that they are riding the storm. I find all of that fascinating, because we can take the model of the eagle and do the same. Why can't we? We can imitate the eagles intelligence, push-through, and perseverance to weather any storm -- the storms of life that will come. If we will just know that God will never give us more than we can handle, then we will come out victorious.  As you going through anything today? Are you worried about anything in particular? Just know, you can rise above it all. Nothing is too big for G
