This scripture got down in my spirit this morning. Last night, the Lord brought to mind the scripture penned in Hebrews 12:1: “…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,” Sin that entangles! That’s a cool image. […]

You can choose to live in a world where you’re terrified of darkness or you can live in a world where your God terrifies the darkness. I chose years ago to accept Jesus into my life, but before that, the enemy tried to convince me I was a good person, almost like God should have […]

“I’m a high school dropout, and I’m dumb, so if you want me on your team, you’ve got a lot of work to do,” I prayed. This was my weak-minded prayer in 1994 when God began to deal with me about ministry. I was a preacher’s kid. I grew up in ministry, and I had […]

This morning during my Bible and prayer time, I was captivated by the pretty Christmas lights. I stared at the nativity scene realizing how clean and presentable we’ve made the Christmas story. I mean, who wants animal manure in the middle of the pretty Christmas story? Yuck!!! It’s almost like we had to do the […]

I have a problem with rules. Maybe not intentionally, but my A.D.D. often causes me to be so in to doing one thing that I forget about the rules of something else. Now, this next confession may get me into trouble with my sister, but I’m willing to sacrifice that to get this message across, […]

I was born with pasty white skin. It was nearly transparent. You could see veins and arteries clearly through my skin, but honestly, I never even noticed it. I was a young kid. I was innocent. I loved to play and dance. I sang to the top of my lungs every Disney song within my […]
