Do you trust the mastery of God?

Today I want to encourage you to trust God, even in the midst of uncertainty and in the middle of a pandemic- we have to trust the mastery of God! His thoughts and intentions towards us is good, so why not embrace the fact that the God of the universe is aligning all the eventsContinue reading “Do you trust the mastery of God?”

Need a Break?

Can I ask, have you been resting with the Lord? In my time of prayer, the Lord reminded me, as I learned last week, that He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:28) and that He has gifted us with times and seasons of rest. It all dawned on me this morning when IContinue reading “Need a Break?”

Becoming

I cannot believe this is happening! I remember the night before anything big was to happen, I would be so incredibly nervous. But now look at me; I’m calm, and relaxed, totally copasetic. I know I’m called to speak. Besides the fact that this has been confirmed through people; I know this because it’s likeContinue reading “Becoming”

Fear

COVID-19 has me in my bible like it’s nobody’s business! I’ve always wished for more time but could never find it. Either I was caught up with work, family, or other obligations that I could never do what I actually wanted to do.

As kind and gentle as I am towards people, and as comfortable as I make others feel who come into my home orContinue reading “Lessons from the Pulpit Part Two: Positioning our Heart”

Lessons from the Pulpit: Plug into the Power Source

I once heard a man say, “If Jesus was to visit some of our churches today, we’d have to give Him a complete orientation. We’d have to explain to Him what an usher is, why we have a board of directors, and help Him become a bit more acquainted with our Sunday morning program; ourContinue reading “Lessons from the Pulpit: Plug into the Power Source”

The Messed Up ‘Cookie-Cutter’ Life

Never in a million years did I think I’d be the one. I never thought I’d fit into the role of a minister. Maybe someone else, maybe someone more qualified, but certainly not me!’ Those were my initial sentiments when I was called into the eldership role at my local church. As feelings of ‘notContinue reading “The Messed Up ‘Cookie-Cutter’ Life”
