The Next Chaper

After years of holding evangelistic crusades all over the world and preaching the gospel to over 20 million people, Evangelist James Robison sat down. He entered the next chapter of his ministry when God directed him to sit down in front of a camera instead of traveling over 300 days a year to preach in...

Regret is the Past Crippling the Future

Everyone experiences regret in some form. Whether your regret is from overreacting to a situation with words you wish you could retrieve, or a more serious regret, such as cheating on your spouse, we have all done things we wish we could take back.

The Upside-Down Kingdom

Many years ago, I attended a large Women’s Conference in Southern California. When invited, I was given the impression that I would be called upon to say a few words.

Contentment

The late Charles Spurgeon said, “You say, ‘If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.’ You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” I just got back from Colombia this past week and have been pondering over the...

Your Thoughts Determine Your Destiny

Did you know that your destiny is determined by what and how you think? Ask yourself the following questions: Do my thoughts inspire me? Are my thoughts plagued with self-doubt, fear and worry?

Foolish Words

It is foolish to belittle a neighbor; a person with good sense remains silent. Proverbs 11:12 In the classic children’s movie, Bambi, there was a cute little rabbit character named Thumper. Thumper was an energetic, quick-tempered, bunny rabbit. Thumper’s mother, the level-headed, authoritative, matriarch of the family, always had words of wisdom for her babies....

Knowing Your Enemy

I’ve walked with God for a long time and one thing I know – God often gets a bad rap for what the enemy does. One of my greatest challenges in ministry is dealing with people who blame God for the disasters and failures in their lives. While some things are a result of our...

Discovering Your Reality; Truth or Lies

Several years ago one of my grandsons was struggling with passivity and a lack of motivation. Instead of getting rough on him and following some bad advice, our family decided to seek God and get to the bottom of the problem. As it played out, we discovered that he was feeling defeated, fearful and unqualified...
