Busy Christians Live Better Lives!Many of us have heard the sayings “misery loves company” and “smiling is contagious.”  Both of these sayings are expressing two different kinds of emotions, people who are gloomy and people who are cheerful.  The sayings are different, however, they share the same idea that people often become who they are around.  It is essential that those who are attempting to walk in their gift surround themselves with others who are also perfecting their gift.

In a previous post I explained the 10 Signs of a Great Leader.  I believe one of the most important aspects of being a great leader is to surround yourself with like-minded people.  When we encircle ourselves around like minded people we eliminate jealousy, envy, intimidation, anger and competition.

People who are busy do not have time to worry about what others are doing. Busy people are too focused on what they are trying to obtain that they do not have time to see what you are doing.  Have you realized the potential God have placed inside of you?  Or have you found yourself watching others perfect their gift?

Are You Making Rash Decisions In Your Marrige?On Sunday evening I was reading an article about a woman named Marissa Alexander.  The article stated that Marissa and her husband had recently given birth to their baby.  Marissa’s husband came home one day and questioned whether or not the baby was his and accused her of cheating on him.  The accusation turned physical and before she knew it she was running away from him to find her gun.  She grabbed her gun and fired it toward him, thankfully no one was hurt. With no prior police record, Marissa could possibly spend 60 years in jail for her one quick decision to fire a gun toward her husband. [click to continue…]

10 Signs Of A Great Leader!God has placed greatness inside of everyone, however, he expects us to search out why we were created. The bible confirms this in Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
 to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” In a previous post I explained that everyone was created with a purpose. In still, there are quite a few people who go through life never really knowing why they were created. When we understand why we are here and begin to maximize our potential we become leaders.  Being a leader is a great responsibility and God expects much from those who have acquired leadership status.

In Luke 12:48 we find this scripture “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” The dictionary defines leader as, a person or thing that leads. I believe God has called everyone to be a leader. He has created everyone uniquely.  When we grasp the concept found in Psalms 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” then we understand that everyone has something they can expose others too.  [click to continue…]

March 5, 2014

It is amazing how God can take one message given by the preacher and use it to speak to everyone at the same time in a different way.  This past Sunday the word came from Matthew the 25th chapter. The minister used this scripture passage to pose the question; will you be ready when Jesus [...]

Fight Through The Pain!

September 30, 2013

When I was a child I often believed that loving the Lord meant I wouldn’t experience pain. The truth, however, there is no way for us to get around the sensation of pain or hurt.  Once we realized that avoiding pain is inevitable our focus shifts from no pain to learning how to get through [...]

Is Questioning God A Sin?
