I Identify With…

I attended the Rise Up event in Washington D.C., yesterday. I’m still pretty tired and my body is sore (intercessory prayer is no joke!), but feeling tremendously blessed that I was able to take part in such a powerful time of intercessory prayer for our nation. The event’s tagline was “Prepare Like Esther, Arise Like…

Rise Up

I’ll be heading to Rise Up in Washington D.C. today, so there isn’t much time for writing. I will leave here a teaching that goes along with the warrior theme that we have found ourselves in. I encourage you to take some time to listen to “Six Signs of a Rising Warrior” by John Paul…

Stand Firm

Yesterday, I talked about the temptation of Jesus and how the enemy attacks. Using the same Scripture, I would like to talk a bit about authority. Knowing who we are in Christ helps us to understand the authority we have, so that we can withstand any attack from Satan. Then Jesus was led by the…

Know Your Enemy

Day before yesterday, I talked about the baptism of Jesus and how God, Himself, declared who Jesus was and how He felt about Him.

October is a pretty busy month for our family, so writing and posting everyday will be a bit of a challenge. On the super busy days, my plan is to post a quick “YOU” statement. Just a little something to meditate on, as a reminder of who you are. Today’s YOU statement is: YOU are…

For God So Loved…

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. John 3:16-17 John 3:16 is probably the most…

Why Identity Matters

Why Identity Matters When talking about identity, a good place to start is to talk about why it even matters. “Identity is the foundation on which our individual uniqueness rests. Identity secures that which satisfies the deepest longings of our lives. The ground of our identity, whether rock solid or shifting sand, impacts our self-esteem…

Psalm of Thanksgiving (Sunday Praise & Worship)

David’s Psalm of Thanksgiving On that day David decreed for the first time that thanks be given to the Lord by Asaph and his relatives: Give thanks to Yahweh; call on His name; 
proclaim His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him; sing praise to Him;
 tell about all His wonderful works! Honor His holy…
