Its the Most LONELIEST Time of the Year...

      Remember that old Christmas classic?!  With the one exception is that loneliest should be wonderful....Why are you not having a wonderful Christmas every year? Maybe mom and dad are gone...maybe you are the only living relative..There is a whole slew of excuses to moan and groan like a scrooge. Maybe you once had some much to live for and now you do not feel like living anymore...Depression has took over and your heart is hurting so much, that you ache from what once way...

     I pray that this post may reach at least one person who doesn't have anything left to live for. maybe you think of yourself as a book that has been written and read.  The Lord wants you to know that He never ended your life. If you are alive there is always something to live for...It might be a grand opportunity to volunteer or serve in a community service.  

     No matter what, if you are alive then God has not finished with you yet!!!  Give more of  your heart to God than ever before.  Let him be th…

Obeying the Call!!

     "My biggest downfall is not praying like I should. I confess this here and now to God and ask for His mercy in forgiveness, in not praying like I know I should be doing."
     It just seems that I get easily distracted in the events of the day and at times fail to even try.  

     For me it is easy to get my eyes on Him in worship, but having a heart stirred to compassionate intercession for others, is what the Father looks for...for someone to stand in the gap as His Spirit leads us...to pray that hedge of protection...

     In every christian's life, prayer is one of the toughest things to be committed daily to.  

     There are seasons in life when our prayer life seems to be barren and dry.. We know we are not where we should be in praying for others... 

     We desperately need a strong touch of God's Spirit to awaken our heart to intercession! Now is not the time or place to have a dormant prayer life.

      Dormant is defined as inactive, as in slumber, inopera…

Part 1: Taking off Your Disquise!!

True grace in its purest form is not a easy place to find and to stay in  that continual fellowship with the Holy Spirit...  Abiding in God's all-consuming presence is even paying a higher price in shredding that sin that easily entangles and suffocates our spirit.

     The grace of God is not a license to sin giving you free reign to do as you please...I believe that some Christians take that to mean that they can keep sinning.  Now that is nothing more than the worst kind of delusional thinking - by thinking you can get away with it, and calling it grace.  You will not escape the stronghold of whatever sin you believe you can get away with. There is no "easy grace" to lean on.  If you do not repent and ask and receive God's forgiveness you will not escape the wrath and destruction of sin's devastation.

     The grace of God does not exempt you from reaping what you sow, good or bad...you will reap the consequences of the results of the awful stain of sin within y…

Healing Grace - Testimony

 What I don't tell people up front, is that I struggle with a mental illness.   I have received so much of a negative reaction in the past that only select few have known.  

     I have had 3 mental breakdowns since I was 22 years old. I have been in and out of  hospitals on various occasions. 

     In 2002 I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, after such a severe breakdown that left my marriage of twelve years in shambles.  That was very awakening and sobering day when I realized that I had a malady that could be treated.  

     I went without a diagnosis and medicine for many years.  It never occurred to me or anyone else around me, for me to get outside help from a doctor and take medicine for it.   Besides the point I had associated half my life in a denomination that believed you have to look for demons behind every corner...

     I can not spend my life afraid of the devil, God has given me a sound mind by me "taking my medicine" to combat and overcome all that …
