My Identity, Part Two

My Identity, Part Two

Earlier this week, I shared with you about our identity in Christ. The definition of identity is: the fact of being who a person is. My identity isn’t in how I feel. Some days I feel brave. Some days I don’t.  If I don’t feel brave, am I still brave? My feeling has nothing to do with it. He makes…

My Identity

“Your opinion of me is none of my business.” I am learning to find my identity in what the Father says about me, rather than people. The definition of identity is: the fact of being who a person is.

Doors of Hope

Man, do I know the feeling of, “Where exactly are you taking them?  Because this looks like a foreign land, in fact, much like a desert!”  That feeling of worry as you watch your child walk through a difficult situation or process can be frightening and painful.   This morning, while praying for several different friends, the Lord used a scripture…

Colossians 3

  What does it mean to be chosen, holy, and dearly loved?  One of the greatest burdens I carry for this generation is that they would understand that they are chosen.  That they were handpicked before time began to play their role in the Kingdom calendar at this point in history. I sit and cry watching television commercials…I can’t imagine…

10 Prayers for Your Children

Let’s start 2018 right by committing to pray for our children. Self-Control Lord, I pray that You would help our children to control themselves in their behaviors, thoughts, and motives.  God that You would give them the ability to make You the highest thing in their hearts and minds and chase hard after You. “Similarly, encourage the young men to…
