The Service Mindset

service mindset Jul 20, 2019
 

Having a service mindset is a big deal. When you have a service mindset, a lot changes, it makes a huge difference, not only in other people’s lives but your own as well. It benefits you! I’m not saying you shouldn’t pay attention to yourself. To be good at serving others, you must take care of yourself so that you can give more of yourself to others. For example, on an airplane, they give you the safety speech where they warn you if the oxygen mask comes down then should put it on yourself first and then help those around you. God wants you to care for yourself.

God gave us the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds, and the teachers to equip the saints for the work of ministry. It’s for the building up of the body of Christ. It’s all about building up the body of Christ. My point is that there are a lot of different things that people were called to do. And we are now still called to do. Whatever it may look like for you. If...

I Believe in My Purpose!

purpose Jul 15, 2019
 

Today we are going to talk about purpose. I absolutely LOVE this subject! A lot of times we’re talking about our plans in life, but I like to use the word purpose because it means there’s a purpose behind what you’re doing. There may be several different plans in place. I might keep messing up on plan A, B, or plan C. Thank God we have a merciful, graceful God.

Purpose is a subject that should be talked about more often. If someone is missing their purpose, then I believe the body as a whole is affected. So when I talk about purpose, let me just say that personally, I believe that everyone has a purpose. When you are in the family of God, He has an individual purpose for us all.

You will hear me mention this a lot, but I believe we should be living out the gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. We should be living that Christ-like life and living toward our purpose. Within this, we all might have different callings. We’re not all cookie cutter and meant for...

Acting in Faith

faith Jul 04, 2019
 

 

"If you believe, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed that you, you can say to a mountain and you can move the mountain," Jesus very clearly states that only a little faith is required to see miraculous things. 

It's our responsibility to operate in faith.

Some ways that we can start growing in faith is, first of all, walking out in it, which begins by spending time with your father. I mean, gosh, we have lost that. Let's spend more time in the prayer closet and with scripture. And let's not just talk and ask God for things. But let's also listen, because sometimes we ask and he's answering and we just aren't listening.

Hey, I'm guilty of this too. I am walking and growing just like you. We need to remember that we have to start with foundational faith. It doesn't start with us and we know that it's not about us. It's about him, but it's also about us decreasing so that he can increase.

Remember, Jesus told us that we can do greater works than these...

Mountain Moving Faith

 

Let's talk about faith! There's a big misconception when it comes to faith. To overcome, we need to learn more about who and what we are in Christ, what we become when we accept Christ, our identity, our authority, and our dominion here on Earth along with the importance of partnering with God. Now I know that could sound ridiculous. Partnering with God? Surely God doesn't need us as a partner. I understand that. Obviously, he doesn't. I believe that God is a big, big God. He created us. He doesn't need us, but this is how he chose to operate here on earth, and therefore he does need us to operate in the way and matter we were created to. Scripture tells us this, but we miss it often. And due to this, we can find ourselves begging God, in an attempt to almost manipulate him, we find ourselves begging him to do something that he's already told us to do all while missing what we've been equipped with and the fact that the same spirit that rose Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in you...

Heirs to the Kingdom

John 1:12: But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... 

We have all received the incredible gift of being children of God. When we accepted Jesus into our lives this relationship framed our understanding of the world around us. We examine our lives through the lens of the bible and attempt to live according to the rules within. Some may say that rules are bad. I believe that the rules that are given to us in the bible serve as a blueprint for godly living, but also for experiencing the beauty of God's love here on earth. 

As children of God, we are heirs to the kingdom. This means we should protect and preserve the integrity of God's kingdom and of the church. The church is meant to correspond to the body of believers and not to a single physical structure. We are the church. 

Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God...

We are meant to live as spiritual...

10 Steps to Achieving Your Dreams

destiny dreams Feb 15, 2019

We shouldn't compromise on our dreams. If God has placed something on your heart, honor that desire. We can easily fall into complacency and neglect the true calling that burns in our hearts because we perceive our lives to be going well. We don't want to rock the boat by facing a new challenge.

1. IDENTIFY YOUR DREAM. The first step is figuring out what your dream is. What has God placed on your heart? Whether is a career-driven goal or simply a lifestyle goal, focus on the thing that you want most. 

2. VISUALIZE WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. The second step is figuring out what needs to take place to make that dream come true. Come up with a game plan of achievable short term goals that lead up to the greater goal of making the dream happen! 

3. ISOLATE THE FIRST THING. Now that you have determined what needs to take place, you should really focus on the FIRST thing that needs to take place. For example, if you would like to be an entrepreneur, the first thing may be to...

Freedom From Your Past

guilt past present shame Dec 31, 2018

Finding freedom from your past is one of the most important steps towards improving your current life. We can find ourselves lost in past events that we can no longer change or control. We attach past experiences to current circumstances and our progress stagnates. We may believe that we are protecting ourselves. A past relationship may have ended badly so we approach our new relationships with a guarded heart. We do not give ourselves fully to our partner because the past event still has a hold on our lives. This ends up unfairly affecting our current partner and preventing us from moving forward with our lives. 

The bible very clearly describes how we are to address past events. We shouldn't dwell on them. We focus on the newness that God provides. When we feel lost in the wilderness and without direction, He paves a way for us. He finds us in our lostness and guides us towards the direction of most hope and peace. 

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on...
