But David persisted. “I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death. I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! The Lord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!…” – 1 Samuel 17:34-37 (NLT)
On this journey called life, we carry an invisible back pack around with us. There are certain things, (lessons, perspectives, testimonies etc,) that we will receive as a result of enduring our current season through to the end.

So let me ask you this, are you prepared for what’s to come by being a faithful steward over your current portion?Read More »
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. – John 15:16 (NLT)

And because of the awesome God we serve He will allow road blocks to come across our path to get our attention and many times to keep us from making the wrong choice. But the sad thing is, many of us don’t have a “light-bulb” moment when incidents like this happen. Once the road block is removed and God’s grace and mercy we confuse as “luck” or “making it in just the nick of time” spare us of our demise, we continue to go about our daily lives in the same manner.

The greatest believers are those that remember they were once sinners. – The Real MaCoya
Good afternoon Ladies,
This past weekend I was scrolling across my Instagram in the popular pages section, when I stumbled across a picture of a female celebrity.

I’m sure most of you could filter through many female celebs of today, take a pick, and she would most likely fit that description. It made me think about the power of example and how the number of positive role models are practically non-existent compared to otherwise “not so positive role models.”

Now many of us struggle or have struggled with discontentment. It’s a very common emotion and can be a sign that we have high goals and expectations. But discontentment can also be a hindrance and detrimental to our spiritual walks if we dwell in it too long.
