Is He home? With you?

MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT September 29, 2019 We’ve talked about mental health and suicide prevention awareness all month. The one thing that holds true, we must continually renew our minds in Christ…not just one day but ALL the time. How can that happen? I was listening over and over again to a message from Tony Evans which referenced Ephesians 3. 13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be st

Pray or Prey?

MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT September 8, 2019 Did you know that prayer is not only a part of following Christ, it is proactive for your life? Notice how we pray when tragedy hits in our country? What would happen if we consistently prayed, not only for protection from us attacking each other but prayers against the enemy attacking our minds? When we accept the thoughts the enemy throws in our minds, we have accepted the seeds of a lie. Every action begins with a thought . A killer did not kill until he thought about it. And if you continue with evil thoughts and actions, it’s easy to become a part of your life…all because of a wicked thou
