What makes you a leader?
Is it your gift to teach, your gift to preach or the charismatic way that you present yourself?
Maybe it's your flashy business card, your awesome website or the fact that your videos have been seen on the internet so many times.
Is this what makes a true leader?
No, what makes a true leader is the heart to serve. Not serve oneself, but serve others.
I find that in my daily Christian walk, I've encountered more titles than leaders, this is a very sad st

It's 6 in the morning. The alarm clock is buzzing, and you're thinking to yourself, "What's the point in getting up this early for work?" For some of us, the motivation is simply the desire to shut off the clock that is vibrating off the nightstand. But for others, it is truly self-motivation. It is an internal alarm clock that motivates a person to make the best of his or her day.

God has entrusted us with his word and his Spirit to lead us all the way. The word and the Spirit are not separate components that function independently (Isa 59:21).

The Holy Spirit never puts the word aside; he makes full use of it. God can lead us in many ways, but his word is always the crucial guide and benchmark. If we think we can draw solely on the wind of the Holy Spirit, we are like a sailboat without a solid rudder.

Personal experiences, regardless of how specia

We are called to be mighty women of God. We are called to be mighty women of God. We call to be mighty women of God, say it with me. We are called to be my women of God. I don't care what you've been through. I don't care how bad your week is going I promise you you are called to be mighty. 


We need women who will pray, who will fast, who will worship who are tired of waiting on everybody else to do it. Who will keep hammering in prayer. Hammering and fasting hammering and saying you're gettin

Competition: The Heart of A Man

Jesus himself affirmed his disciples when they expressed a desire to be first. He told them exactly how to do it. Shouldn't we conclude that even Jesus understood that some people simply get more excited when they have the ability to compete against other people? If we can introduce that dynamic back into faith somehow, won't we reach a lot of men who feel that Christianity is a good story but is lacking something?

Many Christians believe that pursuing our goals goes against certain Christian beliefs and counteracts whatever plan God has in store for us. On the contrary - Scriptures encourage us to pursue our goals and achieve success.


Consider these passages from the Bible:


Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” 


1 Chronicles 4:10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless m

It says in Scripture that Jesus would wake up early in the morning and withdraw to a quiet place in order to pray. Jesus took time with God early in the morning, before the distractions of the day began. We must remove ourselves from the busyness of life and spent time in intimate communion with God.

When I first came to the Lord, the hardest thing for me to accept was love, because I didn't feel lovable as I grew closer to Christ. As I began to read his Word and for myself hear and see the examples in scripture. I realized I can be a hot mess and still be loved, and that was hard for me. It was hard for me because I didn't grow up thinking that. I really wanted to move back to california. Ihad a hard time and it was constant.

I met a lot of wonderful people, we found a Bible teaching chu

This is what Church is Looking like for some these days

Several years ago I worked with an organization that had every staff member sign a “Covenant of Harmony.”  The idea was having everyone abide by biblical principles of resolving conflict and promoting harmony, cooperation and unity within the organization.  There are many principles and instructions given in Scripture for experiencing unity.  Yet, there are so few real examples of true biblical unity in churches, ministry and

The immune system of our body defends against viruses that cause viral fever, colds, and the flu, and works as a protective shield against chronic diseases. But, as we get older, our immune system ages too and slows down. Hence, to stop the aging of our immunity, we need to keep our body healthy so that it is always ready to fight off any illnesses. While strengthening the immune system is easier said than done, several dietary and lifestyle changes may improve the functionality of our body’s na

A lack of knowledge can be a small thing or a serious thing. It's one thing to try and ride a bike if you haven't done it before it's an entirely different thing to get behind the wheel of a car without knowing what you're doing, or at least without having a teacher by your side in the same way doing life without the knowledge that god's word provides, can be very dangerous we may be under grace, but that doesn't mean that there aren't very real consequences to sin in god's world. even sin commi
