If just learning from your mistakes builds good character then all of us would have it! However, learning from mistakes simply teaches us how not to do the same thing again or the same thing the same way again.  The decisions that we make after learning the lessons can either build "Bad" character or "Good' character. Character development is similar to building blocks. There are many different blocks on our life’s journey of building...

As I heard the woman of God encourage the parishioners from the pulpit, a rush of hope jetted through my body.  Though it felt like the streams of hope were traveling at record speeds, they stopped at each major vital vein and artery depositing its power and leaving traces of its presence.  I bet a million of my cells could be a witness to this awesome Word. It felt as if every organ could stand up and testify.  Just as my heart was about to do back flips, I yelled “Thank you Jesus!”

So what happens when you lose your job, the house is in foreclosure, your spouse leaves, your children raises up against you and the doctor presents a bad report?  Now if this is not ALL of hell breaking loose, then the feeling is pretty close! Probably for some of us, if just one of these events would take place in our lives, things will fall apart.  Frankly, it’s very easy to just give up and throw in the towel during these raging storms. The difficult task in all of this is staying the course...

While He was on the Earth, Jesus showed the disciples how to pray, teaching them to pray as He prayed, because they had asked Him to do so. His life, including His prayer life, was an example to them and to us. Not only did He show them how to pray but also He taught them what to pray for. The prayers of Jesus, along with those of His disciples, helped the Kingdom of God to actually come about...

We go through life and into places searching for something of value, something that will satisfy our desire or deep longing, but instead we find the same ‘old’ things and they aren’t what we’re looking for or what we want. We look in “box” after “box”; situation after situation, person after person, one thing after the other. We know what we think we want or at least have a vision of it—it’s beautiful and valuable and will complete our deepest desire..

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.  Matthew 4:23  (KJV)  You can draw the anointing of Jesus into your life to the point that it works all the time.  God's intentions are clearly written in the word of God. God sent Jesus, The Son of Love, to heal all.

Everyone wants to be successful. The question is how do you measure success? I like Winston Churchill's definition better: Success is going from one failure to another without losing your enthusiasm. A Gallup Poll conducted on 1,500 prominent people revealed five common traits of successful people- common sense, knowing one's field, self-reliance, general intelligence, and the ability to get things done. Is that all there is to success? Jesus responds...

My eyes were on the prize, a nice gold medal and cash to take home.  I was set.  (You see, everyone in this race would get the prize.  All he had to do was finish.)  No one could stop me from getting to the finish line.  Nothing could hold me back.  I had practiced; I had rehearsed the stride in my mind over and over again.  The weather would be perfect, my body would feel great.  I was prepared, and there was no turning back now.  These were my thoughts.  I knew I could...

He has outlined a concrete agenda that addresses every concern anyone has or will ever have. He's got a healthcare plan that's literally out of this world and promises eternal life. He has an excellent plan to end the war; the war in our minds, the war in our homes, in our marriages, in our finances, in our everyday situations. He understands that his soldiers are on the battlefield of life fighting the enemy everyday.
