Give It Up
by Ministry Support on October 3rd, 2022
“Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.” - Acts 3:19  It’s time for a shift. I pray that you are ready for God to lead you into this next season to do all that He has called you to do. Now is the time. He is ready. The question is, are you?  Sometimes the only thing delaying us from the promises and blessings of God is us. More specifically, we are delayed by...  Read More

by Ministry Support on October 1st, 2022

I Still Struggle…
by Ministry Support on July 28th, 2022
“Because He Himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.” - Hebrews 2:18When you read the story of Abraham, you see a clear Achilles heel. From Genesis 12 to 20, we see a 25-year span between Abraham committing the same sin. In Genesis 12, we saw him lie to the king of Egypt about his relationship to his wife, and in Genesis 20, he does it again.Apparently,...  Read More

Get God For Yourself
by Ministry Support on July 9th, 2022
“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” - Hebrews 11:6   Over the last week, we have talked about letting go. The reality is if you want to reach your full potential and pursue God’s will, you have to let go of whatever it is that is holding you back. If you have read any of t...  Read More

by Ministry Support on May 8th, 2022
“So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” - Luke 15:20We do not see it often, but trains do still derail from time to time.

God Will Show Up
by Ministry Support on April 2nd, 2022
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” - Revelation 3:20As we discussed yesterday, God is not just “out there somewhere.” He is a personal God who wants a personal relationship with you.

A Personal God
by Ministry Support on April 1st, 2022
“For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.” - Isaiah 43:3Growing up I used to watch old television shows and sitcoms that were popular back in the 50s and 60s. In those shows, I’d often see something that was quite shocking. Whenever people got sick, doctors would take the time to come to the home of the person needi...  Read More

Open The Door… Before You Clean House
by Ministry Support on August 8th, 2021
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” - Revelation 3:20-21  When it comes to having guests over, everyone knows the drill. Before the guests ...  Read More

Fear of Walking Away
by Ministry Support on June 19th, 2021
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ” - Isaiah 41:10    Over the last few days we have covered why we miss signs when it comes to getting in (or out) of relationships, and the reasons we often ignore or dismiss these signs.

Are You Comfortably Uncomfortable?
by Ministry Support on June 18th, 2021
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” - Isaiah 43:18-19  The past couple of days we have talked about missing the signs. Yesterday, we discussed one reason we miss signs is because of the pressure that time is running out. But maybe for you there ...  Read More

Time is (NOT) Running Out
by Ministry Support on June 17th, 2021
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” - Ecclesiastes 3:1    Over the course of this month, we talked about the story of Abigail marrying Nabal and the trouble that marriage gave her. She missed all the warning signs, and as a consequence, she ended up in a bad marriage. Like Abigail, many people find themselves in an unfulfilling relationship because they ig...  Read More

Don’t Miss The Signs
by Ministry Support on June 16th, 2021
“Do not be unequal yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” - 2 Corinthians 6:14 Before entering into a relationship, do you consider everything you have learned and observed about the person or do you simply jump in without any concerns? Or worse, do you ignore those concerns and believe those issues are not a bi...  Read More

Bury The Hatchet Pt. 1
by Ministry Support on June 7th, 2021

What Value Do They Have?
by Ministry Support on June 5th, 2021
“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.” - Proverbs 12:26 There is a quote that says “You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully.” While this quote is not taken directly from Scripture, there is a lot of truth to it, and perhaps it is the reason the Bible talks so much about choosing your friends carefully. The qu...  Read More

Is Your Relationship Complementing You?
by Ministry Support on June 4th, 2021
“And you have been made complete in Christ, which is head over every ruler and authority.” - Colossians 2:10 Does your relationship complement you or complete you? This is an important question you should consider when thinking about who you are, not only in your relationship, but in all areas of your life. For many, their relationship completes them. They go into the relationship, often broken an...  Read More

It’s Going To Take More Than That
by Ministry Support on June 3rd, 2021
“A certain man in Maon, who had property there at Carmel, was very wealthy. He had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep, which he was shearing in Carmel. His name was Nabal and his wife’s name was Abigail. She was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was surly and mean in his dealings— he was a Calebite.” - 1 Samuel 25:2-3   As we read today’s key passage, let’s take a look at ...  Read More

Undeserved Blessings
by Ministry Support on April 15th, 2021
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)A colleague of mine told me about a friend of his son who often spent the night with their family. They would pick him up and take him to dinner with them, take him shopping at the mall, and effectively enabled him to live as if he was one of the family.  That young man ...  Read More

Keep On Waiting
by Ministry Support on February 5th, 2021
Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. (Luke 2:25-26)Few things are more frustrating in life than waiting.  For the impatient-at-heart, waiting can liter...  Read More

The Lord Is Your Only Guarantee
by Ministry Support on October 23rd, 2020
When David and his men came to the city, they found it burned down, and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept, until they had no more strength to weep. David’s two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam of Jezreel, and Abigail the widow of Nabal of Carmel. David was in great danger; for the people spoke of sto...  Read More

Faith With Action

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty or have to keep coming here to draw water.” – John 4:13-15  The journey...  Read More
