7.31.2020 – A Unified “Voice”

I’m realizing that right now, is a time that we —”the church” —are meant to be God’s “answer” and His “voice” of truth and hope to the earth. 💝☀️ But what happens when the church doesn’t have a purified, “unified voice?” Can the voice of the Lord be clearly heard through the church, to the… Read More 7.31.2020 – A Unified “Voice”

7.27.2020 – “Noise Cancellation”

Did you know that “criticism” is the same as “condemnation”? The definition of “criticism” is, “the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.” “disapproval, fault-finding, denunciation, condemnation” Perhaps we’re learning to hold our tongue when it comes to criticizing others… …but what about that “inner critic”? Do we command… Read More 7.27.2020 – “Noise Cancellation”

7.20.2020 – Dismantling these “Ticking Time Bombs”

Over the last few years, my life has felt like a time of constant “testing” — a journey of the revealing of things “hiding” deep within my heart.

I’m convinced that rejection is one of the most painful things a person can endure. There are many different forms of rejection, there are many different levels of it.

I remember a time that my heart was filled with such bitterness, I couldn’t experience and perceive God clearly.
