Run to Win Feb ’20

What does patience look like? For you have need of patience, that after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise. Hebrews 10:36 People often throw in the towel and quit when they don’t see results as quickly as they want. I am amazed at how short-lived some people’s faith really is.

A very happy new year to you all. Last year I spoke about getting your body in shape. Well let’s talk about getting our finance in shape. Do you really want to get your finances in shape?

Purposefully making Christ the focus of the Christmas season. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Run to win (October)

The most important requirement. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:2. People frequently ask, how does God choose whom He wants to use?

Run to win (August)

Worship in Spirit and in truth What is worship?  What is worship to you?  Most people would say it’s a time during service where we sing. And that’s partly true.  Singing is a part of worship, but that’s not all of it. Worship is more than that, so don’t get caught up on the singing. Some of my greatest worship experience is without singing at all. Worship is the…

Faith stand still. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

However, in this moment when he is pushing his hardest you must be aware that you stand at a…

Run to win (May)

If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18 (AMP) Do your best to be at peace with everyone. Do you know anyone who rubs you up the wrong way so badly that when you walk away from that person you feel you’re about to explode? Does it seem like that person always says something so rude, unkind, impolite, or insulting that it nearly…
