Aren’t you tired of hearing preachers paint THIS picture?

“If God has called you to do it, then He’s going to pour it ALL in your lap. All you have to do is BELIEVE for it.”

Basically, they are saying, “If it’s HARD…then it must NOT be God.”

What an absolute LIE!

Paid With A Price
Everything that God asks us to do will usually COST us something.

SMALL things…not so much. But GREAT things come at a GREATER personal price.

“…and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.” Luke 12:48 (NLT)

Wasn’t it God’s WILL for Jesus to go to the cross?

How incredibly HARD was that?

Well Worth It
So many times, the thing that God puts in OUR heart comes with a great DESIRE.

That’s so we’ll have the STRENGTH and PASSION to fight for it all the way to completion.

It was LOVE, not nails, that held Jesus on the cross.

It’s called the FIGHT of faith because there IS a hard fight.

But, if the dream is worth having then it’s well WORTH fighting for!

Take Heart
Jesus warned us that things would get tough.

“…Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows.” John 16:33 (NLT)

The great news is we’re NOT fighting this HARD thing alone.

We have the HELP of Almighty God all the way through!

“…But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NLT)

Getting Through

When I look back, there were so many times in my life when things went drastically WRONG! Just like many of you, I’ve experienced FINANCIAL hardships, HEALTH issues, DIVORCE and unexpected BETRAYALS. There were tests so hard and wounds so deep that I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to MAKE IT THROUGH. Get […]

Do You Just Not Feel Good Enough?

God knows we’re NOT perfect. But He created us with specific plans in mind for our lives. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) In fact, many of The Bible’s […]

Perfectly Imperfect!

Sometimes, when we see a person on stage we ASSUME that they must’ve lived a charmed life. They were probably born with a “silver spoon” in their mouth. WRONG!!! In my case, my dad GAVE ME UP when I was two years old. When he divorced my mom, he actually claimed that he had NO […]

As We Think

I’m thoroughly convinced that life’s greatest BATTLES are won or lost in the space BETWEEN our ears? Our THOUGHTS (right or wrong) become our actions, and our ACTIONS determine our lives. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” One translation states, “As a man thinks in […]
