• Today, I felt called to share this Powerful Prayer from the book I recently received called "Unbound" by Neal Lozano. Heavenly Father, I praise you for all you are and thank you for all that you have given me. You are my Creator and have redeemed me through the Blood of Jesus Christ, your Son, and you have sealed me with the Holy Spirit for the Day of Redemption. …Bind yourself to Jesus… In Jesus’ Name, I bind my whole person – heart and desires, soul and spirit, body and...

  • I remember when I was 10 years old and entered an essay contest.  The topic was "What Memorial Day means to me" I ended up winning and remember reading it...not a dry eye in the house. I was blessed to have parents who taught me what it was to sacrifice not only for our family ...but for others.  To think that I am able to sit here and type this because someone I don't even know cared enough to give their life for my freedom.  It truly is something to...

  • (Note: If you prefer, I have made an audio for you, below :) What if I told you that in every problem there was a blessing? I'm sure you'd think I must be free of problems...but..I assure the Heavenly Father has not made an exemption in my case!  My own life is proof that there IS a blessing in every problem and Lord knows I've had many (He knows because He allowed me to experience them!)I was listening to a young man speak about this very topic.He brought up the...

  • I've been chatting with a few close friends and told them that I feel as if the Lord has been testing me.  I'm sure you might feel the same way at times.  He allows us to go through hard times, stressful times and times of feeling like we are wandering through the desert alone. Sometimes we feel completely abandoned....at least I have.  Why?  I think Deuteronomy 8:2 sums it up nicely..."in order to know what was in your heart"  If your faith is weak...you would never know it if your...
