The Secret To Joy - Embracing Your Season

One of the fastest paths to discontent with your life and resentment with God is not embracing the season you’re in. Not every season is fun, but every season is necessary. Look at nature. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter all serve specific and unique purposes. You can’t have spring without winter, and you won’t have fall without Summer. God works through seasons. The bible tells us there is a time and season for EVERYTHING. Embracing your season will set you up to have joy, peace, and purpose no matter what you’re facing. However, if you don’t understand what kind of season you’re in then you’ll pursue things out of God’s timing and grow frustrated. You may even begin to feel as if God’s abandoned you…

Why You May Be Struggling To Hear God & How To Push Through It

“Why can’t I hear God?”. I asked myself this question everyday for three months. When I prayed, I heard nothing. When I worshiped, I felt nothing . I constantly wondered how long this would last and if I’d ever feel God’s presence and hear God clearly again. Before I go on, I want to elaborate on what “hearing” God means. I’m not talking audibly hearing his voice. For me, hearing God means having a thought pop into my head that isn’t my own OR having a strong impression to take a very specific action. Everyone hears God differently, so keep in mind what that looks like for you. If you’re experiencing this right now, I want to encourage you. I know it’s frustrating and devastating, but it’s not forever. This is something that can and will change as long as you don’t give up. I won’t pretend to know all the complexities of God’s ways or your situation,

The Purpose of Your Wilderness Season

A wilderness season is a make or break kind of season. Its purpose is to free you from sin and bondage so you can be transformed into the person God has called you to be.  Going into the wilderness or dessert is rough and it may seem worse than the place you left. You’ll be tempted to go back to your past, not because it’s good, but because it’s familiar. This is a new place with new challenges, and you may not know how to handle them.  It will be tough, nut if you want to progress in God’s plan for your life, it’s necessary. A wilderness is defined as an uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable region. Do any of these things

How the Enemy Distracts Us & How You Can Overcome It

If the enemy can’t destroy you he will distract you. His goal is simple, He comes to steal, kill and destroy.  You see, our adversary is predictable and uses the same old tricks time and time again. It is up to us to stay alert and seek God’s wisdom so that we won't fall prey to the enemy. As defined by, to Distract can mean: to draw away or divert, as the mind or attention, to disturb or trouble greatly in mind; beset, to provide a pleasant diversion for; amuse; entertain, to separate or divide by dissension or strife. Distractions typically comes when you have a breakthrough or decide…

Let’s Talk About Fasting - It's Not What You Give Up, But You Gain

f you had the ability and power to break free from bondage, to see God do the miraculous in your bleak situation, or receive amazing revelation from God about your life, would you use it? God has given us this power through the gift of His Holy Spirit and gift of fasting. Although we’ve been given this gift, we don’t use it to it’s full ability, and some of us don’t use it at all. Maybe because we don’t understand it, or because it seems too hard. In Matthew 6 Jesus teaches His disciples about prayer and fasting and says to them,“When you fast…”. Did you catch that? He said when not if

3 Essential Keys to Resting in God and Preventing Spiritual Burnout

Are you worn out? Do you feel weighed down by everything you’re doing or trying to do? I was in the same position a few months ago, juggling so many things and trying my best to please God. It’s not that I was physically tired, more like emotionally and spiritually drained. I kept asking myself, “Why do I feel so tired?“. Then the Holy Spirit said to me, “You’re tired because you’re not resting.”

We all need rest. Without it, we’ll burn out. This principle is true spiritually just as much as it’s true physically. If you’re spiritually drained or overwhelmed it’s likely because you are not resting in God.

Overcoming the Fear of Surrendering EVERYTHING to God

ear can be defined as “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat”. This is the kind of fear that keeps us from giving our all to God because we think doing so will threaten our ability to enjoy our life and be happy. Actually, that’s what sin does. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Fear says, “God isn’t able to meet THAT need in your life.”, “Don’t share your faith, you’ll be embarrassed when they reject you”, “If you continue being abstinent you’ll be single forever”,

To The One Who Feels Ashamed and Condemned

There came a time when I silenced God’s voice. When I stepped out of His will and followed my own desires. It began as discontentment, progressed to lying and secrets, and finally ended in depression.  Sin is like that, only showing you the pleasure, never revealing the consequence and pain. It promises you a high, but what you don’t see is depth of the fall. One sin always leads to another.  It starts off small, but ends in devastation.

What Entertains You is Training You

"What entertains you is the same thing that trains you", the Holy Spirit whispered that to me one day as I was browsing through Netflix, looking for something to watch. Did you know that everything you choose to watch, read, and listen to has a spiritual affect on you.?  You may think, No, it's just entertainment, It's no big deal,  It's just a show/song/book, but that couldn't be further from the truth. As a believer you have to be mindful of the media you intake because it is planting a seed
