India Crusade 2015 – Confidence in God

Provision in its smallest form requires thanksgiving and a confidence that the God that provided now will provide again, even bigger. That's why, when David faced Goliath, he had confidence that the Lord that delivered the bear and the Lion into his hands, will do the same with this uncircumcised Philistine. It's the confidence I just had as I attempted to salvage a situation with my mom's car, just before I sat down to write you. One of the front tires had irrevocably declined and needed to be changed. Stuck at night in a gas station without the know how to maneuver, [...]

Here is Why You Don’t Get!

I recently had lunch with the Vice President of a top Insurance firm who had been in senior management for over 20 years. I asked her about her secret for longevity in the corporate world. She said, it is to anticipate what the boss wants. Take something from the plate of the boss and execute it. That was it. That was what she had done for 20 years and had risen dramatically through the ranks. I thought that nugget of wisdom was interesting and worth bringing to you today. Think about that for a minute.

Influence Runs Deep. Who is Your Mentor?

I was pretty good at soccer back in the day. My secret was that I modeled my game after an accomplished player. Many times, it was Luis Figo. Other times, it was Thierry Henry or Jay Jay Okocha. In my mind, I was transformed to that player, and so I ran like they did, handled the ball like they did and even put out my tongue like they did, if they did. But not just soccer, this has also parlayed to all aspects of my life and ministry. Great mentor-ship has been my secret. It has opened the right doors [...]

Live fully in the present, but be mindful of the future

Have you seen the movie 300? It is the story of how King Leonidas and 300 brave Spartans went into battle against a 100,000 strong Persian army - and almost won. It is one of my favorite movies because it reminds me of the actual battle Gideon fought with the Midianites in the Bible - and won. Gideon with the 300 men recommended by God, won a resounding battle over a Medianite army as vast as Grasshoppers in a valley.   The Criteria Prior to the battle, God ordered Gideon to send home any soldier that was afraid. 22,000 full grown men [...]

The crowd was seated and enthusiastic. As I looked out to the beautiful faces, I mostly saw young men and women, that was expected. What particularly caught my attention were the ministers seating in the front row. Nodding their heads in agreement, shouting an occasional 'Amen', throwing their hands forward in salute of a revelation. Hands supporting their chins, eyes squinted as they took in the message. My voice grew louder as I heard them, a bounce came into my step as I saw them leap to their feet to rejoice. This I thought was what it was meant to [...]

When The Sacred is Torn From Your Life…And You Survive

First let me say thank you for your inspiration, it been a blessing. Like you God has been instrumental in the last few years in teaching me that in order to do anything and for it to be successful I need to place Him first. Eight years ago my world as I knew it changed on one faithful day June 16th, 2008 when my husband of almost 25 years was killed in an auto accident. He died 3 day before what would have been our 25th wedding anniversary, almost 28 years together. He was killed by someone under the influence. I had [...]
