Christ in the mist 


In the mist of your fiercest storm it’s easy to become overwhelmed.  Though Christ may delay His arrival to assist you, it is for the purpose of strengthtening  your faith.

We never know how much real faith we have until it is put to the test in some fierce storm. 

Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.

You’re Not Alone


Greetings to All

Have you taken time out to really hear what someone is saying to you (physically or verbally)?  Imagine seating behind your desk speaking to a colleague in reference to upcoming proposal, meetings and even budgets or a mate at home. 

However, their eyes display sadness but their face a smile. Another persons with a broken heart, depressed, suicidal, just trying to make it through another day just desiring a word of encouragement.  Observe those who labor around with you, a cup of coffee goes along ways.   Step outside of your comfort zone and encourage someone out of your pain or even if everything is going great in your life.  There is always a storm brew off of one of the hemispheres

The Word: 2 Corinthian 1:3-7

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.

When we suffer for Jesus, it works out for your healing and salvation. If we are treated well, given a helping hand and encouraging word, that also works to your benefit, spurring you on, face forward, unflinching. Your hard times are also our hard times. When we see that you’re just as willing to endure the hard times as to enjoy the good times, we know you’re going to make it, no doubt about it

Power Word: Rekindle the fire! 

You’re not alone.  God desire to use your “Disability for his Ability!” You’re not alone whatever the situation maybe there is a plan that will workout for your good.

Prayer:  May his Grace rest upon you removing worry, doubt, frustration, fear and depression.  Replaced the negative with inner joy, peace love, hope, a smile, positive outlook on life and strength for caregivers.

A Father’s Prayer


Build me a son, O Lord,

who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid;
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort,
but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge.

Here let him learn to stand up in the storm;
here let him learn compassion for those who fail.

Build me a son whose heart will be clear,
whose goal will be high,
a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men,
one who will reach into the future,
yet never forget the past.

And, after all these things are his,
give him, I pray, enough of a sense of humor,
so that he may always be serious,
yet never take himself too seriously.

Give him humility,
so that he may always remember the simplicity of true greatness,
the open mind of true strength.
Then I, his father, will dare to whisper,
‘I have not lived in vain.’
