The world will be won when the church is one. The lack of unity is one of the great injustices that continues to be overlooked. The last recorded prayer we have from Jesus was about the necessity of unity. “I pray that they will all be one, just as You and I are one – as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You. And may they be in Us so that the world will believe You sent Me. I have given them the glory You gave Me, so they may be one as We are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me” (John 17:21-23).… Read the rest

You can’t pray and worry at the same time. Prayer is the most powerful resource that God has given us. Never make a decision without first going to the Lord in prayer. It must always be our weapon of choice. I’ve heard it said, “If we don’t pray, we pay.” Remember, nothing is too big for God.… Read the rest

You ARE exactly where you WANT to be. Never blame another for where you’re at. If you don’t like your surroundings, then make the necessary change(s). If you’re not happy with the outcome of your investment, then chose a new course of action. We are in control of every choice we make.… Read the rest

When you don’t feel passionate, act passionate. Never allow your feelings to determine your actions. Sometimes you have to act your way into a feeling. This is why VISION is so important. Time and time again I have to keep coming back to the WHY – and my emotions always seem to follow.… Read the rest

When we don’t show the importance of the task, we dim the all-important vision. We can’t forget WHY we do what we do – which only heightens the ‘why’ in what we do. If we don’t know where we’re going or why we do what we do, then, at best, we’re a wondering generality.… Read the rest

When output exceeds income, your upkeep will be your downfall. It’s easy to get caught up in doing and wonder why you end up feeling like you’re failing. You must take time to ensure that you are being filled up. Busyness is a sad excuse for allowing your personal self to become empty, for in the end, everybody loses.… Read the rest

We must take in to put out. If you’re not growing, then I can only wonder: What are you giving? Life is a journey, an adventure, of learning. Consider yourself always a student, and never leave the classroom of life. Our ability to truly impact another is found in our desire to continuously learn and grow ourselves.… Read the rest

Do what frees another up, not what necessarily fires you up. I’m not suggesting that we neglect ourselves for the sake of another, but I am saying don’t just live for self and always do what you want. Paul writes, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too” (Philippians 2:4). When you build another up, he/she will never let you down.… Read the rest

We are wired to worship something; the question is what? I’ve heard it said that we give the greatest amount of time to what we value the most. I can’t say I completely agree with this. But what is true is that our hearts, our passions, reveal a great deal about us. “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of” (Luke 6:45). What has you?… Read the rest

Though he was never ordained to the Catholic priesthood, Francis of Assisi is one of the most venerated religious figures in history. One of most memorable statements was, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words.” Nothing speaks louder than our own everyday lives. People get what they see.… Read the rest

I’ve heard it said that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. So it really comes down to this: either the wallpaper goes or I do. Now, think about that. Success is always about the future you choose to possess. The past is all about the paralysis of pain. So get about the living and what lies ahead rather than focusing on what has already been and cannot be changed.… Read the rest

Every successful leader knows how to make lemonade. Let’s be honest, life is filled with lemons. It’s just plain difficult at times and hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, but if we’re going to witness the hand of God, then we have to trust, endure, and find a way to make lemonade despite the hand we’ve been dealt.… Read the rest
