Leveraging the season with your family December 5, 2017
Don’t get caught up in the artificial pressure of the holidays. Be more concerned about the HOLY this season than the hype. As the song says—FALL ON YOUR KNEES AND WORSHIP THE KING, don’t fall into more debt. Don’t lose the season in worry about things being perfect. Focus on the WONDER that the King of kings came because He loves us—and it changed everything.
Run with Gratitude November 28, 2017
We all want to run to get the prize. We all want to make a difference. That’s what this I’M IN Series has been about. Do you know there’s one key thing that every one of us can do to make this happen?
A Thanksgiving Prayer November 22, 2017
When you pray this Thanksgiving, I’m pretty sure I know what will make your list: your salvation, your family, your health, blessings over the past year . . . like perhaps a promotion, a new job, graduation, a new child, and maybe for some of you even a sports win.
But recently I read a prayer that directed my thinking in a different way, so I’m going to spend some time this year praying this prayer. Perhaps you will want to as well.
Run with Perserverance November 21, 2017
Paul urges followers of Jesus Christ, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way to get the prize” (1 Corinthians 9:24 NIV). The prize is not heaven, the prize is a crown for those who discipline themselves to serve Christ and help people come to know Him.This is what every single believer is called to do, and it takes perseverance to do it in such a way as to win.
Run with Generosity November 16, 2017
Generosity is more than random acts of giving. Everybody gives, but not everybody is generous. When someone says we don’t give or we aren’t generous, we tend to think protectively and think of the one time.
