This week’s blog will start with a question. The question is, “Are you living your life in abundance or out of a deficit? I’m presenting the question to you the same way I heard it in my prayer time one morning. I’ve pondered the above question for a while now. Those of you who have… Continue reading Deficit Versus Abundance
I’ve been thinking a lot about the word cultivate over the last couple of weeks. One definition of the word is ‘to nurture and help grow.’ I like that definition because it speaks to me of building up, not tearing down. When I was a new believer in Christ, I saw that the Word of… Continue reading Who is Cultivating Your Life?
In the last couple of blog posts, I have discussed what happens when we put off the old man and recognize our foundation in Christ. Here are key thoughts from those two blog posts and then we can move forward. When we are born, we are born into a life that is influenced by the… Continue reading When the Old Becomes New

Once they identify and release their pain, the less they have need of a coping mechanism. The past couple of weeks I have been working on a challenge. It was a… Continue reading Surrender the Pain
