First of all, I realize that beginning a blog post with the phrase God Sees You can seem rather ominous but please continue reading and you’ll see that I mean it in the most loving way possible. Anyone who reads the Bible is bound to have at least one story that just throws them for a loop. For some, it’s the story of Cain and Able (Genesis 4). For others, it’s the story of Tamar (2 Samuel 13) or the fact that Solomon had 700 wives (1 Kings 11). For me, it was the story of Leah (Genesis 29). … More 13 | Promises of God | God Sees You
“No weapon formed against you will prosper” is one of those scriptures that can often be used in a very cliche manner…Car Trouble?…No Weapon formed against you will prosper. Difficulties at Work?….No Weapon formed against you will prosper. We hear it so often it can be very easy to disregard its power.

So what better way than to have a constant reminder of His word? ‘ahm i right?!’ … More Promises of God | Pro-Tip | Creative Ways to Carry the Word with You
In the book Battlefield of the Mind, Joyce Myers talks about how important it is, in your Christian walk to really take preeminence over your thoughts. Something that’s really important because as Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) puts it for as a man thinketh…so is he… and Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) succinctly states, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything flows from it”.
In short, these passages stress the importance of being mindful of your thoughts because your thoughts run your life. When satan tricked Eve he did it through her thoughts, … More 9 | Promises of God | You can Use Scripture to Overcome Negative Thoughts
I, like so many others I know, are recovering perfectionists. I have a number of ideas as to the origin of my perfectionism but the overwhelming thought I had for most of my life was that I needed to achieve and perform perfectly because as Ricky Bobby most eloquently put it, “if ya ain’t first you’re last” … More 8 | Promises of God | You Don’t have to be Perfect for God to use You
Earlier this month I wrote about a devotional I shared in a semi-public forum. The topic of the devotional was centered around persevering through seasons of weariness and how the word gives us the perfect encouragement to do just that, persevere. … More 6 | Promises of God | You will Reap if you Faint Not
Growing up in a Southern Baptist church my mom would always sing this song called “Order My Steps”. She would sing it literally all the time (hey mom) and as a child, I remember thinking “wow, mom really likes this song…” … More 4 | Promises of God | Your Steps are Ordered
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5 Have you ever been in a seemingly impossible situation? I certainly have and for me, in those times of absolute confusion, I … More 2 | Promises of God | You are Never Alone
For the past 2 years, I have wanted to compile 365 promises of God that could be shared each day as encouragement. But I have really struggled to find the time… It literally just dawned on me that often times we try to do things in our own strength when God has called us to … More 1 | Promises of God | God will Help You
