It is always a fight of faith when you have less and do more with it. -Bishop TD Jakes
The more you pray the more you dream and the more you dream the more you have to pray.
You have to step out in faith even when you are vibrating in fear. -Bill Hybels
The word of God is not foreign to routine reality; it is at the very heart of it. Dallas Willard
Even closed doors are invitations to those determined to knock. Pastor Chris Hill
Look back at the ground you have covered and applaud yourself for making it thus far. Give God the praise even when the goal seems afar. TD Jakes
Confession: Over the past few months it has been hard to trust the goodness of God…when every door, window and crack we have sought has been closed. But, the compassion of so many Christians over the past 30 months have been the paint stokes of his presence. When it seemed like God had wandered off…it has been the Body of Christ that allowed us to retrace our steps back.
It is true, he may hide his face, but in the Body of Christ he never turns his back…it is the place that he continually reveals his glory.
The greatest difficulty in living the Christian life is learning to live your life desperate for God when your circumstances are not.
If a man has greatness in him, it comes to light, not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of his daily work. -Baryl Markham
I have learned that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse. -Philip Yancey
When you lose vision, go back to the place where you last had it, and start over again from there.
We often pray for signs, wonders & miracles & then spend our lives avoiding any kind of context where a miracle can happen.
The presence of God has always been the greatest advertisement of the church. Get the presence, people will be impacted. – Sean Smith
Every staff pastor needs a senior pastor who is secure enough in his own calling to release them fully into theirs.
