    “Lord,” I said, “I want to be your man, not my own. So to you I give my money, my car—even my home.” Then, smug and content, I relaxed with a smile And whispered to God, “I bet it’s been a while Since anyone has given so much—so freely?” His answer surprised me. He replied, “Not really. “Not a day has gone by since the beginning of time, That someone hasn’t offered meager nickels and dimes, Golden altars and crosses, contributions and penance, Stone monuments and steeples; but why not repentance? “The money, the statues, the cathedrals you’ve built, Do you really think...
  • Amazon shared from Understanding The Purpose And Power Of Prayer by MUNROE MYLES
    God's plan is for man to desire what He desires, to will what He wills, and to ask Him to accomplish His purposes in the world so that goodness and truth may reign on the earth rather than evil and darkness. In this sense, prayer is man giving God the freedom to intervene in earth's affairs. In other words,Prayer is earthly license for heavenly interference.
    Note: Reading this with Yvonne right now. Great explanation of prayer!

    Begin to lift your prayer life up and enlarge your prayers. When Jesus was speaking with the woman at the well, He said, “If you knew who you were talking to, you would ask more than you are asking.” Do you know who you are talking to?
    Note: When you pray, do you now who you're talking to?

    The Hebrew word for thought encompasses the idea of intentions, purposes, designs and dreams. It refers to the thoughts and purposes that fill a person’s mind. When you think about the thoughts of God, put these five words to work:     • God’s intentions for your life.     • God’s purposes for your life.     • God’s designs for your life.     • God’s thoughts for your life.     • God’s dreams for your life.
    Note: Are you thinking God's thoughts?
  • Amazon shared from Imagine: Believe in the Power of a Dream by Frank Damazio
    Imagining is not just seeing the invisible, but living the invisible through faith. It is living in a realm where reality seems to say one thing and your dream another. Faith is the realm that does not agree with your senses. It is the realm that seems to contradict reality.
    Note: Lord, open my eyes!
  • Amazon shared from Seven Declarations for an Unshakable Life by Frank Damazio
    These are powerful words, but in times of life-shaking, they can become more than just words. They become the very breath that sustains you. They are the bedrock under your feet that surges life into you when your world begins to shake. You no longer read them as simply beautiful-sounding verses from the Bible. They become a powerful force in your heart that bursts from your mouth into a faith declaration that you throw into the face of the enemy: “I am absolutely convinced, beyond the shadow of a doubt. I base my very existence on this confident determination that there is absolutely nothing...
    Note: Good word!

    It doesn’t matter what the infirmities, reproaches, needs, persecutions and distresses are. You come to a throne of grace. You come to a Sovereign Lord who reigns in power and grace. It is there you find all the help we need. It is there you find the sufficiency to stand firm in any life-shaking.
  • Amazon shared from Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by Kyle Idleman
    When you call Jesus “Lord,” you aren’t saying, “He’s the teacher—and I’m the student.” You are saying, “He’s the master and I am the slave.” That’s what it means to deny yourself.
  • Amazon shared from Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by Kyle Idleman
    So they signed up to follow Jesus, but if denying themselves was part of the explanation, it was definitely the fine print. That’s especially true of American Christians. In part, this is due to the collision of Christianity with American capitalism. It has created a culture of consumers in our churches. Instead of approaching their faith with a spirit of denial that says, “What can I do for Jesus?” they have a consumer mentality that says, “What can Jesus do for me?”
