Great expectations for 2015, catapults you off to a good start. There is a story on FB that drives this point home for me: A soldier serving in the army is often being humiliated by his sargeant because he professes to serving a living God.
On this particular day the sargeant is fed up with the soldier’s ranting about his God; he decides to make a public spectacle of him before all the other troops. He orders the soldier to go park an old army jeep in front that is totally out of commission. The soldier reluctantly admits that he can’t drive. The sargeant brazenly insist that he call on his God for help.
Following his commander’s order, he attempts to park the jeep in front. But first, he prays! Suddenly! Something miraculous occurs within him that empowers him with driving skills to park the jeep in the exact location the sargeant has ordered. He walks back over and fall in line with his troops and they are all standing there crying. They all profess simultaneously that they believe in GOD! The jeep that the soldier was ordered to park did not have a motor in it!
…with man things are impossible; with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! This is your year of possibilities!

It appears that Jesus is seemingly having some second thoughts about the task that is set before Him and really don”t want to die on the cross. Yet once He surrenders h Continue reading
The Thanksgiving Holidays for me were so beautiful and filled with the presence of God. I experienced an insurmountable measure of thankfulness and gratefulness for all He has done for me. However, the day after, I had some ME time on my hands and felt compelled to express my gratitude even more. I chose to take on the task of looking up the names of Jesus and the correlating scriptures,(A neat little project I thought). In just a short time I discovered that there were more than two-hundred different names and titles referring to Jesus and His wondrous power and authority as part of the Godhead. Continue reading
