Yesterday marked a new chapter in my life. Friday was my first day at work for Calvary Christian Center. God has opened the door for me to work with this awesome ministry full time as a graphic designer and art director. I looking forward to what God is going to do through me with this ministry. Calvary is a great place with an incredible staff. If you have not experienced Calvary I encourage you to check it out. Peace!
What has God asked us to do but we declined and let fear paralyze our faith?
How many times has God position us to succeed and opened doors but we just sat there?
Sometimes we may find ourselves just sitting in neutral when God is ready for us to move. We are not moving forward in life and even risk being able to be pushed backwards by the enemy through negative thoughts, a negative tongue and fear. We can’t let our God given opportunities pass us by.
Personal Change is so important to succeed. Let’s change the way we think. God is BIG, so lets think BIG. It’s not cool putting God in a box. Let’s become more positive thinkers. Let’s speak life into ourselves and others. The bible says there is power in the tongue. Let’s step out of our comfort zones. Comfort zones will lock our doors of opportunity for growth.
With God being the head of our lives and through discipline, hard-work, love and faith we can change. Change can be a wonderful gift. Change can make a positive difference in our lives! I know I have some things I can change.
Let’s move forward in life! What will you change today?
Sunday was an incredible day and I have a lot to be thankful for. Each day, it is like God reveals to me more and more why I had to go through the things I went through growing up. I have truly came a long way through the mercy, grace and favor of God. I thank God for my amazing family, friends, career and a phenomenal church. Calvary is da BOMB! Words can’t describe how cool the ministry and staff is! Yesterday, Calvary celebrated 10 years with Pastors Raley, Troy and their wives. They have truly been a blessing and have deposited so much into my life. I thank God for them. I know that I have grown so much under their ministry out of the four years I’ve attended Calvary and lived in the FLA.
Thank you Jesus!
Boogie On Down 2
From left to right: Lacey, Pasha, Sabra, Neil, Lauren & Danny
Well everyone, tonight we will find out what two next contestants will get voted off. This has been an awesome season so far! In the past, there has never been a female winner but I think the guys or in for it this season.
I think Sabra or Lacey have the best chances of winning this year. Danny on the other has been pretty consistent throughout the season, up until last week with his hip-hop routine. Hip-Hop dance is just not his style. Right now, it is kind of tough for me to narrow it down to one dancer I think will win. I am torn between Lacey and Sabra. They are both energetic, consistent, have incredible techniques and are overall amazing performers. They both really get into their characters. I guess we will just have to see what happens.
God Out of The Box
This is an amazing read! The Author, Chuck Ripka, explains Just that in this book — taking “God Out of The Box”. Ripka explains how we limit ourselves and what God can do in our lives. One of the main reasons we limit ourselves is through a lack of obedience. When we can fully and truly trust God and obey Him, He will then be able to do the extraordinary in our lives.
The author also talks about how as we go through the process of earning God’s trust with the smaller things, he will then open doors for the larger things. Here are some of the principles that are covered in this book:
• Above all else, God desires our obedience.
• When we obey God, He takes care of the bottom line.
• Stop praying only for others. Start praying with them.
• When God opens a door, our job is to walk through it.
• Get Comfortable being uncomfortable for God.
• You can run but you can’t hide from God.
So far this book has been a great inspiration. I will let you know more as I progress through the chapters.
The service tonight at Embrace was off the chain. Pastor John R. preached an incredible message tonight. If you didn’t make it out tonight you missed an awesome service. From praise and worship to the word God delivered, the night was truly amazing. Pastor John has been preaching a series on transformers and finally tonight, the young adults were able to experience the teaching.
He spoke on how we have the power to transform. Here is a very brief run-down.
1. Getting Plugged in: How do we get plugged in? Prayer, The Word, Resisting Temptation, Being Obedient.
2. Understanding the Power: God has given us access to the same power He used to raise Jesus. (Ephesians 1:19-20): and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms. The enemy is after us because he know that we have the ability to destroy him.
3. Flipping the Switch: We have to follow God’s will for us. Some of us have been Christians for a long time and we stay in our word, we pray, we have an understanding of the power but we remain closed.
I pray that God will allow us all to realize our value in Christ. Through Christ, we have the power to make a difference. Let’s put it into action!
Thanks Pastor John!
You all will be miss next week. Indianapolis is a great city and I am not just saying that because I was born and raised there. Ha Ha Ha! Anyway, you guys will have a blast and will be the bomb in the competition.
What an incredible day so far! Today the Shine Team and many other volunteers gathered together in the Calvary Gymnaisum. We were celebrating the Back to School Bash! Hundreds of kids were bused in from different neighborhoods. As they made their entrance into the gym, they were welcomed with cheers, screams, and excitement from the Shine Team and Leaders. This particular Outreach event gives kids the opportunity to come to know God if they don’t already have a relationship with Him. The event is full of Praise and Worship, Games, Dancing and just lots of fun with jesus. At the end of the service the kids are equipped with backpacks and supplies and most importantly, Jesus Christ. What an awesome way to start off the school year. This event gets Larger and Larger every year. God is so awesome!
Shout out to Pastor Jennifer and everyone who was involved!
Has Anyone Tried This Yet?
Wrigley has introduced a new sugar-free stick gum that is amazing! It is called “5”. Currently there are three flavors that come in this awesome unique black envelope packaging. The flavors include Rain (spearmint flavor), Cobalt (peppermint flavor) and Flare (cinnamon flavor). So far I have tried the Rain and Cobalt and Cobalt is my favorite at the moment. The gum has an incredible long lasting flavor. Usually I spit gum out after about an hour of chewing but not with the new “5”. Its about a $buck forty five and you can get it pretty much anywhere.
Try it out!
