Hebrews 11:1-Faith means being sure of things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it. (NCV)


Today let us focus on the possibilities and not the problem. Sometimes we are so busy concentrating on our problems that we forget who the problem solver is. That is where our faith comes in, we must know beyond the shadow of a doubt that our God will deliver. Each and every one of us are in a strenuous season and God is using this season to build our faith in Him. Adversity can be discouraging, but God uses it as a tool to advance our spiritual growth. Having negative thoughts can paralyze our faith, so don't look at the obstacle look at the opportunities. Whatever situation you are in today, you must speak life over it and see yourself out of it.

Faith treats things hoped for as reality! Faith moves God!
PRAYER: Dear God Almighty, we thank You for another day to open our eyes and see this day, forgive us of our sins. Lord build our faith so that it is unbreakable, shield our families with protection. Lord we love and praise Your Holy name in Jesus name. Amen.

Genesis 39: 20-21-Then Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the King's prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison. But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. (NKJ)


There are often times when we think that things are getting better but they actually get worse. The life of Joseph is such a powerful story, because he had a dream that he would one day be ruler over many. Well you see, Joseph went from the pit to the palace to prison. But eventually after he had gone through test and trials he was ruler over Egypt, just as he had dreamed. We have to remember what God has revealed to us in the light still exist in the dark. The Bible tells us that God was with Joseph while he was in the pit, palace, and in the prison. Since God is never changing, that same God is with us in our "Pit Experience." God is molding and making virtuous men and women at this very hour, so right now your purpose for being in the pit has PROMISE. So when the going gets tough, the tough trust God. Just when you think everything is against you, that is when it is working for your good.


Pray for the victims who have lost family members to the fires in California, as well as the Astronauts that are in space. Continue to pray for our children and our school systems.

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 127:3
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. (NLT)
Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. (NKJ)

MEDITATION: Building a child's character starts at home. People that interact with your child daily also contribute to your child's character building. It is very important to monitor who pours into your child's life. Deciding what daycare or school your child attends is as equally important as who interacts and pours into the child's life. The saying "It takes a village to raise a child" is so true. That village may include, teachers, babysitters, God-parents, and sometimes neighbors. But the village must have Godly love and have a genuine love for children. God has graciously given us our children as gifts. The gift of a child should be cherished and appreciated. As parents it is our responsibility to nurture, teach, direct, discipline, and protect our gift. Often times we have to make sacrifices to make sure our children are well taken care of. It may be given up a career, relationship, personal goals or even hobbies. Spending quality time with our children are important as well. Anytime spent with the child can be considered "quality time," because it is giving them your full attention. Your child's greatest need is the security of knowing that you care. Give your child something that money cannot buy and that is your time. You will be building a lifelong relationship each minute you spend with your child.


1.Teach by your words, make sure they are kind, not harsh.

2.Teach by your actions, make sure they are wholesome and honest.

3.Watch your temperament, make sure it is controlled.

4.Pray for and with your children.

5.Teach them responsibility, and the importance of being honest.

6.Hug and kiss them often.

7.Most important spend quality time with them.

Today let us pray for our children. Let us also thank God for our children. Pray for individuals who have lost children and for those who desire to have children. Pray for teachers who interact with our children daily. For those who are looking for a daycare or school, Covenant Classical on Old Madison Pike is an excellent school.

Matthew 18:21-22 (New Century Version)

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, when my fellow believer sins against me, how many times must I forgive him? Should I forgive him as many as seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, you must forgive him more than seven times. You must forgive him even if he wrongs you seventy times seven.


FORGIVE-To pardon; to remit; to overlook.

When pride is present and all we can think of is SELF and they were wrong and not me. We can never forgive. When we are puffed up and holding on to how bad that person hurt us. We can never forgive. When we are plotting and thinking evil thoughts about that person. We can never forgive. Regardless of who was right or wrong, and how many times you have been mistreated, we are obligated to forgive. We have offended God limitlessly and His Grace and Mercy sustains us everytime. We want release from our hurt and bondage, but when someone offends us, we take days, months or even years before we forgive. If we are to be like Him, we should learn to forgive like Him.


Today let us be thankful for friends and family and to appreciate one another. The world we live in today is cruel genuine people are far and few, so let us learn to love and respect the people that are present in our lives. Pray for our teachers it is a tough job dealing with our kids. Show an act of kindness and let them know you appreciate them. Remember what you do for others God will make happen for you. Have a blessed week!

Isaiah 53:7-He was beaten down and punished, but He didn't say a word. He was like a lamb being led to be killed. He was quiet, as a sheep is quiet while its wool is being cut; He never opened His mouth.


The words, "What would Jesus do", are powerful. There are many times in our lives when our coworkers, family/friends crucify us with words or even say things about us that are not true. It is times like these when we should say to ourselves, "What would Jesus do." The flesh will tell you get even, say something back, you can't let them get away with that. Jesus was beaten, humiliated, laughed at talked about and was hung and nailed to the cross. With a humble heart he NEVER uttered a word back, in fact He prayed to the Father, "Lord forgive them for they know not what they do." When we are persecuted, humiliated, and talked about we must learn to remain silent and have a humble heart and pray for those who spitefully abuse and misuse us.


I would like to thank everyone for the support and encouraging words, while I was going through my temporary storm. When going through it is uncomfortable, but it is called a process and without the process we cannot get to the promise. God is still on the throne and He has a plan. Pray for people who wrong you without cause, continue to pray for local schools, marriages, and our local churches and parents raising children. GOD IS LOVE!
