A successful businessman was growing old and now it was time to choose a successor to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of his directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.
“It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO,” he said. “I have decided to choose one of you.”
The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a seed today – a very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

God doesn’t promise to eliminate chllenges; instead, he promises to give us strength to meet those challenges. If he gave us no rough roads to walk, no mountains to climb, and no battles to fight, We Would Not GROW.
He does not leave us alone with our challenges, however.
Instead He stands besides us, teaches us and STRENGTHENS us to face them…
Hello, world! It’s my birthday! I felt inspired by the post, 28 Things God Has Revealed to Me Before the Age of 28!, I saw on the blog, Pursue Me, to share with you the twenty-two things God has taught me. I’ve written about some of these things before, but some of them are new. Enjoy!
- He loves me. No matter what I do, I know His loving arms will be open to me. (How He Loves Us)
- God can use anything to get your attention, especially in your brokenness.

How much more do I have to take? That would depend on what God has planned for your life. So many times we make the mistake of thinking that everything that goes perfectly smooth, has to be God. Other times we think that just because things are not going right, it can’t possibly be God. The only way to know what is or what is not what God is to know him and to know his word. You must have a relationship with him.
- The first step is to repent and believe that Jesus died for your sins and accept his gift of salvation.
- Then you must start learning who he is by reading his word, The Holy Bible.
- You must develop a relationship with him through prayer. Speak to him and listen for his response.
- The more you start learning his word, the more you will start changing how…

Here’s the truth– so many times people wonder why they aren’t seeing breakthrough happen in their lives or circumstances. The question you need to ask yourself is are you walking in obedience with God? Have you yielded your heart to Him, trusting in Him, having faith no matter what things look like in the physical?
We need to learn to see things not with our worldly eyes but with our spiritual eyes. The fact is that we are in a battle–a war for our hearts that very place that either brings forth life or death (Proverbs 4:23). We cannot serve God and serve worldly things. God is looking for people who will rise up fearless, brave, and bold. People who will die to their selves daily, shed their selfish ways, repent, and turn away from old dead fruitless things, walking in freedom, truth, and love. You see walking is an…

Today let’s talk about struggling as a Christian.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep your faith when you are struggling with things. It’s easy to say “Why me” & get angry with Him when life isn’t easy.
It’s hard to remember that He gives us challenges & tribulations in life to help us face our future as strong followers in our faith with a servant heart.
I’ve noticed a lot of people struggling lately, with day to day challenges & with their faith. So here are a few of the verses I go to when I find myself asking “why me?”
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made…
