Does God Disappoint?
I think it’s safe to say that we have all had a time or two where we just plain missed it. We did it our way and then later came to know whatever it was, it was a wrong choice and may have even had some rough consequences.
But have you ever done something in complete surrender and submission to God, following His lead, yielding fully and then later feeling disappointed in what came next?
Why do we think being a Believer is going to fulfill our personal goals and
I love to decorate. Anything. I like decorating a home. I like textiles and clothes to drape on the body. I love personal training and bodybuilding as I see the human form as a great canvas built to perform amazing things. How marvelous it is to sculpt and shape and strengthen it. And I also love to wrap gifts and create a gorgeous bow on top. Presentation does matter. First impressions count enormously. It takes countless second impressions to erase a poor first impression. However, we cannot and should not
Last night I had the most hysterical conversation with my youngest child as he tries to decide what decade I was born. Once we had it all sorted out he was quite surprised and informed we that the Toy Story movies weren’t even made yet when I was born!
He is in the early middle childhood years and it’s so fun to talk with him. How he got a large vocabulary and mind he has blows me away. It’s fun to watch their cognition change and develop with age. The complexity
God bless America

The hopeful red, white and blue.
God bless America
I truly love you and all you represent—
Peace, Love and Unity for every man.
Common or not—we each are given equal opportunity for Life, Love and Liberty.
God bless America and her soil.
God bless America and every soldier who has been sent to foreign lands.
Guide her path, Father, guide her strong—
Better days ahead for her, her future bright and long.
God bless America and grant her
Flex your faith.
Stoke your Joy.
Share your smile and know you’re a custom original.
You’ve got style!
Take some time to celebrate all that is good. You’re the sculptor of your life!
Flexibility is key in just about anything. Make yourself like the willow tree and bend when necessary…
Be encouraged. God put His courage in you. He is the Essence of all things noble.
With Him, there’s nothing you can’t achieve! Watch and see what God can do!
I once knew a man named Charlie…
Seasons in life bring opportunities. Each opportunity is a window where God can expand our hope as he expands the foundation of our life creating something sound, something stable that we can build upon. Because we can dream all day long and become little more than a dreamer if we allow ourselves to stop there. Therefore, every encounter, every relationship, whether for a moment, a year, a decade a lifetime—has the power to shape and mold who we are destined to be.
Sometimes the best thing that can happen to you in life is to fail at something.
Have you ever attempted something only to fair at it rather than excel? For the champions purposed toward excellence mediocre is the same as a failure. Or is it?
Failure is what sets apart the champion from the talker or complainer. Failure has a way of chipping away at our mold and revealing clusters of pure gold. Often times the greater the failure the larger the bounce back. That’s if
God tends to have a preference for the Impossible. That’s where He does His best work. The impossible seems to be His specialty. In fact, Ge does His BEST work when the odds are stacked against us.
David met up with a giant. Moses opposed the leader of Egypt. Daniel prayed when He was told not to. Esther stepped into territory she wasn’t allowed. Ruth forsook her birthright for the Identity of God through Naomi. She stepped foot on the threshing floor and received for herself a Kinsman Redeemer named Boaz
“This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.” 1 John 1:5
God is nothing but Life, Light, Joy, Goodness, Grace, Love and all things Hopeful. He can do all things; the unimaginable and the unexplainable and seemingly impossible. He is the ultimate Possibility Thinker, Way Maker, Bondage Breaker and the Friend like no other friend, loyal to the core.
For three days He became darkness to absorb all of ours.
God is always trying to show us something…
“Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
He is always whispering like the wind through the palm leaf. He gently moves and brushes about the trees. He peeks through the heavens with brilliant sunshine and warms the ground we thrive upon. He longs to be a blessing. He delights to
