Keep doing good! It doesn’t matter what people say or don’t say about you. It doesn’t matter if they notice or don’t notice. Eventually your GOOD will be discovered! I’m POSITIVE! Here’s the WORD! “In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden forever.” (1 Timothy 5:25)...

You’ve got important work today. Make sure the people you allow into your life build you up and don’t bring DIVISION! Those who build you up help you reach God’s goals for your life. I’m POSITIVE! Here’s the Word: “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.” (Romans 16:17)...

When beginning a new endeavor, always, Start With The End In Mind.” Before you begin, ask yourself, “Am I willing to finish the task?” I’m POSITIVE! Here’s the WORD: “But the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Matt. 24:13)...

BE IN DEMAND, ON DEMAND! Are you a yes person or a no person? Are you more known for your “I Cans” or your “I Cants?” The person who is more known for their “Yess” and their “I Cans” is the one In Demand. I’M POSITIVE! Here’s the word: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)...

Moving forward means leaving something behind. Be ready to leave something behind this week so you can move toward what you need to elevate to the next level. Elevation is coming sooner than you think. I’M POSITIVE! Here’s the word: “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead!” St. Paul - Phil. 3:13b...

Don’t wait another minute to do what you said you’d do yesterday. Time is slipping into the future. Make it happen TODAY! I’m POSITIVE! Here’s the Word: For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor. 6:2)...

November is one of my favorite months. It’s not that I’m not thankful the rest of the year, but there is something about being surrounded by an attitude of thanksgiving that makes me want to shout my blessings from the roof. I love reading all of the daily posts of thankfulness on social media, and hearing from friends and relatives what they are especially thankful for that day. The attitude of thankfulness is contagious! One of the things I am most thankful for is that my dad and mom taught me about thankfulness and stewardship when I was a child. What does one have to do with the other? God blesses me and provides for me. For this I am eternally thankful. As part of that blessing and provision, He gives me resources that I am called to steward. Stewardship should be a central part of our lives. Each of us are called to steward our finances, our time, our families, and we are to be good stewards of our environment. That stewardship not only opens us up to more blessings from the Lord, it also opens our lives up so we can be conduits of blessing. When we are good stewards,...

Keep Your Courage! That’s right. Don’t back down in the middle of your storm. Storms come, but the man or woman of God who keeps their Courage will survive and THRIVE! I’m POSITIVE! Here’s the Word: “So Keep Your Courage, men, For I have faith in God that it will be happen just as he told me.” St. Paul, Acts 27:25...

Love is not just a theory. It’s not just something we feel, or something we say to other people. Love is action. 1 John 3:18 says, “let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 Corinthians 13 shows us the importance of love in our lives. “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal” (vs. 1). Your words may be full of wisdom, spoken righteously, and meant to bless others, but if you don’t speak with love they are nothing but noise. “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing” (vs. 2). Prophecy is a powerful gift from God. Faith, likewise, is one of the most powerful forces discussed in God’s Word. But even with both of those, without love “I am nothing.” “If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing” (vs 3). God calls us to give freely, but...

As much as your friends want you to explain God to them, they’ll fire you for hate speech if you’re caught trying to promote Jesus in any way. When they ask the hard questions be ready with a prompt and honest report. I’m POSITIVE!! Here’s the word: “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?” (Job 11:7). No, I sure don’t want to, but here’s what I’m ready for: “The Showdown!”...
