🌿YES... I know, but sometimes I forget. Anyone else? I’m guilty of sometimes trying to figure it all out myself and THEN GO TO HIM. .
So... I read this often
. “Hold this truth tightly in the core of your belief system - it’s God who’s commissioned us to be desciples, not detectives. To be a student and not a spotter. To seek the healer, not the healing. To desire the Savior not the saving. The world undoubtedly calls us into the tiresome work of detective, while the light burden of Jesus calls us into the joy of discipleship.”
~ Falling North. It’s in the Heartache we find the joy. .

God, I fall down to my knees
With a hammer in my hand
You look at me, arms open
Child there is freedom from all of it
Say goodbye to every sin
You are forgiven - David Crowder

Some of you are sitting on multi-million dollar ideas! But because it doesn’t fit into society’s little box, because it’s uncommon for the demographic you belong to, because everybody and their momma isn’t doing it, you put it aside and out of your sight. Until one day, you have a first class seat looking on in horror, as you observe someone else doing the very thing that you felt was too uncommon and therefore impossible to do.
Family, understand this, it is always difficult to swim against the current. It takes bravery to stand up and be different. It takes courage to step out of the “cookie cutter”, pre-constructed lanes and run within your own God ordained lanes. It takes courage!
But know this, you’ll be much more satisfied doing what it is you were born to do, then walking and living in someone else’s shoes!
So be bold, be different, be who it is God has called you to be! If you’re having a hard time understanding this process, your process, seek the One that can give you clarity #Jesus.
In closing, that dream, the visions, the ideas, it is time to bring them forth!!! God is with you and He has given you everything you need to accomplish the very real assignment He’s entrusted to you.
Be blessed family 😘❤️
These are the people that have encouraged me through my journey and ultimately brought me into the kingdom of God. I’m so fortunate to have so many great people surround me. A big thank you to @tyler.k.sears and @african_icon93 I wouldn’t be here without you guys. Thanks for helping me in my journey in becoming apart of this spiritual family and thank you to all the others for accepting me. Truly love you all.
Let Go Of Your Idols
After Gideon had presented an offering to God, the next command God gave him was to destroy the altar his father built to Baal and build an altar to God at the same place. This shows that for us to be Chosen, we need to let go of our idols, dethrone them and give God the place they once occupied. This is a private victory we need to experience before our calling can become public. God must be Lord of our private life before He can use us publicly.
Many people who have received great callings from God have not been able to fulfil their purpose because they had not dealt with the idols in their private lives. An example of this is Saul – the first king of Israel. He did not allow God to deal with his self-consciousness and need to be accepted by others. As a result, the idols in his heart led to him being rejected by God and the end of his reign.
God will not use you if you do not let go of your idols. But letting go of your idols will always lead to a backlash from those around you. Some will feel threatened and judged by the decision you have made and will seek to persecute you. Nevertheless, you must make up your mind to stay the course and trust God to deal with the consequences of your obedience to Him – just as Gideon did.
“But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.”
Psalm 19:12-13 NIV
Just as important as what proceeds from our mouths is what is formed within our hearts. The hidden and silent words that only the Lord knows exist.
May the words of our hearts be just as pleasing as the words from our mouth.

Some people have a disproportionate amount of influence in your life. Maybe you asked them for it, maybe you didn’t. In my life God uses people who love and trust HIM to help shape who I am becoming. .
This is one of those men. He allowed me to marry his daughter (which wasn’t easy to convince him of) he encouraged me to go to college, taught me about what it looks like to be a leader and pastor and a person who prioritizes people over production. .
His desire and ability to connect with and love every single person that is in front of him is contagious and inspiring. I pray that everyone has someone like this in their life.
There’s a simple rule of life that will take you far... “never be the smartest person in the room” be the youngest, be the most unexperienced, be a learner for the rest of your life. .
Phil often says...“Find where Jesus is working and join him in it”....I encourage you to look where Jesus is working in your life and then humbly join him in it.
Phil, I am honored and privileged to partner with you in ministry and in life. .
Thats all for now...
