I'm praying for you today...

“I pray that the God of HOPE would FILL YOU with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

Every painful experience I have had in my life has brought me closer to God’s love and goodness for me.

A powerful story of One Woman's path to transformation

Pamela

In April and May of this year I took a trip of a lifetime to Africa. In more ways than one I learned way more about myself than I thought possible. It's inevitable when you open your heart and life up to others - you become the one who is blessed.

The collective people of Africa have...

 Our comparisons are missing the chosen mark of becoming like God. The failures, the missteps, the unbelief, the fear… these bring condemnation. The gift of God’s grace, ah… now that’s different. It reveals what is already there. It’s much more than we deserve. It’s much more than we expect. It’s much more than we believe. It’s much more than we appropriate. God’s much more releases fulfillment, abundant provision, grace, righteousness, glory and the ability to reign in this life.
