What Are You Waiting For???


 “I will surely bless you,

and I will surely multiply your offspring

as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore.

And your offspring shall possess the gate of his enemies,

and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed,

because you have obeyed My Voice.”

Genesis 22:17-18

Make a difference!!

Change the world…

Don’t wait!

Start right now!!

Let your voice…

Be the one voice!

Shout it out!

Give a little more…

What are you waiting for???

Don’t feel helpless…

Do your part…

Anything’s possible…

God can make good things happen…

Just believe!

Take that step…

Time is ticking…

Don’t wait until God gives YOUR assignment away…

To someone who will obey!

Do it!

“I find the doing of the will of God

leaves me no time for disputing

about His plans.”

George Macdonald-

“Not with eye service,

as men pleasers;

but as the servants of Christ,

doing the will of God from the heart;”

Ephesians 6:6

“Look, today I have set before you life and death,

depending on whether you obey or disobey.

I have commanded you today to love the Lord your God

and to follow His paths and to keep His laws,

so that you will live and become a great nation,

and so that the Lord your God will bless you

and the land you are about to possess.”

Deuteronomy 30:15-16

I’m praying for you!!

Step Out Of Your Own Little World!!


Step Out In Faith!!

Out of your comfort zone…

To the next level…

To the place…

Where you don’t know what you’re doing…

But, you do know God’s holding your hand!

God wants us to see the BIG picture!

It’s easy to ignore…

When it’s population ME!

 There’s a greater purpose…

You could be living right now…

Outside your own little world!

God, what have we been doing?

Father, start breaking my heart…

For what breaks Yours!

Give me open hands…

And open doors…

Put Your light in my eyes…

And let me see…

That my own little world…

Is not about ME!!!

“And then He told them,

‘Go into all the world

and preach the Good News to everyone.'”

Mark 16:15

God’s opening up doors for me to go to the next level…

It’s hard…

But, exciting at the same time…

I don’t feel wise enough…

 Or strong enough…

But it’s not about ME…

Is it?!?!

Branch Out!!


“He that trusteth in his riches shall fall:

but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.”

Proverb 11:28

Stay Attached To The True Vine!

Bear Fruit!

Accept Pruning…

Be Even More Fruitful!


Be His Friend!


4-21-13 Walk 018

John 15

The Vine and the Branches

4-20-13 Walk 004

 “I Am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener.

4-20-13 Walk 017

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,

while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes

so that it will be even more fruitful.

4-20-13 Walk 048

You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

4-20-13 Walk 050

 Remain in Me, as I also remain in you.

No branch can bear fruit by itself;

it must remain in the vine.

Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me.

4-14-13 Walk 054

I Am the vine;

you are the branches.

If you remain in Me and I in you,

you will bear much fruit;

apart from Me you can do nothing.

4-14-13 Walk 056

 If you do not remain in me,

you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers;

such branches are picked up,

thrown into the fire and burned.

4-13-13 Walk 015

If you remain in Me and My words remain in you,

ask whatever you wish,

and it will be done for you.

4-7-13 Walk 026

This is to my Father’s Glory,

that you bear much fruit,

showing yourselves to be my disciples.

4-7-13 Walk 035

As the Father has loved Me,

so have I loved you.

Now remain in My love.

3-2-13 Walk 017

If you keep my commands,

you will remain in My love,

just as I have kept my Father’s commands

and remain in His love.

2-25-13 walk 014

I have told you this so that My joy

may be in you

and that your joy may be complete.

4-21-13 Walk 027

My command is this:

Love each other

as I have loved you.

4-21-13 Walk 113

Greater love has no one than this:

to lay down one’s life for one’s friends

4-21-13 Walk 112

You are My friends

if you do what I command

4-20-13 Walk 042

I no longer call you servants,

because a servant does not know his master’s business.

Instead, I have called you friends,

for everything that I learned from My Father

I have made known to you. 

4-20-13 Walk 052

You did not choose Me,

but I chose you and appointed you

so that you might go and bear fruit—

fruit that will last—

and so that whatever you ask in My Name the Father will give you.

4-20-13 Walk 001

This is my command:

Love each other.”

You’re Branches!!!

Remain attached to The Vine!



Branch Out!

Bear Fruit!


He Wills It!
