I don’t remember a time when God has not been faithful. God is faithful. Take every opportunity to give a shout out to God. His timing is perfect. God makes a way.
He will supply all of our need. Not needs with an “S” (plural). As it arises, it will be provided.
God provides gas money for the car and food. He provides for our need. Sometimes when I think I need something, God shows me I don’t need this right now. If I don’t need whatever that thing I asked for is, I must not need it, but He will provide contentment.
Zach Williams says Fear is a Liar. Fear is a tool that the devil uses to keep us in our past, to keep us from seeing the promises God has for our future.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.1 John 4:18
Cry out to God because He is perfect love. Remind Satan that he is a liar.
God doesn’t want us to be fearful. Go to God in full confidence that He’s got the situation you are going through.
Please pray for Art. He’s trying to be Intentional in raising his grand kids but he’s having a tough time making ends meet. Focusing on God is one way to be Intentional because it helps us focus on the solution instead of our circumstances. God is bigger than our storm. Reach out to Him.
Come near to God and he will come near to you. James 4:8
Dr. Randy has help for those who want to go from surviving to thriving.
Those who focus on survival tend to:
- Be overly concerned with how their lives appear to others.
- Hold tightly to everything in their lives (people, objects, jobs, status).
- Find their identity and security in possessions.
The move from survival to significance:
- Manage risks as you contemplate change.
- Identify a passion to pursue.
- Don’t be ensnared by image or possessions.
If you’re living in survival mode in any area of your life, take a bold step toward significance. It might be uncomfortable at first, but true contentment is hard to find in mediocrity.

How we communicate has an effect on how we relate to each other. God created us each unique and sometimes that means pronouncing words differently from each other. Some common mispronounced words are Often, Nuclear and Realtor. Sometimes people say the word often and include the “T”. Often has a silent “T”. The silent “T” is in other words too for example: listen. Nuclear is pronounced like Nucleus except with an “R” at the end instead of an “S”. Realtor is said Reel tur.
