The strongest Grapes

Sometimes in life we face seasons filled with trials and difficulties, and we can't help but ask, "Why God, why when I have tried to be so faithful must I go through these difficult times?"

I have asked these questions, and it's been answered like this; we are the grapes, the body is the vineyard, and God is the owner. When making wine, a few weeks before harvest, they don't water the grapes, by the time harvest time comes, only the strongest, sweetest grapes survive, and those grapes make the best wine.

Just like Job, sometimes God is testing us, pushing us to be stronger, to be sweeter, so that we will make the best wine for him! So take heart! Feel blessed in your trials, you are about to be used for great things!

Step of Faith

All that it takes is one choice, one step, to change yours or someone else's life forever! Do not be afraid to make that choice, to take that step! For we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of sound mind! 

Father, this evening I just want to pray over each of your children, to give them courage at every door that you put in their lives. The courage to open and step through that door, knowing that it is a mystery what awaits them beyond that door! Teach us to trust in ourselves and your spirit in us! Amen.

Little by little

This morning I come to you saying that you will not be where you are forever! The spirit flows in you, and you will not grow stagnant! I know that it feels like life is at a standstill sometimes, but I promise, every step you take you are moving forward, little by little. Be faithful in your patience, for those who are faithful in little will be faithful in abundance! Take every little step as it comes, and before you know it you will have made it far from where you began!
