Joy in Our Sacrifice…

The mere idea that you must sacrifice one thing to gain something else makes people skeptical and wary. Some might even worry that what they’re trading is not going to provide the same value as what they’re giving up. However, if we are true to who we desire to be, than every time we sacrifice, there should be joy attached to it because of what or who you are sacrificing for.

I Love My Wrinkles…

There I was, at the gym, getting ready to do another set of exercises when I noticed a glaring addition to my face. I laughed whispering the words to myself, “I love my wrinkles.” “Why would anyone in the world love their wrinkles?” You might ask.It’s because they hold so many things within them that are part of our journey. Let’s not merely see a sign of aging, but rather a road map to living a life which has been filled with so much to cherish.

Joy is Hard Work…

We are only one month into the “Year of Joy” and I have to say, it’s hard work! The first thing I am been reminded daily of is that joy is a choice; you cannot find it unless you choose to let it become part of you. Before you dismiss me simply as a positive thinker who is supposed to be inspirational by trade, I want to make a confession…

A Year of Joy…

For the first time ever, our ministry has chosen a theme to offer a year long series around one central message. This year will focus on reclaiming our “JOY.” On the 15th of each month, starting in January, a different article written by Greg will be posted on the site and emailed to our subscribers.

Surrender…

God is asking for more than just the peaks and valleys of your emotions. He wants you to surrender in moments which do not consist of one extreme or another; to be part of the entire life journey you are on. If we do not allow God to be seen in our everyday lives, then we run a great risk of losing our faith when we cannot find God in the moment of crisis.

Full Circle ~ “Let Me Be” (Part II)

Our creator always takes His unconditional love into account for the timing and best answers related to the ways we allow Him into our life through action or prayer…I have learned in my journey at this time that “Let me be…” is really a two part statement which is mirrored from God to me, and also from me to God in return.

Besties…

The word “best” is not just an identifier, it is an overall expectation. In the twentieth week of Ordinary Time we hear some really challenging scripture defining the type of faith we are called to have and what God is looking for in, what I consider, His “best disciples.”

Severed Grace…

When we desire growth and understanding of where we are in our faith life, we have to step back and identify the things which could be stalling us from reaching the next level or even maintaining where we are currently; ”severed grace” could be the issue. How can you make sure you’re open to receiving God’s grace?

Abandoned…

How many times in our life do we feel that God has stepped away from our side? How often do we feel that God doesn’t hear us when our prayers go unanswered? Regardless of whatever way we word the questions, there are times we feel very alone and wonder if God has left us to handle things by ourselves; the answer is, He NEVER does.

Being Superman…

When most of us talk about being “Superman” (or “Superwoman”) in our days, it is mostly about completing an immense amount of tasks or doing the seemingly impossible item off our to-do list. In these moments, we may see ourselves as a superhero, but what happens when we aren’t able to fulfill every “world saving” aspect in our day?
