The Power of Praise

kristie Bible, Faith, Worship

I am writing this blog today during a time that will be recorded in history not just as a localized crisis, but a world crisis.  There will be stories shared about tragedies and the heroes who stepped up in our time of need. There will be accounts of people who despite a decrease in resources continued to give and people …

The God Who Answers By Fire

chad Faith, Revival

We sit at the beginning of a new year, a new decade.  Where do you want to go?  Are you planning on making resolutions that you may or may not keep?  Will 2020 be just another year?  Will you be content with the status quo?  I challenge you to let this be the year that you choose to go after …

God’s Word in me

chad Bible, Hearing God, In Christ

There are so many treasures hidden in the Word of God  placed there by a loving Father for us to find. Proverbs 25:2 says  “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (NIV)  I believe that God is calling us to a deeper place in His Word. Let’s …

How to silence the accuser

kristie Culture, Faith, Redemption

Have you ever had a night where sleep eludes you as you toss and turn worrying about past mistakes?  I know I have. It seems like as soon as I let one of those memories of past failures, or even perceived failures, into my mind a flood gate opens, and all of a sudden every mistake I have ever  made …

Jesus heals the leper

kristie Discipleship, Love

Many of my favorite passages in the Bible are accounts of people being healed and scriptures on healing.  Maybe this is because I am a physician, or maybe I became a physician because I was so compelled by stories of healing.  I love hearing testimonies of miraculous healings, and even more so, seeing them personally. Why? Is it seeing the …

In Pursuit

chad Love, Revival

Why should I pursue Him?  I know that Christ died for me and one day I will go to heaven.  Why spend time in pursuit of Him when I know that I already have the promise of heaven?   I pursue Him because He has called me and given me a divine purpose. I pursue Him because there is more.  I …

No Fear

chad Faith, Love

Fear and anxiety have a way of controlling many areas of our lives.  It is time we choose to live in love rather than fear. Fear is not meant to have any place in our lives.  You were created to live without fear. Fear didn’t exist until sin entered mankind.  In the garden Adam and Eve walked freely with no …

God Unfiltered

kristie Culture, Revival, Worship

What would it look like? God unfiltered. Not filtered by our programs. Not filtered by time constraints. Not filtered by our comfort zone. Not filtered by concerns that a move of the Spirit might offend someone. Not filtered by lies we have believed about ourselves. Not filtered by misconceptions about who we think God is. Not filtered by fear of …

Encounter

chad Culture, Revival, The Altar

An encounter at the altar can change your life and the life of a nation in a moment. An altar is not just a physical place. It is a place of sacrifice and worship. It is meant to draw us closer to God. We like to make religious monuments to things that were meant to be transforming and life giving.   We …

God we want more of YOU!

chad Revival, The Altar

It is time we became more hungry for a move of God!!! Are you hungry for a move of God in your city?   What does that even look like? It doesn’t matter what your city is like, it needs a move of God.  We can’t be content with just clean streets and good schools. We need a move of God. …
