Seize the Day, Every Day

Have you ever had one of those days when you were busy all day long but when you got to the end of it, you found you hadn't accomplished anything that you wanted or needed to do? It's so frustrating when this happens. And I know what this feels like.

You Can Say No to Strife

We've all experienced the effects of strife in one way or another. Strife can manifest itself through arguing, screaming and yelling. Other times, it can be more subtle, like when someone gives you "the silent treatment" and refuses to talk at all.

Don't Be Offended by Trouble

Do you ever get offended when something bad happens in your life? I know I have. It's an attitude that says, "Why is this happening?" or "This shouldn't be happening to me!"

The Benefits of a Humble Heart

In Matthew 12:33, Jesus says, "A tree is recognized by its fruit" (NIV). The point He is making here is that you and I are known by the fruit in our lives. And if we develop the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), God will be honored and others will be drawn to Him through us.

Finding Your Self-Worth Where It Matters Most

Every person on earth needs to know they matter … that they mean something to someone and that they are valuable. The problem is when people don't get a good start in life, they often waste their lives searching for self-worth in all the wrong places.

God's Strategy to Overcome Anger

Anger is a common problem and we all have opportunities to get angry. Sometimes people get hurt and instead of dealing with their anger, they hang on to it and become bitter, hard-hearted, and miserable.

Anger Management 101

When we attended the 10-year anniversary celebration of Mercy Multiplied in the St. Louis, Missouri area, one of the young ladies who graduated from the program shared an eye-opening testimony.

Do You Have Enough Power in Your Life?

There's nothing more valuable than the presence of God in our lives. And my goal for teaching about God's presence and anointing is to increase your desire to completely and promptly obey God. Because the more we love, trust and obey God, the stronger His anointing will be in our lives.

The Healing Power of the Holy Spirit

It's wonderful to know that, as believers in Christ, we can live in close fellowship with God. Jesus said in John 16:7 (AMP), "I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor — Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you]."

The Benefits of Being Right With God

Isaiah 54:17 gives us an amazing promise from God. It says, "No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong.

What You Must Do to Be Right With God

I've discovered that nothing in life is right — nothing feels right, nothing works right — until you know you are right with God. When you really know God loves you and accepts you, then you can overcome sin, the rejection and judgment of others and any other opposition that comes against you in this life.

Living a Life of No Compromise

It's an honor for us to be chosen by God to be alive at this time on the earth. God has a great purpose for each of us, but if we're going to fulfill His plans and the "assignments" He's created us to accomplish, we have to make up our mind how we're going to live every day.

Find True Stability by Trusting God

Have you ever put your trust in someone who ended up disappointing you or hurting you? Maybe you put your trust in your money and then something happened and suddenly you didn't have it any more. Have you ever wasted years of your life trusting yourself?

God's Way of Stress Management 101

It seems that stress is the disease of the century. Products and programs to manage stress are a multi-billion-dollar business, whether the "cure" is medicine, counseling, books, seminars or classes. But I've discovered that God's way of managing stress is the most effective way to live.

I Want to Be a Happy Person, But How...

One of the greatest lessons I've learned is that you can't be both selfish and happy. I know this is true through my own personal experience, but more importantly, the Bible has some things to say about the attitude we should have about "self."

How to Use Your Time Wisely

God wants us to continually make good choices for our lives. So He's given us the Bible — His Word — as an instruction book to live by. The thing is, once we know what it says, we're responsible to do what it says. Because there's never a time when it's all right to do the wrong thing.
