God Can Call You Out

Poor. Lost. Hopeless. Abandoned. God notices even the people who feel they can be called one of the above. One day Jesus was passing through Jericho and there was a chief tax-collector by the name of Zacchaeus who wanted to see who He was. (Luke 19: 1-10 NIV) Zacchaeus was a wealthy man yet he was lacking in his physical appearance. He was very short. Because of this, Zacchaeus was not able to see Jesus through the crowd of people who had gathered to see Him. To increase his chances of being able to see, Zacchaeus ran ahead and climbed a sycamore fig tree. ...more

Raise Your Kids Right: What to Say Instead of Praising

"What kids do need is unconditional support, love with no strings attached. That’s not just different from praise –- it’s the opposite of praise. "Good job!" is conditional. It means we’re offering attention and acknowledgment and approval for jumping through our hoops, for doing things that please us." -- Alfie Kohn ...more

Praise God for 40 days....Day 3

God manifests HIS power through Praise. Become a person of PRAISE, and you wil experience the release of the power of GOD. Ps 119:164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws. Think on that a minute. Could you Praise God 7 times a day. To really stop what you are doing and actually spend a few minutes Praising God?...more

Praise God for 40 days...Day 2

When we paraise God we are expressing our admiration to him. We are lifting him on exaltation. Praise is the act of boasting about the Lord. Praise is our way of Life, the very heartbeat of our relationship with God. Praise is offred for who God is. The Lor is worthy to be praised. God formed you so you could declare his praise.(Isa 43:21) From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lor is to be praised. God delights in the praises of his creation. (Psm 149:3-4) But as for me I will always have hope, I will always praise you more and more....more

Praise God for 40 days...Day 1

You God are the father of Abraham Issac, and Jacob, and Jesus and you are my GOD. You are great and greatly to be praised. Thy loving kindness is better than life. My name is written in the palm of your hand. Your love is never ending. Your forgiveness is as far as the east is to the west. Your hand is not short, you do not lie.  You make a way where there is no way. Your Word brought forth everything that exists. Your Word has healing in it. You want to Bless your people. Your Grace and Mercy are new every morning....more

Praise God for 40 days

 This is new to me, I certainly hope that everyone understands this before I get started. A few weeks back, the Lord impressed on me to start a notebook of Praise to him. First I had to differentiate Praise and Worship, to be sure I was Praising God. They are different. Praise is adoration, glorifiying, the act of boasting, to commend, to applaud, to magnify. So I began my notebook. I got my bible and went thru my books I have on Praise. I searched the internet and read up on Praise to God. This morning, I feel God has led me to start on Jan....more

Mary Barrett, Cancer Survivor and Worshiper

Our little fellowship was led into grand and inspirational worship Sunday, led by Mary Barrett of Calvary Chapel Merritt Island (FL).  It was also a delight to meet Mary personally, and see one who loves and worship her Lord even through intense trials.  Earlier this year she was diagnosed with carcino-sarcoma, a rare life-threatening cancer which led to extensive surgery and chemotherapy.  Her little trip to our gathering was right on the heels of her 4th (and last!) chemo treatment!  According to her nursing staff, she's officially a "cancer survivor."  But more than ...more
