People watch our actions more than listening to our words. Would others know you by your fruit? Galatians 5:22-23::But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Peace & Grace
Nothing goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. (Pema Chodron) Much like the Israelites we all have at least one desert in our life. One relationship, habit or situation that we keep repeating over and over no matter how often we pray for help. Our help perhaps is a learning moment that we have yet to achieve. Release total control of the situation to God to show you the way and obey His leading. Peace & Grace
Your life is your garden, your thoughts are seeds. If your life isn't awesome, you've been watering the weeds! (Terry Prince) Our thoughts guide our attitude and our reactions to circumstances.

A great leader takes genuine joy in the success of those under him and should be the number one goal of any organization. Building others up is the most gratifying experience one can have. To nuture and watch talent grow far outweighs financial gains.

Everything you need to accomplish the dreams of your heart have already been placed in you by our creator. When we cease to use those talents and gifts for His puropse we are not walking in faith. Step out and let God take care of the rest. Peace & Grace
For everything you have missed, you have gained something else; and for everything you gain, you loose something else. Its about your outlook towards life. You either regret or rejoice. Every instance is a learning moment, something to be gained. Never regret the struggles of the past for those are the storms through which our God delivered you. Peace & Grace
“Because I am not yet living up to what Jesus expects me to be in those red letters in the Bible, I always define myself as somebody who is saved by God’s grace and is on his way to becoming a Christian. (…) Being saved is trusting in what Christ did for us, but being Christian is dependent on the way we respond to what he did for us.” --Tony Campolo
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3:12-14 NIV)
The next time you are struggling to find peace, I want you to pray this prayer: "Dear Lord, Thank You for reminding me that You are always with me, that You see me and that You hear my prayers. Please help me to know deeper levels of peace today in light of your constant presence. In Jesus’ name, Amen." (Via Crosswalk.com) Peace & Grace

(Philippians 1:9-11 NIV) Peace & Grace

God's greatest moments come from our weakness.
From a study on prayer, Acts 4:29-30: "Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus" Peace & Grace
Are you a leader? Don't overlook those on your team who don't stand out, every person carries a seed of success. God chose those who seemed unlikely to carry out the biggest parts of His plan. Peace & Grace
Wars, rumors of wars, disease, lack of community, financial unrest. There are a lot of things happening that are "end time" indicators. The best indicator is the inner voice from God. Only God knows when the time is right for His return. Don't get hung up on the happenings of the day. Keep focus on the One who holds the keys. Peace & Grace
