You will brim over...

PLAN to never lack one good thing--
"Trust God from the bottom
of your heart; don't try to figure out
everything on your own. Listen for God's
voice in everything you do, everywhere you
go; he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all. Run to
God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with
health, your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own; give him
the first and the best. Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over." Proverbs 3: 5-10

He Loves Us...

It's in those moments where we feel too dirty for grace that we need it the most. He wasn't lying when he said he loves us.

End of Day Blessing: May you-in spite of your mistakes & missteps-see how God's love & provision more than cover you. May you-in your weakness-experience abounding grace that makes you divinely strong. Where you've experienced loss and brokenness, may you know healing, wholeness, and redemption. Your Redeemer is for you and He is strong. Sleep well tonight.

To End Your Day...

A thought to end your night.....
God. I pray you invade each home reading this.. I pray that heaven would come to earth. That heaven would invade earth, right where each reader is this night. That angels would come, dreams would flow, heaven would be free to invade and that you'd SHIFT THINGS God for each person reading. TONIGHT... not tomorrow.... tonight God I pray that heaven would COME.. that ...heaven would INVADE..and that earth would not be the same, where these people dwell. Come God, come. Thanks for Who You are. The Trusted One. The Truest One. The One who gives security. The One who stabilizes. The One who brings ABRUPT change in a moment and changes a destiny. The One who holds it all. Come, God, Come.

"The best legacy a parent can leave is self acceptance. Teach your sons that size and speed may matter, but depth matters even more. Remind them that they are accepted just as they are. Teach your daughters that diversity is beautiful and beauty is diverse and that they are beautiful and completely accepted just as they are."

Grace and Love...

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Anyway by Martina McBride

You can spend your whole life buildin'
Somethin' from nothin'
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway
You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
love 'em anyway


You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah, sing it anyway
I sing, I dream, I love

Psalm 25

Why I love Beth Moore:

Psalm 25[a]

Of David.

1 In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.

2 I trust in you;
do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one who hopes in you
will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
who are treacherous without cause.

4 Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
5 Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, Lord, are good.

8 Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, Lord,
forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.[b]
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
for only he will release my feet from the snare.

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
and how fiercely they hate me!

20 Guard my life and rescue me;
do not let me be put to shame,
for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
because my hope, Lord,[c] is in you.

22 Deliver Israel, O God,
from all their troubles!

Song of the Day

"God's Been Good To Me"

Well I can't believe I'm sittin' here today
Picking on my banjo with a big smile on my face
Writin' new words to an old school melody
Hey there ain't no doubt that God's been good to me

Oh the sun is shinin' on down in Tennessee
And right now where I'm right where I wanna be
I've never felt so loved, so peaceful and so free
Hey there ain't no doubt that God's been good to me

'Cause he put me smack dab in the middle of Paradise
In the heart of the city where my dreams have come alive
And everything I have, and everything I see
Is just another reminder that God's been good to me

This golden road's been long
And sometimes I've lost my way
I've been down some darkened detours
Leanin' heavy on my faith
But where the devil had me chained
Lord your love done set me free
Hallelujah! God's been good to me

~Tim and Kathy Keller
"Marriage is glorious but hard. It's a burning joy and strength, and yet is is also blood, sweat, and tears, humbling defeats and exhausting victories."

Team Strough

Love Love Love this man....
it's been a journey of fighting for our marriage with alot of storms and bumps in the road....but we know without a doubt this:
1- God never lets a storm go by without sending a rainbow.
2-Keeping our eyes forward to the amazing view out the front windshield is always ALWAYS better than looking in the review mirror.
3- Iron sharpens iron...
4- We don't always agree but that's ok...as long as we respect and love each other in the process of working thru whatever it is.
5- If we want to fly we have to let go of the crapola that weighs and pulls us down.
6- We are stronger because of our battles.
7- There is beauty in the pain....if we choose to see it.
8-  We will leave a legacy for our amazing kids no matter what comes our way. We will not back down.
9- We choose HOPE in a world where many do not.
10- Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference!
11- "The race is not always to the swift...but to those who keep running. "
12- Quitting is not an option if you want to be a winner.
13-  Love and commitment is choosing to do the thing you said you would do long after the mood you said it in has passed.
14-  Relationships take work...so be willing to work :)
15-  Romans 5:20.....Where sin abounds....GRACE abounds much more.

Dreamin Big...

If you Think It...Ink It....Go dream with God :)
And map out your families goal's for financial freedom and quality family time. Mission trips...adopting(?!?!?!?).....Hawaii....what is on your dream board?
