And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop.

But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings. (Mark11: 25-26 AMP)

Sometimes our loved ones die suddenly and we don’t get a second chance to tell them that we love them.  God gave me that second chance and I am so grateful! I believe a process of healing began in 2001 when I asked the Lord to shine His light on the dark areas in my heart and made the choice to forgive him.  We invite you to CLICK ON ministry podcast under links and listen to the rest of this Father’s Day message!  We welcome your comments!  God loves you and so do we!

Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distress, for Christ’s sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong. NKJ

What!  The Apostle Paul was not only boasting of his infirmities but taking pleasure in them too?  And what about being persecuted for his faith? How could he be bound up with chains physically and not be in chains emotionally and spiritually with anger and bitterness?

Isaiah 6:8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send and who will go for Us?” Then said I, “Here am I!  Send me!”

I had announced in the beginning of 2015 of this great opportunity to speak on the radio.  What a blessing it is to minister to God’s children!  I have been speaking for a year and a half on WMRF FM 95.7 radio on Sunday morning at 9:30 and WIEZ 670 AM at 7:45. I’d like to encourage you to listen to God’s Pep Talk on our podcast ….click on ministry podcast!  Every week I will post a scripture from the message that will be placed on our podcast!  Afterwards, you will be able to click on the podcast and listen to the message.

What is God calling you to do?  Are you saying, “Lord, here am I….send me?  God loves you and so do we!

Hello dear friends,
Just wanted to let you know what is coming up in 2015!

I have been given another opportunity for God to use me as His vessel! I will be teaching on Merf station (95.7) from Mifflin County beginning on January 4th. It will be called “God’s Pep Talk” and will air every Sunday morning at 9:30-9:45. If you are out of the area that Merf reaches out too, I believe it airs live on the internet! I invite you to cheer for Jesus with many others this year!

I would appreciate your prayers for God to touch their heart and bring encouragement to those that have been wounded in the church, think church is full of a bunch of hypocrites and those that are struggling with so many addictions! Pray also for God to anoint the messages, provide the finances,equip me with all of the technology involved, touch the hearts of those who don’t have a relationship with the Lord and bring them to churches that will teach them how to be renewed in their mind and changed in their hearts!

Thanks so much for all of your prayers!  God loves you and so do we!

Do you ever have the thought that no one likes or cares about you?  I woke up with that thought this morning. Even though I knew it was a lie from satan, I couldn’t seem to shake those words off me.  In my heart I knew that I have many people who do love and care about me but in my mind I wasn’t convinced.  I kept asking God how to combat the enemy’s lies with God’s truth.  I knew that God doesn’t promise that everyone will love us and many will reject us.  After all, many people rejected Jesus.  So… how can I stop these thoughts?  I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Thank me for all the friends from your past and those that are in your life now!  I began to give thanks and name all my brothers and sisters in the Lord from the past and present whether they rejected me or not. I began to feel my spirit rising up over my flesh. Praise God! Now I could go to church and worship and praise our Father with my brothers and sisters in the Lord!

Philippians 1:3-5Amplified Bible (AMP)

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you.  In every prayer of mine I always make my entreaty and petition for you all with joy (delight).  I thank my God] for your fellowship (your sympathetic cooperation and contributions and partnership) in advancing the good news (the Gospel) from the first day (you heard it) until now.

Thank you all for blessing my life!  God loves you and so do I!

Dear Friends,

As we are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, I was thinking about many of you that are going through some really hard times.  Maybe you have lost a loved one this year through death or divorce.  Or maybe you’ve lost a job and don’t have any idea how you will be able to pay your bills.  Maybe you are having major setbacks in your health and continue to have chronic pain.  How will you give thanks this season?  I have been through a lot of hard times and still have some.  However, I know the only way through this is having an intimate personal relationship with the Lord!  When you are deeply rooted in His love and not rooted in fear, worry and anxiety you will experience His peace in the midst of the pain and suffering! As you totally focus on Him and not the problems, you will believe that He is the author and perfector of your faith.  As we continue to spend time with Him daily and read His Word we will be abounding in His love and overflowing with Thanksgiving for HIM!  No matter what you are going through, God’s promise is to never leave or forsake you! When you focus on your Father’s love for you, His power within you will erupt into Praise and Thanksgiving that will overflow to others!  C’mon!  Break out your praises to Him and let’s really have church!

As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him.

Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:5-7 AMP)

God loves you and so do we! May you have a very blessed Thanksgiving!

Do you believe the Lord hears your cries and sends an angel to accomplish your prayer?  My mother fell a couple of weeks ago on a Sunday morning.  She found herself not being able to get up!  She said, “Satan…I am not your child. I am going to go to church and you can’t stop me!   I am God’s child!”  She then cried out to the Lord and asked Him to help her to be able to get up and go to church.  Suddenly, she was able to crawl to the chair and pull herself up!  She knew that God had helped her.  She had fallen into her knitting bag and had puncture wounds in her arm.  She cleaned herself, finished getting dressed for church and  picked up her friend and drove to church. What an amazing God we serve!

Numbers 20:16-18Amplified Bible (AMP)

 But when we cried to the Lord, He heard us and sent an angel and brought us forth out of Egypt.

My mother cried out to God and He heard her cries!  Guess what!  If you are going through an affliction and can’t seem to get up you can cry out to God too!  He is faithful and will hear your cries!  He will send an angel to bring you out of this affliction into His arms of love!  He loves you so much!
