Are you pursuing the dreams God has given you? Are you allowing roadblocks and discouragement to have more power in your life than the Word of God? You have the tools and the power cooperating with God in faith and love to be fearless in expecting success. You have the power of choice–no one can stop you from being successful except you–and you are not a victim.

‘Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”’  John 19:11 NKJV.

Conquering worry, being decisive, being a life-long learner and handling criticism are powerful keys to walking out a life of success.  Working out of your purpose brings confidence and freedom from doubt.  Problems are not a sign of failure but a sign of life and we already have victory in this life.  Every difficulty is an opportunity for success when we understand God’s love and plan for us.  Who are you going to agree with today?

Living the keys,

He’ll Be the Fighter | Praying Our Promises 


As God gently and lovingly prunes us, we become more fruitful, and our true beauty comes out! The pruning process starts with God communicating to us in a kind, loving, compassionate way about something in us that He wants to adjust, like an attitude or opinion. In response, our willingness to repent (change our thinking) and obey takes us to the next step in our destiny. We can trust that anything He wants to prune in us is going to be good for us and is going to get us to where we really want to be!

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.” -John 15:1-3 (ESV)
