Humble Beginnings

Have you ever had a dream and wondered if it would ever come to fruition? Or have you found yourself in a dark place and wondered if you'd ever find your way out? Maybe you have a loved one who struggles with addiction, sickness, or is lost. In Matthew 13:31-32 we read, He told them another parable: 'The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that [...]

How to Make the Impossible Possible

  The cookbook from my Southern Elementary School class. Photo credit: Rebecca Fleming Do you remember your kindergarten teacher? I never attended kindergarten, but I taught kindergarten. I loved my students dearly. They were fun. They were trusting. They were adventurous. I could have walked in the door and told my class we were going to climb on the roof and learn to fly and I think they would have cheered and followed me. They trusted me. They believed in me; therefore, they followed me. As a result, our year together was filled with fun and adventure. As [...]

Making the impossible possible…

What's your dream? If you could do anything, go anywhere, see anything, what would it be? If you're having trouble coming up with an answer, think back to what you wanted to be when you grew up. Most of us put few restrictions on ourselves when we were little. We thought that anything was possible. What happened? We grew up. We allowed ourselves to get jaded. We factored God out of the equation and started looking at what we were capable of doing. Suddenly, our dreams got very small... small and realistic. Possible. Mark 10:14 says, When Jesus saw this, He [...]

How in the world did that happen?

Do you dream? Not just when you're asleep, but do you dream with your eyes open? It's suggested that the most successful people in the world are big dreamers. You might be one of those people that dreams, but you just don't call it dreaming.  Do you have a list of goals or wishes? It's the same thing. It's wanting something that is a reach, a stretch, or wildly beyond your control. Your dream may be something crazy, like winning the lottery and never having to work again. It could be noble, like wanting the hole in the heart of [...]

What’s your dream?

What do you dream about doing? Is there something you would love to do, but it seems too difficult, nearly impossible? God loves dreamers.  He writes about them in His book. Jacob was a dreamer.  In Genesis 28:10-22 he dreamed of a stairway going from heaven to earth with angels ascending and descending on it. God used the dream to speak to Jacob and let him know he wasn't alone. Joseph was a dreamer.  Just a few chapters later in Genesis 37, Joseph has two dreams and shares them with his brothers. His brothers weren't too impressed with his dreams. [...]

How to go from impossible to possible in one easy step:

What do you do when something seems impossible? Do you throw in the towel and walk away? Or do you look at it as an opportunity?  Do you like a good challenge? I remember the day God called me to step into the fight against human sex trafficking in America.  I thought I'd lost my mind.  Surely, God didn't just tell me I was going to become a voice for this issue. What could possibly qualify me to speak out against this issue? His answer was loud and clear, Me." How do you argue with that? Then I tried the [...]

The Voice!

Did you watch the season premiere of the Voice last night?  A friend of mine, James Shealy, auditioned.  He was one of the top 100 chosen for the blind auditions out of the 40,000 who tried out.  Unfortunately, none of the judges turned their chair around for him. Their loss, in my humble opinion. So, what does that mean? Does that mean he should go home, find a new dream, and move on? Absolutely not! It just means God has a different way of fulfilling the dream He planted in James' heart long ago. So many times when things don't happen the [...]

POSSIBLE!

Has God ever asked you to do or believe something that seems ridiculous, far-fetched or impossible? He did of Joshua. Joshua 6:1-2 says, Now Jericho was tightly shut up because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. Then the LORD said to Joshua, "See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.” Jericho was a fortified city.  As I was researching the walls of Jericho, I read, The mound, or “tell” of Jericho was surrounded by a great earthen rampart, or embankment, with a stone retaining wall at [...]
