Everyone wants to quit at some point. Especially me. But you have to go back to the beginning and ask yourself : "Why did I start this?", "Did God call me to do this", "Is the risk greater than my commitment?".
God told Joshua to meditate in the word day and night, then he would be successful. Because God knew if Joshua forgot the purpose of his call, he would forget to pursue the vision to fulfill his call.
All visionaries destined to greatness experience challenges. The bigger the vision the bigger the obstacles.
So are you man or mouse? Are you called or not? Either you heard God or you didn't. Now is not the time to back down. Push through. See this thing to the end.
Because YOU are destined for greatness!

Though my perspective is changing, one thing remains the same: God is the giver of life and not the taker of life.
I am reminded that one of the most important things in life is relationships. People matter. I know I should already know that, maybe I forgot.
It's time I take the walls down and let people in. So to my friends I haven't been friends to and those I haven't taken the time to get to know..........I apologize.
It's time I restart the conversation, so expect to hear from me more:)

Great memories are created from great traditions. That's what we strive for during the holidays....Great Memories! Every great memory has a great theme song. The music played in the background, that sets the atmosphere.
Our theme song for this Christmas is "A Fancy Yancy Christmas". This new Christmas album is a mixture of traditional Christmas carols and contemporary favorites, all performed in a fun way. You can check out the album at Itunes or Amazon.com, and of course Yancy's website.
Let this Christmas be the year you start some new traditions and let Yancy be this years theme song. Merry Christmas!

It's the goodness of God that leads men to repentance, not His anger or some fear tactic. Just simple kindness and generosity, all done in the name of Jesus.
People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care. This life isn't about me or my agenda, it's about helping people. Reaching outside my comfort zone to help someone who has a need. Oral Roberts said it best "Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the gospel, so we must go into every man's world". Investing into peoples lives is the only way we can expect to reach them.

What about all those people who seem to have everything going right? Why can't I be like them?
Where is God in all this? I thought He would help me through this?
Don't despise the day of small things. God said He is working in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure. It's so simple you want to get mad, but if you don't ask God for direction or for help, then His hands are tied. James reminds us to ask in faith. Faith is simply stepping out as if God is already doing the thing you asked Him, because He is.
- Keep your chin up, it will only get better from here.
- Trust God is always on your side, because he is.
- Ask the Lord for help, because He is our Great Helper.
- Step out of your comfort zone and act like God is doing what He said He would do.
Besides, the people you think have it all together are asking the same questions.

Do you listen and obey or do you disregard and defy? Are you quiet enough to hear His voice or is everything so loud you didn't know God would speak to you?
Let me assure you; God is speaking to us all the time. We just have to get quiet long enough to hear His voice. If prayer seems like a one sided conversation, do more listening than speaking.
"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise." We always come to God with the emphasis on Him. No matter how dire the need, we must deny ourselves to access His Grace. Grace is God empowering us to do what we couldn't do on our own. When we focus on Him we are enabled to do, become or recieve what we couldn't before.
Instead of going into prayer let's go Listen. Just remember He leads us by Peace (Is. 55:12).

So the question should be why don't I see that every time I look in the mirror?
As I pull back from the many distractions in life, most of which I volunteered for, I find myself accomplishing more. Not just more productivity, but greater focus and even greater results. The bible says if you bear fruit, God will purge us, that we will bear more fruit. This means cutting off those things that are sucking the life from your relationships, job and ministry.
Let's clear up what ministry really is. Hebrews 6:6 says "Those who come to God must believe that He Is and that He is a rewarder of those that Diligently Seek Him." First believing He not only exists, but also exists in your life to help you be successful. And a daily pursuit of Him, no matter how hectic things get. These two principles will act as the catalyst for serving God, your family, your job and everyone else. So let your daily life be your ministry.
As John Maxwell says "walk through the crowd slowly." Enjoy everyday, treat everyone with the respect you would want and cherish your family. Let that be your launch pad into limitless possibilities. You will thank me later.
