Confession over your family: Pastor Creflo Dollar

In my blog post yesterday I mentioned the importance of not forsaking your spouse and family. Often in the process of working in ministry your family can have an unintended “back-seat” if you’re not careful. It’s extremely important to keep this vital relationship in tact and at the forefront.

Remember, this is your first ministry.

I came across a daily confession for the family from Dr. Creflo Dollar, Pastor of the World Changers Church International. Pastor Dollar is a profound teacher and someone that I respect greatly for his work in the Kingdom.

Speaking life over my family is something that I do daily…so I thought I would share it with you.

Confess and be blessed!

Love ya!

Five Things I’ve Learned

There are several lessons that I’ve learned in the church planting process…but five stand out more than others at this point:

1. Prayer is essential (always)

2. A Godly example (mentor) is a must

3. Patience is a virtue

4. You can’t do all the work alone. You must have the support of a team of people.

Not that this is least important….

5. Never forsake your relationship with your spouse and family. They will provide strength and comfort like no one else.

I hope this helps someone. Love ya!

I Give Myself Away- William McDowell

Have you ever had a day or days when you didn’t know whether or not you’re coming or going? Whether you’re doing the right thing or not? Sometimes the weight of the assignment can seem overwhelming.

Our simple desire to please the Lord in all that we do canĀ get lost in all of the pressures that come along with being obedient. I know that may seem like a double-standard, but it’s true. There is a price you pay walking in the way The Father has planned for you.

I’ve come to discover this price has to do with how much we’re willing to sacrifice for His plan, will, and desires, versus- our selfish plan, will, and desires. Take my advice- Surrender.

Church Planting is a choice, but it should be one that is God led. If you’re like me…all my life’s training and development it seemed like was preparing for a life serving the needs of the secular world. Then God decides to interrupt what I thought was going to bring me joy and happiness. Walking away from all those noble ambitions is difficult. But I’d rather be in HIs will than any other place.

Here is a song that is somewhat a pesonal anthem. The song is entitled “I Give Myself Away” by William McDowell. Listen and be blessed!
