I highly encourage dads, to make more of an effort in helping their daughter make the right decisions and choices for her life. A father’s influence is so very important in helping his daughter to feel worthy of who she is as a woman. Get involved with the disciplining of your daughter and get involved with her life. She needs this from you.

The two-faced person wants to obtain something from you, but is either too jealous or lazy to get it for themselves. The thing they want from you may vary, but the motivation won't -- they have chosen deception in order to get it. They behave in a manner that is not Godly, but that is petty, deceitful, and self-serving.
My name is Rachel Handler and my life changed forever on March 3, 2012. Some may consider me disabled now, but I don’t think the prosthetic limb I wear is a sign of loss. It is a symbol of empowerment and a reminder to overcome fear and embrace life.

Christians are on two polar extremes concerning praying against the devil, his agents and works. On one extreme, some Christians begin and end their prayers, with almost all their prayer points against the devil and his works. There is little or no time spent in worshipping and praising God; praying for other people and good things in their lives…
A stewardess forced the man to move because it was against their policy for a male to sit next to minor children. Talk about discrimination!

"If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency."
I cannot help but believe that some of the problems we are having in our society today would not be such a problem if we had fathers. How many families are there where children grow up not knowing their father? No wonder they have no respect for authority. Although my father was not a very well educated person, he knew how to use the Board of Education on the Seat of Learning for all his children.
By Tope Banjo Serving in the Helps Ministry is giving a hand of service towards the fulfillment of your Pastor’s God-given vision. And being effective makes you relevant.

In the last few weeks the media, including many Christian outlets have drawn Jesse Duplantis out on the carpet for saying that God wants him to have a 54 million dollar jet aircraft to aid him in his ministry.
My father committed suicide with an overdose of prescription medicine taken in conjunction with alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant that exacerbates suicidal tendencies in those who are prone to such self-destructive acts. I was 16 years old at the time. I was wrongly ashamed of my father's suicide for most of my life. In fact, that feeling of shame is one of the great regrets of my life. With the combination of drugs and alcohol my dad might not have even intended to take his life.

Lord, reveal my heart. Am I seeking to serve or to exert power? Amen. Especially as we endeavor to minister in spaces where exertions of power are manifest all the time, we're reminded not to respond like-for-like. Conflict never abates when retaliation occurs.
Are you afraid of death? Many people for fear of death have taken wrong steps and decisions, yet death has no power over a Christian believer, except he or she allows it.
In our spiritual house, spiritual termites could be compared to those things that erode our relationship with the Lord. They won’t cause you to lose your salvation because only a conscious decision to turn away from Christ can do that - but they can lead to such an attitude.
Have you ever waited on someone else to grant you permission or approval? Are you tired of the wait? Although you carry on with your daily life does it feel like you are living in limbo.

A few years ago I went and got my mass shooter certification. While I seldom do crisis work anymore, I thought the skill-set would be beneficial even if only on a personal level. But as the number of these shootings continue to increase, I have found myself taking more and more training's. I'm not sure how or why it has gotten so bad, but it is a subject that we can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to.
Without even realizing it, we sow every day. We sow in the morning, we sow at night. We sow when eyes are on us, we sow when no one is watching us. It's either we are sowing sparingly or we are sowing generously, it's either we are sowing actions that please our flesh or we are sowing actions that please the Spirit of God.
We live in historic times in America. The Left is in a full-scale war against a sitting President. Socialism is in vogue, thanks to Bernie Sanders. College campuses are social re-education camps, and young American's everywhere are sure life isn't fair. Suddenly being offended, the current fad, is as popular as the Pet Rock used to be. Our descent to Third World status is reaching warp speed.
In the movie "I can only imagine", the portrayal of Bart Millard's childhood abuse at the hand of his father breaks the silence many people endure. Today, our society in America is beginning to open up about many issues so people can have courage to seek help.
There are more than a few Christians today who claim that successful Christian living should involve financial prosperity. They say that if a believer is closely following Jesus as Lord and is taking hold by faith of what God is offering to them, that person should experience material wealth.
The Holy Spirit would be far superior to Jesus because the Spirit could be everywhere at once, whereas Jesus could only be in one place at a time. The disciples and all future believers would always be in communion with God.
Say sorry to your 'enemy' because you are really saying sorry to God. Go and do it. Go with your head held high, giving them eye contact, go there with dignity, and say it like you mean it. Account for what you can account for. God does not ask you to account for what they are expected to give. But, likewise, have no expectation of them.
