Do not miss next Tuesday @yourfaithchurch @catalystleader one day @craiggroeschel and @brianchouston will be with us!

The other day, I tried to make some cornbread for dinner, but it turned out to be a miserable FAILURE!
I put it in the oven and then left the house, for just a few minutes, to run some errands. (Umm…I guess you’re not supposed to do that!) I came home to a smoky kitchen and a little black dried up brick-like thing in my oven.
The rest of my dinner was ready, but now, I don’t have any cornbread. So, I mixed up ANOTHER batch.
The instructions said to bake it for 25 minutes at 425. I can’t WAIT that long! I want it to be done in 15! So, I just raised the temperature up to 450 degrees to compensate.
When I took it out, it looked pretty good on the outside. But on the inside, it was gooey, GROSS and totally inedible!
You know, God has a plan and a process designed to help us fulfill our dreams. HIS TIMING is always perfect. But sometimes, we get in such a hurry that we get out ahead of Him.
That NEVER works!
When we’re stubborn, when we refuse to follow His instructions, when we try to rush things and go it alone…our dreams can fail!
Don’t settle for something that’s HALF-BAKED!
Wait upon the Lord! God wouldn't have given us this passion and desire unless He already had a detailed plan to BRING ALL OUR DREAMS TO PASS!

Our family travels a lot and we LOVE to shop! So, one of the first things we do in every new town…is find out where the NEAREST MALL is!
Even in a strange new place, I never worry about being able to find the bathroom. Because, in every mall concourse there’s that GIANT MAP that shows the location of all the stores and restrooms.
And because I have no earthly idea where I am; right next to the big red dot, it always says… “YOU ARE HERE!” Hallelujah!!!
God wants us to get to where we’re going. But, many times, we won't take that first step and observe WHERE we are in life.
We don't want to look at that because we don't think we've achieved ENOUGH at this stage of our lives.
We don't want to examine where we are because we don't want to talk about our shortcomings.
But, that's the first step before going to the next level. Don't be afraid to honestly examine WHERE YOU ARE. Don’t be afraid of what you’ll find. “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand…” Zachariah 4:10 (NLT)
When God sees us embark on something new, when He sees us STRETCH, when He sees us MOVE, when He sees us get UNCOMFORTABLE…He gets excited!
He says, “YES! They’re really gonna do it! They're really gonna do what I created them to do!”

“for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’” - Deuteronomy 20:4

When Austin was about three years old, I was a single mom. I remember, that I had TWENTY-FOUR DOLLARS to buy our groceries for the entire week.
I knew, if I could find a store that was selling hamburger on sale for 99 cents, I could buy three pounds and that would feed the two of us for seven days. I scoured the ads with my coupons and calculator, until I found the best deal.
I was always adding everything up and calculating the tax, because I never wanted to get to the cash register and have to put something BACK. (That’s embarrassing!) That was a different time in my life. There was nothing wrong with it. That's where I came FROM. That's been part of my journey.
If that sounds like your story, it’s OK. “Like” where you came from. Don’t be ashamed of it. OWN IT…it’s what made you who you are, today!
We could still manage to be happy living like that, but, thankfully, God doesn't LEAVE US there.
If you’re at the end of your rope and thinking of letting go…that’s GREAT!
God has been WAITING for you to realize that you can’t do this on your own. When we finally come to the end of what WE can do, then God is free to take over and do what HE CAN DO!
If we’ll stop hanging on to our silly pride and let God pick up the slack in our lives…He has a BETTER life in mind for us!
He is the author and the finisher of our faith, and He’s NOT FINISHED with us yet!

God uses the foolish to confound the wise. Your PAIN is probably what God will use as your PLATFORM.
Remember, your past DOES NOT define your future. Your past just prepares you.Don’t count yourself out!

If you had told me in the 90’s that I would be a pastor of a large mega-church, speaking to thousands every week….I would have thought you were CRAZY!
Don’t you know my history?
Recently, it was my great pleasure to be interviewed by Dr. Steve Greene of the Charisma Podcast Network. We talked about the “Hi God” book, my personal journey as a woman in a leadership role and balancing family and work.
