Big Giant! BIGGER Victory!

How many of you woke up today and looked in your mirror and said… 


What about since this COVID19 pandemic? Have you said I am brave?

Now let me ask you this…How many times this past week have you told yourself YOU CAN’T?

Maybe you’re saying, Vahen I DO NOT FEEL COURAGEOUS! I feel weak and if they ONLY knew how much I was struggling to keep going…

The attached video is the message I posted live on my social media this past Sunday, and I pray it will encourage you.

Let me ask you this. Have you had to go out and get your own groceries since this pandemic? 


A few months ago who would have thought that going to the grocery store would be considered courageous!

Can I ask you to send me a message and tell me what courageous thing you did this week, even when you told yourself I CAN’T? 

I think of the story of David and Goliath, I Samuel 17. Did you know that before David slayed Goliath, this giant came out and taunted the people for 40 days? Goliath would come out and say who will fight me? But the Israelite’s would stay paralyzed by fear and remain defeated. While a WHOLE army said, I CAN’T, David said I CAN! But not in he’s own strength and power but in God’s. 

Are you feeling paralyzed today by the circumstance that we’re in right now? Are you walking around defeated?

I don’t have this all figured out, and trust me I still fear, but I have not let my fear control me.

You in the front lines, you in the “essential services” industry. You who go out to get supplies for your family or those who can’t. To you who are struggling at home wondering how you’re going to keep sanity or peace in your home, or in your OWN mind.

You might be afraid – but You ARE DOING IT ANYWAY! In spite of overwhelming fear and opposition. THAT’S COURAGE!

Yes we are facing a BIG giant but an even BIGGER VICTORY is awaiting you even TODAY. If you choose to access God’s strength, to give you peace as the giant of fear and intimidation is breathing down your neck, don’t you think that’s a pretty BIG victory?

Confidence - Sanctus Real

I want to encourage you to keep stepping out to face your giants. I am also going to challenge you today and in the coming days, that the only I CAN’TS you say to yourself is – I CAN’T QUIT! But more importantly, GOD, I CAN’T Do this without YOU!

The Power of Prayer & A Father’s Heart!

Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?

If I Had ONLY Known…

I would have put off all the things I had to do.” A very powerful lyric from the Casting Crowns song, Scars In Heaven. 

Hearing this song, in light of hearing the news of my dear friend Dr. Garry E. Milley, who passed away in his sleep this past week, was what inspired me to write this blog for you today. Dr. Milley was my professor, a mentor, and dear friend, and I pray you are encouraged, as I share some golden nuggets from our interview, that I always PLANNED on sharing.
