Here’s how I study the Bible sometimes. I just take a passage of Scripture and re-write it placing myself in the narrative, replacing pronouns. I like looking up a few words in the NASB Strong’s Concordance on Bible Hub.
David speaks as “the King”, with very poetic language. I am noticing how he delights in…
The feeling of hopelessness and despair can creep up on us like a little villain waiting to pounce, but he doesn't have to. No, we can stop and find our hope again, and find it fast!
Rest. It’s something that some people have no problem with. Then, there’s me. My brain tends to be super active all the time. I typically have a lot of energy, but then comes a 50,60, 70 hour work week. My reserves are drained. My emotions are spent. My spirit not particularly charged. All of a…
I don’t define myself by my failures.
I don’t define myself by my successes.
I don’t define myself by my outer beauty.
I don’t define myself by my clothes.
I don’t define myself by my stuff.
I don’t define myself by my income.
I don’t define myself by my social status.
I don’t define myself by my job.
I don’t define myself by…
I couldn’t help but think of so many practice spiritual and life lessons today that I learned while picking cucumbers! Yes, I just said picking cucumbers.
First thing I noticed was that in the places with the most vines covering the ground, were the highest number of hiding cucumbers. In fact, the most giant, plump…
Romans 12: 1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you…
1Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brothers to dwell together in unity!
2It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Coming down upon the beard,
Even Aaron’s beard,
Coming down upon the edge of his robes.
3It is like the dew of Hermon
Coming down upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the LORD commanded the blessing—life forever. …
Blink: The Revival is the next installment in the Blink series of shows, written and directed by Jeffrey Smith.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 KJV
One of the items on the Devil’s (The Thief’s) main agenda is to steal your ability to hear. When we hear the Word…
This last week I was on set for “NDE” Film that will be featured as part of the Blink production in October at City of Life. You are equipped for you dream!
1 Samuel 25 recounts the story of Nabal, Abigail, and David. This story happened after Samuel died, and before David was crowned King. I couldn’t help but practically weep over the grace that Abigail walked in as I read this story today, and how it propelled her to protect the destiny of the King David…
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21 (NASB)
I am at home overcoming a cold today. Notice, I did not say “I have a cold” because I do not wish to possess it. It is not mine. It does not lay claim…

13 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
24 But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. 26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is…
Philippians 4 (NASB)
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned[before], but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know how to get along with…
