First things FIRST.....


Every single morning you wake up you have within your possession the same things you had when you went to sleep.
2015 is upon us and as I wake everything is the same.
I am surrounded by my children.
The blessings I had last night are with me still today, the responsibilities and callings placed on me are still before me today. Perhaps there were things you needed to deal with in 2014 that you thought you left behind. Unfortunately they are with you even this morning.  

Deep inside of all of us is this drive....
Wanting more. Wanting the meager to be abundant. Wanting the ordinary to be extraordinary. We dream BIG but neglect those things which beg for our attention NOW.
It's only when we learn to be content with the ordinary and when we are faithful with the meager that we see God begin do extraordinary things with the offerings we pour out day to day.  To do those "first things first...." so we can move on to the GREATER.

The widow woman gave the last bit of oil she had.
As she continued to be obedient and faithful with the little she did have God continued to give her the supply she needed for herself with more to give.

Be faithful with what's in your possession TODAY.
Your home. Your children. The things you DO have. The friends in your life. Your job. The things on your agenda today.
I encourage you to LOVE extravagantly and to GIVE bigger.  Be faithful with the things God is calling you to today...
And as you pour your life out as an offering .. as meager as it may *SEEM*....God will turn your meager little offering into extraordinary things.

May this year be a year full of HOPE, ABUNDANCE, PEACE and JOY!!!
