Racial Colorblindness from a Color Blind Man’s Eyes

John Flowers Community, Family, Growth, Overcoming Fear, Prayer Leave a Comment

My mom cried when I showed her a picture of the way I see colors. It is indeed a sad reality when I stop to think about it.

Here is my bone to pick with the idea of being racially colorblind: that reality is extremely unfortunate.

Why would you want to settle for only 25% of the beauty in the world? Why would you want to limit your experience of humanity and creation to just a quarter of what is possible?

Grace that Empowers

JoAnna Fannin Fear, God's Love, Growth, Overcoming Fear, Walking with God Leave a Comment

by JoAnna Fannin One of the biggest blocks in many Christian’s lives – that keeps them from walking in freedom – is shame. Shame is defined as a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety. Our human nature has typically been conditioned to avoid the pain of embarrassment or humiliation, so when we find ourselves guilty, falling …

What Fuels Your Anointing

Kim Berg Authority, Awakening, Walking with God Leave a Comment

by Kim Berg “Your anointing does NOT fuel your assignment.” That is an intense statement to unpack. In a perfect world, in whatever holy, divine office that the Father asked me to step in to, I’d want to just drip oil and bless everyone I come across…I would ABSOLUTELY bless myself! This has not been my path though. It has …

The Consequences of Careless Words

JoAnna Fannin Authority, Community Leave a Comment

“I tell you, on the day of judgement people will give account for every careless word they speak for by your words you will be justified, and by words you will be condemned.” Matt. 12:36-37 I’m not sure that there is more sobering verse I could type at the top of this page, but there it is. I was just …

Prophecy and the Awkward Side of Obedience

John Flowers Evangelism, Hearing God, Overcoming Fear, Walking with God Leave a Comment

If I can remove myself from the center of the moment and allow Christ to be the center, then I can rightly perceive the whole situation. This is the parable that Jesus told about the servant who didn’t get congratulated for simply doing the job that was given to them by the Master (Luke 17:7-10). We don’t get extra credit for doing our assignment. When we look for applause or approval in prophetic ministry, we are short-changing the reward of God. We don’t get to satisfy ourselves, then have Abba reward us with a second helping. We choose who is in charge of our reward. It is either Abba or us.

David’s Tabernacle: Building Altars of Prayer and Worship in Our Cities

Michael Thornton Awakening, Prayer Leave a Comment

If David’s harp drove demons out of the King, then why can’t someone’s guitar played for God drive out evil forces over cities? It’s time to build altars of unending altars of worship & prayer in our homes, communities, and cities.

Better Get Ready. Things Have Changed.

The point is–it’s on YOU now. You can’t just attend and pretend. You can’t serve and perform for your spot in the Kingdom (not that you really ever could, ya know). The truth is, we are staring ourselves in the face, some of us for the first time in a long time. No more distractions (come on, seriously, get off Netflix). No more excuses (“I’m just too busy” or “I can’t find the time”). No more passing the buck and placing blame–we have to face our current reality and choose to join God in this.

What I did on my Coronavirus Staycation

Jessie Flowers Family, Quarantine, Walking through Suffering Leave a Comment

The couch is now a trampoline. I’ve stopped fighting it at this point. Jumping seems to be a requirement for my four year old’s sanity. Our carpet – a cereal bowl. Yep, I find a new Cheerio every 5 minutes. Even after I’ve just vacuumed. Approximately 3.5 million flecks of glitter cover surfaces like an unwanted electric flannel blanket in the sweaty heat of summer. It’s so bad that I keep finding it on my infant’s head. We need Terminix, but for glitter removal…
