Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

Will you STAND?


Today at church Mark Palmer challenged me with an amazing word! In life we are thrown a lot of straight balls, balls that we expect weather they are good or bad we know they are coming. And in those times it is so easy to STAND and say how amazing our God is but it is in those moments when we are thrown a curve ball when it is the true test!


Is God still an amazing God when someone we are close to dies? YES
Is God still an amazing God when we lose our job? YES
Is God still an amazing God when our family is a mess? YES
Is God still an amazing God when it feels like our whole world is spinning out of control? YES

Is God still an amazing God when the decisions we make have bad consequences? YES
Is God still an amazing God when all of our earthly possessions are taken away? YES
Is God still an amazing God when our loved ones are making choices that effect you in a negative way? YES
Is God still an amazing God when it feels like Satan is attacking you the worst and it feels like it will never stop? YES
Is God an amazing God when we turn our backs and try to find our way on our own? YES
Is God an amazing God when we question who He is? YES
Is God an amazing God when we feel like we have no clue what the future holds? YES
Is God an amazing God when our dreams are not coming true in our time frame?
YES

And when those curve balls are pitched at us are we ready to STAND and say YES MY GOD IS AN AMAZING GOD! Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and FOREVER!
