How to Let Go of Worry

I pray that this post really penetrates your heart and mind, as you move forward in finding freedom over this issue in your life. Because that’s exactly what it is…an issue. I know sometimes we don’t want to believe or accept that we have issues in our lives, but the truth is that we do. Proverbs 4:23 tells us to, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” They stem from the heart. And God wants to deliver [...]

Keep Pressing In His Strength

I want to start this post by saying, “Keep pressing.” Meaning, stay faithful and persevere in the midst of fatigue, hurt, or whatever it is that could make you discouraged. Sometimes in this walk, we grow weary and get tired, but I want to encourage you today with God’s word, “So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.” (Galations 6:9 - NLT) If you don’t give [...]

Fighting the Good Fight of Faith… A Message On Finishing Strong

This week, I have a simple message delivered straight from God’s Word. I want you to really read this passage of Scripture and think about it, while weighing it to your life. As you read it, I want you to take each line…each sentence and really think about what its saying. Because as we draw closer to the soon return of Christ, we will need to truly know how to fight this good fight of faith and finish strong. Now, listen to what Paul is [...]

Becoming a Woman of Integrity

Hey, check this out! “Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all of their hearts.” This is from Psalm 119:1-2 (NLT). Now chew on those words for a moment. Did you know that when you search for Him with all of your heart and press to obey and follow what He desires, that you are becoming more and more of a woman of integrity AND this brings joy [...]

“Help Lord, I Don’t Want to Be Religious!”

Hurry up and catch yourself before you become religious, because now is not the time to get caught up with a religious spirit. Now, some of you reading this might be saying, “Wait, but what is a religious spirit, actually?” Trust me. It’s not a spooky thing. Yet, in its simplest definition, it’s when you’re going to church week after week after, yet not changing. It’s when you begin to do the same thing over and over again with no deliverance or results. You become [...]

Friendship: Finding New Christian Friends

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Do you sense that God may be leading you to surround yourself with more Christian friends? If so, I will tell you that it wouldn’t be a coincidence. Second Corinthians 6:14-15 says, “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can goodness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the Devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?” Wow! Hard truth, right? [...]

Facebook: The Ex-Factor…A MUST READ

Do you like social media? Well personally, I would say that I’ve actually grown to really like it. I will admit though at one time, I told my husband that I was not going to fool around with it, because it seemed like it could be addictive. Yet lo and behold, after giving it a whirl myself, I really began to like connecting with my new followers on Twitter and LinkedIn. And I thoroughly enjoy chatting with my family, friends, and fans on Facebook. It’s [...]

Can You Handle the Truth?

Wouldn’t you rather someone tell you the truth, than lie to you? I know that I would. And that’s why I think one of my favorite Scriptures is John 8:32 which says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” That is so true! I mean, who wants to live a lie or be told lies to believe? Remember, the devil is the father of lies, and the Bible commands us that we shall not lie. So instead of believing [...]

Don’t Stop Praying

That’s right! The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). That simply means to keep praying. It means to keep the lines of communication open at all times with God. A good way to look at it is that it’s a lifestyle. You can pray while you’re getting ready in the morning, driving on your way to work, on a morning or afternoon jog, washing dishes, or sweeping the kitchen floor (my personal favorite). You can pray for others when you see [...]

Out with the Old & In with the New You: A Lesson on New Wine in New Wineskins

The first part of this title is actually my slogan for Inside Out. In a nutshell, both parts represent “change.” Now, I know change is not always easy. Yet, in reality, the results can be pretty awesome when we allow God to do it within us. And that’s what this post is all about. It’s about getting rid of the old you (or old wineskins) and allowing God to change you from the inside out. Personally, I don’t drink. But the point is good! Check it [...]
