Looking for a way in...

Triumphant Victorious Reminders As Paul greeted in every letter, so I echo, "God's grace and peace be unto you in Jesus name". His supernatural power to empower us to rise above shame and sin along with making our crooked paths straight. That alone amazes me.  As my husband reminded me this morning, just think, GOD is always looking for a way in - never a way out. His love wants to bleed into our relationships with family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc. to cause us to fight FOR one another in prayers of His Word and covering.  As we look for a way IN to keep our relationships; some may have co-parts that don't and are looking for a way OUT. It is now my prayer for those to begin to look not for a way out; but press INTO HIM! It takes brave ones to look for a way in.  Jesus is our greatest example.  How do we not quit?  How do we not allow weariness to make us want to give up?  We focus on Jesus Who


Triumphant Victorious Reminders If you told me who you were, would you be able to do so without describing what you do? Think about that question. Who are you really? What is it about "you" that causes the earth to be wow'ed by your place in this world? What is it about "you" that causes the earth to be wow'ed In this time? Let me help you with those questions...this is who you really are a child of the Most High God. He doesn't want to just be known as "Master" - HE now wants you to know HIM as "Father"/"Husband" (Hosea 2:14-15). How about God? Would you be able to describe WHO HE is, for WHO HE IS? Or would our assessment and description of GOD be a list made up of what HE has done or how HE has "performed"? Yikes. Just asking that to myself causes me to be quickened to our GOD, as there is no one like HIM...NO ONE! Do you know that HE knows you? Do you know th

Motivating Versus Deactivating

Triumphant Victorious Reminders Inspired by Holy Spirit Written by: Teresa Ann When a team of people are not stirring in prosperity and creativity, it is most likely not just the fault of the team - it might be a combination of both the team and the leader. Are we leading others by manipulation, lies, intimidation and/or fear? Are we insulting them in front of others and actually believe the lie that they will be greater producers due to humiliation? Or are we leading by encouragement and recognizing our family/teams strengths and allowing them to thrive? A leader gives the "why" to what is expected so understanding comes and fewer mistakes are made when they know the reason. A true leader takes time to appreciate their people and highlight the victories and wins; acknowledge the mistakes and teach the team how even in the fails, there's a learning lesson of what not to ever do again - every fail can become a win if and more importantly when we le

Lesson of Repentance

Triumphant Victorious Reminders Inspired by the Holy Spirit Written by: Teresa Criswell (Repost: Written January 18, 2012) "Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?" ~ Romans 2:4 ~ Slipping back into time, it was 1988; my eighth grade year. My parents experienced grueling frustration as they were continuously receiving reports from my teachers of me carrying on in class, not taking my classes seriously and consistently getting into trouble for being one of the 'class clowns'. In hind sight, as a parent myself, the acting out wasn't their greatest frustration; it was my overall attitude of not caring, which to say the least, my grades mercilessly reflected. Meanwhile, during this time, I still remember my wonderful dad. I shake my head in awe as my dad continuously believed in me. He would even say in the darkest times of my life, "Teresa, God has a

Did you know?

Triumphant Victorious Reminders Inspired by the Holy Spirit Written by: Teresa Criswell So much has happened over the last 13 years of my life since I FINALLY said, "Yes to Jesus!" All those moments being drawn to go deeper into the roots of GOD and HIS righteousness and wanting to know this GOD who in HIS love and redemption extended HIS mighty hand and said, "Let's do may not believe in ME, like you want, and you may not believe in yourself, but I believe in you for I see what's about to bloom and the fragrance of MYSELF you will leave behind..." That alone is a "doubt destroying" thought into a "faith exposing" life in wanting GOD more and more as HE beckons us to draw closer to WHO HE IS. Did you know there was a time I was so far away that I truly thought life didn't matter? Did you know that the very words you read were never even a thought in those moments of waywardness? Did you know I was so deceive
