P-90X #Prayerfor90Days "Choices Series"

Behave: “What You will Be and Have”

Our conduct and behavior is crucial in every area of our lives.  It is all about How You Behave!  Your behavior is a pattern of your actions, responses (internal and external), and your mannerisms.  Our behavior is our daily conduct.  What does your conduct say about you? 

While researching the word conduct, I discovered a unique aspect of the word.  It means to manage oneself. To manage means to take charge or take care, and to dominate or influence.  Let’s break this down into two different aspects: you and everyone else. The “you” factor of management is how you take charge and take care of yourself.  Have you truly taken charge over your life?  It is time for you to take ownership of your life.  Be the one to make the decisions about your life; do not leave it to the opinion of a mortal man. 

When was the last time you made a decision about your life and it was not dependent upon how it would affect everyone else?  If you are like me, then it has been awhile.  Yes, you are a husband/wife, dad/mom, co-worker, friend, and minister (the list could go on and on), but these are the roles of life. When we consider our behavior, we always do it in light of our roles.  We behave in such a way because it is what a “father/mother, minister, friend, and a man/woman of a certain age should behave or act like.” 

Our behavior should be based on who we are, and not the roles of life.  You are not a Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.  Yes, you are one person with multifaceted roles, but still one man/woman, who has been neglected and is now ready to be loosed.  Release him/her, so you can live a total life and not just many parts and roles.

Psalm 101:2-“I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.”

Behave: To act in a particular way; conduct or comport oneself: to act properly, to act or react under given circumstances.  To act, react, function, or perform in a particular way; to manage or govern in point of behavior, and to discipline, to handle, and to restrain.

Be: To exist or live; to take place, happen, and occur. To occupy a place or position; to continue, to exist in actuality, and to have life or reality.

Have: To possess, own, or hold for use; to contain, or accept in some relation; to get, receive, or take. To have a part in something, to experience, undergo, or endure as joy or pain. To engage in or carry on, to permit, allow, be in control, to know, understand, or be skilled in.

Psalm 101:2 (see above) tells us that we should conduct ourselves in wisdom, and in a “perfect” way.  The word perfect in this verse means to be complete.  The psalmist is essentially telling us that we should behave wisely and be complete in all of our ways.  The psalmist tells us that this behavior has to stem from the Heart!  The condition of the heart reveals our true behavior and intentions.  The intent of your heart leads you in all the ways of life.  Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).  The intent and motive of your heart is the launching pad for your behavior.  Your heart is the keepsake of your life.  If this is the place where the issues of life are kept, then you need to guard it. Guard your life by guarding your heart. We put security systems inside of our homes to protect our possessions, but we often do not set up any parameters to safeguard our hearts and our lives.

God’s Perfect Plan for Sexuality and Family

By: Dee Barnes

P-90X #Prayerfor90Days “This is How It Feels to Be Free”


Dee Barnes’ Journey from Homosexuality to a Ministry of Hope

by Scott Tompkins

When Dee Barnes tells her story and dances to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s “This is How It Feels to Be Free” the hearts of her listeners soar too.

Seeing her joy, few can imagine how this wife and mother of three from Atlanta, who was a recent speaker in U of N’s Introduction to Biblical Counseling School, once languished in sexual and relational brokenness. Dee tells her story to give others hope that they too can be free.

She is the chairman of Resurrection Life Ministries in Atlanta, working closely with former, YWAM Amsterdam leader, Pat Caven, who also speaks regularly in the Kona IBC School. Both are also involved with the nationwide ministry called Living Waters, which helps people who struggle with sex addiction, homosexuality and many other relational issues.

“First Chronicles 16:9 says to “tell of God’s marvelous works” and I am one of His marvelous works,” Dee says.

Her story mirrors that of many involved in a homosexual lifestyle: emotional detachment from mom in early childhood, molestation by a male neighbor, a sense of shame, followed by promiscuity and more pain.

“In college I got pregnant and aborted the baby,” Dee says. “After that my promiscuity got worse and worse. At age 21 I had my first lesbian relationship. It was with a friend who was married at the time. Her husband was gone a lot and our emotional dependency became sexual. Our relationship led to the breakup of their marriage.”

Through theses years she kept up “a good girl image” with family and friends but began going regularly to gay bars. “I was excited when I first went and met so many gay people.”

Dee began pursuing a woman who said she was a Christian, but was living a lesbian lifestyle. “She told me homosexuality was wrong, and I asked her how she knew that. She said it was in the Bible. Then she asked if I had a personal relationship with Jesus. I didn’t know. She said if I had one, I’d know it.”

Something began stirring in Dee’s heart, a desperate desire to be set free from the pain and bondage she felt. “I wanted out and asked God to whatever it takes.”

The next Sunday she found her way to a charismatic church where, after the sermon, the pastor called people to come forward if they wanted to “get right with God.”

“I didn’t want to go forward, but the Holy Spirit drew me there. Through tears I repented for the life I’d been living and asked Jesus into my life. That day it felt like 5,000 pounds lifted off my shoulders.”

Dee describes the next two years as a “honeymoon time with the Lord.” She left the gay lifestyle, began growing in faith and, to her great surprise, was pursued with relentless love by a wonderful man who became her husband. Later is became apparent that she still needed to deal with root issues that led to all the pain of her previous life. She contacted Pat Caven and husband, Mike, both of whom had come out of homosexuality themselves and were counselors for Resurrection Life Ministries. Dee began individual counseling and the six months healing program called Living Waters.

“Living Waters was a powerful tool God used to bring great healing in my life,” Dee says. “Jesus will set you free, but you have to be willing to let go of the lifestyle and face up to the root issues that took you there.”

One of Dee’s greatest joys is that her friend who first told her about life in Jesus has now fully embraces Him herself after 27 years in the gay lifestyle. Like Dee, she found freedom when she surrendered completely to Jesus! Living Waters helped her deal with the root issues that troubled her for so long. “God has not dealt with me as my sins deserve,” Dee says. “I don’t deserve a husband because I broke up a marriage. I don’t deserve a baby because I killed one. Yet God has given me a wonderful husband and three great kids. And more than that, He’s given me a life of joy and freedom I could never have imagined.”

P-90X #Prayerfor90Days Prayer of Thanksgiving & Gratitude

Prayer of Thanksgiving & Gratitude

Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus, my Lord and my Savior. I come to You with a heart of humility, praise and thanksgiving. I thank you for all the good things in my life, for You are the Creator of all things good. Father.  I come to You in gratitude, in love, and through the precious Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father, I thank You that Your Word says that when I pray to You that You will hear me according to Job 22:27-28. Heavenly Father, Your word says that in every place I  go where Your Name is remembered, You will come to me  and bless me according to Your word in Exodus 20:24, and Your presence will go with me  wherever I  go and You will give me  rest according to Exodus 33:14.

 I thank You for Your Presence. For in Your Presence is the fullness of my joy and in Your Presence I am complete and whole. In Your Presence I have purpose. Because of Your Presence, I am glad to be here. Thank You for the instruction and counsel that You will give me, and always keeping Your  eye upon me. Father, I thank You for Your plan, that I might have a full life and enjoy it and have it in abundance to overflowing. Father, I thank You for Your provision, that all my needs are met according to Your riches in glory and that I may prosper in all areas of my life as my soul prospers. Father, I thank You for Your protection, that Your perfect love casts out all fear and that no weapon formed against me shall prosper.  

I  thank you that You continually guide me  and satisfy my  desires in dry and wilderness places that I find myself in, thank you Father for your Word that is strength to my  bones and I will be like a watered garden and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail, according to your Word.  Isaiah 58:11.  Heavenly Father, I thank you for destroying any evil that is coming against me, thank you for Your angels encamping about me and chariots of fire are all around me, my family, and those that I pray for. I thank You that I can come and hide myself in You in times of trouble, and a flood of great waters will not reach me.  I praise you for the songs of deliverance that You surround me with, that flow through my heart and my thoughts and lift me above my circumstances.  Father, I thank You for Your peace, The peace that passes all understanding.  The peace that keeps me calm and secure through adversity.  The peace that leads me through all the storms that come into my life.  Father, thank You for my life and Your Presence in it. 

Heavenly Father, I  thank You that You put all things under the feet of Jesus, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Heavenly Father, I thank you that you have opened my eyes to see how great You are and how complete Your provision is for me, my family, and those that I pray for. .  I thank You that I am blessed, my transgressions are forgiven, and my sin is covered.   I thank You that the victory the Jesus won for me on the Cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and I am seated with the Lord Jesus in the heavenlies. Heavenly Father, by faith and in dependence upon You; I put off the fleshly works of the old man and stand unto all the victory of the crucifixion where the Lord Jesus provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on myself the new man and I stand into all the victory of the resurrection and the provisions that the Lord Jesus has made for me, my family, and those that I pray for. 

Heavenly Father, I put off all forms of selfishness, self-centeredness, and grumbling, and put on myself the new nature of Jesus Christ with its love, praise, and gratitude. I put off all forms of fear and put the new nature of Jesus Christ with its courage. Lord, I thank you that I am able to stand in the victory of the ascension and glorification of the Lord Jesus, whereby all principalities and powers were made subject to Him. I claim our place in Jesus as victorious with Him  Heavenly Father, I thank You for keeping me watchful and praying at all times.  I decree and declare that will trust in You, Lord and Your lovingkindness will surround me.  I rejoice in You, I will be glad in You.  Heavenly Father, strengthen me in my inner man to do Your will and receive all of the blessings of the upright in heart. 

I thank You that Jesus is able to do abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us. To Him be the glory in the church by Jesus Christ to all generations, forever and ever. Amen!

The Miracle of Gratitude

By: Pastor Tina McCrea

I have recently celebrated my Jubilee (50th) birthday.  Looking back over the past 10 years I have been anxious over lost time.   This nagging sense of regret and grief was actually tormenting me and I didn't truly realize it.  I was always trying to figure out what went wrong.  This sense of lost time seemed insignificant to others because I had gained so much and in fact I had recovered much of the things which were lost but not the time.   No matter how successful I became or how much God did for me I stilled longed for the lost time and became discouraged.  I once read that discouragement is no respecter of persons.  

It is the number one tool of the enemy to get our minds and hearts diverted from focusing on thanking God.  Before you know it your prayers turn into accusations towards God.  It is so easy to focus on the problems around you when you encounter difficult circumstances.  All I could see is myself and how others had robbed me of my time.  Once I had a dear friend and hairstylist help me refocus through the eyes of faith and see that the LORD had a plan and that HE is always in control even when life feels like it is spiraling out of control.

As the years progressed, I have learned like Paul to become grateful for his grace because over this time that I assumed that I lost, I actually gained a new perspective of who the Father was.  This scripture sums it up for me in that through the eyes of gratitude I found the Father to be a gracious savior, who showered me with a manifold of tender mercies every day, and I got to know Him as the God of All Comfort through the Holy Spirit.  This comfort has enriched my life with such a strength and resolve that I am compelled to share with and comfort others. 

Corinthians 1:4-9

In this reflection, I can say that I do not always get it right even today however I motivated by gratitude and not grumbling.  Refocusing on gratitude instead of what went wrong has made my marriage more pleasant, my daughter is more confident that she really  can do all things through Christ who gives her the strength even if she makes a mistake because I am no longer there pointing out what went wrong but pointing her to a place of prayer and thanksgiving. As for me, I am able to see the Father glorified through each and every year that has past as well as trust His faithfulness with my future. 

Today I challenge you to Change Your Life With The MIRCALE of Gratitude.
"The Miracle of Gratitude
 is that it shifts your perception
to an extent that it
changes the world you see."

P-90X #Prayerfor90Days Loving God, Loving Yourself, & Loving Others Series

How to Handle Your Enemies

“But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them” (Luke 6:32).

How to Love the Unlovable?

Now for the True Test of Love.  Do you love your enemies?  Go ahead and be real; it is just you there. Do you really love those who are plotting against you, those who want to see you fail, and those who say you will not make it?  Don’t be gullible and na├»ve while loving your enemies, but be Christ-like and pray for their souls. Do not wish them ill will, but bless them and don’t stoop to their level by rendering evil for evil.  

You have to forgive those who have hurt you and accept the things that have already happened in your life.  You can’t go back and you can’t undo what has been done, but you can go forward and not repeat the same mistakes.  You can choose today not to repeat the same mistakes again and not allow others to do what has already been done to you before.  How you treat others is what matters.  Once you give love, you will get it.  Allow love to cover your words, actions, and deeds. 

The Hard Task: Pray for Your Enemies

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the sinners do so?” (Matthew 5:44-47).

Honestly, it sounds ludicrous, to say that you should pray for someone who makes it their mission to inflict pain in your life. However, I submit to you no one is better equipped to pray for them than you!  You are the person receiving the sad antics of their meanness, jealousy, and their pain projected upon you. You know better than anyone how much help they really need. Turn your anger into prayer and intercession for your enemies.  Who knows, afterwards they may not be your enemy any more.  The test of true character is not on their part, but on yours!

Friend or Foe?

Can you tell the difference between a friend and a foe?  What are the characteristics of a good friend?  What are the characteristics of foes?  We must consider these poignant questions in our current relationships and in those that we are now considering pursuing.

There are many reasons and seasons why people come into our lives. Some come to make a difference in our lives, and some even come to leave our lives.  After knowing your life purpose, it is equally important to know who should be in your life.  The right road with the wrong people can be detrimental.  The enemy knows that his best avenue to invade, destroy, or sidetrack your life and purpose is through ungodly and unfulfilling relationships.  Right now, think for a moment before you continue reading of a time when you were sidetracked and taken off course… Now think of the person who facilitated this, and realize that was a plot of the enemy to derail you!

Foes: These types of people are harmful, destructive, jealous, envious, conniving, and self-centered. They are non-supportive and co-dependent. There are Rules, but no boundaries in these relationships!  Foes are controlling, needy, and parasitic.  Foes have bad motives, and no maturity or real development comes out of the relationship.

They are not your friends, but your shadows, the dark spots and places in your life.  They cannot always be found; it is only when they are able to intercept your light that they appear.  A Shadow is defined as a dark figure or image cast on the ground or some surface by a body intercepting light.  It is a period or instance of gloom, unhappiness, mistrust, doubt, or dissension in a friendship or one's life.  A shadow is also a dominant or pervasive threat, influence, or atmosphere.  

A foe is a shadow that follows another person in order to keep surveillance on that person as a spy or detective.  Foes (shadows) are a rough image cast by an object blocking rays of illumination.  The Foes (shadows) in your life are the blockers of your future!

“Rejoice not when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles or is overthrown, 18Lest the Lord see it and it be evil in His eyes and displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him [to expend it upon you, the worst offender]” (Proverbs 24:17-18 AMP).

A Depiction of a Foe/Antagonistic Relationship:

Peninnah and Hannah

Some would think at this age and stage in our lives as men & women that we should be able to recognize a good friend.  I find that with each stage of life, we learn just who our real friends are.

“Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:  2And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.  5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the Lord had shut up her womb.  6And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb           
(1 Samuel 1:1-6 KJV).

The whole motive of a foe is to remind you of what is not going right in your life and to let you know that what you want, they already have.  They provoke you to come out of your godly character, and they do not let up until they have caused a breakdown in your life.  They make you fret and doubt what you know to be true about God and His promises toward you.  Believe it or not, they are good for a season in your life because they cause you to pursue destiny in order to prove them wrong.  They catapult you into destiny with their motives of trying to hold you back and down.  They were born as an adversary in your life, but you will be victorious.  Judas had his place in Jesus’ destiny; he helped Jesus get to the Cross at the right time for us to be saved.  The betrayal can be the very blessing that makes you continue forward.  Remember, they are only in your life for a season, but don’t give them a position or permanent role.

P-90X #Prayerfor90Days Loving God, Loving Yourself, & Loving Others Series:

Loving Yourself

You have to view your life, marriage, and the relationship you have with your kids (family) from the perspective of the oxygen masks on an airplane. Before taking off, the airline stewardess will demonstrate how to put on an oxygen mask. But it is the profound words that she says about who you should place the mask on first, YOU! Yes, she tells you no matter who is sitting next to you, no matter if it a child, elderly person, or someone that is disabled, always put your oxygen mask on first! WOW! What insight we can gain from this. You have to see about yourself as it realtes to needs before you can be of any service, help, or assitance to anyone else.

Basically,  the airline stewardess is saying, if you put someone else’ s mask on, you may not even have the opportunity to put yours own. No more guilt over meeting your needs! You have to put your “oxygen mask” on first then assist your spouse and children in their needs, wants, and desires.It is not the desire of any person (especially a spouse or parent) to put their “oxygen mask” on first, but it is a Need for you to do so in order to be the best person you can. You have to get a new working defintion of Needs & Desires as it relates to you as a holistic person.

Wives & Moms: If you really want to love your husband, then take care of & love his wife (you). Moms, if you really want to love your children, then take care of & love their mom (you).

Husbands & Dads: If you really want to love your wife, then take care of & love her husband (you). Dads, if you really want to love your children, then take care of & love their dad (you).

To take care of yourself would seem to be something that no one would have to tell you, but as men & women (husbands/dads & wives/moms) we are always worried and consumed by everyone else’s needs.  When was the last time you did something for you?  It is wonderful to do great things for others, but charity starts at home, and then it goes abroad.  If you neglect yourself, then are you really helping others?  If you are in a place of restlessness, burnout, and hopelessness, then you will not be good for others.  You have to consider yourself and really focus on your needs to make sure you are equipped to complete the tasks before you.

“Don’t Take Your Strength for Granted”

We are always being and doing for others, but you have to remember that there is one person who needs you most--You!  Really take inventory over the next month of all the demands, activities, errands, and everything else on your to-do list and see where some things can be eliminated.  Again, what is needed vs. what is necessary?  Allow God to be the deciding factor.  Once you have looked at your full monthly calendar and considered everything, then go back in the recesses of your mind and figure out how you got to this place. 

As a person, you have come to the place of being so inundated with stuff that you have allowed it to define who you are.  If you took all the stuff and the busyness away, then what is left? Who do you see when you look at yourself?  Are you afraid of just being alone with yourself?  I think you are missing out on the greatest relationship that is always near you, the one with yourself!  Do not forget to put yourself on your own guest list. Invite yourself to the greatest party--Your Life!

The “Do You” List:

I know you have to have a “to-do list” every day, but you need to have a “Do You” List! We are constantly doing things, but we sometimes forget ourselves.  This list will help you achieve the optimum you, so that you can live a life full and overflowing and not one of weariness. This list helps you to take off the Superman/Superwoman Cape and put on the Robe of Care for yourself.  We as spouses & parents are constantly wearing the cape of “I can do it all” when God is only requiring us to put on the Robe of Care.
Today, decide to change your wardrobe and give up your cape for the Robe of Care!  Your password for your life is LIBERATED.  The login name is YOU… You have to sign-on and login to your own life.  It is time to feel completely free being you.  

This is Your “Do You” List:

1)      Accept You
2)      Love You
3)      Trust You
4)      Affirm You
5)      Respect You
6)      Be You

Accept yourself no matter what. Have a great appreciation for who you are. There will always be things that you want to change, but you have to have initial acceptance of who you are and rejoice in the value of your life.  Know what qualities are simply a part of you and know the things that you do have the power to change.  You become better when you choose to. 

Love yourself. If you do not, then no one else will. Take time to love yourself through words, care, and doing fun things.  You are worth it and you do deserve it.  Always keep a healthy self-esteem; fall in love with you, and then others will too.

Trust yourself no matter what.  You are your own greatest ally.  Decide every day and in every situation to be honest and trustworthy. 

Affirm yourself. You know you can do it, you know you will make it, and you know you are beautiful.  Say and do things to affirm yourself and the overall goal of your life.  Only allow things, people, and places into your life that affirm and add to who you are. Dismiss those things that subtract from you.

Respect yourself every day.  Never allow anyone to degrade you or treat you as less than who you are.  Always regard yourself highly and keep your dignity, integrity, and self-respect as a top priority.

Be You.  If you do not be you, then who will?  God made you and He doesn’t make mistakes, so you are what He wants you to be.  Seek God for improvements, and not the opinion of man.  Be proud to be you, even the past you.  You are a compilation of your life experiences and they have made you who you are today.

Every day, you have to keep this “Do You” list before you.  No matter what situation you face, you will always need to Accept you, Love you, Trust you, Affirm you, Respect you, and Be you!  When you don’t “Do You,” then you are a half-empty woman.  The only way to be full is to fully “Do You!”

Take time now to write out the “Do You” list several times on a piece of paper, sticky note, or index card. Put the list on the bathroom mirror, in the car, at your office, and wherever else you need a reminder of how great you are. A Total Man/Woman does the “Do You” list every day.

Breaking Free: The Movement Homosexuality (Pt.2) Min. Eugene Blakely




One day as I was watching television, a sharp pain developed within the top left tooth of my mouth. It was baffling to me seeing that I went to the dentist just a week ago and had a filling in that tooth. A week later, I went back to my dentist. I described the pain and told her the situation about the filling. She immediately identified the problem as a root canal. I began to ask, “Why do I need a root canal when I just had a filling?” She said they put a filling where a root canal should have been done.

She explained to me that the filling took the pain away temporarily, but if the tooth was going to be saved from extraction, she would have to dig down in the root of it.  It is amazing life operates like this as well. We look at the struggles in our lives and only focus on the symptoms or filling, but never try to discover the root of the problem. When I look at King David on his dying bed pouring out his life lessons to his son, I see he forgets to tell him the root of lust that travels in their bloodline.

This mistake leads Solomon almost to lose the Temple of God to pagan gods. Too many men, are fighting symptoms, but not confronting the roots that continue to bring the same problem year after year. When I was going through homosexuality, I remember telling myself, “I only feel like this because I have no friends or a companion that I can share my thoughts and inspiration with.” I began a journey of searching for people to please me, make me feel important, or make me feel like I was somebody. A couple years after I was saved, I felt myself going back to that place.

God immediately stopped me and said, “Your loneliness is not the absence of people, but the absence of Purpose.” God said, “When you find purpose, I will put you with the right people.” I understood in that moment that homosexuality was a symptom, and the lack of purpose was the root. My life felt suicidal all the time because there was an empty hole called purpose. The enemy will always try to attack you by drawing your focus to the current issue (symptom) instead of the root of the problem.

When you look at King Saul in the book of Samuel, you see a man offering sacrifices without a heart transplant. But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). Saul never wanted to confront the roots in his life because he was too busy trying to please the people. Saul forgot to please the very One who placed him on the throne in the first place, God. When we as men or women do not dig into the roots of our lives, we forget about the things of God. We put our purpose in front of God’s purpose, and neglect the life source that produces joy, love, peace, and understanding.

I encourage you as men today to ask yourself, “What is the root to my lust, pride, rebellion, or insecurities?” It is time to search within yourself and find the root so you can see the treasure that you are. God has a plan for each and every one of you. In order for God to show you that plan, He has to trust you. In order for Him to trust you, He has to bring you to a place in Him. In order for you to go to that place with God, He has to start with you. He has to dig deep enough in you until you do not like what you see. Until all the concentration becomes no one, but yourself.

If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it
(Matthew 10:38).
