    Breaking Through to the Blessed Life

    And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. NKJV

    • What if God does have unclaimed blessings waiting for us?

    • What if all we have to do is ask for them?

    • What if God wants to work through us in supernatural ways? What if all we have to do is be willing to show up in our weakness?

    "He Went to the Answering Place"

    Laurie Beth Jones, "Jesus in Blue Jeans"

    Many of us act on information without having carefully pondering it. “Zeal is not good where reflection is wanting, He who goes too quickly misses His way” Proverbs 19:2. It’s good to take time apart and get quiet, and listen for answers as we make decisions that affect the lives of others. Where in your life are you acting on “information” without seeking “answers”?

    Guest Moderator: Dr. Cassie Barlow, President, Strategic Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE). Formerly the 88th ABW Commander, WPAFB.
