Make this song your battle cry!


Our God Reigns ~ John Waller

Spirit of death you have no place here
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
Spirit of fear you have no place here
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
You're not welcome here so go, just go

Spirit of death you have no place here
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
Envy and jealousy you have no place here
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
Go back from whence you came

'Cause our God reigns here, our God reigns here
We claim this ground in Jesus' name
'Cause our God reigns

Our God reigns here, our God reigns here
The battle's won, have no fear
'Cause God reigns here, He reigns here our God

Anger and rage, guilt and shame
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
Depression, anxiety, addiction, infirmity
I command you to leave in Jesus' name
Oh, go back from whence you came

'Cause our God reigns here, our God reigns here
We claim this ground in Jesus' name
'Cause our God reigns

Our God reigns here, our God reigns here
The battle's won, have no fear
'Cause God reigns here

There's no doubt He has overcome the world
And God reigns here
There's no doubt He has overcome the world

'Cause our God reigns here, our God reigns here
We claim this ground in Jesus' name
'Cause our God reigns

Our God reigns here, our God reigns here
The battle's won, have no fear
The battle's won, have no fear
The battle's won, have no fear
'Cause God reigns here

There's no doubt He has overcome the world
And God reigns here
There's no doubt He has overcome the world
And our God reigns

WTAL 52 Days of Pecking Orders ~ Day 24


Day 24
With the estimated 7 billion people on the planet and the ability to be on the other side of the world in less than a day, it would be incorrect in saying there’s nothing new to discover. Sadly, many of us think just that!

God’s EXPOSURE requires us to leave behind what’s comfortable to embark upon the uncertainty of the unfamiliar.

As you move toward your goal, you will encounter the unknown. God uses EXPOSURE as the practice arena for the newness and uncertainty you will experience in your future.

It’s best to learn the lesson of being comfortable in uncertainty now, than having to learn it later.

WTAL 52 Days of Pecking Orders ~ Day 23

Tuesday, October 30, 2012


Day 23
So many of us remain trapped in the shell of the familiar, never venturing out to see different locations, eat new foods or even hear music we’re not accustomed to. Then, we wonder why we never progress further in life.

EXPOSURE is a choice!

Do you choose to hold on to the familiarity of what you’ve always experienced, or will you take a chance on something new and vibrant?

This may cause you to be nervous, but it greatly enriches your life experience. God has more for you than your current surroundings!

Take COURAGE and step out on faith to see and experience more!

Day 22
The favor that God has placed on your life will cause you to be liked by people you can’t even imagine. They will be intelligent, influential and have wisdom to share with you on your journey.

This requires that you EXPOSE yourself to more than just your familiar surroundings.

These new “things” and new people God is sending your way may operate on a higher level than what you are accustomed to. Get comfortable trying new things and going new places. You’ll be glad you did!

Keep pecking…

Day 21
As you continue to go forth with your Pecking Orders, I encourage you to broaden your interests, people and hobbies.... they broaden your perspective and outlook.

Don’t just build spiritually, but build on the foundation of your spiritual life.

It could be as simple as reading different magazines or newspapers, or going to places that are different from where you normally go. Get outside of your political belief system, gender or race.

Broader views are a great repellent to ignorance. A complete world-view leads to a richer, fuller life.

Greatest Conflict; Greatest Confidence

Day 20
BEFORE you can fully lead, you must withstand controversy and conflict.

a. Leaders tend to be controversial.
b. Leaders’ decisions create conflict.
c. Leaders are persons of commitment.
d. Leaders are guided by their character.

Be COURAGEOUS and accept the leadership responsibility of being controversial. You are not POSITIONED to make everyone like you! That’s God’s job. It’s called FAVOR…and…It ain’t fair!

Day 19
Some things need to be put back where they belong.

Translated: some relationships simply need to be severed! Others may require some closure for you to move on. Still, others need to be put back in their proper place.

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed” (Amos 3:3)?

Pray this prayer with me: Holy Spirit, please clean out my heart, make over my soul, and allow me to get rid of the accumulated things and people that diminish me as an individual, as an employee, or as a visionary. In Jesus name, Amen!

10 Simple Ways to Use Your Expert Knowledge

Thursday, October 25, 2012

The answer is YES. You are an expert and you need to recognize that. We get caught up in looking at the areas that we need to improve and don’t see what is right in front of us. This is the “grass is always greener” concept and for us as entrepreneurs, it is also the “shiny object” syndrome”. I mistakenly think I need what you HAVE or what you KNOW in order to succeed. Well that at GARBAGE!! You have knowledge, training, skills, education, and life experiences. Stop talking and start doing. Use what God has given you.

What is an expert? According to the FreeDictionary.com an expert is a person with a high degree of skill in or knowledge of a certain subject.

Here are 10 simple ways to use your expert knowledge to build your business:

1.  Speak it. This could be on a stage of 50 or 500. This might be at a networking event where you have 30 seconds to introduce yourself. Or this could be in a group of 5 women which is one of the ways I got started. When I moved to Wichita Falls, TX in 2006, I found the networking scene to need a little help, so I connected with 2 other women and we started our own Women’s Networking Lunch. I had only been here for 3 months and it worked, one person invited another and so on. We have been going for 6 years now. Be willing to step out and do something new.

2.  Write it. This could be in your weekly blog, your ebook, your newsletter, or your book. Get your message out, share your journey, tell your story, give your perspective and then get that written word out to all people you come in contact with.

3.  Teach it. This could be to one other person sitting across from you at Starbucks or could be to the masses on a live webcast. This could be “how to train a dog”, “ways to increase your confidence”, or “how to create a hand-stamped necklace”. Teach your followers how you “do what you do”.

4.  Duplicate it. This could be the manual you create on success tips that can be taught to 10 people on a group tele-course instead of meeting with one person. Figure out ways to reach more people by increasing the number of people that you can share your information with virtually. Allow them to listen when they can or to go at their own pace. This is exactly what we do at the National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs with all of our calls and webinars recorded and archived for the past 2.5 years.

5.  Broadcast it. This might be on the free online radio show that you create. I found out about BlogTalkRadio in 2008 and got started right away featuring other coaches and clients. Find your voice and share online with a live broadcast. Go check out all of my archived and current interviews at www.inspiredwomenradio.com.

6.  Record it. This could be on your very own TV network such as Youtube or Vimeo. I now have over 100 videos and adding more each week. Don’t worry, it gets easier the more practice you have. (If you don’t believe me, go see some of my earlier recordings.) I have someone come and help me to record my videos and I often record 6 in a 60 minute period now of short tutorials and inspirational messages. Check it out at www.inspiredwomentv.com

7.  Share it. This could be you being interviewed for a local newspaper or by a colleague on their radio show. Say Yes to any and all features and interviews that can get you in front of a new group or crowd. Share your message.

8.  Post it. This is our fabulous free friend social media. Post your expert info, tweet your knowledge tips, link your words of wisdom and pin your visual images that help us to understand it all! Link your expert info back to your blog and/or website so you can get me to come over and visit you there.

9.  Sell it. Take any of these ways that I have just listed and make it into a product. Record the interview and sell it. Write the ebook and bundle that for sale along with a video tutorial. Teach the class as an online workshop.

10.  Be it. Remember that you are YOU and God has given you a unique set of gifts, experiences, knowledge that no one else has. Trust Him and allow his plan to unfold. Be willing to be vulnerable. You will end up being an expert in things that you did not ever anticipate as a part of your life journey. I can now claim that I am an expert in divorce survival, infertility, lawsuit, plane crash survival, and more. Share your story. Be YOU!

The bottom line is……DO IT. Look at this list of 10 and figure out ways to do it (share your expert information) that works for you, and you go from there. It won’t be perfect. Get it out there anyway. If I am not an expert in your topic, how would I ever know?

Find a way to move out of the past, move ahead, free from all encumbrances that threaten to leave you attached to your yesterday. Do not let the dead weight of old cycles impede your progress!

Day 17
BEFORE you can see the beauty of the surroundings in which God has POSITIONED you, you must remove the clutter! God is a God of order!

“God is not the author of confusion, but of peace” (1 Cor. 14:33).

Though confusion does not stop God from working, it does stop YOU!

The removal of unneeded items can reveal the beauty, functionality and lovely features of God’s creation, your possessions, and even your spirit.

It’s time to clean house…physically, spiritually and mentally!

Don't Give Up on Love, Men and Marriage

Desiring a "Happily Ever After"
Fighting the Temptation to Give Up on Love and Marriage

By Sheri Rose Shepherd
Bestselling Author and Bible Life Coach

I don't know where you stand today with the man you love or loved—or if you are single, divorced, separated, or widowed. I can tell you, though, that if you've been hurt, you can be sure Your heavenly Father knows how hard it is to love and forgive the one who caused you pain. Yet regardless of the relational devastation you face, no one can keep you from finishing strong for God's glory!

I was raised in a non-Christian home. My parents have each been married and divorced to three different people. As part of several blended families, all I understood about marriage when I was growing up was "unhappily ever after." But then I became a Christian at twenty-four and married my husband, Steve, just a few years later. Because of my love for God and my husband, I honestly didn't think anything could shake my own marriage or faith.

In the summer of 2007, however, my happily ever after was wiped out and my faith was tested. The family foundation I had worked so hard to build and protect was almost destroyed, along with my ministry, in that season of my life. I truly believed that God had forsaken me.

I had just finished writing my book for mothers about raising sons to become godly husbands. As I excitedly ran upstairs to e-mail the manuscript to the publisher, I suddenly felt as if something dark hovered over me. My passion for the book's message was drowned out by the fear of an attack from the enemy that could come against me and my family if I stepped on his territory . . . young men and their future marriages.

I called the publisher and said I'd need to wait and pray for courage before submitting the manuscript. I went to my son, Jake, who was eighteen years old and a senior in high school at the time, and asked him if he had any plans of rebelling against his faith once he graduated from high school. I told him I was willing to give him freedom to find his own faith in Christ, but I didn't want to put out a book about raising boys if my own son was going to walk away from the Lord. He reassured me that he was strong in his faith and that he felt I should publish the book. I decided to take the chance to make a difference and sent in the manuscript.

The book began climbing the charts, and everything seemed to be going well. I even began speaking with my son at conferences for mothers of boys. Then three months into my book tour, my fear of attack hit. My husband had taken a job that we had both prayed for. This job appeared to be a blessing; however, his new position required him to violate some of the boundaries we had put in place to protect our marriage, and we ended up separated.

There I was in the public eye of ministry, fighting to save future marriages, and somehow my own marriage was falling apart. My son was devastated by the division between me and his dad. It was too hard for him to deal with all his confusion, pain, and anger, so he took a break from his faith and began using drugs and alcohol to comfort himself. I had always known to run to God for cover when there was a great attack, but now I felt like He had left me alone on the battlefield to fight for myself. It appeared that all I had believed about God and all my effort to build a strong foundation for my own family had been shattered. My pain, my shame, and my life were an embarrassment. I felt as if I were battling an out-of-control fire that would burn up everything I loved and lived for. Every night I would cry myself to sleep as I struggled to understand why God had not protected me while I was attempting to accomplish something for His glory.

One night I could not take it anymore, so I fell to my knees and told God I either wanted Him to fix my family or I wanted to quit the ministry. Then I felt the Lord asking me a bigger question: Was My life, given on a cross for you, not enough for you to finish strong even if it means surrendering the life you wanted? For the first time I realized that my heart's true desire was to feel loved and secure, and yet no man on earth could love me the way my Lord does. In that moment of crisis I found the true meaning of following Christ. God had not forsaken me, but He did want to free me from depending on others to give me my happily ever after.

That night I gave my heart's deepest desire to God and chose to follow Him at any cost. In exchange, He gave me something so much better; He gave me peace that was more powerful than my circumstances. My faith was no longer in people; it was in Christ alone. Although nothing outwardly had changed yet, I had been changed. Today, Steve and I have celebrated twenty-five years of marriage, and our son serves God with His whole heart. He and his bride have given us our first grandbaby girl. However, to be honest, restoring our marriage was excruciatingly painful and more difficult than either of us expected. As hard as this trial was, it taught me a valuable lesson: our Lord is the God of comfort and the author of a new beginning. He can and will rebuild a beautiful life out of any broken heart willing to make a change. He will use one sacrificial choice; one act of forgiveness; one sincere, repentant heart; and one woman who is willing to step out in faith and start rebuilding with His love for His glory.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 
~ Psalm 121:1-2

Faith, Hunger and Jesus ~ End Global Hunger


Faith, Hunger and Jesus
Churches Can Help Bring End to Global Hunger

In his book, The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community On the Brink of Change (Public Affairs Books, 2012) award-winning author and global hunger activist Roger Thurow explores the annual plight of the hunger season, chronicling the profound challenges faced by four Kenyan farmers as they endeavor to escape the poverty to which time-worn and traditional planting methods have held them bound. With the assistance of a social enterprise called One Acre Fund that offers financing for quality seeds, fertilizers, tools and training, the farmers view the year as an exodus that will lift them from the Egypt of misery into the Canaan land of milk and honey.

Oddly enough, the plight of Africa’s hungry is a topic Thurow never considered until a few short years ago. For the bulk of his writing career, he was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, two thirds of that time spent as a foreign correspondent in Europe and Africa. “Up until about ten years ago,” he explains, “I hadn’t really done much reporting on hunger issues. Hunger was a kind of background noise until the Ethiopian famine in 2003. On my first day in Ethiopia, I was meeting with the World Food Program to get background information and was given a piece of advice – a warning of sorts – that changed my life. I was told that ‘looking into the eyes of someone dying of hunger becomes a disease of the soul.’”

The next day, as Thurow entered into the hunger zone for the first time and began looking into the eyes of those who were dying, the real meaning of that warning hit home. “I began to ask questions - wanting to know why this was happening ––how this was happening — in the twenty-first century,” he recalls, “and suddenly all other stories began paling in comparison. It wasn’t just what I was seeing all around me, but the things and the beliefs I had grown up with, the memories from my childhood when I was taught that Jesus expected us to feed the hungry and care for the afflicted.

In The Last Hunger Season, Thurow exposes us to the daily drama of these farmers’ lives, allowing us to witness the development of the solution to a looming global challenge. If these four farmers and the others like them succeed, it is quite possible that so will we all.

To learn more about The Last Hunger Season 
and the documentary film it inspired,
The ONE Campaign with Roger Thurow produced a series of materials to help guide Churches through issues surrounding hunger in Africa (the paradox of the 'hungry farmer', food aid, agricultural development for smallholder farmers, etc.) and the implications this has for people of faith. These materials are for churches that want to devote a service to the issue (bulletin inserts, sermon starters, suggested hymns, children's activities) as well as a 6 week, in-depth guide accompanying the book, 'The Last Hunger Season', suitable for an adult-led class or small group. Incorporating biblical texts and principles as well as elements from the up-coming documentary, the guide is designed to encourage discussion and to deepen the participants understanding of how these issues are directly relevant to each of us. For more information contact rebecca@claphamgroup.com

We need you to be a part of the solution!

In this new season, God will EXPOSE you to brand new things and people. However, do not get caught up in looking at the outside of a person, relationship or situation! These things do not always reflect what is on the inside.

Jesus said about the Pharisees that “outside” they were clean, but “inside” they were full of dead men’s bones (Matthew 23:27).

With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book will help you dig deeper into what Christian community in the twenty-first century should look like.

Before anything will change, you must decide YOU want to change! You must decide to yield to God’s will and allow Him to POSITION you where you need to be before the next shifting occurs!

But, change is not easy. It requires COURAGE! In the terrifying, soul-tingling feelings of the vertigo of change, we learn the value of faith and the fuel of prayer.

Day 13
Don’t stop PECKING!

Instead of feeling battered, choose to have the faith that you can rebuild your life!

Philippians 4:13 (NKJV) gives us a reminder that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.

Do not yield power over your life to others in the process of releasing the trauma of your past.

“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old” (Isaiah 43:18 KJV).

Tenaciously gather what power is within your reach and rebuild your life, no matter how battered you might feel by circumstances.

Get ready for POSITIONING, EXPOSURE, COURAGE and KNOWLEDGE!

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Spiritual Warfare for Women: Winning the Battle for Your Home, Family and Friends'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Evil is real, and Christian women know it. While most books on the topic of spiritual warfare take a charismatic approach, Spiritual Warfare for Women aims directly at the center of the evangelical market, giving instruction and assurance to all women who want to protect themselves and the ones they love. McCoy provides spiritual wisdom and practical tips on identifying the enemy's strategies, overcoming fear, and exercising the power that comes from God. The book is structured around the battle between God's love and Satan's lies. Once a woman can embrace the first and reject the second, she is well on her way to victory.
