I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future and filled with hope.
~~~ Just know that you have been confirmed by God on this day, and He has great plans for your life.
He who is too busy to pray will be too busy to live a holy life. If you choose not to set priorities in your life, then other things and other people will set your priorities for you.
Make a decision today to incorporate prayer everyday, and set your own priorities.
~ Elder Juliette Moore
What a time we had in Atlanta, GA for the 19th Annual Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International Conference! This year’s conference was a little different than years past. This year it was a 6N1 Conference. What is a 6N1 conference you may ask. It was 6 major conferences going on at the same time! Senior Pastors conference was led by Bishop Joseph Walker, Women by Pastor Debra B. Morton, Worship by Overseer William Murphy III, Men by Bishop Herbert Andrew, Young Adults by Overseer Terrance Johnson and Children and Youth by Overseer Christopher Harris. Wow! Major conferences led by dynamic men and women of God.
The night general sessions were led by 3rd Presiding Bishop, Clarence E. McClendon, International Presiding Bishop, Paul S. Morton and Pastor Donald Parsons! We were challenged to have RIDICULOUS faith. It may sound ridiculous, seem ridiculous and even look ridiculous, but out of ridiculous faith, comes ridiculous blessings! The DVD of each night is avaliable for purchase through the Full Gospel website at www.FullGospelConference.org!
Next year, our very own Bishop Edward H. Stephens and the entire Central region will be the host Bishop and region for the 20th International Annual Conference in Louisville, KY, July 3rd-5th. So save the date and come out and show the International Fellowship how the Central regions welcomes their guest and praise the Lord in 2013! We will be CELEBRATING LEGACY and PURSUING DESTINY! See you guys in 2013!
Are you simply listening or are you hearing? There is a vast difference between listening and hearing.
We listen to sounds and noises all the time, and often we are listening without realizing it. We listen to outdoor noises as we go through our typical day and not notice the everyday sounds around us.
We listen to our children calling our names; and yet, at the same time, have the ability to block out the realization that our babies are trying to desperately to get our attention.
At home, while preparing dinner and moving throughout our homes to get the family ready for the evening night, we listen to the television, but yet, are not in tune to what is actually being said by the programmers.
My point here is this . . . we are always listening, but how often are we hearing?
He that has ears, let him hear. Matthew 11:15
When we take time to hear, transformation can take place within our lives. When we hear, we allow what is being said to go deeply within us and become a part of our lives while being embedded within our DNA and conscience. The Holy Spirit is always speaking, but are we always hearing what He is saying?
When you pray, attempt to take time to be quiet and hear from God in order to have a wholesome prayer life so that your prayer life is full. Always strive to make God your “TOP” Priority. Only then will your other priorities be in place.

Wait with hope for the Lord. Be strong and let your heart be courageous. Yes, wait with hope for the Lord.

It is not about an Easter Holiday, but it’s about a risen Savior.
He died for US, and then HE rose for US so that we may have eternal life.
Just remember this weekend, that it isn’t about an Easter Holiday or a bunny rabbit. It’s about Jesus!
It isn’t Easter Weekend, but Resurrection Weekend.
~Elder Juliette Moore
And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” When He said this, He breathed His last. (Luke 23:46)
It’s important that we know that man didn’t take His life; nonetheless, He gave His life. He willingly and obediently laid down His life for you and I. Earthly men did not have the power to hold our Jesus against His will.
He drank from the bitter cup so that we might have LIFE and have LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!!
So let us worship Him for His tender mercies and His loving kindness to lay down His life on an old rugged cross for you and I . . . that we may not be found guilty of sin and held bound to shame.
