Well Done By Tammy Nicole Glover

Someone recently shared a beautiful story about what they witnessed at a young man’s funeral. I was given permission to share this story in the hopes that it would encourage others. Losing a loved one can be one of the most emotionally painful things we can experience. It’s especially painful when it’s someone who is young. However, even in the midst of our pain and sadness, God can turn our mourning into joy because He will use what the devil means for evil and turn it around for our good. This is exactly what happened at this funeral.

It was a young man, twenty-nine years old and he was a believer. He was also a musician and he used his gift to spread the love of God. He tragically passed away in an accident and left behind a young daughter but he also left behind a ministry that touched so many lives that he probably never realized. Just like everyone else, he had setbacks and fell down but he always got back up. He never stopped pressing toward the goal which God called him to. It wasn’t his failures that were remembered but how he got back up and allowed God to work in his life. As the pastor spoke  about how this young man lived his life, God moved and spoke to the hearts of the people in attendance. Although, they were celebrating the life of this young man, God got the glory. At the end, the pastor asked if there was anyone who wanted to give their lives to Jesus Christ and about forty people answered the call. People’s hands raised up as if reaching towards heaven for a Loving and Almighty God that is able to deliver, heal and comfort. A God who is willing to accept them where they are and use them to accomplish great things in this world.

Our lives minister to others whether we realize it or not. this story made me ask the question, what is my life ministering. If I were to leave this world today, would my life inspire anyone to give their life to Christ? Have I truly allowed people to see Christ work through me? The purpose of every believer is to bring as many people to Christ and the main way we do that is the way we live our lives. We should all strive to hear God say, “well done, good and faithful servant.”


FINDING YOUR WHY By Tammy Nicole Glover

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV

Someone recently told me that I should find out the “why” behind my goals and determine if that “why” is a strong enough motivation to follow through with them. This advice came at a time when I was feeling a bit lost and discouraged. I had been putting off a lot of things regarding my writing because things hadn’t been going the way I had hoped. I was starting to lose my passion and become weary. I kept thinking and praying about the advice given to me and I realized that I had lost sight of the “why” behind my writing.

My writing was never supposed to be just a fun hobby. It wasn’t a means to become rich and famous. It wasn’t supposed to be about me at all. Writing was supposed to be a way for me to bring encouragement to the broken-hearted. It was a way to let the lost know that God loves them and that they are never lost to Him. My writing was and always will be meant to glorify God.

I wonder how much farther along I would be if I had treated God’s calling for me with the same seriousness and passion as He does. How many people would I have helped by now if I was diligent in my obedience to Him? It’s not easy to admit when I have missed the mark but I had to do it in order for me to get back on track. Thank God for His mercy. We should never lose sight of our purpose. God has given us all so many gifts and talents. They’re not just for our benefit but for the benefit of others.

“Do not neglect your gift.” 1 Timothy 4:14 NIV


My neighbor isn’t the person that lives next door or down the street. My neighbor is every single person on this planet.  Yes, I am my brother’s and my sister’s keeper.

Yesterday, we celebrated the life of Rev. Dr. Marin Luther King, Jr. He envisioned a world where children of all colors would be able to sit next to each other in love. Although, today segregation is illegal in our country, it feels as if our country and our world is more divided than ever. The world feels infested with hate. It breaks my heart to know that so many good people died in order for all people, no matter what color or gender, could live in peace and pursue happiness. Yet, instead of moving towards that goal, we are moving backwards. We as human beings were called to love one another. It doesn’t matter what the other person looks like, what they believe or even if they love us back. Loving thy neighbor isn’t always easy but it’s necessary in order for our world to not fall into chaos and destruction.

There is still hope among all of the darkness and it’s inside of each one of us. Maybe if we stop looking at love as just a feeling but as a decision to treat someone with kindness and compassion, we can take a step out of the darkness and into the light.

“Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:39 NIV

Be the Blessing

Take a deep breath. Feel the air fill your lungs. That feeling means God still has plans for you. They are not plans to hurt but to give you hope, a future and to prosper you. Now exhale. Quitting is not an option. There is too much work for you to do and the air in your lungs is evidence of that. In honor of all of those who no longer have breath, be the blessing that they can’t be. The world needs you.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV

A Christmas Message

Lift your eyes up to the sky, for a Savior has come. His glory, righteousness and might are unmatched, yet His yoke is gentle and light. He came so that we might have life more abundantly. He willingly laid down His life and endured the punishment that was meant for us. His stripes allowed us to be healed and whole. His blood cleanses us of all our sins. He is the ultimate gift.

Tis the season to be jolly but not because of twinkling lights or Santa Claus. We have joy because we have the Savior, Jesus Christ. Let us not get caught up in arguments that distract us from the truth. Now is the time to remember the true reason for this season. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. That Son is Jesus Christ and through Him we have forgiveness, salvation and deliverance. May we always remember and give praise.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.” Isaiah 9: 6-7 NIV



Give Thanks

In all things give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and merciful. He provides for all our needs. He is the Author of our story, with a breathtaking ending written for us.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 NIV

The Master Is At Work

Have patience while the Master is at work. Masterpieces take time and you are one of God’s masterpieces. Don’t fall into the trap of frustration during the process. Stay in expectancy for the beauty that God is about to reveal in your life.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV
