God wrecked 'em! Go God, go!

I love scaring the devil out of his stupid mind!!!

He's furious right now at what happened in some women's lives last night.  There's nothing like women, forever changed and transformed and filled with the power of God -- ready to change the world!  

We still have one last session this morning...I'm getting ready to lead in one last session which will be a communion service,  and there's not a lot of time for me to blog, and besides all that I'm running on five hours sleep.  :)  But, I feel so energized by the spirit of God.  I'm not even on what I call my "holy ghost hangover" yet.  I'm still high.   We're leaving here with EVERY SINGLE WOMAN FILLED, OR RE-FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST!!!  Many were already actively utilizing this precious gift in their daily lives, and are simply leaving refreshed and recharged, but others are ignited with fresh fire and some with that fire for the first time in their lives.

Last night I spoke to them about living a life continually filled with the spirit of God, flowing in the gifts God has given us, and calling upon this power DAILY to help us and empower in every single area of our lives.  Also utilizing it for it's most intended purpose -- (not just our edification but to be HIS WITNESSES to the uttermost parts of the earth.)  Many people can sit in a Pentecostal church all their lives and never really be pentecostals.  (You can sit in Burger King all day...it won't make you a whopper...)  As long as my husband and I are pastoring Celebration I can guarantee it will be a thorougly Pentecostal church with the gifts of the spirit in operation and opportunities for people to receive the Holy Ghost and flow in ALL of the gifts.  I'll be pentecostal not just on paper (a doctrinal statement) but in lifestyle and practice til' my last breath (and then I'll pick up where I left off once I get to heaven...lol...but it's up to the people to step up and receive ALL God has for them.  And you know you can just attend but never truly take hold of all that God has available for you.  Well last night these women TOOK HOLD!!!   God wrecked 'em, and they just allowed Him to be God here in this house and do what He wanted to do. 

Pursuing life in the spirit is not an option in CC Life Coaching...it's what they sign up for and they know it when they become a part.  Last night the power of God came into this place with a great demontration os His power and I know it's just the beginning.  Some people's families are going to wonder what in the world happened to them when they come home...absolutely high as a kite...forever ruined for the ordinary by the spirit of the God!

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it.


Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best.

Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment thread no…

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real."

After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just keeping …
