Igniting Hearts, Quenching Thirsty Souls

 Isaiah 43:18-20

"Do not earnestly remember the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it, and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The beasts of the field shall honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen."

This booklet addresses your “uniqueness” in how you were created by God and how He furnishes or equips you to fulfill His plan for your life.

Cleaving and Pouring is a two way street.  Every believer needs to pour their heart out to God and to cleave unto Him.  But did you know God cleaves us and wants the results of this to be poured out to the world?

This booklet will help you stay “alive in God” all the days of your life if you will obey it’s instruction.  Learn to “prime the pump” of your spirit man where God lives and be totally refreshed, even during difficult times.
