Who Can I Trust?

“My soul finds rest in God alone. He alone is my rock.” Psalm 62:1 Fidelity. Security. Trust.  It’s no surprise that many institutions through which we invest millions of dollars have names signifying certainty or confidence. Why would we allow … Continue reading

Sincere Smile

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but harsh words cause quarrels.” Proverbs 15:1 Carol was a defiant woman.  Pride was her armor.  And anger was her companion.  She was a political activist.  She actually enjoyed wielding her fury. People cowered … Continue reading

Broken but Made Beautiful

It would seem to me that we are all in the potter’s house being shaped and molded.  God holds us in his hand and molds us through the different experiences in life.  Sometime he makes little changes and other times he fills the cracks and closes them up. Continue reading

Abba, Father: Thought: Picture yourself, no matter your age, crawling on Abba’s lap to receive His comfort, love and guidance. It’s okay. None of us are ever too old or self-efficient to not need that! Continue reading

It’s All about Control

Father, it is my prayer that You will infuse those that are struggling in this area with inner strength. Your Word declares that You are a perfect help in the time of trouble.

Heal the root issues that keep bringing them back to this response. Open the eyes of their understanding today, In Jesus name Amen. Continue reading

But How Does it End?

Sitting on the Fence

“Chose you this day, whom you will serve” Joshua 24:15 “I have decided that sitting on the fence is not a God thing,” I told my family. In real life everyday situations, much evil has continued because people are afraid … Continue reading
