A Thankful Heart

I once went to church with a lady, who during service would stand up and give thanks to God for allowing her to see another day.

In His Presence

There are days, when regardless of the circumstances of life, you feel God’s loving embrace.

In Acts 13:22, we’re told that David was a man after God’s own heart. You wonder, “Is this how David felt?”  You consider… “What is […]

The Echoes of Our Actions

We’ve often been told—think before you speak—and it’s not always a good idea to speak all that you think.

Struggling with Temptation

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.~James 1:3 Temptation is an attraction for… or a desire to do something—especially something wrong or unwise. No one can say… they have never been tempted. Biblically speaking, 1 John 1:8-9 tells us that when we say… we have no iniquity—we deceive ourselves. Yet, when we confess our sins, God is faithful […]

The Nails of Jesus Christ

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
