“holding fast the word of life.” Philippian 2:16 nkjv Hold on. “God, move this mountain and fill my bank account.” That is what many of our prayers sound like. We may not say those exact words, but we say similar things. The verse I quoted above about “holding on to […]
Finding Contentment Through Christ: Insights from the Scriptures
How much do we trust Christ? Do we know that God will take care of us? How are you treating others? Are you pushing people aside to get ahead, or are you laying your life down knowing that God will take care of you? Life is not about what you can take for yourself.
Rest For Your Soul
Trust the Lord’s, unfailing love. He will never leave nor forsake you. It’s a call to trust even in the difficulties of life.
Demanding Our Attention
There’s a better way. We know this, but that path is soon lost to the day’s demands. You get busy. You are pulled to care for things. It’s the morning, and you have a full day ahead. You sit for a moment, but then the demands of life start competing […]

“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, snd instead of the brier shall […]
The Light of Man and a Watered Garden
This is what I want, what about you? A beautiful watered garden. It all started with a garden when God spoke, and it will end in a garden, or should I say of that day, it will be the beginning of all beginnings.
A Man, A Pool and Me
We may be left to fill in the blanks because the stories become our stories. We are the ones now to get up and tell the rest of the story. It’s our turn to get up against the odds.

How To Flourish In Life
