When We Need To Be Reminded Of The Personal Relationship With Our Heavenly Father

Sometimes when I just want familiarity I put aside the shiny new things and reach for the old torn worn and written upon.

I Believe; Help My Unbelief

Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:24 This verse keeps going through my mind lately.

Love Deeply

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal." 1Corinthians 13:1 I'm sure we have all come across people that have knowledge and they even act upon that knowledge. They help the needy and the poor. They know the laws… Continue reading Love Deeply

The Uncontainable God

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man...Acts 17:24 Uncontainable. The attribute I find the most comforting is this, His omnipresence.
