Will You Just Love?

Sometimes we are so busy judging others, we forget to follow the commands of Jesus and simply show love. I don’t mean we have to love the things others do wrong, but it was never Jesus’ intent for us to shun them, either. While it’s easy to love the loveable, what about those who have […]

Living An Abundant Life

God’s Word tells us that He has come to give us abundant life. (John 10:10 KJV) says The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Many of us see the word “abundance,” and […]

The Importance of Appreciation

Everybody likes being appreciated—even God. The next time you compliment someone or give them a heartfelt thanks, pay attention to how their whole expression and manner change. Everybody likes to be appreciated. It makes us seen, valued, and joyful. Some feel too awkward or embarrassed to show appreciation to others, so they let the moment […]

Whatever You Feed Becomes Stronger

I Chose Love Over Fear

I stayed in a troubled marriage for fifteen years because I was held in bondage by fear. I don’t think I even realized at the time that I was putting everything before God, only giving Him a small piece of my heart. I dreamed of a better life, allowing that dream to consume my thoughts. […]

The Isolation of Social Media

With all the devices and social media sites we have today to help us stay connected, why do so many of us still feel isolated and alone? I have a theory about that! We live in a world where many who post on those sites are quick to report the negative and exploit others’ sorrow […]

God Is Limitless

If you quickly glanced at the title of this blog, I encourage you to take another look. Now, read those three words slowly, this time with more thought and purpose. GOD IS LIMITLESS! No, really, GOD IS LIMITLESS! I’m not sure we can grasp the true scope of God’s love, wisdom, power, grace, and mercy. […]
