Who is responsible for our walk with God?

“There is no doubt about it; God holds our lives safely in His hands. He’s the One who keeps us faithfully following Him.” Psalm 66:9 Have you been a believer for quite some time and find yourself almost drained from trying to follow the Lord? Do you find yourself drawing away from the Lord or activities… Continue reading Who is responsible for our walk with God?

In the time of your deepest feelings…Jesus knows how you feel.

There is one instance when Jesus asked His disciples for comfort, for friendship, and for support. It’s found in Matthew 26, Luke 22 and Mark 14.

Need guidance? God’s Rumble Strips

You are of great value to God!

Matthew 13 holds many parables that Jesus spoke to the multitudes. His purpose was to draw those to Him who had ears to hear and eyes to see. I was reading Mt 13 recently and two of the parables about the kingdom of heaven jumped out at me. The first is: “The kingdom of heaven is… Continue reading You are of great value to God!
