I wasn’t sure what to title this post, but allow me to ramble about the topic of purpose. God made us to have purpose in this life and in the life to come. So it’s natural for us all to desire purpose. Everyone wants to be needed and feel like they are contributing in their… Continue reading Talking about purpose…
“Lord, your name is so great and powerful! People everywhere see your splendor. Your glorious majesty streams from the heavens, filling the earth with the fame of your name! You have built a stronghold by the songs of babies. Strength rises up with the chorus of singing children. This kind of praise has the power… Continue reading What is praise and worship?
I have run across many people asking about who Jesus is and I wanted to write out the core of the gospel! Jesus – all that He is is hard to contain in just our human language. He is God – the Son in the trinity of Father, Son, and Spirit. He came to fulfill… Continue reading Tell me about Jesus
Romans 8:28 states: “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” It struck me that this verse has become the catch-all verse when things don’t go right, hence it’s taken on a negative connotation.

So man is created on the 6th… Continue reading What is Sabbath rest?

I find that if I’m too familiar with something, reading it in another… Continue reading Shameless impudence prayer!
With the entrance of a new year (2018) I wanted to share a fresh insight into those prayers you don’t pray anymore…those prayers that have long been pushed under the carpet because you’ve prayed them for so long without seeing any answer to them. We all have them, well, at least I do. We have… Continue reading Prayers you don’t pray anymore…
“I have loved you, just as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love.” John 15:9 I was reading through John 15 – what is usually called the upper room discourse – spoken to the disciples by Jesus just before He was betrayed and crucified. When I read verse 9 I just stopped for… Continue reading The Father’s love for you!
With everything going on in the world today once only has to listen to a few minutes of any newscast and they will find fear entering their hearts. Truly, if we aren’t careful over that which we watch and listen to, fear will get a grip on us. Allow me to share some of the… Continue reading Peace in the midst of our storms
