3 REASONS YOU CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE

An Act of the Will  We are not helpless victims of our circumstances which cause us to do things that are beyond our control. In other words, we have a responsibility to work, raise a family, serve in a church, or any number of things, but we must choose to do these things in the […]

Why Worry When You Can Pray

Don’t give up

I saw this post on facebook for suicide awareness yesterday and it got me thinking as to how quickly we “believe” we have the answer, without considering those around us. I can speak from experience that there is no darker place that being at the bottom of a bottomless dark pit and seeing no way […]

God Doesn’t Leave You in the Dark

“No one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God”(1 Corinthians 2:11b NIV). Have you ever heard someone say, “Well, that’s just your interpretation of the Bible”? It’s as if that little phrase disproves everything that’s been said. But it really doesn’t disprove anything. There are right ways and wrong ways to interpret […]

5 REASONS WE MUST PRAY DAILY

Spiritual Warfare  The Apostle Paul probably dealt with spiritual attacks every day and perhaps this is why he wrote, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” because “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, […]
