Life doesn't always happen as we plan it. Sometimes, God allows circumstances that force us to see the evil in this world and the hope in His salvation. When we become Christians, our values, priorities, and path of life change to fulfill His purpose in our lives. Sometimes, our answers to prayers won't be what … Continue reading His Plan Works
Patience is a Virtue
We live in a world of instant access, high ego, and little patience. Many Christians believe that God should also answer prayers immediately—and their way. But when we answered God's call to salvation, we surrendered to Jesus, our Lord, and must study the Scriptures to know Him, obey His Word, and fulfill that calling.

And when we trust God to take care of … Continue reading Working Together for Good
