The world sees the Bible merely as an old book; Christians know it is the voice of God! We read in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 that men were inspired by God to write the Bible, and in John 14:26, that God's Holy Spirit teaches us His Truth. The world's people will never understand the Bible (1 … Continue reading Shielded by Faith
A Better End
Our first reaction to an unexpected problem is often negative because we think we know what the end result will be. But if we give it to God and TRUST Him with it, we'll see that God may have allowed it to happen to give us a BETTER end result. When we give our burdens … Continue reading A Better End
Life to Our Souls

God's ways … Continue reading Life to Our Souls
How to Walk
The Bible is filled with promises of things God will do for those who love and trust Him. But sometimes, when we encounter problems, it's hard to ignore them (that we DO see) and trust God (who we DON'T see.) So we must study the Bible to know God and His Words for us and … Continue reading How to Walk
God is Faithful
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. In faith, we step into an elevator and trust that it won't fall, and we drive our cars and assume we'll arrive safely. Yet, when it comes to God, many of us have no faith in Him because we don't know … Continue reading God is Faithful
Feeding Our Minds
Our minds are like computers; they take in information and program our responses.

But when we study the Bible to know God and fill up … Continue reading Feeding Our Minds
Learning to Trust Him
Sometimes, we'll ask God to help us with something or give us something, and the answer we get is not what we expected. We get angry that God didn't respond to our wishes, or frustrated that He didn't care, or discouraged that He either didn't hear us or chose not to answer. But God DOES … Continue reading Learning to Trust Him
As Christians, it's easy to talk about God within the church congregation or in small church gatherings. But how many of us talk about God to people outside of the church, to those who don't know Him, to those in stores or at businesses whose obvious mindset is not on our Lord? This is when … Continue reading Not Ashamed!
Who Can You Trust?
In today's world of deception and lies, it's hard to find anyone we can really trust and depend on. However, God is not of this world; He is God Almighty and He does not change.

Our Hope is in the Lord
Life is spiraling so fast into a new way of life that soon we'll look at last year as the good ol' days. God warned us many times in the Scriptures that the things we are facing today would come, AND that they'll get a lot worse. This isn't the time to panic; this is … Continue reading Our Hope is in the Lord
God’s Word is Pure

Jesus Fights for Us
We've reached that time in history when there is an obvious distinction between those who submit to the world and those whose trust is in God alone.

Staying Safe in Unsure Times
One thing that we can seriously depend upon in this ever-changing world is the Word of God. If God said it, then He meant it and He'll do it. And He has promised us that if we follow Him and trust Him in times of trouble, then He will keep us safe. The world around … Continue reading Staying Safe in Unsure Times
When We Know Jesus
When we pray, God hears us because we are His children, redeemed back to Him through Jesus. We know that God will never leave us and that He watches over us and cares for us.

Learning to Trust God
We all know that we need to "cast our cares upon the Lord" but often, praying about something is the easiest part; it's learning to leave our problems with Him that takes discipline. We need to be patient and humble, and trust God to be faithful in His promise to take care of us. God's … Continue reading Learning to Trust God
We know that only God can give us the victory in some particular situations, and our faith in God allows us to hope in Him. But God doesn't always do things the way we think they should be done, or when we think they should be done. We must remember that faith without works is … Continue reading Trusting God
With all the panic and media reports on this Coronavirus, it's easy to get caught up with the hype and worry if we'll be its next victim. We do all that's expected, all that we can do to prevent this attack of the enemy and then we wait quietly in the isolation of our homes … Continue reading Happy Friday!
We are being smothered daily by daunting news of hopelessness as the plagues of disease, economic destruction and climatic change threaten our existence. If we hearken to the news media, we'll lose all hope for living.

When we face trials in this world, we are totally dependant on our own abilities and on those we employ to help us, and our results will never be greater than the probabilities the world has set out.

When Our Faith is Tested
Have you ever noticed how some “Christians” seem to continuously struggle throughout life while others just glide through without any issues? Maybe it’s because some have more faith than others. Perhaps it’s because the others fail the tests of faith and so have to repeat the lessons. Regardless, it seems that our prosperity is all dependent … Continue reading When Our Faith is Tested
Do What You Can do First? Wrong!
We've all heard the expression, "Do what you can do and let God do the rest." Some think that as mature people they should try to deal with their issues and then when all else fails, go to God for help. They think God is pleased with them for trying to solve it themselves. But... this whole way of … Continue reading Do What You Can do First? Wrong!
The Anguish of Disability
Many people suffer from disabilities and some don't realize that their hidden anguish keeps them in a state of resentment.
