God’s Word Provides Comfort

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who…

What Do You Want?

a million bucks? a brand new car? better health? How about, plain & simple…some genuine happiness? After being penned up in a hotel room for months on end with 3 kids, husband, luggage, laundry, homework, backpacks, jackets, sports equipment, toaster, blender, snacks and who-knows-what-else…

STUPID? YOU DECIDE

Funny how God stretches you in the unimaginable. To great lengths you never knew you could withstand, like a rubber band. I could not perceive what He was up to…but I could feel some work being done within.
