Life equals struggle but….

We all struggle in our daily lives at some point, but can we do anything about it? The people in marketing and finance say that we have to build up our portfolio and we will be financially secure. The so-called gurus on television or those who write self-help books point you toward believing in yourself […]

Crossroad for hypocrites

“Thus says the LORD: ‘Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies: and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.’” Jeremiah 6:16-17 We are at a crossroad where our community meets and goes separate ways and yet also comes together as friends and family.

The fields are ripe unto harvest…

Those who are coming to Christ, especially those in countries which persecute and kill Christians, need our prayers more than ever. We may not be able to bring them out of the situation that they are in, but He is able to strengthen them and carry them to their reward in Heaven. Yes, our lives […]

Blue, down or depressed..which is it?
