You Can’t Win Them All

We can’t win every time. Even the best don’t always come in first. And God doesn’t answer our prayers the way that we want him to. The fact is, God is in control. And sometimes the best that we can do is the best that we can do. The rest we need to leave to

Turner Syndrome – Getting A New Heart Beat

My 3-year old niece just went through open heart surgery. Scary. They cracked her chest wide open, pumped all of her blood through a machine while her heart was being fixed, stitched her chest back up with 6 wires that reconnect her breastplate back together, and started her heart back pumping again.

The Problem With A Lukewarm Drink

Water is absolutely essential that we get water in our bodies to stay alive. It is both refreshing and life giving. But there are two kinds of drinks that really satisfy – an ice cool drink on a smoldering hot day, and a hot cup of coffee or on a bitter cold winter morning. Not

This is easy to understand when we apply this to sports. A sports team with only one or two people will never stand a chance to

Growing Our Faith Starts At Home

God tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. But we are also called to protect our families and our home from bad influences and attacks of the enemy. So how do we accomplish this balance of protecting ourselves from harm, but loving others throughout the process? It is a very fine line, but something

Call To God, and He Will Answer Us

Does God hear our prayers? Does He answer us? How do we know? When can we expect He will answer?  Scripture: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” – Jeremiah 33:3 Observation/Application:  Sometimes it may seem like God isn’t listening, and that our prayers

Some People Are Just Hard To Love

We love others not because they love us back, but because God loves us all. Our love is mature when we live like Christ, and love like Christ. We can know that our love is mature when we love everyone. That means that we can also love the unlovable. This, my friends, is a tall
