Drawing Closer To The Lord Through Fasting

Keto diet. It’s the new craze. There is a new diet created about every 6-12 months that seems to take center stage and get everyone’s attention. Before that it was the Paleo diet. I even remember a long time ago there was the grapefruit juice diet. Another trend I notice is that people are fasting

Letting Our Best Shine

Too many times in life we get stressed, anxious, confused, and the world seems to get the best of us. It feels like we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. And during these times our best doesn’t always shine through. But that is not how we were meant to live. We

Ask, Seek, And Knock

As we talked about yesterday, as Christians we have the ultimate freedom. But do we also realize with God we have the ultimate Provider?
