Life can be so hard when you don’t know who you are…

Life can be so hard if you don’t know who you are…. (A guest post from Ben Jaggers) We have so many choices and so many people telling us who to be or how to act. I wasn’t sure who I was when I was younger. I am sure this is a problem that manyContinue reading “Life can be so hard when you don’t know who you are…”

I see the effect of those who do this, don’t you?

The Apostle Paul said, “Meditate on these things, give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.” (I Tim 4:15) Slow down.Sit still.Clear your mind. Give yourself ENTIRELY to thinking about the things of God. Well, I’ll just check my phone first. I probably should throw in a load of laundry.Continue reading “I see the effect of those who do this, don’t you?”

He tells Nebuchadnezzar that the dream and its meaning had been revealed to him by God. (Daniel 2:27-49) Before we talk about the dream itself, let’s think about Nebuchadnezzar’s reaction. NebuchadnezzarContinue reading ““My god” always agrees with me”

The mocking voices still can’t control the King!

Jesus did what He said He would do.Jesus will do what He says He will do. And the mocking voices of this world still can’t control Him! Just as Jesus said, Judas betrays Him, and Peter denies Him. Christ is beaten, mocked and tried by the religious leaders and then sent to Pilate. (Luke22:47-71) FindingContinue reading “The mocking voices still can’t control the King!”
