on May 16th, 2023

However, the clinging to the dust never goes far enough, or right enough, and when left there with it, knowingly or not, we diminish. Sometimes it’s pleasant enough, for a season, and sometimes not. In eternity, it falls short. Feelin’ dus... Read More

LIKE TOSSING A ONE-SIDED COIN!
on May 12th, 2023
SCRIPTURE: “For if anyone is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in the mirror; for once he has looked at himself and then has gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.

Your Will Be Done
on May 9th, 2023
SCRIPTURE: "Now this is the confidence we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." 1 John 5:14 (NKJV) Disregarding today’s title verse, I suspect, has led more souls to be disappointed with God than you or I can identify. This verse was never given by the Spirit to serve as a blank spiritual check for very earthly desire we’ve ever had. The practice of framing God... Read More
