I truly believe The Lord has called us to do extraordinary things in this world.  Not so that we can walk around like we are all that, but to let others know about the power of the God we serve. In Matthew 14:22-33 we have the account when Jesus walked ... Continue

We Are Blessed!

In John 20:24-29 we read how the resurrected Christ appeared to His disciples. This was a time to rejoice for them, except for Thomas.  Why? Because, he was not there when Jesus came. When he saw them rejoicing, he did not believe it was true, because he did not see ... Continue

In Jeremiah 17:5 - 8 we read about how it's important to trust in The Lord and not in people.  I know we are holy now and trust in The Lord, but there was a time we didn't.  In verses 5 and 6 Jeremiah is telling us the danger of ... Continue

David wrote in Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning".  He is letting us know we all deal with situations that will cause us to weep.  I find it interesting that he associated weeping with night.  When we are going through a rough ... Continue
