    scripture Reading: For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, bit of power, of love and of self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7). Thought For The Day: Power, love and self-discipline-these ARE available to us because the Holy Spirit lives in us. May years ago the only Bible I...

    More Than Ever

    With all the weather events occuring in the US and all that's going on around the world, I am more convinced than ever that God is in full and complete control of everything. That gives me great comfort.

    My husband told me that there was a news story

    about a baby who fell eleven stories and lived. It goes to show that our God is a powerful God! It shows that He IS in control of all the situations of our lives! Look around and see the hand of God at work in our world and in our lives and in the lives of those we love and...

    I am on a journey. I came from a dark place,

    my life was full of **** and lust. It took a shattering event for me to accept my weakness and change. I am only 100 days into my new life. I know God is in control. I am not perfect but understanding more everyday on how I should act in Gods eyes.

    I read a post earlier this morning
