    The Journey North From Marseilles

    My father, the rabbi, likes to pass different books to me to read, or at least consider. As I left after lunch yesterday he passed me a book called 'Jerusalem:the biography' by a British Jew named Simon Sebag Montefiore. It is an intriguing volume, and I have already read eighty...

    I was lost. I couldn't find my way back to God.

    I used to do lot of bad things, I was involved into an addiction. To cut the long story short I decided to be a good person. I started to pray again, it's been a while since I last practiced my addiction, but I feel weak, I don't wanna fall again, I did a good job and I felt God...

    Here is another [short] devotion.

    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...

    I read a post earlier this morning

    and it broke my heart. Let me explain. If I understood it correctly according to the author God is powerless to intervene in our lives. God is in control in all the circumstances of our lives no matter how it looks to our five senses. Nothing and no one can overtake God! He...

    I saw the movie about the tsunami in Japan.

    And Sees What We Do Not

    The only reason people have trouble believing God is in control is because they cannot see from His perspective! I am not claiming to see what God sees, but I am aware of the nature of God to an extent - I know that he can see where these events are leading us...
