    God, At Least My God, is

    God, at least MY God, IS at the center of my life.  Sadly, I think people confuse God with religion.  I may worship the Judeo-Christian God, but that doesn't mean I worship the church :)

    When Peter Looked Away

    This group has me thinking about Peter. He was walking across the water because Jesus had called him, the moment he took his eye's off Christ he began to sink. Think about it as long as we keep God in the center of our life He keeps us from sinking.

    When you are going through something hard

    and wonder where God is remember the teacher is always quiet during the test. My current feelings of frustration and emptiness are just indications of a weak faith. I think if I strengthen my faith I can strengthen myself 😌. Things would be much easier.
