Down, But Not Out!

Through a lot of Word-of-faith teachings and teachings on the power of the tongue, I sort of got off track on the subject of relying on or trusting in God. I used to think that if I ever backed off or lost momentum in my walk with The Lord, that I’d be on my own while God patiently waited until I got to the “end of my rope” so He could help me. In James 1:1-4, the Word says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

This Is Who I Am

As a father of two girls (ages 3 and 5) I have noticed that children do not have the same social insecurities that adults tend to have. Most children could walk around all day with spaghetti all over their face while wearing completely miss-matched clothing and think nothing of it. It is not uncommon to […]
