Sometimes the burdens of life become far too heavy to carry alone. That’s when it’s very good to ask someone to pray for you. Several years ago, Country singer Ricky Skaggs sang a beautiful song about this: “Somebody’s prayin, I can feel it Somebody’s prayin’ for me Mighty hands are guiding me To protect what […]

It’s easier to think about putting someone in their place as opposed to thinking about putting myself in their place. “I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.”  (Maya Angelou) “We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.” […]

The phrase “fear not” is used at least 80 times in the Bible, most likely because God knows the enemy uses fear to decrease our hope and limit our victories. Never trust your fears. They don’t know your strength.  “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1) Keith Madison SCORE […]

“I once had a $18,000 a month house payment in Beverly Hills. A friend of mine said, ‘do you know how many people care where you live? Five, If you’re lucky. The rest are just jealous.’ I sold it. Now my house payment is about $1000 a month and no one cares but me. I’m […]
