“If we do the little things like they are big things, then God will do the big things like they are little things. (From “Draw the Circle” by Mark Batterson) When we work, we work; when we pray, God works. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, […]

As hard as we may try, we all fall short of being righteous. Paul even declared in Romans 3:10, “”There is no one righteous, not even one.” But God, in His incredible love for us, gave to us the Righteous One, Jesus Christ. Paul also said in 2 Corinthians 5:21, “God made Him who had […]

Today, most of us will make multiple decisions, interact with several people, meet old and new challenges and attempt to have a positive, productive day. You can! Be encouraged to ask God to go before you to prepare the hearts and minds of those you come in contact with and to help you “take captive […]

Devotion, prayer, Bible Study, trust, obedience, service, loving God and loving others; These are a few things we might give to God. But, we can, in no way, “out give” God. If we give more of ourselves to God, God will give more of Himself to us.” (Mark Batterson) “For God so loved the world, […]

It doesn’t work well when we try to force our plan on God. Many times His plan looks different than ours. Submission and surrender are words I don’t normally like to think about. They are great concepts for you; not so much for me! LOL. God sees the big picture, we can’t, unless He chooses […]

I want to be careful not to post anything on social media that I would not say to someone while engaging in a face to face conversation with them. The Bible is still very relevant for our world of technology and social media. Listen to Paul’s instructions from 2,000 years ago: “Don’t have anything to […]
