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.

There are challenges in life that can only be faced with God’s help. We would be wise to trust Him in all of life’s challenges whether they reveal themselves as a major storm or just a bump in the road. “But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. […]

We need to be passionate about our faith, our relationships, our careers, our dreams, our goals and even our hobbies. And, we should surround ourselves with people who encourage us in what we are passionate about. I saw this quote recently: “Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.” (Unknown) “Whatever you […]

Recently, I have discovered that I need to be intentional about trusting God during each challenge. When my trust is bigger than my fear I’m able to see God’s hand at work. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.” (Jesus…John 14:1) Keith Madison SCORE International
