The Power of God’s Word

I will never forget the first time I opened my Bible to read for the first time.  I didn’t know where to start or what to read.  I felt overwhelmed and lost.  There were so many words and pages.  How did I even begin?   Once I opened the Scriptures and started reading, a whole […]

Yes Lord

“God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called” quote Mark Batterson.             Has God ever asked you do something that didn’t make sense?

It’s All About Love

Have you ever imagined what the world look like if love didn’t exist?  Life wouldn’t be worth living if love didn’t exist.  Love is why we exist and why God created us. According to 1  Corinthians 13:1-3, If we have faith and not love we are nothing.  If  we give all that we have and […]

Jesus In Disguise

I wanted to share with you about the first time I went to Honduras on a mission trip with our church.  We went down to help build a building for the sponsor children for Compassion International.  We were in a community outside […]

God Never Wastes Our Pain

There I was exhausting every means of avoiding.  Hiding. Running.  Anything I could do not to stare at the face of the unknown right before me.  I had become weary and ran out of excuses of why I couldn’t just be still.  I was broken, afraid and backed into a dark corner.  I didn’t want […]
