Count It All Joy

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭4‬ It’s funny, maybe a little ironic, that as I read this verse,...

Keep the Faith

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭ Faith, it is a big word in five letters.

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:13-14‬ ‭ I remember memorizing the scripture when my...

Do Not Fear Or Be Dismayed

And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8 This promise was given to the Israelites as God transitioned them from the leadership of Moses to the leadership of Joshua. He was planning to take the Israelites... Continue Reading →

Seek Him

Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6 Pleasing God takes faith in Jesus Christ. When we believe who Jesus is, we will begin to seek God for... Continue Reading →
