“Not as though I have already attained, either have already become perfect … forgetting what is pass and looking to that which lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil3:12, 14

I can’t fathom being without my Bible. I’m so spoiled. I have a new digital Bible that I keep notes in. Love that I can Continue reading

“Choose you this day whom you will serve … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

Is it interesting to you that Joshua encouraged the people around him to choose the god they wanted to serve? Though I skipped a few noted details, this verse is exactly Continue reading


Freedom: Prayer

prayer2If My people, who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

At first glance, one might think this promise Continue reading
