Hey, do you need a bit o' inspiration? When my world fell apart, and I began rebuilding my life, God told me I was free from lies and to quit living small. God had a plan when He created me, and with Him, I could fulfill that plan. I found this quote early in that… Continue reading Don’t Tell Me
God’s Gym: Hard Times Build Our Faith Muscles
I was reading this morning in James using my favorite translation, The Passion Translation, and was caught by the simple yet powerful words in chapter 1 verses 3 and 4. “For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.

Don’t Know How to Praise?
