praying in the spirit title

Prayer, a necessity to our spiritual experience, is also one of the trickiest practices of our spiritual experience. Is can be frustrating because there is not one clearly defined formula for success. Answers may seem non-existent, especially when things don’t happen in the exact way we prayed for. There are difficult requests that challenge how…

Connection with God, whether staticky or solid, is good. Our Heavenly Father, who loves us dearly, enjoys having an individual relationship with each of us. Because He desires more for us, we should want more for ourselves as well. This is one reason why He has given us the Holy Spirit. Baptism by immersion is Biblical…

The power of storytelling was evident as he spoke. The honoree, upon accepting a special award of recognition, shared a glimpse of his past during his speech. As a young child, while he couldn’t protect his mother from pain, he did the next best thing: brought her joy. Though his childhood was traumatic, he chose to…

At first, the small army was headed for the battlefields. Then, plans changed and they were sent back home, to a place that was unrecognizable when they returned. While the men were away, the defenseless Ziklag was raided, plundered and burned. All the women and children were captured, kidnapped by an enemy. The army forged…

2019 day 10 title

Bi-weekly, the staff met to discuss workflow. This was a time to brainstorm solutions for their daily challenges. Instead, focused on playing the ‘blame game’ rather than solving problems. Every meeting was smothered by negativity. If this department did their part… If that person operated more efficiently… If this internal system was more effective… If that information was more readily available… I don’t…

Followers of Christ have curious tendencies, like trusting God when life doesn’t make sense. It’s hard to encourage any faith when senseless, heartless evils silently lurk in every nook and cranny of our lives.
