Trust Me

What is a relationship without trust? Not a very comfortable one I’d say. Who would enjoy someone constantly double-checking what you say or doubting your motives? No one! But isn’t that what we do to God at times? He gave us his Word, filled with guidelines for life, but do we follow them? Let’s be…

In this dog-eat-dog world of constant competition, we have an alternative. We can celebrate each other’s uniqueness and achievements instead of trying to outdo each other. There is no need to tear each other down; there is no need to trample on each other to get to where we are going. God made each one…

Transformation? Yes, please.

“…be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Romans 12:2 KJV Change. Metamorphosis. Transitioning from one state of being to the other. This can be an exciting time.

And the Moral of the Story is…

Recently, I was looking for an important document, and my need was urgent. So I immediately set out to search the area where I was reasonably sure that I had left it last. But I didn’t find it. I searched twice again before giving up to search other areas. The latter I did halfheartedly because…
