Paul, Trusting in God

An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination

I don't know why I get surprised by the goodness of God. God does amazing things for us. When I let go of my worries and give them to God, amazing things happen. I worry. I get stressed out. I try and control the situation, which just gets worse. Then, finally, I truly let go… Continue reading An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination

God's Character, Paul

Everlasting Consolation

In the Fall, I cannot help but feel a little giddy over the changing leaves, a cappuccino (sorry Pumpkin Spiced Latte fans), sweater weather and wearing boots again. It is a joy to find pleasure in the little things and celebrate the changing of the seasons. Change can be scary, and it can be beautiful.… Continue reading Everlasting Consolation

Choices, Choosing Faith Each Day, Paul

Build Each Other Up

I had never considered protecting my heart through faith and love. This morning, when I read the scriptures from Thessalonians, the verses said to put on a breastplate of faith and love. A breastplate protects your heart. The next line says to put on a helmet as a hope of salvation. A helmet protects our… Continue reading Build Each Other Up

Paul, Trusting in God

Power In Truth

The ┬ábible is a powerful book. When I start my day, I remind myself to lay my worries before God. Through good times and difficult times, I always have concerns. I pray the Holy Spirit will tell me what I should know today, and I read the bible. The bible is the living word of… Continue reading Power In Truth
