Have a Merry Heart Preparing for Christmas

It has been raining here for the past two days. Today is a bit warmer, so I ventured out to run errands. Let me just start by giving you an update.

Amos, God's Character, Paul

Trying to Live By God’s Standard

Yesterday, at church, our pastor read through the book of Amos. He reminded us that we have to follow God's standard, not society's standard. God's standard is clearly written in the bible.

Daniel, Trusting in God

When You Trust In God, Even Fire Has No Power To Harm You

This morning, I was thinking about the scriptures verses in Daniel. When Daniel's friends were put in the fiery furnace, they did not know what would happen to them. They knew that they were being put to death. Who survives a fiery furnace? Their faith was steadfast and did not waiver. They answered to God,… Continue reading When You Trust In God, Even Fire Has No Power To Harm You
