Are you carrying baggage from your past? Maybe it is time to let go so you can move forward. Don't let your past weigh you down
But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14 Have you...

Introducing the African Study Bible---- and how you can help!
When I read the bible, I don’t have a favorite translation. I often will read several different translations and compare them, which often helps me to understand. Not too long ago I had a chance...

My perspective is so different than God's perspective. It helps so much when/if I can step back and see the bigger picture, instead of focusing only on what I can see in the moment.
What does perspective mean to you? Take a look at the images. What do you see? When I look at the first one, I see the word ‘Good’, but if you look closer at the...

"Dwelling on the past can control my future, and I don’t need to go where I have already been."

It's a new year-- look back only to see where you came from, but don't forget to keep moving forward into new territory.  
Out with the old and in with the new. The beginning of a new year brings with it lots of thoughts. Usually a new year is associated with goal setting …

Does God want you in jail? It is a strange question, but for Joseph, that was part of God's will for his life. Not always are hard circumstances from the enemy. Sometimes God allows a difficult season to prepare you for something bigger and better. It's not easy to see in the moment, but it becomes evident when you look backwards and can see God's hand through the entire situation.
It is not easy to understand, but it was part of God’s plan that Joseph end up in shackles, in slavery, and ultimately in jail. It may be part of God’s plan that you go...

Thanks for sharing.

In Finding Nemo, the "daddy fish" was a bit controlling. Not saying we should rebel if we don't like something but I am thankful that God is not like that. God is gracious and patient towards me as I mature and be more and more like Him!

Thanks again for your post!

Following God is not easy. The path he has for us to follow is not always easy to see. If you know the vision God has given to you, you can clarify that vision to ensure you continue to travel in the right direction
Clarifying your vision We lived in North Carolina for a few years, right in the middle of the Great Smokey Mountains. It is very easy to tell where the name comes from. If you have...

Easter is coming---are you guilty of watering down the Easter story when teaching your kids? 
When teaching about Easter story, sometimes I think the some of the message gets lost in trying to protect our kids from some of the painful details. Reducing the Easter story …
