Why is it so hard to have Faith?

Luke 8:22-25:  We are talking about understanding the word.  Take this for example, we know that at least 4 of Jesus' disciples are experienced fishermen.  This passage mentions a squall: a sudden burst of winds around 40 mph,  which does not last.  It does not say a terrible storm, a hurricane.  The point is at least 4...

Unforgiveness, just let it go

Last night I went to see the movie “The Shack” last night with some friends.  During the movie, I felt some of my own hate boil up.

It is a question many still have today.  The answer is not a long drawn out prayer.  The answer is found in the Lord's prayer.  It is actually just a few lines.  We give up our praises acknowledging that God is in charge.

Psalm 31:1-5: Trust in the Lord

I have had people thank me for writing about being down. It seems many struggle.  That is why God gave us David. David struggled, but he always turned it back to God. I think that is the key, Give it to God. 1 In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;     let me never be put to... Continue Reading →

Adoption : sonship / daughtership

You are probably wondering if there is a difference.  Yes, with the word ship at the end, it means a legal process, and full inheritance. It means we have a new identity.  It is more than we lived in a home, thought of this person as dad, he is the only dad we really know.... Continue Reading →
