He Is Risen

Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? The symbol of our faith is not a wooden cross. What Jesus accomplished on the cross is life changing and absolutely amazing!

God’s Promised Protection from Diseases

Many times God sends angels to protect, guard, and fight for us. The Bible says in Psalm 91 that He would give angels charge concerning us to guard us in all our ways.

You Are Loved!

Holidays or days with a “Title” can be difficult for some. Like Valentines Day which highlights if we are single and causes us to focus on how it feels to be alone. It points out even if we have our person or are married whether or not we received any special validation, any special kindness,Continue reading “You Are Loved!”

Our God – Creator and Sustainer of the Universe!

Sometimes we just need to go back to the basics. I simply went back to the Merriam Webster for this one. Clarity – God CREATED and CONTROLS the UNIVERSE and everything in it! So, when it is said that the Universe did this or did that –- again, God CREATED and CONTROLS the UNIVERSE. GodContinue reading “Our God – Creator and Sustainer of the Universe!”
