Fear is a Poor Bedfellow

Fear will kill dreams, destroy relationships, paralyze, cause illness, put you in the poor house,  bring depression and even cause physical death. Fear is hellish! Fear comes from Satan. Throughout your life he planted those little seeds of death. He manipulated people to hurt, offend, or misunderstand you. He magnified every failure. He whispers accusations […]

Why Forgive?

This is what forgiveness does… … it frees us! When we can see the offender as someone trapped in their own nightmare, a victim (because without Christ that is what we are) then we have better understanding. When we suffer for Christ, we suffer as Christ did, for a people who had no light or […]

In the Surrender

Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 One thing I do know, anything I place in His hands is safe.
