  • Unfinished Business

    02/6/2023 When I was a kid, I liked going to the store with my mom. And on several occasions, I would coax her into buying me a model airplane or a model car; something like that.

  • Faith and Patience

    01/30/2023 I hate waiting, don't you? Waiting can get us all stressed out and frustrated. And when we wait, and wait, and WAIT for God to work and answer our prayers, it's easy to start thinking that God really doesn't care. But God tells us in Hebrews 6:12 it's through faith and patience that we inherit His promises. Continue reading…

    01/26/2023 His name was Joseph. The way he carried himself communicated to people that God was able, no matter how bleak the situation might be.
