After receiving a terminal diagnosis and given a few months to live, my friend Pat said, “I want to finish my race well.” I want that too. When I cross the finish line, I want God to say “Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:23) We are given one life, no do-overs. ...

A 2021 American Perspectives Survey shows Americans report fewer close friendships than ever. Many feel if they could find a close friend who truly cares about them, life would not feel sad or lonely.

In the midst of our busy lives, filled with constant noise and distractions, finding moments of stillness can seem like an elusive dream. Yet, amidst the chaos, there exists a profound invitation—a call to solitude, to be alone with God, and to find quiet time in His presence.   In a world that values productivity and busyness, the concept of solitude may seem counterintuitive. However, it is in these moments of quietude that we can truly connect with the God and experience spiritual renew...

"The Lord God Almighty can do all things; there is nothing impossible for Him." ( Luke 1:37) A prayerless Christian is a weak Christian. You don't have much power on your own without prayer against the devil. Prayer is essential in a believers life. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. The most powerful people on the face of the earth are those who have learned to pray. The circumstances in your life and the core of your character are all determined by what you talk ...

We’ve all had that awkward moment of not knowing whether or not to offer a prayer before a meal. We’re not sure if we should just eat, say a silent prayer, or ask our friend to pray. Maybe you’ve already started eating, and someone says, “Let’s pray.” Oops. ...

My grandparents lived in the same house for over sixty years. Their small 2-story farmhouse in the country was built in 1900. As they raised their family, they never made many upgrades. Most people would consider it old-fashioned and out of date. They were very frugal with their money. Their motto was, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” ...

The Last Trumpet Every so often current or upcoming events take social media to a place of mild speculations to full blown fear mongering. This happens with non Christians and Christians alike.

Because of that teaching many have come to the faith only to turn around and leave it, and has left those who were taught this as ch...

Pounding my finger on the icon five times in a row still didn’t open the app. I have no patience for anything less than the phone screen responding instantly. We expect everything to happen quickly; when it doesn’t, we get impatient. ...

These past few months have really flown by for me. We have gone from October Harvest , Thanksgiving,  to Christmas. Then we started a New Year, flew into ValentinesDay, St. Patrick's Day, and now it's already Easter.  It's hard to believe that we are already at the end of March and celebrating April Fools Day for some of us tomorrow.  Besides, Christmas , Easter is my  other favorite holiday .  On Christmas, we get to celebrate our Saviors Birth. And at Easter, we celebrate Jesus' crucifix...
