Stagger not at the promises

(As it is written, “I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Romans 4:17-21 KJV)

It’s the small things

Have you ever found yourself so busy or consumed by stuff you didn’t find much joy in the whole day? In this topsy turvy world we can rush right past the blessings and joy right in front of us overtaken by endless checklists and constant distractions.

Afraid of God?

Is God angry with you? Is he watching and waiting for an occasion to punish you? Many have spent their entire lives afraid of God, afraid to approach him. God has gone to great lengths to show us that he’s not mad at us.

God wants to use you

“For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, ‘Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord’.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 New American Standard Bible.

A more healthy you

Did you know that the word “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”? That seems like a holy combination. I mean, who doesn’t like desserts? But sometimes desserts don’t like us when it comes to the extra calories and pounds they can produce. Now, there’s nothing wrong with desserts in moderation and proper portions but I want to discuss a more healthy you - and that involves more than limiting the number of banana puddings and DQ Blizzards you eat.
