I talk a lot about … Continue reading Herein Is Love
Yet again the Devotional Sermons of George H. Morrison has hit home. Speaking on the Prodigal has feed my soul with the meat it needed. Sometimes it is hard to stand against the world, to not say give me, but instead to cry out from the heart with utter desperation "Father, make me!" When our … Continue reading The Two Petitions of the Prodigal
I am growing increasing fond of George H. Morrison's Devotional Sermons. Each day it's such a blessing to read them, as they always speak to an issue I am dealing with or that is immediately relevant to y life that day. Today's was no exception.

Pray for … Continue reading God Forgive Us

I want to talk to you tonight about being saved. That phrase always sounded strange to me before I was, I thought of physically saved and couldn't make sense of it spiritually. Then one day I began to get it, to really understand what it meant, to need to be saved! To enter into a … Continue reading Saved!
This morning as I was preparing to teach my toddlers at Church my plans got changed a bit, apparently God had other ideas about how I should approach teaching them about Samson. My tablet I usually use to show them a quick video of the lesson and then to play the song we are working … Continue reading Strengthen Me
