God is Ever Present
The Psalmist declares, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble”. (Ps. 46:1) Although all of us experience difficult seasons that feel like long dark nights, this verse explains that God is willing to wait together with us during the darkness and help bring rest till the dawn arrives. What a wonderful image it is […]
They Gave It All
Jesus said in John 15:13 “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Today, we in America celebrate this. There are countless men and women that have gave it all for all of us. We remember them and their ultimate sacrifice; we give them and their families honor and […]
“Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things.” (Ecclesiastes 11:5) I will be the first one to admit many times I am so baffled of what God has planned […]
Long Dark Night
In Psalm 90:14, Moses prays to God, “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90 is Moses’ account of Israel’s “long dark night”, also known as 40 years wandering in the desert due to disobedience.

Why This Waste?
Why this waste?” are the words that Judas shouts after seeing the woman anoint Jesus’ head and feet with expensive perfume from her beautiful alabaster bottle. Many believe this would have been a year’s worth of savings in order to have the funds to purchase this rare perfume from India. Many, if not most of the […]
“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord , will keep me safe.” (Psalms 4:8) We need to have that passion, assurance and faith in God that everything will be okay no matter what is going on. God has your back even when we don’t feel Him there. He already knows […]
Sunday Morning Christian?
Unfortunately, I know a few of them and as disheartening as it is, I also have been one of ” Those people”. I didn’t mean to be of course, but with the business of work, family, other commitments and not having my priorities right, I too have fallen into that trap of a Sunday worshiper. […]
