Defeating Despair

Falling Into Despair- The Devil’s Joy   Of the many unifying aspects that humans have, an unavoidable one is the fact that we all sin.

Casting Your Cares On Him

            It was commanded by Christ, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:24) This verse has been heard so many times, but how often do you and I worry about the events of

Using the Advent Season

Now that it’s December, everyone is in the Christmas mood. The Christmas music is blasting, the Christmas lights and decorations are flashing, people are frantically gift shopping, and, most importantly, Starbucks is selling it’s signature peppermint mocha once again.

The greatest gift of God! This week’s article will take us on a journey to find what seems to be unfolded through

When God Says No

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11) I was often angry at God when I was younger. I thought He was supposed to talk to me when I asked a question. I


Okay everyone, raise your hand if you’ve done the following: you were so bored that you ate, not because you were hungry but because even eating added some mental stimulation to your day.  If you didn’t raise your hand, you’re lying (or clearly you have big brain energy).  But in all honesty, a large majority
