  • FINISH: Looking back at my Word for 2021

    Whenever we choose a word for the year, set out to accomplish a big task, or create a large goal, there will always be failure along the way. At the end of the day, everyone fails. The difference between those who end up succeeding and those who don’t is not that they didn’t fail, but how they responded to the failure.

    John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

  • Believe there is a Way

    We can believe there is a way because we know the waymaker. His name is Jesus and He said this “I am the way” (John 14:6). Without Him, there is no way. But when we believe Him, there is a way!

    We must remember. For when we do not remember, we stop believing. My question for you is simple: do you believe

  • Thankful: The Way of Life

    There is nothing in this world that you can get enough or create enough of that can make you as thankful as the things which you can only receive from God.
