New Beginnings – Prisoner of Hope

People are eternally hopeful and optimistic, even the coldest, hardest people we know carries hope deep in their heart. God created us this way. God deposited it in our hearts when He made us. If we had no hope, then we probably never would have invited Jesus to be our savior. We would have thought, … Read more

Staying Connected

Mark 4:1-9 is called the Parable of the Sower. Jesus used it to teach about the four different kinds of hearts. It’s a parable about the ways people respond to God’s word. The first thing Jesus says in this parable is that the sower goes out to sow. Later, Jesus explains this statement by saying … Read more

Joy of the Lord

When we don’t tap into the spiritual fruit of joy, we negate our source of strength. “…Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”(Nehemiah 8:10b) The truth of this verse turns the world’s definition of strength upside down. The world wants us to think that strength is the ability to … Read more

Looking Beyond Pain

We should never allow our pain to make us cold and insensitive to God. How do we look beyond the pain though? By responding to hurt the way our Father tells us to. We imitate Jesus. What did Jesus do in the middle of the most painful moment of His life? He looked ahead to … Read more
