Stretched

Growing up I always wanted the latest action figure. It was a little before my time, but it was still a well-known toy by the time I came along.

Pressure’s On

“This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.’” Zechariah 13:9 Pressure can be tough sometimes. Let’s face…

I Promise

    “Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:20-21 God’s blessings are new every morning.

Death–His Pain Our Victory

The song by John Mark McMillan ‘Death in His Grave‘ really says it all. I encourage you to listen to the video at the end of this post. One of my favorite songs growing up was ‘Victory in Jesus‘. We have victory not on our own merit or of our own will; we have victory because of…
