• In ______ We Trust.

    We live in a world where everything’s instantaneous. I’LL BE HONEST. It’s nice having things right away and not have to wait. We have smart phones, computers, TVs and other devices that work faster than our minds can fathom! Many of us are surrounded by people who love us dearly, and won’t hesitate to come to our rescue when something goes wrong. There’s more security in cars now because of the many features built-in that are accessible just by starting the ignition. We get a sense of security from these things that supposedly “make life better”. Some of us have placed so much trust in things and people as mentioned above that…

  • The Call To ACTIVELY Trust God

  • BE STILL.

    We’re all born with a free will, right? We all want things in life, and honestly, there’s nothing wrong with that. God wants to see His people prosper. Why? He takes pleasure in us. Psalm 147:11 reads, “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy.” The earth and everything in it is His gift to us.
