The Frequency Of Heaven

So often, I find myself wrestling with deep yearnings in my heart and desperately longing for answers to the questions swirling around my mind. Some things that we carry and desire are so intense that we are not sure what to do with them. In these times, it seems like the casual, passing prayers for help…

Living In The Light

“Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” Colossians…

Undanted By The Task

Have you ever felt like what God has spoken to you or asked you to do were bigger than your capabilities? I think we would all answer with a resounding, “yes!” because this seems to be the way that God works. He delights in giving us a task or challenge that is either just beyond our reach…
