What Next???     22 Comments
With the clock counting down, I could only sit watching for a miracle comeback... yet the comeback was nowhere in sight.


God's Unfailing Promises     3 Comments
When things seem to be going badly, we often wonder where God is, and if He is really going to keep His promises. The truth is, God not only keeps His promises, but does it in a way that is more amazing and wonderful than we could ever imagine... even if at the moment it seems He has completely forgotten about us...


Should We Fear Death?     1 Comments
Death is something that continuously intrigues the human mind... so much so that we are surrounded by movies concerning the afterlife, books explaining the afterlife, and even philosophers trying to explain it... yet there's one Book that gives a clear definition, and tells whether we as Christians should be fearful of what many claim to be "the unknown..."


God, Are You Listening?     10 Comments
Have you ever prayed to God for something, only to be left wondering if God was even listening?


Sowing in Tears     3 Comments
We are often able to focus on all the bad things that happen in our lives, the things that make us cry, mourn, and sometimes even question life and God's will for us... yet we often forget how blessed we are, and all the joy that God has brought into our life...


A Bitter-Sweet Devotion    
Today is filled with grief and sorrow, as we remember those who were tragically killed in the Westroads Mall shooting...


Stuck in My Own Hole     14 Comments
Some days nothing seems to go our way, and some days are far worse than others. Where is God when we need Him most?




Matthew 23:12
[12] And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Isaiah 40:28-31
[28] Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. [29] He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. [30] Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: [31] But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

1 John 1:9
[9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Psalms 91:1-16
[1] He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. [3] Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. [4] He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. [5] Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; [6] Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. [7] A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. [8] Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. [9] Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; [10] There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. [11] For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. [12] They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. [13] Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. [14] Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. [15] He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. [16] With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Romans 8:38-39
[38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
