On the Rise – New Age Beliefs in the Church

I’m sharing something today, that I hope will begin some conversation about where we are as the Church – as the Body of Christ. While this post addresses issues found in the western church – North America, in particular – these beliefs and practices have a global reach.  This is a video by Steven Bancarz…

HOPE Restored

Hope is a dangerous thing to lose. We can face the hardest of circumstances – persevere through seemingly unending trials – as long as we maintain our hope. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;…

Thoughts Upon Waking – God’s Beauty

Sometimes, upon waking, I will receive a word from the Lord. I will also, oftentimes, wake up with a song on my heart that I believe He longs for me to lift back up to Him. The word and song I received morning before last touched my heart and encouraged me, tremendously…and continues to do…
