God is not hesitant to step into your crisis. He's a Master at showing you a way out!

God Shares Your Crisis

  Since the world-transforming virus first appeared over the horizon, things have gotten absolutely and breathtakingly crazy! It has ushered in changes in most areas of our lives. We’ve worn masks, quit talking to each other, become suspicious of any news we hear. There has been an elevation of wickedness, hateful acts done without apparent […]

Satan is not a better strategist than God. The battle belongs to the Lord!

It’s Not Obvious, But It Is Real

  Ever felt like there’s a bullseye on the front and back of your shirt and Satan is holding the bow and arrows? While the media and many politicians are busy switching price tags… claiming that wrong is now right and right is absolutely wrong – claiming it’s illegal to kill an endangered animal while […]

God – our Victory

We absolutely cannot save ourselves from the penalty of our sinful lives, but God’s mercy covers those sins and welcomes us into […]

We live in a polluted world filled with alluring voices issuing calls to leave moral standards behind and join with others […]

God's glory and purposes are often hidden in the storms of our lives. It's there... look for it!

Look For the Glory!

  “Jesus said, “You’re asking the wrong question. You’re looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do.” John 9:2,3 MSG  We love ‘cause and effect’ answers to our questions. There are always people and ideas to blame when our lives are disheveled and out of […]
