    Be Content.

    It was last Saturday that I had my first little meltdown about this whole corona virus quarantine situation… I wasn’t crying over materialist things that I didn’t have or couldn’t have, but rather, it was the fact that life has changed so drastically. I wanted to go see my parents. I wanted to be in church and Sunday school. I wanted to go see the sweet people from our nursing home ministry.

    What David Learned About Fear

David certainly had a reason to be afraid when Saul and his huge army set out to kill him. He says… “For I have heard the slander of many: FEAR was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.” – Psalm 31:13 kjv Sometimes I’m surprised at David’s FEAR, since he courageously brought down Goliath, the giant.

    3 Simple Ways You Can Offer Praises to God

Here’s 3 simple ways you can offer praises to God: 1.  Share your own testimony of what God has done for you. Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing…
