Lest I Forget

Psalm 103:1-5 (ESV) Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!

Lord, Awaken Me

Ephesians 5:14-17 (ESV) …For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the…

On My Knees

The Path of Uncertainty

I John 4:16-18 (NLT)  We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on…

In My Weakness

Hebrews 4:14-16 (NLT)  So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly…
