True Bliss

Psalm 119:1-5 (NLT) Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.

Fullness

John 1:16 (ESV) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. I am struck by the thought of the fullness of God.

Do You See What I See

Psalm 145:15-16 (NIV) The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. Tis the season of immediate gratification. It is easy to get caught up in the madness. Our eyes are filled with visions of new things and…

Give Thanks

Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV)  So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
