Embracing God’s Strength in our Weakness

Learning to embrace God’s strength in our weakness is not something that happens overnight.  It is also something that does not happen during the happy times of our life.  These lessons are learned through tears and heartache, loneliness and depression, and anxiety and fear.  The wonderful news is that we have hope.  Our hope becomes […]

Good Things Come to Those Who are Willing

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “willing”. “And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand. 2 So they watched Him closely, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. 3 And He said to the man who had the withered hand, “Step forward.” 4 Then He said to them, “Is it lawful on […]

The most awful […]
