Fickle Faith

Hebrews 10:38-39 KJV “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. [39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

The Essence Of Life

The Essence Of Life

Sometimes when the day dawns bleak and you feel like everything is so dark in your life, you wonder why you even bother getting out of bed. You don’t see the Sun shining bright; you can’t hear the birds singing or see the flowers blooming; you don’t hear laughter or voices talking in peaceful rhythm with each other.

Love The Sinner John 8:10-11 KJV “When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

Only God Is Good

Matthew 19:16-17 KJV “And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Upgrade and Self-Improvement

A Necessary Upgrade 1 Peter 2:2 KJV “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” In context, the Holy Scripture verses go thus: 1 Peter 2:1-5 KJV “Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, [2] As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: [3] If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

Helping The Poor

Helping The Poor

Ecclesiastes 11:1 KJV “Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.” When you look at the verse above and take it literally, you will wonder why you’d be so foolish as to throw bread upon the waters. It is a pointless act, unless you meant to get rid of the bread altogether. The math is simple: throw bread upon the water, and you definitely won’t find it again. You definitely won’t get it back…

I remember the day I first read Psalm 23 on my own. Even then, it struck a memorable chord with me. Through out the years as I grew up, it remained one of my go-to Bible passages. Here’s one of the many reasons it is me favorite: Psalm 23:1 KJV…

What Time Is It?

What Time Is It?

Welcoming The New Year, 2019 There is excitement, uncertainty, a little bit of fear and a whole lot of hope every time a new year dawns. This is how I, for one, always feel anyway. Excitement for the unknown because, adventures, you know? Uncertainty and fear for the very same reason. But you hope that at the end of your adventures…well, the end of the year anyway….you will have accomplished something worthwhile. So, what is it that you hope to…
