The Fruit of Our Lips

Words have power. Words are not just sounds that we hear; they are living, powerful realities that can either help or harm. In the book of Proverbs, Solomon teaches about human speech.

Simplicity in Spring

Spring signals nature’s awakening. As nature unfolds the newness all around us, we may find ourselves desiring lighter, fresher food choices. Spring foods bring a clean, crisp, fragrant element to the menu (think berries and early greens). Greens, a traditional springtime food choice in most cultures, provide a refreshing, cooling, and cleansing effect to the […]

God’s Spa

When thinking about spas, we usually envision someplace to relax, pamper ourselves, and get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It’s a place where we can go to forget our problems.

The morning sunrises alone offer the partaker the revelation of the limitless palette of colors the Heavenly Father possesses and how creative a Master Painter He is, […]

Finding Peace in God’s Storehouse

In God’s Storehouse there are blessings too numerous to count, and one of the most valuable you will find there is peace. Though the gift of divine peace is available to all Christians, few attain it because we receive our reality through what we see with our eyes and hear with our ears. Just like […]

Harvest in the Midst of the Storm

I grew up with a mango tree on our property which produced great fruit during its season every year. My passion for mangos inspired me to wake up early to gather them. The Lord Jesus Christ has amazing ways of showing us His abundant grace and love through our passions and desires. So it is […]
