My Chains Are Gone

During my devotions, I have recently begun a study of Romans. Last night, I was reading and studying the first ten verses of chapter 6, and I realized I have been doing something majorly wrong.

Word of the Week – Free

May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. -Peter Marshall Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. -Psalm 51:12, KJV The million little things that drop into your hands – the small…

Almost Makes You Believe in God

Why do people, especially Christians, worry? Don’t we know that God will take care of us? On Saturday morning, my cat Miss Potter was lounging around in the sun as if she didn’t have a care in the world. She probably didn’t. She was perfectly content in where she was, who she was, and whatever…

Song of the Week – Drops in the Ocean

I want you as you are, not as you ought to be Won’t you lay down your guard and come to me The shame that grips you now is crippling It breaks my heart to see you suffering ‘Cause I am for you I’m not against you If you wanna know how far my love…
