God Must Shake His Head

DSCF0788

I often wonder how many times God has shaken His head at me? For my lack of faith, my steps backward, etc. How many times have I failed Him? Jesus lived and walked among his disciples, performing miracles at their sides. Yet even they lacked faith, and they didn’t understand at times. How frustrating it …

Little is Much….

Many of us know this story by heart, even as I was reading this I was just skimming over the verses. Jesus drew great crowds wherever He went, and they often followed Him great distances away from home. Here we find the people 3 days into their time with Jesus, and He doesn’t want to …

Jesus Tosses a Crumb

How many of us are involved in a ministry that is for a specific gender, age group or place in life? I know my lil corner here is gender specific and is geared towards women that are wives and/or mothers. When we are ministering are we so set on reaching our targeted audience that we …
