Raise your hand if, like me, you’ve had two or three—or more—people send you YouTube links to Christian prophecies that reveal something awful is about to happen. Money evaporating. Cities burning. UN troops policing US soil. On and on it goes. One thing I’ve noticed in all the videos I’ve been sent, or the ones … Continue reading Brace Yourself!
As the storm of coronavirus rages around me, I am continually looking to Jesus to show me how to respond. A couple of days ago, I went to Matthew 7:24-25 (NKJV) which says, “Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on … Continue reading Don’t Just Stand There!

It’s easy to have a victim mentality these days. A victim of the corona virus. A victim of the partisan system. At the mercy of the economy . Waiting for promised unemployment and stimulus checks. Trapped at home, behind a mask, away from loved ones. Waiting for God to answer prayers and put everything back … Continue reading Don’t Be a Victim of COVID-19
The entire world is focused on the coronavirus. The death count, the economic toll, mental and emotional damage, the forever changes in the fabric of society, and more.
