What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do!

We all know what it is like to seek to know God’s will in a matter, desiring to do it His way, but having no clue what to do! You know the feeling don’t you? This is bigger than deciding which flavor of ice cream to have. Sometimes it is a crossroads, a change in life, a new season and the decision is overwhelming. Other times there seems to be no answer and no choice, yet life demands a decision. It is gut wrenching when neither choice seems to be good or right, and the only outcome we can see is disaster. We are tossed back and forth wondering what to do. It is in times like this that “we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen”. 2 Corinthians 4:18. So what do we do, when we do

The Power Of Forgiveness

Move That Wall

We have become very experienced at building walls. Not the kind that protects neighborhoods from the noise of the busy expressway. Nor the walls that keep children hemmed in on the playground. Not the ones that direct rainwater to flow in the right direction. No, I’m talking about the walls we build high and thick hoping to protect our hearts. One brick at a time we build a wall of self-protection. Often times we do this out of necessity to survive in a very evil and hurtful world. As little ones we learned to run and find safety behind a closed door and soon the enemy deceived us into believing this is the best way to live unhurt. Layer by layer the wall grows and suddenly I realize I have
