“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 My previous experience and common method of bible study involve reading bible scriptures coupled with other bible reference material when a further explanation was desired. Recently I started reading one of my late mom’s bible’s, (The Daily Bible, NIV by Harvest House Publishers), the New International Version), along…


Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness

Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…

Be Still and Know that I am God

“Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10, NLT).  One of my favorite scriptures in the bible is Psalm 46:10. My late mother often recited this verse when she felt overwhelmed or moved to share her wisdom on the subject of being discontent. Mother would say “sometimes you just need to be still, let go and let God.”  It seems that every time I heard her say this, I was going through something. Clarity was out of…

"Be Still and Know that I am God"


Protecting values and thoughts is a big job these days considering the amount of garbage waiting to distort them. Sadly, over the years I’ve seen more and more evidence of “the blind leading the blind.” Those who lead seem to have various but questionable ideas that falsely suggest people have the power to determine their own destiny. Right out the gate believer’s should take issue with that perception but many do not. If you do…

Are Poor People Just Bad Planners?

[sell_downloads] Blaming the poor for their circumstances is nothing new. Actually it’s easier than searching ourselves, “those more fortunate. “American’s should accept responsibility for this epic disgrace.” “Poor people make rich people  richer, that’s why they will always be among us” ? Credit below: New Republic Elliot Berkman When considering poverty, our national conversation tends to overlook systemic causes. Instead, we often blame the poor for their poverty. Commentators echo the claim that people are poor…
