I never thought much about that little two-letter word “if” until just recently, when I read the following verses: And He asked the scribes, What question ye with them? And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto Thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; And wheresoever he taketh him, … Read More

Isaiah 35:10  – “And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart (where?), down in my heart (where?), down in my … Read More

Back in June I wrote an article about Missed Blessings’.I urged the reader not to miss out on blessings simply because we do not take the time to converse with people or follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.  I am so happy to report that my family and I followed the Holy Spirits leading … Read More

“Motives don’t matter when it comes to serving God!”Is that true? The Biblical perspective would disagree with this statement because God does want a fuel behind your service for Him and it is clearly expressed in Scripture in one word, “Abib.” The word Abib is mentioned four times in Scripture.
