Don’t Get Yourself Into Trouble 

Talking to young people about these stabbings and shootings that are on the increase in our communities, I’m realising that folk act first and think later. One of the characteristics of a prudent person is that they give thought to their ways. Too many people today just act or react, based on their emotions or […]

Hardship

Don’t Worry Be Happy…? ?

Have you heard the popular song, “Don’t worry, be happy” or the phrase “don’t worry it’s really not that bad – everything will get better.” Are these words of encouragement or could this be denial of the pain and reality, the stifling down of emotions?  Thinking about these responses got me wandering.

In our minds, the Lord should protect His loyal followers from […]

Lift Your Shield Of Faith 

Fear includes worry. We worry about our kids, our relationships, our finances, or any number of things, we are living in fear. And it can be paralyzing.  Fear displaces our faith. Faith is the assurance of God’s ability to help and strengthen us, giving us spiritual wisdom. When fear displaces our faith, we find it […]

**Wisdom Wednesday’s** In order to grow you have to let go.

Spiritual growth requires change, and the only thing that is holding you back is your resistance. Even though you try really hard to hang on to places of comfort and stability, it is not possible to keep things the same and grow. You must be willing to release the past and make peace with your […]
