  • Patient

    Continuing to expound on the Peace, Patience, and Presence post earlier this week, this post will expound on patience. The definition for patience is “calm endurance of hardship, provocation, pain, delay, etc.”. This definition was found in the Reader’s Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder. However, the definition I retrieved from the NLT Dictionary states that patience […]

  • Peace

    Expounding on peace from my post on Monday, I want to encourage looking for the real and eternal peace, the peace of God. This peace is founded on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. John 14:27 – “I am, leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is […]

  • Contentment

    Contentment – a satisfied state; tranquil happiness 1 Timothy 6:6 – “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” How satisfied are you with your life?

    Courage means “the ability to disregard fear.” I got this definition from the Reader’s Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder published in 1996. Twenty-six years ago. Still holds true today.

    Today, I want to talk about surrender. Surrendering to God is difficult, at best for most of us. Most of us don’t surrender until we come face to face with things being totally out of our control. Still surrender is challenging. Then, we realize we need to trust God whether we like it or not.

  • Trusting God Now – Really?

    Yes, really. While pondering trust this week, it is apparent that many people may not want to trust God right now. How could He allow this to happen? I can understand this thought process. However, at this time, God is the only one you can trust. Psalm 20:7 – “Some trust in chariots and some […]

    What do you see when you look out of your window? Gathering insight from the various bloggers on their view of their world, I thought this question would be thought-provoking regarding the world we live in and the current state of affairs.
