Finding The Inner Courage You Didn’t Know You Had

I am a scary cat. I am terrified to talk in pubic. I am petrified to open up about myself to other. I am even more so scared of making people upset with me. Blame it on my need to be a people pleaser. Yet, if it is one thing that I have learned this year it is that you can not be a people pleaser and a follower of Christ. You can not be afraid to share of yourself to others and expect to create an impact on them. When I look back over this year oh man how God has pulled me out of a lot of my … [Read More...]

Providing pure forgiveness is hard. Yet this week Joesph showed us how in our GMG study.

Why is being content so important?

Working On Contentment

Being content in our lives takes work. Contentment is not something that just happens. Far from it actually because we are a needy people. We always want something more.

They see us working super hard to keep up with the latest and greatest things instead of being thankful for the things that have already been provided for us.   We are teaching our children thankfulness … [Read More...]

Praying For His Heart
