The trumpets will remind the Lord your God of his covenant with you, I am the Lord your God. Numbers 10:10 Why would God, who is all knowing, need to…

What we can learn from Acts

We can learn so much from the Book of Acts. It is very relevant to our daily lives today.

Finishing up Acts This week we finished up our study in the book of Acts. I am surprised how relevant this study has been to me and my life right now.

Paul’s Life Could be A Movie

Paul was on mission, he knew exactly what he was assigned to do and he did it even knowing the cost. Are you willing to be as obedient?

Movie Drama This week we are entering into some dramatic times in the life of Paul. This weeks chapters included chapters 20 – 25. The amount of drama included in this chapter is enough to make a mini-series as well as a full length movie. If you doubt me about the movie drama, here is a brief synopsis. Paul says…

That Proverbs 31 Woman

That Proverbs 31 Woman….. This week in Proverbs 31, I have been struggling just a bit with our study. I find myself comparing myself to the woman described in our chapter and find that I fall way short in pretty much every area that is listed in the verses of chapter 31. I can’t always stay up late working and…
