So, if you can’t stand the heat, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should get out of the kitchen. It means that perhaps you should open up your eyes and realize that you are exactly where God wants you to be. Just look at the...

24 Apr Blog (4/24/13): Take Charge!

How often do we freeze in our tracks when we know that God is prompting us to take action? When we have asked God into our situations, He rarely expects us to sit back and do nothing. Most of the time, we don’t see Him...

17 Apr Blog (4/17/13): Pushing Through

Among the stories I was drawn to was that of a runner who saw the blasts, felt the concussion of the massive wall of moving air, and dropped to his knees. But then, it was decision time. Should he run away and take cover? Most...
