Releasing Control to God

Releasing Control to God

This world seems to think being in control is the best thing ever or, at least, something everyone should strive to have. But I dare to disagree. Being in control is not my goal, releasing control to God is. Some of you now think I am a lunatic. I understand. If you have not found God to be a loving and caring parent, you most likely don’t want to have anything to do with him. Then also releasing control to…

How to Be at Peace

How to Be at Peace

As we approach Thanksgiving and other big family celebrations, it is good to remember how to be at peace in demanding situations. We can’t be peaceful without being centered on God. We can’t be gracious without resting in grace ourselves. We can’t be loving without feeling God’s love. What to do then? Before you enter into difficult situations (or any day for that matter) spend time with God. Not just a hasty prayer here and there but pray until praise…

How to Live Carefree

God Cares

God Cares

Do you have any idea how much God cares for you? Because God’s love for you is boundless. God went to great lengths to make a way for us to get back to him. But even that’s not all. God wants to care for you right now, right where you are. God cares for you more than you ever know. No matter what you’ve done or left undone. You are loved. I waited a long time for the Eternal;     He…
