How to Bless the Lord

How to Bless the Lord

Have you ever wondered what it means to bless the Lord? Many, many times in the Psalms we are told to bless the Lord. What are we supposed to do?

Thriving Despite Distractions

Are you at a dead end? Are you tied to the mundane? Do you miss God in your life? Jesus said, “You’re tied down to the mundane; I’m in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I’m living on other terms. I told you that you were missing God in all this. You’re at a dead end. If you won’t believe I am who I say I am, you’re at…
