He Knows You

Topics to Dig Into

And we are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. 1 John 5:14 (NLT) I just signed up to receive a daily email reminder to pray. Why? Because I forget. A friend shared a family issue with me recently because she “knows I’m someone who prays often.” A response…

I Didn’t Think I Was Lost

For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost. Luke 19:10 (NLT) This verse isn’t for me. I’m not lost. I know where I’m going and what I’m doing and when I don’t, I Google it. I don’t need help – I can handle it. Sound familiar? Nor did I…

Come and Talk with Me

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me”, and I respond, “I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT) Come and talk with me. I love this invitation, don’t you? I imagine God patting the sofa cushion and encouraging me to sit. And I try to respond “I am coming”, because I’m at my…

I Can’t Do It

Teach me your decrees, O Lord; I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions; I will put them into practice with all my heart. Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found. Give me an eagerness for you…
