Do the work: Now is not forever

Having hope that now is not forever is a good thing. Situations change, we move on, and difficulties cease to be the same. New difficulties come along and we have to be ready to face them, by the Grace of God and with full trust that it is not I who lives but Christ who…

A Broken Future: Pleasure, Money, Power, and Longevity are gods

Perhaps we think that the future for the generations to come and our current youth will be bright and beautiful. I disagree. The world is moving in a direction of haphazardness and chaos. The future of the young is worrisome and unpredictable. Why? The answer in short is: God is not the center of our…

Disconnected by Distractions

Are fear and anger first cousins?

Have you ever noticed that behind every angry person’s screams and violence that is a little scared child inside??? I think that whenever we get angry, the deeper wound we are experiencing is fear.
