I have a fondness for America’s Keswick for several reasons, the primary one is God changed my life there. It…
Today I’m trusting in the following verses, not just for myself but for so many other people that God has brought into our lives.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” – Isaiah 43:19
Dr. Bill Senyard recently interviewed Andrew Springer about his life, addiction, and the gospel. Check out part one below! Or you can download it wherever you get your podcasts from!
There is a certain amount of wisdom in telling someone when they are first getting sober to avoid people, places and things associated with their drinking or using. These can all make it hard to stay sober as they put you in a certain mood or dredge up memories.
Many people love saying this, and I can’t disagree with it. It’s the word of God, and it makes sense. No one will receive the truth from someone unless it’s spoken from a place of love. Conversely, there is no point in having a whole lot of love without truth. For this will leave someone feeling good temporarily, but later they will have no firm foundation
“For the LOVE of money is a root of all kinds of evil…” 1 Timothy 6:10.
I hear this Bible verse misquoted so often as “Money is the root of all evil”. It’s even in a popular song by Pink Floyd “Money, so they say, is the root of all evil today”. What a great rock song it is, but the lyrics get it wrong…
I really want so many people to know the freedom you can experience in Christ. That they would have their eyes opened to the hope of His calling. Freedom from shame, guilt, fear, hatred, bitterness, and so much more. And that they would know the hope that can only be found in Him. Hope to get one through the darkest of times.
I remember a night in the winter of 2014, sleeplessly laying there in bed, high off a few bags of heroin.
It was late, and I had spent another day going to work, coming home to my parent’s house, eating dinner and going to bed… All while feeling hopeless, lifeless and completely alone.
I slowly drifted off into a comatose state somewhere between life and death…
This Friday is known as “Good Friday.” The day we believe that Jesus died for our sins. He died and everyone there that day thought it was the end. That’s it, pack it up and let’s go home.
Can you imagine, you’ve been following the news about this crazy guy named Jesus of Nazareth for…
The easy what? Are we talking about dippy eggs? Breakfast food?
Nope, although I do enjoy a good plate of dippy eggs and buttered toast. We are talk about a Y-O-K-E not a yolk. It is a piece of farm equipment used to bind two animals together, so that they stay a pace of each other, equally bearing the burden they are carrying.
Jesus spoke of yokes, and He said this:
28 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
