Opportunity for Trust

Too often lately it seems like the sky is falling. You’ve been there, right? We each have seasons that seem more trying than others.

Continually Woven For Good

Today’s verse is one I remind myself of daily.

Letting Doubt Win

Today’s verse speaks about letting doubt win. Matthew 14:31 says: “Jesus immediately stretched out His hand and lifted him up and said, ‘What little faith you have!

How Can I Know This?

We should all want to do what is right and … Continue reading Honorably in Everything

The Message translates this as “God, You’re my last chance of the day.” Most translations focus on the Psalmist calling out day and night to God. The Passion Translation uses the phrase … Continue reading Continually Saves

Stretch Out Your Hand

When Moses was given a special mission by God, the doubts seeped in and he didn’t have the confidence to move forward. God provided a staff. When tossed down, the staff became a serpent. If that wasn’t strange enough, God told Moses to stretch out his hand, to reach, to grab the serpent by the … Continue reading Stretch Out Your Hand
