God Turns Broken Pieces into Masterpieces

God Turns Broken Pieces into Masterpieces
We all make mistakes. It’s a fact of life. We lead ourselves into disagreeable situations by habit, an inability to trust our instincts, or just the natural lack of foresight that comes from not completely knowing the future. We all improvise through life—sometimes we eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats us. This is true of all living things, from the smallest insect to the largest mammal. We are lucky enough as human beings that our missteps...

I Was Killing Myself Spiritually. I Had to Let Go of the Anger, Grudges and Forgive.

I Was Killing Myself Spiritually. I Had to Let Go of the Anger, Grudges and Forgive.
After the drowning incident, my view on God was forever changed. My perception of Him was much more clear-headed, not so clouded by previous history. With clarity came guilt.

Too Blessed To Be Stressed! Praise Jesus!
Have you ever heard the saying, “I am too blessed to be stressed”? When we feel blessed, the problems we encounter in life seem inconsequential to the main thing, our relationship with Jesus.  It is my prayer that you will be touched, and become an instrument for Him. It is my prayer that you find hope in His love and strength through His word.  I hope that you will look outside and see the many beautiful miracles happening all around you,... 

The Journey to Have a Purpose

The Journey to Have a Purpose
I grew up in an alcoholic home. My dad was a violent alcoholic and my mom was a mess because of it. I won’t go into details because it would take too long and there are many people who have also lived through what I have. My marriage was a complete mess too. We were both control freaks trying to control one another. He was a major partier and I only did once in a while (after I had kids when we were still together). He cheated on me constantly and... 

When I Say I Am Christian

When I Say I Am Christian
When I say …”I am a Christian,” I’m not shouting “I am saved” I’m whispering “I was lost!” That is why I chose this way.” When I say…”I am a Christian,” I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and need someone to be my guide. When I say…”I am a Christian,” I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m...

I Am Just an Instrument I am just an instrument That His Great Will commands Each thing I appear to do Is guided by His Hands Even as I write this He makes my pen to speak When I think about His Home It makes my mind go weak We cannot see His purpose As we live life day to day But when we need to seek His Help We simply have to pray Dear God, let me live my life As fully as I can Let me help contribute to The Brotherhood of Man ... 

God’s Boxes

God’s Boxes
God’s Boxes Author Unknown I have in my hands two boxes, Which God gave me to hold. He said, “Put all your sorrows in the black box, And all your joys in the gold.” I heeded His words, and in the two boxes, Both my joys and sorrows I stored, But though the gold became heavier each day, The black was as light as before. With curiosity, I opened the black, I wanted to find out why, And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole, Which...
