Focused On Jesus

Matthew 14:30

I’ve always been impulsive. I was one of the first to follow Jesus. I didn’t even know who He was, but when He said “Come, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19), though I didn’t know what He meant, I dropped my fishing nets and followed. After three years, I […]

Step of Faith

Matthew 14:28-29

Today was a busy day! Early this morning we heard that King Herod killed John the Baptist. Jesus seemed to take this news pretty hard; “When Jesus heard what had happened, He withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place” (Matthew 14:13).

Great Expectations

Philippians 1:20

In the message “Careful Thought To Our Ways” we saw how God is the Director of our steps and how we must carefully (and prayerfully) develop goals and plans which glorify His name. And though our true goal should always be to fully release our life to God and worship Him for all eternity, each […]

Careful Thought To Our Ways

Proverbs 14:8

**********I wrote this message several years ago but it has a new meaning with the news of my baby sister’s brain cancer. Thank you so much for your prayers – I received over 2600 prayer messages from all around the world. Life is fragile and very short. Please read this message and ask where it […]
