A Christian Leader’s Confession: I Love God’s Word!


God's Word is Love

I love God’s Word.  To some people that might sound weird. A little fanatical. Some may even say my love is misplaced: it’s OK to enjoy reading the Bible,but you should reserve your love for God, right? The Bible is more than just a book to read.

Pay Attention to the Obstacles in Your Life


God is constantly removing obstacles from our path or placing obstacles in our way. Both reveal his compassion and power in our lives.  Psalm 114 describes in beautiful poetic imagery God’s power on Israel’s behalf as they came out of Egypt on a journey to the Promised Land.
