Its THAT feeling…

Its  that feeling  – the feeling that something must be coming. That this cannot be all there is. That the answer is out there somewhere – but what could it be? Romans 8:12-25 helps us get to the bottom of this feeling, and helps us understand what we are expecting (hint – its closer than […]

What Is on Your Mind?

One possible translation of Proverbs 23:7 begins “For as one thinks in their heart, so they are.” Now THAT is something to think about! We tend to think that the stuff we don’t say aloud is safe and secure, tucked away in some dark crevice of our brain. All through scripture, however, is this constant refrain of how […]
