I Gave God What I Enjoyed & He Gave Me Something Better

Giving up anything that we enjoy is hard to do, but when it goes against God, we don't really have much choice. Well...we do...if we want it to be about ourselves. There is a lot in my life that I do for me, not God, no matter the excuse. How I am entertained is often … Continue reading I Gave God What I Enjoyed & He Gave Me Something Better

(Updated: 7:27/2020- Added links for all referenced scripture.

During this past week, weeks before, and coming days the message of our Savior will be discussed a lot. The only problem I see with this, and in any case, when we go over scripture, is that we do not always apply what we read or hear. We do not always connect.  We do not … Continue reading We’re Desensitized To Bible Stories & It Needs To Stop!
