Have you ever stuck your fingers together with superglue? Ugh… But as irritating as it is, eventually you can get your fingers pried back apart. A lot of people use nail polish remover, but you can also keep running really warm water over your fingers and soon it will disintegrate the glue. However it’s still … More The Ultimate Superglue
I have to admit there have been more than a few times in my life when I found myself thinking, “If I were God, I’d be zapping that person into oblivion right now!” Not good – but haven’t you been there too? Thankfully God is God and I’m not; because at times my lack of … More Thankfully I’m Not God
If you’re like me, you grew up thinking you needed to look like a model or famous actress in order to be popular. You pleaded with your parents for the latest fashionable clothes.

Have you ever just sat staring at the different cloud formations in the sky? Beautiful, yet sometimes so complex! How about when you’re in a plane on an overcast cloudy day.

I was sitting at my desk praying and wondering what to write for this post, when all of a sudden I found myself glued to some old Bible study notes. One verse in Isaiah 53, I found myself coming back to time and again. It was v. 11: “Out of the anguish of his soul he … More Shedding Tears For Jesus
Some days I just feel tired – how about you? The thing is, a lot of times I’m not even really sure why I feel tired. It’s not like I just ran a marathon (like some of you I know). Sometimes I feel tired even when I’ve gone to bed at a decent hour the night … More Keep On Keepin’ On
The title of this post sounds like something you’ve heard kids scream on more than one occasion, right?
