Stand Firm

Philippians 1:28 Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies.  Some of us have an endless list of problems confronting us. Circumstances surrounding us that cannot be easily resolved. Issues that have haunted us for far too long. Enemies or opponents that have constantly niggled us. Now, we […]

God Offers Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:4 He comforts us in all our troubles. Now we can comfort others when they are in trouble. We ourselves receive comfort from God. One of my favourite Bible verses is John 16:33 which says “In this world, you will have trouble. But be encouraged! I […]

1 Chronicles 12:18 “Peace to you, And peace to your helpers! For your God helps you.”  None of us are going to get it right all the time. One of my mentors regularly told me “You spell faith RISK!” And, you can’t take risks and always succeed. Failure is part […]

Have Faith in God

Romans 5:1 We have been made right with God because of our faith. Now we have peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ. Peace! That and to be happy were the only two things I ever wanted in life while using. I drank to forget and […]

Friends

Friends love through all kinds of weather. Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Proverbs 17:17 ~ Proverbs 27:6 ~ John 15:13
