Psalm 116:6 The Lord protects the simple and the childlike; I was facingdeath, and then he saved me. Psalm 119:130 As your plan unfolds, even the simple can understand it. Matthew 5:37 Say just a simple ‘Yes, I will’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Your word isenough. To strengthen […]

Encourage Each Other

2 Corinthians 1:4 tells us that God comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others with the same comfort He has shown us. At Narre Warren Baptist Church over the last few weeks we have been looking at a series called ‘Version 2.0’ and […]

A Life-Long Process

Hebrews 12:10 Our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us so that we might share in His holiness. Recovery is a life- long process. I love people who say to me “I have […]
