Whose Plan Is It- Yours or Gods?

Today we want to briefly look at Proverbs 16:9. Below is that verse in three different translations/versions. “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” (NIV) “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” (NLT) “We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live […]

I Had Hoped…

We ask you to close your eyes and think back to a time in your life when the outcome was not what you had hoped for. It could be you asked Santa for a bike and instead got a toy truck or a doll. You worked hard to gain the lead role in the school play or to become the […]
