When Your Brook Dries Up

Think back to time in your life when something in your life, maybe without warning, dried up. Everything was running smoothly, then suddenly, the wheels fall off.

Mayday! Mayday!

“A faith not tested is a faith not trusted.” That is a phrase we believe to be true. It is easier to trust God when the seas are calm and crystal clear than when you are in the midst of a fierce and violent storm and your boat is seemingly about to capsize. Just as you will not know if […]

On Every Narrow Bridge

Following God’s perfect plan for your life isn’t always a smooth ride. There will be tall mountains to climb, deep valleys to ride through, narrow rickety bridges to cross, storms that will “rain on your parade,” hot dry deserts that will leave you parched, and raging rivers ready to drown you.
