How many of us have troubled hearts? Whether it is due to what is going on in this world, family problems, or health issues, we let them trouble our hearts. Take a look at the waffle, stop drooling and look at it. It is not smooth, there are indentations in it and some of those … Continue reading A Troubled Heart
As we start this journey of Jesus preparing His disciples and us for a life without His physical presence there are two things that come up at the end of the chapter. One is our attitude and the warning of fear.
As we walk along the path on this Earth one thing is for certain and that is the uncertain. None of us know what tomorrow will hold.

Same with our speech, Proverbs 25:11-25; A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of … Continue reading It Is All About Timing
