Have you ever experienced times that leave you hanging between a rock and a hard place: times of confusion, fear, sorrow, loneliness? Relationships may fail; precious dreams die. Winters appear bleak; answers won’t come. Our circumstances vary, but we all go through them.
Jesus’s Help in Hard Times
In those times I’ve learned to rehearse some things about God, times when Jesus has walked with me, held my hand, and brought me through the hard places. These are 12 things I can remember that keep me from being discouraged. And this list is only a small portion of what I’ve recorded in my memory bank from Jesus’s track record of faithfulness. Jesus’s help in hard times is readily available. (Be sure and enter the book/drawing/giveaway today by following the instructions below.) Read more

Whether you’re single or married, you are not alone in your desire to be loved.
Valentine’s Day can bring a smile to the faces of those who feel loved, or a deep longing in the hearts of those who don’t.
The truth is, people spend a majority of their lives searching for love that won’t fail, but many never find it.
Do you want this kind of love? It’s the kind of love that will always be there for you.
It’s the Valentine God sends to your heart every day, every year, all of your life. God’s love is the kind that never fails.
What is it like?
Is it too good to be true?
Is it so hard to believe that you are loved, really loved by Him?
Read the short poem below.
Then listen to the powerful words of the song following the poem.
Will you embrace His love?

The God Who Will Never Let Go
Rebecca Barlow Jordan
Someone cut the power, unplugged your hope,
short-circuited your expectations, and left you wandering in the dark.
And questions rise like ghosts in the night:
Is anyone there? Does anyone care? Read more
