Promise for Today – Strength for Tomorrow

July 21, 2016

We find strength when we learn to wait on God.

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! Psalm 27:14 NKJV

 

Wait on God

The promise for today has a condition: waiting. But finding strength for today–and tomorrow– is God’s promise. Isaiah 40:31 carries the same thought and promise.

Five Doors You Need to Open in Life

May 19, 2016

There are doors we enter and doors we exit. Which doors in life do we need to open that will contribute most to our success as a Christian?

When our recent home remodeling eliminated the door in this photo, I grabbed it for re-purposing, thinking it would make wonderful yard art for my back yard. But that door soon took on a deeper meaning.

There are doors we enter and doors we exit. We’ll find open doors and closed doors. But which doors should we open that will contribute most to our success as a Christian? I thought of at least five kinds of doors (and there are so many more) we all need and want in our lives.
