(August 2004) If a fire is to burn continually, it must constantly be supplied with new fuel or it will go out. It is no different spiritually. Without an uninterrupted supply of God's word and grace the flame of our faith would die. The fire of God's love can... more ...

God's help

(November 2003) "He may not help just when we plead, yet still God helps in time of need." This bit of wisdom has proven itself time and again, because our faithful God is only too glad to help. Often we do not even notice that He has helped. Even when we feel... more ...
