busy-life-resized

Life is complicated, complex full of ups and downs. It is up to us to lay all of our worries at Jesus' feet. We also need to share with Him what's in our hearts, what's occupying our minds and thoughts. Yet many of us rely in our own abilities to deal with life and all of our situations. A common temptation for all of us is the sin of worry. No one is completely immune....

LIVING IN TENTS

These all died in faith and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth (Hebrews 11:13, NKJV). I remember living in tents and each time it was a temporary abode. I also remember the work required to setup a tent and then camp. It was hard work, but when you're young some of these things can actually be fun. The first time was in Boy Scout Camp where I le...
