I don’t usually make a “New Years Resolution” but there is something I really want to do. I want to write. And the best practice to do that is to maintain a blog.

He is always encouraging me to...

Talk about a hard word...
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9, 10 ESV) Could I...
This verse was echoing in my head today...
