Jesus is for Everybody

Before we go any further on this blog. Before we write any more devotionals about anything, I just want to pause for a second and present the Gospel (the good news of God) to those who have never accepted Jesus, and to those who believe in God, but are not 100% sure they are going…

A Content Life

Don’t you love those moments when you feel at utter peace? Everything seems to be in the right place, the storms have calmed, and a clear mind is present. Contentment in these moments come easy.

Rebound Time

If anything is certain, it’s that life will always be unpredictable. Unfortunately, there is no map to where life will take us, nor is there a dictionary that will define every puzzling part of our lives. All this uncertainty can inevitably cause fear, anxiety and doubt to creep into our minds. But, when these feelings…

Disciplined Bible Reading

During this time of quarantine, I’ve finally figured out how to incorporate exercise into my daily life. To consistently exercise, I realized structure is necessary for me. Each day, I need a precise schedule to follow on what to do and how to do it – rest days included. Left to my own devices, I…
