God Pursues Our Hearts

God chases after our hearts. “‘What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that…

Words Have Power

Scripture Reading: James 3 Words have power. Thinking back, I have said numerous things I wish I could have said differently or decided not to say at all. I can also point my finger on instances where I wish I could have said something, but stayed quiet instead.  If words didn’t have power, we wouldn’t…
