Edward P Pusey
Do not be discouraged when you face trials of many kinds. This could be God’s instrument to captivate you. God wants to occupy every recess within. He knows your capacity. He knows what you are capable of. He knows what you can handle.
The heart is big, very big,
None of Jobs friends really understood what Job was going through. They had no personal experience the same as his. Though they cared about him, they failed to know how to properly care for him. So they had to idly sit by and watch him.
“Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.” Proverbs 3:25-26
Job had a story in the Bible like none other. Despite his long

Worry is such an incredible waste of time, energy and anything of value that it will cost you. Because you will always have to make an exchange when you choose worry over faith. Worry will cause you to take detours on your journey not meant for you. Worry will derail purpose and potential in exchange for a one way ticket to nowhere. When
Usually around the first of the year motivation is high to make good, make change and better our lives. People make resolutions that usually fade by mid February.
Monday morning rolls around and maybe you’re a bit upset and regret some things you did, some things you said or maybe some things you ate over the weekend?

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Rev. 21:4
Sometimes we just don’t have room to cry—too beat down and can’t spare the energy. Other times we haven’t the room in our heart to produce any more tears. Have you been there? Then this post is for you.
I was woken in the night this past night by a disturbing dream. If you’ve followed along for any
Daniel was a man who never compromised his heart in the presence of tangible delicacies.
Prominence, wealth, influence, status…privilege. These are the things that can tempt and corrupt, even spoil the perfectly good soil of mans heart. But Daniel denied it all.
Daniel had a gift to See. He was what the Bible calls a Seer. He had encounters. Not only with God, but with Angels. He literally talked to angels who came representing the Lord (the Bible is very clear he conversed with an angel named Michael). Wow. That’s enough to
There are dozens and dozens of reasons people fail to reach a health goal. Some poor decisions are obvious. For example, choosing a dozen donuts over a dozen eggs. Over the years I have worked with many women, helping them get a handle on their nutrition and providing guidance and encouragement to gain territory in their wellness goals.

Nothing surprises God. He looks at every single bit of creation and His Created…you…through the eyes of what He designed and made you to do.
All God needs if for us to agree to trust Him and then we begin to flourish and walk into every ounce of possibility He has declared faithfully.

Living life to the fullest is a compilation of foundational decisions on life philosophy –what you believe and stand for–and then managing those decisions every day. Each day knowing you are better made than the
