The power

Dear Faith Family, Then the Lord said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it, (Jeremiah 1:12). Growing up the son of a pastor had its privileges.

Pray With Your Eyes Open

Pray with your eyes open

Dear Faith Family, Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving, (Colossians 4:2). Let's flip through the photo album of God's Word. Can I point out three pictures in the album? Picture number one: And the two became one. And then there were four. The four became six. And then there were three! Elimelech and Naomi married. They had two sons, M...

A Teapot in a Tempest


Dear Faith Family, "Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God," (James 1:19-20) I'm a little teapot, Short and stout, Here is my handle Here is my spout When I get all steamed up, Hear me shout, Tip me over and pour me out! Are you starting to feel like ...
