I was blessed to have parents who always believed in me. Their willingness to be there for me meant the world. It gave me strength and confidence to move forward when, at times, I didn’t think I could.
I boarded the train for home after attending my sister’s funeral in Georgia. A friend agreed to pick me up at the station, but after arriving, I waited and waited with no sign of him at all.
A brother's love is stronger than a friend’s love because your brother has been with you from the very beginning.
What I love about these verses is that God is once again showing me how a shift in perspective will tremendously benefit me.
During the pandemic, Women’s Ministries at Sligo church in Takoma Park, Md., offered a way to regain balance in all areas of life, introducing the “Wellness Wheel”—a series of online presentations on creating balance. The series met bi-weekly on Sabbaths for four months via Zoom.
To me, this verse means that I do not have to worry and that I can trust God. He knows what He is doing and has a plan for me.
I instantly knew that God was about to become real to my children and that this experience would stay with them forever, if only they would believe.
When I was young in the faith, I had a lot of trouble with my “old man.” The King James Version said he’d been destroyed, but mine sometimes seemed to be alive and well! I wondered if I was not a true Christian, although I loved Jesus and had given my life to Him.
While I was worrying, God was working.
Although it has been a rough time for me, God gave me the strength to get through those times, and this verse has helped me a lot.
