Help and Hope in Trials

Why is God allowing me to suffer?, we cry, searching for answers as to why something is- or is not- happening in our life. The problem of pain can create spiritual distance between us and God, and even cause some of us to abandon our faith. But the verse I talk about...

A bigger story than you

Could you be involved in a bigger story than you think? And if so, how do you know how to play your part? This question is the focus of today’s ten minute podcast… and we'll look at a verse in 1 Chronicles 17, which is a book in the bible I’m sure you’ve spent LOTS of...

The School of Faith

Is there any such thing as a school of faith? If so, how do we enroll? The Bible seems to point to such a school, but you don’t go to a building or website to attend it. It begins when you say yes to God. Your classes are your circumstances, and your curriculum is...

The “buts” that steer our faith

What happens when you feel that God is calling you to do something, but your fear is as big as your faith?  In Numbers 13, twelve spies have been commissioned to go into the promised land to scout it out- not to see if they should go in, but how they should go in. But...
