It’s OK if….
What do I mean by “It’s ok if…”? I want to touch on disappointment. Life has its ups and downs. Life has its setbacks, and disappointment is a part of it. Disappointment is a feeling of sadness and displeasure caused by the unfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations. I think in life, we have to […]
This is an important week for all Americans. We have a new president that is going to be inaugurated on Friday. We should always keep our leaders in prayer. The Bible says that God commands us to pray for all that are in authority, that we might lead a quiet and peaceable life in all […]
When GOOD is Great!
When good is great! Maybe you’ve never heard of it this way, but that’s what we are going to discuss today.

I want to talk today about breaking out of a “Spiritual Slump”. If you follow baseball or football, some important games are going on right now. In baseball, they will sometimes talk about a hitter that is experiencing a “slump”. I was watching football over the weekend and they were talking about one particular quarterback […]
