Add Your Drop!

"Do I really need to pray? After all, all the big men of God are praying, isn't that enough? People are praying, God will hear them." That's the devil talking to you. Shut him up!!! You might think your prayers are only a little drop of water, but it only takes one drop for a [...]

According to DQ: Miracles

Tuesday morning.Family devotion.I asked Bumble-Bee to suggest a praise song so we could all sing along.

Man’s not . . .

2 years ago, it was my couch. Today, I’m in bed, but not because I don’t feel like doing what I have to do – I’m down with a cold. Still, I’m glad that God sends messages to us to keep our spirits alive even when our bodies are highly unable to assist.

When Anger Finds the Dark

Be angry but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. Ephesians 4:26 Sunset. When the sun goes down, all that remains is darkness. Anger. Every time there is anger, sin lurks in the corner, looking for the opportunity to take over. Darkness. Every work of sin is born in [...]
