When we have a little we want more. When we have enough it’s still never enough. It’s a vicious cycle that keeps our minds constantly on what we want and how to get it instead of being content with what we have. It’s as if our desire for more is like a thirst that can never be quenched.
The truth is that even Continue reading
God loves us so much. He blesses us so much and they are immeasurable. It’s amazing to me how He can love us so much when we are obviously so undeserving. But I am truly grateful for His blessings.
God’s Word tells us that He will withhold nothing from those that love Him. God enjoys blessing us. He wants to do that. But many times instead of opening ourselves up to receive the great things God has for us we cling to what we believe is best. We often come to God with our minds made up about what we think we truly want and need, without ever asking God if that’s truly His will for us.
It’s not wrong Continue reading
People are still talking about Hologram Tupac two weeks later. Who is Hologram Tupac? Well, for those of you that don’t know, it’s a digital hologram of the late rapper Tupac Shakur who was murdered 16 years ago at the age of 25 in Las Vegas. His murder is still unsolved.
Hologram Tupac made his debut at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California Sunday April 15, 2012, and simultaneously freaked out, surprised, and entertained thousands of people during a set with fellow rap artist Snoop Dogg. The appearance of Hologram Tupac was the idea of producer/rapper Dr. Dre. He was given the okay to use the image of Tupac Shakur by Tupac’s Mother Afeni Shakur, who was said to be thrilled with the performance. The use of Tupac’s image in this way has stirred up a lot of moral debate about using holographic technology to digitally “resurrect” a long deceased artist.
Here is Continue reading
We are all so blessed. We have been given a gift that none of us deserves. Yet Jesus laid down His life for us anyway. All who choose to follow Him now have Eternal Life. Through Jesus we have been reconciled to God. He didn’t have to do what He did for us but He did it because He loves us. How amazing is that. Jesus died to pay for our sins so that we could be free from them. He freed us from the bondages of sin and death. We have been made new through Christ. It’s almost too much to comprehend.
He died and Continue reading

“Called To Controversy” by Ruth Rosen tells the story of Ruth’s Father Moishe Rosen and the founding on the ministry Jews For Jesus. This Autobiography/Biography tells the story of how Moishe, a Jew, came to know the Lord and how God led Him to spread the Good News to the Jewish people and ultimately created the ministry Jews For Jesus.
I was very much looking forward to reading this book. I’ve known about Jews For Jesus for many years. I’ve even read some of the free ebooks on the site that tell the stories of Jews that came to know Jesus and finally accept that He is indeed the Messiah that they have been looking and waiting for.
Many people don’t believe that Jews need to come to Christ. It’s a common belief that because they Continue reading
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
Why is it that when things go wrong one of the first things that people do is blame God? God is not responsible for the ugly things in our lives. God’s thoughts for us are of peace and love, never evil. We are quick to forget that when bad things come our way or we don’t get our way. It is because He loves that we don’t always get our way. God’s plans for us are far greater than our plans for ourselves.
It is because Continue reading
Nothing lasts forever. Not even our troubles. The tide always turns. When we are deep in sorrow we forget that. Because in those moments we are unable to see clearly. We only know what we feel. And that’s that the pain is unbearable. We are unable to look ahead and see a brighter day.
Whether you can Continue reading
