“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelations 12:10-11

Have you heard the saying that you can’t judge anyone until you walk a mile in their shoes? This is so true.

When I lost a pregnancy, I was so sure was a child promised to me by God, I was furious. I yelled. I screamed. Angry, I drove sixteen hours to a campground, yelling and screaming the entire drive, so I could spend some time with Him and hopefully gain some insight.read more

Are you a good example?
I can see your wheels turning, and you are wondering “an example for what?” I’d answer, “For living a good Christian life.” Do you walk the walk seven days per week or just barely limp a weak walk? Can your children, family, and friends see Christ and hear His words through your words and actions? Or are you different at church than the rest of the week?
