Why me?

Where were you when you heard the bad news that changed everything? “I wonder if I should I try Mango or Peach,” I thought as I stood staring at the aisle of endless options for sparkling water. My phone rang, and I thought I recognized the number, so I answered it.  I held the phone […]

Do you tiptoe or dive into the pool?

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 I stood there at the register in Walmart patiently waiting for the cashier to ring up my items, when I felt God impress on my heart to give her the cash in my wallet. What? It wasn’t a lot of money, but I dismissed the thought […]
