The act of waiting is not new for God’s people. Since Adam and Eve were removed from the Garden of Eden, we have been waiting to be rescued, delivered, and redeemed. Abraham and Sarah waited for a child, the Israelites waited to be delivered from Egypt, David waited to be King, Joseph waited to beContinue reading “Waiting and Hoping”
Psalm 34:14 says, “seek peace and pursue it.” Isaiah 1:17-18 says, “learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

I, and I’m sure everyone else, love when times are good, when everything seems to be going right, and it feels like everything is in our favor.

He describes himself as “the worst ofContinue reading “Grace”
The art of cultivating is in our veins. We are made in the image of God who is The Creator! If we are honest, we all like to create things on some level.
