“So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy.” - John 16:22   As Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes 3:4, there is “a time to cry and a time to laugh.

by Ministry Support on August 17th, 2022
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” - Psalm 30:5   To grieve is to be human.

Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s clock.

Unforgiveness Is A Prison
by Ministry Support on September 2nd, 2020
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3)  In the first verse of Ephesians chapter four, Paul calls himself a prisoner of the Lord. He has been beaten and abused by th...  Read More
