“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” - Isaiah 55:8-9 What would your younger self think about the person you are today – where you live, who you call “friends,” your career, your goals, your entire life?

“Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.” - Ecclesiastes 11:4 Over the last couple of days, we have talked about the disease of perfectionism.

And we should not let perfectionism be the reason we do not pursue His...

Facing The Consequences
by Ministry Support on May 4th, 2022
“He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” - Genesis 16:12We have been discussing why we should not step outside the will of God.
