Take Up Your Cross October 3rd 2014


Many of us have gotten ourselves into strange and unappealing circumstances where we have been tried and tested by God.  Man has cried out to God from prison, harrowing circumstances near the shadow of death because of accidents and situations of impending doom, or from the hopelessness of dependence upon drugs or alcohol.

God will use any circumstance in our life that will get our full attention to swing towards Him; even from a belly of a whale.  ...

Take Up Your Cross October 2nd 2014


This Psalm, like other Psalms, is a song likely meant to be sung in services in biblical times; worshiping and lifting up God.  This Psalm was inspired and written by David in some low and desperate times in his life.  We all have desperate times in life.
