The Spirit and the mind

I am convinced that God is constantly moving through our lives directing us toward His ultimate perfected plan for us. He is constantly allowing us to learn from the countless situation and circumstances that we face daily when we are willing to seek His guidance. What I find odd is that we are not always…

Unbelief

As recorded in the gospel of Mark, a concerned father whose son was possessed by a mute spirit asked Christ to heal his son. Christ said that all things were possible if you believe. The father replied: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:24 In our day it seems to be easier to disbelieve…

The Spirit is near

Speaking about the Spirit is not something that I have expert knowledge. I am instead only one of the many pots that the Potter made. God made each of us quite uniquely. My personal relationship with the Spirit can be at times delightful or painful. This is because God is a fixture and I tend…

All I can do

According to the Word, each of us was individually and uniquely made. It was God that blew the breath of life into these bodies giving us meaning and purpose. It was the same God that gave us our gifts and talents that were to be used in helping us achieve the divine missions that He…
