Adapted by permission from Our Daily Bread On occasion, I question whether I’m hearing from the Lord or another. I read a helpful article in Our Daily Bread and got permission to summarize some of the information. Satan: Tone: accusing, nagging, and mocking. Generates fear and causes confusion.

Counting Blessings Instead of Sheep

Encouragement for Writers

Whether we’re beginning writers or multi-published, we all get discouraged. Sometimes it’s tempting to say, “I quit.” But, I hope this post offers a bit of insight and hope.

Why Do I Worship Him

I gazed at the cloudy sky and pondered the question. A simple question yet profound. Why? I worship Him because He created me and gave me eternal life. I had a beginning, but He didn’t. He’s always been. He’s the great I am. He lives in unapproachable light. I worship Him because He’s perfect. I […]
