Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” God has given us all common sense and free will to make choices and decisions in our lives. Even though God has given us […]

Luke 12:34

Luke 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Earthly treasures seem so inviting, yet when we get them, they wither away so quickly. The world tells us “you’ve got to try this”, “you deserve this”, “your life will be so much better if you have this”. It doesn’t matter what the “this” […]
