  • Darkness cannot overcome the light of God

    It’s amazing to think that without light, there is complete darkness. Thank God, every morning he directs the sun to rise, which allows us to see without stumbling and having to feel our way around like blind people.

    Spiritually speaking, we were all born into spiritual darkness and are only given our vision when we invite Christ to transform us into a new creation.

  • Enjoying the abundant life at any age

    By Billy Holland

    We are all growing older. Thanks a lot, right? I realize that many will think this is not a very optimistic or positive thought, but it is a reality of life.

    I could have gone all day without hearing that, however, as with other topics, this too has a certain amount of accountability attached to it that can make a huge difference between dreading the future and having a healthy and positive attitude.

  • LIVING ON PURPOSE: Staying close with God and your spouse

    Last week, I was sitting in my office on a dreary afternoon, tapping on the keyboard and listening to the rain blowing against the window.

Then it suddenly dawned on me: This will be the 40th Valentine’s my wife and I have shared together.
