    When I think about having wisdom, I am reminded of king Solomon.

    If you remember the popular story about David and Bathsheba, Solomon was their only son and also became king of Israel after David passed away.

    In I Kings Chapter 3, we read that Solomon sincerely loved God and obeyed his laws. Verse 4 records him offering 1,000 burnt offerings upon the altars at Gibeon, and as the story continues, we notice that something very special happens to him.

  • We do not have to look very far to find someone who needs a miracle. Many are suffering some type of crisis with everything from health problems, their children and grief over a loss, to finances, marriage issues and addictions.

    When difficult situations are presented, we become sympathetic, but how often do we consider that God may have brought these individuals to our attention so that we can not only pray, but intervene and help meet their needs? Instead of just discussing the situation and having pity, maybe we can become the miracle they are praying for.

    However, after continuously putting on the pounds, her mother encouraged her to get a physical.

  • I have been privileged to sit under many great speakers and teachers in my life. Human behavior and spirituality have always been fascinating to me, and it’s an honor to be involved with the work of the ministry.

    There are mysteries and complicated questions that we will never understand while we live in this realm, but, there are also practical lessons that God can reveal to us when we diligently seek him.
