Abraham’s faith took me by surprise this morning. If I have read Romans 4 once, I have read it at least a hundred times. But today was one of those days where the Word of God turned me upside down. When I read the words, “who, contrary to hope, in hope believed.” Contrary to hope basically says against all hope. The Scripture passage focused on Abraham’s faith. While Hebrews 11 might be the Hall of Faith. Roman’s 4 is Abraham’s induction into the Hall of Faith Ceremony. The whole chapter …

One room at a time, I removed and resurfaced old fixtures and features and brought in new materials and elements. I transformed the entire house room by room.

Life is unfair. We all know it. We all feel it, even from a very early age. My 2 year old granddaughter shows me that every time her parents tell her no or take something away from her that she wants at that moment. Looking back across my own life I see situations I deem, or at least at the moment as unfair. I know I am not alone
No doubt David was experiencing a stressful situation when he wrote Psalm 69:1-3. Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying; my throat is dry; my eyes fail while I wait for my God.

Acts 3 is a story of needs and expectations. It begins Peter and John on their way to the temple because it was the hour of prayer. Take a moment to read the story in Acts 3:1-9.
If we see a person with an attitude of gratitude, their basic approach to life would be thankful. The book of Psalms show us that David had attitude of gratitude, especially towards God.

I know the answer to my question, “Do you want to be a wife who prays for your husband?” The answer is “Yes, I want to pray for my husband” or you would have never read this far. I am like you, I want to be a wife who prays for my husband. We should be the one person our husband can count on to pray for him. So dear sister, I want to encourage you to pray for your husband, because he needs it. He has so many …
