Welcome again to this week's word for the week. You can learn a lot about life while engaged in everyday living. There are a number of things that you encounter in your daily life that can teach a lot if you pay attention. Nothing you go through is in vain. That's not my main point this week but I wanted to start out by saying that first as it will fit in to our word for the week.
Everyone faces problems. We all know that and once you've been saved for a period of time you soon learn there's nothing to panic about just because you face troubles. The real test is not when things first happen but rather when they linger. That's fine and we all know that and have been there. So one of my points this week is not what you ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I'm convinced about a few things in life. This is not a list of all of them but rather just a few that are relevant to this week's word. I'm convinced that God is real. I'm convinced that walking with Him has its ups and downs but the good far outweighs the bad. It's not even close. I'm also convinced on another thing. I'm convinced that God gives us all a choice.
The gift of God is a free gift that is given to us. Jesus said we didn't choose Him but rather that He chose us. When I first got saved I thought for sure my life would be filled with a long list of demands. However, I kept reading the Bible and I started to realize something very quickly. God ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I'm going to go in a different direction this week. If you are one of those who read this word for the week often then I want to encourage you this week. Brace yourself for a special surprise because we will definitely be dealing with something that is out of the ordinary. So let's get to our point this week which is brief and yet powerful.
There are billions of people who have heard of God. There are hundreds of millions who have given their life to Him. Then there are an untold number of those who actually walk with Him. My point in all of that is simple. While many may claim to know Him how many actually walk with Him? You know celebrities but do you actually walk with them? ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I wish I had an answer as to the reason God may be doing something or allowing something in someone's life. I wish everything God was doing made sense and that nobody felt confused or even helpless at times. I wish there was an answer to every question or concern anybody has. The reality is that there is no such thing. So now that we know that let's look at something that will bless you this week.
I focus a lot of what one may need to to in order to have a more meaningful walk with Christ. That perspective is not incorrect as there are a multitude of people who need to simply get started. They need to actually do the things they know they need to do. They spend a lot of time ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There are a multitude of things in life that do not always make sense. There are tests and trials that we face that do not make sense. Various things happen at times that do not make sense. Sometimes you may study the word of God and it does not make sense. The problem is not what does not make sense. The question is what do you do when things don't make sense?
I want you to think long and hard about what I'm going to say this week. I'm going to purposely try to be more brief this week for a reason. I understand that it's easier to keep going back to read something that is short and yet thought provoking. This week is more than just a word to stir something up inside of ...
