Checked your joy level recently?

Last week I talked
about faith through surrender--not always an easy task.  As we surrender,
by faith, to His will we can do it grudgingly or joyfully.  Our choice is
to dutifully go about our tasks because we know it’s the ''right thing to
do", or serving with joy?  I would love to say I always serve with
joy, but alas it is not true.  We are often surrounded by "joy

Faith To Surrender

Early Sunday morning as I was driving to our Easter service, I was thinking about the
faith it takes to surrender to the Lord and His will for our lives.  I

Fear to Faith Wins!

You have "couraged-up", released your faith and are beginning

Faith Increased by Others

Word, those who have gone before and those we are sharing the earth currently
bring hope, encouragement and cause faith to increase in my heart. Faith comes
by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17 Hearing

Faith for an Unexpected Encounter

steps often lead us to unexpected encounters.  In the process of
crocheting a baby blanket for my nieces baby boy I encountered a problem.
I am using a variegated yarn (multiple colors in one skein) and instead
of it continuing a random pattern it began to form columns looking like I had
