Despise All Obstructions to Knowing God

Think on this for a minute. What if you could see God in all His glory and truth? How awesome would that be? If something blocked your view of any part of Him, would you not despise the obstruction and want it removed?

Teaching Your Children To Be Apologists

My introduction to apologetics began when I was new in my walk as a Christian over twenty-eight years ago. Since that time, there have been countless conversations between my husband and me examining various teachings and belief systems that contradict our biblical faith.

God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever

But

I also know God.
Nothing on earth compares to Him.
The pain of life is temporary.
He is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Forever

To Him be the glory! Amen!
